Munich to Fussen Self-guided Walking Tour

Starting in Munich, Bavaria’s vibrant capital on the Isar, this walking tour has many more treats in store for you such as little villages where time stood still, several impressive monasteries, churches with typical Baroque turrets and tiny chapels. The strikingly beautiful landscape with its green pastures, meadows and forests, murmuring streams, roaring rivers and idyllic lakes have a calming effect on both mind and body. Lake Ammersee, Bavaria’s third biggest lake and lake Forgensee in the Allgäu region are both part of the itinerary. Finally two very special highlights await in Füssen - Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau, King Ludwig’s two fairy tale castles. The breathtaking countryside, amazing cultural sights and welcoming Bavarian atmosphere will captivate and enchant you!
