Delve into the history of the Bavarian kings – just a 25-minute drive from the Singer Sporthotel & SPA. The palaces of Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau are among Germany's most popular destinations, each year attracting millions of visitors from around the world. Every September the classical concerts with world-renowned singers and orchestras that are held in the Sängersaal at Neuschwanstein represent a high point in the region's cultural life.

We also recommend a visit to the Museum of the Bavarian Kings in Hohenschwangau, where visitors are given insights into the history of the Wittelsbach family from its beginnings to the present. The focus of the exhibition is on King Maximilian II, who turned Hohenschwangau Castle into a summer residence, and his son, King Ludwig II, the creator of Neuschwanstein Castle.

Linderhof Palace (35 minutes by car)
Linderhof Palace was built in 1870-1886 under the Bavarian King Ludwig II. It is the smallest of the three royal palaces, and the only one that was completed in his lifetime. King Ludwig II often stayed at Linderhof Palace, and it is thought to have been his favourite. Our Relais & Châteaux hotel is adjacent to the Romantic Road, and the drive to the Linderhof Palace takes a mere 35 minutes.

The 'Königsschlösser' combined ticket is valid for six months and entitles the holder to one visit to each of the royal palaces (Linderhof, Herrenchiemsee and Neuschwanstein Castle).

Traditional Alpine village of Fallerschein
The village of Fallerschein lies on the route between Stanzach and Namlos. It is a comfortable 30-40-minute walk from the A-road's turn-off. The road is partially asphalted and therefore suitable for pushchairs.
This charming Alpine village of 40 timber cottages surrounded by lush, steep meadows and rushing streams provides an insight into the old ways of the Tyrol. Two of the cottages serve typical Tyrolean specialities. Above the Fallerscheinstube, visitors will find a hide fitted with a telescope for observing deer and local game. The Alpine village of Fallerschein is just a 15-minute drive from our Relais & Châteaux hotel, and there is ample parking between Stanzach and Namlos.
