Mountain Pastures

Bavaria's Mountain Pastures in a Nutshell

This tour in a nutshell

This guided day trip from Munich takes us to the Mangfall mountains near Spitzingsee and through mountain pastures typical of the Alps. Our ancestors formed these cultural landscapes over the centuries and they knew how to thrive in unison with nature. The resulting pastures are rich in biodiversity and are themselves worth protecting.

 

Our hiking destination is a viewpoint with vistas of several Mangfall summits, followed by a well-earned lunch at a local chalet. The food here is excellent and the views lovely. But beware – the portions are enormous! Final highlight of the tour: a beautiful mountain lake and a short stroll along its shores.
