Circular Hike from Tegernsee Lake to Riederstein Chapel, Germany
Tegernsee is a lake in the Bavarian Alps in southern Germany. The lake is the centre of a popular recreation area 50 kilometres (31 mi) south-east of Munich. Resorts on the lake include the eponymous Tegernsee, as well as Bad Wiessee, Kreuth, Gmund, and Rottach-Egern.
The lake is some 6.5 kilometres (4.0 mi) in length, with a width of 1.4 kilometres (0.87 mi) and an area of 8.934 square kilometres (3.449 sq mi).
We start our tour in Tegernsee at the hiking car park.
Riederstein Chapel (Riedersteinkapelle) is a small neo-Gothic chapel on the 1207-meter-high Riederstein rock spur above Tegernsee Lake. From the chapel one has a wide view of the Tegernsee.
