Magical tips for families

  • In the Marquartstein fairytale theme park children follow in the footsteps of Harry Potter and Co. and create magic potions from herbs before charging down the summer toboggan run
  • Meanwhile, on the Herreninsel island on Lake Chiemsee, which is home to Herrenchiemsee Castle, which was built by the famous King Ludwig II, a fairytale walk invites you to discover the island.

Bathing fun

In summertime, you can find beautiful bathing spots (German) around Lake Chiemsee and the 50 other lakes in the region; whilst Übersee am Chiemsee is even home to a sandy beach and high ropes course. The heated pool in Traunstein awaits with a huge slide and a water mushroom. Or how about a raft ride on the River Alz


The Chiemgau is an old farming region, so why not choose to relax together with the animals in the heart of some idyllic natural countryside, whilst also learning more about rural life. A holiday on a farm in the Chiemgau region gives children the chance to take their Bambini Diploma. You will be amazed by how motivated children can be when it comes to feeding the chickens and grooming the horses!

Out and about in nature – cycling and hiking

  • A bike ride on one of the family-friendly cycle routes is a pleasure for young and old. The Chiemsee Circular Route provides plenty of places for you to stop and admire the view, to eat an ice cream, or to jump into the lake.
  • Walks through moors and fenlands as well as to the mountain peaks and alpine huts on the Chiemgau alpine meadows put a smile on even children's faces; whilst the many cable cars make it child's play to reach the summits.

Family fun whatever the weather – leisure pool or museum?

Indoor swimming pools and spas, such as the Badepark in Inzell, invite you to warm up, especially in wintertime and when the weather is bad.

Our family-friendly museums also make for an interesting visit:

The Wood Workers Museum in Ruhpolding offers an insight into the life of a carpenter as well as into a bygone era, when the salt works were still fuelled by wood. Your children will become mammoth researchers in the Natural History and Mammoth Museum in the picturesque Siegsdorf; whilst the Maxhütte in Bergen gives you the chance to find out more about the Iron Age!

Chiemgau – The family holiday that ticks all the boxes!
