Hidden Gems for Tegernsee
Find great things to do on Tegernsee
With its crystal waters dotted with boats, beautiful mountain backdrop and neat lakeside villages, Tegernsee is a classic Alpine lake resort, the terminus of a direct rail link with Munich. In our travel guide you will find great things to do in Tegernsee.
1. Hidden Gem Tegernsee: Siebenhütten Alm
Immediately behind Wildbad Kreuth, a magnificent natural paradise awaits. It is easy to reach and wonderfully situated on the Hofbauernweißach. On the way to the Alm there are numerous beautiful resting places, which invite you to take a dip in the cool water or a break in the shade. The name comes from the days when the seven mountain huts were actually operated by seven farmers from Kreuth. Only three huts remain; two of them are used as storage and one as a rustic snack station. The food available here is typical of the region. Try the cheese from the natural dairy “Tegernseer Land” and the beer, of course, from the Ducal Brauhaus Tegernsee!

2. Hidden Gem Tegernsee: Naturkäserei TegernseeLand
Amidst the Tegernsee mountains, the “Naturkäsereich” produces flavourful semi-hard, hard and soft cheeses as well as creamy yoghurts made with quality pasture milk from the Tegernsee region. The products are top quality, as the participating dairy farmers must observe specific regulations for their milk to qualify as ‘pure pasture milk’. The natural, highly aromatic properties of the fodder have a positive impact on the production, taste and quality of pasture milk. You can book guided tours to learn how the cheese is produced, or simply come to the “Gastub´n” and enjoy some cheesy dishes.
