Location between Lake Chiemsee and the AlpsThe holiday cottage is located on the beautiful outskirts of Bernau am Chiemsee, at the foot of the mountain Kampenwand – but it is nonetheless quite central (the centre of Bernau is 4 minutes’ walk away). You can set off on hikes directly from the doorstep of your holiday flat, as the nearest alpine pastures are in walking distance.
Lake Chiemsee is also an easy 30 minutes’ walk away. In summer, Bernau harbour on Lake Chiemsee is one of the regular stopping points of the boats operated by Chiemsee Schifffahrt. From here, you can go on boat trips to visit the other towns on Lake Chiemsee as well as the two islands.
Holiday resort: Bernau am ChiemseeThe climatic spa Bernau is located on the south-westerly shore of Lake Chiemsee at the foot of the Chiemgau Alps. So, this is the perfect spot for those who like to go for a mountain hike before breakfast.
But those favouring the lowlands are also sure to have a fantastic holiday here: to the east of Bernau am Chiemsee lies a vast moor, where peat once used to be extracted on a larger scale – today the area is the nature reserve Kendlmühlfilzen (between Bernau and Rottau). With its wonderfully even paths, the moor is ideal for hikes and cycling trips, and thanks to the lack of steep inclines, even children will enjoy a bike trip here. There are not many places around the world that are as tourism-experienced as Bernau: due to its great location and healthy air, the military commanders of ancient Rome used to send their soldiers here to relax and recuperate.
