Many clichés apply to Lake Tegernsee. It is idyllic, enchanting, sophisticated, tranquil and – difficult to translate – urbayrisch (original Bavarian).

Lake Tegernsee was formed towards the end of the last great ice age, when a huge glacier carved a depression between the mountains. This later filled with water. Lake Tegernsee is one of the cleanest lakes in Bavaria.
