Not a chic place to visit but the most beautiful place on earth. Restaurants everywhere along with grocery stores. Stayed in a hotel but ate local all week. River is amazing and locals were more than happy to help. Will go back

Had a few hours to spare and walked around the main car free promenade in glorius sunny weather although it was only about 10 degrees. Lots of shops and places to see.

Typical Bavarian little town, very pleasant and peacefull. Do not repite my mistake and try to visit it during sunny days - otherwise there is nothing to do literally.

I followed the water stream for about 40 km long. I enjoyed it. There are some area where you can go barbecue just few miles from the village in the western direction.

We skied here with our kids 18, 15 and 11. Great resort, with lots of dining options. We were very impressed with the facilities and the staff was very helpful despite our lack of German communication skills!

This is a great place to ski or snowboard. This is not the largest of areas but there is lots of choice, mainly red and blue slopes with the odd black one. For the best of the best skiers, this area may not be demanding...More
