It’s time to get out of the city again and experience something different! Sometimes we all feel like we need a break – we’re sure you know what we mean. Listen to that feeling and we'll help. With our Guten Tag Ticket, you and your friends or family can travel safely, comfortably and inexpensively into the countryside.

There's plenty to discover just a short train ride from Munich and Augsburg, from refreshing quarry lakes to stunning historic towns and mountain panoramas. For inspiration, in this Collection we’ve selected a few hikes and highlights along our route network. Found something that catches your eye? Call your friends, pack your rucksack, pull out your ticket and off you go on your microadventure!

No matter what you and your companions are in the mood for, we'll take you there. The BRB runs in all directions: Ammersee-Altmühltal, Chiemgau-Inntal, Ostallgäu-Lechfeld and the Bavarian Oberland. Do you already know the well-known hotspots and fancy some peace and quiet instead? We'll show you a few lesser-known destinations that are just as beautiful.

A great example of a peaceful location is the Altmühltal Valley Nature Park, a wonderful place to go hiking and enjoy nature. In the mood for more variety? Why not hire a canoe and discover the valley from a different perspective? Love wild swimming? Then pack your swimwear and head for Füssen or the Lech. You can cool off in reservoirs and lakes to your heart’s content.

If it’s height and mountain vistas you’re after, no problem. Either take the Kaiserlift up to the heights or earn the view yourself from the summit of the Großer Riesenkopf mountain. And if you miss hanging out on the sandy beach, there's a blissful substitute at Lake Chiemsee. Wherever you go, you can enjoy the soothing nature and beauty of Bavaria. Thanks to our train connections, you can travel in a relaxed and sustainable way as well.

Start the summer with your friends and discover the natural treasures around Munich and Augsburg. You don't always have to go far away to experience new things, clear your head and switch to holiday mode. With the right travel companion and the right destination, you can experience an unforgettable summer anywhere.

    Erlebnisimkerei Seeg

    Hiking Highlight

    Seeg is the first honey village in Germany. This is possible thanks to the hard work of 55 active beekeepers with 600 bee colonies. In the local beekeeping experience you can learn more about the work of beekeepers and how honey is produced. It is best to take part in a guided tour, so you will learn the most about the industrious peoples and can ask your questions.

    Would you like a taste? In the Bienenstüberl you can try the different types of honey and products. You can find all information about adventure beekeeping here: seeg.de/erlebnisimkerei-seeg.
