Oxford Alpine Excursion 2017

On a Sunday at the end of October 10 courageous, well-equipped hikers gathered at the foot of mount Wallberg (close to lake Tegernsee) braving rain and cold temperatures. And once again the theme “there is no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong gear” payed fully off.

The crowd scaled the summit of mount Setzberg with lots of chatter in the air and was rewarded with some beautiful, mystic views onto the lake, crispy fresh air and even some first snowflakes at the peak.

After mastering the quite muddy last ascent to the top of mount Setzberg (with a few acrobatic slip-ups of several Oxonians) the group could warm-up in the freshly renovated mountain hut “Altes Wallberghaus”, enjoying some delicious hot goulash soup. Freshly energized the descent almost felt like a relaxed stroll.

When reaching the parking lot again after this wonderful hike, the proud mountaineers did not have to say good-bye immediately, but could conclude the day in a relaxed atmosphere with some cake and tea at the parents’ house of one of our fellow Oxonian close to lake Tegernsee.

Sun, rain or snow – we will do it again next year!
