In winter, Upper Bavaria has its own unique charm. Its wide fields and hills disappear under a glittering layer of snow. Proud mountain peaks – including Germany's highest mountain, the Zugspitze – present themselves in all their wintry glory. The region’s well-known cities such as Munich and Rosenheim, also dress up in their most beautiful winter attire.
After autumn, which often far too grey, people are particularly keen to venture outside again. Wrapped up warm, you trudge off through the winter world. Even if we currently have our trips on hold and spend the Christmas season mostly at home to take care of our fellow human beings, we can already look forward to Tours in snowy nature.
These Tours will take you to places in the region that are especially beautiful in winter. You hike to the shore of the picturesque Egglburg Lake and follow in the footsteps of Empress Sisi. You'll make your way through the almost meditative landscape around Maria Thalheim, explore the popular Tegernsee region, and embark on the unforgettable Kammerl-Runde near Saulgrub. Of course, you can't miss Königssee, one of the most popular photo motifs in the region, and the city of Munich itself on your list of things to see in Upper Bavaria.
If you want to know more about what we are raving about here, browse through our Tour recommendations and get a taste of winter hiking in Upper Bavaria. Sturdy shoes with a non-slip sole are recommended, warm clothing is essential, and hiking poles will give you additional stability.
We don't yet know when all the refreshment stops on the Tours will open again, but until then, just bring your own snacks and a thermos of steaming tea. You can look forward to an unforgettable time in the winter paradise.
