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. ;-)

On Sunday we'll follow Maximiliansweg from Lenggries to Bad Wiessee. This is a medium hike with two peaks and 1100hm of elevation gain.

Lenggries - Geierstein (1491m) - Fockenstein (1564m) - Aueralm (1299m) - Bad Wiessee. Walking time = ~7h, distance = 17 km, elevation gain = 1100 hm.

We'll stop at Aueralm for lunch. Nevertheless bring plenty of snacks and water along. Depending on the weather we’ll either take a bus or a boat to Tegernsee once we arrive in Bad Wiessee. Ferry tickets are €5.20 per person.

Munich Hauptbahnhof, in front of platform 33, at 07.45am on Sunday 29. April 2018. The price of the train ticket will be split evenly between the group.

Return to Munich
~ 7pm-ish
