Length: 59.9 mi • Est. Multi-day
On this stage you leave Germany and begin the section in Austria. It goes gently uphill and downhill, but overall without any major incline. There are always nice places to stop for a break where you can fortify yourself or warm up with hot chocolate in colder weather. If you want to make a stopover in historic Linz, you can discover the sights there such as the Pöstlingberg and the Lentos Art Museum.Show more

Length: 9.3 mi • Est. 6 h 32 m
The route is quite demanding, but very varied and a real classic; Hikers are rewarded with great views of the foothills of the Alps and its lakes as well as, towards the Alps, of the Wetterstein Mountains and Zugspitze. The starting point for this route is a parking lot, from there the path is marked with a yellow sign. It goes counter-clockwise towards the Herzogstand. The Herzogstandhaus is also a popular excursion destination for non-hikers who use the cable car to get there. The Heimgartenhütte is a great place to rest and if you want to jump into the Walchensee after the hike, you only have to cross the street once to the beach. It is advisable to take some warmer clothes with you in summer as it can be cool in the higher elevations. Depending on the time of year, this hike is moderately to heavily visited.Show more

Length: 12.1 mi • Est. 7 h 49 m
Very long conditionally demanding trail if you do it in one day. Alternatively, you can divide the route also on two days, with the first day hiking to Soiernhaus and on the second day from Soiernhaus to Schöttelkarspitze and the descent. Scenicwise, this is unique route - expect a mountain backdrop with interesting rock formations and the two emerald green Soiernseen in the basin between Schöttelkarspitze, Soiernspitze and Krapfenkarspitze. In other words - a real insider tip! From the trail parking lot in Krün (free) start, first over the Isar bridge and after this the wide hiking (forest) away (No. 364) in the direction of Fischbachalm long and steadily uphill. Exactly at the height of the Fischbachalm branch off to the right of the idyllic Lakaiensteig. This narrow path initially runs harmlessly over pasture and forest areas, before being partially exposed and only partly covered by cable insurance on the eastern mountain flank of the foothills winds to Schöttelkarspitze along. If you are not sure-footed, you should stay on the wide forest path from Fischbachalm. The Lakaiensteig runs without significant gradients, since already at the Fischbachalm the height of 1402 m is reached and to the Soiernhaus on a walking distance of about 3.5 km only 220 Hm are to be mastered. The further ascent to the Schöttelkarspitze is not particularly difficult, but some places require surefootedness. The last few meters to the summit are probably the most difficult, especially in the descent, because the path runs mostly over steep boulders and (loose) rock and thereby leads over crash-prone areas - missteps are absolutely forbidden here.Show more

Length: 6.0 mi • Est. 5 h 5 m
Granted, you're not all alone on this route, but the hike from Schau to Kampenwand via the Gorialm is a wonderful day trip for hikers and mountain bikers. The route to the Kampenwand rewards one with beautiful vantage points. Especially on the summit, at the "Chiemgau-Kreuz", when you are at the highest iron mountain cross of the Bavarian Alps, you have wonderful views and a very special summit experience.Show more

This route starts in the town of Tegernsee am Bahnhof, very close to the beautiful Tegernsee. From there you first walk uphill in the direction of Neureuth-Haus and Gindelalmschneid, from where you can enjoy a beautiful view of the Alpine foothills. Wonderfully lonely and originally the Grindelalmweg then only goes downhill. On the way to Hausham you pass the Huberalm, where there is a small café.Show more

Length: 13.3 mi • Est. 7 h 54 m
The Pfrontner mountain has two very different faces as far as the approach is concerned. From the top station of the Breitenberg Bahn there are only 100 vertical meters to cover in wide riding and walking paths, so that you can meet many excursionists on this side of the mountain. However, if you climb from the west, you have to overcome 900 meters, but experience a beautiful and comparatively lonely ridge walk. This circular walk leads around the Breitenberg.Show more

Length: 7.1 mi • Est. 4 h 4 m
Although you will only have to conquer 500 meters in altitude, this route will surprise you with wonderful views. Its no without reason that the Aueralm is one of the most famous on the Tegernsee. From early till late the terraces are open here and a lot of visitors enjoy the view of the Hirschberg, Ross- and Buchenstein, as well as the Wallberg and many more. Even though it is snowing here in winter, the path is still hackable throughout the year thanks to its low altitudes. In summer, it is even possible to bring a stroller but be expect a few steeper passages. Both the ascent and the descent are very well signposted throughout the entire trail. First you follow the idyllic path along the Söllbach and a bit later from the creek on the right uphill. After about an hour you reach a beautiful viewpoint with a great view of the Hirschberg. Continue uphill and soon you come to a crossroads, which you follow to the left. Now it is not far to the end of the forest and soon we reach the clearing and can see the roof of the Aueralm, that is only a stone's throw away.Show more
