The start was last Sunday at the parking lot at the Störmthaler See viewpoint. 5 € for a day ticket is completely ok. Well-developed paths take you past the Schlumperbach cascades and the first of several beautifully painted toilet houses😉
Throwing the view over the lake, one sees again and again the cloud maker (Lippendorf power station) and the Vineta, an approx. 300 square meter large art object, which has been floating on the lake since 2011 and held by 4 anchors, which is attached to the church of Magdeborn the open-cast lignite mine was excavated, is supposed to remember.
The next lake is the Markkleeberger See, but before that I made a detour to the mining technology park.
This houses, among other things, a bucket wheel excavator (1300t) and a belt spreader (2400t). You can see these "primeval things" very well from the A38 motorway. Definitely worth a visit.
When you arrive at Lake Markkleeberger, you pass the canoe park. kanupark-markkleeberg.com
Already snaps while watching😀
On the north bank (lake promenade) there is a boat landing stage, a wine bite, a restaurant "Strandhaus" and a boat rental.
Before going to Lake Cospuder, a short detour to "Penelope" the statue on the upper, western bank lets its gaze wander over the lake in search of Odysseus😉 Then a round through the Kees'schen Park with its famous "Eagle Gate" "turned and then off to the beach"
On initially beautiful wood-lined paths, you pass the Hacienda Cospuden, the ZATO Bungee Jumping water station as well as a nudist and dog beach to the next stop, the diocese, a 35m high observation tower with 179 steps. You are rewarded with a view over the Leipzig area and from there you can hear and see the screaming people in neighboring Belantis😁
Along the Zwenkauer See towards the harbor. From there on towards the southern tip and on to the west bank of the Störmthaler See. Around the southern tip to the LAGOVIDA holiday resort lagovida.de/de very beautifully located with a guaranteed sea / beach feeling 👍🤩
The last 5km with a flat tire and empty bike battery rounded off the tour 🙈😂Conclusion: whether zu🦶, or per🚲, well-developed paths with lots of places for a break, beach bars, toilets, playgrounds. Whether you're looking for adventure or peace, with or without a dog, family or alone. EVERYONE can find something here.ABSOLUTELY RECOMMENDED !!! 🤗🤗🤗

in the footsteps of the👻 my way to Ehrenfriedersdorf / Geyer led me to the Waldgeisterweg. In beautiful autumn weather, leave the car park on Triftweg in the direction of Albin-Lager-Weg. The best starting point for a round is the parking lot, but unfortunately mostly full. (approx. 10 places)
At almost 2km in the direction of Greifensteine we passed many lovingly carved wooden figures👹👺👻. Partly funny, a little creepy but also well-known characters such as S'Karz'l, the witch Baba Jaga or Bernd das Brot, make it an unforgettable experience for children.
After a little refreshment at the "source" and a short detour to the Stülpner cave, we went on to the Greifensteinen, the Saxon Switzerland of the Ore Mountains 😉 For 50 cents you can go to the 731Hm & 162 steps high viewing platform and the view over the Let the Ore Mountains wander. A little refreshment 🍦 and finally to the Greifenstauweiher. Once around and via the poison meal trail back to the starting point.

Once the resting place of the abbot and his followers.
The "stone table" from the Middle Ages in the Abtwald was getting on in years and no longer really attractive. In cooperation with the communities of Gelenau, Auerbach, the Sachsenforst and Heimatverein Auerbach, the "Tischl" was given a new shelter, benches and tables and animal figures made of wood. All carvings made with a chainsaw.
Definitely worth a visit now 🤗

in the best weather we went to the Pöhl dam. From the parking lot above the Gunzenhausen campsite, we walked a little towards the dam and left at the climbing forest to the beautiful to the Weißen Elster🌊 along the Teufelskanzel and the Friedrich-August-Stein to the Elstertalbrücke, the second largest brick bridge🌉 in the world🌎 at 68m the Göltzschtalbrücke. From there my way led me towards the dam on the Trieb🌊. The rush of water, the chirping of birds and the arrival of autumn with its colors - fantastic. The path to the foot of the dam wall goes past the largest Douglas fir in Triebal (36.5 m high & 1.35 m diameter). A short but very steep path going off to the right leads to the crown of the lock and from there a signposted circular hiking trail around the dam, as the name suggests, once around. For the physical well-being and the urgent needs, is taken care of by the many camping & bungalow places. But since I am out of season, most of the smaller (snack bars) are closed.
A very varied route in terms of the underground.
If you don't want to go on such a long hike, you can rent a boat, pedal boat, take a trip on the ⛴, do some sport in the adjoining climbing forest or just have a cup and let the shine on your fur.Conclusion: whether hiking, family excursion, camping ... there is something for everyone and thanks to the many parking spaces around the dam, everything is easy and quickly accessible.
Paid parking is also acceptable with a maximum of 5 € for a day ticket.

Last Saturday I followed my sister's wish ..... once with alpacas🦙 hiking😄
Off to Memmendorf to the Miriquidi alpacas
Babett, our guide, came around the corner punctually at 10 o'clock ... a pure cheerfulness. After a brief introduction to the animals and instruction, we went for about 2km through the woods and fields. On the way there was a short stop to do one or the other 📸.
All in all, it's worth a family day out🙂

Since the 🌞 decided to push the ☁ aside after noon, I decided to put the 🥾 on again. Off to the Alpsee. Parking lot P4, directly at the two castles Neuschwanstein & Hohenschwangau. 8 € are pretty steep, regardless of whether it is 1 or 5 hours. The Pindarplatz (viewing platform approx. 30m above the lake) is the first beautiful viewpoint over the lake. The turquoise-green water with the mountains in the background - a dream😍 The further path, until you are approximately at water level, is mostly lined with larger stones and roots. After about 1.8 km you come to the Marienmonument. It was built in honor of Queen Marie. It was also her favorite place to swim. 2-3 benches and a fantastic view over the lake also invite you to have a picnic. After a further 1.3 km you go over one or the other bridge. The running surface is made of gratings so that it can only be used to a limited extent for your best friend🐕🦺 or you can wear it😉 If you want to swim, you will find the option at 600m in the Alpseebad. From May to September 11 am-6pm. Admission € 1.50 children, € 3 adults. There are also pedal boats and rowing boats for rent for boat enthusiasts at 1000m.
My round then took me up to Neuschwanstein Castle, unfortunately for me to visit only from the outside because currently only a very limited number of visitors have daily access and therefore the tickets are partially booked for several weeks the same applies to Hohenschwangau.
All in all, a very nice round with many great views. But you should keep in mind that this place is heavily frequented almost every day. Otherwise a "must see" for everyone who is drawn to this region

It started at 6 a.m. from the parking lot at the ski jump in Garmisch (760m). A day ticket (car) is more than cheap at € 2.50. The maximum parking time is 3 days for € 7.50. My path first led me to the Partnach Gorge. partnachklamm.de/de/Oeffnungszeiten-Ppreise Since this only opens from 8 a.m., it went up the stairs on the left over the iron bridge (you can see the gorge from above) to the Kaiserschmarrnalm. From there, a zigzag descent takes you back to the Partnach at the end of the gorge. On the way to Bockhütte I see the effects of the last storm several times. Several scree slopes from the mountains made the path impassable and allowed the Partnach to overflow its banks. Some of the rubble is still being removed with heavy equipment and the stream is restored to its original state. After 10km I reach the first of 3 huts towards Zugspitze, the Bockhütte (1052m). xn--bockhtte-b6a.de The most important thing to know is: There is NO overnight accommodation!
Short break. The fog clears them gradually and the mountains show themselves in their full extent. Imposing, impressive and this wonderful silence conjures up a unique atmosphere 💓💓💓 After another 5Km you reach the 2nd hut, the Reintalangerhütte (1369m). bergwelten.com/h/reintalangerhuette
Overnight stays cost € 29-42, for DAV members € 13-27, depending on the camp, multi-bed or twin room.
Very idyllic location and also suitable for families if the children like to go for a longer walk. First ☕🥪🧃 and finally enjoy coming over the mountain peaks
On to the origin of the part. This can be reached after less than 1 km. Somewhat off the path at an altitude of 1440m, it rises in the Zugspitze massif and is fed by the Schneeerner glacier, which is about 1100m higher. From the source there is a little bit of wild growth and branches over a lush meadow, which then ends abruptly in the scree. Since you know that you have reached the end of the Reintal and that gradually turns into (climbing). You now have to conquer between 25-35% incline and this inevitably continues. I am at 17.4Km and up to the 3rd hut, the Knorrhütte I would still have 1.2Km and 310HM in front of me. Since my night only brought 2 hours of sleep and my 🔋 is empty, I decide to go down. Reason should prevail in this terrain because, even if you don't need a via ferrata set, this part goes over to Alpine (T3) and you can seriously injure yourself or even fall if you take a wrong step. So I still enjoy the overwhelming view over the Reintal photos.komoot.de/www/62/62zhtlqx0s4k1tskyahuj3hh03x9a66hc-p194391462-full/17c2e41151f?width=3072&height=2304&crop=&q=70
and start the way back.Conclusion: Even if I had planned more, I am not disappointed. The route we walked was full of so many great impressions and moments and showed me what I had planned (wrongly) or not planned at all. Next year is on the plan again and then it says: 2963m 😉Another tip from me: Even if you plan to do one day, buy a two-day parking ticket and keep an eye on the travel times of the cable car and rack railway. It's no use if you have reached the summit but there is no train going back to the valley 😉 if necessary, spend the night at the Knorrhütte and continue the ascent the next day. Then you don't have to fear a penalty because the parking ticket has expired 🙈
