The Predigtstuhlbahn - the Cable Car in Bad Reichenhall
20.05.2019

The Predigtstuhlbahn in the brine spa town Bad Reichenhall is one of the ten most spectacular cable cars in the world. Take a nostalgic trip with the famous Predigtstuhlbahn from 1928 and enjoy the fantastic view, for example on the mountains Dachstein, Wilder Kaiser, the Steinerne Meer, the Hochkönig, Watzmann or Hochkalter! They manage 1,150 vertical meters and a distance of 2,500 meters. The mountain station is located just below the summit, at 1583 meters altitude.

The Predigtstuhl is a 1,613 m high mountain in the Lattengebirge and is next to Hochstaufen, Zwiesel and the Untersberg the house mountain of the Alpine town Bad Reichenhall. Above you will find a wonderful hiking plateau, a rustic alpine hut, the Schlegelmuldenalm, and beautiful walking and hiking trails to the surrounding peaks and to Berchtesgaden.

The cable car is technically in perfect condition and brings since its commissioning on July 1, 1928, their passengers safely on the Predigtstuhl. It is thus the oldest preserved in the original, year-round large cable car in the world. At the mountain station, there is also a small museum, with lots of information about the origins of the Predigtstuhlbahn.

Directly at the mountain station is a mountain restaurant with a spacious sun terrace with a breath-taking view of the alpine town Bad Reichenhall and the surrounding mountains; the ambiance of the fireplace room seduces you into a bygone era.

The customers park free of charge directly at the valley station. It is best to take a bus from Inzell to Bad Reichenhall, the view out of the window is just fantastic. The bus stop "Tiroler Tor / Predigtstuhlbahn" is located in the immediate vicinity of the valley station (about 5 minutes on foot). Both the Bad Reichenhaller city bus Line 1 and the Upper Bavarian regional transport RVO line 841 bring you there (the use is free for holiday guests with spa card by the way).

For example hikes in and around Inzell (Falkensee, Krottensee, Frillenseeetc.), trips to the Lake ChiemseeKönigssee, the Berchtesgaden Salt Mine, Roßfeld ring road, amusement park Ruhpolding, various cable and cog railways (Wendelstein, Rauschberg, Jenner), Winklmoosalm, Salzburg, etc. 

Nordic Walking also has its place in Inzell. Since 2006 Inzell DSV Nordic Aktiv Center has specialized in Nordic walking. Three tours are signposted in the village, the starting point is the Nordic Active Center at Sport Hochreiter and the ski school Inzell near the Badepark, which is only about 8 minutes walk from our hotel.

The Koenigssee – a Great Lake in the Alps

The Koenigssee – a Great Lake in the Alps
15.04.2019

The Königssee in the middle of the Berchtesgaden National Park is the only fjord-like mountain lake in Central Europe. Königssee is one of the few alpine lakes that usually remain ice-free in winter.

Only noiseless electric boats sail on the Königsee, the lake has drinking water quality and is one of the cleanest lakes in Germany.

St. Bartholomä is the landmark of Königssee. The drive to St. Bartholomä takes about 45 minutes. During the crossing, a lot is told about the Königsee. After about 1/3 of the distance the ship stops and a trumpeter plays a song, which can be heard again several times as an echo.

TIP: Most guests go only to St. Bartholomä, because there is the former hunting castle, which today serves as an idyllic inn, a very beautiful, world-famous pilgrimage church St. Bartholomä, further hiking opportunities and from there you have a fabulous view of the Watzmann and its "family". But don't forget to drive all the way to the Salletalm and hike to Obersee. If you are a good walker, you can continue from there to the alpine hut at the other end of the lake Obersee.

It takes only 40 minutes by car from our hotel Gastager in Inzell to the lake Königssee.

Day Trip to the Lake Chiemsee

Day Trip to the Lake Chiemsee
09.04.2019

The famous Chiemsee cycle path and many other cycles and hiking trails lead around the lake. You can simply walk around it, cycle, swim, fish, surf or visit its famous islands.

There are three islands in the Chiemsee, also known as the "Bavarian Sea": Fraueninsel ("ladies' island"), Herreninsel ("gentlemen's island") and Krautinsel (“herbs' island”). In summer the Krautinsel serves as a pasture for cattle. There are also three very small islands: The Schalch and two nameless islands, which are connected with each other by a gravel bank. The Herreninsel with its Herrenchiemsee Castle and the Fraueninsel with its ancient Benedictine monastery and a cute fishing village are visited every year by people from all over the world.

The Benedictine monastery Frauenwörth on the Fraueninsel in Chiemsee was founded in the 8th century. The monastery is very large and occupies almost a third of the total area of the Fraueninsel.

In 1873 King Ludwig II acquired the Herreninsel in Chiemsee, where he built his New Castle Herrenchiemsee as a private residence. The castle is a copy of Versailles Castle in France. A large garden was also planned to follow the example of Versailles.

Herreninsel and Fraueninsel can only be reached by ship or by boat. The Chiemsee boat trip departs in summer from Prien and Bernau directly to Herreninsel, and from Gstadt, Seebruck, Chieming, and Übersee via Fraueninsel.

Embedded in the beautiful mountains in Inzell lies the bathing park, which is highly recommended for families with children. The swimming pool has a diving platform and an extra play area for children. The adjoining sauna area is very beautiful and cosy. In summer there is a natural pool outside. Not only people but also small and large fish swim in the water. There are plenty of shady places under many large trees.

Also, a walk through the Inzell moor is always recommendable. Parents and children can learn a lot about biotope moor. And all this in front of an impressive mountain backdrop! This hiking trail can be connected very well to hike to the Kessel-Alp.

The alpine pasture can also be reached by bicycle or car. Parking spaces are right next to the Kessel-Alm. On the terrace of the Kessel-Alm - with a breath-taking mountain panorama - you can enjoy a delicious Bavarian snack and homemade cakes. For children, there is a petting zoo and a summer tubing train.

We warmly welcome you to our family hotel Gastager Inzell!

The Hiking Trail to Zwiesel
The Hiking Trail to Zwiesel
The Hiking Trail to Zwiesel
15.03.2019

There is a great number of hiking trails in and around Inzell. The Zwiesel in eastern Chiemgau is a tried and tested hiking destination. It is really a varied, very scenic mountain hike! The Zwiesel is with 1782 m the highest mountain of the mountain chain Staufen in Bavaria, Germany. It is located between Inzell and Bad Reichenhall in the Bavarian districts Berchtesgadener Land and Traunstein.

Several marked trails lead from Inzell (Adlgaß), Weißbach (Jochberg) and Bad Reichenhall (Listsee) to the summit of Zwiesel. The ascent of Adlgaß leads over the shady Zwieselsteig up to the Neunerluk, then east over the promising ridge to the Zwiesel. The route leads on the north side of the mountain for a long time through shady forest and is especially recommended for the high summer. The ascent is well signposted and the views impressive. From the summit of the Zwiesel - but also during the ascent - you have a great view of the lake Chiemsee, Berchtesgaden Alps over the entire Chiemgau to the Bavarian Prealps.

If you feel like it, you can also walk over to the Zennokopf (1756 m) in about 10 minutes. From the Zennokopf a descent to the Zwieselalm on the south side of the mountain is highly recommended, from there continue on the Kohleralm and back to the starting point. The Kohleralm is mostly managed in the summer, otherwise, you can also stop in the inns in Inzell and Adlgaß.

If you still have enough strength, sure-footed and free from giddiness, cross the Zwiesel and follow between the pines of the Marking to Gamsknogel (1750m), the direct neighbour of the famous Zwiesel. The Gamsknogel is much less well known and committed because the trail is relatively demanding.

Winter Holidays with Your Dog
24.09.2018

Our dog-friendly hotel Gastager invites all owners with their faithful four-legged friends for a winter holiday! Here you can exchange the stress and worries of everyday life for peace and relaxation.

Especially on the Winklmoos near Inzell a winter hiking tour with a dog makes a lot of fun!  Your pets enjoy here fresh air and gentle snow, feel the freedom and play wildly.

What is there to consider while the winter hiking with your dog:

The long-haired dogs, in particular, have to fight with rock-hard, scorching snow clumps on the paws.

Therefore, we advise to shorten the hair between the toes before the walk and to cream the paws thick.

The dogs with short fur are not naturally protected from the cold in winter outdoors. They need a warm dog sweater.

Leave the hustle and bustle of life behind and enjoy nature in Inzell to the full! Go on a new adventure with your dog!

Check out our top deal "Holiday with Your Dog"!
