Nature paradise with history.

Nature-lovers and explorers will find lots to do in the foothills of the Bavarian Alps. Stein Castle is one of the most important castles in Germany with an upper house in the rock face. Or would rather have a dip in Chiemsee or go on an excursion to Munich?

In the Middle Ages, a noble family built Germany’s largest cave castle in Stein. It is said that this is where the robber knight, Heinz von Stein, later set out on his raids.

The third largest lake in Germany is also known as the “Bavarian Sea”. It's well worth taking a trip on it with the paddle steamer.

“We manage to get along with each other on the courses in a peaceful, happy and tolerant manner – so you think to yourself: it's not that difficult and it must be possible for the rest of the world to manage!”
