Holidays in the Bavarian Alps

Since the Bavarian Alps are one of the most popular holiday regions in Germany, you will find a large selection of holiday accommodations, ranging from modern apartments in the city to cosy holiday apartments and vacation rentals to idyllic chalets on the banks of the large Alpine lakes. You will find what you are looking for, especially in the larger cities such as Oberammergau, Garmisch-Patenkirchen, Bad Reichenhall, Berchtesgaden and Füssen. But you also live very picturesquely directly on Lake Chiemsee and on the eastern shore of Lake Constance.

Vacation in the Bavarian Alps

Location and orientation

Spatial structure

The Bavarian Alps encompass the entire Alpine region on German soil and extend from Lake Constance in the west to Lake Königssee in the east. The mountain range is also subdivided into further partial mountains, the geological shape of which is characterised by glaciers from the last ice age. In detail, the Bavarian Alps consist of the Chiemgau Alps, the Berchtesgaden Alps, the Karwendel Mountains, the Ammergau Alps, the Allgäu Alps and the Wetterstein Mountains with the Zugspitze.

Locomotion on site

For the locomotion locally as well as for the journey to your vacation home in the Bavarian alps an own car or a rented car is very recommendable. This is especially true if you come to the region for mountain biking or hiking, especially as the most beautiful places as well as many hiking car parks are difficult to reach by public transport. Only the larger cities are connected by regularly scheduled train and bus lines. Anyone who arrives in winter or moves into a vacation rental at higher altitudes should also bear in mind that a four-wheel drive vehicle is an advantage on the partly gravelled mountain roads.

Things to know

Best travel time

The variety of possible activities, ranging from hiking and cycling to swimming in the alpine lakes and skiing, makes the Bavarian Alps an ideal destination all year round. While the region is in the hands of winter sports enthusiasts thanks to a snow guarantee at high altitudes between December and early March, the first hours of sunshine in April already attract nature lovers and cyclists. This optimal travel period extends into October, with bathing holidaymakers betting on July and August when the lakes have warmed up to a refreshing bathing temperature of up to 20 degrees Celsius.

Regular events

The small and large towns in the Bavarian Alps are characterised by their broad programme of events, which includes highlights such as the Oberammergau Passion Festival, the Richard Strauss Festival in Garmisch-Patenkirchen in June and the music festival "Füssen goes Jazz". The region also boasts sporting highlights such as the New Year's Jumping of the Four Hills Tournament and the König-Ludwig Run in February.

With a height of 2962 metres, the Zugspitze is the highest point in the Bavarian Alps.

Top travel tips

Fantastic mountain panorama on the AlpspiX

Free as a bird hovering over the rugged mountain landscape of the Bavarian Alps? You can fulfil this dream on the 25-metre-long AlpspiX viewing platform, which rises above the approximately 1,000-metre-deep abyss on the summit of Oberfelderkopf and opens up a breathtaking panorama.

Trip to the castle of the fairytale king

Neuschwanstein Castle, built in the 19th century, is not only one of the most famous sights in Germany, but also the epitome of a fairytale castle. Immerse yourself in the fairytale world of King Ludwig II as part of a guided tour and let yourself be carried away by a Disney film.

Relax at Lake Chiemsee

As one of the largest German lakes, Lake Chiemsee is very popular with both sailors and bathers. Those who spend their summer holidays in the Bavarian Alps should definitely pay a visit to the picturesque lake.
