If Bavaria is known for anything aside from Oktoberfest, then it’s the picturesque mountains, lakes, and, of course, castles. Explore classic Bavarian excursions on this route, then travel a little further towards Austria. It starts at the Alpsee: the Alpsee is located close to the castle “Schloss Neuschwarnstein” and offers a series of clearly-marked hiking trails and beautiful surroundings. Next, we continue in the direction of the Plansee. In addition to its picturesque mountains and clear water, the lake has a scenic road that runs directly alongside the lake, providing an opportunity to combine impressive panoramas with the pleasure of driving. If needed, you can utilize the many stops along the road for a break with a view. The Ammerwald and its surroundings are directly northeast of the Plansee and offer wonderful winding roads that run through picturesque forests and rock crevices. In addition, there are a variety of trails waiting for eager hikers. The last stop on this route is the Eibsee, undoubtedly one of the most picturesque places in Germany.
