Our excursion tips
Tip 1: Climbing forest St. Englmar
Ready for adventure? Then the Climbing Forest St. Englmar is just the thing for you and your family. At the foot of the Bavarian Forest, eight fun-parcours with a total length of 1.2 km are waiting for you. With 65 different elements, the adventure park offers a whole range of possibilities for every climbing enthusiast.

Depending on which parcours you want to conquer, the climbing height varies between one and 11 metres. Plenty of action and excitement is guaranteed for the whole family.
Tip 2: Waldwipfelweg
Experience the forest from a completely different perspective. At the Waldwipfelweg St. Englmar, the approximately 1 km long pathway leads past magnificent views of the Bavarian Forest, the Danube Valley and the Gäuboden. While the impressive panorama excites the grown-ups, the children conquer the forest tower. Eight climbing elements lead up to the top of the 32 m high tower.
A further attraction at the Waldwipfelweg is the “Haus am Kopf”. The upside-down house plays tricks on our perception and is the perfect location for fun holiday pics.

Feedback from our guests
Visited here with a small family for a few days (November 2023). We really liked the house from the first impression. Great welcome and good introduction to the hot tube, which of course we heated up right away. Of course the sauna was also in use straight away. The bread roll service also worked without any problems. We were very satisfied with the service and offer that was offered all around. We will definitely come back because our dog was allowed to live in the house! Big praise and see you again
Beautiful accommodations with space for a whole group or even 2 families with children. Highlights include the sauna and hot pot for heating yourself. It is an advantage if you bring a small ax and, if necessary, grill lighter. Supermarket is nearby. A good base for all kinds of activities.
Super clean and really nice location of the houses. Great and nice reception! There are many excursion possibilities in the area with children. Morning bread service, what more could you ask for? At the beginning of December it was a small task to find an open restaurant in town, but the operator of the houses can't help it... but the local Edeka also offers great take-away food :-) Own sauna, own whirlpool complete the offer. We would like to come back!
Beautiful houses. One or two little things in the house could be improved. A mirror and one or two additional shelves would be great. Sauna and hot tube in the house, very pleasant.
They are really great houses and the whirlpool is a real highlight! Wolfgang is super nice and is available to give advice and support. The chalets are suitable for families but also group trips. Thanks for the nice days!
