Lake Schliersee/Tegernsee Brewery & Alpine Hiking Private Tour
This day trip also takes you to one of our absolute favorite locations: Tegernsee lake in the foothills of the Bavarian Alps! But, as opposed to the more relaxed Tegernsee tour that we offer which includes train travel and a ferry ride, this one requires a few hour hike from Lake Schliersee over a small mountain and down to Lake Tegernsee. This hike is one of our personal favorites that includes amazing views of the Alps and lake scenery, a great medium-level hike and great stops for beer and food.
After taking a comfortable train directly from Munich, we will arrive a few minute walk from Schliersee. This small lake in the Alpine foothills offers amazing views to start our hike. We then continue on a small, but well-kept trail westward towards Tegernsee, a larger lake over the small mountain. The hike takes us past small ponds, local farms with farm animals roaming, and leads past 3 different huts all serving beer, food and snacks and offering great views themselves. We will definitely take advantage of their hospitality and make us wonder why we live in big cities when we could run an Alpine Hut in this beautiful environment!
At the last hut, we get a great view over Tegernsee and our destination: the Tegernseer Bräustuben, a fantastic beer garden and restaurant on the grounds of an over 1,000 year old former Monastery on the lakeside. You may be a bit exhausted but ready for your delicious and well-deserved reward! We will have free time afterwards to relax on the lake, check out the cute town of Tegernsee with half-timbered houses, browse their nice gift and beer merchandise shop, and have some gelato or coffee before we head back to Munich.
This tour includes a medium-level hike that lasts around 3 hours at a leisurely pace with multiple breaks. The first half of the hike requires uphill climbing and many pauses along the way. The path and tour is not suitable for small children or those who need help walking. Immediately when we reach the top and the main uphill climbing section is finished, we take a break at a wonderful Alpine hut to refresh ourselves and take in a great view. The rest of the hike is mostly flat along the mountain, before we find the last hut and it heads downhill to the next lake.
This is a trip that we have taken multiple guests and friends on and all have commented on how unbelievably great the trip and views are. But, that being said, it does require: caution, suitable shoes, at least 1-2 liters of water per person and having some snacks along is advisable. The Thirsty Historian and your tour guide are not liable for you not following our advice on this tour. Come join us to take in a wonderful hiking day between these two lakes in the Alps!
This hiking day trip takes place starting in March until the end of October or otherwise weather-permitting.
Full-day tour starts at €200/person (minimum 2 people) including train travel.
