How many parents often dream about getting away from the kids? Maybe ship them off to their grandparents or camp, then pick an adult-only place to enjoy some peace & quiet?
Funny thing is, you won’t find yourself adding Loßburg to that “adults only” vacation destination.
This ain’t Hedonism, ya know.
And I’m implying that if you’re traveling to Loßburg without the little ones that you wouldn’t enjoy it. It’s just that the town is exceptionally family friendly, so the kids will have a grand time of it.
There are a number of adventures for adults and kids alike, maybe you should consider staying at a local farm. A good deal of them have many programs to teach children about animals and agriculture.
I think the kids will enjoy the Adventure Tours, that offer everything from nature programs to buggy rides. Chances are, they’ll just love swimming in Loßburg’s indoor and outdoor pools (the outdoor one has a 44-meter long waterslide) too.
Winter is also a really fun time to come. There’s downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, and a 140-meter long toboggan track. And the Vogteiturm (a 31-meter high observation tower) has the most wonderful views no matter the season.
Oh yeah, speaking of Lake Kinzig, did you know there’s a spot where you can drink right from the source? No? Well, you do now — and no bottled spring water tastes so delicious. ;-)
To engage your mind, Loßburg has a Local History Museum (open Wed. 2pm-430pm & Sun. 2pm-5pm), and castle ruins (the castle was built in the 13th century).
For something a bit more spiritual, Loßburg sits along the Jakobsweg; or the Way of St. James — a religious route that leads to Santiago de Compostela in Spain.
Hmm, I thought all roads led to Rome. Guess I was wrong. ;-)
I do know that I’m glad that at least one road led to Loßburg.
