I'm visiting a family friend in Passau, Germany in early March and would like to spend a day or two (?) seeing the park - will any light hiking be possible? I'm not sure how much snow will be there or what the weather is like. Also, any suggestions on where to stay that has close access to the park?
According to a Bavaria tourist site, the annual Round-up in which all the cattle of Schonau that have been feeding in the park return home is on 3 October. Can anyone confirm that this is happening this year (2012) on that date?
Tickets to fly to Munich from US are 1/3 cost in mid April rather than June-will I typically be able to travel most places, such as up to the Eagl'e Nest?
