The Priental valley - experience the Upper Bavarian way of life with pleasure
The Priental valley with its climatic health resort Aschau im Chiemgau and the mountaineering village Sachrang offers pure holiday enjoyment all year round. The Prien torrent meanders wonderfully through the hilly land of the valley of the same name - picturesquely framed by the Chiemgau's local mountain, the Kampenwand, whose three-pronged peak is the region's landmark. At its feet lies the traditional climatic health resort of Aschau im Chiemgau, which has served as a restful domicile for over 130 years for both "summer visitors" and winter holidaymakers. At the far end of the Priental, along the Prien to the source at the Spitzstein, in the mountaineering village Sachrang with its nature reserve Geigelstein everyone finds peace and quiet.
Around 300 kilometres of hiking trails lead contemplatively through the valley or up to the peaks of the Kampenwand, which can also be climbed by cable car. For families with children, the western high-altitude trail is particularly recommended: the "Boarischer Entschleunigungsweg" (Bavarian deceleration trail) leads to nine stations, where unusually designed theme banquets invite you to do small relaxation exercises and to linger with a wonderful view of the valley, Hohenaschau Castle and the Kampenwand. Another 200 smart, special and unusual bankers, designed by the municipality as well as by citizens, associations and shops, can also be found in the centre of Aschau im Chiemgau and Sachrang. The enthroned Hohenaschau Castle from the 11th century can be visited by the public during the summer months.
