Panorama road - from Munich in dry weather conditions
In nice weather or bad traffic (eg. If there is a traffic jam on the motorway) we recommend taking the scenic route through the German Lake District: Exit the motorway at “Weyarn” and cross the border via Miesbach, Schliersee and Bayrischzell in to Landl. Shortly after leaving the village, turn right and drive up the serpentine road for 3 km until you reach Hinterthiersee . Those who can’t stomach the serpentine road also have the option of continuing straight ahead after Landl to Vorderthiersee and then to Hinterthiersee (this is recommended in the winter, when there is snow on the roads).
Autobahn vignette or toll-road sticker
A vignette sticker (toll sticker) is compulsory when
driving on Austria’s motorways (Autobahnen) and expressways (Schnellstrassen).
Notice: the toll sticker must be properly displayed
when entering a motorway or expressway. This avoids a possible toll fine of at
least 120 euros. Toll stickers with periods of validity of 10 days, 2 months or
1 year are available at more than 6,000 outlets in Austria and abroad, at border
crossings, petrol stations and at many motor clubs.

Guests arriving in an environmentally friendly way will be rewarded
The beautiful landscape and the unspoilt natural environment are a privilege and a responsibility at the same time. We have therefore created an incentive for environmentally friendly travel. Many of our more athletic guests coming from Bavaria or Tyrol see the route up to the idyllic Thiersee Valley as a delightful challenge and choose to cycle up to the hotel. Instead of dealing with traffic jams, toll roads and creating unnecessary CO2 emissions, we recommend travelling by train. All express and intercity trains stop at the nearest railway station “Kufstein”, at the Austro-German border. From here there is a bus service to Hinterthiersee, leaving at regular intervals.
This dedication to the environment deserves a reward, which is why guests arriving by bicycle or public transport receive 10 cents per travelled kilometre as a green spa bonus. This bonus can be redeemed in the form of vouchers for spa treatments .
