Bavaria may be the most picturesque part of Germany. Beautiful Alps, crystal clear mountain lakes, huge forests, amazing waterfalls, fast rivers, marvellous green meadows, and so much more can be found here. Here you can enjoy the beauty of nature at every turn. At the Alpenwelt Karwendel region, you'll find about 700 km of hiking trails of various difficulty levels. This region includes picturesque towns like Mittenwald, Krün, and Wallgau. Some of the best trails here are the Isar nature trail and the Magdalena Neuner panoramic trail. Take a cable car ride to the Kranzberg Mountain or a gondola lift to Karwendel. This will shorten your trip and also provide you with some amazing views. Don't miss the chance to see the Buckelwiesen hummocky meadows either.

Ruhpolding is one place well worth a visit for all hiking lovers. On many trails, you'll even find some of the numerous alpine huts, where you can rest or just have a snack.

Upper Bavaria is home to the picturesque rock formations Zahmer Kaiser and Wilder Kaiser. Altmühltal Nature Park is one more place to get away from the daily grind and enjoy a nature walk. This place is popular among families and active holidaymakers. One of the best choices here is Brünnstein Mountain. Hiking trails are well marked and the views are amazing.

Sudelfeld offers a great variety of hiking trails which lead to the famous Wendelstein. Some of Germany's biggest waterfalls, cavern trails, the Auerburg ruins, and the Grauer Stein natural monument are really worth a visit. Oberaudorf Hocheck mountain has lots of fun to offer to everyone. Aside from amazing mountain hiking trails, you'll find a 1 km summer toboggan run as well. Fun for all the family is guaranteed. The Wendelstein Ringling bus travels only from May to October, while the similar Ortsbus-Wanderbus can take you to Sudelfeld from June to September. On board these buses, you'll find all the beautiful places on your Bavarian wishlist. Come and discover much more on your own.
