Our suggestion of a car ride to the Alps, starting at our b&b in Diessen.

The Bavarian Alps are both a winter wonderland and a summer playground. Our summer tour will leave enough room for individual preferances - guests can choose among several building blocks - the weather and the personal fitness will decide what to choose.
We leave Diessen to the east, pass the Lake Starnberger See and within 1 ½ hours we reach Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany’s top alpine resort, which has still kept some of the charm of an ancient village.


Beside a walk through this touristic town - venue of the 1936 Winter Olympics - guests may:

  • relax at the Lake Eibsee with a breathtaking view at the Zugspitze, Germany’s tallest mountain (9720 feet)
  • take the cog railway Zugspitzbahn towards the Zugspitzplatt
  • take the Eibsee Cable car
  • hike through the Partnachklamm Gorge
  • take a chairlift to the peak Eckbauer.
  • Following the Alpine Road to the East we will pass Mittenwald the most beautiful town in the Bavarian Alps with its painted houses and churches and the violin making museum.
We still follow the Alpine Road for a while and arrive in the spa town Bad Tölz with its healing waters - an other example of artistically painted medieval houses.

Rather late in the evening guests get back to Diessen - somewhat exhausted but full of long-lasting impressions.
