Walking without luggage in the South of Germany
Lake Chiemsee could nearly be mistaken for the sea. With its boundless scale it bestows the surrounding area with a Mediterranean flair. Little cafés, lidos and little towns to take a stroll in line the lakeside. Discover the gems of the Chiemgau region during a walking tour with Eurohike. Amongst them palaces steeped in legend, enchanting scenery and delightful ‚box seats’.
Walking enjoyment as far as the eye can see
The area around Lake Chiemsee has a few special highlights in store.
- There are more than 14 lakes – amongst them the warmest, Upper Bavarian ‚Lake Waginger See’.
- 300 different species of birds spend the winter in the Chiemgau region.
- 300 square kilometres of the region is conservation area.
You see, between mountain splendour and enjoying a swim in a lake hiking has just become even more delightful. From the peaks of the Chiemgau Alps you marvel at Bavaria’s impressive panorama. But not only that – with a bit of luck and clear visibility you can even see all the way to Salzburg or the Tyrol.
Walking tours in the delightful Chiemgau region
The Chiemgau region is a special part of Germany – and a special part of Bavaria. If you think tradition is tradition you are mistaken. Bavaria is incredibly multifaceted, which means there are customs in the Chiemgau that cannot be found anywhere else in Bavaria. On a culinary note, the Lake Chiemsee whitefish is very popular with hiking holiday makers. And fundamentally you get to know the Bavarian attitude towards life and food during a so-called ‚Brotzeit’.
Culture enthusiasts get their money’s worth in the Chiemgau. Already hundreds of years ago blue-blooded personae discovered the beauty of this region. King Louis II had a true fairy tale palace built here, which is a must-see on every Lake Chiemsee hiking tour. If you prefer it more true-to-life and practical, then you get to look over the shoulders of local craftsmen in their workshops.
