Crossing the Alps on Ludwig Grassler’s „TRAUMPFAD“

The idea to walk the Munich-Venice Ludwig Grassler’s „Traumpfad“ (free translation = „Trail of Dreams“) came up in summer 2004, during a 10-day Karwendel crossing from North (Krün) to South and back to Gießenbach, when we first flipped through a picture book on the “Traumpfad München – Venedig” at the „Halleranger-Alm“ with the author of the book and inventor of the trail, Ludwig Grassler, who happened to be sitting next to us in the hut that evening, though we did not know him until then.

So by chance a great conversation with Ludwig Grassler developed on the Halleranger-Alm and at the same time our idea grew to “walk” the trail of dreams from Munich to Venice one day by ourselve.

The realization of our idea was only to be taken up again many years later, after several professional and spatial changes within Germany, even if the thoughts of this idea and the plans were always present during the annual mountain holiday in the meantime.

In 2020, this old plan and idea should finally be realised, after our son, Carsten, graduates from school this year and the summer before his further education almost forced itself upon him. Thus, already in December 2019 we started to study the route via various guides and reports or experiences from the Internet and subsequently defined the stages. After all, contacts with huts and inns were made already at the turn of the year 2019/20 – not because it would have been mandatory at that time, but because I myself had to make my own holiday planning for 2020 to my employees and colleagues until the end of January.

This website was initially intended for quick documentation by the blog author. It was furthermore intended to provide status information for selected addressees, mainly via pictures and short texts on the stages. After the tour, we then added some experiences as well as a few tips and information in the hope that it might be interesting and helpful for one or the other. And finally, this website and the stage blog should and will certainly also be a long and beautiful memory for us.
