One tour is normally planned each weekend by a dedicated team during a season which starts mid-March and ends with the first snows of December. This is social cycling, not a sport.…
An old favourite of ours this week.
We're at the Fürstenegger. Würmtalstraße. 5 mins from the U-Bahn U6 Holzapfelkreuth

With the Frühlingsfest starting on Friday, how about shooting at dusk to get all those colours?

I saw some abandoned buildings from the S-Bahn…
I thought I'd bump this again, as the season is starting, and I'd love to hear some more. For me, my main goal for this season is Stelvio Pass.

Who is interested in an easy hiking trip to Rotwandhaus?
Spitzingsee (1.084m) - Rotwandhaus (1.737m) - Osterhofen (800m).
Walking time = ~6h, distance = 17 km, elevation gain = 950 hm.
We'll stop at Rotwandhaus for lunch.
Nevertheless bring plenty of snacks and water along.
Send your landlord this link. It clearly says you have a right to demand more keys and that you can sue him if he doesn´t comply and reduce the rent until you get them.

Snow was great in places. In others there were occasional bits of grass and stones poking through, but…

Lily of the Valley (German: Maiglöckchen):…
