The Bavarian Forest National Park promises wonderful nature. With vast forests, rushing streams, panoramic summits and wild gorges, there is a lot to discover around St. Oswald monastery. Whether you're dreaming of a relaxing getaway or an active holiday, you'll find exactly what you need in the Bavarian Forest National Park as you hike through the most beautiful mountains and deep into mystical gorges.

When you stay at Pension Fernblick, a guesthouse on the edge of the monastery complex in the Bavarian Forest, the name says it all (Fernblick means distant view in German). Each day starts with a dreamlike panorama here. In this Collection, we present our five favourite hikes which start either directly from the accommodation or a short drive away. A hike through the mystical stone gorge here is an absolute highlight. Over thousands of years, the Große Ohe river carved through the rock creating an Eldorado for hikers. If you are the sporty type, then you can set off directly from our front door and hike to the Great Lusen, one of the most spectacular summits in the forest. On the way, you pass mighty granite boulders, the Glass Ark, and the Martinsklause, one of the best preserved clauses in the national park. A Tour over Rachel peak is also a wonderful adventure with incredible views and two rustic mountain huts en route. A hike along the circular treetop path and animal enclosures in the Klosterfilz will amaze hikers of all ages as you discover wet meadows and unique habitats.

Our Pension Fernblick is only a stone's throw away from the Bavarian Forest National Park and is the perfect starting point for various trips – whether hiking and mountain biking in summer or cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in winter. You can look forward to comfortable rooms with a balcony, a rich breakfast buffet, Bavarian snacks and a welcome schnapps. Our house, which has an orchard and play area, is located on a panoramic hill amongst stunning nature. As we say locally, feel ‘wia dahoam’ (at home), and leave everyday life behind you.

You can catch the bus to Sankt Oswald, a town nearby. Some hikes end directly at bus stops or train stations, so you can easily travel back to the starting point or reach Sankt Oswald. As our guest, you get a GUTi, the Gästeservice Umwelt Ticket for free which you can use on public transport. For more information, see: bayerwald-ticket.com/fahrplaene-im-tarifgebiet-bayerwald-ticket-guti.
