Bad Wiessee offers plenty of activities, apart from its health treatments. In summer, visitors can sail or windsurf on the lake, or head to the mountains for mountain biking and hiking. A drive up the Wallberg Road winds through the Moorsalm pasture to an altitude of 990m (3,248 ft.). There's also plenty of golf and tennis. In winter, experienced Alpine skiers are drawn to the Wallberg, and there are many cross-country trails as well. Wintertime hiking is also possible, because about 97km (60 miles) of paths are cleared of snow. The less adventurous can enjoy horse-drawn sleigh rides. You can also take a mountain cable car, which travels up 1,530m (5,020 ft.).

The town of Bad Wiessee has old-world charm. It's best explored via the old-fashioned steam train or by carriage ride. During the annual lake festivals in summer, locals don traditional clothing and parade through the town. The nearby Tegernsee Ducal Palace contains the former monastery of St. Quinn, founded in A.D. 746.
