No other place unites genuine tradition, sporting activities and cosmopolitan flair with such ease and pleasure. Rottach-Egern has all the ingredients for a happy holiday – from Michelin-starred restaurants to rustic Bavarian taverns, from luxury hotels to cosy B&Bs, from hustle and bustle to the calm of the lake. At 1,722 metres above sea level, the Wallberg is a treat for mountain lovers. You’ll find a marvellous view of the glistening lake and an idyllic chapel that looks out over the Alps, and, with a bit of luck and sunshine, you’ll see specks of colour in the sky above the mountain: paragliders and hang-gliders savouring the lightness of being and the freedom of flight.
