Waging am See is a small, cozy place with about 5,000 inhabitants with a nice center. Waging is situated on the warmest lake in Bavaria. For cyclists, hikers, and swimming enthusiasts, the lake and its surroundings are a beautiful area to go on vacation. The mountains are very close, but you are far enough away that you can escape the hustle and bustle of places like Berchtesgaden and Rupolding. Waging is also interesting in the winter, because within 30 minutes you can be at the ski resort. However, it is located in a quiet environment. Also culturally Waging has much to offer, and in the summer, there is a summer music festival and many sporting events in the area, as well as high-class culture, eg the Salzburg Festival and the Jazz Festival in Burghausen are within 25 kilometers. Thus, Waging is worth the trip at any time of the year.

As a child, I liked to go to the Waging Lake, because it is very warm and has a lovely location. For walks and bike rides, there are many opportunities, and you can take a break in beautiful beer garden. For example, Weibhausen. And if you want to be in a city, Traunstein is very close or Tittmoning, Burghausen. Salzburg is not far. Maybe you can still get accurate advice from the tourist information office in Traunstein. Info@stadt-Traunstein.de Phone 049 - (0) 861-65-294. In any case, I wish you a wonderful holiday in Bavaria. Irmgard Eichler www.villa-Allerlei.de

Travel Insider Tips for Waging am See

Waging am See Overview

Waging is located west of the Waginger See. The name "am See" ("on the lake") is somewhat misleading: due to the lowering of the Tiroler Achen river, which originates from the southern end of the lake near the town of Petting, the water level declined about 6.5 feet (2.0 m) in 1867, which led to Waging being located away from the waterside.

Things to See in Waging am See

The Waginger See, which is 3.9 miles (6.3 km) in length and 1.1 in breadth, boasts several camping areas such as the Strandcamp ("Beach Camp"), the Schwanenplatz ("Swan Spot") and Camping Gut Horn. In the surroundings are several opportunities for many kinds of leisure activities: hiking, alp and mountain tours, fishing, boating, golf, winter sports, mini golf, sailing and surfing, skating, traditional natural gymnastics, facilities for hydropathic treatment, tennis hall and court, beach volleyball, and soccer.

Waging is the initial point for the ancient Bavarian cycling trail, and is part of the pilgrimage route "Benediktweg" (leading to places of interest about Pope Benedict XVI), which was opened in August 2005.

More about the History of Waging am See

Waging am See was already mentioned in a deed in 740. Due to the so-called lower saline road, which led from Reichenhall to Wasserburg am Inn through Waging, the village was a prosperous place already in medieval ages. Back then Waging belonged to the Salzburg prince-bishopric. In the 14th century it was granted the right to hold markets. In 1685, Waging became the domicile of a Salzburgian court of law, became Austrian in 1805 for a short time, and belongs to Bavaria since 1810. Since then, Waging developed into a prominent leisure and vacation spot.

After 1945, many expellees settled in Waging. After the German local government reform in 1972, Waging became part of the Traunstein district. The localities Gaden, Otting, Freimann, and Tettenhausen were suburbanized. The election of Sepp Daxenberger as mayor in 1996 caused a stir, since he was the first mayor of the Green party in Bavaria.
