For those of you who are looking for a nice little tour for the whole family near Munich, I have a special tip for you: hiking to the castle ruin Hohenwaldeck.

Castle Ruin Hohenwaldeck

You start in Fischhausen at the little church and make your way to the Schnapperwirt. There you make a left, taking the hiking path up to the castle ruin Hohenwaldeck. It’s roughly a 30-minute steep walk, up to the ruin, but the breathtakingly beautiful views are so worth it.

Since it is a very popular tour, make sure to do it in the early morning hours, having your breakfast at the ruin.

From there you simply follow the trail sign to lake Schliersee, enjoying the magical views over the lake. All in all, it is a very easy two to three-hour tour.
