      In April, in the middle of May, a tour to suit my taste: professional commitments in the morning are combined with outdoor fun in the direction of a home base in the Munich bacon belt, and that even in the service of the community.My goal was to get from the given starting point at Max-Weber-Platz "as green as possible" to the self-defined destination in Neuperlach-Süd. There were some destinations that had been on my list of visitors for a long time, such as the septic tank of the Hachinger Bach on Michaelianger. One aspect of the tour was also trying to get a little green from the very urban sections without a pronounced nature, such as around the main traffic arteries, and to get a few corresponding snapshots. I think I managed that quite well at Haidenauplatz and Berg-am-Laim-Straße.Overall, the tour was an absolute highlight for me. When you walk through the city like this, you gradually realize that the gray-brown dirty corners in Munich are outnumbered. Even normal streets and small squares without large monuments or tourist highlights are usually lined with trees, bushes and grass. In addition, there are some super-beautiful wild corners such as the refreshingly unmowed control orchard on Sankt-Michael-Straße or the unspoilt terrain south of the S-Bahn on Rudolf-Zorn-Straße. The Hachinger Bach also impresses a natural note on the Perlach district, despite numerous housing developments. Some tourist highlights such as the Gasteig, Weißenburger Platz (one of my absolute favorite places in the city) or the Ostpark are also included.I hope you enjoy the tour and I'm excited to see where the virtual baton will go in the next few days ...

      City stray tour on the trail of the water: Prelude in Sendling, main stretch along the city streams west of the Isar, end between Praterinsel and Haidhausen.
      - Starting point: Heimeranplatz (U / S)
      - End point: Max-Weber-Platz (U) - Here Alex will take over tomorrow, on whose tour I'm already looking forward to and I wish good luck!
      +++ Tour information +++
      In the 19th century, the Munich urban area was crisscrossed by a dense network of streams and canals, around 175 km long and equipped with 280 water wheels, one spoke of a "Little Venice". The first brooks were built over as early as around 1830, and most of the watercourses were filled in in the 1960s because they were in the way of the densification and expansion of the city and were no longer needed technically. But there is still a big line and a small one, although most of it has so far been banished underground. Things have been moving for a few years now: short sections have been reopened, others are under discussion or planning. The tour explores these lines from Thalkirchen, because you can see them very well on the Komoot map!
      The large line has its origin in the Isarwerk Canal, which merges into the Große Stadtbach on the Flaucher. It once supplied many small canals with water, today it continues as Westermühlbach> Glockenbach> Westlicher Stadtgrabenbach around the old town. At the Hofgarten it flows into the Köglmühlbach and becomes the Schwabinger Bach, which flows far north on the western edge of the English Garden until the water is eventually returned to the Isar. At the edge of the old town, the underground course is quasi symbolic in some large fountains.
      The small line is the Eisbach, which branches off at the Mariannenbrücke as the Fabrikbach from the Große Isar, flows with two arms through the Lehel (Stadtmühlbach) and pours down the Prinzregentenstrasse as a world-famous Eisbach wave into the English Garden.
      I tried to stay as close as possible to the route where the water flows underground. This is not always possible because passages are obstructed or lead over private premises. It is a tour that shows very different facets of the city and touches on some of the tourist highlights, but also areas that dawn a bit. I couldn't help but make little detours.To shorten the stay in public transport, we take a walk through Sendling to the intended starting point of the tour at the Isar Bridge in Thalkirchen.Finally, there is the treat to cross the Isar on the cable bridge, one of the most beautiful places in Munich, I think, and to climb up to Wiener Platz, where you could still stop off in the beer garden. A few meters further on Max-Weber-Platz the subway goes.Further information on individual locations, which I consider to be newsworthy, can be found in the tour highlights (in progress).

      The mayors on the edge of the Alps have triggered the red alarm and see their landscape collapse, the hosts of the beer gardens said in advance that they did not know how they would survive this day. Hopefully things will go off lightly, but the message has arrived. We also remember a similar day years ago, it wasn't funny. So in the morning we walk through the neighborhood quite harmlessly. The city seems to be extinct. Only when we cross a main bike route at the edge of the Nymphenburg Park, it becomes short for a short time. In the park, the number of visitors is almost back to normal, it is not far to the Hirschgarten ...Back home, I listen to the warbler in the tree in front of the house and think about the tour on Sunday. Our community event “Relay Hike” komoot.de/tour/186052679 starts and I'm really excited! Now I only wish that on 2.6. someone catches up with Pia, then we have a continuous tour together over 12 days - this will be very cool! (In the end, two days would still be bookable Tage)

      Liebe Stadtstreuner und Wanderenthusiasten in und um München! Die Berliner waren wieder einmal schneller, aber sei’s drum: Frank Meyer, komoot.de/user/42689717614 , und das komoot-Communitymanagment hatten eine brilliante Idee, wie man in diesen eingeschränkten Zeiten ein Zeichen setzen kann für Zusammenhalt und Unternehmungsgeist. In der Berliner komoot-Szene haben sich schon etliche Wandergruppen etabliert, die derzeit nicht mehr in der gewohnten Form unterwegs sein können. Deshalb entstand die Idee zu einer „virtuellen Wandergruppe“, die eine Staffeltour in Etappen absolviert. Wie das dort aktuell abläuft, könnt ihr hier anschauen: komoot.de/collection/935601/-virtuelle-komoot-staffelwanderung-grossraum-berlin-potsdam-mai-2020 .Mich fasziniert diese Idee auch jenseits des Gruppen-Gedankens, weil sie uns die Möglichkeit gibt, gemeinsam eine Linie oder ein Netz von Touren über unsere Stadt zu legen, wo jede*r, der/die dabei sein möchte, sein/ihr „München“ erwandern und den anderen zeigen kann. Am Ende haben wir zusammen ein hoffentlich sehr buntes Bild unserer Stadt „gestrickt“. - Frank Meyer und Saskia von komoot haben mich nun dazu angestiftet, euch dieses Vorhaben für München vorzuschlagen - es hat mich sofort elektrisiert und ich möchte euch einladen und ermuntern, daran teilzunehmen.+++ Folgender Plan:
      - Ich wandere am 24.05. die erste Etappe von A nach B.
      - Die nächste Person beginnt ihre Tour bei B und wandert nach C, die nächste von C nach D usw.
      - Für jeden Teilnehmer ist nur der Startpunkt (= Endpunkt des Vorgängers) fix, Verlauf und Schlusspunkt bestimmt man selbst und hat dazu alle Freiheiten - einen vorgegebenen Streckenplan gibt es nicht, die Tour entwickelt sich beim Gehen!
      - Ziel ist, im gegebenen Zeitraum eine möglichst lückenlose Tour zu realisieren, eine Weitwanderung durch die Stadt sozusagen.
      +++ Folgende Regeln:
      - Start- und Endpunkt müssen mit ÖPNV gut erreichbar sein, damit alle die gleichen Chancen haben.
      - Die Tourlänge ist beliebig, Minimum 3 km, aber bitte keine MegaMärsche, kein Kräftemessen, weniger ist in diesem Fall mehr. Wer wenig Zeit hat, kann auch eine kürzere Tour zum gemeinsamen Ergebnis beitragen.
      - Nur Streckenwanderungen, keine Rundtouren.
      - Die Tour muss nicht auf das Stadtgebiet beschränkt sein, auch das nähere Umland kann einbezogen werden, aber nicht zu weit raus, damit die gute Erreichbarkeit gegeben bleibt und die Anfahrt nicht zu lang wird.
      - Nach Erreichen des Endpunkts die Etappe schnellstmöglich bei komoot freischalten, damit die nachfolgende Person genug Zeit zum Planen der eigenen Etappe am nächsten Tag hat.
      ***Wichtig: mich als Teilnehmer markieren, damit die Tour in meinem Profil erscheint und ich sie in die Tourcollection einpflegen kann. Für Bildbearbeitung usw. ist später noch genug Zeit.***
      +++ Zur Organisation:
      Ich habe ein Doodle aufgesetzt unter: doodle.com/poll/ydrnku6u3gyuqb64
      Wenn ihr Interesse an dieser Aktion habt, tragt euch dort bitte ein. Ihr braucht nur eure komoot-Userkennung „xxxxx“ eingeben (komoot.de/user/xxxxx), damit ich euren Account eindeutig identifizieren und verlinken kann, weitere Daten brauche ich nicht. Sucht euch euren Wunschtag aus und sendet das Formular ab. Dabei gilt: wer zuerst kommt, mahlt zuerst und hat die freie Auswahl. Bitte schnappt euch nur einen freien 'Slot', wenn ihr auch tatsächlich vorhabt, an dem Tag eure Etappe zu wandern. Ich beginne am 24.05. ihr könnt dann vom 25.05. bis zum 06.06. fortsetzen. Bei großer Nachfrage können wir die Aktion eventuell auch verlängern. Solltet ihr euren festgelegten Termin dennoch nicht wahrnehmen können, schickt mir eine Mail an mail@monacotrail.de, damit ich den Tag wieder für andere Interessenten freigeben kann.
      Die Reihenfolge der Teilnehmer gebe ich hier bekannt, so weit die Tour steht:

      Quiet before the storm: tomorrow the beer gardens open again. Will the parks be empty again? Morning exit in the city border, on varied trails and mostly quiet side routes.Noteworthy discoveries: the worth seeing bio campus of the LMU in Martinsried. The beautiful linden avenue in front of Hanfeld. The idyllically situated Gut Mamhofen - at first glance. A noise barrier separates the seemingly outdated property from the recently built Starnberg "Westtangente", which since then has also cut an old crossing of the state road at Mamhofen. The owner supposedly did not want to give up any additional reason for a bike path, she did not want a “leisure park” around her yard, Ms. Now the cars are racing through the wide aisle and a number of cyclists are wandering around looking for a safe way of crossing. This planning is a real torture. None of the parties involved had probably thought that (in the future) cycling would be more than leisure traffic ...The route to Oberbrunn along a multi-lane overland line also illustrates the term “infrastructure landscape” well. After all, there is an intersection-free crossing of a newly built road.

      Usable connection of three large green areas in the south-west of Munich, indeed in the "area of influence" of the Autobahn and the Mittlerer Ring, so rough terrain, but mostly green. We had already made the morning round similar but more extensive (komoot.de/tour/80599414).
      Waldfriedhof, Südpark and Westpark are each very independent and completely different systems, which results in a beautiful, varied sequence. (And if the beer garden in the Westpark were open again, Sunday luck would be perfect.) Transfer routes along the street are inevitable, not particularly exciting, but not too long either. (The southwest of Munich structurally suffers from a certain lack of connecting green areas).
      We have newly integrated the area around Luise-Kiesselbach-Platz and Garmischer Straße: until a few years ago, the traffic of the Mittlerer Ring raged above ground, the intersection at L.-K.-Platz was huge and hardly manageable. Now there is park next to reduced streets. The promenade on the tunnel cover along Garmischer Straße is very promising, it could become a nice shady connection to Westpark over the years.Lifehack on the current occasion: In public parks it is better not to stick your noses in lilac blossoms at nose level, even if they smell so tempting. Every second person does this, always in the same places. These chains of infection are never traceable.

      What is the state of affairs in "my" park? Warmth and subsequent rain caused the vegetation to explode. The cherry blossom is over, now lilac, snowball, hawthorn, honeysuckle bloom and smell in the bushes (I'm less interested in other ornamental plantings). The crickets are already chirping in warm corners, the forest reverberates with a variety of bird sounds. Fertility everywhere - and Paris should still decide who is the most beautiful: as always, the appetizing Aphrodite (group of figures in the flower gardens of Landolin Ohmacht from 1804-07) remains.What I regret is the fact that more and more "nature lovers" believe that the path is only valid for the others. This may be due to the special circumstances, where everyone crowds into the parks instead of spreading around. May it not become a (bad) habit, nature in the park does not get it.

      My companion said that she wanted to "finally" cycle again. So I have to reorient myself. The start was correspondingly bumpy: the long service life had made a hose weary, it had to be replaced first (the "speed profile" shows it) - after all, there was a replacement in the house. Then it was a nice round on the western outskirts of Munich. The Würmtal route was expected to be heavily frequented, later the traffic volume normalized to a large extent.What is difficult when cycling: take photos spontaneously, identify birds and plants. Accordingly, the yield is poor today (only then I could not hold back at the former Neuaubing track warehouse). That's what you get around for. So it may well be that the bike will get a little more exercise in the future.

      Afternoon round to Wallberg after a business appointment at Tegernsee. An excursion mountain, not necessarily a hiking mountain, but everything is different right now. No mountain railway, no gastronomy, only a few hikers. Ascent from the valley station via the so-called summer path, quite unrelaxing on a wide path (T1), often in a monotonous spruce forest, occasionally with a beautiful view of Lake Tegernsee. But with a nice, steady incline, with which you can quickly gain altitude and at which you can adjust your rhythm well. Only up to the Wallbergkircherl it gets a bit steeper, that's enough for us this afternoon. Wonderful view from the Wetterstein over Karwendel, Guffert, Hohe Tauern to the Wilder Kaiser (to name only the background).But above all - this silence: no alpine cattle, no tourists, no planes. A few birds, far away, the soft rustling of the wind in the trees below - nothing else. Silence as far as the ears can reach. Unreal, incredible. This is how the mountains must have always sounded ...The descent is then more interesting (T2): from Setzbergalm / Freisinger Hütte, first an entertaining root and rock climb until you come to a forest road that you follow for a while, until the footpath branches off to the right to Wallbergmoos-Alm, which you will soon reach. Continue on the footpath, soon through the clearing mountain forest in the afternoon sun (the most beautiful part of the path) before you meet the ascent path again. - Today just a few unambitious cell phone pictures for documentation.Addendum: Shortly before we leave the spruce forest on the ascent and reach the open height, we hear bewitching flute sounds from the forest. A bird sings unheard sounds in the afternoon sun. We question the newly discovered BirdNet app, because it is not so well received, it is not entirely certain. The research at home, however, confirms the assumption of the app: a song thrush is perched somewhere high in the spruces and delights us with its soothing singing.

      A tour that I had been planning for a long time: the more intensive exploration of the western outskirts to the newly emerging Freiham district. Because there were business deals on the way, the opportunity today was favorable. Everything was there: idyllic park paths, old and new settlements, arterial roads and new roads, overgrown forests and new urban nature. The way there was almost only in the green and was a pleasure. The way back was much more heterogeneous, but if you fancy junk food, even Lake Constance can be an experience.The discovery (which I was looking for) was of course the wild area between Lochham and Freiham in the area of the Neuaubing Forest and the former track depot. The track warehouse is a first-class urban conservation area, an open, grassy lawn with sparse woody vegetation, rich in insects. The southern grove was once part of the former railway site, is quite overgrown and is likely to be further developed as a “wilderness”. There are remnants of buildings with a “lost-place” character. Exciting and extremely worth protecting. Narrow paths lead through that you should stick to.The scene change in Freiham is then almost total, where an entire district grows up pretty quickly. But everything belongs together and Munich city planning is trying out here to reconcile many heterogeneous things like urban nature and high density. Over the next few years, you will be able to see how well this works.
