Alpine Village Explorer

Traditional Village and Bavaria's Rolling Hills

This tour in a nutshell

The train from Munich takes us along parts of the German Alpine Road to this circuit hike in the region of Bayrischzell. This short but endearing hike leads us on a rugged little path (a certain surefootedness is required!) across bridges, past waterfalls and rockpools to a favourite local joint with great views of the classic rolling hills of Bavaria. 


If you're up for it, a Kneipp facility awaits you for some hydrotherapy on the way back. These facilities are typical of the region and treading ice-cold mountain water in this little knee-deep pool will leave you feeling as if you never hiked a single metre.


Refreshed, we take a short tour through the lovely village of Bayrischzell with its ancient houses nestled at the foot of the famous Wendelstein mountain (among other stories you will learn how the mountains got their names). Last optional highlight of our day trip: a brief visit to what Munich Wanderland founder Stefanie thinks is the best pastry shop in southern Bavaria (we cannot help going back every time …).
