Grän is a little village near Lake Haldensee in the beautiful Tannheimer valley.
Altitude: 1,134 m asl
The municipality of Grän, comprising an area of about 20 sqkm, is located in the beautiful Tannheimer valley, which is considered to be “the most beautiful high mountain valley of Europe”. Cultural highlights in the little village are two altarpieces: the piece of art in the Aloisius chapel illustrates Saint Aloisius worshipping baby Jesus, whereas the altarpiece in the Jacob’s chapel pictures Saint Jacob von Minor.
Moreover Grän offers various leisure time activities, both in summer and winter! In summer you can enjoy bathing in Lake Haldensee, surrounded by a great mountain scenery. Don’t forget your camera! Sports enthusiasts can enjoy playing volleyball, while others can sit back and relax in the “Cindarella Castle”, a wellness area of 3,500 sqm (open by appointment). Grän and surroundings also offer different nordic-walking routes and various possibilities for walking and cycling.
In winter Lake Haldensee offers ideal conditions for ice skating and curling, on request also floodlit. On the sunny side of the Tannheimer valley, there is the skiing area Füssener Jöchl, guaranteeing action-packed days on 9 km of ski slopes. 13 km of ski slopes are available in the neighbouring Nesselwängle skiing area. Seven toboggan runs in the valley complete the offer for active winter holidays.
Our recommendation: worth a visit is the alpine cheese factory Biedermann, where you can see traditional methods of cheesemaking!
