Location description from owner
The Bavaria region
The Bavarian Alps at the border of Germany to Austria are a very popular holiday destination for people from all over the world. Most British think of Austria or Switzerland when they see photos of our area. Get the "The Sound of Music"-feeling and see the setting of Chitty-Chitty Bang Bang.
The Schwangau area provides all the leisure opportunities you could wish for: golf, tennis, hiking, horse riding, paragliding, cycling, mountain biking, rock climbing, sailing, swimming, canoeing and winter activities such as skiing, snowboarding, ski touring and snow shoeing. You can take the horse carriage/sledge to the castles or the deer feeding areas, join the local festivals and admire the Bavarian dress: Lederhosen and Dirndl; and enjoy a variety of beers and culinary highlights.On the cultural side, this area boasts of history and culture. The famous castle Neuschwanstein which inspired Disney to come up with Cinderella Castle, the parent castle Hohenschwangau and Füssens medieval castle are on the must-see list. 2 medieval ruins can be the destination of one of your walks and Roman remains abound around us: a Roman bath/villa, roman pillars and the old Roman trading route Via Claudia Augusta passes by our house (it's now part of the cycling route around lake Forggensee). Even the celts had their settlements here.Come for Christmas and New Year Celebrations and enjoy romantic the Christmas markets and fireworks.

“Excellence is Birkeneck”
Staying at Birkeneck was a real pleasure. The accommodation was comfortable with a mixture of contemporary and traditional style furniture. The kitchen was of very high quality. The area is renowned for its spectacular scenery, historic castles and walking opportunities. The village of Schwangau is within walking distance and has a good supermarket, bakery/teashop and a very splendid Brewery / restaurant (well worth a visit). The reception and local knowledge provided by Cornelia when you arrive are very useful and were much appreciated.
We rented the entire Birkeneck house, which has spectacular views over castle Neuschwanstein, the mountains and meadows. All 3 apartments were modern equipped , with all the comforts of home, extremely well maintained and in a wonderful location. We even brought our longhaired Dachshund with us from Dallas, Texas, and he had a blast! This place is a true gem and the owners are professional and very accomodating. We can't wait to go back. HIGHLY recommend this place. HP, Dallas, Texas
“Magical in the snow!”
Being Australians, living in London for 2 years, we wanted to experience a "White Christmas." So, we looked up holiday homes in Germany and discovered Birkeneck with "castle views." When we arrived, we couldn't believe how lucky we were to be spending our Christmas there! (we loved it so much the first time, we went back for Christmas the following year!) The apartment looks directly at Neuschwanstein Castle and Hohenschwangau Castle, from the large windows opening out onto the balcony. The apartment is new and fresh and extremely modern. We enjoy staying there because of the modern kitchen facilities, the huge bathroom and the state of the art entertainment system. The loft apartment has a beautiful, cosy feeling, with the slanted wooden roof and windows looking up into the sky. Birkeneck has been an amazing place to stay at, for the past two Christmases. We LOVE the snow that covers the fields around the apartment and as far as the eye can see. Birkeneck is a great, warm place to stay in Winter, and truly magical with the castles lit up at night time.
“An excellent experience in the Allgau”
From first to last, every contact with the owner was immediate and friendly, and every request from us was followed up completely. The property itself is spotless, warm and has wonderful views to the castles and the mountains beyond. Internet access is easily available. The towns of Schwangau and Fussen are very close by car or on foot. The only downside to the experience was departing!
“Birkeneck 3 Luxury Apartment in Schwangau”
The apartment is comfortable and fully furnished. It is clean and has a beautiful view on the castle of Neuschwanstein. All around you can admire green fields and a beautiful lake. A great place adapt for all ages, for a best holiday!
