7 days in the Westallgäu with varied day trips for young and old
Published: Aug, 2020 | Travel Date: Jul - Aug 2020
The seven days we stayed on a holiday farm. During the day we made a new short trip every day, then you could end the day in the quiet courtyard. The holiday farm is particularly recommended for families with children and animal lovers. Excursion destinations are easy to reach by car.
Schreckenmanklitz is located in the valley, which is why a car is recommended as a means of transport for longer distances. There are numerous restaurants in the immediate vicinity that are recommended. Recommended restaurants ... - in hamlet: angel - in Lindenberg: zum Löwen, Lindenbergerhof, Kesselhaus, Bayrischer Hof
Ferienhof Wiedemann, Schreckenmanklitz, Weiler-Simmerberg, Germany
The holiday farm is located between Lindenberg and Weiler in full nature. There are numerous animals (horses, cows, dogs, cats, etc.), making it a paradise for children. In addition, there is a very personal and cordial approach on the farm! Breakfast can be booked. Fresh milk, eggs and bread rolls are also available for the holiday guests to collect every morning.
Activities and Sights
Hochgrat - Oberstaufen
The Hochgrat is a mountain in the Allgäu Alps and about 1800 meters high. In general, this place is recommended for hikers, tobogganists and people who just want to enjoy the panorama on the summit. In principle, there are 2 options to climb the mountain. On the one hand, you can get up and down with the cable car. On the other hand, fit people can also climb the mountain on foot. You can toboggan there in winter. Paragliders also use the Hochgrat as a starting point, which is why many paragliders can be seen. Above is a hut with food. Travel time by car: 40 min.
The Scheidegger waterfalls are something for big and small. We were pleasantly surprised, as the circular route through the forest to the waterfalls offered more than expected. We were there in the morning around 10 o'clock and it was not very busy. The circular route takes approx. 1 hour, with smaller partial paths a longer stay is possible. There is also a playground and a kiosk. Travel time by car: 9 min.
Alpseebergwelt - Immenstadt
The Alpsee-Coaster is Germany's longest year-round toboggan run and is located between Oberstaufen and Immenstadt. Is worth a visit for young and old. Located in a beautiful mountain range. Travel time by car: approx. 25 min.
The Hausbachklamm is a circular hiking trail. The large circular route starts in Weiler with 15 km and the small circular route begins in Oberreute and covers approx. 5 km. You hike in pure nature, completely secluded from everything. Most of the trail is in the shade. There are many swimming opportunities in the Hausbachklamm. Sturdy shoes are recommended. Travel time by car: 5 min.
Wangen contains a beautiful and cozy old town that invites you to shop and have a cozy coffee. Preferred days of the week for a trip to Wangen are Wednesday and Saturday, as one of the largest and most beautiful weekly markets in the Westallgäu is set up on these days. The weekly market is open from 8 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. Travel time by car: approx. 20 min.
Möggers educational forest trail
The forest nature trail Möggers is a circular route, which contains some sporty highlights, such as suspension bridge over a stream, swap swing ala Tarzan across the stream, etc. It is highly recommended for a family outing with children. There is a petting zoo and a traditional hut with food. There are also barbecue facilities, which must be booked in advance. Travel time by car: approx. 15 min.
The island of Lindau is connected to the mainland by a bridge and is located directly in / on Lake Constance. It offers wonderful viewpoints over Lake Constance and contains a quaint old town. Many water activities can be done there, such as Stand-up paddling, pedal boating, motor boating or just going for a swim. Travel time by car: approx. 35 min.
Forest lake in Lindenberg with a lido
The forest lake can be traversed with a circular route. The circular route offers some insights into the animal kingdom at the forest lake, through extensive signage. In addition, the free lido invites you to cool off in summer. In winter you can go ice skating there. Travel time by car: approx. 10 min.
Vacations in the West Allgaeu are ideal for people who want to get away from everyday life a little. Because of the day trips you did something new every day, but the days were not overcrowded, so you still found time to read a book or relax in other ways. All in all it was a very successful vacation on the vacation farm, which I can especially recommend to families with children or animal lovers.
