Welcome to the Allgäu, an idyllic mountain region in the South West of Bavaria. Trips to the Allgäu provide everything you could hope for, when it comes to a truly Bavarian experience. Your activities will primarily involve activities in nature, ranging from sports to culture: Hiking, mountain biking or rock climbing are great summer activities, while in winter you can go skiing, tobogganing or ice skating.

Medieval castle ruins or fairy tale palaces, such as Neuschwanstein Castle for example, wait for you to be discovered, as are the larger towns of Kempten or Kaufbeuren. Furthermore, Munich or Lake Constance are not too far away, which make for perfect day trip destinations.
