Great Winter Sport & Xmas markets in Dec: Not only will you find beautiful skiing slopes all around (4 ski areas with plenty of slopes), there are also short as well as up to 5 kilometres long toboggan runs. You can rent a toboggan at the mountain hut/station.
Another popular winter activity is snow shoe hiking and ice-skating, ice hockey playing or simply walking on ice on one of the 6 lakes around us.
The Christmas market in the historic market town of Fuessen (lovely 20 min walk from Birkeneck along the river Lech) is taking place on the first and third weekend of December. The smaller culinary Christmas market of Schwangau village will take place on the first Sunday in December with many more musical events throughout the season.
Two beautiful golf courses within a 20 minutes drive.
Fabulous skiing. There are ten skiing areas around us. The closest slopes are right in our village, only 5 minutes from the house: Tegelberg wintersport arena. You will find 4 lifts and even more slopes, some of which are flood lit for night skiing and articifically snowed upon to allow skiing even when mother nature doesn't provide the perfect conditions.
There are excellent nordic skiing trails including one 2km long flood lit trail right under castle Neuschwanstein.
The location and apartment were perfect. Everything was provided. Great wifi reception. Many thanks to Cornelia who was really friendly and informative regarding local amenities and places of interest to visit. Her recommendation to visit the Hotel Steiger restaurant was great. The food there was very good. The weather was perfect which made the holiday complete. We even enjoyed the evening where we had a six hour electric storm which lit up the sky and mountains - very dramatic. We would definitely recommend it to others.
Thank you, Cornelia, for a most wonderful week at the apartment in Schwangau. Everything about the accommodation was perfect. The location is wonderful, with a view out the window of Neuschvansten Castle and one night, the sunset turned the mountain side red - it was a marvelous sight that lasted only a little while. (Is there a special name for that amazing occurrence?) Bicycling right from the front door was great - we cycled around Forgensee lake, a distance of about 30 miles (we might have missed a turn here and there). The kitchen was beautifully equipped and we ate all our breakfasts there. Thank you for the recommendations of restaurants and sights to see. We enjoyed our stay. You made everything very comfortable. We would definitely stay here again.

We had a great time here we stayed in the ground floor appartment which was spacious, modern, clean and well located. we would recommend if you are a large party hiring the upstairs appartment to as the main area in the ground floor is a really sociable space.
Loads to do in this area. If you go to the castles go early as the time slots are allocated to you and the queue can mean a fair wait (if nice weather ok) If you like walking there are loads of walks around.
The weather can change dramatically so be prepared with different clothing!
Local restaurants are good but even though they have card machines will only take cash (work that one out!)
We will be back.
From first to last, all contacts with the owner were quick, friendly and accurate. The property is exactly as described, and is a perfect base for either exploring the surrounding region or for sitting around relaxing. The local towns are very easy to access on foot or by car. The view to the castles and the mountains behind is just stunning.
Abbiamo soggiornato nell'appartamento stile mansarda ,molto ben curato e fornito di ogni confort. Lo stabile e' immerso nel verde a pochi passi dal lago e con una vista spettacolare sui castelli. La cittadina di Fussen e' a pochi passi come supermercati e ristoranti. Ideale per famiglie e amanti della tranquillita' .
We had an excellent time and the weather was wonderful, it is truely a wonderful part of the planet. From our arrival to our departure we enjoyed the excellent facilities. The accomodation was perfect and the view spectacular. My parents were amazed at the nature and beauty all around. We did the mountain, castle and spa as you suggested, we kept our clothes on for the first two!!
We have already passed your details to 2 friends and recommended them to visit. I'm sure we will make a return visit in the future.
We returned home fully refreshed and full of sunshine and great memories.
