Kristallberge und Logo des Bergfilm Festivals Tegernsee 2017

At picturesque Lake Tegernsee, this October puts mountains on the silver screen. The encounter of people and mountains takes centre stage: from bold athletic deeds to spectacular documentaries and moving portraits. Outside the screening venues, intimate charm and Bavarian lifestyle enchant film makers and mountain fans from around the world.


Welcome to Mountainfilm-Tegernsee

Man and mountain –
sports and adventure –
wildlife and nature
