You can enjoy walks on the valley ground and in the mountains and even climbing up to different elevations. You can choose a route to suit your taste, which will lead you to viewpoints where you can soak up the views of the gorgeous landscape.

In the surroundings there are 240 kilometres of hiking trails of any difficulty level, which lead you to mountain inns where you are served homemade products… You can also climb to the summit of Sonntagshorn, the highest peak of the region with a height of 1961 metres. All this may put you in the mood to enjoy some physical activity.


In the local area around the resort of Ruhpolding you can enjoy both mountain bike rides and leisurely bicycle tours. Mountain bikers can climb to wonderful sun terraces across Alpine pastures, whereas families can explore the countryside pedalling on level trails on the valley ground.

Our receptionists will be delighted to give you information about the most beautiful mountain bike routes and about bicycle hire services.

Besides, during your bicycle trip an encounter with cattle is not excluded …
