  • Here you can quickly boot with the cable railway, there is also a super nice (and exhausting) walking tour, with which one can bridge the 1,000 m difference in height in about 3 to 4 hours. Even in winter, because needed snowshoes because the route is often iced and pretty steep. The views of Castle Neuschwannstein is but an unforgettable experience.

  • Fabulous! Take the lift up and climb down! Worth the time and effort to get to the top! Have a beer in the café at the top! Great views! 
  • With the mountain railway on the Tegelberg mountain, wonderful view, very nice location, mountain panorama is awesome and the views over the Valley with the beautiful Grand Lakes. Worth a trip!
