Halfway between the lakes of Tegernsee and Achensee sits this rarely visited summit in the „Blauberge“ (Blue Mountains). There are three routes leading to the top which differ much when it comes to condition needed. Most of the time you will be recommended to take the route leading through the Wolfsschlucht. This is the most scenic way but since you will have to cope with a very difficult ascent at the end… Weiterlesen
Starting in the Rißtal this tours leads first to the Plumsjoch cabin. From there you have several choices. Depending on how good in shape you are you can climb the Bettlerkarspitze and then go back to where you started or you can walk across the Mondscheinspitze and Pletzach Valley to Pertisau. Since I came to the Gernalm around noon, I decided to go for a second ascent and walked over Guetenbergalm to… Weiterlesen
For this tour you will need to be in good shape since you will climb quite a few feet uphill. The reward for doing this is an awesome view almost all of the time over the Ehrwalder Basin and the Zugspitze. The trail is easy to walk and apart from the last piece to the summit of the Ups there are no difficult points to master. The ridge between Ups and Daniel… Weiterlesen
Even if you have to climb almost 4000 ft. to the summit, this tour is easy to do as long as you are in good shape. The ascent is long but not too steep and you will be rewarded with fantastic views of the Karwendel mountains. Due to the excellent connection with public transportation from/to Lenggries you can leave your car at home. During the tour you will come to the Tölzer… Weiterlesen
During this diversified tour you will first discover a spectacular canyon, where you will encounter a lot of people at times. In the further course breathtaking views of the Kramer mountain, the Zugspitze and towards the end the Ester and Karwendel mountains await you. If you are afraid of heights you might want to take the alternate route that I will be describing later in this post. On the stretch between the… Weiterlesen
Really outstanding mountain panorama with a view of the Zugspitze awaits you during this tour. Sure, there is a road in the valley that connects Oberammergau and Ettal but this would mean that you miss the great views of the surrounding mountains. To reach the summit of the Ettaler Mandl you will have to climb a bit but the route is secured with wire rope and even beginners can do this. I… Weiterlesen
The long and exhausting ascent of about 4100 ft. will be rewarded with a panorama that will literally take your breath away. It’s worth not to take the direct way through the Isar Valley if you want to walk from Scharnitz to Mittenwald. Here is the proof that this detour via the Brunnensteinspitze is really a great experience.
This tour is for the biggest part of it a rather easy walk but the ascent through the „Wolfsschlucht“ (wulf’s gorge) to the summit of the „Schildenstein“ should only be clambered up if you are in good shape and not afraid of heights. In tour books this tour is marked as difficult.
Today I will write about a tour that is a bit strenuous at some points. Your reward will be breathtaking views of the Zugspitz massif. My guide book described the tour in the opposite direction, but since I wanted to end the tour at the St. Martin alpine cabin with one of their delicious blueberry pancakes, I decided to walk this tour in the other direction. Depending on wether you prefer to… Weiterlesen
Scenically this is one the most beautiful tours, I hiked so far. I had to stop pretty often to admire the monumental mountain scenery. And here comes the good thing about this hike: You don’t need to be shaped up for Iron Man to walk this tour. The ascent through the Laliederer valley is mostly smooth. There is just one relatively short steep ascent to the Falkenhütte and the descent to the… Weiterlesen
