Chiemsee alpine region

- Bernau am Chiemsee -

The image of the Chiemsee Alpine region is characterised by impressive Alpine foothills, nature reserves and conservation areas, rivers and lakes, orchards and forests as well as upland moors and marshlands. Herrenchiemsee Palace built by King Ludwig II and the Fraueninsel, a picturesque little gem without the noise of any traffic are particularly charming. The fascinating mountain world of the region can be discovered on various hiking trails and using mountain railways. In addition to the refreshing mountain and sea air, natural remedies such as peat or iodised thermal brine are synonymous with healthy living in the region.

Our excursion tips:

Trip round Lake Chiemsee

Lake Chiemsee – or what is known as the Bavarian Sea – is regarded as a natural treasure of the white/blue state. “Tour me” in Chieming hires out special bikes if you want to cycle around the lake. The buses on the Chiemsee circular route will ensure you get back. Holidaymakers can discover the Herren- and Fraueninsel with the Chiemsee Boat Trip which operates the whole year round and leaves from the Chiemsee waterfront on electric boats hired from Stöffl Boat Hire which provide a special hoist.

Town cult(o)ure

Bavarian charm and cordiality: The lively town of Rosenheim is a popular destination for lovers of art and culture, shopaholics, epicures and conference goers. It is the unusual mix of rural Alpine tradition and southern lifestyle which makes Rosenheim so special. The Lokschuppen Exhibition Centre is one of the most beautiful exhibition areas in Germany. The services offered include audio tours, detailed descriptions of the objects and subtitling of the audiovisual media. A comprehensive programme of educational museum events accompanies the exhibition. The largest event venue of the region is the Rosenheim Culture and Conference Centre which can accommodate up to 1,600 people. Numerous international stars have already given guest performances here and the approximately 400 events which are held here annually reflect every possible type of event: Master concerts, children’s theatre, theatre, musicals, foreign language theatre, rock and pop concerts, conferences, works meetings, Christmas parties and balls.

Feeling good the Bavarian way

Germany’s oldest mountain railway - the Wendelstein cog railway offers an Alpine experience for everybody. Parking spaces for handicapped people are provided in the car park of the cog railway valley station in Brannenburg. A ramp makes it easier for handicapped people to get into the train.  The staff are happy to help you get in and out of the carriage; it is however absolutely essential that a carer/specialist accompanies/helps you. The mountain terrace and the panorama restaurant provide an impressive view of the mountain world. The holidaymaker can then relax and feel good in the “Innsola” leisure pool in Kiefersfelden or in the beneficial thermal spa facilities of the Bad Endorf Chiemgau Thermal Baths, one of the most plentiful sources of iodised brine in Europe with temperatures of 27 to 34 degrees. You can access the swimming pools of the thermal baths by way of flat steps with handrails, via ladders with handrails or a hub lift.
