Get away from the rat race, take in the healthy mountain air and enjoy breathtaking views – the Bavarian mountains attract hiking experts and casual mountaineers alike. There's nowhere better for relaxing than on the peak.
The perfect mountain for beginners. You don’t need to be a seasoned mountaineer on a trip to the Osterfelderkopf mountain.
Hiking in Bavaria with the whole family? Osterfeldkopf is the best place for you. Wide paths, spellbinding nature and a hearty snack on the mountain pasture – there's plenty to attract visitors big and small to the peak near Garmisch.
The Karwendelbahn cablecar at Mittenwald only needs a few minutes to whisk visitors from an altitude of 933 metres to 2,244 metres. At the top of the line, they can take in the amazing view of the Isar valley and call into the visitor centre about the Karwendel range's natural environment. The information available there is as engrossing as the building's appearance.
Climbing on the peak, a tour on the panoramic trail overlooking the sparkling lakes and the Isartal valley – or perhaps a visit to Germany's highest nature information centre and a coffee on the summer terrace? You're spoilt for choice when hiking in the Karwendel mountain range.
Adventures galore! Be it mountaineering, kite flying, paragliding or skiing. It’s all possible in the Ammergau Alps.
A visit to the old haunts of Bavarian kings – the Ammergau Alps are an absolute must when hiking in Bavaria. You can walk in the footsteps of the Bavarian ruler by hiking the favourite paths of Max II, or pay a visit to Neuschwanstein, the fairy-tale castle of Ludwig II.
Simply magnificent! The Franconian Mountain Path, with a total length of almost 430 km, stretches from the Franconian Forest to the Pegnitztal valley.
Rugged rocks, fairy-tale castles, incredible views – hiking on the Fränkischer Gebirgsweg (Franconian mountain path) in the very north of Bavaria feels like stepping into one of the Grimms' fairytales. By the way, the region isn't only known for endless hiking paths – but also for its beer and local snack specialities.
