      From the Fürstenfeld monastery in Fürstenfeldbruck, we went south on the western bank path of the Amper. Between Schöngeising and Grafrath, the riverside path turned into a beaten path, which (also with nettles) was so overgrown and slippery from the rain that I turned back and used the cycle path next to the road to Grafrath.At the Ulrichsbrunnen on the high bank of the Amper in Grafrath there is a tranquil resting place. Between Grafrath and the Ammersee there is no riverside path on the Amper, because the Ampermoos is approx. 1 km wide there. At Kottgeisering, a nature observation tower can be climbed at the beginning of the Ampermoos.From Eching am Ammersee a narrow, currently rather softened path leads on the north bank to Stegen, or you can take the bike path next to the motorway. At the bathing spots in Stegen, the lake also offers shallow spots in the bay.From Inning it went back east of the Amper to FFB. On this side there are fewer opportunities to cycle near the shore than on the west side. Because of the Amperschlucht gorge near Grafrath, the signposted “nahTourBand” path leads up over a hill in the forest.The former Fürstenfeld monastery was one of the former house monasteries of the Wittelsbach family. The monastery church of St. Maria is considered a major work of the southern German late baroque. Numerous top artists were involved in the equipment. The height and width of the church interior are impressive and appear very uniform despite the long construction and furnishing period.

      The journey to hell means the place hell, which is at the upper entrance of the hell valley.
      The Höllental in the Franconian Forest is the gorge-like river valley of the Selbitz between the places Hölle and Blechschmidtenhammer in the district of Hof and is under nature protection.
      On the western bank of the Selbitz runs the Höllentalstraße, a private road that is closed to car traffic and is used as a cycling and hiking trail.
      An outcrop of fossil pillow lava on one of the steep flanks of the valley and the diabase rock are worth seeing. Diabase was made into tools such as axes, hatchets, blades, drills and scrapers as early as the Stone Age.

      The further route led up the Selbitz valley to Berg and then down to Blankenstein on the Franconian Saale, where the Rennsteig begins.The further route ran from Blechschmidtenhammer, first along the Moschwitz brook on the former inner-German border. This path is more recommended for lovers of root trails. The Kolonnenweg above would be more suitable for cyclists.

      The couple breakthrough is one of the most idyllic natural areas in the Wittelsbacher Land. In this original oxbow lake, the couple meanders in their original river bed and is bordered by a natural white willow forest.The best way to explore the landscape is on a hike or a walk, for example on the circular hiking trail “Zum Paardurchbruch”. A display board tells you which natural treasures are in the area and why the couple was included in the European Natura 2000 network of protected areas. Source: wittelsbacherland.de

      The world forest has been open to the public under this name since 2011. For this purpose, among other things, circular paths and information pavilions were created. Before that, the collection of various, sometimes exotic, trees was created primarily for scientific purposes at the two universities in Freising.
      The forest path-like circular paths can also be used by bicycles for viewing. For further exploration on foot, you can take small side paths to signposted trees and bushes, see komoot.de/tour/187988324 and komoot.de/tour/177730857
      In the Ampertal, to Wippenhausen, the AAR (Ammer-Ampertal-Radweg) leads on paved side roads to Langenbach. From Langenbach it went at a narrow point over relatively low hills to the Isar. There the small river Moosach flows into the Isar near Oberhummel. The cycle path ran to Freising between the Isar and the Moosach. There I chose the cycle bypass from the center of Freising via Wiesenthal, past the Wieskirche, the “Plantage” beer garden and the forest adventure trail.The Wieskirche near Freising is a Catholic pilgrimage church, which, like the well-known example of the Wieskirche near Steingaden, bears the same name "To the Scourged Savior". When entering the rectangular nave, the curtain figuratively rises to the transversely built, oval sanctuary, which cannot be entered.The Moosach is the companion of the Isar and flows for many kilometers to Freising right next to the Isar, only separated from the Isar by the cycle path used here.
      I find it interesting that the Isar uses its groundwater flow to determine how much spring water the Moosach receives. Furthermore, the Moosach can partly also be counted as a tributary of the Amper, due to the derivation as Mühlbach near Oberhummel.

      Forest adventure trail in Freising
      The forest adventure path is a varied circular route of around 2 km in length. It begins and ends at the “Plantage” restaurant. At 23 stations you can get to know the forest better - once playfully, once exploring, once contemplative.

      From Königsbrunn we went on the “Via Claudia” cycle path through the Lechauen and the city forest to the old town of Augsburg. The “Via Claudia” cycle path offers two alternative routes in the city of Augsburg, one through the center of Augsburg and the other on the east bank of the Lech past the center. The way back was the alternative route on the east bank of the Lech and further along the Lech to the south of the Mandicho lake.The old, 5-6 meter high fig bush on the wall of the Basilica of St. Ulrich and Afra survived the last winter unscathed.The art installation “Glasarche” will be on display in front of Augsburg Cathedral until August 9, 2021. The idea is explained at glasarche-3.de/die-arche/idee. The route of this art object can be found at glasarche-3.de/die-arche/reiseroute

      From the Ayinger S-Bahn station, we first went up to the summit of the Graf Aygo pass, then via the town of Münster to the Steinsee.The long driveway from Doblbach through the forest was worth it when driving out into the clearing of the Sonnenhausen high plateau and the surprise at the sight of the beautiful estate and farmhouse.Past Zinneberg Castle, it went down to Glonn. Back the track crossed in Münster and formed a somewhat angular eight with the further course of the route via Egmating.

      The starting point of this stage of the Danube Cycle Path is Leipheim.
      With its location on the Danube, Leipheim not only offers special nature experiences but also a lot of history. The old town with castle, church, historical buildings as well as the rectangular city wall and the city moat invite you to linger. Those who want to get to know the past better can do so in the “Blue Duck” local history and farmers' war museum. The focus here is on the story of the first great battle of the Peasants' War.

      The destination of this stage of the Danube cycle path is Lauingen.
      Lauingen is not called the "city of towers" for nothing. Immerse yourself in a historic old town that has a lot to offer, including the famous Schimmelturm.
      The Obermedlingen collegiate church is a real surprise.
      In 1700 the foundation stone for the new construction of the monastery and today's collegiate church was laid. The furnishings are kept in an elegant early baroque white, to which the altars, confessionals, rows of seats, the choir stalls, the organ and the pulpit made of dark brown wood create a harmonious contrast. The inlay work is extremely noteworthy.
      The wooden pulpit in the Baroque style has a polygonal pulpit over an inverted cone, which is carried by two putti. Its surfaces are structured by angel caryatids with flower chains and are covered with pushed-on fillings.

      Bird observation tower at Mooswaldsee
      There you can observe the feathered diversity with the permanently installed telescope. Information boards help to identify the birds.
      Here you can experience the impressive spectacle when in the evening hundreds of gray geese fly in on rustling wings over the observation tower onto the Mooswaldsee to spend the night.
      The Leipheimer Moos and the wild Mooswald cover around 500 hectares of natural landscape. Source: bayerisch-schwaben.de/a-vogel-beobachtungsturm-am-mooswaldsee

      It is always nice to walk around Lake Starnberg. In summer there is hardly enough time to take a closer look at the many highlights and you can only choose the most beautiful ones from the places to stop for a break.On a foehny warm day in December 2019, the places to stop for refreshments were clearer

      This time there were few pictures enjoying nature and talking to Klaus was in the foreground.A couple of pictures are from around April 20th, 2021 when I did the same tour before. This is immediately noticeable in the vegetation and is also used for comparison. The old little house in the beginning of the tour near the castle tent has meanwhile been torn down, there were still some bricks on the ground.
      Further comments are in the picture titles.

      At the end of the 3-day bike tour we went from the familiar base camp instead of heading north, as originally planned along the west bank of the Ammersee, now south towards the Staffelsee, which we did not reach yesterday.After leaving the Ammertal, there was still a bigger hill to climb, from which there was a great mountain panorama. When we arrived in Uffing am Staffelsee, we stopped in the famous Alpenblick am See beer garden. Since the weather was still okay, we drove up to Murnau in the old town. With a light drizzle we stopped there in the courtyard of the Grießbräu brewery restaurant.The sun came out again and so the journey continued to the Ohlstadt train station on the edge of the Murnauer Moos.
