Direction

On the way to the village of Wörth, hikers cross the Sempt once and the Schwillach twice. Wörth is mentioned as early as 788 as "Weride", which meant "water-covered land" in Old High German.

St Peter's Church Wörth

A church dedicated to St Peter stood on the site of today's St Peter's Church as early as the 8th century. It had fallen into disrepair in the 18th century, so the parish priest Johann Paul Ostermayr campaigned for a new building, which was completed by the master builder Johann Baptist Lenthner by the middle of the 18th century. The church was built in a contemporary Baroque style. Local and regional artists and craftsmen created a real gem.

Direction

Southwards out of Wörth, the path turns left and leads through meadows and fields to Breitötting. From there it goes to Sonnendorf.

St Martin's Catholic Church with stork's nest

Sonnendorf is located on a historic Roman road, so there was already a church here in the 8th century. At that time, the patronage of St Martin was seen as the antithesis of that of St Pertrus. While he was the patron saint of the Romans and the nobility, Martin was the patron saint of the poor and the common people.

The church of St Martin is also architecturally unusual: the tower and nave have a gabled roof. The tower is crowned by a stork's nest, which is inhabited by the Adebar family every year and attracts a lot of attention. In particular, the annual ringing of the young storks in June is considered a small highlight in the village.

The interior of the church houses Gothic church statues from the 15th century.

Direction

The hike now leads along the Schwillach through Maiszagl and then through small wooded areas. At the Keckmühle mill, the trail crosses the Schwillach to the north-west.
After crossing the Moosgraben, the path turns sharply northwards and leads straight on to the Wiflinger Weiher pond.

Wiflinger pond

The Wiflinger Weiher was created in the 1960s when an enormous gravel deposit was discovered here and released for extraction. The lake, which looks so natural today, was originally a quarry pond. Over the past 60 years, it has become an increasingly popular excursion destination and bathing lake for the people of Munich. The water has richly planted banks that invite you to take a walk at any time of year. The mostly shallow entrances to the small bathing bays are particularly popular with families with small children. Those who prefer something a little more sporty can jump into the water from the jetty. A kiosk provides bathers with food and drink in good weather. Sanitary facilities are attached to the kiosk.

At weekends and on public holidays, the lake is supervised on a voluntary basis by the Wörth water rescue service from 12 noon to 6 pm, provided the weather is suitable for swimming.

Direction

The way back leads westwards along the Sempt to Wifling. In the centre of Wifling, the path turns sharply to the right and leads northwards out of the village and along the S-Bahn line to St. Koloman S-Bahn station.

Pilgrimage church of St Koloman

Koloman is the Irish word for hermit. In fact, a hermit still lived here in the 18th century.
However, the pilgrimage church of St Koloman was consecrated to the same Koloman who
who died a martyr's death on his pilgrimage in the 11th century near Stockerau (Austria). He was the son of an Irish king and was on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem.
The church was completed in 1718.
