  Bavarian Forest
by MichaelFalk1969

This mountain area in south-eastern Bavaria close to the Czech Border is great for hiking in every season. Some of the most popular hikes go up to the Rachel, Arber, and Lusen Mountain. These hikes are not to difficult even in winter and also do-able for families with kids, great panoramic views in fine weather. Other attractions in the area include a treetop walk and a wildlife park ("Tierfreigelände") with animals from northern and central Europe. Good bases for exploring the Bavarian Forest are Grafenau and Spiegelau. The local tourist informations can provide you with detailed hiking maps.
