Excursions around Tegernsee in Winter

Winter holidays

The cold time of year is one of the best opportunities for visiting Tegernsee! Our guests go cross-country skiing, downhill skiing, snowshoe hiking or tobogganing on their winter holiday. The picturesque, snow-covered landscape and the romantic winter atmosphere give you a feeling of being in a winter fairytale picture-book. Crystal clear views and perfect course conditions await you on the mountains for skiing and snowboarding.

The snow-covered lake is a unique sight, and is always a popular motif for postcards. But the lake only freezes over completely about once every seven years. The towns of Bad Wiessee, Kreuth and Rottach-Egern keep the tradition of curling alive at Tegernsee. Weather permitting, the local enthusiasts create one of Germany’s biggest ice rinks for this purpose. But even if the lake doesn’t freeze, there are still plenty of enchanting impressions to discover on its shores.

Winter activities

The Tegernsee region is one of the most diversified winter sport regions in the northern Alpine area. Be it cross-country skiing, downhill skiing, tobogganing, snowshoe hiking or a romantic carriage ride through the snow-covered landscape, the perfect adventure is definitely there for you! In the winter, the area around Tegernsee has many beautiful excursion destinations such as the 6.5 km long toboggan run at Wallberg in Rottach-Egern, not far from us. One of the Germany’s longest natural toboggan runs can be found there. After an eventful day in the snow, you can warm up and relax in our sauna.
