There are many different ways to get to the top of the Kalvarienberg. For some the first part is easy to walk but there are alternatives that lead through the forest with steep and narrow paths. As it is only about 30 minutes to get...More

Even in record heat it was a nice walk up the hill from the falls. Take water. The stations of the cross were much more ornate that anything I expected. We walked down the trail more directly towards town. The view in all directions was...More

This hike was mostly uphill but not strenuous or anything. When near the top there is view of the castles on a viewing platform. The hike starts right outside of downtown Fussen, by the narrow church. The statuary is really nice (as they all seem...More
