Vacation and relaxation in Bavaria, Magdalena Neuner's home state - you can find all that and more in the Alpine village of Wallgau. "That makes me very, very proud...", those were Magdalena Neuner's first words after the opening of the new "Magdalena Neuner Panorama Trail" in Wallgau - yet another attraction in the Alpenwelt Karwendel region!
...Family members, friends, the mayor of Wallgau and the inhabitants, plus a host of Magdalena Neuner's fans, were present at the festive opening ceremony for the new "Magdalena Neuner Panorama Trail" at the Wallgau Sonnleiten. The visitors - many of whom had come from afar - watched the two-time Olympic Champion and twelve-time World Champion cut the white-and-blue ribbon marking the head of the new theme trail.
This unique theme hiking trail with an elevation change of around 320 m (1050 ft.) informs hikers and biathlon fans alike about the life and athletic career of this pleasant native of Wallgau on 28 descriptive information boards. The somewhat more challenging section of the theme hike starts at the "Haus des Gastes", an inn in the center of Wallgau from where you have a splendid view of the entire Isar Valley. From there it is a leisurely walk from the northern exit of the town to Maxhütte, a popular alpine inn at an altitude of 1022 m (3353 ft.).
There are nine other theme trails in Mittenwald, Krün, and Wallgau that provide interesting information on the Leutasch Geisterklamm/Ghost Gorge, the Isar River as an important habitat, and the natural treasures of the region - for hikes that are sure to be fun for the whole family!
