Proximity to the Great Outdoors

All around you are lakes, rivers and mountains – big ones (the Alps!) – and the endless possibilities of hiking, walking and Nordic walking – anything that’s active and restorative because, uniquely, Bavarians prize the purity of their air as much as their beer.

Whenever, wherever, whatever you do, you feel the pull of nature. Don’t resist it - just go with it!
