Limitless nature – the Bavarian Forest National Park is home to spectacular flora and fauna. In the forest, nature is allowed to be nature again and return back to its original wildness and primeval forest. When nature is left to its own devices, it can thrive.

In this Collection, we introduce you to the Waldhotel Seebachschleife and the nature around the Great Arber mountain, the so-called ‘King of the Bavarian Forest’. Standing at 1,456 metres (4,776 feet), it is the highest mountain in the area and is deservedly a popular adventure destination. At its foot, you roam through magnificent forests, discover trees that are several hundred years old, and explore moor and felt landscapes.

Green is the color that defines everything here. Whether it's the lush grassy green of the foliage, the mystical emerald green of the Arber lakes, the fir green of the dense coniferous forests or the deep green of the rivers – the Bavarian Forest leaves a lasting impression on you. You can look forward to a nice mixture of somewhat more demanding Tours with more than 20 kilometres (12.4 miles) and more than 800 metres (2,624 feet) of altitude on the Falkenstein or easy walks around the Großer Arbersee lake. On two Tours, you also walk on the Goldsteig, a 660-kilometer (372 mile) long long-distance hiking trail that runs through the Bavarian Forest and beyond.

There is also a lot of history to discover in the Bavarian Forest. As a glass cutting and manufacturing village, Seebachschleife has an interesting past. In 1851, Wilhelm Abele built a glass and mirror cutter, diverting a channel from the Großer Regen river to power it. The glass was supplied by the Seebachhütte nearby. From 1919 to 1928, the Seebachschleife served as an eyeglass lens grinding shop for the Rodenstock company's Regener plant. Since 1934, the former glass grinding building has housed a power plant.

All Tours begin more or less directly from the Waldhotel, a great starting point for your adventures. You can either walk or take the bus to the starting points – check the timetables at reception. We recommend arriving by train as a car is not necessary in the region. The Waldhotel offers a shuttle service from the train station Bayerisch Eisenstein. The train ride from Munich via Plattling takes about three and a half hours. As you can see, your holiday at the Waldhotel Seebachschleife is characterised by relaxation and pure nature.

    The Großer Arber is practically our local mountain. The Waldhotel Seebachschleife is located directly at the foot of the largest mountain in the Bavarian Forest - and on the beautiful “Goldsteig” hiking trail, on which you can discover the low mountain range of the Upper Palatinate Forest and the Bavarian Forest over 660 kilometers.

    The hotel has a lift and 42 double rooms, all of which have a balcony. The amenities in the house include a large indoor swimming pool, a sauna, an infrared cabin and relaxation room, a hydro-jet massage, a heated ski, drying and storage room and a large selection of drinks. For example, you can try the regional beers.

    Great hiking routes around the Arber, the Falkenstein and Sumava National Parks and the Bavarian Forest cross-country ski trails can be found right on the doorstep or you can reach them free of charge by bus and train. The next bus stop with direct connections to the train station or to the Großer Arber is only a two-minute walk away. So you don't need a car on site - why not get there by train! We offer a free shuttle service to Bayerisch Eisenstein train station.

    If you would like to explore the area on your own, you can also rent in-house e-bikes. Otherwise we have a lot of great excursion tips in the form of brochures for you at our reception. Of course, we would also be happy to advise you personally. Look forward to an eventful holiday in the middle of the natural paradise of the Bavarian Forest!
