2016 Broadband for Drachselsried

Installing the broadband cable

Broadband (breitband)cable to Blachendorf and Oberried

In partnership with the Bavarian Government, the Drachselsried area is upgrading the local Internet cable to super fast broadband, or Breitband. This should be completed and in operation by the end of the year. Resulting in download speeds between 30Mbits – 50Mbits, and uploads speeds 2.7Mits – 10Mbits.

The installation of glass fibre cables for the high speed  Internet Broadband is under way. This cable extends from Drachselsried to Blachendorf and Oberried.

Getting Broadband ready



Existing users will still be able to access the Internet with DSL, a new cable will provide VDSL-DSLAM. This means to access the Internet connection a new router will be needed. The FritzBox 7490 is recommended, there are international language versions available.


An insider confirms that when the system is fully operational, towards the end of 2016, a free Hotspot at the local Information centre will be available.

Winter snow has arrived

Finally it is here

Drachselsried Dorfplatz covered in snowIf you click on “View” in the top menu bar you will see a photograph that was taken on Sunday 17th January 2016, plenty of  snow. One of the nice things about a Blog is that local information and images can be shown to a great number of people. As Drachselsried is situated in the Nature park of the Bavarian Forest it is a major centre for summer and winter vacations and is home to a growing number of international residents. It has a wonderful climate and most amenities needed for a good lifestyle. You can see what the village has to offer from my local map.

Snow in Drachselsried

The weather is expected to turn colder with temperatures down to -13C. The village has a special machine for producing cross country ski tracks and will be busy the next few days preparing the “Loipe” Other villages do the same, so there are many kilometres of prepared tracks for the daily visitors and hotel guests to enjoy. The downhill ski area on Arber with ski lifts is in full operation, and is only a few kilometers away.
