But what does Glow-Athlon actually mean?
Biathlon is one of the most popular winter sports in some countries. The sport consists of two disciplines: cross-country skiing and shooting.You've never been cross-country skiing, you don't own skis and logically you don't have a suitable gun at home and there really isn't much snow in Munich at the moment either? 'No problem! The disciplines are understood a little differently on this tour. Cross-country skiing is exchanged for walking and every shot at the shooting range is exchanged with a mulled wine - or any other drink you like - at the different locations. The tour adapts to all conditions and is suitable for everyone.
There are different types of competitions, which you can also try on the Glow-Athlon tour.- Relay: 4 persons start together- Single-Mixed Relay for the romantics among you: Perfect for couples, because one woman and one man start together. - Mass start: Perfect for a larger group (max. 30 people)
Tell your friends, partner or family. Head out for a fun day discovering something of Munich in a slightly different way.
You have not had enough yet? Then you'll find another interesting winter story and a longer walk where you can experience winter activities for yourself.
Important! Do not overdo it and take care of yourself and your fellow men.
Tips and hintsTo keep the scope not too large we have chosen a To-Go "shooting" stand for each shot.
The name "Glüh-Athlon" can also be understood as "Kinderpunsch-Athlon" or "Juice-Athlon".
The focus is on movement, fun and time together.
Before the next bridge comes, turn left, walk to the street and cross it. On the right side you can now see the Prinz-Carl-Palais, on the left side the corresponding fountain.
The route continues past the poet's garden. The Poet´s Garden is like a penalty lap, because you run a loop there. However, this "penalty lap" is definitely worth it. Afterwards again to the exit of the poet garden. Turn right and you can already see the beginning of the Hofgarten. Pass the Dianatempel and walk in the direction of Odeonsplatz.
At Odeonsplatz turn right and follow Ludwigstraße. Then take the left turn into Theresienstraße. As soon as you cross Türkenstraße, turn right until you reach the starting point "Gartensalon" again.
