Teufelsberg Drachenberg

Berlin Day Hike: A Short Walk To Teufelssee

Since you cannot visit Teufelsberg (Devils’ Mountain) without those boring and expensive guides anymore I haven’t been there. In fact, Grunewald is still a green beauty above all. The cake at Ökowerk is fantastic and we took a short swim in the very cold and refreshing Teufelssee (Devils’ Lake) together with – apparently – the rest of Berlin 🙂

Location: Teufelsseechaussee – Drachenberg – around Teufelsberg – Teufelssee and back on the Teufelsseechaussee / Distance: 6 km / Weather: 27 °C, sunny / Camera: iPhone 6

Trip to the Bavarian Alps: Kampenwand

Today we had to meet our nemesis: A short stretch of about 15m with only a rope above the abyss. Just a hint: swearing helps a lot.

And after the descent, as it was Sunday, there was even some Blasmusik (a bavarian band playing traditional music on brass instruments).

Wallberg Tegernsee

Trip To The Bavarian Alps: Wallberg am Tegernsee

In a kind of kamikaze action we drove 650 km on friday night from Berlin to Rottach-Egern south of Munich to take part in a vertigo class. I highly recommend the useful lessons from our trainer Heike, who was a Höhenängstler (someone who has Vertigo) herself once, which makes her very credible.

Vertigo is not gone after two days but at least I know what is happening inside of me and what I do right or wrong in the moment of truth. The rest is training she says. And in fact: My confidence concerning the abyss has already increased slightly.

All the stress is forgotten when I’m standing on the top of a mountain and see the snow covered mountain tops of the near Austrian alps.
