What to do and see in Bavarian Alps, Bavaria: The Best Sights & Landmarks

September 25, 2021 Milan Banda

Running along Germany’s southern border with Austria, the Bavarian Alps are one of the country’s most beautiful areas. Skiing is, naturally, one of the favorite pastimes. You’ll find Germany’s tallest mountain, Zugspitze, rising more than 9,700 feet in the Garmisch-Partenkirchen district (also a great hiking area in summer). Berchtesgadener Land (home to Watzmann, Germany’s third-highest peak) is another major ski area. Hochwanner, the country’s #2 mountain, is also in the Alps.

Schloss Linderhof

A bizarre, yet glamorous, castle built by King Ludwig II.

Reviewed By David190343 - Wetherby, United Kingdom

Ludwig II's admiration of Louis XIV was played out here in a spectacular fashion. Sumptuous furnishings and decor with gold leaf everywhere in a series of splendid rooms all within a jewel of a building and a lovely setting. Must be seen.

Oberammergau Church

This massive church is frequented visited by Catholic pilgrims.

Reviewed By gfrisch - San Antonio, United States

I visited this church on a rainy day in June.After passing through a grave yard a very old handcrafted door opens into the church.This is a Catholic Church,beautiful Wal paintings with a cupola painted and a Chrystal chandelier hanging down on a long chain.The seats are made of pine and you can tell they have been used for centuries.The altar is decorated in gold and silver and you can tell this is a very rich church.A very nice organ oversees the church and it powerful sound is nice to listen too.It is well worth it to take some time to visit this gem.

Pilatushaus

Reviewed By Alex35

Lovely house with spectacular outside paintings on the walls. It sits in a nice garden, so with the setting probably this is one of the prittiest painted buildings in the town. If your are in Oberammeragau, do not miss it - it in just in center of town.
