Palace
“The famous castle which is the real life model for Disney, 45 minutes with the car, 2-3 h by train. Classic tourist destination in the Bavarian mountain area called Allgäu. Get there early. Tickets can be bought online. It is a must see, built by the romantic and extravagant former King Ludwig II. of Bavaria, whose death still remains a mystery. ”

Spa
“An opulent (and slightly kitsch!) spa resort with indoor/outdoor pools, saunas, steam rooms and much more. Ideal for the family or a romantic treat. Don't miss the 'Aufgüsse'. FYI, upstairs is nude! ”
