Taking the cable car to the Wendelstein (1,838m)
The mountain top welcomes you with spectacular views
You can gaze at over 200 mountains from there, clear weather provided. A Panorama-board simplifies naming these giants.
You have two options to get to the top of the Wendelstein by train. The first one is located about 500m distance from our house, and that is the base station of the cable car. A large cable car moves you within a few minutes from the valley up to the mountain station (1,724m).
The second option to reach this mountain is offered by Germany´s first cog railway in Brannenburg (build 1910-1912). The roughly 25-30 minutes long ride is a special event for the whole family.
On top of the Wendelstein there is more to see than the incredible panorama, for example the GEO Park, restaurant, exhibition, church, cave and observatorium.
Tip: Please visit the website of the Wendelstein railway before your trip. Here you will get important information about the current weather and if your destination is open. The Wendelstein cave, for example, is closed during the winter season.

Truly Bavarian– like the name already says
The name SLYRS sounds gaelic, as if he had Scottish or Irish roots. However, the true history of the name shows, that SLYRS is even more Bavarian than most would think. Fitting for the distillery, the name SLYRS actually has roots in "high spirits". In the year 1779 five monks founded the Adalung, Hiltupalt, Kerpalt, Antonius and Otakir, a monastery in the solitude of Schliersee.
They named this monastery SLYRS, correctly pronounced SHLEERS. The monastery SLYRS developed over the centuries to the namesake of the whole region around Schliersee. 1220 years after the foundation followed another milestone in the cultural development of Upper Bavaria: The SLYRS Single Malt Whisky Distillery was founded.
