The hosts around the Tegernsee make the region very appetising. The gastronomy on offer ranges from Bavarian delicacies to haute cuisine. So you can choose between mountain huts, brewpubs and gourmet restaurants, beer gardens with views of the lake and the panoramic restaurant on the Wallberg. It’s up to you.

In winter the family-friendly ski resorts and cross-country trails become the Alpine home for athletes: roughly 250 kilometres of prepared loipen lead from the Kloo-Ascher Tal near Bayrischzell or through the sunny Leitzachtal. In the ski resorts around the Wendelstein or on the Sudelfeld experts, intermediates and free riders can find a challenge to suit them.

During the summer the Markus Wasmeier open-air museum in Schliersee shows old customs and ways of life. From April to October traditional craftsmanship can be seen in the old Bavarian ski legend’s village: wood carving, bread being baked in a wood-fired oven, beer being brewed, and pottery being made.

With its unique location the Alpine region Tegernsee Schliersee provides unforgettable experiences in the lakes and mountains: from a boat on the lakes you’ll get an unrivalled view of the Alpine panorama.

Schliersee: from the shores to the huts
Visitors don’t come to the small and not nearly as overrun brother of the Tegernsee to go swimming. Despite great water quality and pleasant temperatures there are hardly any spots for swimming or sunbathing apart from the nicely located Schliersee lido. The lake is popular as a quieter, more rural starting point for hiking and cycling. Starting directly from the village of Schliersee you can walk up to the Schliersbergalm (1,060m) a hut offering refreshments. You’ll get great views of the lake during the ascent and for anyone who doesn’t like hiking you can always take the cable car up and then race back down into the valley on the summer sledging run.
The Schliersee isn’t inundated with huge crowds of visitors in the summer but at the beginning of winter: the colourful Leonhardifahrt on the first Sunday in November with horses, carriages and bands in traditional costume which proceed from Schliersee along its shores to the Baroque St. Leonhard church which was built in 1651 in Fischhausen.

TEGERNSEE – classy and good

No other lake offers such mundane lidos as well as diverse fun pools on its shores. In Tegernsee, the town, visitors to the “Monte Mare” get their cocktails served in their sun loungers, where they also have their own lakeside sauna. The Point peninsula is very popular with younger visitors with its extra-fine sand and two beach volley ball fields. In Rottach-Egern the “Fahrhütte” restaurant offers their guests their exclusive own beach and afterwards you can fill up on oysters or lobsters.

Spitzingsee: the cool beautiful one

Whoever wants to swim here shouldn’t be a wimp. At roughly 1,100m asl even in summer the water will hardly get any warmer than 18°C. But the scenery at the deep blue mountain lake is a dream. Sporty people race down the hillsides towards the lake all year round: in winter on their skis, in summer on their mountain bikes. The mountain restaurant Obere Firstalm is an especially beautiful stop on the way towards Tegernsee and Schliersee.
