Hiking to Wallberg in Tegernsee

Hiking to Wallberg

Summer has finally come to Europe and opened the active season with some solid weather. To celebrate it I went for a short hike to a small town of Tegernsee, less than an hour away from Munich.

The hike itself was not that long. I went to the top of the Wallberg, a 1722m high mountain right next to the lake Tegernsee (named conveniently as the town itself, or maybe other way around).

Being so close to the lake I expected nice views and they didn’t disappoint. Just an hour into the hike I’ve exited the forest and started to see all Alps all around.

Quickly enough I got to the place where cable car stops, bringing those who don’t want to break a sweat and get a lunch with a view. Not an alternative to me, though.

I carried on to the top of the mountain which was just a short 30 minute hike from there. In the end, I think I’ve spent more time at the top enjoying amazing view than actually hiking up and down the mountain. And it was very much worth it.

 

If you carry on to the summit, there will be a nice place to sit and enjoy the view
