Summer Vacation in the Allgäu
In southern Germany, between the Bregenzerwald and Ulm, and between Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Lake Constance, lies the lovely holiday region Allgäu.
A wonderful region for a relaxed holiday, between the succulent pastures where the Allgäu is known for.
A region that owes its name to the Allgäu Alps, some of which are in Germany, but also in the Austrian provinces of Vorarlberg and Tyrol. Here you will notice soon why the Alps became so famous, because nowhere else you can still enjoy the mountains in such a pristine state, as here in the Allgäu.
The region presents itself as the health region, and that fits exactly the image that the Allgäu has in the rest of the world. This is because life is still healthy, yet traditional, like it used to be.
With babbling mountain streams, grazing cows on the meadows, vast forests, good food, and lots of rest.
An excellent opportunity to enjoy in a region that simply has everything to offer what you would expect from a summer vacation.
