Hike trip between Lake Tegernsee and Mount Wendelstein.

Bavaria just like on a picture postcard: majestic mountain tops, deep blue sparkling lakes, idyllic alpine pastures with grazing cattle – and lots more! Discover Bavaria’s most beautiful clichés during a week-long walking tour between Bad Tölz and Bayrischzell. Walk casually on marvellous panorama-paths through picturesque mountain scenery, have breaks along the way in pretty little mountain challets and enjoy a typical snack (‚Brotzeit’) and a cool big glass of beer. The lakes Tegernsee and Schliersee invite you to a swim, a dip into the refeshing waters of mountain lakes is always welcome on a hot summer’s day. Mountains, lakes and a Bavarian ‚Brotzeit’-snack – is there anything better than that in a hike trip?

Character

Easy hike trip with stunning views along walking paths and forest roads. Big differences in heights are tackled by cable car. For the daily tours a good basic fitness level is required, since walking times vary between 3 and 5 hours. When possible, there are also more challenging routes on offer, which will lead you even higher up into the mountain areas.
