Enjoy the cheese specialties of our dairy farmers!

At the Bantschar with a small farmer's museum in the former stable building (Tiroler Straße 38, 87459 Pfronten) you get a great treat on Allgäu cheese specialties: everything regional and natural! The cattle feed comes from our pastures and mountain meadows, up to 1200 m altitude, with about 50 different species of grasses and alpine herbs. Mountain flowers, spicy mountain herbs, and lush grass give the milk and later the cheese an incomparable taste. In winter, the cows get to eat the sun-dried hay from these mountain meadows.

The paradise for cheese lovers: Hochalp cheese, Rossi, Heublumenkäs, Allgäu Emmentaler, wild garlic cream cheese, Senna cheese with fenugreek, goat Camembert and -Brie, White Goats cheese, Romadur, Pompadour, Mozzarella, Mountain cheese, Zicorino, Weißlacker ... Top advice and great selection!

The Allgäu cheese flavored with local herbs tastes really great. A few kinds of cheese are refined with Allgäuer mountain and meadow herbs.

And here is another tip for the cheese lovers:

Would you like to know how the Allgäu mountain cheese and other cheese specialties are produced in the traditional way? Learn all about the Allgäu Cheese Road from the Alps to Lake Constance! Stop by, make cheese in the cheese school yourself, taste it, ask questions, take a guided tour through the dairy - the alpine dairies of the Allgäu cheese route have something for every taste.

Explore the "Allgäu Cheese Road" by bike! The path is well signposted and the numerous alpine dairies and rustic Bavarian restaurants promise to strengthen you on the way.

The Forggensee near Füssen was dry for months. The fifth largest lake in the Allgäu, at the foot of the Neuschwanstein Castle, resembled a lunar landscape. Too bad for tourism in Bavaria, because without water no shipping, no canoe tours, the musical "The Swan Prince" falls out and and and. The good news: After the Forggensee-breaker has been extensively renovated, the partial impounding of the Forggensee has now begun - but initially only by 5 meters to 770 mNN.

Few places on Earth look more like storybook illustrations!  The Neuschwanstein Castle with its towers, turrets, frescoes, and throne hall looks like it was plucked straight from your favorite fairy tale. 

King Ludwig II of Bavaria commissioned the cliffside castle in 1868. King Ludwig II of Bavaria quickly retreated here into a private fantasy world,  where he could live out his dreams.

Ludwig II never saw the final Neuschwanstein. He died in 1886, and the final towers weren’t completed until 1892 .Within 2 weeks of his sudden and mysterious death, the magnificent castle was opened to the public, where it quickly became one of the region’s most visited attractions.

Today, more than 1.5 million visitors come to see Germany’s fairy tale castles, making it one of the most visited castles in the world.

The Eiskeller is a well-known gem in Pfronten and has often been the scene of smaller events. Now, the traditional building was breathed new life and turned into a true cultural stage. From 2018, events from the fields of theater, cabaret and music will take place here regularly.

The series of events will take place on Thursday, May 03, 2018 with the theater evening "Your Majesty Reads!" . The reading with Wolfgang Seidenberg from "The sovereign reader" accompanied by Mike Dahlmann at the bagpipe starts at 8 pm.

"The dogs were to blame. For some reason, they ran across the terrace, barking as if obsessed, hopped down the steps, and turned the corner of the house, where they could be heard barking slightly. It was the book library of the County Library of the City of Westminster. "In the novel "The Sovereign Reader" by British author Alan Bennett, the Majesty Queen Elizabeth II of England discovers the world of literature. She learns how one book leads to the next, how more and more doors open, and how the reading changes them. We not only meet with her the bizarre and eccentric people of her environment, but also poets and their works. "Bennett shows us how clever and charming what literature can do with one." (NZZ)

Actor Wolfgang Seidenberg (Marienhof, Salzburg Festival, Dahoam is Dahoam u.v.a.) brings all the funny and bizarre nuances masterfully and makes for a wonderfully cheerful evening with entertaining literature, musically accompanied by Mike Dahlmanns and the sounds of his Scottish bagpipe.
