Walking Bavaria’s Lakes and Mountains

  • Majestic mountains with extensive views
  • Sparkling lakes with swimming opportunities
  • Idyllic flower-filled alpine pastures and grazing animals

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.
