The Lake Hopfensee
The Lake Hopfensee
21.10.2019

The circular hike "Hopfen am See - Hopfensee, Faulensee and the ruin Hopfen" shows you the foothills of the Alps with two beautiful bathing lakes.

The Hopfensee lies between Pfronten and Füssen. The lake is about 20 minutes’ drive from the Hotel Bergpanorama. Hopfensee is referred to as the Swabian Riviera or the Allgäu Riviera. The view of Neuschwanstein Castle is one of the highlights on the Hopfensee. Stroll along the waterfront with its 180 ° panoramic view of Neuschwanstein and the peaks of the Ammergauer, Lechtaler, Tannheimer and the Allgäu Alps. Along the waterfront in Hopfen am See there are many opportunities to eat a regional snack.

Leisure activities on the lake include rowing and pedal boats, sailing, windsurfing, and kitesurfing. The approximately 2 km long lake is a popular place for mountain bikers and cyclists. A 7 km long circular walk (about 2 hours) around the Hopfensee is very popular with tourists. The way is very well developed, also for prams. It has a beautiful view of the Alps; The water is so smooth that the mountains, the sun or the sunset are reflected very nicely in it.

For families with children, a visit to the mini-golf course is recommended.

From the shores of the Hopfensee, there is another lake in the foothills of the Alps. The Terrainkurweg leads from Hopfensee over the Dotzenwangweg to Faulensee. Far away from the hustle and bustle, idyllically situated between Forggensee and Hopfensee, avoiding green spruce forests, the Faulensee offers a very special atmosphere. There is an adventure playground waiting for the little ones.

Back to the waterfront, it goes over the castle ruins Hopfen, with a magnificent view over the Hopfensee. The castle ruins are mainly visited because of the views of the Ammergau Alps and the Tannheimer mountains. The view extends all the way to Neuschwanstein Castle.

From the trail parking lot at Hopfensee you can then walk across meadows and farms to the castle ruins Eisenberg and Hohenfreyberg and back. From the viewing platform of the ruin Eisenberg you have a beautiful panoramic view of the Säuling, Aggenstein, Breitenberg and into the Lower Allgäu.

Hiking Trip Pfronten - Kappeler Alp
Hiking Trip Pfronten - Kappeler Alp
Hiking Trip Pfronten - Kappeler Alp
08.10.2019

A beautiful hike to the Kappeler Alp at 1340 m altitude starts from the trail parking lot in Pfronten-Kappel (860 m). A serpentine trail with a gentle forest floor leads through the climbing forest Höllschlucht and on through the 3D archery grounds.

TIP for a hike with children: Directly at the entrance of the gorge Höllschlucht, at the foot of the Edelsberg, is the playground "Räubernest".

Then begins the wild and romantic Höllschlucht (also called Devil's Gorge). On the way through the gorge, you will be accompanied by the sound of the torrent and the waterfalls all the time.

Continuing past the large waterfall, the very shady alpine path climbs steeply over rock steps and natural stairs. After about 400 meters of altitude, you leave the Devil's Gorge behind and reach sunny alpine meadows with the first magnificent view of the Füssener valley.

After about 2.5 hours on flower-rich alpine meadows, steep cow pastures and narrow forest paths you reach the summit of the Kappeler Alp at 1340 m altitude. From here you have a fantastic view of the valley with Hopfensee, Weissensee, Forggensee, Tegelberg, Säuling and in the distance you can see the Zugspitze and right the Breitenberg.

And there it is (!) - the Kappeler Alp, a mountain hut managed all year round with its beautiful sun terrace and an excellent kitchen.

If you want, you can continue the hike from the Kappeler Alp. There are many possibilities for further tours to other huts and mountains as well as several ways down to the valley. You can hike back to Pfronten-Kappel on the same path, walk down the alpine path to the Steinbach and back to Pfronten-Kappel via the pilgrimage church Maria Trost to Nesselwang or ascend to the managed sport hut Böck (duration approx. 20 minutes) and from there on foot or with the cable railway Alpspitzbahn down to Nesselwang descend. From the mountain station of the Alpspitzbahn, it is about 40 minutes to the Edelsberg (1,630m). From the Edelsberg you can see in good weather on the Königswinkel with Neuschwanstein Castle and over to the Zugspitze.

TIP: Since the path through the Höllschlucht gorge to the largest valley goes over thousands of slippery roots and stones, it is recommended as a climb and the meadow path again as a descent.

Oberallgäu

The winding path through the Oberallgäu leads over Oberstaufen past the lake Großer Alpsee to Immenstadt, Sonthofen, Bad Hindelang and the Oberjoch in the direction of Wertach.

Breitenberg near Pfronten in the Mountains of the Tannheim

The Breitenberg belongs to the Bavarian side of the Tannheimer mountains. On the Breitenberg lead various hiking trails. Breitenberg near Pfronten is relatively easy to climb. The most commonly used hiking route begins in Achtal at the Fallmühle. A footpath leads through the Hochwald, on Brenteneck through forest clearings and then along the long Westgrats on a small trail to the summit (Ostler hut). Duration: around 2.5 hours. Very nice is the trail over the wild and romantic Reichenbach gorge.

It leads a 4-person gondola and then a chairlift from Pfronten-Steinach up to the summit. From the end station of the gondola you need an hour, and from the chairlift half an hour to the summit.

The Ostler hut (1.838m) invites you to stop. From here you have a magnificent panoramic view of the Pfronten Valley, the Allgäu, Tyrolean and Swiss mountains. A few meters above the mountain station is the Hochalp hut (1,510m) and the mountain house Allgäu (1,500).

A nice experience on the Breitenberg is watching the paragliders at the start.

Paragliders on the Breitenberg

The Breitenberg has three starting places, and it is really not very easy to fly on the Breitenberg. The best time to fly in the Tannheimer mountains and in the Lech valley is in May when there is a light to strong east-northeast wind. Highly recommended is the panoramic flight over the Pfrontener valley.

In winter, the rows of rocks around the Falkenstein provide slight thermals. Quiet and gentle, you fly from the Pfrontener valley to the landing field. In the east, the Neuschwanstein castle is good to see.

Mountain Biking on the Breitenberg

Mountain bikers can drive from the valley station of the Breitenberg cable car station on the challenging Hochalp forest trail or from the Enge on the Ostler forest road up to the mountain. You can also have your mountain bike brought up from the Breitenberg gondola lift. From the mountain station, it goes down at a rapid descent into the valley to Pfronten.

Breitenberg in Winter

In the ski resort Breitenberg-Hochalpe in the Ostallgäu you will find between 1,200 and 1,600 meters of altitude well-groomed slopes of all levels. The snowiest month is February with an average snow depth of 50 cm at summit elevation and 16 cm at valley level. The Breitenberg cable car takes you directly from the valley to the ski area.

A special highlight on the Breitenberg is the natural toboggan run, which with its six kilometers is the longest in the Allgäu. A bus brings the tobogganers back to the bottom station of the Breitenberg cable car station for free 7 times a day.

Snowboarders can enjoy themselves in a great fun park with many attractions and music.

Or how about an Eskimo weekend on the Breitenberg? Would you like to build your own igloo and overnight in it? HERE to find out more about it.

The station Pfronten-Steinbach is located near the valley station. Sufficient parking spaces are available at the valley station.

From the Breitenberg (1838 m) to the Aggenstein (1986 m)

At the end of the chairlift on the Breitenberg, the more demanding route to the Aggenstein begins on the north side.

The tour takes in some steep and rocky passages, so it is not suitable for inexperienced hikers.

If you take a tour on the Aggenstein, you can stop in the Bad Kissinger hut.

The Tegelberg Cable Car

If you want to high on the Tegelberg near Schwangau, you can either walk on marked trails or overcome 1000 meters with the Tegelberg cable car. The ride with the Tegelberg gondola to the summit (1,720 m) takes about 10 minutes and offers a royal view of the two castles Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau and Ammergau Alps.

Possible trails for those who want to hike the mountain are from the south over the Ahornreitweg, over the Pöllat gorge and Mary's bridge or from the Rohrkopf hut along the main exit to the Tegelberghaus. The Tegelberg house was built as a royal hunting lodge and has been a favourite place of Ludwig II.

Once at the top, you can watch kite and paragliders fly ashore at the Tegelberg mountain station, feast on Allgäu delicacies in the panorama restaurant next to the mountain station, enjoy fantastic views of the Allgäu Königswinkel with the lakes Bannwaldsee, Forggensee, Alpsee and Hopfensee and, of course, hike.

A flight school offers the opportunity to explore the Allgäu in tandem with an experienced flight instructor.

From the mountain station of the Tegelberg, the Ostallgäuer Höhenweg and the Kulturpfad Schutzengel lead deep into the Ammergebirge nature reserve. The romantic, promising hairpin turn leads in the direction of Branderfleck. Sporty, giddiness-free hikers can make a short detour to the Branderschrofen. The 1881-meter-high Branderschrofen is the highest point of the Tegelberg.

Always following the signposts "Jägerhütte", it is not too strenuous to the Ahornsattel (1750 m) and then down to Niederstraußberg. After a slight ascent to the Niederstraußbergsattel, continue the Köllebach and the Ochsenängler to the Jägerhütte (“Hunters Hut”).

The managed hut is located at 1,422 meters in the middle of the Ammergebirge nature reserve. From there, you can reach the farmed Bleckenau, which was built by Maximilian II as a "Swiss House" for his wife Mary. From Bleckenau you can also take the minibus into the valley to Hohenschwangau. From here it is about 20 minutes’ walk to the Tegelberg parking lot.

Directly at the valley station, there is a 760-meter-long summer toboggan run, a scooter train, and a huge adventure playground. Summer toboggan run prices: adults pay € 4.50 per trip (6-seat ticket € 19.00), children € 3.00 (6-ticket € 13.50). It is also worthwhile to look at the remains of the Roman villa complex and the Roman bath.

The Via Ferrata on the Tegelberg

The via ferrata Gelb-Wand-Steig, Tegelbergsteig or Fingersteig lead to the Tegelberg.

The Fingersteig (about 1.5 hours, 685 HM) is a nice, albeit short via ferrata and is the ideal complement to the Tegelbergsteig. You can first climb the Tegelbergsteig and then the Fingersteig. From the exit of the Tegelbergsteig it is about 30 minutes descent from Tegelberg to the entrance of the Fingersteig.

You can take the cable car up and then descend via the ski slope. The difficulty is at the beginning is C. Then it goes right around the so-called "finger" around. You come to a small “Snack” bench, which also serves as an emergency exit. Then follows a demanding walking area to the key point, a small overhang (D), further vertically upwards (B / C), then very steep with a slight overhang (D). Here is the 2nd emergency exit. After an abandoned cross passage (B / C) comes a platy crossing (C). From the exit, one reaches then fast the saddle, where also the Tegelbergsteig and the yellow wall climb end, and the mountain station of the Tegelberg and the Tegelberg house. From here you can also climb the summit of Branderschrofen (1879 m) in about 0.5 hours.

 Descend either via the via ferrata Gelbwand in about 2 hours back to the valley station, with the Tegelberg train or over the Rohrkopfhütte (about 1.5 hours) - from here a beautiful view of the castle Neuschwanstein.

Ski Holidays Tegelberg Schwangau

Just 30 minutes by car from the Hotel Bergpanorama Pfronten lies the Tegelberg (1,881 m) and the Tegelberg winter sports arena with around 8 km of slopes.

Whether alpine skiing, cross-country skiing, ski touring or snowboarding - on Tegelberg every winter sportsman can pursue his hobby.

The floodlights in the winter sports arena on Tegelberg allow night skiing in the evenings. There is floodlit skiing on Wednesdays and Saturdays at the Adlerlift and at the Reithlift.

The absolute highlight on the Tegelberg is the 2 km long, snow-covered Neuschwanstein cross-country ski track, which runs between 6 pm and 9 pm, and runs directly below the world-famous fairy-tale castle of King Ludwig II.

The snowboarders and freestylers will find in the winter sports arena on the Tegelberg, directly at the Adlerlift, the Tegelberger Snowboard park with several elements in different levels of difficulty (wave track, small rails, tables, boxes, rainbow jibs and kickers).

With a sea-level between 830 m and 1,730 m, the ski resort on the Tegelberg is one of the 10 highest in Germany. The slopes are above average. The snowiest month on the Tegelberg Schwangau is January. Modern snow-making systems guarantee winter sports pleasure even on snow-free days.

The Tegelberg cable car takes you directly to the summit of the Tegelberg at 1,720 meters. Here begins a challenging ski slope with over 900 meters altitude difference. This red, 4.2 km long ski route leads directly into the valley and to the smaller lifts and slopes.

In Kinderland with a conveyor belt and two platter lifts, the smallest skiers are in good hands.

In the neighbouring ski resort Buchenberg there is the possibility to go snowshoeing or tobogganing. The 2.5-kilometer-long toboggan run invites you to a speedy descent and becomes a very special experience during the holidays in the evening as it is illuminated until 10 pm - even until 11 pm on the weekend.

The Dreh hut on the Tegelberg is a nice destination for a hut tour with tobogganing! Ascent to the hut from the Adlerhorst car park approx. 1.5 hours or from the Tegelberg valley station car park (reachable by bus). Sledges can be rented from Ski-Sport Luggi at the Tegelberg valley station.

It is best to park on the large parking lot at the trail. The car park access branches off already approx. 300 meters in front of the Tallifte on the Tegelberg cable car valley station to the left of the access road. At the south-eastern corner of this car park, the path to the parking Adlerhorst starts. From the parking Adlerhorst then please follow the forest road to the rotary hut. We recommend the parking in the parking lot near the Tegelbergbahn in winter, because with slippery or snowy, the direct access road from the B 17 to the parking Adlerhorst a slippery affair.

Note: The path over the Guardengel way and the Rohrkopf hut to the Dreh hut will not be cleared.

The Castle Hohenschwangau
The Castle Hohenschwangau
The Castle Hohenschwangau
22.07.2019

Anyone who hears the word "Allgäu", certainly also thinks of the two dream castles of the fairy tale king Ludwig II: the world-famous Castle Neuschwanstein and Castle Hohenschwangau. Both castles are located near the municipality of Schwangau and Füssen in the Allgäu, embedded in the picturesque panorama of the Allgäuer-, Lechtaler- and Bavarian Alps, in the so-called Königswinkel ("King's Corner").

It is only 16 kilometers from Pfronten to the castle, so you need only 25 minutes to reach the castle from the Hotel Bergpanorama by car. 

Those who spend their holidays in the Koenigswinkel should not only visit the world-famous Neuschwanstein Castle but also pay a visit to Hohenschwangau Castle, one of the most famous and beautiful sights in the Allgäu region. The Hohenschwangau Castle stands on a long ridge between the Alpsee and the Schwansee, 1000 m west of Neuschwanstein Castle.

Many tourists find the castle Hohenschwangau even prettier, more authentic and worth seeing than Neuschwanstein. Without a guide, you can look at the courtyard and the garden with the fountain. It is not as crowded as Neuschwanstein, Hohenschwangau offers a fantastic view of Füssen and the lake Forggensee, as well as Neuschwanstein Castle, the Alp lake (Alpsee) and the Swan lake (Schwansee) on the other side.

In 1832, the father of Ludwig II, Crown Prince Maximilian of Bavaria and later King Max II., bought the ruins of the ruined castle Schwanstein and let the medieval castle (first documented as "Castrum Swangowe" in the 12th century) from 1832 - 1836 reconstruct according to the original plans in neo-Gothic style to the Hohenschwangau Castle and expand generously. Until the 16th century, it was owned by the Knights of Schwangau and changed hands several times in the following period.

The Bavarian royal family used it as a summer palace and hunting lodge. King Ludwig II not only spent his youth here, but this castle also served him as a summer residence until his death in 1886. During a guided tour through the castle is shown a lot and you learn a lot about the family of King Ludwig II. Who wants to experience more about the Bavarian royal family and their castles, should stop by the Museum of the Bavarian Kings on the shores of the Alp lake.

The interior of the 19th century is preserved to this day and the many rooms in their original condition give one the feeling of being in the Middle Ages. Each room of the royal apartments is decorated with murals depicting numerous Germanic legends and historically significant moments from German history. In the Berchta Room, which served as a writing room for Queen Marie, there are pictures of the birth of Charlemagne.

The most noteworthy room is the large ballroom on the King Floor, also known as the Knights' Hall or the Heroes Hall, which stretches across the entire width of the castle. It is lavishly equipped and served for festivities and receptions.

Very original is the Oriental Room, which used the mother of King Ludwig II as a bedroom. Maximilian II designed and decorated this room in oriental style in memory of his journey through Turkey and Greece. In the Hohenstaufen Room, which served as a dressing room for King Maximilian II and later King Ludwig II, is the piano on which the famous composer Richard Wagner played during his stays in Hohenschwangau. In the Tasso Room, the bedroom of Ludwig II, you can admire the illuminated starry sky, which is integrated into the ceiling. Ludwig II changed nothing else in Hohenschwangau, only in his own bedroom he had built a group of rocks, over which a waterfall poured, as well as an apparatus for creating an artificial rainbow and a night sky with moon and stars, illuminated by a mirror system from the upper floor. Unfortunately, after his death in 1886, Queen Marie restored the original condition of the room. She died three years later in 1889 at the Hohenschwangau Castle.

From 1923 until today the castle belongs to the Wittelsbacher Ausgleichsfonds and is used as a museum. However, it is occasionally available to members of the Wittelsbach family for stays or celebrations.

To see the Hohenschwangau Castle from the inside is only possible as part of a guided tour. The tour takes about 30 minutes. Castle tours take place daily between 10:00 am - 4:00 pm (winter opening time) and 9:00 am - 5:00 pm (summer opening time). The Hohenschwangau Castle is closed on 24th December and 1st January.

You cannot park directly near the Burg Hohenschwangau. You can walk from the ticket center to the castle in about 30-40 minutes (about 1.5 km with a considerable slope). Park your car in the car park P4 in Hohenschwangau. From here you go uphill to the castle in 20 minutes.

TIP: Book a viewing appointment at least two days in advance. This saves hours of waiting. Since the tours through the castle run at periodic intervals, the tickets are time-bound. A visit to the castle garden, which surrounds the castle to the south and west, is suitable for the waiting time.

Another point of interest close to the Castle Hohenschwangau is the Pöllat Gorge.

The Poellat Gorge (ger. Pöllatschlucht) on the eastern edge of the nature reserve of the Ammergau Mountains was closed for five years and now it is finally opened again!

Nearly everyone knows Neuschwanstein Castle. Below the Neuschwanstein Castle lies the Pöllat Gorge. If you are near the castle, you should cross this wonderful gorge! The hike through the Pöllat Gorge is one of several paths to the Neuschwanstein Castle (45 minutes’ walk through the gorge until you are at the top). From the castle parking lot and the Tegelberg Cable Car (German: Tegelbergbahn) it takes about 20 to 30 minutes there. The upper entrance is in the immediate vicinity of Neuschwanstein Castle and can be reached by bus or by horse-drawn carriage.

The gorge can be crossed on iron bridges and well-developed paths, partly with stone steps, and therefore also suitable for families with children. However, the track is not suitable for pushchairs. There you can expect a spectacular piece of nature, the remains of the gypsum mill, smaller and larger waterfalls, of course, the 30-meter high Pöllat waterfall, huge rock towers, nicely formed plunge pools ... In the wild mountain stream Pöllat there are gravel banks on which you can splash around with children.

At the end of the path, you also experience the famous Mary’s bridge from a completely different perspective. The path leads over metal walkways and a path up to the castle and the bridge, which leads over to the Tegelberg. And again, from Mary’s bridge, which spans high above the deeply cut, one has a beautiful view over the gorge.

The Poellat Gorge (Pöllatschlucht) can be reached by car in about 25 minutes from the Hotel Bergpanorama Pfronten.

Neuschwanstein Castle
Neuschwanstein Castle
Neuschwanstein Castle
08.07.2019

The Castle Neuschwanstein on a rock in Hohenschwangau near Füssen is Germany's most famous castle, which is visited by 1.5 million tourists every year. You just must see it! The fairy-tale castle is located near the Austrian border in Bavarian Allgäu. Neuschwanstein Castle - against the background of the Tegelberg - borders directly with the nature reserve Ammergebirge (Ammergauer Alps).

It is only 16 kilometers from Pfronten to the castle, so you need only 25 minutes to reach the castle from the Hotel Bergpanorama by car. From the car park and ticket center you must walk for about half an hour on the 1.5 km long, relatively steep path to the castle or drive for € 6 by horse-drawn carriage. The buses leave from the valley station (Am Alpseeparkplatz P4) to Mary’s Bridge. A beautiful hiking trail over the Geoge Pöllat leads directly to the castle gates.

Ludwig II (King of Bavaria 1864-1886) never wanted to make the castle accessible to the public; it was to serve as a retreat for the shy King. The abandoned ruins of the two fortresses Vorder- and Hinterhohenschwangau on the imposing ridge called "Youth" were dismantled and a medieval Hohenschwangau Castle (the name "Neuschwanstein" was created only after the death of the king) was built. The foundation stone for the new castle was laid on September 5, 1869. The castle was supposed to have over 200 different interiors, and only about 15 rooms were completed. King Ludwig II used the money from his private fortune for his construction projects. After a certain period, the king's private funds were no longer enough; he had to borrow new loans on an ongoing basis. Ludwig II lived only 172 days in the unfinished castle, then he was bankrupt. Since 1885 foreign banks threatened seizure. Ludwig II was declared "disturbed", incapacitated, arrested and interned in the Castle Berg. One day later, he died together with his psychiatrist under unexplained circumstances in the Lake Starnberg. Just six weeks after the king's death, the castle was opened to visitors. The current owner of the castle is the Free State of Bavaria.

The imposing North Tower is with its 65 meters the tallest building in the castle. A very special room is a small grotto, a colorfully lit stalactite cave, which is connected by a glass sliding door with the conservatory. The largest rooms of the castle are the magnificent Byzantine Throne Room and the Singer's Hall. The Throne Room is a dome-shaped building, which is modeled after the famous mosque Hagia Sophia. On the walls are Jesus, Mary, and John, six canonized kings, twelve disciples and apostles of Jesus. The Singer’s Hall (27 x 10 meters!) hosts castle concerts every year in September. Tickets can be ordered by e-mail: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or by phone: 08362 - 81 98 31.

The castle was meant to translate the operas of Ludwig’s favorite composer Richard Wagner into architecture. The story goes that King Ludwig II dedicated the castle to the composer with whom he was a close friend. The rooms in the castle were decorated with Ludwig’s favourite themes as the legend of the Holy Grail and works of Richard Wagner and Wolfram von Eschenbach. The singer's dispute, which is thematized in Wagner's opera "Tannhäuser", is depicted on the murals of the Singer's Hall.

The leitmotiv of the equipment of the Castle Neuschwanstein is the swan. The swan was the heraldic animal of the Counts of Schwangau, Ludwig' successor. The swan is a special “soul animal”, the Christian symbol of light, purity, and perfection.

The large glass panes of the conservatory open a fantastic view of the foothills of the Alps. Above the balcony of the Throne room, you can see the lake Alpsee, on the right - the smaller lake Schwansee and in the middle - the Hohenschwangau castle, where Ludwig II spent most of his childhood. Directly on the lake Schwansee is the Schwansee park, which is the starting point for many hikes.

Behind the castle is the Mary’s Bridge (Marienbrücke), named after the Prussian Queen Marie of Prussia, the wife of the father of Ludwig II. The bridge rises 90 meters above the Pöllat gorge and is therefore also called Pöllat Bridge. From  Mary’s Bridge, you can enjoy a wonderful view of the Fairytale Castle and directly below the bridge is the approximately 30 -meter-high Pöllat waterfall.

The tickets for the castle are only available on the day of your visit at Ticket-Center Hohenschwangau below the castle. You can reserve the tickets up to 2 days before your desired visit to the castle. 

It can happen, especially in the months of July to September, all available tickets for Neuschwanstein is already sold out at lunchtime. The tour through the Neuschwanstein Castle is only possible as part of a guided tour (duration approx. 35 minutes). Castle tours take place daily between 10:00 am - 4:00 pm (winter opening time) and 9:00 am - 6:00 pm (summer opening time).

The wild, romantic Starzlach gorge below the Grünten in Sonthofen is an impressive natural spectacle of the Alps. The natural creator of the gorge is the mountain brook Starzlach, which has created a narrow nummulitic limestone rocky gorge (Nummus = coin) on its way from over 1000 meters high. The Starzlach ("jumping over rocks Aach - torrent") rises between the Wertacher Hörnle and the Grünten and flows at Sonthofen in the Ostrach. In the gorge, its waterfalls from several waterfalls.

The village Pfronten lies at the foot of the Breitenberg mountain at an altitude of 853 m, nestled in a wide valley plain in the midst of the Allgäu high Alps. The state-approved climatic health resort Pfronten has favourable climatic conditions in all seasons and is an ideal holiday resort in all seasons.

The transition from the gentle foothills of the Alps to the rugged high mountains with wide valleys, clear rivers, and lakes, colourful meadows, and pastures dominate the landscape.

In Pfronten you can relax at the Vils and forget your everyday life. Take a beautiful, relaxed hike along the Vils (length 6.6 km), which takes you back to the starting point on a circular trail. The romantic forest route begins at the Indian playground in the Vilstal, behind the inn "Vilstalsäge". From there it goes in the direction of Scheidbach Alpe, and further in the direction of "Kalbelehof Alpe" - always beautiful along the Vils. Shortly before the Alpe you cross the bridge over the Vils and return to the starting point on a circuit.

The Kalbelehof Alpe (open from June to September) is a nice place to stop for refreshments along the way.

Castle Ruin Falkenstein - King Ludwigs Last Dream
06.03.2019

A nice hike from Pfronten to the castle ruin on the Falkenstein, where King Ludwig II wanted to build his next fairytale castle. You can see from the ruin far into Vilstal. The view from the craggy rock of the castle ruin on Voralpenseen, Ammergebirge with Säuling, over Pfronten with Tannheimer mountains is simply extraordinarily fascinating!

There are several routes on the Falkenstein: from Pfronten on the driveway or on the south side over the trail at the height of the Breitenberg-Bahn in Pfronten Steinach, von Roßmoss, and Meillingen.

The high medieval Falkenstein ruin is the highest castle in Germany. You can also drive up by car, but a hike is more beautiful. The ascent is moderately exhausting and well feasible with children. From the castle, you can see Zugspitze, the highest mountain in Germany, and the famous Neuschwanstein Castle. Highly recommended is the short trip to the beautiful Mariengrotte.

If you are in Pfronten, you should definitely visit this attraction!

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.

Your Majesty Reads!
19.04.2018

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.
