Thank you for joining today's hike up Herzogstand.

It was a bit colder than expected and there is still plenty of snow over 1500m.

But that didn't stop us. ;-)

Hi guys, what's happened to this group? I'd like to do a few day hikes, but not seen anything this summer here.

 

This group's hikes are now being organised on Meetup. Things like handling a waiting list, draft versions of hikes, or sharing photos are more convenient on a platform designed for planning events. Our team of organisers posts a day hike every week - weather permitting, of course.

 

Looking forward to seeing you on one of our hikes:
