historical and elegant
Hainricus de Tolnze married the last heiress of the owners of Tölz´s castle. He gave Tölz its name and he is also responsible for the town´s first boom years. Situated at the crossing of two trade roads, the river Isar and the old trade road for salt from Reichenhall to Allgäu, Tölz soon became a flourishing market. In 1331 it was granted extensive "Marktrechte", e.g. the right to hold a market and has propered ever since. Today the town stands out as a baroque and colourful jewel close to the mountains. Indulge in all the pleasures that Bad Tölz can offer, visit its picturesque pedestrain precinct and have a look at shops, parks, fountains and a lot more.
