Was man in den Beinen hat, das hat man auch im Kopf. Erkundungen zu Fuß, mal da, mal dort. Meist in München und gelegentlich auf Weitwanderungen, die ich inzwischen lieber Fußreisen nenne.
Was es hier nicht gibt: Insta-Selfies vor dramatischer Kulisse oder sonstigen Kitsch.
Dafür vielleicht ein Gefühl für wertvolle Orte.
"The benefits of a journey are always available simply by walking." (Arianna Huffington)
"Ein Gang durch die Stadt kann reiner Selbstzweck sein - oder aber ein Anfang." (Jan Gehl)
"A place achieves concrete reality when our experience of it is total, that is, through all the senses as well as with the active and reflective mind." (Yi-Fu Tuan)
"Der Wanderer meidet die gerade Straße, er sucht die gewundenen Pfade. [...] Wandern ist eine Tätigkeit der Beine und ein Zustand der Seele." (Josef Hofmiller)

Zum Langzeitprojekt "Weitwanderung durch die Alpen" gibt es eine kleine Website:
The "15-minute city" is currently the popular model in urban planning: everything you need and want for a good life can be reached on foot in 15 minutes or maybe twenty. Great challenge and opportunity to think about what is desirable ...
Election day was similarly sunny four years ago and we walked from the polling station to the Olympiapark (komoot.de/tour/23300829). Today we should go to the Schlachthofviertel (😅), but then we got stuck in the Westend. On the way there, we explored Munich's potential for 15-minute cities a little and climbed through several time shifts.
The pioneer park along the railway axis into the city center is developing visibly, and property speculation there continues to "blossom". Clever minds are probably rightly pointing out that the 15-minute city is likely to further fuel speculation.
We pass the railway at the Donnersberger Brücke because we want to go along the Trappentreustraße to the Westend. There, in a rough corner between Landsberger Straße and Mittlerer Ring, the NSU carried out one of its murder attacks in 2005, and there has been a small memorial plaque since 2013 (thanks @Lotte for this highlight: this is what helpful highlights look like). Just a few steps further is the Guldein School, planned in 1900 by the great Munich city planner Theodor Fischer. On November 7, 1917, the rebellious workers moved here from Bavaria and were able to win over the company of the Munich Landsturm Battalion, which was quartered there, for the cause of the revolution that began with it. We continue in the direction of Bavaria, but then we get stuck in a Vietnamese restaurant on the street unplanned. It's nice to sit there, almost like in Paris. The menu promises a little more than the food delivers, but that also fits on election day like this.
From the Bavaria we go across the Theresienwiese to the subway, probably the last time that you can do that at this time of the year. Currently an open area of possibilities, which is also actively used. But soon the course will be set again ...

In Munich today everything revolved around the IAA - with an emphasis on "around": large parts of the inner city streets were temporarily closed to motor vehicle traffic due to bicycle rides and demos. Annoyed motorists acknowledged this with honking horns, which the police overheard and instead sprayed pepper spray somewhere as a precaution. Scout Jens recently said (komoot.de/tour/480861139) that I could go for the inner city locations of the IAA, the so-called "Open Spaces". The manufacturers of fossil mobiles and electric space capsules are currently setting up their puppet theaters in the most prestigious squares in the city center and people are streaming in en masse. In passing, I caught a few fleeting impressions, that's enough.Because someone instigated us to pay a visit to the Nazi Documentation Center today in the eye of the storm. As expected, it was quite quiet there and we took our time until exhaustion. Then, outside again, there were folders on Brienner Strasse between the barricades and black-clad riot police, behind the wheel the Ferris wheel was turning on Königsplatz and piano music could be heard from the former Führerbau through the open window, someone was practicing at the university. Surreal?The art installation "Oskar. A Camouflage" spread out under our feet, which has been on view since yesterday and until October 10th. The artist Olaf Nicolai took a camouflage pattern design by the Bauhaus artist Oskar Schlemmer from 1941 as a template and used it to line the entire forecourt of the NS Documentation Center (Max-Mannheimer-Platz). More background on this here: ns-dokuzentrum-muenchen.de/wechselausstellung/oskar-eine-camouflageEverything is confusing. Past Wittelsbacher-Platz, occupied by Audi and Porsche, we go to the subway at Odeonsplatz. This is where Daimler resides and has built the Feldherrnhalle with a strange green roof landscape, also a camouflage. And I thought the space in front of the Feldherrnhalle should never again be used for propaganda purposes ...

Fourth stage on the cross path, out of the Black Forest. "It's mätschigg" is my companion's motto for today. The day should be rainy, of all places in the most beautiful part of the Wutach Gorge. It then turns out a little differently and yet not, all in all it will be a slippery affair (hiked 08/07/2021).
