There are about gazillion opportunities for hiking in Munich’s close vicinity. Here’s one: head for the Herzogstand at the beautiful Walchensee, which locals refer to as a “Hausberg”, because it’s so close to home you can easily make it to and fro in half a day. You’ll need a good hour to get there by car, and another 1,5 hours to climb the mountain’s better half, after a which a rewarding ”Brotzeit” awaits you in the “Hütt’n”. You can take the “Seilbahn” on the way down, if the hike has drained your resources. When you get back down to the lake, try a cute little place called Cafe am See for grandmother-style cakes and a fantastic view of the Walchensee. Ask them for a taste of the local “Urfelder” Kräuterlikör, if you don’t mind getting a little tipsy.
