We parked at Taubensteinbahn and climbed at first steep up from there. It was hot&humid so not exactly ideal conditions but spirits were high so off we went, 2h45min up to Rotwand it should be.
Its a versatile route, goes through forest and meadows, partly along a fresh water stream. Reaching a Bergbahnstation, the view opens on both sides – and it was pleasantly windy up there. From there, it should be 1h to Rotwand and it’s a pleasant route, partially very wide and going up and down. We reach Rotwand after 2.5h, couple of photos and we go down for a beer to Rotwandhaus – and foood! With full tummies we take the road back to Spitzingsee, that one goes mostly through the forest, back to the parking.
We got caught by a small thunderstorm on the way, played on a children’s playground by the lake before finally getting back in the car and driving back to Munich.
