Munich Mountains

One of the perks of living in Munich is that the mountain peaks look almost close enough to touch and it ist just 40-minute drive to the great outdoors.

Whether you like outdoor sports, are looking for a recreational area or just need to refuel your energy, you can still find some places that are not too crowded with tourists.

Sunrise tour Aueralm

Although this is a very popular tour, you can enjoy this peaceful location on a sunrise tour before it gets crowded. Make sure to start early so that you reach the mountain hut by 8 a.m. during winter season.

The hut opens at 8:30 a.m. and they serve great tea and coffee while enjoying the majestic views.


During off season and heavier snow showers, you won’t meet too many people at the Schliersee mountains. In fact, it can be very quiet and peaceful.

No matter what you are into: skiing, snowboarding, hiking, horse riding, fatbiking or simply a nice walk, it still is a great place to refuel your energy.


Isar on the Rocks: Refreshing Tips for a summer in Munich

Here is a little tip for everyone who is spending the summer in the city: enjoy a sundowner at the Isar river bank with β€œIsar on the Rocks”. A date with your hubby, bae, BFF or just with any friend or family member.

The idea is pretty neat. Simply order your picnic box and get it delivered directly to your picnic spot at the river bank between Reichenbachbruecke and Braunauer Eisenbahnbruecke in downtown Munich.

The drinks are served cold on the rocks, the snacks are a great choice as well. Picnic with style. I for sure will test several boxes as long as the weather permits it. Who wants to join me?
