The sky shines deep blue, the mountain peaks gleam snow-white. Forests and meadows are lush green, and the church with its characteristic onion tower rises from the village in the valley. The view from the hotel shows: Upper Bavaria is simply beautiful. The Wendelstein rises majestically above Bayrischzell, one of the most famous mountains in the German Alps thanks to its characteristic peak.

From Grainau, a few kilometres to the west, you can walk or take the train to Germany's highest mountain, the Zugspitze, which measures 2,962 metres.

In the region, which also includes Lake Starnberg, Lake Staffelsee, Lake Kochelsee and Lake Walchensee, holidaymakers also enjoy cycling.

At the end of the 19th century, Bavaria's "fairytale king" Ludwig II was drawn to Upper Bavaria for his holidays. The monarch created an impressive legacy with his three castles Linderhof, Herrenchiemsee and Neuschwanstein. All three buildings are worthwhile destinations when you set off on an excursion from one of the region's Romantik Hotels & Restaurants. Neuschwanstein near Füssen overwhelms with its location on a cliff alone, nearby Linderhof with its homeliness and Herrenchiemsee on an island with its magnificent architecture. However, Ludwig only stayed there for just under ten days. After his death in 1886, large parts of the interior remained unfinished.
