Germany's most beautiful golf region 5 reasons why the Chiemgau-Area is the most beautiful golf region in Germany

No. 1 Top courses & top hotels

Eleven golf courses are located around Lake Chiemsee on the edge of the Bavarian Pre-Alps. Sometimes flat, sometimes hilly, well  maintained fairways, blooming fruit trees, small lakes and old trees make the game an exquisite pleasure for the eye. The view of the peaks of the Chiemgau mountains is your constant companion at every tee. Some courses are located in a valley and are surrounded by mountains on three sides. Awards such as "Leading Golf Courses Germany" or "Golf & Natur" in gold, underline the high quality and make the "Golfland Chiemsee" attractive for the highest demands. Professional golf lessons, handicap courses and trial lessons are just as standard as a high-quality gastronomic offer after or during the round. After coffee, straight to the first tee – that's something many golf fans would appreciate on their vacation. The Hotel Achental in Grassau and the Gut Ising have their own facilities and provide just that. Exclusive chalets and hotels in the three and four star superior category, some with their own lake access and spacious spa area, ensure a high level of comfort for discerning golf guests.

Frank Saeger, spokesman for Golfland Chiemsee: “In terms of quality and number of golf courses, Golfland Chiemsee offers something that is second to none in Germany. A real flagship for the region!"

No. 2 Fish on a stick & haute cuisine

In the evening, the hotel's own restaurants invite you to "fine dining". In March 2022, the "ES:SENZ" in Grassau has placed itself at the top of regional gastronomy with two Michelin stars. The Gut Steinbach in Reit im Winkl, the Landhaus Tanner in Waging, the Yachthotel in Prien and the Hotel Gut Ising also operate hotel restaurants of a high standard. The region is also known for its hearty cuisine, which often focuses on fresh fish from Lake Chiemsee. The traditional Chiemsee renke as "Müllerin Art" or filet reveals the pure taste of the region. If you like it more rustic, you can choose the “Stecklfisch” variant, which is available in the fish huts around the lake.

No. 3 Highly attractive holiday and leisure region

The golf courses are embedded in a holiday region that leaves nothing to be desired. Untouched nature with hiking trails, alpine pastures, a well-developed cycle network, monasteries, beer gardens and sights are the reason why the Chiemgau-Area has been one of the most popular holiday regions in Germany for decades. The Chiemsee islands lure visitors all year round with their magnificent castle, cathedral, Chiemsee painters' gallery and the lush flowering herb garden of the Frauenwörth monastery. The diversity of the region with a thriving cultural life from traditional costume festivals to classical music festivals - that's what fascinates guests in the Chiemgau-Area.

No. 5 Very close: Salzburg, Munich & Co.

Top class destinations await on golf-free days or after short rounds. Salzburg, the city of Mozart, is only around 50 kilometers away and Munich is around 80 kilometers away. Both cities are easily accessible by train. The "longest castle in the world" in Burghausen, Berchtesgaden with the salt mine and St. Bartholomä and the pilgrimage town of Altötting are popular day trips from the Chiemgau-Area.
