Schwangau is a small village on the shores of a pleasant lake. But what everyone is interested in is the other direction in the foothills of the Alps and clearly visible from the most of the hotels.
The choice here is whether to stay in Schwangau, up nearer the castles in the hamlet of Hohenschwangau, or maybe in the nearby town of Füssen.
The hotels chosen are mainly from the four-star and three-star categories and some of them have online booking facilities through our travel fulfilment partner Booking.com. You can check availability at those particular hotels by clicking on the button under the hotel.
Or alternatively take a look at some of the top-rated accommodation of all types in Schwangau:
Memmingen Airport is the nearest option for visitors to Schwangau, while the next closest is actually across the border in neighbouring Austria at Innsbruck.
Distance to Memmingen Airport: 82km
Distance to Innsbruck Airport: 109km
Distance to Friedrichshafen Airport: 125km
Distance to Munich Airport: 155km
Innsbruck Airport is worth a first look as both scheduled and charter flights go in and out of the airport on many days of the week. The closest, Memmingen, is a hub for low-cost carriers and some German internal flights.
Schwangau doesn't have its own railway station. The closest train station is at Füssen, a short four-kilometre bus or taxi ride away.
