"I am staying here with my family from 21-28 December this year. We are visiting from Australia.  How can you get to the ski areas near the town? Do we need a car? Are there restaurants open on Christmas Day also?" (posted 04/18/2014)

From Schliersee, there is a bus to the skiing area Spitzingsee. The apartment owner you rent from will give you a tourist card with which you can use the bus for free. Another skiing area is the Sudelfeld in Bayrischzell, better reached by car (some 15 km). If you buy a ski pass for multiple days, you can use it in both skiing areas. Further info at www.alpenplus.com On Dec. 24, lots of restaurants are closed, but some will be open. We recommend making a reservation; that is probably best done when on location.

"What do we need to know if we wish to travel into Austria from Schliersee?" (posted 05/25/2014)

If you travel to Austria and use the motorway (Autobahn), you will need a "Vignette" (toll fee placard). That is very important because the penalty is very high!

It’s enough for you to carry your passport (for checks). If you use the autobahn, you will need to get a “Vignette” (toll fee placard). Those can be purchased after arrival. That’s all you need, except for a route description, perhaps.

We are arriving from Munich and heading onto Salzburg after our stay in Schliersee. Because we are picking up the car in Germany and dropping it off in Austria, the car rental will be very expensive and we are thinking of taking the train instead.

This all can celebrate, the admission for all visitors is free of charge. The weather is hard to predict, but it should normally not give too much snow, because it is the beginning of November, if at all. The streets should generally not pose a threat.

Schliersee, a small climatic health resort town on a lake of the same name, is beautifully nestled in the pristine mountain scenery of the Bavarian Alps. In any season, Schliersee in the district of Miesbach, is a popular international holiday destination near to Munich (Munich vacation rentals | Munich travel guide), which is only an hour's drive away.

Schliersee is situated between Tegernsee (Tegernsee vacation rentals | Tegernsee travel guide) and the Inn Valley, about 31 miles southeast of Munich, near the Austrian border. It lies at an altitude of 2,555 ft. on the shore of one of the most beautiful and clean bathing lakes. The excellent quality of the water in the Schliersee is due in large part to the construction of a system for purifying waste water from the area surrounding the lake. Already since the early 19th century, Schliersee built its reputation as an idyllic holiday destination. Nowadays Schliersee, together with the districts of Neuhaus, Fischhausen and Spitzingsee is among the most popular holiday regions in Bavaria. Hiking, mountain biking and water sports are all time favorites and comes winter, more then 15 miles of groomed ski runs, 7 cross-country trails and many natural toboggan runs turn Schliersee into a snow white paradise.

Things to See in Schliersee

In the Schlierseer Heritage Museum, home in one of the oldest houses in the village built around 1500; farm work and life of the last 500 years are lovingly displayed. Besides the living and sleeping rooms in the museum, you can also view the judge and prison rooms. The collection includes furniture and utensils and a collection of Schlierseer glass products. Another great museum not to be missed is the Markus Wasmeier Farm and Ski Museum on the south bank of the Schliersee. The museum displays farm life at the beginning of the 18th century. Old farms in the Bavarian Oberland were dismantled at the original site, restored and rebuilt on the museums site.

On the Vineyard Hill stands the Gothic chapel of St. George from the 14th century, featuring a baroque altar from 1624. From the vineyard one also has a beautiful view of the town and the lake. At the northern entrance to the village is the baroque church of St. Martin with the Jenner Wine Grave. Finally, located in the center of town you will discover the St Sixtus church with a Holy Trinity group by Erasmus Grasser and ceiling frescoes by Johann Baptist Zimmermann. The Schlierseer Farmer's Theater, founded in 1892, is the oldest theater of its kind in Bavaria, and with regular performances still going strong.

Why stay in Schliersee

In Schliersee, far away from big cities and the daily grind, holiday makers find the best ways for recreation and enjoy the beautiful nature. Extensive sports and leisure facilities, offered in both summer and winter, attract additional visitors to this region in the heart of the Bavarian Alps. The typical Bavarian charming village invites you to take a leisurely stroll, and enjoy the cafes and restaurants serving excellent local dishes. Schliersee is situated on the northeastern shore of the lake, offering picturesque views of the mountains, including the house-mountain Rotwand and the Wendelstein. Take a cable car and after a scenic drive you find yourself high in the mountains. Follow a trail leading you to mountain pastures with panoramic views and great food, and maybe use a toboggan run to return to the foot of the mountain. Go on a leisure boat tour, visit neighboring towns and sightseeing spots or pamper yourself in a spa.

Bavarian traditions are alive in Schliersee and happily shared with all guests. On top of the Folklore Evenings many sportive events and festivals are held throughout the year.
