  • The Grand Tour is an attraction for locals and tourists alike. There are so many unique perspectives on the Ammergau, Allgäu and Tannheim mountains and because the ship is the best place. This includes a cool wheat beer and a snack, and the day is done.

  • It’s a quite picturesque lake taken into account it’s proximity to famous castle. There are a lot of walking and cycle path around it. Not sure if other activities are available like kayaking etc.  more »
