Hiking and Mountain Hiking in the Chiemgau

The Chiemgau is one of Bavaria’s leading tourism regions and offers one of the most expansive and best maintained networks of cycling and hiking trails in Germany.

Walking in the Achental valley, Chiemgau

Wanderung Achental Chiemgau

You will walk on well maintained walks  in the Achental valley or paralleling it. Often, the path follows the crest of the embankment of the Tiroler Ache mountain stream. This gives you and the children the opportunity to rest along the gravel banks and cool in the river water your feet which may have gotten hot from all the walking. Perhaps you even have the time to build a little dam in a brook.

Combining Hiking along the Chiemsee with a Ship Excursion

When hiking the Chiemsee Shore Route, the panorama of the Alps provides a unique backdrop. And this walk is especially appealing when part of the trip (e.g. heading to or from your destination) is done on one of the Chiemsee ships. An interim stop on the Fraueninsel island offers sightseeing, a worthwhile restaurant stop or a visit to the convent store.

Marshland Torfbahn Chiemsee

Marshland and Peat & Waterfowl Visit

The countryside between the Achental and the Chiemsee is especially attractive. There, the marshland reflects the strangest colors. The museum in the old station of the Torfbahn provides an insight into this strange land.

The viewing platforms in the Achental Nature Preserve offer free telescopes to view the rare world of waterfowl.

Heading to the Peaks and Alpine Huts

Here, beautiful hiking trails wind their way up to comfortable alpine huts, (for example the Jochbergalmen, Rechenbergalm, Feldlahnalm, Dalsenalm) and mountain restaurants (Hochgernhaus, Enzian-Huette, Agergschwendt-Alm, Taubenseehuette) where the resident  “Sennerin” spoils the wanderer with milk, ham, cheese and other typical “alm” refreshments, but also often with a homemade cake.
Hammergraben to Feldlahnalm Hike

Whoever wants to venture into the high country can conquer one of our local mountains, such as the Hochgern.  They can rest at the Gscheurer Wand  high up on the mountain from where they will enjoy the view far over the Chiemsee and the foothills of the Alps.  They can take a swim in the high elevation Taubensee lake, admire the little Streichen chapel, or they can enter their names in the register at the peak with its grandiose view.

The Nature Preserve at the top of the Geigelstein is also worth an excursion. There you can expect an unbelievable variety of flowers, including rare orchids, and a strange world of animals. A chairlift helps you to get to the top.
