Leisure & Culture

Even though many peoples think so it were NOT the makers of Disneyland or the Las Vegas Illusionists who brought Neuschwanstein Castle – known around the world and even in mandarin or kanji as Cinderellas Castle – in scene. Neuschwanstein Castle was built by the Bavarian King Ludwig II.

But there is more worth seeing: Visit the impressing testimonial of architectural art, the castles Linderhof, Hohenschwangau as well as the Castle Füssen and the Wieskirche, a marvellous baroque church.

Scenery that inpires

If you have already explored the immediate surroundings by foot or bike it is not the question what else there is to see but rather, what to see first!

Every moment, every hour, every day - pure pleasure

Whether you visit Munich's (100 km) German Museum, go shopping in Munich's Theatinerstrasse, or visit Innsbruck's (100 km) Alpine Zoo. Or maybe you'd rather go to Lake Constance and the "Drei-Länder-Eck", Mainau Island (120 km), or the Zugspitze. Alternatively, explore Schloß Herrenchiemsee (160 km) or Kempten (30 km), one of Germany's oldest cities. The choice is yours!
Many of these destinations can be reached by public transport or local bus tour operators.

Naturally fascinating - the natural monuments around lake Weissensee, the river Lech waterfall, moors and raised bogs, meandering rivers and sky-high rugged rock formations - the Allgäu offers a perfect insight into the natural complexity

Cultural uniqueness -

  • Roman origins along ancient Via Claudia Augusta
  • The Wittelsbach dynasty's monumental buildings Hohenschwangau and Neuschwanstein
  • Violin and lute crafting in Füssen
  • Wieskirche world cultural heritage

These alone would add up to a more than abundant holiday schedule.

Traditions -
Bavarian traditional costumes and Christian roots have always characterized the region along river Lech - glorious churches and chapels create fond memories, both in a religious and cultural significance. But also joyful festivities throughout the year - from erection of the Maypole to romantic Christmas markets - clearly show: This is an area to enjoy life.

Concerts of international reputation -
famous churches, abbeys and historic towns provide the perfect stage for high-class orchestras, ensembles and soloists.

  • Neuschwanstein, stage for the autumnal concerts in the castle
  • Violin-makers historical Füssen sets the frame for the festival "Vielsaitig" (a play on words that links the instruments chords to versatile)
  • Ottobeuren, one of the biggest abbeys in Europe, and since 60 years home of the world famous concerts in the Basilica.
