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.

Hair dryer iconNEARBY:

The Hotel Opera is situated in the Lehel district of Munich, the area has a village feel to it, but is just a 15 minute walk to the main centre of Munich and a 20 minute walk to the Englischer Garten, Munich's huge leafy park.

The hotel has a wonderful Romanesque facade, and the building itself dates back to the 19th century, damaged in the war the building was bought in 1968 by the present owners who took 8 years to painstakingly restore and renovate the building.

Today's hotel is a nice mix of modern and old, with lovely airy rooms and and a relaxing tranquil garden patio. Rooms have all mod cons and some come with balconies, the hotel also owns a couple of superb restaurants close by.

Breakfast is served at your table with a choice of cold meats and cheeses or croissants and fruit and the option to order freshly cooked eggs.
