Coat of arms Pfronten

Pfronten in the Allgäu- many thanks to "Markus Drexelius" and Wikipedia

Pfronten is very close to Nesselwang. It's difficult to decide where to stay. But without question you should see them both.
Everywhere in and around Pfronten you will see people in action.
Wether nicely dressed skaters, bikers, families walking with their kids or children playing mini golf.
We had only been here during summer and enjoyed it.
But Pfronten attracts also people during winter.
It is not surprising that many winter sport activists stay in Pfronten for  two or three weeks to indulge their hobby.
The surrounding mountains, many ski lifts, cable cars, cross country ski trails make it easy for them to find the right and suitable spot.

Winter scene

Watch out for mountain climbers.
In the evening you will find them in the cozy restaurants or in the spa or in a sauna.
If the weather is not nice you easily can entertain yourself a whole day in the "Alpenbad" (spa). You can play squash or just take a day off from all the activities and read, sleep, watch TV.
Check out local events and important - enjoy what you are doing - even when you do nothing. It is never boring.

The Breitenberg - many thanks to "Kauk0r" and Wikipedia

I don't understand why people are get excited climbing up rocks using ropes and all kind of equipment.
Obviously the need the challenge and love to look down to see how nice it is on the ground.
My father loved to do that to, but he failed to convince me to appreciate his hobby.
Most of the mountains can be reached also in a much less dangerous way.

The "Kurpark"
Pfronten skaters
However, I still had dreams of trying para-gliding and to learn what to do and what not to do. After my last accident in Canada I buried these dreams.
Now I only watch them what is also enjoyable.
The clean air and the scenery attract people from all over the world.
On certain days you can listen to concerts in the park. But it's also nice just to sit and to watch the birds, the squirrels and even the people. What an atmosphere for reading.
After our trips through Thuringia we got addicted to real spas which offer various pools, a sauna and much more. Certainly we would spend today at least several hours in "Alpenbad Pfronten".
When we were leaving Pfronten Elizabeth told me that she did not want to go home to Zorneding. She said we should live here.
Now she is happy again in Canada where she can take good care of her 90 year old mom.

Pfronten is very close to Austria. There is not any longer a border. Enlarge above Google Map or ask for directions to find the ruins of the former castle Falkenstein.
These ruins are the highest located ones which you can find in Germany.
The famous King Ludwig II had plans to replace the ruins by a new castle. However, financial problems and his sudden death made this project obsolete.
We enjoyed some refreshments in the hotel which is close by.
