Wanderlust in the Bavarian Forest

In spring, nature already presents itself in all its splendour: flowering meadows and rushing streams set hikers’ pulses racing. In summer, the landscape around our hotel in Bodenmais is characterised by lush greenery, and the meadows and forests are full of life. When the leaves change colour in autumn, and the golden light hits the treetops, you wish time would stand still. But with the first snowfall, we are thrilled anew and spend the winter skiing and having snowball fights.

Yes, in Bodenmais, nature is enchanting at any time of year, and there are all kinds of things to do. We have collected some hiking excursions for you here.
