Bike ride to Schwangau?

by purrfect16

Hello,
I'll be in Fuessen in a few weeks, and was wondering if anyone has biked from Fuessen to Schwangau to see the castles. From the map, it looks like it's only 3.2 KMs, but I'm not sure if there is a safe trail for bikers/walkers? Any help is appreciated!

There are nice bike trails in the whole region, and the distance really is minimal.

The trail is part of the Bodensee-Königssee-Radweg, see info here:

On the Schwangau website (only in German) they write that they have put up new signs:

Walking and biking in Bavaria is a dream. They have separate little highways for bicycles. We were amazed. You will love it.

You will love walking or biking here. Southern Germany seems dedicated to biking and walking, with their own little roads. A question for the Germans: It appeared me, that one could ride or walk from town to town all over this region with out being on the roads(except in towns and villages I guess). Is this true?

Re: Bike ride to Schwangau?

by Kakapo2

Yes, there are so-called Radwege all over the place. The network is fantastic. Normally you only share the road with cars outside the cities and villages if the roads have very low traffic. Of course, there are always exceptions, but cycling in Germany is fantastic. (I miss this very much at the other end of the world and only cycle very rarely now because it is too dangerous.)

I visit Schwangau quite often and as I dont drive, I use the means of bike's to get around! Its a really nice ride from Fuessen to Schwangau, the bike paths are great and run the whole way and some of it is through the edge of the woods. The only thing to watch out for is biking when you get to Schwangau, the mini roundabout at the bottom of Hohenschwangau is hell for traffic!

Travel Tips for Füssen

Car rental options

by BettyTyranny

Not a "favorite thing" but a good tip for car rental in and near Füssen...

Don't be mislead by the tourist office, who is quick to give you the minimum amount of information: there are several places to rent cars in and near Füssen. For day trips, I like to use Schlichtling on Kemptenerstraße, not far from the Altstadt (old town). They offer all sorts of rates to suit any day trip, but no one-way journeys. At least one employee there speaks English.

There's also a Europcar pick-up station not far from Lechfall, but you need to arrange for the car to be there in advance because it's not an actual station.

There's also a Budget/National/Alamo station in Schwangau/Horn near the castles. Not sure if they are just a pick-up station or a full-service office, but you can reserve cars there online. (unlike Europcar, who doesn't list Füssen as a pick-up station)

Have fun!

History III

by Kuznetsov_Sergey

In the end of the XIX century Ludwig II constructed his new castle - Neuschwanstein in Hohenschwangau near Fuessen. The railway connected Fuessen and Kaufboiren in 1899. The artificial lake Forggen-see was created as a result of construction of a dam on the Lech.

Now Füssen is a small town in which 16 thousand inhabitants live. Today it is a resort and the center of winter sports. Füssen is at the southern end of the famous Romantic Road and attracts thousands of tourists from all over the world (even from Russia!).

Alte Stadtapotheke

by Kuznetsov_Sergey

The building of the old drugstore (Alte Stadtapotheke) has one of the most beautiful facades of the city. I've already wrote, that there are many very beautiful old houses in Fuessen. But Alte Stadtapotheke is allocated among them.

I am glad, that my opinion coincides with opinion of Michael which can be found out on his magnificent page Fuessen by Michael.

Franciscan monastery

by Kuznetsov_Sergey

There is the bridge across the Lech River in the city centre. Very fine views open on Schlossberg, Kurfuerstliches Schloss and Benedictine monastery of St. Mang from the bridge.

The Franciscan monastery and baroque church of Sacred Stephen is appreciable in the distance. The venerable monastery buildings with the baroque St Stephan’s Church are situated on a small hill above the River Lech from where there is a magnificent view of the medieval town centre. Next to them is the old St Sebastian Cemetery.

Unfortunately we did not manage to get there. Probably, we badly searched for an entrance, may be there is no free entrance. I don't know yet. Next time we'll try to find it out.

Baumgarten

by Kuznetsov_Sergey

There is a fine landscape park near to the Castle. A pass to the Castle is cut through a rock. A walk around of the Castle and picturesque park has given us huge pleasure. Pity that we hadn't enough time to stroll over the whole park.
