‘Uh oh’ here I go again, let’s get mapping. Any tips or clues welcome as we are a bit short on detail other than this map. update – It goes without wonder that our first two offers of help were from German readers, Andreas who has helped work out the modern place names, and the incredible ‘STB’ who without asking bowled up with detailed original maps for days 1 and 2 of the event.

This will be a rolling task based on sparse information.. come back to see what we are finding. Aided by just two 1936 issues of ‘the Motor Cycle‘ and without the final day report this map and list of places is the best at the moment. Any Germans, Bavarians able to help please do. as ever •Bold = known checkpoints, Italics = I could not locate the place.

Day 3 Saturday:
Freudenstadt – •Ziegelwasen – •Empfingen – Geislingen – •Thiergarten – Sigmaringen – •Pfullendorf – •Zussdorf – •Weingarten – •Wangen (Lunch) – •Weitnau – •Nesselwang – Füssen – •Unterreithen – Oberammergau – •Garmisch

It apears the map in ‘the Motor Cycle‘ is wrong here, the report clearly sets the way from the start as being Garmisch – Walchensee – Bad Tölz – Holzkirchen and the return leg was  Holzkirchen – Paß Kesselberg – Garmisch which to my eye is the same road in different directions. The map has a western loop passing near WürmSee.

Garmisch – Mittenwald – •Vorderriß – •Wießee – Kreuth – •Enterrottacher – •Jossethal – •Stardelberg (Lunch) – Miesbach – •Dietramszell – •Sankt Heinrich – Würm Sea – •Ammerbrücke – •SchöffauGarmisch
