Lovely apartment in a beautiful area

5 of 5
We stayed in Birkeneck 2 for 10 days in August. It is a large apartment with plenty of room for 4 people. There's nice furniture and big comfy beds and everything is very clean. The view is amazing with the 2 castles and mountains in the distance. The apartment is in a quiet area, away from the busy tourist area around the castles. There are plenty of places to eat within walking distance. There are loads of things to see and do. We hired bikes and rode around the lake (bikes can be kept in the garage if you hire them for a few days), visited the castles, took the cable car to the top of Mount Tegelberg (amazing view from the top), rode the Tegelbergbahn toboggan run (great fun for us and the kids), visited Munich and Augsburg (approximately 2 hours by car) and visited Fussen and walked across the Austrian border. My only suggestion to the owner would be to supply 2 fans that could be used in the bedrooms at night. With 2 bedrooms and 1 fan it was hard to cool down. It gets very hot in the summer! Cornelia, who met us when we arrived, was very helpful and gave us some ideas of things to do and places to eat. She was also just a phone call away if we had any problems. We loved our time staying in Birkeneck 2. It is a lovely apartment in a wonderful place and we'll definitely be back.

Everybody in the family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Schwangau; it was a lovely, clean apartment and we found it an excellent base for all our trips out. The view from the balcony is fantastic!
