Furth im Wald is an old town in the Cham district and located within the Bavarian Forest in Germany. With its 26 square-miles (76 square-kilometers) surrounded by forested mountain ranges and traversed by several rivers, the city is an ideal holiday destination offering plenty of tranquility, nature, and fresh air to its visitors.

The most popular time to visit Furth im Wald is in August when it celebrates its Drachenstich (Dragon Slaying) festival dating back to 1590. This oldest German folk tradition, which presents a procession of dragons, a play, a kids’ play, as well as concerts, has given the city the nickname of Drachenstadt (Dragon City).

Tourists arriving during the festivities will have to book their accommodations well in advance. Budget-travelers can find a hostel in Furth im Wald as well as in nearby Waldmünchen. Both of these cities also provide camp grounds. Since hostel bed availability may be a problem, visitors should consider other economical options, including guesthouses and vacation rentals. Both apartments and houses can be rented in Furth im Wald as well as in cities close by, such as Waldmünchen and Neukirchen. These rentals are very affordable, per person costing the equivalent to or less than a hostel bed, particularly if shared among several travelers.

Once you are all settled into your choice of accommodation, you can go sightseeing and exploring. There is a public pool with a slide, ideal for families with younger children. Kids will also enjoy taking a guided tour through the scary underground labyrinth, the Further Fälsengänge. Couples may wish to take a romantic ride on a horse-drawn carriage to the Dragon Hole (Drachenhöhle); it is the latest home of the infamous dragon, albeit a high-tech, robotic version. Nature enthusiasts will enjoy a stop at the Dragon Lake (Drachensee), a respite from the hustle and bustle of the town and an opportunity for walking, biking as well as sailing.
