Hiking up to Herzogstand

In this post I would like to share with you guys some pictures from our hiking trip to Herzogstand, a peak next to Walchensee in Bayern, Germany.

Walchensee is one of the most beautiful lakes in Bayern and a must see when visiting especially Munich. It is just where Alps start and you will take panoramic pictures of Alps beautified with a turquoise colored water.

Here is a beautiful picture of Walchensee, you can just have a drink, put your legs in the water and watch beautiful snowy Alps for hours. Also possible to swim.

The nature is breathtaking in Walchensee. It feels like you are on holiday and you never want to go back home.

After 15 minutes of hiking, we could already see the villages and snow Alps behind the lake. We were looking forward to the view on the top. Already setting up high expectations after this view.

The harmony of clouds, green color, snowy mountains and blue sky made us feel like stop and just watch. It just takes all your stress away.

Getting closer to the peak and already wondering how the view will be from the top. We can feel the oxygen. The weather is hot and we feel like drinking water all the time. 2 hours passed.

We are on the top! If we look far away, we can see the snowy Austrian Alps. They are amazing. It was warm, I expected wind but it was not that windy. When looking at the mountains I remember our skiing times. I feel like missing it. Anyway, let’s enjoy the summer first.

Walking a bit further and Walchensee is now visible. There is nothing else to say than enjoying the view. Snow on the closest mountain makes me feel like I am looking at a Dalmatian dog. Funny!
