9 easy hikes perfect for a day trip from Munich to the Alps
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. […]
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.

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

Through Hobbit land and the Misty Mountains to the Höllentalangerhütte.
In October I went on a flurry of hikes in an attempt to compensate for the hiking I missed in the summer. The one hike a week rhythm made it difficult to keep up with on the blog though. I’ve only now managed to write-up the first hike in Garmisch. We walked up through a […]
