Old and new side by side.
A walking tour of Lenggries makes Bavaria`s good old days come alive. Quaint, picturesque spots and narrow streets, courtyards and houses that are protected as historic monuments, and carefully maintained traditions provide an impression of people from an earlier time and how they lived. But modern life exists cheek to jowl with the old - an appealing combination. A cultural must-see at
the center of the town is the St. James Baroque Church with its impressive altar and its "lantern tower".
In the Museum of Local History (Heimatmuseum), you can follow the history of the Isar Valley and its inhabitants. It will give you an impression of what everyday life in the days of yore was like, and you will learn about traditions that are still alive today. The lime kiln - an original from the old days - demonstrates an ancient industrial art, back when burning lime was one of the most important trades.
The largest private Animal Museum is a unique collection of regional animal species - an exciting experience, not just for children. A visit to the Falconry (Falknerhof) gets you up close and personal with falcons, vultures, and buzzards. A rewarding destination for architecture enthusiasts is Hohenburg Castle with its clear lines and severe façade.
The almost untouched landscape of the river meadows along the Isar is gorgeous. Endless walking and biking paths stretch along its white gravel banks and the wetlands. As a contrast, your adventuresome spirit gets a workout at the High rope course next to the valley station of the Brauneck cable car and the off-road trike course next to it.
