The Inn ferry near Mühldorf am Inn

Mühldorf is around 5 hours by bike from Munich, on a bend in the river formed by the Inn. The so-called Inn ferry has been in existence for around 140 years and the eleven-meter-long boat made of larch wood is one of the last barges on the Inn, with only one other still in operation in Kiefersfelden. The Zille takes visitors and locals from the town center to the local recreation area and vice versa.

The Chiemsee Islands

Lake Chiemsee, also known as the "Bavarian Sea", is the largest and most famous lake in Upper Bavaria. Its two islands - Fraueninsel and Herreninsel - together form Bavaria's smallest municipality. While the uninhabited Herreninsel with the magnificent Herrenchiemsee Castle is enchanting, the Fraueninsel with its small fishing village and monastery is more dreamy and romantic.


These highlights await you along the route

Boat trips on the Salzach

Plätten is the name given to the old salt barges that were once used to transport salt from the salt works to Burghausen. I wonder what it was like to spend days on such a barge back then? Just experience it - not for days - but at least for one trip.

Salty sights

Get to know the most fascinating facets of salt in the Alpine town of Bad Reichenhall and in the salt mine Berchtesgaden . The Old Salt Works in Bad Reichenhall is the only royal salt works in Germany and probably the most beautiful: King Ludwig I of Bavaria himself had it built in 1837.

Salt and moor

7 houses, two themes, one museum: the Salt and Moor Museum is located between Grassau and Rottau in the historic ensemble of buildings known as the Klaushäusl. The story of how the first brine pipeline was built from Reichenhall to Rosenheim is just one of many salt stories that visitors can learn about in the salt museum.

A salt mine in the middle of Munich

How exactly was salt actually mined in the 18th century? You can find out the answer at the Deutsches Museum in Munich. In an expanded demonstration mine, around 400 meters long, visitors can experience almost exactly what it actually looked like in a mine.
