Bergsteigen mit Kindern: Steinernes Meer oder „Warum der ‚Große Hundstod‘, ‚Großer Hundstod‘ heißt“

Das Steinerne Meer übt mit seiner kargen, schroffen Felslandschaft einen ganz besonderen, fast magischen Reiz aus. Allerdings ist es gar nicht so einfach dort hin zu kommen. Von jeder Seite aus, ob zum Kärlinger Haus, zum Riemannhaus oder zum Ingolstädter Haus, hat man ca. 1300hm zu bewältigen. Das ist mit Kindern schon ziemlich viel. Wir haben uns für das Ingolstädter Haus entschieden. Warum wir das sehr empfehlenswert finden, welchen Gipfel wir in der Nähe bestiegen haben und was es mit Toten Hunden auf sich hat, erfahrt Ihr in diesem Blogpost… Read More

familyadventures -familienreisekongress

alright.so this is a looooong post.get ready to read a lot and to look at a lot of photos.

but no worries.i didn’t work and wrote on that all night long.this is mainly an old post with a hiking and mountaincabin description from almost a year ago.you may have read it before. but because of a present occasion i thought i put it here for you, so you have the chance to reread it.as you might know we live in the bavarian alps now for about 1,5 years and have been active in the alps with hiking and other mounteneering sports before.our hearts beat for mountaincabins, hiking, several day hikes with overnights at mountaincabins.we did that in other countries as well, like new zealand, but here in the alps, we did quiete a few now.without the girls and when the girls were born, with the girls.but if you wanna hear more about our experiences with mountainhut overnights and hiking in the alps with our two little ones, you can now hear and see me life and find out more about our familyadventures in the mountains very very soon in an interview.

a little autumnal mountainhut adventure – wagneralm

the weekend was dreamy and the weather couldn’t have been more perfect. the colours and the light of a golden fall were almost dramatic. we spent it outside and did little trips.to lakes in the mountains and to forests up there. we all didn’t want it to end. when my husband told me he would do homeoffice today, i was like ‘yes,yes,yes’. so in the morning the girls and me went on our weekly monday excursion/trip. the weather? again, dreamy. so we walked and biked around our woods and moor almost half the day. we couldn’t get enough though and knew we will spend the other half of the day outside as well, after a lunchbreak.

friday series – another foggy octoberday in the mountains

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

we have a lot of foggy autumn days here in the mountains. nothing special about that. but on that monday, when my girls requested to go up that mountain, where a little church is standing and their favourite swing, it was a special – kind of magical – foggy day. the girls were so excited and happy about our little trip that my heart was filled and i didn’t even mind not having a nice panoramic view from the top. no, the fog almost swallowed us. we were the only ones up there. that honestly scarred me a bit, being alone up there with the girls. but they are great hikers by now and carful in nature.

we have been up there with them several times, but that day i was surprised by their motivation to walk and walk and walk. a. asked me several times to get carried by me, but as soon as she saw her sister exploring and discovering something new on the way, she asked to get down and join her……oh the woods and nature itself have the power to stir up ciriousity in our children. thats one reason to get out there, no matter what the weather looks like. dressed in the right clothes and off they are. proudly presenting us their finds and treasures they discover, inviting us in their world and thoughts about the woods and what and who might live in those holes in the ground. enough said, i hope the photos whisper to you. about the beauty and mystery of the woods and our nature.
