Great time to visit is in the morning when all the para and hang gliders take off from the platform on top of the mountain. You can walk up, extremely difficult, or pay for the cable car up to the top

If you go to the Füssen area you cant miss the views at Mount Tegelberg. Just an easy 5 minute trip on a gondola to the top. There is a nice restaurant up top with good food and beers. Very relaxing and inspiring.

The ticket for a cable car costs €20.20 (return) and you have to pay for a car park as well, but the views are worth it. You will see both famous castles on the way up and fantastic panoramic views of the area from the...More
