Lake sauna on the Tegernsee

Lake sauna on the Tegernsee

Temperatures are below zero and the yearning for heat is endless... so it's high time to take the train and make your way to Tegernsee.

Take the 'BOB' from the rear platforms (platform:27-36) at Munich Hauptbahnhof to Tegernsee station. From there, go down towards the lake and you can't miss the Monte-Mare lake sauna. Plan on getting to the sauna as early as possible, as it is closed above a certain number of people. You can either spend the day in the Irmgard ship sauna, or try out the four different saunas. And for anyone brave enough, nothing is stopping you from diving into the lake.
