Sailing on Lake Tegernsee – deep blue waters in the middle of the Alps

Cast off & enjoy
Sailing on Lake Tegernsee will have you coming back for more. The Foehn (a strong and renowned Alpine downwind) and thermal winds that come up in summer, make the lake a surprisingly first-class sailing area. When the Bavarian sky shines blue with fluffy white clouds, sailing enthusiasts love to stay on the sailboat until sunset.

A sailing holiday right on the doorstep of the luxury Parkhotel Egerner Höfe at Lake Tegernsee, surrounded by the breath-taking backdrop of the mountains: this is what luxury in the middle of nature feels like when staying at our boutique hotel at Lake Tegernsee. Feel the wind and the freedom while sailing on one of the most beautiful Bavarian lakes.

Lake Tegernsee as a sailing area

Insiders know that Lake Tegernsee is often the scene of international regattas and a challenging sailing area in some conditions. Sailing enthusiasts appreciate the south wind that blows constantly from Egern Bay up to Gmund in the morning. On some days in summer, it reaches wind forces of between two and four Beaufort. This is one reason why sailing in front of Tegernsee's dream scenery is so much fun. Private motorboats are prohibited, by the way, another good reason for the many sailing boats on the lake.
