Hiking together

Guided tours in the Bavarian Alpine foothills with Munich Wanderland

"Hike like a local!" - following this motto, Munich Wanderland offers guided tours in the Bavarian Alps. The aim of the hiking guides: to introduce MICE guests to local nature and culture off the beaten track.

The tour provider Munich Wanderland takes its guests on hand-picked hikes in the Alpine world just outside the Bavarian capital. On day, half-day and evening excursions, participants enjoy magnificent views of lakes and mountains. And of course, a hearty stop at a mountain hut or a rustic country inn with Bavarian delicacies is not to be missed. Conversation formats for on the road, such as thinking and creative tasks, which are then discussed in small, randomly assembled groups, team building components and highlights such as cheese-making courses round off the offer for MICE groups.

 

 

Offers for hiking beginners and tailor-made tours

The range of tours is varied but pleasantly easy. "It is important to us to offer tours that are basically doable for everyone," says Stefanie Praml, owner of Munich Wanderland. "Our guests usually come from far away, don't have mountain boots in their luggage and have perhaps never been in the mountains before. That's why we look for well-paved paths that are not exposed and can be tackled with good footwear, i.e. even without hiking boots."

MICE guests can experience a lot, from easy, rather flat tours, such as into the impressive Partnachklamm gorge, to medium-difficulty hikes with 500 to 600 metres of altitude gain, such as on a tour of the picturesque Tegernsee. Experienced hikers can also get their fun on tailor-made tours on request. And if it would be better just to go for a walk, Munich Wanderland offers that too: not much physical activity is required on the way to a hut at Spitzingsee, but the experience and the magnificent nature are still fun.

Of alpine pastures, lake monsters and Bavarian negotiating skills

Along the way, the Munich Wanderland guides teach their guests about Bavarian culture and the lifestyle that makes Munich and the Alps so unique. For example, you can find out what life was like on an alpine pasture in the past and today and what exactly happens there.

It's about monsters swimming in Bavarian lakes and the question of how they could become dangerous to Munich. Or about the skill that die-hard Bavarians show in negotiating with death. If you want to include some sightseeing, you can plan a side trip to King Ludwig's Linderhof Castle, to the magnificent Wieskirche church or to Oberammergau - the site of the famous Passion Plays.

#simplygreen on hikes through nature

In addition to the outdoor experience and culture, Munich Wanderland also focuses strongly on environmental protection. Stefanie Praml: "In the Alps, the temperature has already risen by almost two degrees in the last 150 years due to the special topography. We want to protect what we love. That's why we pay a lot of attention to sustainability on our tours.

Many of our tours start with a short train journey to the starting point. We also try to keep the groups small. And all our guides have some knowledge about the cultural region of the Alps in their luggage. After all, many people in the Alpine regions have managed to farm in harmony with nature for centuries and have even increased biodiversity in some cases. And of course we are meticulous about leaving nothing behind in nature."

All-round carefree package for MICE groups

In the countryside, in the fresh air and on the move, it's easy to network, teams come together and it's simply easier to think. That's why Munich Wanderland's tours are very popular with MICE clients. The difficulty, length and destination of the hike or walk are determined in close consultation with the client.

Entertaining team-building components for indoors and outdoors and an Alpine quiz can be added, and presentation and meeting options can be planned. Even menu planning is in good hands with the Munich Wanderland foodie team.
