From wild herb tours and herbal presentations to herbal packages – our herbal communities in Tölzer Land present the world of herbs to you.
The herbal communities in Tölzer Land introduce themselves:
Bad Heilbrunn is a health resort with healthy climate dedicated to herbs. In particular, the large herbal experience park with around 400 different wild, medicinal, kitchen and tea herbs is a unique experience for all the senses. The herbal processor adjacent to the park with store and café offers a variety of events, tours and courses, inviting you to feel, smell and most of all taste the diversity of herbs!
Herbs are one of the many aspects to which Bad Tölz dedicates itself in the interest of health and nature. Courses and seminars in the fields of traditional medicinal herb lore and phytotherapy as well as natural wellness offers are available here. The herbal educators in and around Bad Tölz also offer a varied program. Since 2012, you will find an herbal experience center at Ludwigstraße 5, where you can obtain information, buy herbal specialties or attend herbal workshops. Some of the Tölzer hosts have also specialized in the herbal field, using the tasty plants to prepare regional specialties.
Discover the centuries-old history of traditional monastery medicinal herbs, which are also found in the “Benediktbeurer Rezeptar” from the year 1250. The herb garden on the monastery grounds illustrates the developmental history of the plants and explains how important the use of domestic herbs is to this day. In the adjacent herbal experience store, you will find numerous homemade products from herbal oils and blooms to herb salt, snacks and books.
As part of the “Nature Summer in the Loisach Valley”(Natursommer im Loisachtal) series of events, Benediktbeuern in cooperation with the neighboring communities of Bad Heilbrunn and Kochel am See and the “Zentrum für Umwelt und Kultur” (Centre for the Environment and Culture) offers special natural experiences each year. In addition to pool safaris and bat watching, exploring the local herbs is also part of the program.
Plenty of wild herbs flourish in the largely untouched nature of the Jachenau. During wild herb hikes along the Jachen river, you can discover and explore nature in its original form. The “beim Langerbauern” showcase cheese dairy offers presentations, also in conjunction with wild herbs. Every year in the spring, Jachenau innkeepers pamper their guests with herbal specialty dishes.
Some hosts have dedicated themselves entirely to herbs as well. On the vitality farms, guests will find everything related to “tasting – smelling – feeling herbs”: herb gardens, homemade liqueurs, syrups, oils, herb salt, herbal teas, wildflower baths, herbal balms and herbal cushions as well as hay-based crafts are offered for the guests.
