Upper Bavaria
Real winter
Exactly our (season) time

Experience the real winter in Upper Bavaria

Winter is often gray and dark, especially in cities. Our bodies don't get enough sun, the outside feels cold and dingy, people rush from one place to another. Upper Bavaria is the place where we can break out of this hamster wheel. Upper Bavaria offers bright spots - winter hiking, cycling, gentle snow activities, a visit to the Christmas market, a museum and, of course, on the slopes. Even away from the snow, we can fill ourselves up with bright spots for the gray season in Upper Bavaria. Just like Frederik the mouse, who talks about the sun, art and stories in winter - Upper Bavaria fills our heads and hearts with bright spots.
