Location and orientation
The administrative district of Lower Bavaria comprises nine administrative districts and three independent towns: Landshut, Passau and Straubing. The district lies in the east of Bavaria and borders in the northeast on Czech South Bohemia and Pilsen, in the north on the Upper Palatinate and in the south on Upper Austria. A large part of the area of Lower Bavaria is occupied by the Bavarian Forest, an approximately 100 kilometre long and up to 1,500 metre high low mountain range between Bavaria and the Czech Republic. The region is extremely popular as a hiking area in summer and as a winter sports area in winter.
A glance at the figures reveals how green Lower Bavaria is: there are 66 nature reserves, 64 landscape conservation areas and over 300 geotopes.
Top 3 travel tips
You can gain an insight into the history and rich legends and myths of Lower Bavaria by visiting the castle ruins of Weissenstein bei Regen. The impressive and almost spooky castle ruin stretches from a 758 metre high quartz rock to dizzying heights and is located in the district of Weißenfeld from the small town of Regen. Construction of the castle began around 1100, but was almost completely burnt down in the 15th century and later rebuilt. But the ravages of time gnawed at the castle and it slowly decayed, but today it can be visited at least in parts after a renovation. In the "Eating House", an old grain tower converted into a residential building, there is today a small museum.2. Hiking and winter sports in the Bavarian Forest
What could be more beautiful than a snow-covered vacation rental surrounded by beautiful forests and gentle hills? Here, a network of several hundred kilometres of hiking trails is just waiting to be discovered by you on your cobblestones or by bike. The highest mountain in the Bavarian Forest is the Great Arber, around which the Bavarian Forest National Park also extends. Another highlight is the art of glassblowing in the Zwiesel area, a centuries-old craft that you can still follow in demonstrations today.3. Climbing in the high ropes course Passau
Somewhat outside Passau lies a very special attraction for all those who want to get high: the high ropes course Passau. It is a combination of a high ropes course and a climbing park and therefore describes itself as a forest adventure park. And here you can actually experience something! A climbing forest with 40 stations in different difficulty levels and with a height of almost 20 meters let the adrenalin shoot through your body and for the little visitors there is a special low rope route with 11 stations in a more moderate height. A great destination for an enjoyable day out during your holiday in the holiday home.
