Allgäu / Bavarian Swabia as a source of energy
The Allgäu/Bavarian Swabia region is noted first and foremost for its unspoilt and unique natural scenery: from fascinating moorland and sweeping fields of flax to clear mountain lakes and the native herbs of the Allgäu Alps.
Experience the unique diversity of this countryside on high Alpine walks with wonderful views above the clouds or on more leisurely tours such as the historic Shepherd’s Trail in Nördlinger Ries. Alternatively, get on your bicycle and pedal along the Danube cycle route through the Swabian Danube Valley, lined with ancient woodland, to Neu-Ulm and Donauwörth. In winter, the snow-covered mountains are perfect for skiing, snowboarding or tobogganing.
Those looking for a more relaxing time can also find plenty of interest in the Allgäu. From herb trails and Kneipp treatments to wellness applications with hay or mud: the rich and healing treasures of nature help people in search of healthy relaxation to switch off from everyday life and recharge their batteries.
The beauty of the region did not go unnoticed by the nobility either. Fairy Tale King Ludwig II built his legendary Neuschwanstein Castle on the rocks near Füssen – now one of the most famous sights in the world.
