After the Christmas and Carnival (February half-term) holidays when the queues are shorter or even non-existent during the week the Upper Bavarian ski resorts entice you with attractive offers to really relax and slow down. The Alpine countryside around Bad Tölz, the Chiemgau, Chiemsee-Alpenland, Garmisch-Partenkirchen and the Alpine region Tegernsee-Schliersee as well as the Berchtesgadener Land offer any winter sports enthusiasts whether young or old, beginner or professional the right slopes for skiing in the sun.
It’s even more relaxing on the slopes if you leave the car at home. All ski resorts on the edge of the Upper Bavarian Alps are easily accessible by train or bus from Munich. And you can also leave your heavy equipment at home as skis, poles and snowboards as well as the right boots can be hired from local ski hire shops or ski schools. Whoever wants to learn how to turn perfectly should use the professionally qualified ski instructors who generally come with a lot of Upper Bavarian humour as well. In the Upper Bavarian Alpine countryside boarders and skiers can look forward to attractive prices and really well-prepared slopes.
After skiing in the sun you can enjoy the additional sunny hours of the days getting longer in one of the many family-run huts, the panoramic views of the surrounding mountains are naturally included. The Hindenburg hut in Reit im Winkl, the Speckalm in Sudelfeld, the ski resort next to Bayrischzell, the Kreuzalm in the classic ski area of Garmisch-Partenkirchen and many other mountain huts have large terraces with sun loungers. Even down in the valley the first beer gardens are open and entice you to enjoy the sun with a beer and local delicacies. But don’t forget your sun cream with a high sun-protection factor and your sunglasses!
