Hiking Highlight (Segment)
Gerhard Mauerberger went for a hike.

If you drive from Haag to Gars am Inn, you have to drive through a narrow valley just before Gars and go through some sharp switchbacks.Now I only hiked there with the help of Komoot and I am thrilled!The Rainbach, later called Urtelgraben, runs between Ramsau and Gars. This brook has dug deeply on its way to the Inn. There are hiking trails on both sides of the trench, which often run close to the edge. On this hike you almost feel like you're in the mountains.

Tip: on the way back in front of the Amselgraben it is not necessary to take the detour that Komoot suggested. You can walk straight to the Amselgraben along the edge of the forest.
Do you know the beautiful essay by Josef Hofmiller from 1921 on Gars (and Au), it says: "Southern Bavaria is rich in little-known vantage points, which in their way exist alongside the more famous ones in the mountains, so they do not compare them with the finer ones there is so much to see in Au and Gars that I have deliberately given hardly any details, and those who are looking for them will get their money's worth if you continue the hike south, from Gars to Wasserburg, from there via Attel to Rott, you will get to know one of the most beautiful and at the same time most unknown landscapes of Old Bavaria. but delicious. " - I read it some time ago and thought it was a corner that I hardly knew. Now I have a nice clue, thanks for that!
Thank you very much, MonacoTrail. I admit that I like to comment somewhat exuberantly on hikes that my wife or one of my daughters took part in. But the area between Haag and Gars am Inn, which was shaped so strongly by the last ice age, is really beautiful.
You're right, Gerhard. The area is really beautiful. I already have some ideas for future hikes. Last year I found a hiking guide in the bookshop in Haag, which is proving to be a valuable "coincidence".

@Melanie. A hiking guide from the old days? Or what news? In any case, your uncle's hiking book seems to be interesting.
@Gerhard: the hiking guide from Gars and the surrounding area is no longer up-to-date (from 2005), so be careful when guiding and stopping off, some things no longer exist. However, I found the booklet even available on Amazon, amazon.de/Rad-Wanderf%C3%BChrer-Umlassung-Bauern-Kl%C3%B6ster/dp/3936990247/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?dchild=1&keywords = farmers + beer + and + kl% C3% B6ster & qid = 1590570782 & sprefix = farmers + beer + & sr = 8-1. Or look at the libretto at the bookstore in Haag, where I bought it.My uncle's little hiking book was published by the municipality of Buch am Buchrain-Reithofen. I don't know if you can still get it. That is about 10 years old. The routes can be read via freizeitportal-erding.de/mobile/de.

Thank you, Melanie, for the detailed information.
Hello Gerhard, I find it exciting that you are simply going to an unknown area. And I can only confirm your conclusion. There are many unnoticed areas where you have impressions and views, such as in the so-called hotspots of hikers.MonacoTrail substantiates this almost scientifically 😉It's like this: People go where they expect something great. A place you have heard of or read about, e.g. But there are so many places that are unjustifiably outside. But currently brand new because of the Covid 19 thing. Komoot is a medium that helps me to find these places - and of course simple maps ...My focus is more on Karlsruhe and Munich (where I have to do regularly).

Thank you very much, Scout Jens. I am pleased that this hike receives so much approval.
