Munich is the capital of Bavaria and home to countless world-famous sights such as the Frauenkirche (the cathedral famous for its two towers), the Viktualienmarkt (the traditional all-year market close to the city center), and the English Garden (one of the largest urban parks in the world). No other city in Germany welcomes as many international tourists every year. Everyone knows its most famous event, the Oktoberfest.
Lake Tegernsee as well as the town of the same name are located only about a 30-minutes drive away from the hotel. The lake is one of the most beautiful lakes in Bavaria and the towns and villages at its shores are a popular haven for Germans and international visitors alike due to the special climate. Tegernsee Abbey is also a great place to visit.
Dating back to 1562, our house itself is a historic sight. However, there are many other great things to see in the area, such as the “Augustinerchorherrenstift” that was built in the 12th century as well as numerous churches in Gothic or Late Baroque style. The fortifications “Fentbach-Schanze” and “Birg” are definitely worth a visit if you are interested in local history. They are relics from the time of the Hungarian invasions
The region is home to a relatively high number of golf courses. You can reach two top-class golf courses within 15 minutes by car: Golf Valley and the Golfclub Mangfallplatz. Take a refreshing break with a long round of golf and enjoy the wonderful view of the nearby Alps.
For guests who would like to go skiing, we recommend Garmisch-Patenkirchen. The world-famous winter sports region at the Zugspitze and some of the skiing areas with the highest chance of snow in the northern part of the Alps are located about a one-hour drive away. Due to the high altitude and the mountain’s special conditions, the skiing season often lasts into the months of spring.
The areas around the large Bavarian lakes are just perfect for long tours by foot or on bike. A network of biking trails provides the basis for lovely bicycle tours across meadows and through forests, past quaint villages and hamlets. Those looking for a biking challenge can find numerous mountain bike and mountaineering tours of all difficulty levels in the close by mountain group, the Wettersteingebirge.
