Holidays in the Bavarian Forest

Active holidays in Bavaria - a fountain of youth and life in any season

Embedded between the Osser and Arber mountains, our little hotel with holiday house is located in the health resort Lam in the middle of wonderful mountain forests. The sunny and protected location makes Lam a holiday paradise in the Bavarian forest for hikers and those looking for relaxation.

Magically beautiful hiking paths for hikes and Nordic Walking tours start right by the building.

Adventurous mountain-bike tours through the Lamer Winkel are particularly recommended. A playground for children is located in the spa garden behind the house.

How about an adventure hike with subsequent meal or a night hike with witches' fire and stick bread? Get a closer look at the wonderful landscape in a romantic coach ride.

Many excursion targets, such as the Silberberg, the Großer Arber, the National Park Bavarian Forest, the wood whittler and glass artisan workshops are in direct proximity. The cultural cities of Passau, Straubing, Regensburg and Munich invite to memorable day trips. In the adjacent Czech Republic, there are the spas of Marienbad, Karlsbad, Franzenbad and the town of Krummau (Unesco cultural heritage) among the special sights.

Be comfortable from the first moment. We want you to feel at home here. We will gladly help you plan your holiday.

Our advice: Every Tuesday, we invite to a welcome day with plenty of advice around your holiday in our 3-star hotel in the Bavarian Forest.

Discover the Bavarian Forest by bike or mountain bike!

There are several well-marked bicycle and mountain bike routes around Lam in the Bavarian Forest. They range from less exhausting bicycle tours around the holiday community of Lam to exhausting mountain bike tours of several hours.

The region between the Arber and Brotjacklriegl, Hirschenstein and Dreisessel is a challenge to athletic bicycle hikers. The right transmission helps cover the climbs, which are sometimes considerable.

If you have not brought along your own mountain bike for your holiday in Lam, you may use our bicycles for rent in town.

Enjoy pure sports and fun - and the white beer and hearty snack to follow will be even tastier!
