Experiences in the mountains
Experience Upper Bavaria and its attractions. In the Alpenwelt Karwendel you are very close to the customs, traditions and history of an eventful Bavarian past.
Nostalgia and modernity meet in the Werdenfelser Land in an extraordinary way.
The world-famous violin making town of Mittenwald lies at the foot of the impressive Karwendel.
A stroll through the small alleys, the Obermarkt or the well-kept spa facilities will allow you to marvel at and discover many things.
Take a seat in a beer garden of the traditional inns and enjoy Mittenwald beer specialities and Bavarian delicacies.
Visit also the violin making museum or the baroque, catholic church St. Peter and Paul in the heart of Mittenwald and let yourself be inspired.
Feel true bavaria
In the Isarfeld in the municipalities of Krün and Wallgau you will find peace and quiet and experience nature up close. In spring, the surrounding fields show a rich flowering splendour and convey the calming feeling of freedom through their vastness. Stroll along the valley floor along the Isar and enjoy the fresh air and the light-heartedness that you will feel throughout the entire destination.
During the traditional village festivals, the farmers marketes in autuum and Christmas markets in december, you will immerse yourself in the way of life of the village population and experience the agriculture, handicrafts and specialities of the region.
You can leave your car at home for the whole holiday. The free regional bus takes you comfortably through the entire Oberland between Steingaden and Tegernsee.
Throughout the year there are various events in the Alpenwelt Karwendel. Guided hikes, local tours, brewery tours, creative workshops, theatre performances, music events, sports events, children's programmes and much more. During the carnival season, the Maschkeran in Werdenfelser Land is particularly spectacular. Witches, devils, bell stirrers and other wild creatures take on winter. With much noise and fearsome masks, here called "Larven", they drive the cold season out of the valleys.
However, our guests need not fear these rough figures just as little as rain weather or cold temperatures. Swimming pools, such as the Alpenbad in Leutasch or the Kristall Therme in Kochel, spoil you with wellness offers or sauna. For the little ones, a visit to the swimming pool is always an experience to let off steam in the water pool or on the slides. The Alpine foothills and the Werdenfelser Land already magically captivated King Ludwig at that time. During his lifetime he created impressive buildings which you should not miss. The castle Neuschwanstein in Schwangau, the castle Linderhof near Oberammergau or the castle Bergschloß am Schachen reflect the eccentric nobleman and amaze us. In the numerous museums of the region interested people can acquire extensive knowledge to different topic areas. Be it about the old building craft in the open-air museum Glentleiten or about the Werdenfelser Land in the local museum Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Those who are enthusiastic about painting will visit the Franz Marc Museum in Kochel.

Of course, the silver mine in Schwaz or the German Museum in Munich are also worth a visit. Munich is located about a hundred kilometres north of the Karwendel Alps and can be easily reached by bus, train or car. Experience the special flair of the Bavarian capital not only at the Oktoberfest. The city offers you numerous highlights all year round. Don't miss the Oberammergau Passion Play 2022. These take place only every ten years and show impressively the suffering and dying of Jesus Christ. From May to October 2022, the whole town is already in a state of emergency for the 42nd time.
