Labalm: Two toddlers in Spertental
At the beginning of September we were back in the Kitzbüheler Alps for another hiking weekend. We decided to go back to the Spertental for a hike to one of the local Alms. As we were hiking with our friends Tanja and Daniel and their one year old daughter Nelly, who was about to give […]
Mountain escapades around Lamsenjochhütte
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.
The Rapallo trail above lake Bohinj
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.
Along the Leitzach
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.
Gampenkogel: A mountain dash in the Kitzbüheler Alpen
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!
A short hike to Maisalm
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.
An autumn hike between Bad Tölz and Lenggries
Somewhere between Bad Tölz and Lenggries there is a little charming farm hiding at the foot of the Probstenwand – the Hintere Längentalalm. In September when Otto could sit up on his own, we made it the destination of our first hike with a child carrier.
Hiking with a baby and a pram at the Tegernsee
In August last year we were finally off on our second hiking trip with baby Otto. This time we decided for another classic Munich hiking destination – the Tegernsee. The route was short and easy for anyone without a pram and a bit of a hard work for those pushing one. However, it was definitely […]
Hiking with a baby at Spitzingsee
At the beginning of April, on my birthday, we decided to do something special and give hiking with a pram a go. We packed all the usual supplies, plus nappies, puree, several sets of spare clothes and various blankets, and off we were headed for the train (and bus) to Spitzingsee.
Two easy hikes in the Kitzbüheler Alps
Hiking has been set on the back burner lately and so the marmot post has suffered too. To redeem myself at least partially, I have finally put down some notes on a couple of easy hikes I did in the Kitzbüheler Alps at the beginning of May.
