Hike to Schliersberg Alm

The starting point of the hike is Schliersee train station or the car park at the train station for those arriving by car. From here, head north to Miesbacher Strasse and immediately turn left into Leitnerstrasse. First slightly uphill, the road becomes steeper up to the valley station of the Schliersberg Cable Car on Dekan-Maier-Weg. Caution: after the steep bend, be sure to take the second right turn – the first turning with the same name is a dead end.

After the cable car station the path begins to flatten out. The wide track snakes upwards through shady and sunny sections up to the Schliersberg Alm. The path although not paved and uneven in places, is suitable for larger strollers / Kinderwagen.

Lunch at the Schliersberg Alm

Reaching the top, a restaurant with a large sun terrace as well as a self-service snack bar (Alm) and beer garden await. Here you can find something for everyone, from small snacks, cakes and ice cream, to larger meals for lunch or dinner. Not only can you enjoy amazing views from the Schliersberg Alm, kids will love the playground, Alpine Coaster and trampolines. From a culinary point of view, the restaurant is the better choice. No matter where you sit, the view of Lake Schliersee is magnificent.

The quickest way back down to the lake is by cable car or the summer toboggan (Sommerrodelbahn). Recommended for children from the age of 6, the summer toboggan run is fun for both young and old, operating only in dry conditions. The descent on foot follows the same path as the ascent.


The path continues from the Schliersberg Alm to the wooded summit of the Schliersberg. The easy hike up the Schliersberg (also called Rohnberg) takes about 15 minutes.

If you have traveled by public transport or parked at Schliersee train station, we recommend a visit to the cafés or restaurants on the northern shore of the lake: For example, Café Milchhäusl is just a few minutes from the train station and offers a wide selection of homemade cakes on the beautiful sun terrace with a view of lake Schliersee.
