Must know

There are a few things you need to know regarding your exciting trip to the Bavarian Alps. So make sure to check all the info we provide for the different tour levels.

Easy hikes

Our easy hikes are mostly flat and don’t include longer ascents. No specific fitness level is required, but you should be in good enough shape to manage shorter ascents along the way and hike for three hours straight (some of our hikes have a long lunch break but sometimes we do the hike in one stretch with our food experience before or after). 

 

If you have any concerns about your fitness level, please contact us before booking a tour. We are happy to discuss your personal situation!

 

You will need good walking shoes like sneakers or runners – please don’t show up in sandals, slippers or heels! Make sure to bring a water bottle, some snacks to keep you going between meals and some warm clothes (even if the weather is warm and sunny in Munich, this can change at any time in the mountains). We do provide basic raincoats in case it starts raining.

To skip the traffic and preserve our beautiful mountain landscapes, we conveniently travel by train from Munich central station (between 45 minutes and 1.5 hours travel time one way). All our trips are full-day trips, so we normally meet up between 8.30 am and 9 am and return between 5 pm and 6 pm. The exact timing is indicated during the booking process and on your ticket.

Participants must be 18 years old or accompanied by a legal guardian. Accompanied childen must be at least 10 years old. Please contact us beforehand if you want to bring a younger child.

Mid-level hikes

Our mid-level hikes include a more or less continuous ascent of up to 500 metres in height (which equals approx. 1.5 hours of uphill walking) and around four hours of hiking in total. Therefore, you should have a good fitness level and have no health concerns (especially regarding your cardio fitness). If you are not used to uphill walking, you will definitely break a sweat! All our mid-level hikes include a lunch break.

"No hikes"

Our "no hikes" don't require much physical activity but still offer all the fun. There is a bit of walking involved, but not more than half an hour one way. So while you don't need a specific fitness level, you should not have any walking impairments. We will enjoy a yummy lunch at a cosy mountain chalet.

Winter hikes

Our winter hikes are mostly easy hikes (hiking of around three hours, no continuous ascent), but also include some "no hikes" (only short walks) or mid-level hikes (hiking of around four hours, up to 500 m of continuous ascent). So please make sure to check the description of your selected hike for the required fitness level.

 

We always choose hikes that are safe to walk in winter. So there is no risk of avalanches or the like, but the ground may be covered in snow and/or ice. You should therefore wear boots with a good profile, be rather sure-footed and aware that the risk of slipping can never be 100% avoided. We offer spikes free of charge that can be worn over your boots and that make for safe walking.

 

Make sure to bring a water bottle, some snacks to keep you going between meals and some serious clothes to keep you warm. You can wear several layers and shed or add layers throughout the day. We do provide basic raincoats in case it starts snowing or – alas – raining.
