Situated right on the Chiemsee, also known as the Bavarian Sea, with the Chiemgau Alps behind, Bernau am Chiemsee is set in a stunning location. This is a beautiful area to explore on foot, and it is very easy to get a change of view, whether looking out across the water whilst strolling along the banks of the Chiemsee, or looking back down on the town from the top of the Chiemgau Alps. Cycling is another popular activity, from family-friendly cycle paths to adrenaline-fuelled mountain biking, Bernau has something for cyclists of all ages and abilities. A designated health resort due to its superior air quality, this is just the place to visit, whether you want action and adventure, or rest and relaxation.

Location: On Lake Chiemsee, near the Austrian border

Bernau am Chiemsee is in Southern Germany, not far from the Austrian border. Located on the southern side of the Chiemsee, a large freshwater lake, the town has around 7,000 inhabitants. Major airports are not far, as Munich is approximately 100 kilometres and Salzburg is only 55 kilometres away. It is also near the BAB 8 motorway, which has two exits leading to Bernau am Chiemsee. There are good public transport links, and the town is on the main Munich to Vienna railway line.

Culture: Royal connections

Visit Herrenchiemsee, a palace built in 1878 by King Louis II, situated on the island of the same name. The palace, which was never completed, was supposed to be a replica of the Palace of Versailles. You can take a tour of the castle and its extensive grounds. Or view the Greek statues in the Schulpark in the town centre. They were originally commissioned by King Louis I., and were in the State Library in Munich until they were damaged in the Second World War. The statues in Munich were replaced by copies in the 1950s, and the originals were then put on display in Bernau am Chiemsee.

Activities: Water, water everywhere

Bernau am Chiemsee is not a typical winter sports resort, but due to its proximity to some of the best-known resorts in Austria, it actually makes an excellent base. There are several cross-country ski trails on your doorstep as well as the small resort of Kampenwand, which has 12 kilometres of pistes. Or enjoy a romantic horse-drawn carriage ride through the magical winter landscape. The pure water of the Chiemseee makes it very inviting to swimmers and sailors. If the weather is too cold, there is an indoor pool and sauna.
