Trips on the historic railroads invite you to marvel at the fairytale forest areas and lakes. The region is known for mining. In this context, some caves and mines can be explored. Pure culture is offered by countless castles and palaces as well as historic half-timbered towns. Fantastic hiking and biking trails or a visit to the tree suspension railroad also allow sporty visitors to get their money’s worth.
