Tips for excursions in the Bavarian Forest
The Rißloch, which is a protected nature reserve, is a 32.9-hectare area near Bodenmais and is one of the highlights of the Arber region, which is also home to our medieval market. Along waterfalls, impressive hiking trails wind through the Bavarian primeval forest.
Built in the 12th century, Weissenstein Castle and the ruins of Weissenstein Castle near Regen that remain today have had an eventful history. The castle tower is still accessible today and offers a great view of the Bavarian Forest. The castle was built on the so-called pile, an equally interesting and impressive stone formation, which invites you to hike around it.
This castle was also built in the 12th century and made the people of Nußbach Nußbergers. The castle ruins can be visited and walked around. An audio guide can be borrowed from the adjacent castle tavern.
Bavaria's No. 1 geotope is the Great Pile near Viechtach. These quartz rock formations offer an impressive hiking backdrop along pine trees and juniper bushes and, with the remains of the former quarry, provide insight into a craft from a bygone era.
We could go on with this list, but we are not a travel guide, we just want to show you a few of the many possibilities of our vacation region to give you an incentive for a little escape from everyday life in the form of an excursion or vacation.
We look forward to your visit to the craft and medieval market Vehi Mercauts.
