The term Bavarian Alps in its wider sense refers to that part of the Alps that lies on Bavarian state territory in Germany. However it is usually understood that the Bavarian Alps are only those ranges between the rivers Lech and Saalach in Germany. In this narrower sense, the Allgäu Alps, which have only been part of Bavaria in more recent times, and the Berchtesgaden Alps are not considered part of the Bavarian Alps.
The term is frequently used, but does not correspond to the classification of the Eastern Alps developed by the German-speaking Alpine Clubs. It should not be confused with the term Bavarian Prealps either. The latter only covers the Bavarian section of the prealps between the River Loisach in the west and the River Inn in the east.
