The Alpine region of the Tegernsee and Schliersee Lakes lies only one hour south of the Bavarian state capital of Munich. The glittering lakes and mountains of the Alpine foothills create fantastic scenery. Openly upheld customs and traditions reflect this region’s unique attitude towards life. If you want to scale the heights, the Wendelstein can offer you wonderful views of the mountain range of the Alps and the green valleys of the surrounding area.
Our excursion tips:
On the Wendelstein
An excursion to one of the most beautiful panoramic mountains of the Alps is a must. Up we go to the Wendelstein, enthroned high above Bayrischzell and the Leitzachtal valley. A trip with the Wendelstein Funicular from Osterhofen near Bayrischzell is something to be experienced. A ramp makes it easier to get into the funicular and the trip alone is an experience in itself. At a height of more than 1,700m, spectacular views which extend to Munich in the north and as far as the Alps in the South await you. Your excursion should of course not omit the opportunity to turn into the large terrace at the summit of the mountain.
Experience the lakes
A hiking trail which is suitable for wheelchair users leads around the picturesque Suttensee Lake above Rottach-Egern. Situated in an idyllic setting at over 1,000m in the midst of high Alpine peaks, Suttensee Lake is an insider tip. If you prefer to travel by bike, the Tegernsee circular trail is just what you are looking for: one lap of the lake with your hand bike takes you to a height of over 20 km – dream-like views and famous sights are all part of the package. If the weather is not playing ball, it is well-worth making a visit to the Bad Wiessee Waterpark which is equipped with a lift which will deposit you safely in the indoor pool. Bath chairs are also provided here upon request.
Culture and enjoyment
Culture and enjoyment in the Alpine region of the Tegernsee and Schliersee Lakes – whether you are sampling schnapps or enjoying a visit to a museum: The Lantenhammer distillery in Hausham produces the finest brandies and fruity liqueurs – here you can experience this skill at first hand in this Distillery of Discovery. You can immerse yourself in the world of distillates, glean a lot of interesting facts about the production process and the flavours or take part in a tasting or tour. Go back in time with historical carriages and sledges in the Museum in the Gsotthaber Farmhouse in Rottach-Egern. Here you can find out all sorts of interesting things about farming customs or professions which have now almost died out such as those practised by saddlers or blacksmiths. After so much culture, you will definitely want some refreshment in Café Gäuwagerl in the museum.
