Great hiking fun for little explorers on the tracks of the ice age!


The Maisinger Gorge in the Fünf-Seen-Land in the middle of Upper Bavaria was formed during the last ice age. The leisurely hike with children through gorge has to offer a wide range of experiences for the kids and one thing is definitely not – boring. The family hike is therefore also suitable for kids who do not yet have much hiking experience.

The trail starts at the Starnberg waterworks. You can either park your car there or walk the short distance from the Starnberg S-Bahn station to the starting point. By the way, 80 percent of the water used in Starnberg comes fresh from the Maising Gorge, because the drinking water quality is excellent.

The first part runs along the stream and across extensive meadows. A wooden bridge leads into the beech forest, which provides plenty of shade, especially in the hot summer months. Idyllically, it goes along the brook through the Maisinger gorge. Children especially love this section of the trail, because both the water and numerous steep slopes and small half-caves make nature in the Maisinger Gorge a true play paradise. So it can happen that you are on the road for the total distance of 3 km a whole two hours.

The last part of the hike runs through the village of Pöcking. At the main road you turn right and after a few meters you can already see the Georg Ludwig inn. We especially love the stop there with the children. There is a large playground and the Bavarian food always tastes good. There are dishes suitable for children, but no french fries. Instead, the best mashed potatoes far and wide. Parents can enjoy Bavarian classics and seasonal delicacies, such as wild garlic dumplings. For dessert, the Kaiserschmarrn is absolutely recommended.

After the beer garden visit has been savored to the fullest, it’s time to move on. Either one runs directly back or pays the Maisinger lake still another attendance. By the way, there is another beer garden hidden there – the Maisinger Seehof.

In summer, you should definitely pack a bathing suit for the kids. In addition, our children were very happy about the carving knife and magnifying glass they brought with them. There is so much to discover.
