The library in St. Mang Abbey (former Benedictine monastery, today Füssen Heritage Museum) in the historic town centre

And only two miles away, you can see the medieval townscape of Füssen. The "Hohe Schloß" (facades with illusive paintings, art gallery), the baroque abbey "St. Mang" ("Fürstensaal" hall with classical concerts, museum of the city of Füssen, basilica with crypt, "St. Anna" chapel with the famous »Dance of Death«), city wall and fortified towers– and last but not least the Italian atmosphere of the old part of town with fountains, street cafes, shops and boutiques are all worth a visit.

Hopfen on Lake Hopfensee

View of Hopfen on lake Hopfensee not called the »Allgäu Riviera« for nothing. The cosy village combines the atmosphere of an Allgäu village with the open minded, cultural and positive atmosphere the Mediterranean is famous for. Lake Hopfensee is one of Bavaria's warmest lakes, this means summer always is a little longer here. Windsurfers and sailors feel at home between spring and autumn just like swimmers who enjoy the public bath with children's playground. If you want to go hiking, you will be fascinated by the forest paths around lake Hopfensee.
