This hike from Hintersteiner See to Walleralm and Kreuzbichl has it all: a lake, a summit and an Alpine hut and it takes just two hours. A perfect route for a hike with a toddler on your back. Advertisements

At the end of July I discovered a great new hiking destination just a stone’s throw from Munich – the Großer Ahornboden in Karwendel. I had a go at a couple of routes around Lamsenjochhütte and enjoyed spectacular views of the rocky peaks and deep valleys surrounding it.

This year’s summer holiday has taken us to the Julian Alps in Slovenia. High above lake Bohinj, we’ve come across a relatively easy hike with great views of the lake and surrounding summits including the Triglav. All in all under four hours of great views doable with a toddler in a baby carrier.

If you are visiting Munich and really want to get a feel for the city, you have to leave it for a trip to the Alps. Practically everyone in Munich owns a pair of hiking boots and going hiking in the nearby Alps is part and parcel of what it means to live in Munich. […]

As our trip to the Längentalalm with Otto on our back proved to be a success, we were keen to use what remained of the hiking season. Just two weeks later, we were off to Fischbachau for a hike along the Leitzach.

It’s been a very long time since I’ve done a proper hike. In fact last Saturday was the first time I did a serious hike since my snowshoe trip in February 2016! Constantin and I hiked up the Gampenkogel (1,957m) in the Kitzbüheler Alpen. It was great!

The weather in Munich has been stunning for the last few weeks, so it was about time last Sunday that we took the baby carrier out of storage and into the mountains.
