Pinswang in the Lechtal Valley, a pretty municipality on the eastern banks of the Lech river, is surrounded by lush meadows.
The Via Claudia Augusta, once used by the Romans, led past Pinswang. A section of the road has even survived until today. Built in the 13th century, Schloss Loch castle is well worth a visit and enjoys a fine location high up on the Schwarzenberg mountain. Indeed, the larger region is home to several further castles including the Burgenwelt Ehrenberg with its spectacular 406m hanging bridge known as "highline 179". The famous fairytale-style castles of Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau are just over the border in Bavaria. The 400 inhabitants of Pinswang continue to maintain many centuries-old traditions such as "Scheibenschlagen", a traditional event in Central Europe in which glowing wooden disks are flung from a long hazelnut stick off a mountain side into the valley below. Visitors and residents of Pinswang enjoy an outstanding quality of life thanks to the village's location in the beautiful Reutte Nature Park close to the wetlands of the meandering Lech river.
