The idyllic village of Menzberg lies at 1016 m. above sea level and overwhelms you with a unique 360° panorama. "Menzberg - happy time in the highest village on the Napf" is not an empty promise. Beautifully situated barbecue areas and benches along the hiking trails invite you to linger. Often in the autumn and winter months, the highest village of the Napfberg region towers above the sea of fog.

Beach chairs above the sea of fog

From October to April, a unique visual and auditory experience awaits you at seven specially beautiful vantage points that invite you to linger and relax. In one of the beach chairs, listen to the village stories of Xaver Vogel, which are framed with musical sounds. The beach chairs are an experience in any weather and accessible at any time of day.

Enjoy a fine meal on the beautiful panorama terrace of the Landgasthof Menzberg!
