This guidebook of walks explores Germany's Bavarian Alps. Lying along the German-Austrian border in a thin sliver of land roughly 300km long, this area contains some of the most spectacular walking and beautiful scenery that Germany has to offer. 85 graded walks explore mountain landscapes, wild mountain gorges and alpine meadows as well as the region's picturesque villages, opulent baroque churches and fairy-tale castles like Neuschwanstein. Superlatives include the northernmost glacier in the Alps (Blaueis), Germany's largest ice cave (Schellenberg) and its highest mountain, the Zugspitze. There is an outline of two multi-day tours and some shorter valley walks of less than 3hrs are also included. Relaxing beer gardens, colourful local traditions and excellent tourist infrastructure further add to the region's charms, and make the Bavarian Alps the perfect destination for a walking holiday.
