Chiemgau summit tours

Find your personal happiness on the summit

The Chiemgau-dilemma: if you stand on top of a summit, you can see the blue Lake Chiemsee below and would like to be right back down. If you sit by the Chiemsee and look up at the mountains, you would like to be up again. There is no escape from this dilemma. It is best to try each peak once: the demanding Sonntagshorn, the highest peak in the Chiemgau-Area. The three “Hochs”: Hochfelln, Hochgern and Hochplatte in the Achental. Or the Rauschberg with sculptures and a panoramic path. And a fantastic view awaits you on every summit.

Hikes with all levels of difficulty

No matter which route or which summit, whether short or difficult: It is important to have good preparation and the right, appropriate equipment so that there are no surprises on the tour. For those who find the ascent or descent too far: eleven mountain railways between Watzmann and Wendelsteinlike can help you reach the summit of choice.

Which of the Chiemgau's local mountains could be your favorite peak? Here are a few suggestions.
