Fairy-Tale Village

An ideal holiday escape from fast-paced urban centers, Schwangau allows visitors to hike, cycle, swim, dance, and dine surrounded by a picture-perfect landscape. Positioned at the foot of the mountains and surrounded by lakes, Schwangau has been a popular place to settle as far back as the Stone Age. During Roman times, this small village became a military base. Roman commanders built private bathing houses and villas all over the area. Today, Schwangau is on the popular scenic sightseeing route called the Romantic Road. Two of the country's finest royal castles help attract visitors. As appealing as they are, not everything revolves around these fairy-tale sights. The village also offers campgrounds, fine hotels, and modern spa centers. Schwangau is in Upper Bavaria.
