    One of the most beautiful viewpoints in the Allgäu! Toward the north, the hilly alpine foothills spread out at your feet and in the south, the steep mountains rise dramatically above the Alpsee. However, the dimensions only become apparent when you see how tiny the famous Neuschwanstein Castle appears in front of the dramatic mountain backdrop.

    Very varied short climb. It was fun, especially because there was snow

    Part of stage 7 of the Lechweg. Was really great! For the view worth the climb! We will also visit Füssen again.

    The Füssen Calvary unites in a special way religion, nature and art (the Nazarene). The Calvary was built in the 19th century. Initiator was the then parish priest Johann Baptist Graf (1802-1862). Graf's religious life was in the tradition of Johann Michael Sailer and Christoph von Schmid. When Hohenschwangau Castle was renovated and redesigned, many painters found work in the castle and later in the design of the chapels.

    Very nice view of Füssen ... the steep climb through the forest is worthwhile.
