Nevertheless the region doesn't lack cultural and indoor activities either.

In the following just a short, non-exhaustive overview of the before mentioned posible activities.

You can use it as a starting point for a competitive racing bike tour, to ascend steep mountain-bike tracks or just a relaxed and easy family tour!

Hiking & Climbing


The "Allgäuer" and "Ammergauer" Alps start only a few kilometers away and some smaller hills and several lakes (Alpsee, Schwansee, Alatsee, Faulensee, Schmuttersee, Bannwaldsee, Hopfensee, Weißensee,...) are in short distance from our house. Therefore you have perfect preconditions for all kinds of hikes (with stops at mountain cabins with delicous local food) and mountain activities like climbing, ropes course or canyoning. And if the weather isn't good enough there's a climbing hall only 2 km away. For those of you that don't like hiking but want to get some mountain experience: there are several cable railways not far away.

Air Sports


In our close vicinity you can find several famous paragliding spots like Tegelberg or Buchenberg and even paragliding schools (in Rieden). Further more there's a glider airfield and companies offering balloon rides.



As mentioned before, the Allgäu region is not only interesting in summer but also in winter. In the months of December, January, February and March the landscape is usually covered by snow and ice so that you get to enjoy a lot of winter activities: skiing, snowboarding, cross country skiing, ski-tours, tobogganing, ice skateing or showshoeing just to name a few.

Other Activities


There are several other fun activities offered in our region, from summer toboggan runs, flying fox or rafting to amusement parks, horse riding and thermal bathes. If you're a football fan visit a match of famous FC Bayern München. It's only a 1.5 hour drive away. We are sure you'll find the right thing for you and your family.
