Ruhpolding lies right in the heartland of the Bavarian Alps. The Chiemgau region welcomes its visitors with an endless wealth of untouched nature and uniquely wonderful impressions. Hike and cycle past streams as clear as glass. In good weather, the peaks and lakes of the surrounding area invite you. We recommend the indoor wave pool “Vita Alpina”, with its new sauna suite and generous open-air facilities, at any time.

Biathlon World Cup in Ruh­polding

The Chiemgau Arena is the most modern sports facility in Ruhpolding and one of the most popular attractions. Top class winter sports events are held here in the season, but the Arena can also be visited in summer. Tours are available, and you can even show off your own skills at the Biathlon shooting range. There is bound to be something for all the family on this tour. And the Chiemgau Arena is only 7 km away from the hotel.

All cyclists set their own speed when they’re on their bikes. Some charge down mountains at breakneck speed, others like to go at a more comfortable pace. The Chiemgau offers the right route for every visitor.
