Wonderful winter hike from Brauneck to Stangeneck. Not really a real summit, but a fantastic all-round view. One can see the Großglockner and Großvenediger in the distance. We were lucky with a great view.
The path up from the valley is quite steep, but to the Kotalm forest path. Most of the hikers were with their paragliders. One after the other then started from Brauneck.
We left the Brauneck on the left and went straight to the Stangeneck. Originally we wanted to continue to Latschenkopf, but it was a little too late for us. In retrospect, the path over the Latschenkopf to the Stie-Alm would have been the better choice, as the direct descent to the Stangeneck was not entirely easy. You should bring a little head for heights and surefootedness with you. We probably didn't gain that much time either.
The long way back over the forest path is, as usually, tiring and not so exciting. At the end it gets a bit steep (the knees had their "joy").
The crossing to the parking lot goes over a meadow. At the end of the mud we really got our shoes off. Uh :)

We had always avoided walking to the popular and much-visited Herzogstand. Due to the lockdown light with closed mountain inn and cable car, we were hoping for a little fewer visitors. In the fine weather it was of course well attended, but it was still within limits.
The path is very easy, mostly a forest path, but many beautiful views and the view from the summit of Kochel and Walchensee is fantastic. A further way to the Heimgarten would certainly also be interesting.
At the mountain inn there was a small kiosk with snacks to take away.

Beautiful round trip in the Rofan Mountains
At 2299 m, the Hochiss is the highest peak in the Rofan Mountains and easy to climb. 1.5 hours from the mountain station of the cable car. In places it is said that you need a head for heights, but the 10 m gully downhill looks worse than it is. Long legs are beneficial :)
The icy up snow was uncomfortable to walk and cost us time.
On the Dalfazalm you have a beautiful view of the Achensee and the Karwendel. The Kaiserschmarrn is recommended.

The last two days it has snowed down to 1000 m. Today on September 27th, 2020 the weather was fantastic and you had the feeling up there that it was already winter. Magnificent views and a recommendable Lenggrieser hut. Delicious food at reasonable prices and a great view from the terrace.
The Sulzersteig is superbly laid out and is very easy to walk on even when it is wet. The Grasleitensteig was very muddy downhill at the beginning and not recommended. From the forest path and the further path through the forest then again pleasant.
Today was a wonderful tour and not too strenuous. From the hut towards Seekarkreuz you had to be careful in the longer forest section not to be struck by snow masses.
Hikers' parking space: EUR 2

A very nice tour with good visibility. Unfortunately that wasn't given to us. With the Hochplattenbahn (chair lift) it went up to 1040 m. Travel time is approx. 15 minutes and overcomes 430 meters in altitude. For only 10 EUR p.p. (Ascent and descent) you can treat yourself to that and save time and energy.
Up to the Piesenhauser Hochalm we only walked a forest path. You can make a detour to the Hochplatte beforehand, but because of the poor visibility we left it on the left. When you have reached the Höhenweg behind the Hochalm, it is very stony and slippery up to the Kampenwand when wet. You should be sure-footed here. When you stand in front of the Kampenwand, you can walk straight to the summit in 30 minutes (partially insured mountain trail), left to the Sonnenalm (Kampenwandbahn mountain station) and right around to the Steinlingalm. Due to time constraints and weather conditions, we turned back here and took a longer break on the beautiful, quiet Piesenhauser Hochalm. There are no hot dishes here, only alpine pastures and delicious cakes.
On the descent we made a short detour via the Friedenrath. The path is not marked or signposted, but it is always easy to see. The descent from the Friedenrath is very steep, slippery and actually not recommended.

Always worth a visit: Burghausen Castle and the old town.
At 1051 m it is the longest castle in the world. You can take a wonderful walk here and enjoy the views. At the end of the castle complex by the main castle, it goes west down to the Wöhrsee (bathing lake), over to the powder tower, around the castle complex, through the craft mile Grüben to the listed old town. From there there are several climbs back to the castle.
Along the way through the Grüben there are bronze plates of honor from world stars of jazz ("Jazzstadt" Burghausen for 50 years).
Tip: in the morning over the Salzach over to Austria and from there enjoy the view of the entire castle complex including the old town. Then you have the sun behind you.
In Berchtesgadener Straße there is a viewing car park from which you can see the entire castle complex (see the last two photos). Best in the afternoon.
The Altstadt Café is wonderfully located directly on the Salzach and is nice and quiet.

A small round trip over the Breitenstein without any difficulties worth mentioning.
On the way to the Bucheralm you can choose the forest path or, 15 minutes shorter, walk through the forest. The forest path is not recommended when it is wet.
If you want to stop at one of the huts, you should find out beforehand whether they are open. The Hubertushütte at the top near the summit unfortunately had a day of rest on our tour. But we ate delicious on the Kesselalm.
We had bad luck with the quickly rising fog. That's why we didn't hike any further from the Bockstein to the Breitenstein.
Parking fee (as of 2020): 5 EUR

Today we went on another spontaneous bike tour with no fixed destinations in the Erding district. There were only a few key points. There were no special highlights in terms of landscape. But we got by without any busy roads and were often on dirt roads.
The climb to Riedersheim is tough. But the small beer garden at Wirt 'z Riedersheim is worth it.
To get around the farm in Reisach you have to drive around the fence on the right.
The Gasthaus Rauch in Grucking is usually always worth a detour, but due to time constraints we didn't stop there this time.
The Kronthaler Weiher is only touched by the edge, so that you do not notice the crowds here.

Nice leisurely tour on (mostly) little-used roads and dirt roads. Past some bathing lakes, through the Notzinger Moos, Hinteres Finsingermoos and many corn and grain fields. The federal road 388 is crossed twice. You might have to wait a little with a lot of traffic. South of the B388, it is surely nicer to turn left immediately towards the BR broadcasting station, and not to diverge past the horse farm. We originally wanted to drive differently, but a thunderstorm was on the way.
