Königsee & Bavarian Alps Tour!

"That's how I always imagined Bavaria to be!"

On this tour we start in Munich, which, as you know, is in Bavaria, and come back to Bavaria via Austria. You don't know how to do that? Then let's ride together through the Bavarian-Austrian Alps!

There ist much to discover! The German Alpine Road connects Lindau on Lake Constance with Schönau on Königssee. In between are 450 kilometers that reach their dramatic and beautiful climax in the area of the Berchtesgaden Alps. "This is how I always imagined Bavaria to be," is often heard from visitors seeing Königsee for the first time (see picture above).

 

You will experience the unique atmosphere of Königsee on a boat trip--which is worthwile in any weather! As a contrast, the salt mining there tells about the great importance of salt for the people and especially for the people of Munich. Life and survival in the alpine region is forever immortalized in the legends of the region. And: Do you know about the exciting projects in the Alpine National Park? This and much more awaits you! Let's go!

​​

Let's ride together! I look forward to seeing you!

Königsee, Mount Watzmann & Berchtesgaden in Bavaria!

 

The Watzmann mountain is the third highest mountain in Bavaria and a legend among mountain peaks! Due to its uniquely shaped summit, it was even voted the most beautiful mountain in the world in 2014. Together with Königsee, it is what many imagine a Bavarian landscape to be: in front of the steeply rising Watzmann east face stands the picturesque pilgrimage church of St Bartholomä, whose red shingle roofs harmonize wonderfully with the shimmering green waters of Königssee.

Besides the Watzmann and the Königsee, there is much more to discover. The charming market town of Berchtesgaden and the mountaineering village of Ramsau with its picturesque church and enchanted forest. Salt has been mined in the nearby salt mine for over 600 years, and I was assured that the salt could be mined for another 200 years. This salt was traded in various market places, of which Munich was one. Without the salt trade, Munich would not exist!
