Relaxing in the Isar Valley

The Isar Valley stretches from the city gates of Munich to the Alps and leaves nothing to be desired for all nature-loving recreation seekers. In the upper Isar valley, the landscape around the river is particularly wild and impressive.

Valley & the Mangfalltal

Valley, the small municipality in the north of the Tegernsee Schliersee Alpine region and the Mangfalltal valley have some very special highlights in store and impress with their diversity. Monks are said to have settled in the Mangfalltal in the past and also chose the name for the river. The river was initially called "The Manifold" due to its constantly changing shape and the many faces of the watercourse, which later gave rise to the abbreviation "Mangfall".

Flaucher - the open-air summer domicile of Munich residents

The Flaucher is familiar to all Munich residents and stands for sunbathing, feet in the water - simply summer at its best. Sports enthusiasts also enjoy this popular section of the Isar. Whether jogging, cycling or simply strolling along the Isar with the kids, a day trip to the Flaucher is like a short vacation in the middle of the city for Munich residents.

Caribbean flair and the most beautiful movie set on Lake Walchensee

Sometimes you have to rub your eyes when you see photos of Lake Walchensee. Is this really in Upper Bavaria - not the Caribbean? The color of the water is reminiscent of the Caribbean Sea, but the imposing Alps surrounding the lake make it clear: this magnificent Alpine lake is "dahoam" in Upper Bavaria.

The Partnachklamm gorge - experience wild nature up close

The unbridled power of the water and the wild beauty of Upper Bavaria's nature can be clearly felt in the Partnachklamm gorge near Garmisch Partenkirchen. The narrow but well-secured path leads through the gorge between thundering water and mighty rock faces.

The Kuhfluchtwasserfälle waterfalls in Farchant

With the best view of Germany's highest mountain - the Zugspitze - you will find the impressive Kuhfluchtwasserfälle waterfalls.

The Rose Island in Lake Starnberg

Rose Island is located in the middle of beautiful Lake Starnberg. It's not just the name that's fairytale-like - the small, pretty island is home to a magnificent park and gardens, where the island's main attraction, the so-called "Casino", is located. No, you can't win money here, but you can have romantic moments: The small castle with the name "Casino" is regularly used for wedding ceremonies and can also be visited by visitors to the island.

Cool off in the moor lake

Not everyone knows the Barmsee in the district of Garmisch-Partenkirchen - an insider tip, so to speak, which you can explore wonderfully by bike. The small lake is surrounded by high mountains and measures just 500 by 1100 meters. Its water quality has been excellent for several years.

Paper art from Lake Tegernsee

From Grund - to the whole world: "Passionate papermakers" work at the handmade paper mill in Gmund. The story began in 1829, when Johann Nepomuk founded the paper company with a royal license from King Ludwig of Bavaria. The first paper was made in a wooden trough - the so-called vat.

Buchheim Museum - The Museum of the Imagination

Located to the north of Bernried, on the shores of Lake Starnberg, the museum boasts a uniquely beautiful location even before you visit the exhibition. Under the roof of the museum, the famous Expressionist collection of paintings, watercolors, drawings and prints takes center stage.
Bad Tölz

The historic market street and the Calvary in Bad Tölz

Its particularly attractive house facades, some with neo-Gothic influences and gabled facades in Alpine style, make Marktstraße so popular with visitors. At any time of day or year, it is a pleasant stroll through the cobbled Marktstraße and the small alleyways and streets that branch off from it. Another cultural highlight in the truest sense of the word is the Calvary. There are several baroque buildings on this hill in the town of Bad Tölz.

The famous ski jump in Garmisch-Partenkirchen

Back in 1923, a ski jumping hill was built at the foot of the Gudiberg in Garmisch-Partenkirchen for the Olympic Games. In 2007, the ski jump was completely modernized and now has a 100-metre inrun tower 62 metres above the ground. These dizzying heights promise pure thrills!

Heaven on earth - the Wieskirche

Every year, around one million visitors make a pilgrimage to the world-famous Wieskirche, which has since been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The pilgrimage church in the Pfaffenwinkel region of Upper Bavaria is magnificent and magnificent. The name Wieskirche is actually the short form of "Zum gegeißelten Heiland auf der Wies", whose history dates back to 1738.

Sunny Landsberg am Lech

It is not only the beautiful and well-preserved old town of Landsberg am Lech and the Lech steps that attract many visitors to the Upper Bavarian town. No, it is also the fact that Landsberg is one of the sunniest towns in Germany.

The Fürstenfeldbruck monastery grounds and the monastery church of St. Maria

The history of the monastery dates back to 1263, when Cistercians from Adlersbach founded the monastery. In the centuries that followed, the monastery buildings were constantly rebuilt and extended.

Mittenwald Violin Making Museum

The market town of Mittenwald in the district of Garmisch has been associated with the making of violins for centuries. As early as 1685, Mathias Kloz brought the art of violin making to his home town of Mittenwald and established the making of the instrument.

Experience the history of Werdfelser Land

The former Roman trade route Via Raetia - now Ludwigstraße - connected Augsburg and Venice more than 2000 years ago. There is still plenty to discover today on the lively Ludwigstraße in the Partenkirchen district and in the alleyways that branch off from it.

The birthplace of the "Radlermass" - the Kugler Alm

Founded by Franz Xaver Kugler, the Kugler Alm was one of Munich's most popular inns in the 1920s. As cycling became increasingly popular with Munich residents, the business-minded landlord had a cycle path specially built to the Kugler Alm. With resounding success - more thirsty cyclists came to the Kugler Alm than there was beer in the cellar and so the landlord had to dilute his beer with lemonade - the Radlermaß was born!

On the trail of Falkor and co. at the Bavaria Film Studios
