Village in 🇩🇪Germany

Schwangau

Schwangau is a sleepy village nestled in the foothills of the Bavarian Alps. Home to two majestic castles, Schwangau is the gateway to the spectacular fairy-tale castles of Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau.

Spend a day exploring the area’s remarkable royal history, then take a dip in the crystal-clear lake or head for the slopes of nearby Tegelberg mountain. In summer, Schwangau is a popular spot for hikers and cyclists, with trails that meander through lush forests and bright meadows. For the less adventurous, wander the streets of the picturesque village and explore the traditional shops and restaurants. For a truly unforgettable experience, take the cable car up to the top of Tegelberg for incredible views across the Alps.
