Lake Tegernsee and Mount Wendelstein

Bavaria just like on a picture postcard: majestic mountain tops, deep blue sparkling lakes, idyllic alpine pastures with grazing cattle – and lots more! Discover Bavaria’s most beautiful clichés during a week-long walking tour between Bad Tölz and Bayrischzell. Walk casually on marvelous panorama-paths through picturesque mountain scenery, have breaks along the way in pretty little mountain chalets and enjoy a typical snack (‚Brotzeit’) and a cool big glass of beer. The lakes Tegernsee and Schliersee invite you to a swim, a dip into the refreshing waters of mountain lakes is always welcome on a hot summer’s day. Mountains, lakes and a Bavarian ‚Brotzeit’-snack – is there anything better than that?
