Hiking & Jogging
Active Holidays on Lake Chiemsee
Hiking trails in the magnificent Chiemgau countryside will take you up into the mountains or through nature reserves around the various Chiemgau lakes.
In Chiemgau, we can justifiably claim to have the right hiking trail for every requirement, irrespective of whether it's a good climb or along the flat. Numerous pubs and beer gardens are lovely places for a refreshment stop on route.
Jogging & Nordic Walking
Gut Ising has a well-signed 4.5-km jogging trail, which, of course, you are also welcome to walk at a leisurely pace. The trail passes through lush green meadows, along an avenue of ancient linden trees, with views of our local mountains.
Our reception staff will be pleased to explain the route to you, help you with hiking maps and offer suggestions for tours.
Cycling around Lake Chiemsee
Looking for a cycling holiday? Then Gut Ising and the Chiemgau area in particular is just the place. In addition to the attractive well-developed cycling trails in Chiemgau, the lakeside cycleway is also highly recommended. It is 60 kilometres in length and, because it's a circular route, you can start anywhere on Lake Chiemsee.
The cycleway around Chiemsee has only a few short inclines and is therefore also well suited to less athletic people and families with children.

The wonderful countryside in the foothills of the Bavarian Alps will tempt you to extensive cycle tours, with plenty of traditional pubs and beer gardens providing attractive places to stop on route.
If you would like to hire a touring bike, an eBike or a mountain bike, we will be pleased to organise this with one of our partners.
TIP: Our reception staff will be pleased to provide information about different types of cycle tours.
Bathing at Lake Chiemsee
The north-east shore of Lake Chiemsee has been home to spa resorts since Roman times. Today, Chiemsee is still a popular destination for bathers. The conditions for swimming, bathing and splashing about are ideal.
One particular advantage of our hotel is the private access to the lake with our own beach.
