Holiday with the dog make most dog owners like. Directly on the Hopfensee, nestled in the idyllic landscape of the Ostallgäu, is a paradise for people and their two-legged: hop on the lake.
The environment of hops is mainly known to Windows users: in Windows 7, the image of the hopping lake was set as the default background image, thus paving the way for many computer desktops worldwide. The lake invites two- and four-legged friends to splash around and relax but the ascent to the castle ruin Hopfen is worth the effort: from the top, masters and mistresses have a wonderful view – and for the four-legged friend the walk is a real pleasure. A walk around the Hopfensee is a beautiful little hike with about 7 km in length. Everything is flat and barrier-free, this round is also feasible for shaky legs.
In winter, hop on the lake is a great starting point for cross-country skiing: in the village there is a wealth of trails for beginners to professionals. In addition to skiing, holiday guests can also rent sledges for tobogganing.
As a Kneipp and health resort Hopfen am See enjoys great popularity among tourists. With its southern flair, hops are often referred to by the locals as the Riviera of the Allgäu: the picture-book panorama of the Alps and the view of Neuschwanstein Castle do the rest.
