Besides mountains and waters the Chiemgau is characterized by it`s unique fauna and flora, with upland moors, nature reserves, alps, and flood reeds.
Due to the regions popularity, tourists can find well-developed biking- and hiking trails.
In summer tourists like using the theme paths and long-distance trails, like e.g. the Maximilians- and Schmugglerpath, the Fernwanderpath E4 (long-distance), Salzalpensteig or the Route Via Alpina. There`s up to 20 hiking trails signposted around Schleching.
One of the most popular destinations is the region`s landmark - the "Watzmann". With its 2.731m it is the highest point of the Berchtesgadener land.

Many of these summits are accessible via cable car, e.g. the Kampenwand-railway, Geigelstein-railway, Unterberg-railway, Hochschries-railway, Hochfelln-railway, Rauschberg-railway etc.
