Allgäu / Bavarian-Swabia

Bavarian-Swabia is the tourist and leisure region situated between Augsburg to the south and Ries to the north, between 'Wittelsbach country' to the east and the towns of Ulm and Neu-Ulm on the Baden-Württemberg / Bavarian border to the west. The Danube flows through Bavarian-Swabia from Ulm to Donauwörth, and the 'Romantic Road' crosses the region from north to south taking in the towns of  Wallerstein, Nördlingen, Harburg and Donauwörth, Augsburg and Friedberg.  The following are some of the tourist routes in the region: 'Via Claudia Augusta' (from Northern Italy right as far as the Danube), the 'Via Julia Augusta' (from Salzburg via Munich to Augsburg and Donauwörth) and 'Sisi's Road', which leads from Augsburg and Aichach to Godollo in Hungary or to castle Miramare near Trient.

The Romantic Road by Bike and the Danube Bike Trail count among the best-known bike trails.  Signposted hiking trails are to be found almost everywhere - from leisurely walks or more challenging circular routes to full-day hikes along the 'Way of St. James' pilgrimage trail in Bavarian-Swabia. The most popular tourist attractions are probably the Fugger city of Augsburg and the mediaeval town of Nördlingen in the Ries region, the former free town of Donauwörth, Ulm Minster and LEGOLAND Germany in Günzburg.

A wide range of cultural events in the numerous castles, palaces, churches and abbeys turns any trip into a real experience.  And there are things everywhere for children to discover: whether it is LEGOLAND, the Augsburg puppet theatre, the Danube fens or a holiday on a farm - this is where the whole family can fulfil their own special holiday dream.  The Allgäu with its mountains and lakes and Neuschwanstein Castle are not far away, either.
