I’ve done a few posts on here about the Partnachklamm, one of my favorite places to go hiking in Bavaria in both winter and summer. Recently, the husband and I decided to explore a different gorge in the same area called Hoellentalklamm (or Hell Valley Gorge if translated into English) and it did not disappoint!
I’ve said before that Walchensee is one of my very favorite lakes in Bavaria. Last fall the husband and I finally made it back to this beautiful alpine lake to go for a hike and it did not disappoint! While our original plan of hiking from Herzogstand to Heimgarten didn’t work as planned, we ended up making the 2 1/2 hour (ok, probably took us 3 1/2 hours) to Herzogstand and it was well worth every minute.
When out exploring, my husband and I love to visit farms. Anywhere there are fresh fruits and veggies and/or farm animals, we pretty much call that a successful day. For some reason we are fond of Ostriches. They are just the funniest animals and we could watch them all day. Not to mention they are quite tasty! (Sorry vegetarians) So when a friend of mine recently pointed me to an Ostrich farm (Straussenfarm Donaumoos) we knew we had to go check it out…and it did not disappoint!
One of my favorite things about living in Bavaria is visiting the Alps and spending a day outdoors around one of the many lakes in the area. Some of my favorites such as the Walchensee, Tegernsee, and Staffelsee I have visited over and over…but recently a friend took me hiking at the Schliersee and it was equally as beautiful!
Bavaria is so picturesque, a person could literally go anywhere south of Munich and find magnificent places to visit. I know we frequently hop in the car and just drive south to see what we find and are never disappointed! This particular day though, some friends of mine took me for a bike ride and hike around the Staffelsee (Lake Staffel) and the Murnauer Moos (literally translated: Murnau swamp) and it was instantly one of my favorite places I’ve visited to date.
