Nature lovers come here all year round to walk the narrow paths across the rolling hills, passing old farmhouses and country roads lined with gnarled trees. Cows, goats and even llamas graze placidly in the fragrant pastures, delighting young and old alike. On a farm holiday in Gmund, you’ll be treated like part of the family – even by the tame animals in the meadows.

And Gmund has plenty more to offer. It’s an ideal place for hikers and mountain bikers to start multi-day trips, including one of the gentler trails across the Alps to Sterzing and the famous long-distance cycle routes from Lake Constance to Lake Königssee and from Munich to Venice.
