Bischofsmais is the destination of many winter vacationers. I can't provide more details because we are not winter sport fanatics and have never been during winter.
But we enjoyed our visit in summer.
Bischofsmais is a little village with a population of around 3000 in the Bavarian Forest.
For us the surrounding nature was the main attraction. So we walked and did not take advantage of the other offered activities.

We are not golfers, Elizabeth is a little bit afraid of horses so no horseback riding on ponies and her biking is some kind of scary to me. But she loves it!
Younger people may have fun on mountain bikes in the so called "Bikepark". There are many videos about this park available on Internet.

The "Teufelstisch" - many thanks to "Dr. Hagen Graebner" and Wikipedia
I still remember this rock which is called the "Teufelstisch" which means "devils table". We got some directions to find it and it was a relatively short walk and we had a beautiful sight from there to the ruins of a castle and the town of Regen.
As I learned, the name comes from a saga. When the devil came to this place he became very hungry but did not have a table with him. For that reason he built one by picking up rocks. Then he used his magic power to put food on this table. Suddenly church bells were ringing and the devil had to escape.
Lower Bavaria is mostly Catholic and it is not a surprise that we found so many pilgrimage churches in many places. Bischofsmais was not exception.
The below shown church was built to honor the holy Hermann Josef who lived between 1150 and 1241. We did not enter this church and if you want to learn more about it please check the Internet. We found it during our sightseeing tour to the "devils table".
