East Bavaria, with its Bavarian Forest, Upper Palatinate Forest, Bavarian Jura, Bavarian Golf and Spa Country as well as its towns, offers a great deal of variety for visitors in a charming region full of nature and culture.


East Bavaria's four touristic regions The Bavarian Forest: The “Green Roof of Europe” Here in the largest forest landscape in Central Europe, you can experience pure nature with clear streams and lakes, and breathe in the purest air that has ever been measured in Germany. An old-growth forest is situated in Germany's Bavarian Forest National Park along the border to the Czech Republic; a natural world, completely untouched by humans. It is Germany's oldest national park. This is the biggest nature conservation project in Central Europe along with the neighbouring Sumava National Park in the Czech Republic. The treetop path in the national park is the longest in the world, with a total length of 1300 m. The view over the treetops in the Bavarian Forest is simply spectacular, and in clear weather it is possible to see the Alps in the distance, over 150 km away. The Bavarian Forest has a glass tradition that goes back more than 700 years. Numerous glassworks and glass museums invite you to take a look around, and perhaps indulge in a spot of shopping! Hiking, cycling, canoeing and skiing, as well as snowshoeing in the winter, are the most popular recreational and sporting activities. Families with children can also get their money's worth with several summer toboggan runs and the “Haus auf dem Kopf” (Upside- Down House), an entire house that is completely topsy turvy and confuses your senses. 1 2 Haus auf dem Kopf (Upside-Down House): 3 The Crystal Road: 6
