Füssen - A Winter FairytaleEnjoy sparkling winter walking in Füssen and the magical area of Oberammergau and King Ludwig’s castles.
Bavaria is a true gem of Germany; rich in history, old time traditions and striking Alpine beauty.
Bavaria is a wonderful place to visit at any time of the year, but we happen to think that winter is extra special. Feel invigorated by the pure mountain air; enjoy long periods of fine weather with clear visibility allowing for spectacular views of snow capped mountain peaks, fairytale castles and stunning winter scenery. We walk through well-tracked gentle forest roads and paths magically transformed by fresh layers of snow.
We are based in the delightful, cosy, 700 year old town of Füssen in the heart of the finest holiday region. Its attractive location on the edge of the Alps never fails to captivate visitors; formed by imposing peaks and an idyllic lake land area, it lies at an altitude of 800-1,200 meters; the highest town in Bavaria!
This is 'Königswinkel', home to Bavaria's most attractive attractions such as the stunning castles of Neuschwanstein, Hohenschwangau, and Linderhof, places of paradise - as King Ludwig used to call them. And best of all we can experience these royal palaces and their settings without the milling crowds of summer visitors.
