Sunny November also attracted many people from Munich to the mountains.

During a hike in the Karwendel Mountains, a couple got lost in deep snow - and had to be rescued.

Because of the mass rush in Corona times, however, one municipality prohibits cycling on a popular Upper Bavarian lake.

The aim is to better guide the many visitors in the future.
