Great Winter Sport & Xmas markets in Dec: Not only will you find beautiful skiing slopes all around (4 ski areas with plenty of slopes), there are also short as well as up to 5 kilometres long toboggan runs. You can rent a toboggan at the mountain hut/station.
Another popular winter activity is snow shoe hiking and ice-skating, ice hockey playing or simply walking on ice on one of the 6 lakes around us.
The Christmas market in the historic market town of Fuessen (lovely 20 min walk from Birkeneck along the river Lech) is taking place on the first and third weekend of December. The smaller culinary Christmas market of Schwangau village will take place on the first Sunday in December with many more musical events throughout the season.

Two beautiful golf courses within a 20 minutes drive.

Fabulous skiing. There are ten skiing areas around us. The closest slopes are right in our village, only 5 minutes from the house: Tegelberg wintersport arena. You will find 4 lifts and even more slopes, some of which are flood lit for night skiing and articifically snowed upon to allow skiing even when mother nature doesn't provide the perfect conditions.

                                We really enjoyed our stay at Birkeneck Luxury Apartment. It was a nice drive from Frankfurt and once we got there it was a fabulous getaway from the city life. You can arrive without knowing anything about the area and Silke and Kalim will give you all of the information you need. They had made dinner reservations for us for our first night and the restaurant was really great and just a short walk from the hotel. We weren’t really sure what we wanted to do on our trip, but we let our hosts know what types of things we enjoyed and they provided us with so many options and detailed information about the area. The apartment itself was really beautiful; modern and open, and cozy at the same time. The small town of Schwangau is charming and we actually found it easier to communicate in English there than almost any other city we have visited in Germany so far. Everyone seems like they really want you to have a great stay. We got to experience so much in our 4 nights there, but we were also left wanting more. We will definitely be coming back.

We have been expats for 15 years ourselves and will do everything we can to help you discover and enjoy this most beautiful part of Bavaria/ Neuschwanstein Castle region. Silke and Kalim

                                Birkeneck Haus is a great place to stay in Schwangau! The location of the apartment is wonderful. Views of castle and mountains amazing! Plus it is very quiet to sleep and very well equipped for living for a few days. Clean. Well maintained. We stayed a week. The place delivers the experience promised in the ad very well. Cornelia is an excellent host and very responsive to our questions. I will recommend this place to friends. The area is worth staying a while in. Brenda and Bruce Vancouver, Canada

                                We just wanted to say we had the best time ever on holiday at your beautiful home. I cannot stress enough how beautiful the home, the area and the people were. The pictures do not do the home or the area justice, it is much much prettier. The house location could not have been better for us. Perfect holiday, 11 out of 10, Thank you very much

                                Eine sehr empfehlenswerte gemütliche gut ausgestattete Ferienwohnung mit einem wunderschönen Blick auf die Schlösser. Die Ferienwohnung ist gut ausgestattet und schön sauber. Die Übergabe und die dabei erhaltenen Tipps für Ausflüge und Restaurationen waren hervorragend, genau, wie die nette Abwicklung durch die freundliche Vermieterin. Für den Aufenthalt mit unser kleinen Familie war die Wohnung perfekt und ist wirklich empfehlenswert.

                                dear Silke, would recommend the appartment highly. the views were incredible from all windows; but the view from the living area was breathtaking. had a wonderful week in Schwangau, loved the opera house,bit dissapointed at how short the tour was of the castles..... but we had a seven day view... so hey-ho!!!! lovely eating houses for lunch times. the tourist office staff were extemely friendly.... as was everyone that we spoke to...... but none moreso than yor neighbour; an axtremely pleasant person who was so helpful to both my husband and myself. a big thankyou to her again. so many beautiful walks. lucky enough to visit st. mangs monastery during a musical recital. just loved everything about the appartment.. and thankyou for allowing us to stay. love from sallie-anne xx

                                We enjoyed our stay with you enormously and will return in 2011 if all goes well. Your "luxury apartment" is unique and is a credit to you for all your planning and attention to detail to satisfy the most difficult traveller. Louise and I have always been individual travellers and are quite fussy about where we stay. In 33 years as individual travellers to 5 continents we have never stayed in an apartment as good as yours. You have fitted it out brilliantly with every modern convenience travellers could wish for to make them feel that they are at home. We loved the space , the comfort , and the light ------ nothing is cramped. The view of course is unique , and to see Ludwig's Castle through the morning mists and lit up at night is a scene that you never get tired of checking just to make certain it is still there. You have covered the "little things" that a traveller cherishes---plenty of wardrobe and hanger space and an abundance of coathangers. You have created an oasis of peace and tranquility surrounded by a multitude of things to do and places to go that most travellers never see or have the chance to find. Classic walks, Mountains to climb or to ride the Finicular to the top, views so good that even a camera cannot do justice to them , lakes to canoe on or swim in and excellent restaurants that offer both a variety of international and local cuisine . You are surrounded by History and although many people come to Fussen/Schwangau we never felt crowded or confined. Travellers after a long day seeing the sights sometimes don't wish to cook themselves an evening meal nor do they wish to have to travel far to find a restaurant. You are fortunate to have Hotel Steiger only 150 metres away which has an excellent table and wine list and where you can see Fussen Castle and snow capped mountains from the dining room. I can't speak highly enough of your property and of your help . We will return soon

                                The accomodations are beautiful ! View is fabulous. You couldn't have been better hosts. We had a great time - we wish we could stay longer. We will most definitely recommend it to friends.

                                Birkeneck Luxury Holiday Apartment far exceeded our expectations. Located in the lovely village of Schwangau, the apartment is a true gem in a great location, close to many outdoor activities, including: mountain walks; cycling; hand gliding; white water rafting; canoeing etc. The upper floor apartment, recently converted using local materials is finished to a very high standard and you will not be disappointed with the quality fit-out. The views of the mountains and Neuschwanstien castle are a real bonus. The owners are very welcoming and nothing is too much trouble for them in making your stay comfortable. They speak German and English, have excellent local knowledge and are keen to share their experiences and recommend everything from restaurants to the best mountain walks. With so much to see and do in the local area this is a really is a hidden gem of an apartment in one of Europes best kept secrets of a location. We are returning again this summer - our first repeat holiday ever.

                                What a fantastic family holiday! All the ingredients for what my family loves. Great winter sports, great natural beauty all around and so accessible from Munich. We were absolutely thrilled with the Mountain top chalets the fairy tale castles and the friendly people in general. The flat (Birkeneck Holiday Apartment) was very attractive,extremely modern, comfortable and private – it’s impecably maintained and cosy with all the mod cons we needed. There are plenty of fabulous places to eat within close walking distance but it is also good to be able to have a simple home meal when we were tired out from days outdoors or on the slopes. Our hosts were charming and interesting and very helpful with suggestions of what we might enjoy and how to get there. Importantly for us, though they got the balance right with being there to help but letting us enjoy our privacy. Highlights: The kids ski-ing lessons, watching the reindeer at feeding time and the simply marvellous food and hospitality to be had all around. We really didn’t stay long enough to do the area justice and we will definitely be back! Thanks Silke and Kalim – and be careful, that massage chair would have left on the plane with us if it had fit in a suitcase – my husband fell in love with it! Gillian from Dubai - December 2009
