Excursions from Berwang
Fairytale Castles of King Ludwig II of Bavaria
The world-famous Bavarian royal castles Neuschwanstein, Hohenschwangau and Linderhof Castle are just over the border to Germany at a distance of 40 -165 km.
Expedition to the Middle Ages
Explore the castle Ehrenberg in four parts: Klause castle ruins, Ehrenberg Fortress, Schlosskopf Castle and Fort Claudia and its museum.
In 2014, a pedestrian suspension bridge was constructed over the Fernpassstraße B 179 south of Reutte in Tyrol (Austria). At an altitude of 110 m and a span of 403 m, this is a great way to travel between the ruins of Ehrenberg and Fort Claudia.
Swarovski Crystal Worlds in Wattens
Daniel Swarovski founded Swarovski in 1895 in Wattens, Tyrol and today the company is the world’s leading producer of precision-cut crystal.
