Lake Chiemsee, Bavaria's "sea", covers 80 square kilometres and is the largest lake in Bavaria. Set against the Chiemgau Alps it is excellent for sailing and windsurfing as well as a popular swimming spot. On its islands are one of "mad" King Ludwig's fairytale castles and a 1,200 year old Benedictine abbey.

The Bavarian Forest is the oldest national park in Germany. Nature has been allowed a free rein in this unspoilt highland region, 95 per cent of which is covered by forest. Visitors are warmly welcomed to experience the fascinating process of an ever-evolving forest wilderness at close hand. A network of clearly marked footpaths, cycle routes and cross-country ski trails offers visitors plenty of opportunity to enjoy the beauties of the national park in summer and winter.

The Berchtesgaden National Park in south-eastern Germany is one of the oldest nature reserves in the Alps. It offers visitors the opportunity to experience an enchanting part of the Berchtesgaden Alps where nature has developed freely, mostly without human influence. Walking in this stunning high mountain country is an unforgettable experience, and a visit to the renowned Lake Königssee is not to be missed.
