Into the Wild 2021


What does sustainability mean anyway? Why is sustainable development not only a necessity for all of us, but also an enrichment? We want to understand, experience and discuss this together outside of closed spaces in nature.




Together we explore the ecology of the Ammersee, learn about important tree species, shrubs and herbs of our homeland, observe animals when they want to be discovered, look at flowing waters, experience how the glaciers of the last cold period have shaped our landscape and discuss how humans have lived with and from nature since the dawn of man to the Anthropocene, how we shape it and where our journey is going.

We will learn not only from the field trip leader, but also from each other. The hike is doable for everyone. The path has hardly any inclines and we take our time to pause again and again and experience the nature around us.

Having arrived at the monastery of Andechs in the afternoon, we can strengthen ourselves in the monastery tavern before making our way back in a circular route.


Into the Wild is part of the BayernTourNatur campaign of theBavarian State Ministry for the Environment and Consumer Protection.

Bayern Tour Natur



Full-day field trip between Ammersee and Andechs



The field trip with Dr. Alexis Katechakis between Ammersee and Andechs Monastery gave me fascinating insights into our natural resources such as the Ammersee, the Kienbach creek and the forest as well as its inhabitants. The vivid explanations of ecological contexts made this short hike an enriching experience in nature.

A great field trip. This was one of the most enriching and interesting events I have ever participated in and definitely an impetus to walk through nature with more open eyes and to read up on some of the topics.
