Ski Holidays

Bavaria – home to beer, bratwurst and beautiful mountains

Grab your Lederhosen, the Bavarian mountains are Germany’s best kept secret.

Pretty and traditional resorts, much like Austria, but quieter. Welcome to Germany.

For 200km between Liechtenstein and Salzburg, Germany’s southern border runs through the mountains connecting it with Austria. There’s very little to distinguish between the two regions, you’ll find the same customs, language and love for bratwurst and beer – as well as other alpine favourites. German resorts are less frequented than their Austrian counterparts, but offer good connections to the international hub of Munich airport, making it an ideal weekend hit. As for the skiing? The resorts themselves are quite small but perfect for short breaks and easy descents.
