SLYRS Bavarian Single Malt Whiskey Distillery was founded in 1999 by Florian Stetter. During an educational trip through Scotland, he thought it would be a great idea to produce Whiskey in Bavaria. At the Hopf Brewery in Miesbach he learnt to be a brewer. During this time, he produced his first Whiskey mash.

The name „Slyrs" has been the name of a monastery at the lake Schliersee. At the same time this name still is used as an expression for the green-yellow streaks found inside the mountain sediments. You can see them throughout the whole region of Schliersee. This is why the whole region also has been called „Slyrs". During the passage of time the name changed and nowadays is known as „Schliersee".

2007 the company moved to Neuhaus and Florian Stetter passed the management to his brother Anton and his business executive Thomas Flothmann. All Whiskeys are made of Bavarian corn and Alpine mountain water. The most popular Whiskeys are the three year old Single Malt Vintage Whiskey, developed by Hans Kemenater and his team, SLYRS Whisky Liqueur (30 % Vol.), the Barrel-Finishings of the SLYRS Whiskeys and the limited editions SLYRS Whiskeys, which are being stored in up to 50 year old barrels of the port wine wineries of the Duoro Valley and the most famous Bodegas of Jerez. 2014 the SLYRS Bavarian Single Malt Whisky Distillery won an award for „Best Single Malt Whisky in Europe“ for the finishing in a PX barrel.

Visit the adventure distillery in Schliersee/Neuhaus and get to know everything about the Whiskey production. Watch the video film about the whole distillation procedure and then join a guided tour through the distillery or discover the factory on your own. All details are shown on information boards and at the end of every tour, you can take part at a dégustation on the gallery of the barrel hall. Here you can also enjoy looking at the Wendelstein massif.

Inside the Slyrs Shop you will find lots of souvenirs, accessories, Lantenhammer Fruit Brandy and SLYRS Bavarian Single Malt Whisky. Please notice, the purchase is limited to one bottle per person.

Winter solstice

Already during the ancient times, people celebrated this occasion with music and chants and by lighting up a big fire.
The Winter Solstice Party at the “Seefestwiese” in Schliersee is a tradition. The Party will start on December, 30th at 2 o´clock in the afternoon. All our guests can celebrate the longest night of the year, enjoy delicious food as well as swinging tunes.

Firstalm Carnival

One of the oldest cultural events during the carnival season is the so called „Firstalm-Fasching” at the lower Firstalm (Untere Firstalm) at lake Spitzingsee. At the end of the 60s holidaymakers and residents started to dress up in costumes and celebrated the „ Firstalm-Faschingsgaudi” by running down the hill on skis. During these days the only way to get onto this part of the mountain was by foot. People had to walk up the hill and carried their skis on their back. Today everything is much easier. Nowadays you can hop onto the button lift and ride down the slope towards the „Untere Fistalm”.

Many visitors come to the region of Schliersee. On Sunday, during the carnival season, they put on some costumes, e.g. as a huntsman, witch, monk, magician or pirate and ride down the northern slope. The „Firstalm-Skifasching” starts on Sunday during the carnival season at 11.00 a.m. at the lower Firstalm.

Instead of travelling by car, how about getting on the train of the Bayerische Oberlandbahn? Every hour the train leaves from the main railway station in Munich and will take you to Fischhausen-Neuhaus. From here you can take the RVO-Bus number 9562 and get off at Spitzingsee. The current departure time you can find at  https://www.bayern-fahrplan.de/de/auskunft .



Wild animal feeding Valepp

One thing you should not miss during your holidays in the region of Schliersee is the wild animal feeding at the Valepp near Spitzingsee. As soon as the snow has fallen and the rain deer are not able to find enough food, they are being fed at the winter gate. Way up in the mountains, the animals are not able to survive. The heavy snow makes it impossible to find a single grass stalk. This is why the deer move down the mountains in order to find some food in the lower altitudes. Most of their natural tracks are occupied by man-made buildings and so they are not able to find enough to eat. This is why they then start eating the tree barks in the forests. In order to avoid this, the Bavarian state forest workers have out up a winter gate and regularly feed the deer and give them fresh water.

The Valepp feeding ground lies near the Valepper Steet. This road is closed for public traffic. The fenced area is about 27 square metres wide and has three gates. About 50 deer stay there in winter. Their food is being placed on a huge kind of table. As soon as the snow covers up the whole ground, the feeding of the wild rain deer takes place from Thursday to Sunday at 03.00 p.m. The last time the deer get fed is on the last Sunday of the German Carnival holiday. During the Christmas Holidays the feeding hours take place at another time. For more Information, please look inside the broshure  „Schaufütterung Wintergatter Spitzingsee“.

You can travel to Spitzingsee by car or by train and bus. If you are planning to drive with your car, please drive on the Autobahn A8 Munich-Salzburg and exit at Weyarn. Then turn to the road leading you to Bayrischzell and drive to Neuhaus. At the end of Neuhaus, please turn right to Spitzingsee. You can park your car at the church St. Bernhard in Spitzingsee.
If you prefer travelling by train, the Bayerische Oberlandbahn will take you driectly from Munich to Fischhausen-Neuhaus. At the main railway station in Fischhausen-Neuhaus, please look for the RVO-Bus number 9562 and get off at the church in Spitzingsee. From here you can walk to the Valepper Street and further on to the winter gate.
