Vacation in Chiemgau

A world of experience

Visitors say that the changing character of the landscape and the outgoing nature of the local people are the two most important reasons to spend their holidays here. The transition of the countryside from the Chiemgau Alps (up to 2000m high) to lake and river landscapes molded by glacial forces (Chiemsee and Waginger See), is appealing and idyllic.

13 nature reserves and 10 protected areas cover one fifth of the district of Traunstein and show the efforts of combining tourism with nature. The favorite activities of the guests include hiking, mountain climbing, cycling tours or mountainbiking and all kinds of watersports. (Motor boats are prohibited though.)

Health and wintersport resorts like Inzell, Ruhpolding and Reit im Winkl offer the most extensive holiday programmes. Achental, a hiker's paradise, abounds with well frenquented alps. Waginger See is an inexpensive summer resort, which it is only a short distance away from the Mozart City of Salzburg (approx. one hours drive). The cultural offers include colorful costume festivals with musical accompaniment, traditional horse rides and the "Musiksommer zwischen Inn und Salzach", a very popular music festival ranging from classical music to Jazz. Several specialized museums have been built besides the museums of local history; particularly popular with children is the "Natural History and Mammoth Museum" in Siegsdorf. There are 12 signposted cycling paths designed for both cyclists and hikers - the Chiemgau can be explored for days on end.
