About Bad Wiessee

Fringed by snow-topped mountain peaks, a picturesque lake and the crisp, clean air of the Alps, Bad Wiessee has long been favoured by German holidaymakers looking to truly unwind. The area’s natural iodine-sulphur springs are alleged to have healing powers, there are hiking opportunities aplenty, and a choice of excellent hotels and guesthouses await. Fit for a range of tastes and budgets, the best places to stay in Bad Wiessee are attracting an increasingly international crowd — and deservedly so.

Set in the lush Tegernsee Valley, Bad Wiessee is nothing short of enchanting. Keen ramblers can follow hiking trails through wildflower meadows, verdant woodland and along the banks of the lake for beautiful views. Perfect for those who like a challenge, the golf course is reputedly the hardest in Upper Bavaria, whilst the enormous outdoor spa with spring water whirlpools, Kneipp hydrotherapy, a sauna and waterfall pools is ideal for relaxing. Enjoy boat trips out on the tranquil lake, a cable car ride promising enchanting vistas from atop the Wallbergbahn, and a lively casino. The relatively little-known Klosteranlage Tegernsee Church is a delight, with breath-taking painted ceilings — not to be missed!

Return to town for delicious dinners in family-owned eateries before resting your head at one of the best places to stay in Bad Wiessee. This is a wonderful opportunity to experience the charm of Bavaria’s hill towns, particularly in the spring and summer months.
