Bavarian Alps & Lakes

Duration: 8 Days// Total Distance: appr. 73 km//Altitude Difference: 3240m 2720 m//Difficulty: Difficulty 2

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?


Day 1: Arrival in Bad Tölz
This well-known Bavarian small town is best discovered on a casual stroll: walk for a bit along the river Isar with the Golgotha in full view, then past the spa house into the market road. You can marvel at the beautiful houses whilst taking a break in one of the numerous pavement cafés.

Day 2: Bad Tölz - Bad Wiessee (approx. 18 km - ascent approx. 710 hm - descent approx. 630 hm)
After a short train journey to Lenggries,  you continue along the long-distance walking trail Via Alpina to the Aueralm via the Hirschtal-col below the steep rocks of Mount Fockenstein. Enjoy a descent break with Bavarian Alpine delicacies before you continue through forests and across meadows with a wonderful long-distance view down onto Lake Tegernsee and descend to Bad Wiessee.

Day 3: Round Tour to Mount Riederstein (approx. 9 km - ascent approx. 420 hm - descent approx. 450 hm)
You walk along high-altitude paths with amazing views, to the mountain inn Galaun, then onwards to the little mountain chapel on the rock formation of Mount Riederstein, from where you have a magnificent view down to the lake and onto the surrounding mountains. Once back on the lake the Tegernsee brewery inn invites to a cool beverage, before you return with the Tegernsee-ship to Bad Wiessee.

Day 4: Bad Wiessee - Lake Schliersee (approx. 12 km - ascent approx. 620 hm - descent approx. 570 hm)
From Tegernsee you soon reach alpine pastures via a steep forest trail surrounding the well-known Alpine beer garden Neureuth. After a break with lovely views onto the lake you casually continue your tour to the Gindelalm alp and then you descend along forest paths and forest roads to Lake Schliersees and after the marina you reach the pretty and neat spa park situated directly at the lakeside of Lake Schliersee.

Day 5: Round Tour to Lake Spitzingsee (approx. 13 km - ascent approx. 390 hm - descent approx. 60 hm)
Along the lakeside-adventure-path you get to Fischhausen. Then along the path ‚Bockerlbahnweg’ with numerous info points via the former forest railway, you first walk to the col ‚Spitzingsattel’ and then onwards to the picturesque Lake Spitzingsee. Walk round this nature idyll before you take a break in the historic challet  ‚Wurzhütte’ and then return by bus to Schliersee.

Day 6: Lake Schliersee - Bayrischzell (approx. 15 km - ascent approx. 180 hm - descent approx. 990 hm)
A light and airy cable car ride takes you to the summit station on Mount Taubenstein. Then you walk on a high-altitude path with brilliant views to the Rotwandhaus, where you have the opportunity to climb to the peak of the Rotwand if you fancy. Onwards via the picturesque cirque ‚Großtiefentaler Kessel’ to Lake Soinsee with its idyllic location, then along alpine pastures and flowering meadows to Bayrischzell.

Day 7: Round Trip onto Mount Wendelstein (approx. 6 km - ascent approx. 920 hm - descent approx. 20 hm)
The King-Maximilian-path leads you past a waterfall to the Wendelstein-Alp. From there you walk all the way to the summit with its impressive meteorological observatory and along the 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 casually walk back to Bayrischzell.
