Summit Aspirations

Best Vistas and Lovely Mountain Pastures

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 very  worth protecting.


Our hiking destination is a famous local summit. It will seem like a lot of work but it is so worth it: Views of Tegernsee, Schliersee and Munich to the north and of numerous mountain ranges to the south await. And it is all topped off by a well-earned lunch at a local chalet. The food here is excellent, the portions are humungous and the views lovely. Final highlight of the tour: a beautiful mountain lake and a short stroll along its shores.
