With the picture today I would finish the winter and go over to spring, as Germany will slowly but surely becoming greener every day from now on.
In the picture you can see the Jochberg in the sunrise with the Kesselberg in the foreground, taken during the ascent to the Herzogstand.
The Jochberg lies 1565 metres above sea level in the Bavarian Pre-Alps between Walchensee and Kochelsee. During the Würm Ice Age, it was a Nunatak, i. e. a mountain, whose summit towered about 150 m above the ice stream. The Kesselberg, the incision between Herzogstand and Jochberg, was an alpine gate; here a branch of the Isar glacier, which in turn was a branch of the Inntal glacier, flowed through at an altitude of about 1400 m. It was a small branch of the Inntal glacier. The northern side of the Jochberg is characterised by vertical main dolomite plates from the Upper Triassic. The southern side is particularly impressive due to its steep grass slopes.
The Herzogstand is a mountain in the Bavarian foothills of the Alps, 75 kilometres south of the city of Munich. It has an elevation of 1,731 metres and is northwest of Lake Walchen. Maximilian II of Bavaria had a hunting lodge built underneath today's so-called Herzogstand-house in 1857. His successor, King Ludwig II, had a royal lodge built further up the mountain in 1865. The Herzogstand Aerial Tramway, renewed in 1994 following a fire in 1992, runs to Herzogstand-house at 1,575 metres above sea level, and then continues on to the summit of Farnkopf at 1,627 metres.

The jochberg is a very popular mountain in the bavarian prealps. Not only for its easy climb, but also for the wonderful panorama. On one side the alpine foreland and on the other the walchensee with the higher mountains. On this picture you can see the walchensee with his little island.

The Jochberg offers one of my favorite views in the Bavarian pre-Alps.
