Zwieseler Fink competition and underground caverns, Rauhnächte and culture present a living picture of the ‘glass town’ in the Bavarian Forest.
The underground caverns are a particular speciality in Zwiesel. A visit is an exciting experience. In the darkness of the Rauhnaechte, people placate witches, demons and bad spirits. Today there are associations and groups which dress up to re-enact these and other traditional events. An exciting journey into the history of the Bavarian Forest.
Culture and art: nowhere else in the Bavarian Forest gives them so much importance. Zwieseler Fink, Zwieseler Buntspecht and other cultural events entice you into a world of colourful local traditions.
Decorated churches and chapels invite you to seek refuge from daily life and find peace. Museums and exhibitions demonstrate the creativity which has existed in the region for centuries.
