Bavarian Alps: Hiking the Salt Trail

  • Follow the Salzalpensteig, a historic salt trail, which winds its way through the Bavarian Alps
  • Hike from the turquoise shores of Lake Chiemsee to the alpine glacier lake of Königsee
  • Walk through the spectacular and wild Weissbachschlucht gorge
  • Discover monasteries, fresco churches and picture-postcard villages, unique to Bavaria
  • Relax at the end of the day with a stein of locally brewed beer and delicious Apfelstrudel
Follow the Salzalpensteig trail deep into the Bavarian and Berchtesgaden Alps, discovering the rich history of salt mining which has shaped the region. Off the beaten track you will explore the quieter, idyllic side of Bavaria as you walk through small traditional Bavarian villages steeped in local tradition. Walk on the inn to inn alpine trail from Lake Chiemsee, Bavaria's largest lake and popular weekend destination for the locals, to Lake Konigsee, a lake buried deep in the Bavarian Alps, where the majestic rock cliffs of the Watzmann Mountain tower over its emerald green shores, offering fascinating scenery. This trail was voted one of Germany’s most beautiful walking trails and marries panoramic views of the Alps with the wild and romantic Weißbachschlucht gorge, rich local history and the most picturesque German alpine villages, renowned for their beauty.
