Explore Freyung Freyung-Grafenau Region Lower Bavaria Germany, Tourism, Travel Guide
Freyung is not any longer what it was hundreds of years ago - a place where nobody had to pay taxes. Especially in Bavaria everybody is speaking and proud of traditions all the time and than they forget about things like that!
Already in medieval times Freyung was a trade center. Salt was one of the most important products.
The past did not only bring prosperity to this town but also lots of mischief, such as the plaque and looting by "Freiherr von Trenck" and his "Panduren". This bunch of robbers and criminals was a serious threat for this area in the 18th century.
Freyung - many thanks to "Woidbua" and Wikipedia
Freyung is nicely located in the Bavarian Forest. It is called the gate to the "Nationalpark Bayrischer Wald" (National Park Bavarian Forest).
It is also close to the border to the Czech Republic. Please check with your rental car company before you want to go there, some did not allow that. Don't blame Germany for that - I made a similar experience in the USA when I tried to visit Mexico.
The "Buchberger Leite" - many thanks to "JNM" and Wikipedia
The "Buchberger Leite" is located in the east of Freyung and a hiking path guides you directly from Freyung to this natural wonder. Please carry a dictionary with you when you want to read some of the information.
Exciting nature in winter
Elizabeth loves outdoor activities. Especially when it is not cold. She was always wondering in Germany about people who were walking using those canes. She realized very soon that those people were not handicapped because even children used them.
They are not canes but poles and this kind of walking is called "Nordic Walking" which is very popular in many European countries.
Trying this in Welland would put you on the first page of the local newspaper. Later when we visited Thuringia Elizabeth even got a brief lesson. She learned very fast to coordinate her legs with movements of her arms.
For your information I installed at the end link to a video in the English language about "Nordic Walking".
If you are interested visit in Freyung the "Nordic Fitness Sports Park" and participate in a free lesson. Have fun and ask somebody to take a video from your first attempts. The following two pictures show those from Elizabeth in Thuringia.
Schloss Wolfstein in Freyung - many thanks to "Konrad Lackerbeck" and Wikipedia
We were amazed what this little town of roughly 7000 inhabitants had to offer. And I know we have missed certain things in the short time which had available. Our intention was to get only an overview about Lower Bavaria that we cab plan real vacations and know her to go next year.
We did not have a chance to visit the gallery in above castle. They offer also many events. Concerts - from classical music to jazz and theater. Who expects so much culture here?
Good clean air, and the beauty of the unspoiled nature. are the attractions of Freyung and it surroundings offer for tourists at any season. Many amenities have been established to make your stay never boring, indoor and outdoor pools, tennis courts, shooting ranges, an ice arena, ski slopes, cross country ski trails, walking trails, horseback riding, horse drawn coach rides, cure center, museums, exhibitions and local events will keep you busy.
We recommend that you visit the museum in the "Schramlhaus" which shows not only artifacts of the past but also in detailed miniature scenes how life was at this time.
