Nature at its best
Throughout the year, this holiday destination in the Allgäu is as varied as the landscape that surrounds it. The 13 villages that make up this municipality line the wide valley where the charming foothills of the Alps meet the peaks of the Allgäu and Tyrol mountains. Just 15 kilometres away are the famous Hohenschwangau and Neuschwanstein castles.
The landscape with its lakes, rivers, meadows, forests, castles and palaces is known as Schlosspark. On Mount Falkenstein, the viewing tower in Germany’s highest castle ruins offers fantastic panoramic views. It comes as no surprise that Ludwig II of Bavaria, the fairytale king, wanted to build what would be his final and most magnificent castle here. There’s an extensive network of award-winning walking trails, with more than a dozen mountain restaurants between the valleys and the peaks, and excellent cycling routes that take recreational cyclists and mountain bikers to the prettiest spots.
Families will enjoy the twelve themed playgrounds, the high-ropes course and the child-friendly activities led by the mountain guides. The amazing views from Mount Breitenberg can be reached via cable car or chairlift. And more than 250 local holiday amenities and activities can be enjoyed for free with the KönigsCard, which is available from selected accommodation providers.
Traditional inns serving authentic Allgäu cuisine and a picturesque church with a magnificent mountain backdrop make a break here well worth your while.
And to top it all off, Pfronten is also a climatic health resort renowned for its excellent air quality.
