Feel the winter, the Buchenbergalm, Drehhütte, or Bleckenauhütte are the perfect starting points to slide down into the valley where you have parked your car after a deftig lunch. Bavarian cuisine has plenty of comfort food that will warm you from the inside in wintry conditions. On the other hand you can make it a little more romantic by going on a horse and sleigh ride, wrapped in fur and blankets to see more or less 150 deer gather in the forest. You are on holiday, its time to relax, enjoy the fairy tale landscape with family and friends.

Take the cable car up to the Tegelberghaus and enjoy the best „Kaiserscharrn“ (caramelised pancake with raisins), Sissi already enjoyed it! Or hike up to the „ Bleckenau“ hunting lodge of the queen mother of Ludwig and enjoy a Gulasch, Rösti and other specialities.

Pure relaxation sets in at the thermal baths of the Kristall Therme, hot springs feed into whirlpools of salty bliss. Enjoy the castle view in the open air hot pools. If you are lucky our lakes are frozen for ice skating and ice sailing, if not go and watch an ice hockey gane at the ice rink in Füssen or try skating yourself when it opens its door daily to the public, the brewery in Schwangau also has a small ice rink with rental gear and activities in the afternoons.

Cross country ski here in Schwangau, take to the local slopes (illuminated in the evening from 6-9pm) or drive to several ski arenas within 15 to 25 minutes to get a variety of challenges and to explore the area. Some of the names are, Hahnenkamm and Tannheimer Tal.
