It takes you only 20 minutes and then you can see Neuschwaanstein castle and neighboring lake from the top of the mountain. Lovely hike that doesn't take too much time!

Unexpected hike when a gentleman on the road suggested that we head up the small path on our way back from Lechfall and Treetops walkway. We had no waters and insufficient footwear, but the views were worth the steep hike.

We climbed up the back along a steep woodland trail so the good views came on us suddenly. There were some good pictures and chapels both at the top and on the way down. I particularly liked the tunnel underneath the Calvary building.

Easy and accessible hike from fussen, signs are well placed and frequent, and the view is amazing especially during early morning hours.

Last week I hiked the Kalvarienberg even with snow. It was sometimes a bit icy, though the view was definately worth it. It is possible to get there from Füssen via the waterval, however I did not do this (unfortunately). I hiked also via the Schwansee/Alpsee to the village of Hohenschwangau. The paths are really well marked and actually this hike was one of the highlights of my trip; so much solitude to experience eventhough it can be touristic around Neuschwanstein! If you want to do this hike from the Hohenschwangau village; follow the signs to Alpenrosenweg/Schwansee, and than towards Füssen (suddenly there are also signs Kalvarienberg, follow those than). This hike takes around 3 hours if you want to take you pace and make photographs/enjoy the nature! It is not hard, but just take your time to enjoy, so the described hike is NOT 1,5 hours as indicated on the signs!
