Hiking from Geitau over Wendelstein to Bayrischzell

Hello everybody,

Let's go hiking this Saturday! The trail starts at Geitau (which is a few stops after Schliersee, where we went a few weeks ago), passes over Wendelstein, and ends in Bayrischzell. The difficulty of the trail should be moderate. It is 12km long with an ascent and descent of approximately 1.2km each.

We can take the BOB train from the Hauptbahnhof to Geitau, then from Bayrischzell back to the Hauptbahnhof. The train departs from platform 34 at 9:05am, so please arrive at least twenty minutes beforehand so that we can organize tickets. Five people are able to share a ticket, which costs 27 EUR, so the cost is 5,40 EUR per person.

For more information, please see the following links:

There are a number of nice looking restaurants in Bayrischzell that we can visit after our hike.

For those that are interested, there are two possibilities for shortening the hike. The first possibility is to not hike to the top of Wendelstein. This will save you approximately 1km in distance and 100m in both ascent and descent. The second possibility is to take the cable car that runs up and down the mountain (http://www.wendelsteinbahn.de/bergbahnen/international/englisch.php). Although the cable car is not free, this would cut the trip in half roughly.

    I can join you directly in Geitau - when do you start in Munich, and WHEN and WHERE do you arrive exactly in Geitau? Looking forward to joining you tomorrow for the hike :-)

    March 21, 2014

    • Isabel

      OK, can anybody give me his/ er mobile pjone number, so that I am sure to find you there? :-) See you tomorrow at 10:15

    • Isabel

      ...mobile phone, of course! ...;-)

  • Peter K.

    Hey everyone,
    So lets vote for taking the train at 9:05. If you agree, just like the comment.
    we will arrive in geitau at. 10:15. Its just better to have an extra hour, so we can hopefully avoid the rain, can stay longer on the top of the mountain to enjoy the view or have more time in the restaurant after the hike.
    From Bayrischzell to Munich we need 1:20.

    Hi there- I'm not a big hiker, and don't have great footwear here in Munich yet. Think the shortcuts would make this work for a novice in sneakers? :)

    March 21, 2014

    • Susan Maurer W.

      I also would be interested in going, but also am not a big hiker and only have sneakers to wear :( Anyone else interested in cable car up, then walking down?

      March 21, 2014

    • Sarah

      Thanks Joseph-- that works for me!
