What about a hike to begin with? Or an extended mountain-bike tour? Then relax for a bit with the family on one of the sun-bathing lawns. In between, make an excursion to the highline 179, one of the longest pedestrian suspension bridges in Europe, or take a visit to the castle of Burg Ehrenberg. Among all this, scatter some excursions to the royal castles in the neighbouring Allgäu region.
You can see where this is leading. The range of experiences all around the Plansee is too wide for a single holiday. With its location at 1000 m above sea level it is the ideal starting point for many activities, adventures and sightseeing destinations in Tyrol and the bordering region of Allgäu.
The Aktiv-Card, which every overnight guest will receive between 1st May and 31st October, provides a whole range of discounts within the Reutte Nature Park Region. You can find detailed information on the Tourist Association Website.
With a length of 406 meters, the highline 179 is the one of the longest pedestrian suspension bridges in the world. Since November 2014 brave visitors have been able to test if they are free of vertigo at a height of 114.6 metres. Right next to the highline 179 are further attractions, such as the Ehrenberg European Castle Museum.
The Ettal monastery was founded in the 14th century. The mighty basilica, the rococo sacristy and the treasures of the monastery library attract many tourists every year. The Benedictine abbey of Ettal is about 30 minutes away from the Plansee in the neighbouring Allgäu region.
Built in the 19th century, this is the only palace that Ludwig II of Bavaria lived to see completed. The original building on this site was a simple hunting lodge, which Ludwig converted into a pleasure palace with a magnificent park along the lines of Versailles.
With around 1.4 million visitors, Neuschwanstein is one of the most popular castles in Europe, making it the most famous of the royal castles. More than any other building, Neuschwanstein is witness to the ideals and longings of King Ludwig II. It was not built for representation, but for withdrawal.
Ehrenberg was once a mighty defensive site, administrative seat and customs station. The unmissable castle site towers over the Außerfern region. This former fortress against warlike attack is today a popular attraction for young and old and provides an insight into times long past.
Once there was a border post here, but now there is a completely border-free natural experience. The Forest Experience Centre Ziegelweis lies between the River Lech and the steep slopes of the Allgäu mountain country. Here you can experience the forest in its original form and understand the function it has in nature.
Located in the centre of Reutte, it is one of the most imposing buildings in the market square. It was built in the 16th century, probably by a wealthy citizen, as a residential house. The beautiful paintings inside the house also date from this time. The strong green colour gave the building its name.
Tradition and style can be felt everywhere in the Hotel Fischer am See. It doesn't matter if you're being pampered in the hotel, the restaurant or the wellness area, camping on the shores of the lake or taking an excursion on one of the passenger boats on the Heiterwanger Lake and the Plansee.
Only 4 km away from the Plansee, you can stay in wood-panelled rooms flooded with light and eat in a pleasant atmosphere. Well-known for its excellent cuisine and friendly service, the hotel is a highlight of the local area. Particularly recommended are the game and fish specialities.
The authentic, traditional Alpe Jägerhütte lies between the Plansee and Neuschwanstein Castle. From June to September the Keck family welcomes hikers and cyclists from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. (except on wet days) with traditional, regional Brotzeit snacks, coffee, cake and refreshing drinks.
