In the Bavarian Forest You Can Find Bears - Not Only in Springtime

Are you looking for special family vacations in the wild nature of the Bavarian Forest? Then the National Park region of the Bavarian Forest, also known as the Bear Region, is the ideal holiday destination for you. Awesome holidays are guaranteed by the "Bear Towns" Grafenau and Neuschönau. Because there is a bear in its coat of arms, the health resort town Grafenau is regarded as the "Bear Capital" of the Bavarian Forest. In Grafenau there is summer toboggan run and a public wave pool.

Very close nearby is Neuschönau, the "Bear Resort". An animal outdoor enclosure gives home not only to bears, but also to wolves, lynx, and other fair game. In Neuschönau you will also find the longest treetop trail in the world where you cannot only hike in dizzying heights but also learn a lot about the nature of the Bavarian Forest.

All Children Have Soooooo Much Fun Here!

For our young guests there are some special hiking trails that are tailored to the needs of children and allow them to explore the Bavarian Forest. Here they can discover, climb, scramble, look, smell and feel - everything for a great and memorable day in the nature.

Among the special hiking recommendations for children there is, for example, the Swing Path ("Schaukelweg") in Breitenberg, with a total of 18 swings on a path of 5.3 km, inviting visitors for leisurely picnics. This path offers a magnificent view of the Bohemian forest and the Muehlviertel. The path may also be traveled with baby carriages and therefore it is suitable for families with young children.

On the Health Path Rusel you can experience nature with your eyes, nose and ears. This loop route of 2.5 km takes you through several stations. At the station "experience with all senses" you can learn to see with your soles on various soils or in the water. The Buzzing Rock at the "sound station" takes you on an acoustic journey. Other places invite you to relax and recharge your batteries in nature.
