Nestled in the south-eastern part of Germany, in the region of Bavaria, discover the small town of Tegernsee
About 53km from the city of Munich, Tegernsee is located on the shore of Lake Tegern.

Start your stay and enter into a communion with nature by visiting Lake Tegern. Here you can take very relaxing walks and above all admire the calm and beautiful green landscape of the lake and the surroundings of Tegernsee. The hills, the vegetation and the blue of the lake are a real postcard landscape.
If you visit the lake in summer, you can swim and cool off. 

In Tegernsee, there are various types of hikes available. Indeed, you can walk on the hiking trails near the lake as mentioned above, starting with the Neureuth hike, which in summer and winter is magical.
There are also boat trips and even hot air balloon rides. You can even take a hot air balloon ride over the lake to see a beautiful sunset.

Again, whether in winter with its snow-capped mountains and hills or in summer with its lush green forests, Tegernsee is one of the most picturesque towns in Bavaria. 

After a tour of the lake, you can go to BadWiessee, a community not far from Tegernsee. Situated at 750m above sea level, the small town offers a panoramic view of the landscape.
