Are there any cultural highlights, museums?

"I'm very interested in the history and culture of Füssen. Are there any cultural highlights or museums in Füssen that you can recommend?" (posted 06/07/2014)

The following is an excerpt from Wikipeda.de "feet" Culture and sights feet located on the Swabian Spa Route. The Romantic Road also has its end point in feet. Museums [edit] State Gallery in the High Castle [edit] High Castle feet in the north wing of the late Gothic High Castle, the residence of the prince bishops of Augsburg, is a branch gallery of the Bavarian State Picture Collections. Here, late Gothic paintings and sculptures fit into the former residence rooms and provide an overview of the art at the time of turn of the 15th and 16th centuries in the Allgäu and Bavarian Swabia. Of particular interest is the so-called Knights' Hall with its coffered ceiling, with the reliefs of the Diocese of Saint Ulrich, Afra and Simpert and the Mother of God. Glass paintings of Hans Holbein the Elder and Hans Burgkmair the Elder leave the cultural flowering in Fussen at the time of Emperor Maximilian I. guess. Municipal Art Gallery [edit] Also in the north wing of the High castle is housed the Municipal Art Gallery. The main focus is the art of the 19th century dedicated to the Munich school of painting with paintings by Carl Spitzweg, Franz von Defregger and the late in Fussen artist Oskar Freiwirth-Lützow (1862-1925). The graphic work of Franz Graf von Pocci (1807-1876) from the Pocciana collection of family ownership is shown in temporary exhibitions. The artistic work of the Culture and Art Prize of the City ring feet Percy (1901-1994) and Gottfried Andreas Herrmann (1907-2002) can be seen here. Museum of Fuessen [edit] In the south wing of the former Benedictine monastery of St. Mang is the newly appointed, but was founded as early as 1913 Museum of Fuessen. The focus of the museum is the building itself, the importance of the monastery of St. Mang lies in its conception as a baroque work of art and at the same time in the extant remains of the medieval system. The baroque state rooms of the monastery are included in the museum tour. From the excavated medieval cloister leads to the Anna Chapel with the famous dance of death of Jakob Füssen Hiebeler from the year 1602. Spitalkirche The Holy Spirit in the city's history department will document the history of Füssen lute and violin making. In addition, Castle Falkenstein, the planning of the Bavarian King Ludwig II, but this was no longer being built, virtually accessible.

Center of the system is the prince hall with its richly stuccoed and frescoed equipment, which planned the interior designer Andrea Maini and the Kempten court painter Franz Georg Hermann designed. The extensive image program highlights the importance of the abbey as a spiritual and secular center in the Füssen country. Already in the 18th century, the plant was considered remarkable, especially the original arrangement of library and refectory (dining hall) in the south wing. Music Hall (formerly the Musical Theater Neuschwanstein) with view to Neuschwanstein castle Frauenkirche on the mountain: The Church beyond the Lech river was built in 1682/83 by Johann Schmuzer. The chancel was rebuilt in 1854 a chapel, which forms the beginning of Füssen Calvary. Krippkirche: The narrow, single-nave building in 1717, is a work by Johann Georg Fischer.

Füssen is over 2,000 years old and in that time a lot has accumulated. Feet located on the Via Claudia, the main street of the Romans to Germania mayor, it has the Säuling a Holy Mountain and many many pilgrimage churches in the area. The Wies Church even the World Heritage listed. Füssen has a beautiful old town with city walls, a castle from the 13th century, one of the oldest and largest monasteries of Germany and a large museum on the history of violin and lute construction, since all these instruments were created here. Do I need to mention the royal castles of Hohenschwangau and Linderhof and the high mountains and the many lakes around specially or your guests know them already?

I am happy to answer the question of your guests, but as these have not explained what kind of restaurant they think that is not so easy. Very good example is the fisherman's hut in hops on the lake, praised is the "Woazn", the so-called wheat beer brewery on Schrannenplatz in Fussen. Typical would be to name the Bavarian brewery in Kössel Speiden at Hopferau and the eagle in the center of Pfronten. Typically Italian, the restaurant Pescadore in the old town of Füssen. Overall, there is a great abundance of restaurants in and around Fussen, most are usually the country-inns in the smaller villages where not come so many tourists. Servus Peter

The Forggensee is a large reservoir lake with varying water level; hardly anyone lives there. You probably meant the Hopfensee with the Hopfen am See district, which is about 4 km from Füssen. There are several hotels on the beach road, but there's also a lot of traffic there. It is possible to walk, but the way is long and not particularly nice. Should you want to go shopping, visit the royal castles, go see a musical or movie, concerts or museums, then Hopfen am See is a bad base of operations. The mountain backdrop is beautiful, but it's the same as in Füssen. Hope that helps, regards, P.A. Bletschacher

"Hello, We are visiting Fussen in a few weeks and we are looking forward to our visit. Is it possible to take public transportation to any of the lakes and/or to the Tegelberg lift? Is it possible also to hike from the town center to the top of Tegelberg?" (posted 05/31/2014)

Hi Christine, Fussen has more than 10 lakes. Almost all can be reached by bus or hike on foot. Buses leave for Forggensee, Weissensee, Hopfensee, Bannwaldsee, Alpsee and Swan Lake. Walking distance to get to the upper lake, Mittersee and Alatsee. An alternative would be to rent out bicycles and to experience our great surroundings by bicycle, for example, an electric bike. In any case, you should make a tour with the E-bike around the Forggensee. There are about 30 km (= 2 hours with the E-Bike). Tegel mountain you can from the city walking. They are about 1.5 hours just on the go. It also depart from the center of town (more precisely from the station) regular buses to the castles or to Tegel mountain. If your hotel / apartments be a king card partner companies, you get a special guest card, the King card. With the use of the public transport network is for free.

"We will be in Fussen in late June. We would like to go to Falkenstein from Fussen and then return to Fussen. We wonder if we can take a bus or hire a taxi to take us up there. " (posted 06/05/2016)

The Falkenstein is a small mountain with a ruined castle and a small hotel on the summit. You can get up there to walk, but it takes a good hour and is at its best, because one is from the Austrian side as in the sun. Cars may go up, but because the road has only one lane, you can shut down only 15 minutes in each hour and then again 45 minutes up. By taxi, it is about 8 km from feet to the beginning of the mountain path at the Hotel Schloßangeralm. One should definitely speak with the taxi driver if he would go up. Make it can at any time. Maybe it works with a tip.

Liverwurst in cans, in various flavors, is definitely available at the V-Markt (Kemptener Straße 107, 87629 Füssen). Local butcher's may also have fresh product, but this kind of sausage is not common in our region, making the V-Markt your best bet.

Yes, there are. Füssen lies at the border of suebian poputation to bavarian people and as Austrian Influences in the kitchen Aas the Allgäu lies totally at or in the mountains, you will find a lot of dishes you will never find within the flatland. So we eat here Kässpatzen, pancakes and frying bill, Holder fritters, Schluzkrapfen and polenta. Nearly none of synthesis dishes can be Explained in a short comment, but I believe for guests who are really interested in kitchen questions, the Allgäu is a paradise. Peter

"We are 4 seniors traveling, so my question is this: is it possible to have a day tour that covers Ludwig's castle and some of Austria? We only have one and a half days in Fuessen so wish to see as much as possible." (posted 04/16/2014)

Dear guests, we recommend to visit the castles Neuschwanstein (near Füssen), Linderhof (near Garmisch Partenkirchen) and Herrenchiemsee (Munich). It is possible to reserve tickets for the castles online. This way, you will get the guided tours in the Bavarian castles you want. If you start your tour in Füssen, visit the castles Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau within 5 hours. Castle Linderhof is 60 km away, tour incl. driving time 5 hours. If you drive back to Munich next day, visit Castle Herrenchiemsee in the late morning. We wish you a wonderful journey! Yours Steffi & Martina

There is no direct tour from Füssen to the castles. If you take the bus or a taxi from the train station in Fuessen (3 minutes walk from our apartments) the ride takes 10 min. That will take you to the base of the castles where you buy your tickets for the castles, I recommend you buy your tickets online, saves time and also to get there as early as possible. When you have your tickets, you can get to the castle either by bus, horse drawn carriage or walking, it is quite steep to walk. You could also rent a car and drive directly there. Afterwards a trip to the numerous lakes around Fuessen, that is what I would recommend you. Therese

With 1 ½ days at disposal, I would suggest the following program: First Day: Castles Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau. The two castles are right by each other and are both must-sees. First tour Hohenschwangau, then hike (or take a horse-drawn carriage or a bus) to Neuschwanstein. On foot, it takes about 30 minutes, and everyone who doesn’t have a weak constitution can manage. Otherwise, take the carriage. Tickets are to be bought at the booth in Hohenschwangau, which can also give you the exact times of the guided tours through the castles. After the tour through Neuschwanstein, one should also have a look into the Museum of the Bavarian Kings, which is at the foot of the two castles in Hohenschwangau. For the evening of the first day, we suggest a visit to the Festspielhaus, a gigantic theater in Füssen right at the Forggensee. With a little luck, there will be an event put on. Tickets can be bought online in advance or at the ticket booth for the day’s events. Alternatively, one could visit the Royal Crystal Spa in Schwangau, a large thermal spa with some 10 saunas and 10 different baths. If you come on a Wednesday, go for a boot tour into the sunset, on the Forggensee lake. Have dinner either in the Schwangau spa, if you went there, or in the Königliche Brauereigaststätte (Royal Brewery Pub) in Schwangau. On the second day, I would suggest rising early and going via Reutte to Linderhof castle for a tour there. On the way back, travel through Oberammergau and have lunch there. This is the well-known place where passion plays are presented every 10 years. Alternatively, go on a city tour through Füssen and through the monastery church St. Mang. These tours are offered by the city of Füssen and held on various days of the week, for free. Once a week, there is also a great afternoon tour through the city. This would, should you happen to arrive on a day when it is done, be a great thing to do the first night there, too.

This question can not be answered very comprehensively. All of days from the 24 to 28 December are public holidays. Only on the 27 are the shops open briefly. So you can just go into the churches, celebrated with the large Christmas parties, visit the most interesting Geigenbaumuseum, or eat in the restaurants that will surely all be open. If there is snow, as is usually the case, then you can also ski, skate, or go to the National Training Centre for Ice, or play skittles on the lakes. Of course, the royal palaces are open again starting on the 26th. For this purpose, it would be best to contact the Fuessen tourism office, because they surely have their programs ready for this day.

Your guests ask a difficult question here. First, we do not know yet if we will not have snow, which would limit the travel possibilities somewhat. Secondly, the said days are almost entirely on public holidays, which means that at least the shops are almost all the time closed. We ourselves have only until 26.12. suitable for three persons free and it will be difficult or at least expensive, to find these days even a hotel room. One could on those days but visit the Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau as well as the Museum of the Bavarian kings, which is not quite as interesting. The Christmas market in Fussen is already closed at this time, would be open in a few days but the Museum of lute which therefore deserves special interest because feet is the birthplace of the entire violin making. The most beautiful Christmas Mass should be celebriert well in St.-Mang parish of feet, but would be interesting to the Wies Church (20 km) which counts as rococo Church World Heritage Site. There is also an exhibition of nativity scenes and more of it still in Oberammergau (50 km). But best of it when the ladies would come on at least a day earlier, because then many lively restaurants are open and the shops would. On Christmas Eve itself, many restaurants are closed, this would have to reserve at a larger hotel or go to Waldweihnacht to Schwangau (about 4km).

Your question is this time a bit unusual idiosyncratic. There are in Steingaden, about 20 km from the foot a carpentry Christa (always with Ch with us) produces the fin and there in Lechbruck a raft on the Lech dam with the tours, especially for children and young people are organized. On the river Lech you can no longer inspire, only on the Isar faraway there is a short distance on the raft ride with lots of music and beer rafts downriver, but that's less for kids (too dangerous). Your guests should consult the Tourist Administration in Lechbruck and possibly in Steingaden who know then would rather know where Christa could be the family name there is namely often. The one with the deer is not quite so simple. The large number of deer living in the mountains and they only come in the winter to feed into the valley. If your guests would come in winter, then you might book through the spa Schwangau a tour in the sleigh for deer feeding, with hundreds of deer of all sizes. In the summer, the animals are in the mountains and far apart. Since you should ask a hunter, the best also on the spa Schwangau, because a good part of the Ammergau Alps belongs to this community. There are also chamois, but the efordert a high mountain tour. Greetings PA Bletschacher

What are good places to go for shopping?

Within sight of the castles is the town Schwangau. At the entrance there is a large gas station, which is also a supermarket. There you get on Sundays food for a picnic.

Firstly, the castle is Neuschwanstein, 2. when your guests arrive by car, you should not drive immediately after Hohenschwangau where the royal palaces are but only after Schwangau and there drive through the entire town until the ARAL petrol station on the northern outskirts , This gas station is connected a small supermarket which is also open on Sunday. Opposite Your guest will then find a direct access to Hohenschwangau.

Any sporting activites and recommendations to stay active?

"I'm looking for an activity or camp for my 15 year old daughter from June 27 to July 2 in, or around, Fussen while I attend a training course there. She is an avid horseback rider - eventing and dressage, a groom. She also plays volleyball, basketball and other sports. She could also spend time in cultural or German language activities. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated." (posted 03/28/2014)

We cannot answer this question in all detail, but we hope to be able to name the proper place to ask and get the best answer: Füssen Tourismus, the official town government office, reachable at tourismus@fuessen.de. There definitely are several horse riding stables and summer camps for teenagers, not least because the federal sports training center for ice sports such as figure skating, curling, ice hockey, etc. is located here. There are also a few church organizations organizing such things. Unfortunately, I do not know any details because I was away for too long and hardly ever get questions like this.

Dear guests, we recommend a stay at the "Schloßrestaurant Neuschwanstein" (www.schlossrestaurant-neuschwanstein.de) a hotel close to the Castle Neuschwanstein. From there you can have a great walk over the Marienbrücke (Mary Bridge) up the Tegelberg mountain to get food in the mountain hut "Tegelberghaus" (www.tegelberghaus.de , 2000 m above sea level), enjoy the wonderful views and spend the night. From the Tegelberghaus you can take the cable car back down to the valley or hike over the mountain into the valley.
Answer provided by Martina Voigt on 05/02/2014

It’s a bit like asking for Christmas and Easter to be on the same day - not easy. Our recommendation would be to go for a real mountain tour with great views and lots of marching on one day, e.g. up the Tegelberg with the cable car and then in about 6 hours to teh Kenzenhütte for a well-earned rest in their beer garden. On the second day, start right at our house, go over the Ziegelberg, go around the Hopfensee lake and to the Freyberg-Eisenberg castle ruins. For a finish with a great view of the mountains, visit the Schoßbergalm there. In both huts, one cannot stay the night, but one can all the better sit and have some food. Afterwards, one can go back to Füssen for free by public bus, for good night’s sleep one is sure to need after such tours. Exact maps, descriptions of the trails, etc. can be found at Füssen Tourism, 100 m from house “Mein lieber Schwan”. Hiking tours to real mountain huts would have to be booked from the German Alpine Association (DAV), but the mountains are rather high, the trails are long and the bedding in such huts is rather simple. Because of the weather, this is only really possible in the middle of the summer or in early fall, however, and then the question would be if rooms would even be available. Finally, a third day, for a visit to Neuschwanstein castle, is almost a necessity. Best P.A. Bletschacher

You will find on our website a variety of sports facilities around Füssen. Whether Sports Camps take place, I can not tell you. Rather no, there still are no Bavarian school holidays and therefore the demand for sports camps would still be too low. Four weeks later, it would be different. But: We have the Forggensee (fifth largest Bavarian Lake) a sailing school. There, your daughter could do a course. We also have a great in-door climbing wall the German Alpine Club in vineyards (about 5 minutes by feet away). You could make a climbing course. Finally, there are around Füssen several riding and riding clubs. Even that would possibly something for you.

The right contact for such issues is Fussen tourism that can possibly make appropriate reservations. A 15-year-old daughter is here to do first have to visit all the castles and castle ruins. If it is good weather, they will then want to swim in one of our 17 lakes or for the first time want to climb a mountain in her life, of which very many we have here. Of course, there are also a number of stables here, but to hire a horse is likely to be actuarially very heavy and you may ride in a fully utilized agricultural area also just a few ways. Since it would be better to rent a bike, you can do 100 meters next to our house and thus to use the many bicycle paths. Or the daughter can run art: foot is the stronghold for any ice, because of the halls in the summer. There are also thermal baths, tennis courts, rafting in our mountain streams, ie, at only two days stay is rather the question of whether they should not stay longer. Servus Peter

Can wave surfing is not here, but pretty much everything else.

Is that enough? We also have a large ice stadium for 8,000 watching, because the foot is record champions in ice hockey and location of federal power center for ice sports, if your guest wants to attract quite a lot of viewers, but then he must already be quite athletic.

    The Füssen Heritage Museum/Benedictine Monastery of St Mang

    The Füssen Heritage Museum is situated in the south-west wing of the former Benedictine Monastery of St Mang, which was built under the architect Johann Jakob Herkomer from early 18th century Venetian examples.

    The former cells of the Benedictine monks house valuable works of art and archaeological finds from the over 1000-year history of this former abbey, which was not only the spiritual center but also the focal point of government and culture in the Füssen area. The medieval cloister that was uncovered below the baroque corridors also provide an insight into the medieval epoch of the history of the Monastery of St Mang.

    St. Mang's Abbey, Füssen

    St. Mang's Abbey, Füssen or Füssen Abbey (German: Kloster Sankt Mang Füssen) was a Benedictine monastery in Füssen in Bavaria, Germany.

    Dissolution

    On 11 December 1802, during the secularisation that followed the Napoleonic Wars and the Peace of Lunéville, the princes of Oettingen-Wallerstein were awarded possession of St. Mang. On 15 January 1803 Princess Wilhelmine ordered Abbot Aemilian Hafner to dissolve the abbey and vacate the premises by 1 March of that year.

    The contents of the library were shipped off to the new owners down the Lech on rafts. Most of the items are now in the library of the University of Augsburg, except for a small collection of especially valuable manuscripts, which are in the Augsburg Diocesan Archives.
