About Silke Rehman

I fell in love with this tranquil house by the biggest lake in the area and with direct views to the castle. It's such a beautiful place to re-charge your batteries and be inspired by the impressive unspoiled nature, culture (castles, music) great food and traditional architecture all around. Always worth a trip. We love helping our guests have a fabulous stay here.

Why Silke Rehman chose Horn

Looking for the most beautiful places to live in worldwide I found this idyllic and undiscovered romantic corner at the border of Germany/Austria. The Romans, Celts and German Kings were attracted to this area. Stunning Neuschwanstein castle inspired Walt Disney to invent Cinderella castle and attracts more than 1M visitors every year. Astonishingly the region is still a secret to most Brits. This place offers everything: castles within a 3 mile radius. 5 lakes to swim, sail, canoe and windsurf during the hot summers. Fabulous skiing slopes during the sunny winters. Romantic Christmas markets and NY Eve's fireworks. Outdoor sports: horse riding, paragliding, hiking, cycling, golf, tennis. Excellent restaurants and cafes - great variety of life.

What makes this apartment unique

Sunny, spacious and luxurious with direct panorama view of famous castle Neuschwanstein & Alps, only 5 minutes from the lake in a calm, idyllic setting, yet within walking distance to the village centre & Fuessen town, 2 min from your first restaurant.

Equipped with every luxury such as leather massage chairs for a daily massage, luxury bathrooms, full kitchens incl. dish washer, a multimedia entertainment system and a washing machine in the apartment or accessible. The location of the house is very peaceful surrounded by meadows, trees, the lake and the mountains with the castles. Cycling tracks start right by the house. Even the Nordic skiing tracks are close and the first ski lifts are only 5 minutes away.

Everybody in the family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Schwangau; it was a lovely, clean apartment and we found it an excellent base for all our trips out.

The view from the balcony is fantastic!

Within a 5-10 minute walk you will reach the first beach/lake.


Most international flights will arrive at Munich airport (150km from us). From there you are best off hiring a car and driving down (about 1.5 hours).

You could also arrive at Memmingen airport (75km from us) and drive down the A7 from there (45 minutes).


Birkeneck Luxury Apartments have stunning views of Neuschanstein castle, are an oasis of calm yet central in Schwangau and only 2 miles away from Füssen town's medieval centre and its cobble-stoned pedestrian zone. It's 3 miles from the border to Austria and 1.5 hours to Munich. Walking distance to restaurants, spa, lake, castles, local village and even the next town.
