FÜSSEN - A WINTER FAIRYTALE

Enjoy sparkling winter walking in the German Alps and around the magical 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 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. The surrounding countryside is blessed with a number of large and small lakes, a paradise for walkers. We walk through well-tracked gentle forest roads and paths magically transformed by fresh layers of snow.

We are based in the delightful and cosy, 700 year old town of Füssen, just north of the Austrian border, 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 inspiration for Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake. At an altitude of 800 metres, it is amongst the highest towns in Bavaria.

This is the Königswinkel, home to Bavaria’s most charming attractions such as the stunning and beautifully located palace castles of Neuschwanstein, Hohenschwangau, and Linderhof, 'places of paradise', as King Ludwig II used to call them. The introverted king built the castles in order to withdraw from public life - today ironically hordes of tourists come in their masses to view his private refuge; luckily we visit in the quieter winter months, avoiding the crowds. Our first departure will allow us to see the New Year in this winter wonderland.

And at the end of a pleasant day’s walking in this winter paradise, we can relax in our welcoming, family run spa and wellness hotel, and admire the surrounding alpine scenery.
