Do you love the snow as much as we do? Then visit us in winter and enjoy the wintry Chiemgau with us.
Experienced paraglider pilots know the best places to spread out their gliders and soar into the Chiemgau mountain air. If you are curious (greedy), you will find a few tips here that will make it easier for you to get started with paragliding. Hike and Fly is a way to try flying. At the very beginning of a paragliding career there is often a tandem flight. Some Chiemgau mountain railways have a launch ramp for paragliders at the mountain station.
The thermal conditions in the Chiemgau are also perfect for hot air balloons and gliders on many days.
Plug fish and stand concert, Schuhplatteln and Schmalzbrot: A holiday in the Chiemgau is a good opportunity to get to know the regional cuisine and the customs that have grown and been cultivated over centuries. All traditional events are popular with guests and locals - from the Georgiritt at Easter to the erection of the maypole and the Leonhardiritt in November. In between there are many summer costume festivals and parades. The magnificently decorated steeds are just as eye-catching as the proudly worn historical costumes of the Chiemgau residents.
The Kendlmühlfilzen is one of the largest raised bogs in Bavaria and has been a nature reserve since 1992. The Filze has developed from a silting up zone of the formerly much larger Ur-Chiemsee.
This natural jewel is a worthwhile destination at any time of the year. It is particularly beautiful in early summer, when cotton grass covers the landscape with its white inflorescences. Another natural spectacle occurs a little later in the summer, as soon as the blooming heather makes the entire moor appear purple.
The largest lake in Bavaria, the Chiemsee, is not called the "Bavarian Sea" for nothing. Vacationers and locals appreciate it because of its size and the unforgettably wide view of the Chiemgau Alps. Between the beach bar and cycle path, lakeside café and boat rental, water sports and enjoyment are equally "at home". But without the almost 50 little siblings, the Chiemgau would not be what it is. The Waginger See, for example, is the warmest lake in Upper Bavaria. When wanderlust sets in: How about a detour to "Little Canada" - that's what the locals call the three-lake region between Ruhpolding and Reit im Winkl.

Get kitted out right here with neoprene suits, socks, canyoning belts and helmets to then start out on a wonderful tour. Minimum participant number: 6 people (8-10 people per trainer ).

Do you enjoy listening to stories? Then on Saturday we recommend you take a trip to the museum ‘Salz & Moor’. Find out more about the exciting history of the brine pipeline from Reichenhall to Rosenheim, which was one of the first pipelines in the world. In the adjoining moor museum you get fascinating insights into life in a raised moorland area.
Explore the loveliest nooks in Chiemsee during a island tour on a steamboat operated by Chiemsee Schifffahrt. On Herreninsel you get an opportunity to visit the splendid Schloss Herrenchiemsee. And after that, be inspired by the idyllic charm of Fraueninsel.
