Activities & Pursuits

Get out into nature. The southeastern part of Upper Bavaria is a little paradise for outdoor sports enthusiasts. The local area offer various opportunities to spend enjoyable active holidays in both summer and winter: skiing and snowboarding, sledging, ice skating, walking and climbing, cycling and mountain biking, golf, sailing, horse riding and swimming. Below you find some tips and suggestions.

Alpine Skiing and Nordic Skiing

Skifahren und Langlauf

Hochfelln and Ruhpolding
The Hochfelln Ski Area provides 6 excellent slopes with lift for both skiers and snowboarders. The ski runs suit both beginners and advanced skiers. At the Ruhpolding Ski Centre, a cable car, a two-seater chairlift and two draglifts take the skiers to the top of the ski runs on the slopes of “Unternberg” mountain. There are advantageous rates for families. Ruhpolding is a paradise for cross-country skiing enthusiasts. There is a network of cross-country skiing trails with a total length of more than 60 kilometres, including easy trails for leisurely cross-country skiing and more challenging routes for a workout. You can enjoy Nordic skiing, where once a year thousands of spectators attend the Biathlon World-Cup event. There are routes for Nordic cruising and well-groomed trails for classic-style cross-country skiing and skating.

Natural Sledge Runs and Ice Rink

Sledging and Ice-Skating
The “Hochplattenbahn” chairlift takes the visitors to the top of the sledge run, from where you can enjoy a toboggan ride of 10 minutes. Further natural sledge runs can be found in the near “Kaisergebirge” mountains as well as in the “Priental” and “Inntal” valleys. For more than 40 years, the ice-skating elite has met at the ice rink in Inzell for training and competition. The ice makers of Inzell have gained reputation on international level. Try your hand at ice-skating on the 400-metre ice track or enjoy figure skating on the ice rink. In Inzell you can skate not only on well-prepared ice, but also in front of a wonderful scenery. The ice-skating stadium is overlooked by the majestic “Falkenstein” and “Kienbergl” mountains. Ice-skate hire is available at the ice-skating facility.

Walking & Hiking


In the immediate neighbourhood of Waging there are marvellous walks, notably on the slopes of “Högl” mountain overlooking the village of Piding. You can, for example, walk from the village of Steinhögl across old mixed woodlands to the “Stroblalm” Moutain Inn. A wealth of beautiful walks run on the slopes of “Teisenberg” hill, overlooking the village of Teisendorf, with its numerous Alpine pastures, where you are served hearty food and drinks in summer.
The mountains in the surroundings of the towns of Bad Reichenhall and Berchtesgaden provide endless opportunities for scrambling and climbing enthusiasts. The routes include an easier climb to the summit of “Kneifelspitze” mountain offering stunning panoramic views, a moderately difficult ascent to the top of “Zwiesel” mountain and a challenging climb to the summit of “Watzmann” mountain, requiring appropriate equipment, excellent climbing skills and a good physical fitness.

“Anthal” Golf Course

Golfplatz Anthal

The gently rolling landscape of the Alpine foothills and the woodlands of deciduous trees in the “Götzinger Ache” biotope make the “Anthal” Golf Course a quite special place.
The "Stonecreek", a dry creek bed, is a hazard running along the fairways. It is a characteristic feature of the golf facility representing a particular challenge even to the proficient golfers.
The animal enclosure with roe deer, situated on the edge of the golf course underpins the skilful and eco-friendly landscaping.

Cycling and Mountain Biking

Radfahren und Mountainbiken

The “Benediktweg” is a cycle trail extending to 248 kilometres, which allows cyclists to follow in the footsteps of the Bavarian Pope Benedict XVI. The circular trail runs from the pilgrimage site of Altötting via the towns of Burghausen, Tittmoning, Mayerhofen, Traunstein, Amerang and Mühldorf (21 stages) back to the starting point.

Mountain biking
In the “Chiemgau” county and the neighbouring areas, there are a lot of more or less challenging trails for mountain bike enthusiasts, for example, the route to “Frasdorfer Hütte” Mountain Inn, “Priener Hütte” refuge and to the top of “Hochgern” mountain. For particularly ambitious mountain bike rides, there are the trails on the slopes of “Kampenwand” mountain.

The Warmest Lakes in Upper Bavaria

Die wärmsten Seen Oberbayerns

Lake “Waginger See” is separated from Lake “Tachinger See” by a small strip of land close to the village of Tettenhausen. Further popular bathing sites are the small “Leitgeringer See” tarn near Tittmoning and the “Abtsdorfer See” tarn near the village of Laufen. All these lakes and tarns are characterised by pleasant water temperatures. The Lake “Chiemsee”, affectionately referred to as the "Bavarian Ocean", is the largest lake in Bavaria and recalls a Mediterranean setting with its extensive pebble beaches.
