Donkey walking Bavarian Forest

En route with donkeys.

You experience nearly infinite nature scenery in one of the most beautiful hiking areas of Germany – in the Bavarian Forest families are especially very welcome. Here, where the river Danube separates the first 3000-meter high summit of the Bayernwald-mountains from the Isar river valley, is the location of the holiday region Sonnenwald. Due to the proximity of the river and the warm plain makes this region particularly prone to lots of sunshine and hence offers the perfect climate for the lovable donkeys, who will accompany you on this hiking holiday. Together with your trusted animal companions you enjoy marvellous viewpoints, exciting adventure trails and comfortable Bavarian inns. The well-trained donkeys will patiently accompany you from place to place. At the end of each day a barn awaits the donkey and a comfortable bed with a delicious dinner awaits you.

Itinerary

Please arrive by 4pm (Sat by 11am) at the donkey farm at the latest  - since the basic training for donkey leading starts straight away followed by a small hiking tour. As a reward a delicious Bavarian meal awaits in the evening.

approx. 1 hour

Departure from Eselhof to the first stage around 10.00 am. Over the breadjacket bar with tower cafe viewing platform on the summit. On the way there is a children's adventure trail.

5 - 6 hours
approx. 4/9/12 km

On a direct way, it would be only a short distance but here the Büchelsteinrunde or the a bit shorter Steinbergrunde with its fantastic view is tempting. First you go south to the parking space of the ski lift. There you can decide if you want to walk in the direction of Kerschbaum and circle the Büchelstein or if the hike at the Steinbergrunde is sufficient. In any case you get out of the car park again and walk along the mountain to Olivet to the family pension on the mountain farm Wimmer to the yodel farmer.

approx 4/12/16 km

Not only you are getting a tasty breakfast. Also your donkey has to start the day well feeded. Then you are going back to the donkey farm. Arrival approx. 14:00.

approx. 2 hours
approx. 5 km
