The Allgäu is one of the loveliest regions in the classic holiday destination Bavaria and it is an excellent all-year-round holiday location.
The variety of landscape, ranging from high mountains and the foothills of the Alps to the banks of Lake Constance, is a factor that enables every visitor to decide just what kind of holiday he wants.
Füssen – one of the spa and holiday towns with the longest traditions in the Allgäu – offers wide-ranging cultural activities and a programme for guests including the well known Concerts in the Prince’s Hall (Fürstensaalkonzerte), open air theatre and open air concerts. If you are out and about in the busy old part of town, don’t forget it is not far to Lake Schwansee, where you can experience total tranquillity.
The Allgäu attracts its holiday-makers with idyllic cycle tracks and paths, mountain tracks and cosy mountain huts, large and small lakes where they can swim, fish or just walk round. And dream.
In the Allgäu, important and less important rulers have left fortified or sumptuous evidence of their time in power. Castles, little dreamy country retreats and castles on a grand scale transport visitors back to the lifestyle of the nobility and princely splendour that we like to relive in our dreams. For example, we think of Ludwig 11, who created the fairytale castle Neuschwanstein.
In the Allgäu Alps, winter creates sites for skiing, snow boarding or cross-country skiing. After the pleasures of the piste, visitors will find the hosts in the mountain huts of the Allgäu ready to provide food and drink in a cosy atmosphere.more about this holiday destination
