Pinswang: an Alpine Village in Tyrol

Pinswang is a lovely alpine village in the northern part of Tyrol in Austria. It lies on the border with Bavaria in Germany and is an excellent starting point for exploring the region.

We stayed here for a week and found it was the perfect place to unwind and enjoy beautiful places in the surrounding nature. One of these places is the River Lech which flows through here. With its clear water a must-visit and a nice place for a relaxing time.

Pinswang is a great location for visiting the famous Neuschwanstein Castle and Hohenschwangau Castle. By car you can reach Schwangau, where the castles are situated, in 15 minutes. It's also possible to use the trail from Pinswang to Schwangau and walk or go by bike. You can find more info about the trail here.

If you're on a holiday with children, the Walderlebniszentrum in Ziegelwies is a recommended visit. It has two adventure paths for children and a treetop path. Not so far from here is the Lechfall and the historic center of Füssen.

From Pinswang it's also a short drive to Highline 179 (15 min) and the ruins of Burgenwelt Ehrenberg. A bit more far (50 min) is the Zugspitze, Germany's highest mountain.

Location: Pinswang, Austria.
