Winter Wonderland

Gentle Winter at Lake Tegernsee

In Upper Bavaria, it is hard to find a more beautiful place in winter than Lake Tegernsee region. This is where winter features everything that our guests long for in a skiing holiday: Impressive Mountain scenery, perfect ski slopes, cross-country skiing trails, sledding, winter hiking trails for walks or a snowshoe hike. All combined with the view of the glistening Tegernsee. This makes Parkhotel Egerner Höfe the perfect place for your active holiday in winter.

Snowshoeing & ski touring off-piste

In winter you can get to know Lake Tegernsee and the surrounding mountains on an extended snowshoe hike. All you need is functional clothing and snowshoes to set off on an exploratory tour. Blue skies and loose powder snow provide the best conditions for your tour. Then, when the snow crunches softly with every step and the view becomes ever more majestic, you are very close to paradise. Of course, ski touring enthusiasts also get their money's worth. Once you've reached the summit, it's time to head back down to the valley – ideally through fresh deep snow, of course. Our concierge Laura Breymann will be happy to inform you about the latest snow report and the current avalanche situation.

Rottach-Egern is the ideal starting point for your snowshoe hike or ski tour on numerous, wonderful snowshoe routes.

Our concierge Laura Breymann and her team have tips for snowshoe tours as well as information on all other winter activities and worthwhile excursion destinations ready for our guests. Feel free to make use of their broad local knowledge. They’ re happy to take your reservations, e.g. for snowshoe or ski touring equipment. Phone +49 (0)80 22 / 666-525; e-mail

Enjoy the peace and quiet while cross-country skiing

When your skis glide through the cross-country ski trail, the perfect moment has arrived. Winter enchants Lake Tegernsee and its valleys and turns them into a picture postcard winter wonderland setting. Kilometres of well-maintained cross-country ski trails through quiet, snow-covered valleys and up into the heights leave nothing to be desired. A network of more than 100 km of branching cross-country ski trails, a variety of different routes paired with the charming landscape, offer a fantastic experience for cross-country skiing and skating. The villages of Rottach-Egern, Gmund, Kreuth and Bad Wiessee offer trails from easy to difficult and the most beautiful panoramas of the villages, the Bavarian Pre-Alps and Lake Tegernsee.
