Tegernsee: take a stroll along the lakeside, enjoy the views and stop for a bite to eat in style. Nearly all leisurely athletes enjoy this. And cross-country skiers can do this especially well as there are trails suitable for it. This is especially true for the trail around the Hainzenhöhe near Gmund which offers splendid views. From the start in the hamlet Finsterwald the loipe heads west along the Dürnbach stream, then makes a small detour to Margarethenhof, the beautifully situated golf course, does a loop there and then leads back to Dürnbach. After this it heads left on a circuit around the Hainzenhöhe and then downhill towards Kaltenbrunn on the shores of the lake. There are beautiful views of the whole length of the Tegernsee on this section including the Wallberg in the background. It’s the best postcard picture you’ll get here!
From the cross-country trail to a fine restaurant
Edelwirtshaus der gehobenen Preisklasse. Und das passt ja auch zum Tegernsee.
The route passes by Gut Kaltenbrunn, which is directly on the road between Gmund and Bad Wiessee, on the other side of the road. You can’t find a more beautiful place to stop for a bite to eat than here. Gut Kaltenbrunn is a historical four-sided farm, which previously belonged to the Tegernsee Monastery and the Bavarian King Max Joseph I. and today houses a restaurant, owned by Käfer, the well-known Munich delicatessen empire. A fine guest house with upmarket prices which suits Tegernsee as well.
Whoever hasn’t had enough after the six kilometre long circuit, can add on an additional loop towards Bad Wiessee. On the section along the Dürnbach near Schneiderhäusl not far from the connecting loop towards the golf course there is connecting loop to the golf course circuit. This 8.7 km long trail snakes along the high terrace to the golf course north of Bad Wiessee. And on this section you can also relish the great views of the lake and the opposite shores of the towns, Tegernsee and Rottach-Egern thanks to the predominantly open countryside.
