The way was difficult and the borders were tight. Surrounded by mountains, Reit im Winkl really was cut off from neighboring areas in earlier times, especially in winter. Today this isolation, still implied in the name (Winkl means corner), need not be taken literally anymore. Reit im Winkl belongs to Bavaria, but the Austrian states of Tyrol and Salzburg are near. Reit im Winkl has become borderless and the horizon is exhilarating.
The mountain and ski-village Reit im Winkl is one of the leading clean air rehabilitation spas and furthermore is a hiking paradise in the Bavarian Alps. At an altitude of 695m, Reit im Winkl gets remarkable amounts of snow in the winter and is known for that well beyond Bavaria’s borders.
Well-kept, century-old farms sit amidst a countryside that has kept its charm and gives the town a unique appeal.
