HS-muc went for a hike.
August 30, 2019
A technically simple but long tour, very well suited for hot summer days.Once you have left Holzkirchen, you have the first few kilometers of unobstructed views of the land. Until Kleinhartpenning light forest and meadows alternate again and again. In the small village there are farms with an incredible number of flying swallows that nest there.The way to Hackensee (a small official swimming area is available) is not far, and you have to share only a short distance with the traffic.Main inlet is the Kirchseebach from the Kirchsee, its course of the Hackenseebach, which infiltrates however already after few kilometers in the Teufelsgraben. The Hackensee is 683 m above sea level. NN and is maximum 3.5 m deep. It measures 180 m at the widest point and is 600 m long. Because of its many aquatic plants and the very marshy water, the popularity of the Hackensees as bathing water is somewhat limited.Now it goes on always through the forest, sometimes times grown very tight. Only from the Kirchsee the landscape expands with a view over the lake, through forest aisles on the Bavarian mountains. A Bavarian landscape as if from a picture book. Only a short distance further and he first official bathing area begins. There it is less crowded. Again a short distance through the forest and you reach the small junction at the kiosk to the second bathing area with jetty. Fantastic view while splashing and swimming in healthy bog water.For further strengthening we recommend the Klosterbräustüberl Reutberg with beer garden on a high terrace. If it is too crowded, you have to walk a short distance along the planned path to Sachsenkam and stop there.Subsequently, the typical alpine foothills with forests and meadows are visible again until you arrive at the destination in Schaftlach.
