The mountains in view
We love the mountains, not only because of the fresh air but above all for the winding roads and magnificent views - adventure feeling included. A road trip over country roads and Bavarian villages, past idyllic cow pastures, dense forests and lush green mountain pastures is the best way to "experience" Bavaria in the truest sense of the word.
Our route profile for road trip no. 1 guarantees pure driving pleasure and wonderful views over valleys and mountain peaks.
The journey begins in Bad Hindelang at the foot of the Oberjoch pass road. With 106 curves at 300 meters in altitude, this is a German record.
The dreamlike castles of Hohenschwangau and Neuschwanstein Castle take you into the fairytale world of King Ludwig II. In summer, the Weißensee, Hopfensee or Forggensee invite you to take a refreshing dip. The historic old town of Füssen is always worth a detour.
We continue through the Pfaffenwinkel with its baroque churches and monasteries into the Ammergau Alps. Oberammergau offers a worthwhile stopover with its Lüftlmalereien and its world-famous wood carvings. Ettal Abbey and Linderhof Castle are also waiting to be explored by you.
Next you get to Werdenfelser Land. Here you can enjoy breathtaking views of the Zugspitze, Germany's highest mountain.
The relaxed journey continues via Krün and Wallgau in the direction of Kesselberg. On the Kesselbergstraße you curve in 14 hairpin bends with an average gradient of four percent from Walchensee down to Kochelsee. Afterwards, a walk through the historic old town of Bad Tölz invites you to go shopping.
The area around the Tegernsee and Schliersee is considered a land of connoisseurs - here you can enjoy regional specialties and experience the typical Bavarian cosiness and hospitality up close. Whether in the beer garden or in a starred restaurant.
The route then leads us via the Sudelfeld and the legendary Tatzelwurmstraße down into the Inn Valley. Further towards Chiemsee you should not miss a boat trip to Herreninsel with a visit to Herrenchiemsee Castle and then to Fraueninsel.
Further east is the steepest part of this route. From Unterwössen in Chiemgau you drive up to the Masereralm with a gradient of up to twelve percent. The idyllic mountain village of Reit im Winkl is on the home stretch. At the end of the trip, a boat trip on the Königssee in the Berchtesgadener Land is a must.
