Dramatic Sunset at Mt. Säuling by Füssen

Pyramid-shaped, the striking Säuling towers up at 2047 m as the western cornerstone of the Ammergau Alps. The mountain is located on the German-Austrian border and is one of the landmarks of the region and Füssen’s local mountain. At its feet lie the two castles of Hohenschwangau and Neuschwanstein.

The Säuling already served as a landmark for the Romans on the way from Augsburg to the Fern Pass. In the 19th century, the royal family around Maximilian II often made excursions to this mountain.
