Traditional WEEKEND in the Alps

Incredibly varied trip to Tannheimer Tal valley.

At the beginning of May 42 German and international students packed their backpacks and got ready for an exciting weekend at the Bad Kissinger Cottage at 1,792 m a.s.l.

On a Saturday morning they went to Grän by shuttle bus and start their hike from there.

In good weather, the tour first went through the forest, which was soon replaced by rocky and steep trails. After approx. 2.5 hours of hiking the first students arrived at the cosy rustic Bad Kissinger cottage. However, the effort was worth it and they enjoyed an excellent view over the surrounding valleys and mountains and a break for beer and snacks.

After the rooms were distributed and backpacks deposited, the students went for further hikes through the mountains, which were then covered by fog. Later back at the cottage they enjoyed a traditional 3-course meal for dinner and great games.

The next day, some students got up very early to experience the sunrise in the Alps. Then they had a rich breakfast with plenty kind of cereals, sausage, cheese, jam, honey, coffee, tea and juice. It was awesome!!

Reinforced and full of energy, the students split into groups to hike to the surrounding peaks: the Aggenstein (1985 m) and Brentenjoch (2000 m).

Tired but happy they finally arrived at the parking lot in the late afternoon, where the shuttle bus had already been waiting for them to bring them back to Kempten University.

The great views, the beautiful paths, the rocks, the cottage and specially the fun they had together made this trip for the participants unforgettable. And of course also the wonderful weather!
