Walking Bavarian Alps
A guidebook to valley and mountain walks in the Bavarian Alps on the Austro-German border between Lake Constance and Berchtesgaden. Accessible from Munich Salzburg and Innsbruck these 85 routes range from half-day walks to 5-day hut-to-hut treks. Highlights include the K�nigssee and Breitach Partnach and H�llental gorges.
The Bavarian Alps lie along the German–Austrian border in a thin sliver of land roughly 300km long. Crammed into this area is some of the most spectacular walking and beautiful scenery that Germany has to offer. The region is also home to picturesque villages and towns and to King Ludwig's world-famous fairy-tale castles. Reasonable prices and an excellent tourist infrastructure make the Bavarian Alps the perfect destination for an easy-to-organise and affordable walking holiday.
Although Germany's small slice of the European Alps offers few peaks that compare in height to those in neighbouring Austria the scenery is no less rewarding for walkers.
Scenic highlights include the breathtakingly beautiful K�nigssee a pristine lake in the Berchtesgaden Alps the romantic Breitach Partnach and H�llental gorges and the rack-railway trip to the summit of the Zugspitze Germany's highest mountain.
