Upper Bavaria is crisscrossed with cultural and natural attractions, from perennial tourist favourites to still-undiscovered gems. While you're in the area, check out the Herrenchiemsee Castle and Herrenchiemsee Abbey in and around Chiemsee, which is 14 miles (23 kilometers), from Trostberg. A trip to Altoetting is another interesting option. It's 15 miles (24 kilometers) from Trostberg and is home to the Abbey of Capuchins and Chapel of Grace.
Approximately 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the south of Trostberg is Ruhpolding, an important regional city where you'll find Church of Saint George, Vita Alpina and Barthlomaus Schmucker Heritage Museum. Ruhpolding Amusement Park, Golf Club Ruhpolding and Unternberg Ruhpolding are just a sample of the many other interesting visitor attractions that await.
Travelers seeking out special places to learn more about local spiritual beliefs, will enjoy visiting some of the region's churches. History enthusiasts will want to visit Upper Bavaria's fine old old towns, historic palaces and castles.
Specialty tours are a unique way to discover places only locals know. Join into one of the city walking tours and guided nature walks. Winter is a great time to head to Upper Bavaria. Pull on your woollens and try some of the wintersports here. Try skiing or snow shoeing.
When the time comes to leave this special place, say farewell the way locals do, with a hearty "Tschüss."
