Best of Tegernsee

Explore Lake Tegernsee and Its Mountains

This tour in a nutshell

This private day tour from Munich truly gives you the best of Tegernsee. A mountain river leads us up the slopes from the village of Tegernsee. After a 2 hour ascent, we reach a rocky little summit with a cute chapel where amazing vistas over the mountains of the Mangfallgebirge and the lake await. A short descent brings us to a mountain chalet where we enjoy a well-earned Bavarian lunch. Replenished, we hike back via a panoramic path above the lake that eventually leads us to the shores of lake Tegernsee.

You'll love this rather challenging hiking tour for its natural variety and stories. The nearby mountains were home of the proud Bavarian "Brandner Kaspar" who tricked death by playing cards with him. And you will find out how crafty locals would identify a human skull long before DNA analyses were available.
