Bavaria is one of the luckiest “states” in Germany, as we get the most public holidays in all of the country. One of them happened on August 14th and because it was a Tuesday, I decided to take the Monday off and make a long weekend out of it.
Because my plans to actually go away fell through, I decided to at least go on a daytrip on Monday and enjoy all Bavaria’s countryside has to offer.
I already wrote about a daytrip I took once to Taubenstein, which is the same area as I went to this time. This time we walked around the Spitzing lake first (which already takes around 1.5 hours) and after we found out that the hut we wanted to go to was closed, we decided to take a gondola up to Jagahüttn, where we had delicious food. From there, you were either able to take little carts to the bottom of the mountain again or walk the whole way. We decided to walk (1.5 hours again) and were treated with the most beautiful views and colors on the way.
How to get here? You can take a train to Schliersee (which is the lower lake) and then a bus from there up to Spitzingsee. There are different gondolas do different mountains from there (the one to Taubenstein goes from there as well), but there’s also the possibility to walk all the way up.
