Are you planning a day excursion to the Alps while in Munich? Do you want to go hiking? Then get started! With a moderate degree of fitness, you may easily reach several fantastic hiking paths by train from Munich Airport Transfer.
Hiking Made Easy- Short Journey
By train, the mountains and hiking trails are only an hour to 90 minutes away from Munich. So, why limit your city break to just that? You’ll have twice as many stories to tell if you combine it with a trip to the mountains. It doesn’t even require the use of a vehicle! The routes listed here are served by trains and buses departing from Munich Central Station. It’s a quick and easy way to get out into the mountains!
You’ll need sturdy, flat footwear for the routes described here. Sunscreen, a hat or parasol, and drink are also required.
Hiking near Munich: Neureuther Hütte, 1,264 meters
The Neureuth is a popular location for guests of all ages and is arguably the most well-known mountain restaurant on Lake Tegernsee. A great view of the picturesque Lake Tegernsee may be had from the large sun deck. You can get a good night’s sleep before this hike because it is quite short. But keep in mind that hot food is only available till 2:30 pm Within 1.5 hours from the Tegernsee railway station, you will be at the summit. The route follows a large forest road with only a small hilly portion at the forest’s conclusion. Order an Apfelstrudel or Topfenstrudel with custard instead of Kaiserschmarrn (about € 10) to save money.
Hiking near Munich: Wendelstein, 1,838 metres
This path is so simple that even my grandmother could do it! You can even take the train to the summit. The Wendelstein is the highest peak in the nearby vicinity, standing 1,838 metres tall in the Bavarian Alps. You can enjoy a great view from the sun terrace, and if you want to do something more active, you can climb the last 100 metres from the top station to the peak for a 360-degree panoramic view of the landscape. The ascent to the summit through the well-maintained path takes around 20 minutes and is appropriate for less experienced hikers, however it is not suited for vertigo sufferers. The 100-year-old cog railway passes you by on its way back and forth, making your vacation picture-perfect! Instead of taking the cable car, you can take the cogwheel railway to the top.
Hiking near Munich: Herzogstand, 1,731 metres
The Herzogstand, together with the Jochberg, is Munich’s local mountain (add internal LINK to „Sunset on the Jochberg Mountain,“ which is not yet available). The Herzogstand is also accessible via cable car. But that would be a shame. Because the journey is the destination at the Herzogstand! The Walchensee may be seen below you, shrinking curve by curve. It’s as if it’s letting you know how well you’re progressing up the mountain. With the unspoiled countryside before you, you’d easily imagine you were in Canada as you wind past the slopes later.
The ascent should take 2 to 2.5 hours, while the descent should take 1.5 hours. You can take a short break at the Herzogstandhaus cable car mountain station before climbing the final few metres to the peak. You can see all the way to Munich from here!
Hiking near Munich: Priener Hütte, 1,410 metres
The Priener Hütte, unlike the other locations, is not accessible by cable car. The environment, on the other hand, is calm and easygoing. Those who make their way up here are glad they did (and probably a little tired). To get back on your feet, you’ll need a decent sandwich or Kaiserschmarrn. The Priener Hütte is located in Chiemgau, near the Austrian/Tyrol border. It’s cute and cosy, and the ride there is interesting. On the way up, you’ll take a modest forest trail that climbs 700 metres in elevation. It takes 2.5 hours to climb to the top. You can even take some of the more difficult trekking trails through the forest if you’re exceptionally sure-footed.
