Day 27. Bad Tölz – Kloster Schäftlarn.
There is not much left to tell. The story will end tomorrow and we have decided to hike 40km today so that we arrive early in Munich the following day. It’s very flat now but the 40km take their time through forests and along the Isar. We don’t want to continue hiking but it’s our goal to reach Munich by foot so we just walk and walk. Step after step we get to our destination the Kloster Schäftlarn for some good food and rest.
Day 28. Kloster Schäftlarn – Munich. It’s 5h30 to Munich according to our guidebook. Again all the way along the now familiar Isar. Again just driven by our will to complete the section. We meet plenty of runners along the way. On this Sunday everyone is our there doing some exercise!
I feel more excited once we get close to Munich and finally we reach our goal, the Marienplatz. As our beginning, the ending is among masses of tourists (although admittedly there were more in Venice!). We take a few pictures and treat ourselves to insanely expensive coffee and cake with view on the Marienplatz.
Then it’s time to say goodbye. My sister is taking the train back to Hamburg. I am off to my hostel for a shower before meeting my friends and their newborn! Tomorrow I will be leaving for Salzburg and I can’t wait to wear my clothes waiting for me in the trunk of my car I left in Salzburg two months ago. I now spent two months in the same three shirts and it will be grant to put on some non hiking stuff and relax a few days!
