It is impossible to overemphasise the scenic splendour of Rottach-Egern’s stunning situation. Upon the banks of an iridescent and idyllic lake, the quaint town unfurls itself like a cat upon a rug. A majestic mountain backdrop adds an air of delightful drama to the place, providing outstanding opportunities for outdoor adventures; visitors can explore the exquisite environs in a number of ways, whether that be on foot, horseback or bicycle. In this quintessential quarter of Bavaria, rich tradition still reigns supreme and is most prominent in the festivals and fine food on offer.
The villages and towns that are scattered upon the scenic shore of Lake Tegernsee are home to an alluring array of cultural and historical attractions. A consecrated and contemplative place that is shrouded in history is the Commonwealth War Cemetry, a place in which the region’s dark past is sensitively commemorated. Wander the interminable rows of unmarked graves that symbolise the great loss experienced across the commonwealth during World War 2.
Bavaria boasts one of Germany’s richest and most remarkable historic heritages, so deserves a detailed and enthralling museum in which this is documented. The Tegernsee Heirtage Museum does not disappoint with its creative collection of art, photography and artefacts that cover a wide breadth of historical adventures.
In order to enjoy an imitable and inspiring experience of German gastronomy, dine at the summit of the majestic Mount Wallberg. A swift and sleek cable car transports daring diners to the vertiginous vantage point, inviting them thereafter into the remarkable Wallberg Restaurant, an exquisite eatery whose extensive and authentic menu is complimented by astounding Alpine vistas.
