Rottach-Egern
Travel Guide

While taking a city trip to Rottach-Egern, the climatic health resort in the midst of the Bavarian Alps, experience the picturesque landscape around the emerald water of Tegernsee Lake.

Your travels to Rottach-Egern will lead you to the Tegernsee Valley, located approximately 30 miles south of the city of Munich. Apart from Tegernsee Lake, a number of smaller lakes which you can access via adventuresome hiking paths. First mentioned in records in the year 748, the city is composed of numerous idyllic villages and hamlets.

On the southern banks of Tegernsee Lake, you will find the most western district Egern. Be sure to visit the catholic Church of St. Laurentius, first mentioned in documents in the year 1111. In Rottach, the cultural centre of the city, you will find Seestrasse, a lively promenade with lovely boutiques and cosy restaurants. The former village of Staudach, centrally located within the municipality, has grown together with Rottach and Egern to one organic neighbourhood. Located in the Trinis district, nestled around the small Weissach River, is the base station of the Wallbergbahn gondolas which began operating in 1951.

Whilst on a city trip to Rottach-Egern, be sure to take a journey to the Wallberg, 1,884 yards in height. From its peak, you can enjoy breathtaking views of the Tegernsee Valley and the surrounding Mangfall Mountains. While taking in the vista, treat yourself to a culinary experience in the panoramic restaurant. During the winter months, take advantage of one of the longest natural toboggan runs in Germany for sledging adventures for the entire family.

When visiting Rottach-Egern on a city trip, be sure to take a placid excursion on the emerald Tegernsee Lake with the boats of the Bavarian Lakes Shipping Company. The boat moorings are located on Seestrasse in the centre of the city. The family-friendly ships MS Tegernsee and MS Rottach-Egern are also equipped with play facilities for children on the outside deck so that parents are able to enjoy a relaxing ride.

One experience not to miss in the summer during your mini-break to Rottach-Egern is a visit of the See- & Warmbad Pool. Enjoy sports and adventure pools with a water slide and a jet stream canal or take advantage of the lake with a well-kept sandy beach for swimming for the whole family.

Be sure not to miss the Kutschenmuseum carriage museum while enjoying your city trip to Rottach-Egern. The exhibition covers more than 700 square yards in the former Gsotthaberhof farmhouse and is sure to take you on a trip to the past while admiring old coaches, carriages, and sledges. Marvel at the Landauer Stagecoach from the year 1780, a very special exhibit. Children will enjoy the adventure stages which will take them on an journey of discovery.
