Known colloquially in Germany as the Queralpenstraße, this holiday road is not only one of the most scenic routes in all of Germany but also the oldest of its kind. The route winds exclusively through the Bavarian Alps and passes by some of Germany's most famous natural and manmade landmarks. Below is a list of sights that are bound to lure you on a wondrous journey along this world-famous Alpine roadway.


Schliersee

Located about 10km east of Lake Tegernsee, Lake Schliersee is smaller, more romantic and just as popular with day-trippers. In the summer, tourists flock to the villages dotted around the lake for swimming, walking, cycling, boat-trips and health spas, as well as for skiing in the winter. Despite all that, the lake has remained relaxed, because of heavy restrictions on construction at the water's edge, so that the walk around the lake is still relatively unspoilt. The lake is surrounded by high, forested mountains, which are perfect for hiking. At the end of an energetic day, several restaurants and pubs tempt visitors in to sample their delicious (fish) suppers. The easiest way of reaching Lake Schliersee is by train and information is available at the main railway station.

Herrenchiemsee New Palace

The Herrenchiemsee New Palace is one of the most intriguing places to visit on the island of Herreninsel. Drawing inspiration from the Palace of Versailles, the Neo-Baroque castle was built in the 19th Century. Commissioned by King Ludwig II of Bavaria, the palace was his way of showing admiration not only for the Palace of Versailles but also the French monarch King Louis XIV. Intricate marble carvings, chandeliers and gilded designs in the Rococo style ballrooms and bedrooms reflect the grandeur of the royal Bavarian life from the past. With sprawling gardens embellished by fountains and marble sculptures, the palace is bound to evoke awe among visitors. A must-visit, the palace is one of the best Bavarian attractions.

Chiemsee

Chiemsee refers to the freshwater lake in southern Bavaria as well as the small town of Chiemsee, which exists on two of the islands located in the lake itself. The islands, Herreninsel and Fraueninsel have small year-round populations but attract visitors during the summer. Herreninsel boasts a castle intended to be a replica of the Palace of Versailles, and Fraueninsel has a Benedictine Nunnery in which the nuns make a special liquor and marzipan. The lake is quite large-about 80 square kilometers (30 square miles) and offers all kinds of water sports during the warm season.

Königssee

Königssee, a natural gem, located within the Berchtesgaden National Park, is known for its glorious emerald-colored waters and the gorgeous panoramas it offers. Nestled within the majestic alpine regions of Bavaria, the freshwater lake stretches to almost 7.7 kilometers (4.8 miles) in length and 1.7 kilometers (1.1 miles) in width. No matter what time of year it is, Königssee makes for a beautiful view. In summers, this shining lake, an oasis of clear water, is flanked by thick stands of lush forests, while spring welcomes picturesque waterfalls that run into the lake. Fall turns the surrounding forests into a patchwork of reds and golds and the winter sees ice move across the surface of the lake, creating a natural skating rink. There's an electric launch that ferries visitors around the regal lake for those that do not have a boat of their own.
