Live out a fairy tale in Neuschwanstein Castle
First stop: Neuschwanstein Castle. Completed in 1886 the 65,000 square-foot castle is rumored to be the inspiration for the castle in the Disney classic, Cinderella. You’ll spend the afternoon living out your own fairy tale, wandering the halls of this perfectly picturesque mountaintop magic kingdom.
Take on Germany’s highest peak, the Zugspitze
Stop number two is Germany’s highest peak, the Zugspitze. At just under 10,000 feet, get ready to take in views of more than 400 surrounding peaks without breaking a sweat, because you’re rocking the newly innovated Deuter Futura Pro hiking pack with its airy mesh back system. Or maybe because you rode the cable car to the top. Don’t worry. In Germany they don’t consider either to be cheating, according to Backpacker Magazine.
Welcome to the chill zone … putting the "fun" in Funtensee
Following the trend of highest adventures, My Deuter Adventure will take winners to Funtensee, Germany’s highest and coldest lake. What puts the “fun” in Funtensee? Its unique geography situates it amongst the surrounding peaks in a natural chill zone, creating the coldest ever recorded temperatures in Germany, -54 degrees Fahrenheit in winter. In the summer it’s cool and refreshing place to relax after a hard hike up to the Karlingerhaus hut, open year round and accessible only to hikers. Nestled in the Berchtesgaden Alps, the Karlingerhaus hut hike will offer winners a chance to stretch their legs and really test out all their new Deuter gear. Don’t forget to pack the hot chocolate!
A behind-the-scenes tour of Deuter headquarters
Designed according to architectural principles that convey Deuter’s core values, the headquarters of one the world’s oldest outdoor gear brands is bright, open and modern. My Deuter Adventure winners will have the opportunity to chat with designers for a behind-the-scenes look at how the world’s best gear is made.
Let us show you around our own backyard!
Contest is open to entries until June 10.
