The Allgäu and its meadows
The Allgäu is also famous for its happy cows and delicious milk. It's amazing to see again and again that even in large forest clearings there are many cultivated meadows with farm animals.
Fans of birds of prey will be surprised at how many people are currently hunting.
The whole way is very sunny and very light in the woods.
A few very short stretches of the route are already slightly overgrown, but the route is almost perfectly signposted. As a stop, I recommend the Bergmang Alpe (note opening times) or the Schihütte restaurant at approx.
All in all, a very long hike, but a nice tour for those who want to hike rather flat.

Day II in Füssen leads us to the Salober Alm.
Above Alatseestrasse, a shady and lonely forest path leads us directly to Alatsee.
After a short walk at the lake, we turn up to the Salober Alm, which opens at 10:00 a.m., is closed on Mondays and is even open until December. The path is a wide forest path that the alpine pasture operator also uses by car. The mountain pasture is very large, offers shady places, beautiful views and snacks and drinks.
Back to the lake you finally come to the bathing area and a few good entrances into the lake. The water was fresh but really not too cold, at least not when I visited in late July.
You almost don't want to go away anymore.
The whole way back leads us mostly through sparse forest at the Alatsee, the Faulenbach, the Obersee and the Mittersee.
According to Google, the forest management at Mittersee has good reviews (Bavarian cuisine) and also offers a terrace.
From there you are in a few minutes through the "Valley of the Senses" in Bad Faulenbach.
A perfect day, especially on hot days, with beautiful lakes and swimming fun.

Day I in Füssen leads us on royal paths through Füssen and to Neuschwanstein and back.
The old town is very small, but worth seeing and in the view "Hohes Schloss" is an unmistakable landmark of the city.
At the church of Our Lady on the Mountain, sinful men are also welcome to hike up the Stations of the Cross to Calvary. Once at the top and refined, it goes to the beautiful Swan Lake. Some small official bathing spots should be used quietly.
The next fantastic lake is already waiting. The Alpsee.
Hohenschwangau Castle and submissive tourists await your arrival to hike towards Neuschwanstein with you and your hiking shoes and their flip-flops to Neuschwanstein Castle.
I know the castle itself from earlier times, in winter when it is quieter.
Would you like to go to the Marienbrücke bridge that crosses the Pöllatschlucht? Gladly if you have time to stand behind about 120 people who do not keep a distance. Incidentally, this can be seen at every lookout point and on the hiking trails around the castle.
It goes down to the Pöllatschlucht and in some places to tread water and cool your feet.

From Prien am Chiemsee to Aying, from fish to the brewery so that it swims.
The connecting road to the Simsee is relatively relaxed and comfortable. For those who want it to be a bit quieter and a few more meters higher, I recommend driving via Greimharting, Thalkirchen to the Simsee. Especially today it was still very cloudy in Chiemgau and only a few die-hard swimmers were to be found at the lake.
After Rosenheim it is mostly on bike paths, mostly right next to the main road, but to do everything without problems.
Advantage on weekdays: enough bakeries and butchers line the way.
Once in Rosenheim it goes straight down to the Mangfall bike path. I was really surprised how beautiful it is and how well-kept the paths are.
Blue and white skies accompanied me to Aying.
Unfortunately, there was nothing to stop at because there were already too many people in the queue.
Where others have to go on vacation, we can cycle :-)

Interesting, exciting, surprising hike from Bad Endorf via Eggstätt-Hemhofer Seenplatte to Prien am Chiemsee.
In the area of the Lake District, I chose over 1/3 of the paths, some of which are barely recognizable, overgrown and in no way signposted.
Not for families with small children or inexperienced hikers who are stuck without a GPS device. These sections are not suitable for cyclists.
What do you get for it? Absolutely quiet, few hidden entrances to the lake that apparently only know the Chiemgau natives, then I startled a few of them when I came out of the bushes :-)
Summer, moisture and warmth also love a few insects. Long pants and a long-sleeved shirt are required.
I recommend the Bad Endorf website with recommended hikes
bad-endorf.de/wandern#/de/bad-endorf/default/search/Tour/Wandern/difficulty:1.5/distance:0,100/duration:0,10/climb:0,2000 /roundtour:0/reststop:0/family:0/Lat:47.902719999999995/Lng:12.299468800000001/view:gallery/sort:relevance/hideSearchForm:1Bathing and refreshments at the VIP beach kiosk at 16.4 km where the Prien flows into the Bay of Sheep Wash in Lake Chiemsee. Changing rooms and toilets are available. The kiosk turns out to be fairly priced with its interiors and terrace.
All in all a really exciting hike and suitable for everyone when changes are made to some of the routes.

Relaxed bike tour through the Bavarian Alpine foothills.
From Tutzing to Lake Starnberg, Osterseen to Wolfratshausen.
My originally planned route (see km 24.2, railway underpass) over the motorway bridge towards Eitzenberg was interrupted by a sign. The motorway bridge is closed to pedestrians and cyclists due to construction work.
So back towards Iffeldorf to use the underpass. A worthwhile alternative if you visually hide the short piece through the Penzberg industrial area. The junction Seeshaupterstraße leads you through a very narrow, but also very short "alley" (grass path). One thinks the first few meters that it will never go there because it is narrow and overgrown, but after a few meters the path becomes ready again and can be used by every bicycle.
I really enjoyed this tour. It can be extended and adapted to the route without any problems.

From Weßling S-Bahn it goes directly to the Weßlinger See.
This is fed solely from underground sources
and has been supplied with oxygen by a fountain in the middle of the lake since the 1970s. There are no fish there.We continue past fields, through the forest, past the Wörthsee Golf Club to the Wörthsee.
The lake, which is privately owned, is densely built up in some places, but there are also opportunities to get into the lake for swimming on the east side.
If you cut short into the forest at the end of the lake at the campsite like me, you should wear long trousers, spray yourself with Autan and put a mosquito net over yourself. You should have Fenistil with you for aftercare.
I recommend extending at Wörthsee Straße and walking along Inninger Straße.
If you want to stop in Hechendorf, I recommend the Landgasthof & Hotel Alter Wirt. From there it continues on the really great old train path to Seefelder Straße.
Below is the Pilsensee, the second smallest in the Five Lakes region. After its formation at the end of the last ice age, it was initially part of the Ammersee, but its progressive silting then led to a separation of the two lakes.
Schloß Seefeld houses a restaurant, cinema and small shops. The private castle interiors cannot be visited.
Behind the castle park, the path leads along a small stream to the Widdersberger pond, which was created as a reservoir in the 16th century and is now also used as a fish pond. Of course, also privately owned.
It continues through the partly sparse forest on various ways to get to Herrsching.
Either you go directly to the S-Bahn, or make a small detour to Carla's coffee house with a few seats in the front on the street, or with more seats in the interior and on the rear terrace. Otherwise, the Ammersee calls for further activities.

Starnberg -Maisinger Gorge - Maisinger See - Andechs Monastery - Herrsching.First class hike with a lot of geological history through the beautiful Alpine foothills. It is very quiet to go to the Andechs Monastery until you come to the Holy Mountain. A visit to the church is definitely worth it until you find your way to Herrsching off the beaten track. Another crowd of visitors come to meet there. If you still feel like a boat trip on the Ammersee, I recommend the shorter southern tour of just over an hour.

Hike along the Würm from Planegg to Untermenzing.
This tour is particularly suitable in the morning on hot days because it is mostly partially shaded. Always amazing for me to discover these hidden gems.
Living and living on the river and the people who use these corners for quieter leisure and bathing fun. The route can of course be extended as you like, although it would be preferable to go south. Also recommended as a tour by bike to Starnberg.

The Weihenstephan Gardens have been open to the public again since 4.5.2020.
For the outward and return journey, it is always along the Isar, on both sides. No matter how high the temperatures are, it is mostly slightly shady on the way, which makes the trip very relaxed. On the way there are always gravel banks for a break or a swim. The path through Freising leads us through the middle of the small and charming city center, with its churches, well-preserved buildings, restaurants, cafes and shops. From there it is only a short walk to the sighting garden. Admission is free and visitors don't get in each other's way because there is never a lot of people. Especially in the back, it is even quieter and more relaxed for the break. Clean toilets are available.
On the way back through Freising, one of the cafes is recommended before going back to Munich on the way back through Fischergasse. If you want to shorten something, take the S-Bahn from Freising to Munich or drive the 10km to the airport visitor park and take the S-Bahn there.
