Traditions, alive and well

Forest & lake festivals in the region

The forest festivals are as much a part of Tegernsee Land as the Oktoberfest is to Munich or the pretzel is to beer. By the way, among locals the forest festivals are considered the best thing since the invention of beer! Young and old, guests and locals meet here. The forest festivals around Lake Tegernsee begin in mid-June and last all summer. Lake festivals are celebrated at Lake Tegernsee with good music, beautifully decorated boats on the water, delicious food and drink and spectacular fireworks. The highlights every summer are the Rottach-Egern lake festival, the Tegernsee lake festival and the Bad Wiessee lake festival.


Culture & music around Lake Tegernsee

In Rottach-Egern and Bad Wiessee, the "Kulturbühne" presents local artists with varied programmes. Young artists also find their stage at #wiesseerocks. And chamber music lovers are enthusiastic about the International Music Festival Kreuth, one of the highlights of the year in the musical life of the holiday region Tegernseer Land, for over 30 years. By the way, cabaret and cabaret art as well as numerous museums and cultural institutions also attract visitors. And of course, as a guest in the valley, you receive numerous discounts and benefits here with your Tegernsee Card!
