    The starting point is the town centre of Krün, accessible via the bus stop of the same name. Via Krottenkopfstrasse, follow the signs in the direction of Barmsee. Through extensive meadows and the Bannwald forest, you continue to the northern shore of the Barmsee. The lake invites the whole familyto stay and bathe. The route continues on a leisurely walk along the lakeshore in the direction of Geroldsee. The trail leads through a moist meadow, a steeply ascending forest and on through colourful flowering meadows to Gerold. The trail leads back through the village and then follows the cycle path to Klais on the left. At the main road, go through the subway and continue left towards the petrol station. Before the petrol station, turn right up to the Sonnenhügel and follow the forest path to the idyllic bathing lake, the Grubsee (with water slide and bathing facility). To get back to Krün, follow the signs towards the Barmsee hotel and restaurant. From here, walk along the main road for a short distance until you reach the footpath on the left. Across the meadows, past the Maximilianshof, you return to Krün.
