Known colloquially in Germany as the Queralpenstraße, this holiday road is not only one of the most scenic routes in all of Germany but also the oldest of its kind. The route winds exclusively through the Bavarian Alps and passes by some of Germany's most famous natural and manmade landmarks. Below is a list of sights that are bound to lure you on a wondrous journey along this world-famous Alpine roadway.


Lindau

Lindau is an island-town located on Lake Constance. It is the capital of the Lindau constituency. Records have it that it was a monk from St. Gallen who gave the town its name. With its location, surrounded by waters of the Constance, it makes for a perfect location for adventure activities like sailing, hiking and even camping, bikes can be hired here as well.

Bodensee

Lake Constance is perhaps one of the most famous lakes found in the German Alps. During the ice age, the Rhine Glacier melted, creating the lake that visitors can explore today. The lake's deep blue waters reach a depth of 252 meters (827 feet), while the length of the lake spans an impressive 63 kilometers (39 miles), making it one of the largest lakes in Europe. Steamboats can take visitors on a tour of the lake, passing islands, towns, and coves along the way.

Schloss Hohenschwangau

Standing out amid the dense verdure of Bavaria, the imposing facade of the Hohenschwangau Castle looks nothing short of a castle from fairytale. Located on Alpseestraße, the Hohenschwangau Castle can be dated back to the 19th Century. Built by Maximilian II of Bavaria, the castle was home to King Ludwig II when he was a child. The architecture and interiors of the castle are simply spectacular. The castle is open to public visitation throughout the year and also offers guided tours in several languages. The castle is one of the prime tourist attractions in the city. The Schloss Hohenschwangau is also one of the few castles in the country that remained unscathed during both World War I and World War II.

Schloss Linderhof

The Linderhof Palace, nestled in the western corner of Ettal, is the smallest castle to have been constructed by King Ludwig II. The tour of the palace gives visitors a glimpse into the opulent life that King Ludwig II led. From various chambers, dining rooms, grottos and the King's favorite Hall of Mirrors, the ornate castle and its breathtaking expanse gives an up and close peek into the royal life. In winter when the castle is covered in snow, it resembles a spectacular, magical snowglobe. While the castle is the smallest in size among all three palaces commissioned by King Ludwig II, it is also one of the most beautiful and exquisite royal complexes.

Scheidegger Wasserfälle

18 km östlich von Lindau liegt dieser romantische Höhenkurort (804 m), der einst zu St. Gallen, dann zu Österreich und schließlich zu Bayern gehörte.

Mitten im Naturschutzgebiet gelegen lassen sich für dieses Naturspektakel v. a. die Kleinen begeistern, sind doch auch ein Spielplatz und ein Tiergehege angegliedert.
