Schwandorf is located some 230 miles (370 kilometers) from Berlin, the national capital.
Consider using Schwandorf as a base for further explorations. This sought-after tourism region has been endowed with numerous interesting sights and attractions. If you are after more things to see and do, check out the Amberg Congress Centrum and Kurfuerstenbad - Amberg in and around Amberg, which you'll find 14 miles (23 kilometers) to the southeast of Schwandorf.
About 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the south of Schwandorf is Regensburg, a regional city where you go see Reichstag Museum, St. Emmerams Abbey and Scots Monastery (Schottenkirche). Regensburg has much to offer visitors keen to hang around a little longer. Bismarckplatz, Danube Mall and University of Regensburg are some of the other points of interest you won't want to miss.
If the weather makes you want to stay indoors, plan to spend some of your time in Bavaria's theaters, nature museums and history museums. If you're on the lookout for things to see that won't break the bank, take a tour of Bavaria's popular gardens.
Get outside and make the most of the local adventure options in Bavaria. Try your hand at mountain climbing or give rock climbing a spin. When it gets cold, spend time in the Schwandorf area. Pull on your woollens and have a go at the cold weather sports on offer here. Try skiing or snowboarding.
As your adventures here draw to a close, spend your last euros on last-minute keepsakes and bid a fond Tschüss (farewell) to the local characters you have met and the special places you have seen.
