Planning a Trip
By Train -- The station of Tegernsee is an 80-minute ride from Munich's Hauptbahnhof. To reach hotels in Rottach-Egern, you must take a taxi from the station. The trains make stops only in the town of Tegernsee and (less frequently) in the village of Gmund. The distance from the town of Tegernsee to the hamlet of Rottach-Egern is about 2km (1 1/4 miles). Only a small stream separates the two towns. Taxis make runs all the time between them, charging 7€ to 13€ ($11-$21) per trip.
By Car -- From Munich, take the A8/A9 Autobahn toward Salzburg. At exit 97 (Holzkirchen) veer south and follow the signs to Tegernsee.
