There is lots to do and see in the nearby area, there are a number of Christmas markets in the area most of which can be reached by bus/train free of charge using out tourist card all guests receive on arrival.There are many historic towns and villages on both sides of the border to visit as well as the Bavarian Forest National Park which links in to the Sumava National Park on the Czech side of the border.

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetThis one of the most unspoilt and interesting areas in Europe, with the Bavarian and Bohemian National Parks on either side of the border, both within a short walk of the house. Both National Parks have very strict environmental protection policies and we support the Bavarian National Parks campaign to extend the area of the Park where nature is left entirely to its own devices.
All guests are requested to separate every item of waste possible into containers provided (including Tetra Packs, batteries etc) which we then take to the recycling center. Vegetable matter is composted for the garden. We have solar panels and all new double glazed windows and insulated roofs. And we emphasize that our tap water is from local springs so there is no need to buy bottled water! We collect rain water to water the garden and flower pots and window boxes. We use low energy light bulbs wherever possible and have water saving taps.
We encourage guests to use the village restaurants and shops and other facilities: museums, a railway station which is the only one in Europe divided between 2 countries, playground and sports facilities. We encourage guests to use public transport every apartment is provided with a local timetable for guests to take away, we provide details of train journeys to more distant places: Passau, Regensburg and Plzen and encourage use of local rover tickets for guests in addition to the free local bus services with the tourist card.
We are fully involved in village events and in future planning for the village. We use village tradesmen whenever possible. We encourage guests to support events of local organisations. We encourage guests to visit both sides of the border and give them lots of information about the history of the area to encourage international understanding. We regularly donate at least a weeks vacation to charitable/campaigning organisations for them to auction to raise funds for their activities.
We support the National Park and have assisted with translations for English speaking guests. We provide information about the two major animal centers within the National Park. Otters and Beavers have been seen in the village just a few years ago and are in the river between BE and Zwiesel. Ermine in the water by the main house, pine martins in the adjoining forest with deer and lynx there but difficult to see. Many varieties of birds including Honey Buzzrd, Jay and Black Redstart.
