Explore Spiegelau Freyung-Grafenau Region Lower Bavaria Germany, Tourism, Travel Guide
"Spiegel" means in German mirror. Many villages in the Bavarian Forest are famous for its glass makers.
In former times Spiegelau was well known for glass used for mirrors.
Today the glass makers show you how glass can be used for art work.
Please do not miss a visit to one of the work shops and watch a team of professionals.
The picture below shows one of these companies. They even have an factory outlet where you can by souvenirs.
Spiegelau is one of the major destinations of tourists in the Bavarian Forest even when it has only a population of approximately 4500 people.
We hope that you will love it here too. We experienced a warm hospitality by the local people and we are not looking for hustle and bustle but for nature and to relax. For that reason we also loved Newfoundland-Labrador so much.
Glass making can be an art
- many thanks to "Konrad Lackerbeck" and Wikipedia
Outdoor activities in summer and in winter are always an attraction around Spiegelau
Use the installed link below to watch the video which gives you an excellent impression what to expect and ideas for your holidays here in the Bavarian Forest where parts are not any longer touched by human activities.
Did you know that you can see bears, wolves, lynxes, beavers, bisons and prey in the national park? Just ask in a tourist office where to go.
All the bears are kept safely away from you but they are living in a natural environment - at least when we were there.
Trenck and his "Panduren" ransacked
also Spiegelau in the 18th century. They were brought lots of misery to many places and I consider these mercenaries as a bunch of murderers and bandits if things which I read about Trenck are true.
Empress Maria Theresia from Austria ordered them to do all this terrible things as vanguards.
At that time people were running away from Trenck, today he is a tourist attraction which hopefully this brings some of the money back which he had stolen.
I installed a link to a video about this event in Spiegelau. Naturally this event is lots of fun with food, drinks and music.
Enjoy a good meal here and ask for a special Schnapps which is typical for the Bavarian Forest. It is called "Bärwurz". One of my Canadian neighbors almost faded out when I gave him a glass to try. He said it is worse than jet fuel. I never tried jet fuel but I like my "Bärwurz".
