During your holiday, you will be staying in a 4-star hotel, located in the beautiful mountainous landscape at the foot of the Wendelstein mountain, in the German Alps. The hotel features a well-staffed restaurant, an indoor pool, and excellent spa facilities. Twin share is the norm but single supplements are available on all walks if requested.

You will be able to witness the everyday life that has been minutely recorded through the many household items, tools, and pieces of clothing displayed in various museums of local history, including cake tins, snuff boxes, and the infamous Bavarian "wolpertinger", a creature made up of the fur, claws, teeth, and horns of many different species.

You will discover the many sights around Lake Tegernsee, an area whose far-reaching history has left many awe-inspiring traces. Artists, musicians, statesmen, and nobility have lived in the fine houses that appeared after the first monks settled in the valley.

During your stops through the cities, you will be able to enjoy the "gemutlichkeit" (warm feeling) of a real beer garden experience, while sitting with the locals and savoring the fine regional beers. Your guides will take you on breathtakingly beautiful walks that will lead you along lake shores, through idyllic meadows, forests, valleys and into the surrounding mountains. Later on, you will visit the Hasenöhrl-Hof, which is a 500 years old Bavarian farm reconstructed into a "state of the art" event location where you will learn about the Bavarian food. During your cooking course here, you will learn many secrets of the Bavarian kitchen.

One of the many highlights of this holiday is the herbal walk with Wastl, a nationally recognized herbal educator. It is an interesting excursion into the rich world of wild herbs and fruits, as Wastl will tell you all about the medicinal and poisonous plants in the area, as well as the importance of water. He will teach you something about the history, culture and food culture, including the versatile use of herbs, shrubs and the trees. Afterwards, you will walk to Wastl's "Herb Kitchen" at the romantic Mangfall River, where he will prepare some of his finest concoctions and dishes like soups, wild vegetables and herbs, vinegar, soft drinks, jellies, salads and more.

Other activities include a visit to a distillery of Bavarian single malt whisky and a visit to an organic dairy farm, a ride on a horse carriage, a visit to an open-air museum, and a cooking class in a flower cladded traditional house.

The final day will take you to the Austrian city of Salzburg, as you travel along the beautiful Chiemsee. There are several islands in the lake, the most famous one being the Herreninsel. There, you can see a palace built by King Ludwig II in 1878, called Herrenchiemsee, which was never completed but was meant to be a replica of the Palace of Versailles.
