The big lake looks nice everyday but not in cloudy sky. You visit and stay here ,the hotel or resort will give a card to you that you can use for free every transportation and gymnasium . It is peaceful .It is easy to find local supermarket and reasonable price. I love it.

We sat on the edge of the lake for hours with beautiful lawns and loads of little cafes and ice cream parlours.

During your trip to south Bavaria you should not miss to visit the Tegernsee. The lake is well protected by the mountains. Do not miss to klimb a bit and enjoy the beautiful view.

We went to Bad Weissee on the banks of Lake Tegernsee to meet friends to go hiking in the hills. A simply beautiful place - stunning views, clean and litter free with friendly people.

Typical Bavarian scenery (not always visible!). Ferries from place to place, possible to walk round it, although some sections are on the road. Cake shops on the way.

Unlike other lakes in Bavaria, Lake Tegernsee is just the right size to explore. Day time and night time, both sides of the lake can easily been seen.
