Schliersee Things to Do

  • by UK_Man Updated Apr 28, 2011

    It is possible to stroll around the lake at Schliersee - the paths are flat and on the level, and the overall distance is about 7km but it is possible to get the local ferry/water taxi to one end of the lake at Fischausen and then walk back, which is what we did.

    The path follows the local train line along the edge of the lake and has beautiful views of the surrounding mountains.

    You can get a local map which shows all the paths, but be careful as we found that one track had been built over and so we had to backtrack about 1K.

Schliersee Restaurants

  • by UK_Man Updated Apr 27, 2011

    We visited Schliersee over Easter 2011 and ate here on Good Friday.

    The restaurant wasn't busy but had a charming atmosphere.

    The menu didn't have an English translation but as the waitress spoke a little English that wasn't a problem - I had the Jaegerschnitzel (pork steak in a creamy mushroom sauce) and my wife had plain breaded schnitzel - both were excellently cooked and very tasty.

    The owner and chef made a point of speaking to each customer to get their opinions on his food - the fact we didn't speak German and he didn't speak English didn't get in the way of us expressing pleasure at his food though.

    The price was also good - each meal cost 9.50 euro, and with beers at 3.50 this was a good find.

    We would recommend a visit - we are trying to return on our last night it was so good.

    Favorite Dish: The Jaegerschnitzel was fantastic - the mushroom sauce it is served with was rich and very salty - perhaps too salty for some - and loaded with so many mushrooms. And it came with home made potato croquettes and salad. Beautiful.

    It is easy and inexpensive to get to Schliersee by train from Munich Airport.

    The train station is underground betweeen Terminals 1 and 2 - as you leave the building it is well signposted.

    The ticket machines have an option for English - you need to select the local offers button, then the Bavaria ticket and follow the instructions on screen. This currently costs 29 Euro for up to 5 adults travelling together plus children. Before you use the ticket you need to write your surname on the ticket - if you don't the ticket inspectors could make you pay again!

    You can get any of the trains at the airport to Munich's central station where you need to go to platforms 33 or 34. When the train arrives you need to go right to the front of the carriages, look for the ones with 'Bayrischzell' over the door. This is important as the train splits at Holzkirchen, one section going to Schliersee the other two to Tegernsee and Lenggries. If you are unsure, ask the train staff and listen to the announcements which are made in both German and English.

    If you are stopping anywhere in and around Schliersee you will have to pay a tourist tax, currently 2.00 Euro per person per night.

    For this you get a Visitor's Pass which gives several discounts in the area - if you have a car you can park for free anywhere, you can get any of the local buses that go to places like Spitzingsee, Fischbachau or Hausham for free, and you get discunt is some shops and restaurants, and discount on the local cablecar to Schlierbergalm.

    The buses are regular, but they stop around midday for an hour or so, and the last bus back seem to be about 17.30.
