Spending a holiday in a busy city such as Zürich means wasting valuable time each day travelling to and from the surrounding Swiss countryside. But when you take your family to Rimbach you're at the heart of the majestic Bavarian Forest National Park, the most impressive unspoiled landscape in Europe. There are so many activities your family can enjoy in the unpolluted fresh air as you explore this unique landscape. It's perfect for a holiday at any time of the year and even if the weather's not very inviting, there are so many imaginative games and activities your children will never be bored.
The village of Rimbach is sheltered by the mountainous peaks of the Hoher Bozen and offers many relaxing nature trails to explore. You can enjoy helping your children identify the wild creatures who live in the forest. There are song birds, grouse, deer and elk and they might even catch a glimpse of the shy but beautiful lynx. Near the river Regen or the incredible Rißloch waterfall there are beavers and otters. Everyone in the family can enjoy walking, cycling or accompanied pony treks along nature trails such as the Goldsteig. Wherever you look there are wonderful views including the Gläuboden plain and the Danube. In the winter the Hohen Bozen mountains are ideal for skiing holidays.
The region around Rimbach has many unique attractions. A great favourite with adults and children is the St Engelmas Forest Walk. It includes the Cave of Illusions and a collection of kangaroos, llamas and sheep you can help to feed. There's also an adventure playground. The Tree Top Walk at Neuschönau is not to be missed. An elevated walkway takes you up amongst the tree tops where you can look out across the forest. The picturesque ruins of the ancient Lichtenegger Castle provides an atmospheric setting for open-air theatre performances designed for children as well as adults. The region hosts many traditional festivals such as the Pfingstritt, a glass blowing centre and mediaeval carvings at the church near Rimbach,
Staying indoors at the Ulrichshof is a welcome treat. Your children can have enormous fun playing imaginative games with new friends in a specially-designed play castle and witch's house. There's also a ball pit for them to wade through, a bouncy castle and a trampoline where they can wear off some energy. You'll have fun accompanying them in the bumper car arena or take them to watch a popular film in the purpose-built cinema. Supervision is provided for your children if you want to enjoy some time relaxing in the spa or Finnish sauna. The healthy well-being theme is continued at mealtimes where there's a range of delicious, organically-grown local food. For a relaxing holiday that combines fresh air, exercise and hours of fun, visit the beautiful region of Rimbach in the Bavarian National Park.
