A child-led tour of Füssen in Bavaria
Füssen lies in the Allgäu region of Bavaria in Germany. The town is famous for its mountain lakes, the Alps and castles including Neuschwanstein, which has been featured in a number of films. Philipp is 12-years-old and is a member of a traditional dancing and cultural group. He dresses in lederhosen and dances traditional German dances. His family own a concrete factory and their business depends on the mountains for the mined stone. The area has many lakes and fast running rivers that help power the local hydroelectric plants. There are about 14 plants in the Füssen area alone, with a further 1400 located throughout Bavaria. Lots of tourists come to ski in the winter and paraglide in the summer.
