TEGERNSEE VALLEY

Happy moments have a home!

If there is a place in the world where things are still the way they should be, then it is in the Tegernsee valley. Here cattle graze on lush green meadows under the blue and white sky by one of the cleanest lakes in Bavaria. Here traditions are maintained and traditional costumes worn with pride. This is where there is much to celebrate and plenty to do all year round. And this is where people really appreciate the good and honest. Whether from person to person or hand- and homemade.

Perfectly happy in winter

When the snow makes a crunching sound with every step. When you pull your bobble hat further down into your face and your hands deeper into your pockets. When ice crystals glitter in the sun and the landscape is dipped in bright white ... that is when it is winter at the lake. It is time for sporty skiing into the valley, for delving into Spa bliss or for wonderful moments at the gluhwein stand during the magic of advent at the Tegernsee.

  • Skiing and snowboarding in the skiing area Spitzingsee Tegernsee
  • Over 100 km of cross-country ski trails in and around the Tegernsee valley
  • Sledding on one of the longest natural toboggan runs in Germany

Give everything. Get everything.

Black, red or blue? Which slope would you prefer when the skiing fever hits you?

It is hard to sit still when you know that roughly 35 slopes and over 150 km of cross-country ski runs are waiting for you. With guaranteed snow in the mountains from December to April, of course.

Whether on skis or on boards – the winter at Lake Tegernsee leaves no wishes unfulfilled. Whether alpine or Nordic, whether beginner or professional, whether on a sunny day, or in the floodlit night... the pleasures of snow know no bounds. And all those who wish to watch the pros can be picked up at the hotel and brought directly to the respective locations.

The longest winter toboggan run in Germany at Wallberg is also certainly worth a visit. 6.5 km in length and about 30 minutes from start to finish ensure tobogganing fun for the whole family. And the Wallbergbahn cable car makes it easy to get up the mountain - for your next winter fun ski run.

  • SPRING AWAKENING

    The first warm days. The sun brings a pleasant feeling to the skin. A foretaste of the approaching summer brings feelings of true happiness. Spring is here and it seems as though the lake and its people come to life again. We are all drawn out into the open to see how nature comes alive again.

  • Summer fun

    Which blue would you prefer? Sky blue, Caribbean turquoise or deep blue? In the summer, the lake welcomes you with almost all possible blue tones. With lush green pastures, a white-blue picture book sky and a wonderful feeling that promises everything: hot days by the cooling lake and mild nights in the beer garden at the legendary, hearty forest festivals or at one of the many lake parties. Where, if not here can you see the perfect side of summer?

  • Blaze of colour in the autumn

    There it is again – that special light when the sun's rays light up the trees in autumn, as if each leaf were a small light. When the wonderful landscape is transformed into a natural paradise, embodying nature’s colours in perfection. When the cow bells can be heard from the cattle drive and when the sun warms, but no longer scorches – that is when every hour, every minute and every second in nature has a special quality which is so very worthwhile.
