The region of the Bavarian Alps & German castles

Land of the lakes, mountains and castles

Welcome to the land of the lakes, mountains and castles, the Allgaeu.

The Allgaeu is situated at the most southern side of the Germany boarder (to Austria) and at the same time the most south-western point of Bavaria.

Here is an excellent base for excursions to nearby Oberammergau (35 km), Garmisch-Partenkirchen (50 km), Munich (100 km), Lindau on lake Constance (110 km) and some Austrian cities like Innsbruck (100 km). The third castle of Ludwig II. called Linderhof castle is also very close to our hotel (50 km)

Our village Schwangau lies close to the southernmost point of Germany's famous Romantic Road and is considered by many as its highlight.

The beautiful Allgaeu coutryside runs from Bodensee (Lake Constance) to the Bavarian Alps!

The world-famous Neuschwanstein castle is located in the east of Allgaeu and is one of the most well-known sights of this region.

Visit us in Allgaeu and experience the beauty, the uniqueness of our countryside, and the naturalness of this region.

The Allgäu offers all of our guests many options to keep them busy throughout the day. From skiing, cross-country and snow hikes in the winter to different water- and sport activities, like hiking, biking, climbing, and Nordic walking in the summer.
