Alpine pastures in the Chiemgau

During the summer months, the Chiemgau farmers bring their cattle from the valleys up to the lush alpine meadows. The alpine pastures can also be reached more or less easily on foot on well-marked hiking trails. The alpine huts invite you to try regional specialties and strengthen yourself with a hearty snack. Families have the opportunity to leave everyday life behind and explore nature and spend time together. The alpine summer in the Chiemgau is a time of peace, beauty and authenticity and you can feel that with every visit to and in conversation with the alpine innkeepers. Please be sure to get up-to-date information about opening hours and the weather before you go on a hike.


Cycling in the Chiemgau

If you like to explore the Chiemgau on your own, the best thing to do is jump on your bike and off you go. There is something suitable for almost every requirement. Countless kilometers can be cycled in one go north of the autobahn, such as on the themed bike tours or sections of the Mozart bike path. Or how about a combination of cycling and a brewery tour? In the Chiemgau mountains in the south of the region, mountain bikers enjoy nature and the feeling of happiness on the alpine pastures and vantage points.


Chiemgau mountain cableway

Hardly anything stands for the Chiemgau as much as its mountains and peaks. It is therefore not surprising that a visit to one of the peaks is simply part of a Chiemgau holiday. Of course, the peaks can be easily hiked, but if you don't want to, you also have the option of simply boarding a gondola or cabin between Watzmann and Wendelstein and enjoying the ascent. And from some peaks there is the best view of the Chiemgau - namely of the majestic large Chiemsee.
