Today again in the south of Germany a dream day in winter. Pure sunshine with up to 14 degrees in the afternoon.Relatively early at 10:00 a.m. at 8 degrees we started a round trip south from Munich to Aying, a village with one of the most famous breweries in the Munich area. When planning, I made sure that relatively few routes lead through the forest, because who wants to drive in the shade in full sunshine. In the morning there was next to nothing going on on the streets and paths, and above all no broken glass on the paths. Cafes and almost all restaurants were of course closed. Yes, that's how winter can be if you're a cyclist

Since I don't usually ride my bike in winter, I couldn't withstand the warm temperatures today and it was beautiful.
A bit along the Isar, over to the Schleissheim Canal, the path brought me directly to Schleißheim Palace. Most of the way was on bike and forest trails. The castle is always worth a visit and especially at this time it is very quiet.
On the way back we went through the district of Hasenbergl, a district with social housing, but a main street towards the city center with such wide pedestrian and bike paths, then separated from the parked cars by wide green strips that I haven't seen for a long time.
If you just run down your nose, you'll see amazing things in a city where you thought you knew almost everything. The people enjoyed the sunshine and the tables in the cafes in the sunny outdoor area were well filledI wish you a happy new year and stay healthy!

The last day in October with full sun and pleasant temperatures.
From Starnberg it went first through the Maisinger Gorge to the Maisinger See. On the further journey I left Andechs Monastery on the right and was surprised how many people had already walked to the Holy Mountain in the morning. In Herrsching, I started out with a cappu in my favorite cafe. On to the Pilsensee and Wörthsee. There is less going on on the west bank than on the east bank, where most of the pedestrians are. The passage through the Golf Club Wörthsee is very relaxed and worthwhile because of the quiet location. From Gilching on I let my navigation system lead me home without having explicitly planned this section beforehand. Great tour, I can highly recommend it.

I already knew part of the tour from older hikes. This time I wanted to explore the route from Gersoldsee to Gschwandterbauern. This is a very good forest path with small counter-climbs that you can easily walk on or, with a bit of fitness, you can cycle. At a junction you can decide to take the forest path a further 3.8 km to the Gschwandterbauern or to walk in about 15 minutes through the forest on a clearly recognizable hiking trail.
You can find out more about the rest days on their website. I had my coffee break today on the Pfeifferalm on the sunny terrace and with a magnificent view.

Today we took the S-Bahn to the starting point in Holzkirchen and from there to Bad Tölz, a climatic health resort.
In the old town of Tözer there was the motorcycle oldtimer meeting of the Oiden Hund today.
Due to a small tour bad planning on my part, I led the tour on the Tölzer Landstrasse for too long, so that I later decided to turn right to continue on very good dirt roads and small quiet roads. Such beautiful village names as Lochen, Berg, Geilertshausen, Altkirchen etc. are on the way.
All hell broke loose in the Perlacher Forst, on the straight bike racing path. Everyone wanted to take advantage of this great weather today before it gets colder again next week.
Since I had not eaten a single bite apart from a frugal breakfast (after all, I had nothing but water) I stopped by the Perlacher Hof in Munich after 71 km. A small, beautiful and quiet beer garden with a juicy and tender roast pork and two kinds of dumplings. Finally, apricot dumplings on plum.
All in all, a very nice tour.

From Murnau along the Staffelsee, to the Osterseen, Starnberger See, Tutzing, Ilkahöhe and to Herrsching am Ammersee.
I've already ridden the tour this year, but today with a slightly different route.
It is simply wonderful to drive along the lake landscape and to enjoy the view of the Bavarian foothills again and again.
Today, however, there was a lot going on early in the morning on the train to Murnau and the bike compartments were completely overcrowded. On the route, too, I had the feeling that everyone who owns a bike is on the go. The return from Herrsching by S-Bahn, however, was problem-free.

With the hiking clique we went from Geitau to the Wendelstein in fresh temperatures. The rush of visitors was very large in terms of hikers and gondola drivers, but it was still acceptable and we found our place on the summit. Then it went back over the Wendelstein Almen to the Berggasthof Siglhof. The coffee and cake were only available in Bayrischzell at Cafe Huber with a large outdoor terrace.

From Freising, the ducal seat of the first Bavarian tribal duchy, the tour goes to Allershausen, a small community at the mouth of Glonn in the Amper.
We continue across the country to Pfaffenhofen an der Ilm, in the vicinity there were traces of settlement from the Bronze Age, today a beautiful district town with a wide range of leisure activities for the whole family. On the Ilm there is a beautiful swimming pool from the Bürgerpark, sports fields and climbing facilities.
Then the country tour takes us to the Hallertau, a cultural landscape with 2,400 km², the largest contiguous hop-growing area in the world.
Past the Nöttinger Heide, a typical heather landscape, the path brings us to the Danube, the second longest and second largest river in Europe after the Volga.
Our destination is Ingolstadt, the second largest city in Upper Bavaria. The city is not only known for AUDI, Airbus Defense and Space, and the oil industry, but also for its ancient and historical history. There are still many historical buildings in the city center.
