"The heavenly blue sky is reflected purely in the lake, the green mountains surrounding, fringed in black"
The Tegernsee is located only about 50 kilometres south of Munich on the edge of the Bavarian foothills to the Alps. It is fed by crystal-clear mountain streams and framed in the south by the local mountains Wallberg, Hirschberg and Leonhardstein. The beautiful region is a cultural landscape and creative place; a place of retreat and enjoyment, a farmland and an outdoor paradise. Here customs meet farsightedness, nature experience meets varied cultural and sporting leisure opportunities. Besides the beautiful nature and the impressive alpine panorama, the Tegernsee region is especially popular for its numerous leisure activities. Absolute solitude, silence and a breathtaking alpine panorama await visitors as they climb the mountains and discover the most remote corners far away from the hustle and bustle. Swimmers and sailors enjoy the crystal-clear water and the various sporting activities and events. Whether summer or winter, Lake Tegernsee and the wonderful surroundings around the lake present themselves as a top destination at any time of year.
