Untouched nature and lively little towns: experience the impressive contrasts of Bavaria up close. The Allgäu/Bavarian-Swabia Tourist Board unites south-western Bavaria under one umbrella association. On its two websites www.bayerisch-schwaben.de and www.allgaeu.de, it presents the warmth, sense of regional identity, joie de vivre and idyllic scenery of the region.
Bavarian-Swabia: meteorite crater, Harburg and the Romantic RoadThe name Bavarian-Swabia reveals the linguistic and cultural diversity of the region. “Where Bavaria talks Swabian”, the Swabian down-to-earth attitude meets Bavarian cosiness.
The tourist board has all kinds of tips for your family holiday ready on the website for Bavarian-Swabia. Your children can experience a holiday adventure in LEGOLAND Germany and get to know the famous puppets of the Augsburger Puppenkiste.
And the name also says it all with the “Romantic Road”: Germany's most popular holiday route takes you across Bavarian-Swabia – through the Ries meteorite crater, past the famous Harburg castle complex and via the Fugger town of Augsburg on to Friedberg with the Wittelsbach Palace.
Allgäu: walking, winter sports and wellnessHiking is part of the Allgäu like Kässpatzen are part of a cabin retreat weekend. Become a high-flyer, water strider or meadow walker in the Allgäu hiking trilogy and enjoy the feeling high above the clouds. On the interactive map, you will find 53 stages which will take you across lush meadows, to rushing waterfalls and to the highest peaks. Or cycle on the “Allgäu Circular Cycle Route” (Allgäu Radrunde); the 450 km cycle route is also described in stages and the baggage transfer ensures an unencumbered holiday feeling.
Where there are mountains, there is also snow in the winter. This means: fun for the whole family with skiing, snowboarding and tobogganing – in clear skiing regions where snow is guaranteed.
Now as ever, the Allgäu is a paradise for people seeking relaxation and health-conscious people. Under the slogan “Allgäu Alpine wellness”, the idyllic region presents its best offers to you. The Allgäu provides a number of options for an eventful and lasting holiday.
