For a scenic alpine holiday, look no further than the quiet municipality of Rottach. One of Germany’s most definitive examples of a Bavarian hamlet, this town offers visitors a peaceful stroll amongst traditional architecture and stores hawking locally produced crafts (marvel at the handiwork on the archetypal wooden dolls). Winter brings plenty of sports in the surrounding mountains, from skiing to tobogganing and even snowshoe hiking, while warmer weather draws guests and locals alike to the shores of Lake Tegernsee for swimming, boating, and sunbathing. No matter the time of year you visit, Rottach-Egern offers up the charm typical of a classic fairytale village.

Location: Nestled Between Peaks and Tranquil Waters

Enshrouded by mountains, Rottach-Egern lies along Lake Tegernsee in the south of the German Federal State of Bavaria. Rottach-Egern sits roughly 55 km from Munich, and is even closer to the Austrian border, making it a great stopover destination for cross-European travelers as well as a prime attraction in its own right. While Rottach-Egern is not directly serviced by rail, a train from Munich will get you as close as the lake, and from there bus services continue into town–though the picturesque drive directly from Munich is quite manageable as well.

Culture: A Time-Honored Way of Life

The Coach and Sleigh Museum offers a fascinating insight into the traditional Upper Bavarian lifestyle throughout centuries past, and should not be skipped by anyone with a taste for history. Plenty of genuine local handicrafts and other products are available for those whose interests steer towards shopping. If it’s action you seek, try hiking the mountainside trails–don’t forget to cool down afterwards with a dip into the brilliant waters of Lake Tegernsee.

Activities: An Alpine Destination

Most visitors are drawn to Rottach-Egern for its snowy mountain slopes, and you certainly won’t want to miss the fantastic local skiing, tobogganing, and snowshoeing opportunities. A trip up nearby Wallberg Mountain (the peak of which is accessible by hiking or by cable car) offers incredible vistas of the plains to the north and Alps to the south, and the Mangfall Mountains make a lovely destination for challenging hikes and adventurous overnight stays in rustic huts. If you’re looking for something more laid back, try gentle biking or boating around the lake.
