5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014 NEW

The lake and town of the same name are beautiful. The town itself is very traditional and can get busy during peak season and weekends. Lots of places to eat and drink. Boat hire etc on the lake, a walk around the lake will take a day at a slow pace. If you start from Neuhaus then Schliersee will be... More

We stayed at Tegernsee for two nights. Beautiful picturesque lake, with a great walk area around the lake. You can take boat tours on the lake. Don't miss a visit to the nearby Wallberg, an amazing view from this mountain top. An easy gondola ride will get you there. Panoramic mountain view like postcard and terrific views of the lake....

We we staying at Bad Toelz, nearby, and took an excursion to Tegernsee which is very popular with wealthy people from Munich - we were told that real estate prices are very high. The lake itself doesn't seem that unusual, but the houses and shops on the shore look very nice.

Perfect for weekend destination, summer and winter. Very nice hotels in the area, and very famous for the spa facilities. Would recommend it as one of the best sites in Bavaria.

The place is relaxing. We had a good time sitting in front of the lake. Then we drove uphill and found the prefect view to the lake.

As beautiful lake at the base of the Alps - great to relax, take a walk, picnic or stop at one of the cafe/bar restaurants for a drink.

Nice view, many Bavarian style beautiful buildings. Partly heavy traffic. Some paths only for pedestrians, and some parts at the sidewalk with heavy traffic.

We were recommended this area by a German friend who told us that this was one of favourite places in Germany. It is very hard to discover very much about the area from any guide book, and yet it is every bit a beautiful as Switzerland and much better value. The mountains, the lakes and the quaint buildings are all... More

Civility: People strolling along from another century, farmer's bringing their cut hay back to their barns at day end. Dislike: Bicyclists who, like Sun Valley, ID, seem to think they own the whole pathway-Caveat Stroller!

The Lake Tegernsee is a very nice lake surrounded by mountains and as with most waterbodies has an area of peace and tranquility.A nice range of hotels and restaurants of all different levels, including some really good ones. There are regular boat lines which offer nice tours on the lake. But, it's very important to have sunnny days. I hadn't.... More
