The summer in the upper Isar Valley begins on the eve of St. John's day as the mountain fire diminishes.

Then the bathing season begins in the many lakes, the bikers capture the mountain bug (Karwendel and Wetterstein are by far the best spots for mountain bikers in southern Bavaria regions) and backpacks are fastened up and down the country all heading for one of the innumerable mountain tours in the Alpine region Karwendel. Now is Wiesmahd time, at this time you can experience the spicy hay fragrance during an evening stroll. The cows, goats and horses are on summer vacation in the mountain pastures.

Now is also the time of beer tents, garden and park festivals, all the kinds of celebration that the people of Wallgau understand perfectly.

Summer tips:

  • Walk to Ziegenherde between Lautersee and Ferchensee, the Ludwig exhibition on the Schachen (August 25), visit the Alpine garden at King Ludwig's hunting lodge on Schachen, visit the nature centre on Karwendel.
  • Treat yourself to a relaxing and memorable vacation, away from the everyday hustle and bustle. Recharge your batteries and enjoy the uniquely beautiful situation which Wallgau has to offer.
  • An ideal holiday destination and not only for hikers - there is hardly a sport that cannot be practised with us. Soiern, Karwendel and Wetterstein mountains are far and wide the best place for mountain bikers.
  • Also golfers will get their money's worth and enjoy the beautifully situated 9-hole golf course in Wallgau. Nestled in a stunning natural environment, it represents a challenge for any golfer.
