One thing for sure about Bavaria is that it never seems to disappoint. No matter where you are exactly within the state, you’ll have a hellava good time. So, Hauzenberg in Lower Bavaria is no exception.
It’s considered to be an air health resort, so first off — you’ll be breathin’ easier. Good thing, you’ll need the lung power to do so serious sightseeing and play just about every sport under the sun.
The historical side of Hauzenberg reads from the pages of a book on the Middle Ages. Many visitors come to see the neo-Gothic St. Vitus Church, a place of worship that’s been in use since the 15th century (St. Simon’s is another pretty cool church and so is the Grace Chapel).
Only Burg Freudensee is older and you’ll probably be thinking about how you’re walking the same streets as the ancient Celts and Romans who called this place home for years.
Castles and churches aren’t the only places to visit around Hauzenberg. This is Bavaria for crying out loud and that can only mean one thing, BEER! There’s a fun brewery museum to see, but there’s also Bavaria’s first liquor museum.
Bavarian beer and “spirits,” can it get any better than that?
I didn’t think so, either. ;-)
However, before imbibing on any adult beverage you might want to get in all your sporting activities first. And you can do just about it all here. Over at Freudensee (Lake Joy), there’s beach volleyball and tennis. While the Rocco Park is great for kids of all ages with skating, biking, and an all around fun playground.
Oh, the kids (or the kid in you ;-) will just love the Hauzenberger Tiermuseum, a museum totally dedicated to animals.
We can’t leave out all the fishing, archery, swimming, and skiing. Yeah, skiing. Hauzenberg doesn’t roll up its sidewalks come wintertime. No, that’s when it opens its ski school!
I told you that you’d have a great time in Hauzenberg — with all this, how could you not? ;-)
