Discover Bavaria's most beautiful lakes and mountains during a week-long self-guided walking tour between Bad Tolz and Bayrischzell, taking you from Lake Tegernsee to Mount Wendelstein. You'll walk on panorama paths through picturesque mountain scenery, and take breaks along the way in pretty little mountain huts where you can enjoy a typical snack ('Brotzeit') and a cool glass of beer. In the valleys lakes Tegernsee and Schliersee are perfect for a dip into the refreshing waters.
Your route follows in parts two long distance walking trails; the Via Alpina that extends from Bavaria to Slovenia and the King Maximilian path that starts at Lake Constance and ends at the Berchtesgaden National Park.
Arrive at your hotel and head out for a stroll along the Isar River before heading out to a local restaurant.
Take the train to Lenggries from where you will walk along the Via Alpina trail to the Aueralm. Enjoy a break with some Bavarian delicacies before continuing through forests and across meadows, offering long distance views onto Lake Tegernsee. Descend to your overnight stop at Bad Wiessee.
Today you can do a round-trip to Mount Riederstein on paths with amazing views. Head first to the mountain inn Galaun and on to the mountain chapel. Return to the lakeshore where the Tegernseer Bräustüberl awaits with its beer garden in the former monastery before taking a boat ride back to Bad Wiessee.
Walk from Lake Tegernsee to Lake Schliersee. Follow a forest path and alpine pastures to the Neureuth beer garden where you can enjoy a break with a view over the lake. Continue to the Gindelalm alp before descending to Lake Schliersee with marina and spa park.
Following the lakeside adventure path you reach Fischhausen. Then follow the former forest railway tracks before heading up to the Spitzingsattel col. Continue to Lake Spitzingsee, a popular swimming and boating lake. Walk round this natural idyll and take a break in the historic Wurzhütte chalet before returning by bus to Schliersee.
Take the cable car to the summit station at Mount Taubenstein. Follow a high altitude path with fabulous views over the Tyrolean Karwendel-mountain range to the Rotwand House, with the option of continuing to the summit of Mount Rotwand. Onwards via the picturesque cirque Großtiefentaler Kessel to Lake Soinsee with its idyllic location, then along alpine pastures and flowering meadows to your overnight stop at Bayrischzell.
Today's walk leads from Bayrischzell up Mount Wendelstein, Bavaria's most popular panoramic mountain! Taking the King-Maximilian-path you pass a waterfall on the way up to the Wendelstein-Alp. Walk to the summit with its impressive meteorological observatory and take the optional panorama-loop-path to the Wendelstein cave with its accessible underground tunnels. After a snack in the panorama-beer garden, you take the cable car back into the valley and walk back to Bayrischzell.
