What and Where is Tegernsee?
Tegernsee is a tourist town located in the Bavarian Alps with a very popular lake unsurprisingly known as Lake Tegernsee. It’s roughly an hour drive south of Munich, so if you’re flying in that may be the best airport.
There are a few attractions around the town such as a monastery and other historical sites. Honestly, there is a lot of history to this town, but that’s no surprise as it’s been around since the 6th century AD.
For outdoors enthusiasts, the lake offers a base camp to plenty of relaxing hikes in the area. For beer lovers, some of the best breweries in Germany!
Despite all the history to experience and beer to drink in Tegernsee, the main destination for visitors is the lake!
All of these attractions are great, but where do you camp in Tegernsee?
Campingplatz Tegernsee? Where to camp?
While you can theoretically plop a tent anywhere, I only include ASCI surveyed sites to ensure the things recommended met safety standards.
Because of this, there is only one ASCI listed campsite in Lake Tegernsee, and that it Campingplatz Wallberg. The campsite has many of modern-day amenities, including wifi coverage, an on-site restaurant, and allows dogs (on leads)!
What to Bring Camping at Lake Tegernsee
While Campingplatz Wallberg offers many amenities, there are still a few things to bring with you.
To camp on the site, you’ll need some form of ID, an ASCI ID card would suffice.
Additionally, having a tent should go without saying, unless you’ll be in a camper. After that, some on hand cash (euros) will help in case of emergencies and the main necessities like bottled water and food. Sure, there’s a restaurant, but the campsite also allows grilling!
Whether you’re going for hiking or sightseeing in Tegernsee, be safe and enjoy your time!
The entire area has so much to offer that it’s sure to be a memorable time.
