North America, Asia, Europe – including the Mediterranean region. A collection of trees from all over the world, the Bavarian State Arboretum, is being created on an area of around one hundred hectares in the Kranzberg Forest. Since the first plantations in 1987, more than 300 species of trees and shrubs have been planted, more than twice as many as there should ever be. If you walk along the winding paths you will be shifted more and more into a dream world, consisting of trees and bushes, which invite you to stay and guarantee experience.
As this was my first visit to the world forest, I am sure that this was not my last!
After the previous weeks in December were snowless, it is lovely to finally be able to stomp in the snow. My first tour this time took me to the Spitzingsee, which is located at an altitude of 1084 meters.
The lake is surrounded by the Schlierseer mountains.
A relatively flat hiking trail winds around the lake, which invites you to capture winter impressions in many places.
The best time, in my opinion, is around 4 p.m., when the sun slowly disappears behind the surrounding mountains and fog covers the lake. This is the moment when it gets really mystical!
