Hiking in the Triglav National Park

Zasavska koča na Prehodavcih

The easternmost part of the Alps is in Slovenia and is called the Julian Alps. For a long time, we had wanted to hike there. It is more natural, untouched and wilder than in Germany, Austria, Switzerland or Italy. Let me take you with us on a wonderful 72 km hiking week in the Triglav National Park

Exploring the Palatinate Forest

Schlüsselfels

In the last few weeks I have discovered an extremely attractive outdoor, hiking and photography region: The Palatinate Forest! I have made my first trips there and am absolutely thrilled – especially since this low mountain range is only 1-2 hours away from my home. read more »

On snowshoes in Switzerland

On Snowshoes in Switzerland

2018 was a year full of experiences, changes, growth and broadening of my horizon. At the end of the year, I needed a holiday that would enable me to process all these impressions and let them pass in review. Snowshoeing in Switzerland was just the thing! Four unforgettable days in Val Müstair with a perfect mixture of physical activity and relaxation. read more »

Hiking to Hohenzollern Castle

Hohenzollern Castle

On Sunday, November 11, 2018, we made a wonderful hike in the Swabian Jura. This is a low mountain range in southern Germany. The special thing about this mountain range is that the northwest flank consists of an impressive steep slope. This topographical feature allows an overwhelming view of the landscape extending to the west (towards Stuttgart).  The Zeller Horn, at 912 m above sea level, offers the best views of Hohenzollern Castle on this steep slope. read more »

Hiking along Burgensteig

Waldnerturm

On 13th of October 2018 we participated in the Megamarsch-Frankfurt. It’s an event where you try to hike 100 km in 24 hours. About 1700 people took part and only 500 made it through the finish line. We got to kilometer 40 and it took us exactly eight hours. It was great fun, even though the organization of the event was incredibly bad. If you are interested in walking a Megamarsch, I recommend the Megamarsch-Munich, in which I participated in 2016. Much nicer than the actual Megamarsch, was my training hike over the Burgensteig, on 09th of October 2018. The Burgensteig is a hiking trail that leads from Heidelberg – over a total of 120 km – to Darmstadt. It also passes my hometown Weinheim. So I started early in the morning at home and made a total of 45 km to Zwingenberg and passed a lot of beautiful places: read more »
