The Rosenheim District faces Austria, nestled in the Chiemgau — an area of alpine foothills and morainic countryside, noteworthy for timber, iron deposits and salt production, as well as horse breeding. You are certain to enjoy the profusion of hills, grasslands, forests, lakes and fens that make this a natural paradise.

The city of Rosenheim is, politically, not part of the surrounding rural district. From here, you can easily reach Kolbermoor to the west, where festivals are held frequently, including the Town Festival each May, a Metal Forging Fair in summer, and the lively Christmas Market at year’s end.
Further west, you will find quiet market towns and quaint countryside communities. These include Bruckmühl and Feldkirchen-Westerham, as well as Bad Aibling with its mineral springs and curative bathing in peat pulp.
To the east, by contrast, cozy little resorts throng the western shores of expansive Lake Chiem, including Gstadt and Breitbrunn. Tours by boat, cable car rides, and lakeside dining are just a few of the attractions here. Check out the large market and health spa at Prien on the lake’s southside, too.
In the southern depths of the district, you will find the ski runs and hiking trails of Brannenburg, Oberaudorf and Kiefersfelden. Challenge yourself on the slopes and admire the panorama. Nature is showing off for you here. :-)
