Drachselsried in Bavaria Germany

A popular area for all outdoor activities from summer walks, to winter skiing. Drachselsried is northeast of Munich airport in Bavaria Germany and reached by road in a little over an hour.

Small enough to have a strong sense of community and yet large enough to provide all amenities for both the permanent resident and the holiday second-home owner. Restaurants, open-air and indoor swimming, and renowned glass studios are nearby. Situated in the Nature Park.

This is a website of the village of Drachselsried  in the Nature Park of the Bavarian Forest as seen through the eyes of an Englishman. Please use the contact form, to recommend additional items, links or information about the Bayerischer Wald you would like added to this website. 

Drachselsried, Bayerischer Wald

Die Schönheit des Bayerischen Wald umschliesst den idylische Ort Drachselsried. Eine bevorzugte Gegend sowohl für Wanderungen im Sommer als auch Ski-und Langlauf im Winter.Drachselsried, nord-östlich vom Flughafen München gelegen, kann mit dem Auto in gut einer Stunde erreicht werden.

Es ist klein genug als Gemeinde mit hoher Wohnqualität, bietet aber andererseits alles was man zum täglichen Leben braucht, sowohl für die Einwohner als auch Zweitwohnung-Besitzer. Restaurants, Schwimmbad mit Sauna, renomierte Glasstudios.

Creating an English description of the village has given me and many other people, a view into the special type of lifestyle, that the Bavarian Forest ( Bayerischen Wald) offers. Wonderful people.
