The location is in the Bavarian Bohemian forest area. The town is located about half way up a mountain, the Hohenbogen. Beautiful views of farms or a forest-rich landscape are yours for the hike! The town actually has a border crossing over to the Czech Republic and you avoid the long lines in Furth im Wald. Many of the farmers rent rooms or suites in the summer for vacationing. The area is very picturesque and the people friendly. Eschlkam is part of the Natur Park Oberer Bayerisher Wald, Nature Park of the Bohemian Forest.
