Maps and trails
Wiggensbach is idyllically situated between the mountains of the Allgäu and offers a breathtaking landscape with lush green meadows and clear lakes. The region is known for its pure air quality and picturesque hiking trails through the mountains. It is definitely worth a visit!

Tourist attractions include Neuschwanstein Castle, which is only 40 minutes away, and the nearby Lake Constance. Culture enthusiasts can look forward to the annual music festival or visit one of the many museums such as the Farmhouse Museum in Wolfegg.

Culinary Wiggensbach has a lot to offer - try local specialities such as Kässpatzen or enjoy a fresh beer from one of the local breweries.

The best outdoor activities are hiking in summer or skiing in winter at one of the surrounding ski areas such as the Grünten or the Fellhorn-Kanzelwand area. Mountain biking along the numerous trails is also very popular with tourists.

If it rains, we recommend a trip to the thermal baths in Nesselwang or visit a traditional alpine hut for a cosy time in bad weather.

Wiggensbach is at its best during spring when the landscape is in full bloom and during winter with snow-covered mountain peaks.

Overall, Wiggensbach offers a variety of activities for every traveller. This guide is designed to help you make the most of your stay!
