We followed the advise of our walking companions to the "Schwellhäusl" where I had enjoyed the beer garden and Elizabeth all the animals and cake with coffee and found a great accommodation here in Bayrisch-Eisenstein.
Bayrisch Eisenstein is a small village with a little bit more than one thousand inhabitants. This means that you will still find the original Bavarian way of life here.
The surrounding nature is the main attraction and now after the iron curtain does not exist any longer the relationship between The Czech Republic and Germany has dramatically improved. Bayrisch Eisenstein is a border town.
Today you can cross this border without any controls. You must not even stop any longer.
There was none of the local events going on when we stayed in this lovely village. Maybe you have more luck. It is always fun and good food and beer are part of it. Don't stay away! Make a video and publish it on YouTube.
Tradition is still alive in Bayrisch Eisenstein

Visit the local "Localbahnmuseum Bayerisch Eisenstein". That is museum which shows artifacts related to steam powered locomotives and related items. Find out the schedule of trip with such a train.
If you love hiking you will find here an extraordinary environment with the unspoiled forest, clean lakes and mountains. They are small compared to those of the Alps but still challenging.
A mountain with the name "der große Arber" is very close. It is the highest mountain in the Bavarian Forest. (1,455.5 m) As you can see it was used during the cold war to control the air traffic of the Warshaw Pact, Despite the radomes the mountain is still a tourist attraction in winter for skiers and also in summer. You can use lifts if you have problems walking but I do not have the details. Ask for the way to a little chapel.
Join a guided hiking tour to have company and to experience local gourmet food.
There is also a mountain called the "Kleine Arber" - which is already located in the district Upper Palatinate.
At the end of this page I gave installed two links to videos. One shows you more about the area around the Arber, the other one gives you an impression of the railway museum.

If you want to see how wonderful glass souvenirs are still produced following old traditions you must ask. I forgot and things may have changed.
Winter sport is very popular in the Bavarian Forest and eventually it is less expensive here than in Upper Bavaria or Swabia. We never did it anywhere and you must compare using the Internet. Consider also Thuringia with the famous Thuringian Forest and others.
As you already learned we prefer the summer season. But even we would find ways to have fun and a good time during winter in the Bavarian Forest. To be in a nice spa, to visit a local Christkindl Market and celebrate Christmas or to watch or participate in one of the many events which take place during this season and certainly the nature will be always the main attraction.
You can still find your own slope.
