Musau

Due to its location, Musau is a perfect starting point for a hike to the Bavarian castles Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau.

Altitude: 821 m a.s.l.

In the north of Reutte there is the small municipality of Musau, which consists of eight component localities. Its ancient name "Muosowe" derives from the Old High German "muessa", meaning marshy land. In former times, the St. Magnus Monastery of Füssen had the sovereign rights.

At Musau there have been two outworks of the Ehrenberg Castle, which today is venue for the widely known Ehrenberg Castle Ensemble. It is a special experience for families, including an adventure museum, child-oriented exhibitions, and the world's second longest swing pedestrian bridge, called "highline179". An insight into the life of knights and aristocrats in Middle Ages!

Furthermore, the village is a paradise for those who would like to spend active holidays. Among the wide range of outdoor activities there are the Ranzental Vils Cycle Route, the 9 km long MTB trail Raintalweg, which leads past the Musau, Otto-Mayr and Füssener Mountain Huts, and the hiking path between Reutte and Lake Frauensee. In winter, the Musau Circuit, a 5 km long cross-country ski trail snaking its way through a fairytale winter landscape, opens in Musau.
