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.

Zum Langzeitprojekt "Weitwanderung durch die Alpen" gibt es eine kleine Website:
6%: could have a spicy beer that refreshes the throat after a strenuous tour. Until then, however, there are still 6% of the way ahead of us - just.
Current status July 27th: still 0.9%!The response from the community to our hiking event is, to be honest, stunning - we did not expect so much interest and encouragement. Many a word of thanks has already been written. I would like to point out once again that it is worth looking through the tours in the Collection, because there are plenty of suggestions for creative, curious, open-minded hiking and being on the move. Some really made the proverbial a lot of fun out of it.Steff picked the first blueberries in the fog on Rennweg (komoot.de/tour/422299731) and Rolf was able to complete the last stage in the Allgäu Alps because of. Mastering bad weather only at the second attempt, but then terrific (komoot.de/tour/429067622). These are the first and last of 75 stages that are now available in one piece or will be completed in the next few days. In between there are a lot of kilometers and unforgettable hiking moments that are connected to each other, mostly virtual but readable on the map, sometimes with personal connections.There is now almost a week for the lookup and we still have 1 open stage. That is 30 km of the planned 3,420 km, i.e. 0.9% of the distance - it can't be that wild! So here is the offer of our "Resterampe" or actually very special tours for committed walkers at a glance, because some of them really have it all:Schleswig-Holstein:

Dear fellow hikers,You are great! The last weekend showed how beautiful our country can be and how great the interest is in such an XXL hike through the whole country. Thank you all for your sometimes multiple hikes for this relay hike. More than 2,700 km have already come together.Each of you has made your very own (!) Contribution. One has covered a lot of kilometers, the other swam through a lake or the stage number was simply integrated into the recording.
Thank you thank you thank you!!!!At this point I would like to thank you again

Half a year ago, Frank and I were of the opinion that we couldn't manage such an action and that komoot had to actively support / take action ourselves. Now we have together proven the opposite.Unfortunately, even before the storm hit, it was already foreseeable that we would not be able to hike all 159 stages in 3 days. This is not least due to the fact that the advertising for this event only ran through us as organizers (and of course through you!). But well, what we did on our own is great.---komoot.de/collection/1243055/-mitwandern-2021-an-3-tagen-gemeinsam-durch-deutschland---komoot.de/invite-tour/426933856?code=dsk5qo-PxJx0znLEOAlHiHj5najX_eTWPHzCQ7jWg6XgjZQSoQ

First: to everyone who has not yet reached it: a big thank you for your passionate commitment and hiking with you last weekend. The weather conditions weren't always great, Rolf even had to break off the last stage (it was better that way!). And the other accompanying circumstances (flood disaster) were not really stimulating for carefree hiking. Nevertheless, we managed the action and it resulted in a huge bouquet of wonderful tours across the country. Nice story!As with every festival, there are leftovers, which are then eaten together if possible. So this time too. - It's been a while since I myself stood on the Albtrauf of Spaichingen and Tuttlingen, followed the seepage of the Danube between Immendingen and the Aachtopf or spent relaxing (bathing) hours on the shores of Lake Constance - you can see from the pictures. So I urgently need an update with current pictures and impressions of these beautiful areas, and I invite you to collect them from our Germany season on the following stages:
E143 Schömberg - Spaichingen over the Lemberg, the highest mountain in the Swabian Alb
E144 Spaichingen - Tuttlingen via St. Dreifaltigkeitsberg on the young Danube
E146 Engen - Ludwigshafen, past the Aachtopf, Germany's largest karst spring
E149 + E150 Meersburg - Friedrichshafen - Kressbronn, cultural landscape on the shores of Lake Constance, guaranteed with swimming (or in the hinterland if you prefer)You can find these five tours in detail in this collection: komoot.de/collection/1187978/-mitwandern-2021-e138-e159-herrenberg-haldenwanger-eck
They are still waiting for you so that we can completely close the gaps between the Black Forest and Allgäu. It would be nice and really cool if we could make it by the end of July!If you are interested, please enter yourselves in the doodle list:
doodle.com/poll/tebpwvefez3ye45dThere are also a number of tours further north, details can be found as usual in the group account of "MitWandern 2021", komoot.de/user/staffel or specifically in this tour: https: // www .komoot.de / tour / 425810562So, on to the reference!

Allgäu kaleidoscope with light and shadow - and rain, persistent, that was our second contribution to the Germany season. The Kreuzberg Höhenweg runs only a few steps from our night quarters to the lookout point of the same name, which is also called the Fünfländerblick. Today you can only see the two federal states of Ba.Wü. and Bavaria, the Bregenz Forest in Vorarlberg on the horizon, so that fits in with a Germany season. The way down to Weiler is quite varied with a typically hilly Allgäu landscape. In Bremenried the path leads directly past the dairy. The in-house cheese shop is open seven days a week, making it ideal for hikers.After a few steps on the main road, the footpath branches off to the Hausbach, the footpath along the stream leads into the center of the village. There the Hausbach has a defining effect on the townscape and its sound. In his canalized bed he rushes loudly through the middle of the place, also seven days a week, day and night. Further down it is called Rothach and later flows into the Bregenzerach, the main river of the Bregenzerwald. So somehow the area here is actually Upper Bregenzerwald? In any case, there are historical connections. - The church square invites you to linger before we continue our way up the stream.The Hausbachklamm, the absolute highlight of the day, begins right above the town center. Far from being as huge or as frightening as the more famous gorges (Breitach-, Starzlach- etc.), but an impressive natural landscape that can be hiked on the well-developed path in a family-friendly way. We climb up almost effortlessly, the terrain is so varied. Definitely worth seeing. Half an hour before the source moor of the Hausbach we get off and continue to Oberreute. It has already started to rain in the upper part of the gorge. At the free heights, the drizzle comes almost horizontally, uncomfortable. In Oberreute there is a covered bench at the town hall, another resting place that has been waiting for us.The rest of the way to Oberstaufen is a pretty mediocre affair. The highlights would actually be the views from the Martinshöhe or at Paradies - not today. We will therefore delete the Martinshöhe right away. From Irsengrund, the route then runs almost exclusively on paved back roads. After all, the clouds are lifting and the rain is ebbing towards paradise, as if Dante were our secret companion. But we miss the junction to paradise (once again) and leave it entirely to the road to Oberstaufen. Somehow the terrain here is only laid out for SUVs and eBikes. Too bad. The "Auszeit" café at the spa gardens is ideal to round off the weekend tour. The cake ran out today in the spa gardens. The delay management of the train helps us to get the earlier train back to Munich, which we thought we had missed.So that was it, our big line through the country this weekend. Thanks to all fellow campaigners and fellow hikers. A lot of great tours have come together and I'll be busy for a few more days to sift through everything and appreciate it appropriately!

While walking I noticed: this tour is probably unique in Germany: we start on the banks of the largest lake, walk through (small) vineyards and (larger) orchards gradually up to the heights of the meadows and pastures, after a few hours we reach pre-alpine terrain . Normal for the rest of the Alps, but only possible at this point in this country - and an experience if the weather could be even better and a clear view is desirable.First surprise on arrival, the train from Munich is almost fully occupied, all passengers with hiking backpacks. Have I overlooked something, does everyone want to hike with you? View from the train window: pure dreariness, rain is coming. After 2.5 hours we are in Lindau, which welcomes us with a heavy shower, but little of the Mediterranean flair is felt at the harbor. Then we'll go, we'll soon be out of town. Towards the outskirts you can still look after yourself, an organic fruit gardener is on the way, as is a good baker and cheese shop - perfect. And the rain has stopped, it is brightening.Through the orchards we get into the forest and after some up and down to the Leiblach, which we now follow for a long time, into the hinterland. The small river in the lower reaches is a natural border with Vorarlberg, on the bank it can be seen that it was recently 1m higher. The Leiblachweg exceeds our expectations: partly an easy farm path, partly a soft forest path, repeatedly framed views of the water.In Sigmarszell, halfway through, the old Gasthaus Traube greets you with a self-service drinks fridge. Next to it a house bank: an offer that we cannot refuse for our lunch break. This is followed by a short crossing of a small gorge, then a short passage along a busy road (on a separate path) that is quickly forgotten. The Leiblachweg remains a pleasure until you get off at Niederstaufen.Between Niederstaufen and Adelberg there is another piece of side road, then it goes through the forest, sometimes a little steep, over the Kinberg. At the Kinberghof on the way, you can immediately smell that things are managed differently here, a smell of hay fills the farm as it did a long time ago.Descent on the road and meadow path to the Scheidegger waterfalls. A famous geotope, but the tourist hype doesn't match our hike. Maybe once, when all we can do is drive around. In addition, it starts to rain and we quickly climb up to Scheidegg, a climatic health resort from a somehow bygone era when the air in the Ruhr area was mostly bad. But we still found a place to stay here, which is why we chose Scheidegg and not Lindenberg as our stage destination. Tomorrow we will continue from here.After dinner we stroll through the town and are shocked by the magnificent buildings on the outskirts, mostly weekend houses. We still have an urban sprawl problem.

Dear fellow hikers,Due to the strong storms and the subsequent failures at Deutsche Bahn or the closures of the hiking trails, it is ok if you cannot go on your tour this coming weekend. However, your tour should have been made up for by the end of July. This is not supposed to be an eternal project. 😉As organizers, we of course also expected better hiking weather all over Germany. But we can't change the weather either.
In any case, we are really looking forward to your great tours!Your organizers

# MitWandern2021: the alternative to the same stadium or park circuit. Or a blind date with a landscape in Germany that you don't know yet and have always wanted to get to know? Good opportunity next weekend (July 16-18)! There are still beautiful stages that can even be combined into a two to three-day weekend tour. Comfortable (e.g. on Lake Constance) or sporty challenging (e.g. on the Swabian Alb) - shouldn't there be a match? So get up and komooteln. komoot.de/user/staffelThere is still something else to report: "Munich Cool City" (coolcity.de) is a climate protection campaign of the state capital, with its own Komoot account and a new collection with city walks: komoot.de collection / 1201467 / munich-goes-ahead-on-the-most-beautiful-tours-through-the-capital
The tours are not overly original, but a nice invitation to explore more famous places in the city on foot. This is commendable, also because a whole series of well-founded highlights of a certain MonacoTrail have been incorporated, without his intervention but with his tacit approval 😉
And Komoot takes the chance to show that it can be more than just an app for superficial outdoor fun.Incidentally, this (business) round led through a small, newer green area on the western outskirts of Freiham, the so-called "pine grove": 1100 trees planted in a grid, a few paths, play areas, seating and a lot of very species-rich meadows. There it hums, hums and chirps all the time that one (almost) forgets the neighboring huge trading markets.

The northern edge of the Swabian Alb and the foothills of the Alb - my heart pounds again and again when I am allowed to be out there. And amazing: there are still a number of stages in this dream area to be had in our upcoming MitWandern 2021 season! To whet your appetite, I introduce you to this little round. It is off the MitWandern route, but has similar features in the course of the route and the landscape as you would otherwise expect on the Albrand between Hechingen and Tuttlingen, which we want to hike together - all information here: https: //www.komoot. de / user / staffelSchlat is a fruit growing village where you can indulge in the products of this Swabian Tuscany. More on that later. Because first we stretch our legs, climb through the cherry groves and the hillside forest for just under an hour to the Wasserberghaus. There you can have a nice lunch break and stride strengthened over the heights, calmly stretching further than we did. Because the area is known for its species-rich grasslands full of orchids and other rarities. We have not met processional spinners in person either and involuntarily understand the naming when their procession crosses our path. The descent from Wasserberg in the direction of Fränkel on the HW1 / Albsteig can be treacherously greasy after rain, so some caution is advised here. On unmarked paths we circle the north side of the Fränkel along the edge of the forest and enjoy the wonderful view of the three Kaiser mountains beyond the Filstal.Back in Schlat we dedicate ourselves to the second part of today's detour. The cherries are ripe (we ate from the tree on the way there) and the rest of the fruit in the area, especially apples and pears, can be bought fresh, fermented and distilled in the fruit growers' farm shops and in juice cellars. The nucleus of it all and almost a pilgrimage destination for slow food fans is Jörg Geiger's manufactory in the center of the village, who takes the refinement of Swabian meadow fruit to the extreme. For his legendary "sparkling wine from the champagne frying pear", an old pear variety, he even quarreled with the champagne magnates in court - and won! Definitely visit and leave a little money behind, so that local and regional near-natural orchard cultivation has a future.This is the Alb. Who knows them, appreciates them. As already mentioned, there is an opportunity for intensive sniffing on our hiking weekend from July 16 to 18. Who else is there?

In contrast to "experience", the term "Ergehung" does not (yet) exist in the German vocabulary "wrote the walking researcher Bertram Weisshaar a while ago." Experiencing "town and country apparently corresponds more to our mentality, the walker is always a little below Suspected stray, homeless journeyman. This fits the concept of "indulging yourself", which usually means extravagant speech, usually peppered with trivialities, so intellectual and linguistic stray.This is roughly how I wanted to indulge myself in the day today, indulge myself in the day, not completely aimlessly but still very extravagant, on a tour into the city center through partly known, partly unimportant, partly newly discovered area. Towards the late afternoon, the flow of walking began to falter because I had to renew my equipment a bit and some of the gastronomic options were tempting. Then other family members joined them and we spent the evening in Giesing. And then I let myself be driven home ...I tried to incorporate as little as possible of the well-known trivialities, called sights, into Weg und Bilder and instead went to a few other places. Of these, the following are particularly mentioned today:
• The "mosaic gardens" in the Westfriedhof, an urn grave with mosaic walls created by Christoph Brech since 2015: a nice new approach to cemetery design.
• The hundred-year-old "Borstei" settlement, which is always worth a visit, even for a break in the café or in the shady garden.
• The new settlement on Ackermannbogen, where ideas are spun from the Borstei, with the new green areas "Stadtacker" and "Stadtwald". The Ackermannbogen is strongly suspected of being hipsters, but the city's consistently persecuted mix of residents still succeeds here, so that (hopefully) no hipster ghetto emerges.Currently no post without reference to # MitWandern2021, komoot.de/user/staffel, where beautiful stages are still waiting that could tempt you to stroll through the day and the area.

The weather app said it would stay dry for the next 90 minutes. So leave your desk and take a short walk to your favorite ice cream parlor. By the time we were there after almost half an hour, the first drops were falling and the deep rumbling started again. Yesterday we almost drowned in the foothills of the Alps (not just football) and while I write here, it is pouring again ... After all: the water supplies in the gravel reservoir below us are filling up.Let's hope that the weather stabilizes until the big hiking weekend from July 16 to 18: "MitWandern 2021" is hip and people: there are still many really nice stages on the wonderful eaves of the Swabian Alb down to Lake Constance! In the north of the country it is already tight with starting places, but here in the south curve you still have a really good selection. In any case, my co-organizers and I would be very happy if we could fill up the slots before the start.So don't hesitate and book, either via the entire collection in the group account (if you are interested in a stage north of the Main): komoot.de/collection/1181370/-mitwandern-2021-an-3-tagen- together-through-germany
