The Allgäu •
Royal castles, mountains, lakes - The Ostallgäu has a lot to offer
The Allgäu is one of the most beloved recreation regions in Germany.
In East Allgäu, and particularly in the Schwangauer countryside, this is especially true. Our location in Brunnen, is directly on the Forggensee, and here health and rejuvenation are all around.
Schwangau is also the land of the Bavarian kings, high-reaching mountains, green plains, deep blue mountain lakes, and has something to offer for the whole family.
Here is where King Ludwig II built Neuschwanstein Castle, his most famous residence. He could not have chosen a more beautiful place!
The surrounding area offers a never-ending list of things to do. Restorative hikes in the refreshing mountain air, are only one example. Also nearby is the Tegelberg Gondola, that climbs to 1700 meters. From the top of the Tegelberg, one has a panoramic view and a gorgeous vantage point to take in the breathtaking mountains scenery and the view of the towns below. You can hike the wildly beautiful Pöllatschlucht up to Neuschwanstein Castle. Or you can choose to immerse yourself in the Allgäuer way of life by visiting a local cheese maker or by spending an evening in a local brewery with freshly brewed Bavarian beer.
The Allgäu offers recreation and wonderful vacation activities for the whole family.
