Excellent trails for young and old hiking enthusiasts
Hiking-friendly Bavaria presents itself to us from its most beautiful side: with the best weather we start hiking in Bayrischzell, along the wonderfully blue glittering Tegernsee to the Riederstein. Already here we notice that the paths are extraordinarily suitable for young and old. The variety is the most fun: Starting along the lake, we walk up the stairs to the Riederstein and through the woods back down to Tegernsee.
From one lake to another
But all of the following days are also quite challenging. We hike over alpine pastures to Schliersee and reward ourselves at the end of the day with a jump into the crystal clear lake. During the third stage, we first walk along the lakeside adventure trail of Schliersee before continuing up to Spitzingsee along the "Bockerlbahnweg". The fact that you can then go pedal boating on the deep blue mountain lake is just the "icing on the cake" of a wonderful day of hiking.
The fifth stage: up the Wendelstein mountain
Exhausted but happy, we then set off on our last day for our hike up the Wendelstein. And although the initially beautiful weather gives way to dense fog after the ride on the Wendelstein cable car, we enjoy the exciting and stony panoramic trail on the Wendelstein before we float back down into the valley on the cable car. After five wonderful days of hiking, we can confidently say that no two hiking days are alike. Before the trip, we had not expected to experience so much variety.
Children love Bavarian home cooking
We have to admit: The price for the food around the Tegernsee and the Wendelstein is somewhat higher than usual. Here you probably pay for the transport to the mountain inn or the alpine hut 😉 But once you have adjusted to it, you will be rewarded with tasty home cooking, which also offers the children so many things: At the Galaun mountain inn, the first stop is typically Munich white sausages. At Tegernsee, we taste the famous "Tegernseer Kirschtorte". In Spitzingsee we have delicious spinach dumplings in butter or hearty roast pork, and at the Gindelalm we share homemade Kaiserschmarrn with stewed plums. That we really enjoy ourselves on our hiking trip is out of the question! So if, like us, you like home cooking and appreciate regional cuisine, you'll be in good culinary hands on the hiking trip to Bavaria for families.
The hiking trip for families in Bavaria is an all-round successful hiking package for young and old: While we parents are rewarded with partly challenging hikes and incredible views, there is pure variety for kids. The highlights are the transfer over the Tegernsee and the cable car rides to the Taubenstein and Wendelstein, but also the lakes with their many swimming opportunities. The delicious Bavarian cuisine does the rest to make this a wonderful hiking trip for families. In any case, we fell in love with the mountains and lakes of Bavaria and have certainly not hiked for the last time in the State.
