Ruhpolding

With its location in the middle of the Chiemgau-Area, Ruhpolding offers the ideal starting point for activities and excursions of all kinds.

Whether a hiking tour in the Alps, cycling around Lake Chiemsee or on a cultural trip to Salzburg, Rosenheim or Munich, our region has a lot to offer.

While in summer the fabulous nature and the almost Mediterranean climate characterised by the foehn wind attract visitors, in the winter months the peaks and valleys turn into a wonderful snowy landscape and invite you to go skiing, cross-country skiing and winter hiking tours.

With just under 7,000 inhabitants, the village lies idyllically in the sunny valley at the foot of the Rauschberg and opens up a view into the Bavarian Alps.

Historically, the region around Lake Chiemsee has always played a very special role. From the wondrous world around Ludwig II. Herren-Chiemsee fairytale castle, over the history of the salt mines, the woodcutters and raftsmen, to the processing of the horrors of National Socialism in the Obersalzberg documentation, the span of historically relevant places in the south-east of Bavaria is large . While you can experience the culture and history of the region in unique museums, open-air exhibitions, places of learning and remembrance, the landscape offers an incomparable combination of extensive forest, mountain and lake areas.
