Vacation in the Bavarian Forest

Location and orientation

Holidays at the border to the Czech Republic

The Bavarian Forest is a low mountain range of up to 1,456 metres in length, one hundred kilometres long, which geomorphologically belongs to the Bohemian Forest. It lies in Lower Bavaria on the Czech border and touches the Upper Palatinate in the north and the border of Upper Austria in the south. The journey from Munich to the Bavarian Forest by car takes about two hours.

Important cities in the region

In the Bavarian Forest there is a multitude of towns with historical centres to discover, such as the old trading town of Cham, whose centre is the market square. In addition, there are some recognised resorts, such as Grafenwiesen and Hohenwart. Well preserved Waldler houses can be seen in Traitsching.

Bavarian Forest: Nature Park and National Park

The area along the border with the Czech Republic is now a national park with a densely overgrown primeval forest. The Bavarian Forest Nature Park stretches from the border ridge towards the Czech Republic to the north of the Danube. Some of the hiking trails run across the border as far as the Šumava National Park.

Travelers and Activities

A paradise for hikers

The Bavarian Forest is also known as the "Green Roof of Europe". There are countless beautiful landscapes and miles of hiking trails that run through untouched nature. A popular hiking trail is the 660 kilometre Goldsteig quality trail, which stretches from Marktredwitz to Passau. In addition, there are specially marked mountain hiking trails, family routes, pilgrim trails and long-distance hiking trails to discover.

One of the most beautiful winter sports regions

Whether skiing, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, tobogganing or snowboarding, in the Bavarian Forest there are several possibilities to get directly from the holiday apartment to the piste. Whether in the Dreiländereck, the National Park, the Großer Arber, the Brotjacklriegl or around St. Englmar, the winter sports areas promise a good snow guarantee and thus the best conditions for your winter holiday.

Let your soul dangle during a wellness meal

If pure relaxation is your top priority, then take advantage of the wellness and spa offers available in the Bavarian Forest. Here you will find a whole range of thermal baths and spas where you can really indulge yourself. One of the youngest health resorts is Bad Kötzting, which also has a Kneipp spa. The finest wellness can also be found in Bodenmais as well as in many other health resorts, where wellness landscapes, beauty treatments, Kneipp facilities and hot grottos await you.

The area of the Bavarian Forest appears in the oldest written sources of Aristotle, who called the region "Hercynia silva".

Top 5 travel tips

Winter idyll in the Bavarian Forest
Winter idyll in the Bavarian Forest

1. Feel like a knight and a princess in the beautiful castle Weissenstein in Regen. The medieval castle ruin offers a beautiful panoramic view of the Bavarian forest. A small museum located in the cultural monument also gives interesting insights into the past.

A special experience is an extended walk on the "Baumwipfelpfad" in Neuschönau. Up to 25 metres above the forest floor you can walk on a wooden path in the middle of the Bavarian forest and breathe in the fresh air. The highlight of the trail is the 44 metre high "tree tower", from which you can enjoy a spectacular view of the green surroundings.

3. There is fun for young and old in the Bayerwald-Tierpark in Lohberg. In the Bavarian Forest National Park on the Great Arber you will find over 100 different animal species in the wild. Observe wild chamois, otters, moose and even wolves in their natural habitat. Rent an apartment in the Bavarian Forest and explore the incomparable nature park!

4th Pure bathing pleasure in summer you will experience at the Großer Arbersee in Bayerisch Eisenstein. At the foot of the Großer Arber you can splash around in peace and quiet and let the sun shine on your stomach. The impressive lake, with its small floating islands and waterfalls, dates back to the Ice Age. In the evening you can let the eventful day end in your vacation rental in the Bavarian Forest.

5. Make a nice excursion to Bodenmais. This lovely place is perfect for an active holiday! In winter you can cross-country ski down the mountains on the numerous slopes and then warm up in a rustic mountain hut. In summer, the mountain area is ideal for extended hikes and tours by mountain bike. In the evening you can relax in holiday apartments with sauna in the Bavarian Forest.

1. To the Adalbert Stifter memorial rooms

Visit the museum "Stifter und der Wald", which is located in the Lackenhäuser Rosenberger Gut. It is the only museum in Germany that deals with the works of the painter and poet Adalbert Stifter. Here on three floors you get interesting insights into the life and work of the artist. In addition, the exhibition house deals with the history of the Rosenberg estate.

2. Visit the legendary chapel

The ant chapel, built of wood in 1854, can be found in the Hohenau district of Schönbrunnerhäuser. The construction goes back to a legend in which a Samei farmer found a picture of the Mother of God at an anthill and built the chapel here after several unusual events. Today the Ant Chapel is an important place of pilgrimage.

3. To the highest mountain village of the Bavarian Forest

The mountain village Waldhäuser is a district of Neuschönau which lies at an altitude of 1,000 metres. Discover the charming village with its St. Maria im Wald church and sculpture park. The Kneipp facility with water treading pool provides additional relaxation before you continue your hike.

4. The summit at the border

Mountain hikers should definitely pay a visit to the Bavarian Plöckenstein. The mountain ridge with its summit at 1,365 meters is located directly in the three-country corner and runs along the German-Czech and Czech-Austrian border. From there you have a panoramic view in south direction, up to the summit chain of the Alps.

5. Experience entertaining celebrations in summer

In the traditional Bavarian Forest region there are numerous joint activities all year round. These include open-air events, citizen events and mountain festivals, musical events and much more. In mid-July, for example, the open-air theatre at Mitterfels Castle will be giving interesting performances in the midst of a historic ambience. The Waldkirchner Marktrichtertage is a historical reenactment of how law used to be spoken in Waldkirchen. Also extremely entertaining are the Viechtacher Bürgerfest and the Grafenauer Volksfest, both of which take place in July.
