Summer holidays in the Bavarian Forest
Enjoyment is the key word in the Bavarian Forest.
The south of Germany is known as a holiday destination where you can spend a summer full of moments of enjoyment. Moments you later think back to, laughing, and with a smile on your face.
This is no different in the Bavarian Forest. A lovely region where life is still good, and where behind every bend in the road, you find a new opportunity to re-enjoy.
The Bavarian Forest has even elevated this to a higher level, amidst an intact nature, where you can enjoy during long walks through the lush mountain scenery.
A region with a wide variety, with everything that makes a holiday fun. A nature that is pure, and includes a woodland of more than 6,000 square kilometers, but also with an impressive national park, two nature parks and numerous attractions.
The Bavarian Forest is also eminently suitable as a holiday destination for families with children, because children are very important in the region.
