Hiking pleasures and fun celebrations

The summer months are the time for celebrations of all kinds in the towns along the Romantic Road. A journey along the Romantic Road is particularly interesting and relaxing thanks to the interplay of wonderful natural experiences and the joy of celebrating historic city festivals. Whether day trips or longer vacation trips - the variety of offers in the 29 towns along the 460-kilometer route are incomparable and offer a wide range of choices for both nature lovers and those looking for festival events. Here are some interesting examples:

Hiking around Fussen

If you are looking for a very special nature experience, a visit to Füssen at the southern end of the Romantic Road is a must. "Hiking is the king's delight" is the motto for everyone who would like to explore nature, architecture and hospitality on foot. Not only the two world-famous castles Hohenschwangau and Neuschwanstein connect the Wittelsbach family with Füssen and its surroundings. At the age of 24, the king laid the foundation stone for Neuschwanstein in 1869 - a sight that became known far beyond the country's borders. Even today, the fairytale castle is the destination of many holidaymakers from all over the world. www.fuessen.de


The Tegelberg was also a popular royal hiking destination. The royal family left buildings there such as the Tegelberghaus and the Berggasthaus Bleckenau, which originally served as hunting lodges for Ludwig's father Maximilian II. The Marienbrücke, which Maximilian had built for his wife Marie as an engagement present, offers an impressive view of Neuschwanstein. All of these places of remembrance of the Wittelsbach family pass through hikers on the 17-kilometre-long Tegelberg circuit.

Landsberger Wiesn folk festival

"O'zapft is!" is the motto again this year from June 16th to 18th and from June 22nd to 25th. On these two weekends, the people of Landsberg celebrate their popular folk festival, the "Landsberger Wiesn". Visitors can look forward to a varied festival program, entertaining rides and cozy hours in the marquee. From the Oktoberfest hype with popular rides, from bumper cars to chain carousels, with typical folk festival delicacies such as bratwurst and cotton candy and the traditional parade, the Landsberger Wiesn offers a variety of opportunities for all ages to celebrate together. A special highlight is the Ferris wheel. The musical offer in the marquee impresses with its wide program, from brass band music to hits and party sounds. On Sunday, June 25th, the big club parade will take place again.

    Echt coole Ideen! Mich würde ja der Weitwanderweg echt reizen, aber 500 km sind schon ein Wort…Aber vielleicht in Etappen und Stückchenweise, auch eine Idee. Danke für den Denkanstoß!
