Summer in Ruhpolding can do something.

The many lakes, rivers, mountains, forests and meadows will enchant you and make your holiday unforgettable. If you would like to be active in sports, you will also get your money’s worth in Ruhpolding in summer. Whether hiking, biking, swimming, golfing, horseback riding, paragliding or tennis. But Ruhpolding is not only a paradise for active holidaymakers, but also for peace seekers and wellness fans!


From the leisurely valley hike to the demanding via ferrata, everything is offered for adventurers. 240 kilometers of hiking trails of all levels of difficulty, rustic alpine huts with hearty snacks or Bavarian delicacies and the Sonntagshorn with 1961 meters, the highest mountain in the region, make you want to move. If you can’t climb the peaks of the Bavarian Alps on foot, the Rauschbergbahn, the Hochfellnseilbahn and the Unternbergersessellift will take you comfortably up.


In Ruhpolding there is room for both – the mountain biker and the pleasure cyclist. On a leisurely bike tour around the mountain lakes of Chiemgau or through the green forests of the Bavarian Alps, nature can be experienced up close. At altitudes of 600 to 1,800 meters, countless mountain bike routes provide the very special thrill.

Swimming pool & mountain lakes

During the strenuous hikes and cycling tours, of course, a dip in the cool water should not be missing… No problem at all in Ruhpolding: Here you will find numerous mountain lakes and rivers with crystal clear water in the middle of beautiful scenery. It is not for nothing that the Ruhpolding Valley is also called “little Canada.” The Löden-, Mitter- and Weitsee, for example, are only a few minutes’ drive from Traunbachhäusl and are also easily accessible by bike!

If you prefer the outdoor pool, you will also find what you are looking for in Ruhpolding. The Vita Alpina adventure & wellness pool with large outdoor pool. A sports and jumping pool, a large non-swimmer pool with slide and a paddling pool provide wonderful cooling and absolute bathing pleasure.


Where else, if not in Ruhpolding, do passionate golfers get their money’s worth?

The Ruhpolding 18-hole golf course is surrounded by a fantastic mountain panorama. The view of surrounding meadows, forests and the Chiemgau Alps makes the golf experience something very special!

The almost 40 other golf courses in the area, which can be reached within 60 minutes by car, make the golfer’s heart beat even faster!

Amusement park

The natural beauty and the extensive forest area with a total area of 50,000 m2 invite you to a relaxing visit to the park and offer space for romping and playing. On hot days, the dense foliage of the forest provides shade and ensures pleasant temperatures, but even in unstable weather, the park with many covered attractions is a popular destination.

Varied and diversely designed, the lovingly developed attractions inspire, such as the mountain roller coaster “Gipfelstürmer”, the low ropes course “Gratwanderung”, the mountain of dinosaurs or the Ruhpolding crystal mine.

Chiemgau Coaster

The Chiemgau Coaster in Ruhpolding is one of the top excursion destinations in Chiemgau, directly at the entrance to the village opposite the ARAL filling station. Accessible from the town center 5 min. on foot, by car to our parking lot at the toboggan run or by village line to our bus stop. The route of the 1100 m long summer toboggan run is impressive, as it crosses a hiking trail and then leads through two action-packed roundabouts at a breathtaking height of over 7 meters above the ground. At up to 40 km/h, the summer tobogganers drive into the valley on the colorful sleds, after they have previously been transported relaxed to the mountain station with the automatic lifter system.
