Tour description:

Waging - Füging - Sprinzenberg - Otting - Oberleiten - Gessenberg - Waging

From Waging, first follow the signs "8" along Geppingerstraße, then keep to the left at the signs and follow the field path to Füging . The way up reveals beautiful views over Waging and the lake. Halfway there is a bench where you can enjoy the view without haste. After the hamlet of Füging, the path leads through the forest to Sprinzenberg and from there on to Otting . In Otting there is the opportunity to stop at the Oberwirt inn and to visit the Church of St. Stephen , which was consecrated in 749 by the Holy Bishop Virgil. From the church, the path then leads back to Waging. When leaving Otting via Pfarrer-Haslwimmer-Straße, you cross the main street at the end and follow the hiking trail through the forest to Oberleiten .

When the forest clears, you have a wonderful view over the meadows and forests to the Chiemgau Alps. Several benches adorn the edge of the path and invite you to linger. To get to Waging, turn your back on Oberleiten and follow the dirt road to Gessenberg . Gessenberg Castle can only be viewed from the outside, as it is privately owned, but you can visit the castle chapel . After Gessenberg, the path branches off to the left and in the forest the hiking trail goes off to the right. When you leave the whale piece, you reach the center of Waging again.

Thanks to the level paths, the round tour can be used with a pram and is ideal for families with children. The Alpen- und Waginger Seeblick-Tour is a nice hike to explore the area around Waging.
