Outstanding overall experience

The Zugspitze juts self-confidently from the eponymous mountain range in southern Bavaria and as Germany’s highest mountain is famous well beyond the country’s borders. Its popularity epitomizes the need people have to get some distance from their everyday lives and “rise above things”. The spectacular ascent on the record-breaking Cable car Zugspitze marks the first highlight. Having reached an altitude of 2,962 metres in comfort, visitors are able to enjoy extensive views over 400 mountain peaks. Anyone wanting to experience glacial ice and snow up close can choose between sporty and laid-back activities – in winter and high summer. The Panorama 2962 restaurant at the summit stands for the best prospects on a scenic and culinary level. It will serve typical specialties from the Alpine region, garnished with rich panoramic views. The cogwheel train then takes you back in comfort to Garmisch-Partenkirchen – the perfect opportunity to wave farewell to the peak and to reflect on the experiences of your round trip.

The monastery is home of a brewery and a distillery where the famous beers and liqueurs from Ettal are carefully crafted. Monastic hospitality can be found in the abbey hotel “Ludwig der Bayer” with its regional cuisine, the historic ambience for conferences and incentives and the wellness oasis “Vitalia”.

Swarovski Kristallwelten – Moments of wonder

Swarovski Kristallwelten – Moments of wonder


Daniel Swarovski, who founded his crystal-cutting company in Wattens, Tyrol, in 1895, had a vision from the very outset – to view crystal not merely as a material, but as an inspiration. With this vision in mind, Swarovski Kristallwelten (Swarovski Crystal Worlds) was opened in 1995 for the one hundredth anniversary of Swarovski as an homage to customers and fans of crystal.

Ever since, Swarovski Crystal Worlds has been inspiring moments of wonder. Originally conceived by multimedia artist André Heller, many famous artists from the worlds of art and design have interpreted crystal here – each in their own particular way. They created concepts of space and experience from the sparkling material that, after several transformations and expansions, now extends to more than 7.5 hectares. Throughout the year, both indoors and outside, they offer visitors of all ages fascinating impressions that turn a visit into an experience for all senses with specially created fragrances. Swarovski Crystal Worlds has become famous worldwide, not least due to its unique appearance – the head of the Giant that is visible from far and wide. More than 16 million people have visited this magical place that is one of the most popular attractions in all of Austria.

SALZBURG – Stage of The World

SALZBURG – Stage of The World


This city is music. As the birthplace of W. A. Mozart, as the stage for the famous and glamourous Salzburg Festival and as the film location for “The Sound of Music”, Salzburg is known all over the world and worth a visit every season. On a closer look, you can find the perfect harmony of nature and architecture, art and culture, tradition and modernity. The soft green city mountains surrounding the baroque center invite to a picturesque and romantic stroll ending in one of the many cozy beergardens from spring to fall.

Also, Salzburg was seemingly created to conjure up a fairy-tale atmosphere in winter! The Christmas markets, Advent concerts and folk customs charm and mesmerize visitors to the magical City of Mozart.

The Salzburg Card is your key to the city of Salzburg. It provides free admission to all sights and museums in Salzburg and serves as your ticket for all public transportation in the city.

Chiemsee Schifffahrt

Chiemsee Schifffahrt

A visit offering many attractions...

Lake Chiemsee is easily accessible and is an excursion that combines many attractions and destinations: a steam railway, trip on a paddle steamer, island hopping, the magnificent palace of the fairytale King Ludwig II, a monastery, fishing village, beautiful coves and picturesque landscapes.

Like a delightful painting. The Lake. The islands. The mountains. Picture-book Bavaria!

The Royal Palace is about a short walk from the pier. The Palace attracts visitors like a magnet, with its grandiose Great Hall of Mirrors, many fascinating state rooms, breathtaking marble State Staircase and surprising "magic table". The character of Fraueninsel is completely different to that. It is smaller, densely populated and compact. A real idyllic and romantic jewel. Escape the hustle in the 1200-year-old Frauenwörth monastery. A number of restaurants and cafés serve refreshments and the island's fishermen offer freshly smoked whitefish and other delicacies. Where better to enjoy a voyage of discovery?
