Tour Details

Bavaria just like on a picture postcard: majestic mountain tops, deep blue sparkling lakes, idyllic alpine pastures with grazing cattle – and lots more! Discover Bavaria’s most beautiful clichés during a week-long walking tour in Germany between Bad Tölz and Bayrischzell. Walk casually on marvellous panoramic mountain paths through picturesque scenery, have broken along the way in pretty little mountain chalets and enjoy a typical snack, (Brotzeit’) and a cool big glass of beer. The lakes Tegernsee and Schliersee re great if you fancy a swim, a dip into the refreshing waters of mountain lakes is always welcome on a hot summer’s day. Mountains, lakes and a Bavarian ‘Brotzeit‘ -snack – is there anything better than that? We don’t’ think so. Come and join us and see for yourself what Bavaria has in store for you!
