Lenggries, on the German Alpine Road, is just what you need if you’re looking for a winter getaway with plenty of sports activities. Go cross-country skiing, sledding, snowboarding, Nordic skating, or get on the cable car for fabulous views of the snow-clad countryside.
On the other hand, if you’re more of a summer person, you have it made with all the rafting, hiking, trekking, mountain climbing and biking paradise that this lovely landscape transforms into.
You could also check out the paragliding and hang gliding opportunities available. What better way to take in that stunning panorama? :-)
Lenggries being renowned in the area as a air health resort, you might be forgiven for thinking that’s it. Most certainly not.
The town has numerous historic attractions such as the St. Jakob’s Church with its towering steeple and Baroque exterior, the High Castle, the out of the way Forest Church, besides a number of old taverns, homes, and lime kilns that are quite historic in their own right. The Heritage Museum, the Old Post Office and the War Memorial might also be of immense interest to you.
Lenggries has a number of chalet restaurants tucked away at strategic spots which is just so convenient when all that activity and sightseeing raises hunger pangs the size of a horse. Indulge in fresh cooked local specialties prepared by local families who love to show off their expertise.
Lenggries has cultural scene that is as interesting as its leisure enterprises. The local flea market every second Saturday is something visitors wait to get going. There’s also the even more exciting night flea market.
Then there are the annual events such as the obligatory Christmas Market, the Village Food festival, the Falknerspektaculum which is a medieval market festival, and the Maypole in addition to the week-long Lenggries Festival.
