Across the Bavarian Lakeland to Mount Zugspitze

Pure hiking bliss awaits you during your holiday between the Bavarian capital Munich and the Olympic town of Garmisch. During the first part of the holiday there is water in all shapes and forms to marvel at: the blue Isar river, waterfalls, gurgling streams and the imposing Bavarian lake scenery, with the renowned Lake Starnberger See leading the way. Lake Kochelsee framed by mountains, where the lakeside gives you a marvellous hiking experience. Lake Kochelsee leads you into the splendid mountain region around Garmisch, which offers everything that defines a great hiking region: impressive mountain backdrops, high-altitude hiking tours with leisurely cable car rides as well as alpen huts offering hearty Bavarian specialities.

Tour character:

The first part of your hiking week leads you leisurely on just slightly hilly terrain through the Alpine foothills. Inbetween a day of rest lures with an option to walk around the lake before you are headed for the mountains towards Garmisch. As a finale enjoy two hiking tours with alps and splendid mountain panorama. All in all a hiking holiday full of enjoyment, with daily walking times of 5 hours maximum, whereas with both days in the mountains you always have a choice between an easier and a more athletic option
