Due to a variety of cultural offers and 1,200km (746mi) of biking routes through one of the most beautiful landscapes of Upper Palatinate, visitors from all Europe enjoy their vacation in the Cham district.
Don’t miss Furth im Wald, the Drachenstadt or City Of Dragons with its popular Drachenstich dragon festival in August.
Besides biking, you will also enjoy hiking up to one of the countless hills and mountains, as well as swimming and boating in one of the lakes and rivers in this district. River cruises may not be offered that much as most of them are too small for this, which doesn’t necessarily mean it’s less exciting.
Either way, Upper Palatinate is a gorgeous region, and this district covers a good part of that. :-)
By the way, there’s a very interesting English brochure about the Cham district (PDF format) available which describes this area in greater detail. Grab it!
