Berglicht is part of the section München-Oberland of the German alpine club (DAV) since November 2020. Please register for the hikes via the Berglicht website on the DAV portal.

To participate in the Berglicht hikes you have to be a member of DAV München-Oberland. You can participate in a one-time trial and get to know us without any membership.

The participation fee for a hike is 4 euros. For non-members there is an insurance fee of 2,50 Euro, which I pay to the section. Please register for the trial participation.

The participants bear all own associated travel costs. I suggest a meeting point and means of transport (mostly public transport), but you will decide for yourself how to get to the meeting point. If car pools are formed or group tickets are bought, I am happy to help with the organization. The participants themselves are responsible for sharing the costs.

During the hike each participant is responsible for her/his own food and water. Make sure you drink enough and stay hydrated. The hiking food should be easy to digest and not weigh you down. Choose foods with complex carbohydrates and proteins instead of fatty or sugary foods. Try a simple light cheese sandwich. On some hikes we will take a break at a mountain hut to eat and drink. This will be mentioned in the hike description.

Please register for the hikes via the Berglicht registration website on the DAV portal. This is usually possible until the day before the hike. Depending on the hike, the number of participants is limited to 8 to 12 people.

Please assess before registering whether you can meet the requirements of the hike in terms of type of hike, difficulty, duration and ascent elevation gain.

Please follow the recommendations of the DAV for mountain sports in times of the corona virus (in German).

As a registered participant, you will receive detailed information by email about how to get to the meeting point, the destination and the planned route of the respective hike.

We walk in almost all types of weather. If the weather is very bad, the hike will be cancelled. If the weather conditions are unclear I will inform all registered participants the evening before the hike or on the same morning of the hike via Whatsapp and email whether the hike will take place.
The hike may be cancelled as late as on the morning of the event. I therefore recommend to read your email in the morning before you start from home.

I am not liable for any travel costs or other associated costs incurred in the case of cancellation.​​



Suitable materials for underwear, socks and outerwear on a hike are synthetic fibers or functional clothing made from synthetic or natural fibers. They dry quickly and keep you comfortable and warm.


Cotton is not suitable for hiking because it saturates quickly with sweat, does not easily dry and the rubbing of soaked cotton against the skin can cause skin irritation. Not only themoisture of sweat but also walking through wet grass and along wet leaves will get your cotton clothes damp and can make you feel cold and uncomfortable.

For a hike it is best to dress in layers. The inner layer, underwear and socks, wicks moisture off your skin. The mid layer insulates from the cold and depending on the weather sometimes consists of several layers of clothing.The outer layer provides protection against rain, snow and wind.
