Hike through the Gleißental – Deisenhofen, Germany

Hike through the Gleißental – Deisenhofen, Germany

Deisenhofen is a town in Bavaria Germany south of Munich.

The Gleißental is a little more than eight kilometers long and around 25 meters deep in the district of Munich. The dry valley extends from Deininger Weiher in the south to Deisenhofen in the north.

The starting point of our hike is the parking lot at Deisenhofen train station. From there it goes south along the railway tracks to Laufzorner Strasse. Here we follow the signs to Deininger Weiher. At the end of the tar road it goes into the nature reserve Gleißental. On the forest path in the forest, it is now leisurely through the valley. It's a very easy and leisurely hike. You can do the “big round” up to the Deininger Weiher with a length of about 20 km.

We decided on the shortened version with about 11km. At a hunter's station right on the path, we took the shortcut out of the valley and hiked directly north to Kreuzpullach. From there we hiked further north in the forest to our starting point in Deisenhofen.
