Very STEEP HIKE! There are no flat resting sections on this hike at all. My family hiked this together. We hiked across the Grand Canyon last year so we are not faint of heart. Even my husband was surprised by the moderate label, especially the last rock climbing section. I am sure the views were amazing, but I did not attempt to get to the very top. We all hiked over to the Laber to enjoy the restaurant. Then my daughters and I took the gondola down to Oberammergau, while my husband and sons hiked back down to Ettal for the car.

Overall a great trail, just know that the trail is still closed at about the 6 mile point, forcing you to turn around and making it and out-and-back, vs a round trip. I saw something about this on a German site, but since no other reviews mentioned it I assumed it had been fixed in the two years since it was washed out in 2016. It's still a worthwhile hike and you'll still have access to both castles. I saw evidence of people going around the "trail closed" sign, but I didn't feel comfortable trying that since I was hiking alone and don't really speak German. Also, it took me a minute to figure out that none of the signs say "Baumgeister". It's clearly labelled, but it's called the "Rundtour" or Round Tour. If you follow the signs for Burg Rheinstein you'll be on the right track. These are probably things known to all locals, I just wanted to let fellow foreigners know.
For the trail itself, 90% of it was fairly easy. It's mostly level and well-maintained trails. There's a little bit of climbing down-to and up-from the castle(s), but it's nothing too daunting.

Really a great trail. Almost completely shaded for the entire hike. There are plenty of intersections and although the trail is well marked I would recommend downloading the map prior to making the whole loop. The castle is worth the small fee (5.50) to visit. Also some neat small waterfalls along the creek back up after the castle not mentioned above.

Prachtige wandeling en heerlijk geluncht halverwege de route. Echte aanrader.

very scenic, the old tower against the new tower architecture is outstanding.

Beautiful trail. Most of it runs parallel to a stream, and there are even a few places to stop along the way for a picnic lunch or a sit down restaurant. It was raining when I went, so if it's the same for your trip, be prepare with hardy boots!

This trail is not for the faint of heart as it challenges your endurance. It's rated moderate but I give it moderate/hard rating. There are awesome views of Lake Tegernsee and the Swiss alps. Even had some snow cover on the mountains to the left in June. There's definitely a payoff as you get close to to top as you pass cows out in a pasture and they have cowbells on which is music to your ears. The view at the top is stunning! Stopped in at the restaurant at the top for a celebratory beer and struedel! It took 1 1/2 hours to do the winter trail as there is a summer trail that's steeper but will cut off about 20 minutes. We enjoyed the ride down on the ski lift and got to witness a paraglider flying down the mountain we just hiked up. What a great way to connect with the area!

Nice place

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.
