King Max II had a hunting lodge here, and the fairytale King Ludwig II was also there, of course. A truly royal place at 1564 meters!
The Pürschlinghaus is an adventure regardless summer or winter : in winter cult as a starting point for one of the most spectacular natural slopes of the Alps, in summer an uplifting place high above Graswangtal.
