Welcome to Upper Bavaria

The little artists' town of Murnau lies in the heart of the Bavarian uplands. A holiday paradise unlike any other in Germany. Enjoy the flair of the Upper Bavarian market community with the magical old district, the romantic, medieval castle and the neighbouring castle museum. But not only lovers of art and culture will find what they want here. In particular, the varied landscape of moors, lakes and Alpine peaks fascinates locals, guests and holidaymakers year after year.

Mountain-lovers enthusiastically turn their backs on the city of Munich, roughly 70 kilometres away, and devote themselves to the mighty peaks and ridges of the nearby Alpine chain: the view reaches to the Ammergau Alps, the Hörnle and the Ettaler Manndl in the south-west, the Wetterstein mountains with Zugspitze and Alpspitze in the south and the Ester mountains and the Walchensee mountains of Heimgarten and Herzogstand in the south-east. Not only mountain lovers, but also water fans will find what they want here: the bathing beaches and the idyllic bathing areas by the Staffelsee, Riegsee and Froschsee are among the warmest and most popular lakes in Bavaria. With its seven islands and the soft, swampy water, the Staffelsee, directly bordering upon the town's western edge, is unique in the region. The "MS Seehausen" offers unforgettable voyages of discovery for the whole family with its regular round trips between Murnau, Seehausen and Uffing.
