The Wieskirche - "Pilgrimage Church of the Scourged Savior on the Wies" is located in the Wies district of Steingaden.
The history of the church goes back to pilgrimages to venerate the statue of the "Scourged Savior", which was made in the Steingaden monastery in 1730. Eight years later, a farmer's wife discovered alleged drops in the eyes of the statue. This so-called "miracle of tears" and further pilgrimages in honor of the "image of the Savior" gave rise to the construction of a field chapel and the magnificently furnished Wieskirche in rococo style in 1745. the church was declared a World Heritage Site in 1983 and attracts around 1 million visitors every year.
Pilgrimage church of St. Coloman
At the foot of the mountains in an open field stands the baroque pilgrimage church of St. Coloman near Schwangau. The chapel was built in the 17th century in honor of St. Coloman. It is said that St. Coloman stopped at this very spot in the 11th century on his pilgrimage to Israel.
Traditionally, the so-called "Coloman Ride" takes place every year in October, followed by the consecration of the horses. Here you can see hundreds of elaborately decorated horses and riders.
Former Benedictine monastery of St. Mang
Below the High Castle is the former Benedictine monastery of St. Mang with the church of the same name. It was founded by the missionary Magnus in the 8th century.
Today it houses the town library, parish and town administration, as well as the Füssen town museum. Weddings and concerts take place in the Kaisersaal.
One of the highlights is the Füssen Dance of Death in the baroque Anna Chapel.
With its countless winding alleyways, the old town of Füssen is just perfect for a stroll. It is not for nothing that it is often called the "northernmost town in Italy". With many small hidden cafés and boutiques, there is something to discover everywhere.
The historic old town with all its well-preserved buildings, fountains and churches is reminiscent of medieval times and brings history back to life. In addition to coffee, cake and ice cream, you can also choose between German-Bavarian, Mediterranean and Asian cuisine.
And best of all: our hostel is right in the middle of it all. In the heart of the city, so to speak.
You can also experience history in the town museum.
There you can find out about the more than 800-year history of the town of Füssen.

Tobogganing is a safe winter activity - outside the towns and villages, but also just as good inside the town on the snow-covered slopes. Tobogganing is always a great family outing and is part of every winter vacation. And sledging below Neuschwanstein Castle is something special!
For many holidaymakers and locals alike, there is nothing better than a winter walk up to a mountain hut on a sledge.
After a leisurely stop for a hot chocolate and a yeast dumpling, you can then sledge down the cleared tracks. The Saloberalm, the Buchenbergalm, the Drehhütte, the Bleckenau, the Hündleskopfhütte and the Vilser Alm are ideally suited for such tobogganing fun.
You will definitely find tobogganing fun on the longest natural toboggan run on the Alpspitze in Nesselwang. With a length of 4,000 meters, the natural toboggan run at the Alpspitzbahn in Nesselwang is a fast-paced wonder of curves for ultimate tobogganing and provides a little adrenaline rush.
