Winter at the Tegernsee

Sometimes fast, sometimes leisurely.

When winter arrives in Upper Bavaria, there is hardly anything better than exploring the mountains while tobogganing, cross-country skiing, skiing and hiking in snowhoes or on groomed winter hiking trails.

Fantastic views of the snow-covered Alps, perfectly groomed slopes and the fresh mountain air make a skiing holiday at Tegernsee the perfect winter holiday in Bavaria.

Tegernsee Advent Season

During the Advent season, Tegernsee is contemplative, but it's not quiet.

From alpine huts to star gastronomy, restaurateurs invite you to the “winter lounge” with culinary delicacies over mulled wine and fire pits. If you are curious about Bavarian whiskey, regional brandies, the famous Tegernsee beer or wine from the reading yards of the former monastery, you can taste them at the Advent tastings.

Romantic carriage rides through the winter landscape, a boat tour on the lake and tours with the local guides complete the Advent offer.

Tegernsee Winter Sport

Getting rid of the traces of culinary sins is easy in the DSV nordic aktiv region Tegernsee. A cross-country ski trail network of over 100 km stretches around the lake and invites you to discover the beautiful landscape. In addition to that, Tegernsee offers more than 300 kilometers of well-groomed slopes and is thus the largest connected ski area in the foothills of the Alps. Moreover we have one of the longest natural toboggans run in Germany with 6.5 kilometres down the 1722 metre high Wallberg.

Further more we can look back on a particularly long tradition of ice stock sport in Bad Wiessee, Kreuth and Rottach-Egern and we have specially created natural ice rinks for this purpose.

Tegernsee Wellness 

After a day in the snow the heavenly loungers with sheepskins invites you to take a break or you can relax in the lake sauna. In addition, there are various day spas options. A special highlight is also the iodine and sulfur bath in Bad wiessee. Here you can experience the healing power of water.

Tegernsee Culture 

The Tegernsee also has a lot to offer culturally - from folklore evenings to cabaret and exhibitions. The local guides are also on the road in winter history, culture and sport.

As you can see the region around the Lake Tegernsee provides a diverse range of culture, cuisine, relaxation and sport - embedded in the picturesque winter landscape of the snow-covered valley.

Enjoy your lake moment in the cold season at Tegernsee.
