    Munich Sports & Outdoors

    A big day out. At the Allianz Arena for FC Bayern v Freiburg. 1st against 5th, but Bayern had clinched the league title the week before.

Bayern won 1-0 through a cross from...

With a circumference of approx. 50 km, the lake is ideal to cycle around. Experienced cyclists can do it on one day, however without...

  • Hiking in the Bavarian Alps

    Lots of people go hiking in Bavaria. We were surprised by how many people were walking up and down the mountains. If the weather is nice, the area is great for hiking. There are so many nice trails it is hard to decide where to go. Almost all of them have some Alm on the way ( with a restaurant, so you can have a beer....). Hiking in the Alps is...

    Bavaria offers lots of great hiking opportunities from the Alps in the south to the Rhon and Frankische Schweiz in the north. Besides good walking shoes and rain proof gear, it's always good to pack some food in case you find a nice place like these ruins for a picnic.

    Bavaria has many good soccer clubs, but the one that stands out is of course Germany's No. 1: FC Bayern München!
