Walking can be used in many ways. In Munich’s Green belt, the planners of a system of paths used it as a professional creative practice. Secondly, it was co-creative action for the participation process for path planning. Third, it was used as practice of path-making. And finally, fourth, it was a planning method to decipher old and new traces and trails. In this interplay walking could contribute to understand the complexity of large scale landscapes and its entanglements.
