Leisure tips

Mountains, lakes, castles - a royal region

When nature created the Allgäu region, she lavished it with beauty. Sublime views of castles, high up to the mountains or across lakes that glitter in the sun: your eyes will not tire of the Allgäu.
The "Allgäu Footnotes" is what you will remember from your hiking tours. Every step you take, your eyes will meet beautifully cultivated landscapes and lively regional traditions. Be it mountain hiking, indoor climbing, a guided tour of the cheese factory, the forest adventure centre, skating at the ice rink, canoeing, a cycling tour in the foothills of the Alps or swimming in one of the nine nearby lakes and water parks - your days will fly by, and you will certainly not suffer from boredom. Every year, 1.2 million guests from all over the world come to Hohenschwangau to marvel at King Ludwig's fairytale castle. Hear about his dreams in a guided tour. Standing on Marienbrücke bridge, you will understand why travellers from all over the globe come here to see the castle.
