Hiking & Biking

Many hiking trails and bicycle routes of various levels of difficulty start right at our hotel. Relax on a walk on flat paths through the Kocheler moor or along the lake promenade. Explore the idyllic foothills of the Alps by bike or with a hiking stick. Of course, we would be happy to advise you on planning your excursions and hikes. You can get hiking and cycling maps as well as other information material at the reception.

You can find a good overview of tours of all levels of difficulty at the >>Tölzer hiking tips (DE) and biking tips (DE) or in the tour portal of the >> Karwendel Alps.

Kristall Trimini

The Kristall Trimini was reopened in 2017 after a major expansion phase. The family and active section is ideal for families and children. In addition to a 25m indoor pool, there are many pools and ponds as well as an all-weather slide. In summer the 27m long outdoor pool with diving tower, the 160m long outdoor slide and the large sunbathing lawn with lake access are open.

For all wellness and sauna fans, we recommend the new thermal baths and the large sauna area. On 12,000 square meters you will find 5 different saunas, steam baths, spacious relaxation zones and much more.

Tip: The Trimini can be reached by car from the hotel in around 5 minutes and on foot in around 20 minutes.

Motor boating on lake Kochel

With the “MS Herzogstand” you can take off directly from the Hotel and circle the entire Kochelsee once. Of course, sections of the route to the Walschensee power plant, the monastery village of Schlehdorf, the Trimini or the Franz Marc Museum are also possible.

A gondola takes you in just 4 minutes to one of the most beautiful Bavarian mountains – the Herzogstand. From the mountain station it is only an easy 10 minute walk to the restaurant. From here you can go on a hike to the summit (approx. 45 minutes) or take the challenging route over the ridge trail to Heimgarten.

Movie set: Wiking village “Flake”

In the summer of 2008 the film “Wickie and the strong men” was shot by Michael “Bully” Herbig at Walchensee. The municipality of Kochel rebuilt it in Walchensee. A must for all Wickie fans!
