Ruhpolding offers a host of accommodations, from cozy private B&Bs or vacation apartments to four-star hotels. Some 80 restaurants care for your well-being.
In winter, great ski runs and cross-country skiing slopes are available. The whole family can go curling or ice-skating in the skating rink or sledge-riding on the natural track. A ride on a horse-drawn sleigh is great fun for those looking for less exertion.
You needn’t be active in winter sports, you can also watch stars from all over the world compete in international winter sports events. The biathlon world cup annually takes place in Ruhpolding , drawing thousands of fans.
Many customs have remained intact. Heimatabende, farmer’s weddings and folk costume parades are a sight to behold. There is not only folklore, either: more than 200 km marked trails invite hikers on paths of different difficulty (marked in different colored signs).
Among the most popular destinations: the Rauschberg mountain (1672 m) offering great views, and with a cable car getting visitors in the midst of Alpine surroundings in just five minutes; the Unternberg with a double chair lift; the forest path to the baroque pilgrimage church Maria Eck with its monastery restaurant; the trail to the Staubbachfall waterfall; and the path to the idyllic Weitsee lake, the last of three bathing lakes belonging to Ruhpolding and among the warmest mountain lakes in Bavaria.
Interesting landscape with meadows of flowers and richly forested mountains, oftentimes reminiscent of the stage setting for a Operette musical drama, rustic-homely atmosphere, “luftbemalte” (decorated) houses, wooden balconies adorned with geraniums, baroque parish church, quaint pubs – all parts of what this Upper Bavarian town on the German Alpine Road has to offer.
The valley of Ruhpolding encompasses an area of 149 sq.km., making the community one of the largest of Bavaria in terms of area covered. Ruhpolding is richly blessed, but especially marked by the traditions which have been maintained.
The village of 6800 inhabitants offers its guests 6400 beds, from private quarters to luxury hotels, from nice farmsteads to vacation apartments – whatever a vacationer may desire.
Friends of the water will find theirs in the wave pool spa, the first of its kind in the Alps, and the wide open-air pools of different kinds. Farmer’s painting courses, the folklore museum in the hunting lodge and the museum of peasant sacred art with the largest parameter collection in Europe, the museum of woodworkers in the parish courtyard with extended open-air area, concerts in the spa gardens, dance in quaint cellars and to modern beats in hot discos, Alm-music and Alm-hut evenings on the Raffneralm and in the Unternberghof as well as plays staged by the Ruhpolding Farmer’s Theater add to the excitement.
The youngest guests are well cared for in the kindergarten, with children’s playgrounds, a fairy tale-park and affordable children’s dishes in most restaurants and pubs. For the developed taste of adults, the restaurants in town also offer culinary treats from both international and Bavarian cuisines.
Further facilities such as tennis courts (indoors and outdoors), horse riding stable and school, mini golf, 18-hole golf courses und more offer entertainment.
The Altes Schulhaus (former school) of Ruhpolding, which was rebuilt into a “Haus des Gastes” (guest’s house), is a particular attraction. This new meeting place for vacationers contains reading rooms, TV rooms and lecture rooms, all available to the spa guest from 9 a.m.- 10 p.m., daily.
The light mood and friendliness are character traits which have shaped Ruhpolding, the people, the churches and chapels, the landscape and the mood of the guests. This harmony of humans and nature has turned the Ruhpolding valley between Salzburg and Chiemsee into the paragon of holidays in the Bavarian Alps. – Ruhpolding is a real vacation, no matter the time of year.”
