Fussen - A Winter FairytaleEnjoy sparkling winter walking in Fussen and the magical area of Oberammergau and King Ludwig’s castles.
Bavaria is a true gem of Germany; rich in history, old time traditions, with a unique identity, and a striking beauty.
A land of fairy tales, 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 welltracked 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, just north of the Austrian border, and 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 lakeland area, this was the inspiriation for Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake, at an altitude of 800-1,200 metres it’s the highest town in Bavaria!
This the Königswinkel, home to Bavaria’s most attractive attractions such as the stunning and beautifully located 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.

A big bonus was being able to visit Odessa, which was previously cancelled, and well worth the visit. However, the real holiday highlight was Santorini!
