Dreamlike mountain scenery, magnificent blue lakes, lush alpine meadows, and rustic restaurants – the Tölzer Land is straight from the pages of a fairytale. With such wonderful scenery, this region in Upper Bavaria is perfect for your next hiking trip. In this Collection, we’ve put together five varied and exhilarating Tours to inspire you – from gentle hikes exploring wild herbs to challenging summit ascents. On these hikes, you get to know the wonderful landscapes around Bad Tölz, the Starnberger See, Kochelsee, and the magical mountains of the foothills of the Alps.
The Tölzer Land stretches between the Isar and Loisach rivers, just south of Munich. Climb the Blomberg, the local mountain of Bad Toelz, and enjoy a break with a view in a cosy alpine hut. Explore the Ellbach Moor and get comfy on the banks of the River Isar. If you are interested in herbs, then the Herbal Adventure Park in Bad Heilbrunn is a must. You can learn lots of interesting things about useful and diverse plants on a stroll through the beautiful park. Close to the Starnberger See, you can hike around Münsing municipality where fantastic mountain views await. Finally, you can expect postcard landscapes as you hike to the shimmering blue water of the Kochelsee lake.
All five hikes are circular. If you are travelling without a car, you can reach the starting points of the Tours easily by public transport. Bad Tölz makes for a good basecamp if you are planning to stay in the region for several days. If you don’t want to carry your own snacks in your rucksack, you can treat yourself to regional delicacies in the restaurants en route. A picture-perfect hiking holiday in Bavaria awaits!
