Discover the region

As one of the most beautiful areas in Germany, the Allgäu is a popular destination for tourists from all over the world. In the midst of this breathtaking landscape lies the picturesque village of Durach, which is an ideal destination for all nature lovers and culture enthusiasts.

Geographically, Durach is in a prime location: surrounded by the majestic Alps and idyllic lakes, the region offers an incomparable backdrop. The many hiking trails through meadows and forests invite you to an active holiday, while you can relax with a stroll through the charming villages of the Allgäu.

For those interested in culture, there are numerous sights to discover. Neuschwanstein Castle or Ottobeuren Monastery are just a few examples. Durach itself also has interesting historical buildings such as the parish church of St. Martin or Hohenfreyberg Castle.

Throughout the year, there are also many events that make a visit worthwhile: In summer, for example, the traditional Viehscheid festival attracts visitors with its colourful traditional costume parades and the sale of regional products; in winter, Christmas markets and skiing events provide a contemplative atmosphere under a bright starry sky.

In addition to all these highlights, the culinary side should of course not be neglected: The specialities of the Allgäu, such as cheese spaetzle or the famous Allgäu beer, can be enjoyed in the cosy inns and breweries of the region.

For those who like to be active, Durach offers numerous opportunities for outdoor activities. In summer, the surrounding mountains are perfect for hiking or mountain biking, while in winter you can take your turns on the nearby ski resorts. Water sports such as canoeing or sailing are also possible at the lakes.

Even in rainy weather, there is plenty to discover in Durach: The thermal baths of Bad Wörishofen invite you to relax, while museum visits or cooking classes offer an entertaining alternative.

All in all, it can be said: Durach is definitely worth a trip! Whether as a starting point for active recreation or as a cultural highlight - this charming village in the Upper Allgäu has a lot to offer and should not be missing from any travel list.
