Hiking to the Ettaler Mandl from Ettal followed by a tour through the monastery, church, a cafe and a lokal cheese shop. The starts in the small village of Ettal. You walk through the forest along a small river. Later you have to continue via ferreta. It takes about 2.5 hours to reach the summit. The view is great in all directions. After the hiking the village of Ettal offers many activities that include relaxation, food, sightseeing and shopping. There a are many provabilities to sleep in the village.

This is a great hike, but it's not a moderate one unless 700m of elevation change and a rather steep 15 min via ferrata climb at the end is moderate for you. Children must be experienced to enjoyably make this trek and a safety harness is probably a must for most children. The 360 view, though, is worth the 4+ hours roundtrip to complete this climb.
