From Munich to Venice on the Dream Path

Posted on 07/13/2017

The first entries on this blog are belated additions -a recollection of my MuVe adventure in 2017. In case you haven't encountered the word "MuVe" yet, it is a shortening of Munich-Venice. The whole hike - known as "Dream Path" - runs up and down over a distance of more than 500km and 25,000 height meters, from the Marienplatz in central Munich to the Piazza de San Marco in Venice. The route was...

Day 6 - Hinterriss to Karwendelhaus

Posted on 08/09/2017

We start after a hearty breakfast. That's the one good thing about staying in restaurants. I fill my water bottles from the tap behind the counter and start walking. There's bad weather ahead once more, but I hope to make it to my destination before it can get ugly. I fear that the first real highlight, crossing the Birkkarspitze, with more than 2700 meters the highest mountain in the Karwendel...

Day 5 - Jachenau to Hinterriss

Posted on 08/08/2017

It's another short day today. At breakfast I learn that I'm not the only one who divided their day trip into two. With me at the breakfast table is Monika, and she's also heading to Venice. We talk a bit about this and that regarding our trips after the landlady serves us our not so opulent meal. Well, the jam is good and there's coffee with caffeine, that's still nine out of ten. I head out a...

Day 4 - Tutzinger Hut to Jachenau

Posted on 08/07/2017

A last glimpse back down towards the Tutzinger hut.The weather is as perfect as forecast, and the cool breeze from the woods keeps the heat streaming towards the mounts from the lower regions in check. After a hearty breakfast and lots of coffee - I love huts where coffee isn't rationed like gold nuggets - I start alone, but I pass others and others pass me every so often. My blisters keep nagging...

Day 3 - Lenggries to Tutzinger Hut

Posted on 08/06/2017

It not only rained tonight, it poured buckets, but around 7 the rain turns into a trickle. I hurry with breakfast, pack my stuff and head off towards the Brauneck summit cable car. Just before the last few meters the clouds drop down again and I barely make it into my rain clothes in time. The church planned a mountain mass today, but I'm almost alone in the cable station, only the priest and two...

Day 2 - Wolfratshausen to Lenggries

Posted on 08/05/2017

I start at 7 and get my breakfast from the gas station across from the hotel. After the first few hundred steps, the soreness in my legs is almost gone. I'm happy to get back from the tarmac onto gravel and forest paths - and suddenly I have the feeling that something is missing. My poles! Well, that means walking a kilometer back to the hotel, slipping in through an unlocked patio door and...
