Sightsseing around Munich

One-day excursions

In this section, you will find suggestions for day trips from Munich that have proved rewarding for our international visitors in the past. These trips must be individually booked, so can be organised according to your wishes.

We have been working very successfully with an experienced travel agent and tour guide for many years now. Their minibus can take up to ten passengers for a total of around EUR 420 per day plus admission fees.
Other, more economical alternatives include renting a car or booking a scheduled bus tour operated by Autobus Oberbayern. However, the latter does mean travelling in a group, so without the flexibility to choose your own itinerary and time frame. There is also a train service to Augsburg, Regensburg, Berchtesgaden, Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Salzburg.

Tegernsee

The picturesque Tegernsee region, known for its recreational value, is located approximately 50 kilometres southeast of Munich, around 747 metres above sea level. The name “Tegernsee” probably derives from the Old High German “tegarin seos”, meaning “large lake”.

Lake Tegernsee is about 6.5 kilometres long and 2 kilometres wide, with a maximum depth of 74 metres. Besides its recreational value, it serves as a major source of drinking water for Munich.

There are four communities on the shore of Lake Tegernsee, namely the town of Tegernsee, Gmund (am Tegernsee), Rottach-Egern and Bad Wiessee.

Tegernsee (town)

Situated on the east shore of the lake that bears the same name, the town of Tegernsee is where the religious order of the Benedictines founded their first monastery in the eighth century AD, thus paving the way for the settlement of the entire Tegernsee region.

After the Great Secularisation in 1803, the monastery was abandoned until 1817 when the first King of Bavaria, Max I Joseph turned it into his summer residence. His love and passion for the picturesque region not only attracted many aristocrats and wealthy citizens but also several artists such as painters, poets and writers.

The north wing of the monastery complex still hosts the “Ducal Bavarian Brewery of Tegernsee”, one of Germany´s oldest breweries. This comes as no surprise, after all, beer-brewing is a discipline invented and perfected by monks.

Gmund (am Tegernsee)

Home to our Louisenthal paper mill, this village lies at the north end of Lake Tegernsee on either side of the Mangfall river.

Show details

Less affected by tourism than the other communities surrounding the lake, Gmund is nevertheless one of Germany’s major production centres for both security and commercial paper, with the Büttenpapierfabrik Gmund paper mill headquartered here too. This is due in large part to the proximity of the Mangfall river, which runs right through the village and also plays an important role in supplying Munich’s drinking water.

Rottach-Egern

This is the region’s largest village, situated at the south end of Lake Tegernsee. The monastery began to settle the area from here in the eleventh and twelfth centuries.

Various artists are buried in the graveyard of the parish church of St. Lawrence in the village (built in 1466). Another landmark is the nearby Wallberg mountain (approx. 1722 m high), which offers a magnificent view over Tegernsee and is accessible either by cable car or hiking (approx. 2.5 hours each way on foot).

Bad Wiessee

In 1441, monks discovered oil at the site of St. Quirinus Chapel in Wiessee, which they sold as holy water. Although further explorations proved fruitless, the continued drilling for oil led to a finding that has turned into a blessing for the whole area.

Show details

In 1909, one of the largest thermal saltwater springs in Germany was discovered here at a depth of 670 metres. The first spa building opened the following year. In 1913, the curative properties of the spa were officially recognised and Wiessee gained its “Bad” title. Used in front of German place names, this officially designates a “Heil- und Kurbad” – a healing and curative spa.

Owing to these iodine-sulphur springs, Bad Wiessee attracts  large numbers of visitors, both seeking recreation and recovering from s illness or operations. Available leisure options range from a casino to several golf courses in the vicinity.
