The German Alpine Road Trip follows the oldest touring road in Germany. You will be driving through the foothills of the Bavarian Alps, passing by romantic castles, one pretty town after the next and plenty of lakes with refreshing clear water (and it’s drinkable, too!)

Known as Deutsche Alpenstrasse in German this road trip offers you a lot of variety. One day you are taking a cable car to the top of Germany’s highest mountain Zugspitze, the next day you are visiting fairy-tale Neuschwanstein Castle. We point out the best picnic spot on the Alpine meadows, tell you where to go for a boat ride and when to swim in a crystal clear Alpine lake.

What city to start from?

This tour starts in the town of Lindau (Lake Constance). And ends at lake Königssee – outside of Berchtesgaden.

How much time do I need?

This road trip is presented to you as a 4 day tour. You can easily spend an entire week (or more!) touring Bavaria along this curvy mountain road There is so much to see and do – it might get difficult to pick and choose.

I don’t have that much time available. Is there a shorter version of this drive?

If you don’t have that much time available we recommend to read through the entire driving tour first. Then decide which portion of the trip sounds most appealing to you (is it castles? high mountains? farm-house restaurants? scenery?) and then get on the raod! The tour can easily be divided up into smaller sections so you can pick up another section on your next visit to Germany.
