SIGHTS IN THE ALLGÄU
Numerous cultural treasures make a cultural holiday in the Allgäu a special experience.
At the art-historical forks of the Swabian Baroque Road, at the end of the Romantic Road and high on the German Alpine Road, one quickly falls for the charm of churches, castles, fortresses, monasteries and medieval small towns. With a southern flair, they allure you to visit, to stroll through the town, to enjoy historically documented festivals and provide scope for traditional, classical and modern music and theater performances with an international reputation.
World-famous: Neuschwanstein Castle in Schwangau is known as the fairytale castle. It is the most popular castle of King Ludwig II and one of the most famous sights in Germany. It is visited by no less than 1.3 million tourists per year.

It belongs to the world-famous royal castles of Ludwig II, King of Bavaria. Hohenschwangau Castle was the summer residence of the royal family and is located directly opposite to Neuschwanstein Castle. An absolute must for every visitor to the Allgäu!
Small but magnificent building, also one of King Ludwig II’s castles. It was built in several stages from 1870 to 1886 and is the smallest one of the three castles – it is also the only one that was completed during his lifetime. It is absolutely worth seeing – Not only because of its fabulous interior, but also because of the Moroccan House and the unique gardens.
High Palace of Füssen
The High Palace in Füssen is one of the most important secular buildings of the German late Gothic period and is not only a sight to see inside: unique illusion paintings can be discovered in the courtyard.
The Church of Wies
Rococo jewel and world cultural heritage. The Pilgrimage Church of the Scourged Saviour of the Wies. Anyone coming to the Wies for the first time in their life will wonder what the occasion might have been to build such an unusually magnificent place of worship in such a lonely area.
Impressive Gothic building with Baroque redesigning elements from the year 1710. The monastery still brews its own beer according to a 400-year-old tradition. The Ettal monastery liqueur is also produced here. Guided tours for groups take place through the church, brewery museum and distillery.
