===========================================================

 

Any interest in a cross-country skiing trip this Sunday? 18.Dec.2005

 

Take the Bayerische Oberland Bahn (BOB) from platform 34 at the Hauptbahnhof at 07:42 hrs.

 

Arrive Bayerischzell at 9am. Ski up the trail for an hour or two. Lunch and Weißbier at the Greek place, then back and home to Munich in time for afternoon tea and cake.

 

Sharing a Schönes Wochenend ticket: €30,- split five ways = €5 each.

 

Skiing is free if you've got your own kit. Otherwise it can be rented in Bayerischzell for €10 for the day (skiis, poles, and boots).

Conditions in Bayerischzell currently looking good (although I've not been there myself yet this year):

Ooooh, tempting. Not sure what time the sister-in-law arrives. Otherwise, would be into it another weekend.

 

But I think you can do it cheaper than €30. It only costs €20 for 5 to take the BOB on the weekend, both Saturday and Sunday. €17 for a day.

This does sound tempting. I haven't gone cross-country skiing in years, but I'd like to try it again. A pre-7am wakeup is a bit early for a Sunday (for me), but I'm penciling it in as a definite maybe just the same. Would be interested to see if any others are into it...

Lunch and Weißbier at the Greek place

If you are referring to Zipfelwirt I have sad news for you...they are no longer open...Im not sure if they finally have a new owner but last news I heard (about 2 weeks ago) was that they closed down...Bäckeralm should still be open...they'll never go anywhere :)

It is early, agreed. But snow conditions are better for langlaufing the earlier you go. It's colder in the morning, you see. By afternoon the sun tends to melt the top layer and makes the going sticky and slow - if you're lucky enough to have sunshine, that is. Besides, you can sleep for 75 minutes on the train.

 

Note that southern-Munich residents can pick up the train at 07:49 hrs from Harras.

 

€17 for a day BOB ticket? Even better! That makes €3.40 per person if we have five peeps joining.

Great idea and I'd be up for it, but not on the last Sunday before Christmas. Too many last-minute panicky things to do.

OK. Meet at 7.35am sharp, on the platform. Depending on numbers we can decide there and then how many tickets are needed. Tix can be bought right there, by the train.

 

So far we have five definites - Davo, Stranger +2, plus myself.

One maybe: mere

Rail tickets cost something like €25 for a group of five. We'll split the cost accordingly on the morning.

 

Bring your own x-country skiis or hire them at Lenggries - they cost around €11 for the day.

 

Post here if you'll be joining us.

You have to change trains to get to Oberammergau, so you can't sleep the whole way. And last time I went it was a bus from Murnau, so if that's still the arrangement than it makes it even harder to sleep.

 

I went down there last year for a spot of X-C and guess what, I didn't check beforehand and it was the day of the KL Lauf. Doh. Had a great time standing around in the sun watching everyone else do the work.

There is a Train Change in Murnau, But the RB goes directly to Oberammergau Bahnhof.
