Lake Tegernsee has a long tradition of healing. The first pilgrims came some 500 years ago to experience the curative powers of St. Quirinus’ oil. In the 19th century, the nobility regularly visited Wildbad Kreuth for spa treatments and, at the beginning of the 20th century, the most concentrated iodine sulphur spring in Germany was discovered in Bad Wiessee, and has been used for medicinal purposes since then.
Regeneration and Expert knowledge
Til today the Tegernsee Valley is the perfect place to wind down, not only because of the crystal-clear lake but also thanks to various partners devoted to physical and spiritual health. If you’re looking for regeneration or enhanced self-awareness, you’ll find wonderful ways to achieve it here: saunas with a view of the lake, massages, customized health packages and the Mizu Onsen Spa.
If you’re recovering from illness or injury, you can also benefit from lake Tegernsee’s renowned experts, clinics and health facilities.
Get active and stay fit
The Tegernsee region’s bioclimate is literally a breath of fresh air. There are plenty of opportunities to get active and stay fit. As a partner region of the German Ski Association (DSV), Tegernsee Valley has an extensive network of trails for all ages and abilities. Besides a recent international study (the Jungbrunnen BERG study) confirmed the anti-ageing qualities of a combination of gentle sport and healing iodine sulphur water – so Lake Tegernsee is a real fountain of youth!
