Customs and joie de vivre in Upper Bavaria
In the Isarfeld in the municipalities of Krün and Wallgau you can find peace and experience nature up close. In spring, the surrounding fields display a rich variety of blossoms and convey a calming feeling of freedom through their vastness. Take a walk along the Isar river at the bottom of the valley and enjoy the fresh air and the light-heartedness that you will feel throughout the destination.
At traditional village festivals, the Almabtrieben in autumn with farmers' markets and the Christmas markets at Advent, you can immerse yourself in the way of life of the village population and experience agriculture, handicrafts and specialities of the region. You can safely leave your car at home for the whole holiday. The free regional bus takes you comfortably through the entire Oberland between Steingaden and Tegernsee.
A wide variety of events take place in Alpenwelt Karwendel throughout the year.
Guided hikes, local tours, brewery tours, creative workshops, theatre performances, music events, sporting events, children's programme and much more.
At carnival time, the Maschkeran in Werdenfelser Land are particularly spectacular. Witches, devils, bell ringers and other wild creatures take on the winter.
With a lot of noise and scary masks, here called larvae, they drive the cold season out of the valleys.
However, our guests need not fear these rude characters any more than they need fear rainy weather or cold temperatures.
Swimming pools, such as the Alpenbad in Leutasch or the Kristall Therme in Kochel, pamper you with wellness offers or sauna.
For the little ones, a visit to the swimming pool is always an experience anyway, where they can really let off steam in the pool or on the slides.
The foothills of the Alps and the Werdenfelser Land region magically captivated King Ludwig in his day. During his lifetime he created impressive buildings that you should not miss.
Neuschwanstein Castle in Schwangau, Linderhof Castle near Oberammergau or the mountain castle at Schachen reflect the eccentric nobleman and amaze us.
