The Bavarian Alps lie along the GermanAustrian border in a thin sliver of land roughly 300km long. Crammed into this area is some of the most spectacular walking and beautiful scenery that Germany has to offer. The region is also home to picturesque villages and towns, and to King Ludwigs world-famous fairy-tale castles. Reasonable prices and an excellent tourist infrastructure make the Bavarian Alps the perfect destination for an easy-to-organise and affordable walking holiday. Although Germanys small slice of the European Alps offers few peaks that compare in height to those in neighbouring Austria, the scenery is no less rewarding for walkers. Scenic highlights include the breathtakingly beautiful Knigssee, a pristine lake in the Berchtesgaden Alps, the romantic Breitach, Partnach and Hllental gorges, and the rack-railway trip to the summit of the Zugspitze, Germanys highest mountain. 85 walks, including graded mountain routes, gentler valley walks and two multi-day tours the range described by region from west to east practical information on transport and accommodation providers
