The geohash is in the city of Mittenwald.
- TheOneRing - by public transport.
From home, Mittenwald was easy to reach by train, so I took a chance. Mittenwald is close to the German-Austrian border and I passed it when I was geohashing in Innsbruck earlier this year.
Checking the time table of DB, I recognised that between two trains I could take were two hours delay, so I took the earlier one. Good choice, more about that later.
From the train station the geohash was about 300m away. Half past eleven, mission accomplished. And now? Well, I planned to walk through Mittenwald and maybe to find a restaurant or a cafe, but I still was indecisive. Already from the geohash, I saw the valley station of the Karwendelbahn, a funicular, and decided to take a closer look.
And here started part two of the tour, beginning with a very good decision: tickets weren't that expensive, so I went up. On top, there were signs to a point for panoramic views; my first goal. After walking back, I was again indecisive what to do next. There was a loop round, and well why not.
The different in Altitude were just about 100m, but the scenic view...indescribable. Photographs can only give a rough impression. Something I didn't know at the beginning: I was crossing the German-Austrian border, because a very small part of the trail is on Austrian territory.
After one hour or so, I completed the loop. Maybe you can be faster, but then you miss most of the impressive view. Afterwards, I took the next funicular to the valley station and walked back to the train station.
And exactly when I arrived at the train station, it started to rain. In the end, I was lucky to have taken the earlier train, because this way I completed the geohash and the framework programme.
Wonderful tour, really really great.
