Discover the country and its people in the Lower Bavarian spa triangle
Excursions in the region around Bad Füssing
Bad Füssing - much more than a spa town
It has long since shed its spa and thermal bath character and is blossoming in new splendour. In addition to the historic town centre with its picturesque charm, there are many fascinating things to see. How about the Amber Museum and its unique collection of sculptures and gemstones made from fossil resin? Or the Leonhardi Museum with its interesting art exhibits: Paintings, graphics and sculptures?
Another hotspot is the three-river city of Passau – just a few kilometres from Bad Füssing. An excursion that is particularly worthwhile for culture lovers. Stroll through the picturesque old town with its romantic alleyways, explore St Stephen’s Cathedral with the largest cathedral organ in the world or the Bishop’s Residence as well as many attractive museums.
You shouldn’t miss out on the most famous Marian pilgrimage site in Germany! Altötting impresses above all with its Chapel of Grace with the Black Mother of God – a Bavarian national shrine in Gothic style. The Basilica of St Anne and the baroque Chapel Square are also well worth a visit, as are the treasury with its pilgrimage museum and the incense factory.
Look over into the Innviertel region
The neighbouring Innviertel region also offers attractive adventure gems: Trade fairs and exhibitions, festivities, concerts, music and sporting events as well as special culinary delights and traditional events. You absolutely must try typical specialities such as Innviertler Surspeck and the famous beers. We recommend 3 spotlights: Reichersberg Augustinian Monastery, Obernberg Eagle Observatory, Silent Night Chapel
