A convincing variety

10 reasons why the Tegernsee Valley is one of a kind


In terms of geography, nothing compares to the Bavarian Alp region. In addition to the unique landscape around the Tegernsee, Munich and Salzburg are only a stone’s throw away. Innsbruck is reachable within one driving hour – one more if you want to go to Bozen. In addition to that, it’s only a one hour drive to the Munich airport and just a few minutes more if you choose to fly from Innsbruck or Salzburg.


Despite the inevitable face- and name recognition of some Tegernsee inhabitants, nobody gets star-struck here. It’s an unwritten law not to bother those recognizable ones, so that they can live a normal life and feel at home in their community. What counts here is the person, not his or her degree of fame.


Quite rarely are lakes framed so smoothly by mountains of the Alpine foreland which makes the whole panorama all the more impressive. Also, the valley’s unique location leads to an extraordinary drinking water quality, as crystal clear mountain brooks provide the region with the best they have to offer.


Dirndl and Lederhos’n are rather must-have’s as part of a living tradition than an ethnic alibi to hold on to.
