The favorite lake of the Bavarians is the Tegernsee. The foothills of the Alps come very close to the mountain lake. Between the shores, sailboats and small ships make their way on the deep blue water. In summer, the bathing spots and beaches attract sun-seekers. Tegernsee hotels offer Bavarian hospitality. In the town of Tegernsee, the lakeside promenade and the monastery of the same name attract visitors. Exclusive Rottach-Egern is home to the mansions of Munich's high society.
