A beautiful easy but long hike through the Rupertiwinkel.
This tour is easily accessible by public transport. From Traunstein the train takes us directly to Ruhpolding. Soon you have left the community, always wanders along a small river along with beautiful views out of the valley into the mountain landscape. Later it goes into the forest on wide forest roads after some time to meet after a small increase in altitude on the bog experience path Inzell. Here we make a short detour on perfectly maintained paths to hike through the middle of the moor. Past Inzell you will reach Krottensee, a wonderful nature experience. We go back the short distance and later turn left to St. Nicholas Church Einsiedl. Back to Inzell on a small street to get to the bus station. This drives on the weekend only every 2 hours and brings us back to Traunstein.

The fruit and culture trail was created by the horticultural associations Prien-Rimsting and Hirnsberg-Pitzing. On the one hand, the old native fruits of our area should be recalled to the memory of the population and recruited for their planting. On the other hand, this trail shows very beautiful as orchards, forest and field, churches, chapels, crosses, shrines, village squares and neat house facades, which form for centuries in the Alpine foothills existing rural landscape. This is still well preserved on the Ratzinger height with their foothills.The trail leads through sunny, sometimes shady areas such as dirt roads, trails and low-traffic roads, uphill and downhillA brochure is available for download from the Tourismusverband Prien

Nice summer bike ride along the Isar
From Munich, it goes down the river on the right side always along the Isar. The way to Freising is very well signposted. Especially in the hot summer, this tour is particularly worthwhile, because the road leads almost always to Freising through sparse and cooler forest on wide forest roads.
The last 5km before Freising the path leads first to the right and then back to the left until you arrive at the Korbinianbrücke in Freising. From there it is easy to go to the city and continue to the shrub garden Weihenstephan. Admission is free and well worth the whole summer. A place with peace and a lot to see and take pictures of.
Back it goes back to the city center, evt stop in the inn or cafe, to the cathedral and brewery and much more. Back at the Isar but this time upriver on the right side. Stand 09/2019 you have to change because of construction later again on the other side of the river or drive a small detour. No worries everything is signposted.
On this side of the river there is also the possibility to walk on trails to the Isar and to take a break in the gravel bed.
A relaxed and beautiful bike ride on the Isar, recommended for everyone!

A wonderful, fantastic hike in the Zugspitze region.
Starting point is the station Untergrainau.
In a few minutes you are in Huberpark with its natural trails.
The path leads us along the Krepbach along with views over meadows and into the mountain landscape.
In quiet little streets one crosses Grainau to turn soon towards Badersee. Now it goes on wide, excellent hiking trails upwards later to descend a bit to Badersee again. An idyllic lake like a fairytale. Only the big, but certainly great hotel breaks this up a bit. A little tip: There you should be able to organize good celebrations with a view over the lake and in the evening with individual illuminated trees on the lake.
Further, it leads through the sparse forest, mostly upwards towards the Eibsee. After a total of over 6 km hike you are on the popular Eibsee. I recommend starting in the left direction (Zugspitze side), because the sun in the morning wonderfully illuminates the opposite side. Later on the other side, depending on the month / season, the Zugspitze massif is relatively well lit.
What can you say about the Eibsee? Incredibly beautiful. A wonder of nature.
You will find in the later course, a small swimming area and more towards the end also the possibility to go to the lake more often.
Back to the beginning of our tour around the lake you could go back to the starting point at the lake to visit one of the restaurants with of course higher prices (pork roast over 12 euros). But the view is okay!
Now it is a little bit back on the same path, until we later take the path over the tracks of the Zugspitzbahn direction Grainau. Once there, at the stop "Zugspitzbahn Grainau" ends this beautiful tour.
Tip: If you only have a football ticket, you have to pay 3 Euro (as of 08/2019) for the ride on the Zugspitze Railway to Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Only the Bayernticket also includes this trip.

One of my favorite tours, which is also popular with other hikers and mountain bikers in part.
From the Tegernsee train station it soon goes into the densely forested forest and over the Bayernweg to Neureuth. Once there we leave the forest and you come out at the inn Neureuth. If you do not want to stop, turn left and walk directly to the Gindelalmen. Depending on the summer month, 1 or all 3 Gindelalmen are managed for the hiker
On their website
can read when the pastures are open for the hiker. Despite high attendance rate for me a place of relaxation with delicious drinks and food.
Now it goes up again direction Gindelalmschneid and left direction Kreuzbergalm, but first down and then up again. This alp is also cultivated in summer and prepares fresh buttermilk, cool drinks and a snack for the hiker. The view is beautiful and you know why the Bavarian Alps are so popular.
From now on, it's all relaxed down to Tegernsee. The Alpbach accompanied on the second half with its cold water, the Gumpen and the water noise.
The goal is again the railway Hog Tegernsee.

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.

A beautiful tour with lots of forest, water, original nature and views.
The tour can be easily reached by train. Starting point is the railway station Altenau at Saulgrub and destination is Saulgrub train station.
Quick you have left the small village Altenau and runs the first 2.5 km across meadows and fields with wonderful views and almost total silence.
Then it goes into the forest with the first steps. Good footwear and sure-footedness are highly recommended, as it can be very slippery due to the damp ground. On the whole tour you do not have to be free from giddiness.
At waypoint 4km you reach the bridge over the river Ammer and the hydroelectric power station. There in front of the gate is on the left a Kneipp arm basin with constant inflow of water from a spring. The water is directly drinkable from the tap.
At the bridge it also goes to the Scheibum. At the very back the short cemented path has unfortunately broken off along the wall. Beware of flood!
The Schleierfälle is built at km 7.2. Please note this is a nature reserve and the falls must not be entered, otherwise all over centuries deposited lime (tuff layers) and mosses will be destroyed. From the side and from the riverbed can still make very good photos without the Schleierfälle must suffer.
The path continues through the forest with many steps up and down. The Soiernmühle is not managed.
For the last time, it goes steeply uphill and at the top opens a wide landscape with goats and Irish cattle. One last time out of the forest along the trail to Saulgrub. There you can, for example, stop off at the country inn "Zum bavrischen Paradies" which, in contrast to other guesthouses, is open during the week during the week.

Start of the tour is the train station of Murnau. From there you walk the lake to the south along the west. The Seerundweg is excellently signposted, but you should still have a map with you. In the west extends the wonderful nature reserve, where many birds can be discovered insects and flowers. Provision should be enough, since the first refreshment only exists in Uffing. In this area there is always the possibility to get directly to the lake and to swim there or to visit one of the bathing establishments.
In the north you unfortunately have to walk away from the lake and along the railway tracks. Not a very nice way, but the view of the mountains makes this worthwhile anyway. The distance about 3 km from Murnau you can of course make your own and go down to the lake, unlike my way.

A wonderful, technically easy tour for the whole family. Start and end point is Mittenwald train station.
Since the ascent over the Lainbach was still blocked due to flood protection measures (as of 20.07.2019) we took the signposted diversion over the Lauterseeweg, but we immediately turned right into the signposted forest path to the Lautersee. There is a little surprise for the young and old in the forest. A forest adventure path to join in and with interesting information.
The lake we have circled over the Lauterseen Stubn then later turn right towards Ederkanzel. Up there at the inn you have next to the refreshment also a beautiful view of the mountains, the one on the further descent to Leutasch remains denied, until you are back down.
As soon as you cross the Leutasch at the bridge, take a break right at the bottom of the river and refresh yourself. Opposite is also an inn, if hunger and thirst must be satisfied.
Continue down the river on the wide forest road. Rather for children are always panels on the side with stories about the ghosts.
Then it goes into the gorge (for free, no fees!) And you walk on safe jetties, with grates on the ground directly above the river on the side of the gorge walls. Do not worry even for small children no problem!
The way is longer than you probably thought at the beginning, and there are always steps. The path is not barrier-free (!)
The small turnoff to the chapel can be saved from a purely tourist point of view.
Once at the bottom, go right to the inn. There you can against entry 3.-Euro (adults) still see the waterfall path. Even at 30 degrees outside, it is very fresh there!
The way back to Mittenwald is relatively short. If you want to enjoy homemade pies and delicious coffee just before the train station, I recommend the pastry shop and cafe: Cafébar Paula in Innsbruckertstr. 1.
