Neuschwanstein Castle

Seven weeks after King Ludwig’s II death in 1886 Neuschwanstein Castle opened its door to the general public. The shy king had the castle built so he could seclude himself from the public- now his refuge is a public magnet the world over.

Neuschwanstein belongs to one of the most visited palaces and castles in Europe. About 1.3 million people visit the “Fairy Tale King’s“ home. During the summertime an average 6,000 visitors pass through the rooms per day which were meant for one single king.

European Fortress Worlds Ehrenberg

East of Reutte the fortress ensemble with its castles arises mightily. Illuminated majestically from all sides at night it pronounces its earlier might over 2000 years of history. Kings, emperors, crusaders and tradesmen, each one had to pass through here.
The Fortress Ensemble Ehrenberg
Ehrenberg Castle sits high on its throne above the Außerfern. Every traveller and hiker is impressed by its protracted walls which served as ramparts against enemy attacks. During the Middle Ages Ehrenberg Clause was fiercely contested, because an important trade route from South to North passed through there. The massive walls let us surmise that canon shots and battle cries were often to be heard in front of Ehrenberg Castle. Many lords and nobility must have experienced these walls, but one thing has not changed, namely the impressive landscape around Ehrenberg which still continues to lure visitors in droves. Today Ehrenberg is a in- and outdoor-“world of experiences” with a historical backdrop.

Local Museum: Grünes Haus (The Green House)

Museum Grünes Haus Reutte

The "Grüne Haus" in the centre of Reutte belongs to the grandest buildings in town. It was erected in the 16th c. presumably by a well-to-do citizen of Reutte as his residence. The beautiful wall paintings inside the house are also from this time. The painter from Reutte, Johann Jakob Zeiller, created the facade of the building in 1779. The house was named after its vibrant green colour.

Wonderful Lakes for Swimming in our Region

The Lake Plansee is connected to the Lake Heiterwang, originally 68 meters higher, by a 300 m long canal built in1908. It gets its water from there as well as from other tributaries. In the northwest the lake has a runoff through the so-called Little Lake Plansee and into the Archbach Stream to the Lech River. Lake Plansee has two basins, one 78 and the other 72 m deep, and a total surface area 2,87 km² and is the largest lake in the Außerfern District. The highest-situated commercial boating line in Austria is on Lake Plansee and Lake Heiterwang which runs its tourist boat trips from the end of May until the late Fall.
