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.

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.
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.
