      Today I will take you to my place of birth on a short circular hike, which I have taken at least 100 times without exaggeration. It goes down the Alz on the Feichtener side. That is in the district of Altötting. This path was laid out on his own initiative by my father. Later, the Road and River Construction Office continued to maintain this path and used it as an official hiking trail.
      The way back leads upstream on the Tachertinger side. That is in the district of Traunstein.
      The Alz is a very beautiful river. It rises from the Chiemsee near Seebruck and flows into the Inn after 63 km near Marktl.
      I was surprised how popular this circular hike has become.
      In my youth I only met an angler or one or two on this hiking trail
      oncoming hikers.
      On this Sunday we met a lot of hikers and there were people everywhere on the sandbanks and on the rocks
      enjoyed the beautiful day.
      In addition, the Alz has become popular with kayakers, as you can see in the pictures.
      Is that a temporary corona hype? I do not think so! However, because of Corona, many people have only discovered that nature has a lot to offer very close to them.

      The Schaurachgraben is in the southeastern part of my hike. A Komoot highlight attracted me.
      I started in Oberelkofen near the country school home. The way led me mostly through landscape protection areas. I hiked along a beautiful stretch of the Attel, even though it was actually a dead end. But with a brave jump I was able to jump over the small Schwarzgraben and then I was very close to the Schaurachgraben. At first I was disappointed because this is a very small stream that babbles along the lower course almost at ground level. I then followed up the stream. Everything is always beautiful dirt roads and very lonely. Only after crossing the country road between Straussdorf and Aßling did I have to walk a little bit over a meadow. However, it is possible that this meadow is fenced in in summer. In the forest I came across a tractor track that soon led me back to the stream. A really nice path that is not shown in Komoot. The brook has already dug itself really deep there. But it was to get better. The real highlight was still ahead of me.
      The way back was less spectacular. He took me back to Oberelkofen via Straussdorf and Elkofen Castle.

      Many thanks to HorstAP for this hiking suggestion.
      With the best weather and on Sunday too, the parking lot near Possenhofen was already well occupied. We then had to do the beautiful promenade with a mask. There were just too many people around.
      In the extensive castle park of Possenhofen there are large green areas that can be used as sunbathing areas.
      In the castle park you can see small turrets with remains of walls from the former castle wall. The castle itself is very nice to look at, in excellent condition, but privately owned and therefore not accessible.
      At Feldafing, just before you see the rose island, there is a 90-year-old bathing establishment. This building is made entirely of wood and is arranged in a U-shape in front of the lake, so that the bathing area cannot be seen from the outside. 90 years ago people didn't want to be seen bathing.
      The way back over the golf course up to Feldafing and through the Starzenbach gorge was wonderful.

      Here is a suggestion for a playground rally in Fürstenried Ost. From the Forstenrieder Allee underground station, head straight for Südpark. There the forest playground was restored, significantly improved and reopened. You can read more details in the highlight and below.
      The way back leads over the "sports and leisure mile in the south park", which has also been significantly upgraded.
      Between Autobahn-Wall and Schaffhauser Strasse is another public playground and in the southern part of this short tour is a very nice adventure playground.
      That should be enough to motivate the children to hike from one playground to the next.
      Don't forget snacks and drinks! There is plenty of seating.
      And now some personal information about the reopened forest playground in Südpark: I often visited this playground with my children over 20 years ago. The playground was then dismantled in small steps until nothing was left. It was rumored that some people had given themselves because the playground was too hidden in the forest and the children were not safe there. Allegedly that was the pretext for the closure of the playground. Anyway, I'm glad that decision has been reversed. The new development area at Südpark with 2500 new apartments has led to an extensive upgrading of the Südpark. Now it is back, this wonderful forest playground in the Südpark with many attractions, benches and tables.
      You can also celebrate a birthday here.

      What is a moth? More on this below.
      I coped with the time change and was already at the Althegnenberg train station at 9:00 a.m. From there I hiked through the Haspelwald to the village of Haspelmoor. There is also a S-Bahn connection there.
      The moor areas around Haspelmoor are divided into a northern and a southern part by the Munich - Augsburg railway line. The southern part is a nature reserve and I couldn't go my hike as planned. The "nature guards" are trying to ban illegal beaten tracks. In any case, when I was planning, I couldn't go any further and had to reschedule my tour. I have already reported the blocked trail to Komoot. However, I have never received any feedback from Komoot when it comes to blocked paths.
      I actually liked the northern part of the moorland better.
      On the way back through Althegnenberg, this wonderful surprise happened to me:
      In the middle of the village, in the immediate vicinity of the parish church, there is a "mountain chapel" that stands on an artificially raised mountain. This mountain is a fairly regular truncated cone. I knew immediately that it was a moth that was converted into a chapel in later times.
      It is the tower hill that supported the small Hegnenberg castle in the 11th and 12th centuries. Such moths were typical castles of the Salier period. These tower buildings can be assigned to the lower nobility or the ministerial without exception.
      The Hegnenbergs were those ministerials who were able to expand their political influence and finally founded the Hofmark Hegnenberg. This domain lasted for over 500 years.
      The small town of Althegnenberg has even more visible buildings from the Middle Ages, namely the listed old forge and the former farmyard of the castle.
      In 1995 the moat with the bridge and the adjoining Schmiedegasse were restored.
      Althegnenberg is now a very beautiful place. You can read more in the highlight.

      A suggestion for a city walk in Fürstenried. First you pass the Fürstenried Castle, which gave the entire district its name. Then the path leads over the forest cemetery and over the Südpark back to the U3, Forstenrieder Allee.
      The Italian military cemetery is easy to find in the forest cemetery. There are dozen of signposts that point to this sad place. You can read more about it in the highlight.
      I am happy that as a year old close to retirement I have never had to go through war.

      I did this tour in 2009, but back then without navigation. I still remember how I kept getting lost in the forest. But even with Komoot Navigation we got lost in one place today. Extensive forests with their many wooden paths have their pitfalls.
      I was very sad when I saw that the ancient trees of the avenue leading to the church "Maria im Elend" were cut down. Pity!
      However, the outstanding highlight of this hike was the Dietramszeller forest pond. This pond is big enough to be called a lake. In any case, it is a very idyllic place that you should definitely visit if you are in the area. You can also swim there in summer.
      A modern cemetery was built on the opposite side of the bathing area. A cemetery in which the function of the tombstones is replaced by trees. You can read more about it in the highlight.

      Many thanks to HorstAP. This hike is largely based on his inspiration.
      In Berg there is a large parking lot, where the beautiful lime tree avenue begins. A beautiful path with a very good view. We went to the St. Anna chapel.
      It was a wonderful day for a family hike.
      Again and again we saw horses that were not ridden but taken for a walk. I guess they'll have to get back in shape after the winter break.
      You can see that we were in the very south near Allmanshausen but unfortunately had to turn around. We just have to get back in shape first.
      The way back via the Heinz-Rühmann hiking trail was impressive and the final mountain panorama in front of the pilgrimage church of the Assumption was the ideal way to end it.
      Many thanks to the nice couple who offered us their bench.

      A very lengthy tour, the purpose of which was mainly to burn fat. In times of working from home, I miss the regular way to work by bike.
      I was surprised how many cyclists were in the southern part of the tour near Wolfersberg.
      I really liked the former Bucher mud bath. It is a very hidden, idyllically situated pond.
      In the forest in front of Wolfersberg I discovered a very nice stretch of route for hikers. It's actually a dead end, but as a hiker you can get there on an old wooden path. This path is impassable for bicycles. The path that then opens up is beautiful and varied. Old and young trees alternate and there is even a beautiful clearing halfway along. Wonderful peace, solitude and pure nature.

      On Sunday, before the big snowfall, I did this hike in Chiemgau. It is guaranteed Corona compatible! Only 8 people met me in total. But I actually expected that I wouldn't meet anyone. Hiking seems to be growing in popularity!
      This hike leads along the banks of the Alz to my father's forest hut. Then it's back, via Feichten an der Alz. Most of the way back is on asphalt, but I only saw one car in total.
