Challenging but incredible views await you. My wife and I chose this for our last day in Germany and we are so glad we did. You can also hike along the ridge line near the summit for a variety of other hikes, which we did as well.

A great hike with views to make it worthwhile. if you don't take the gondola up or down make sure up walk to it as the best view of the basin can be found from it rather than higher up (peak was fogged in the day i was there). Most of the pics here don't to the lake justice (including mine, phone died before i went to check out the gondola), most beautiful alpine lake I've seen.

Lovely view - great walk! You need to bring some condition with you and don't forget water in summer or hot tea in winter to drink :)

I did this hike in March, with a German friend. If you want to have an authentic Bavarian hike, this is where I would start. You can choose to begin your hike with a ride in a cable car half way up the mountain. This will get you past the very steep first part of the trail. The first part of the trail is very steep, and was really hard to climb in some places, due to the ice. There is a German restaurant / lodge halfway up the mountain. The food is outstanding. The view from the top of Herzogstand is wonderful. I will be back to do this trail again in the spring time.
