An amazing hike with spectacular views of the Bavarian Alps and Kochelsee and Walchensee lakes. The trailhead is a yellow sign for the H5 trail from the parking lot. The trail travels through a forest to the peak of Heimgarten, where you can catch panoramic views and refreshments. From there, proceed to Herzogstand. The top of Herzogstand will be busy with people taking the cable car back down to the bottom.

There is an error in the description with respect to the meaning of the card. The journey is in the opposite direction. The description gives H5 then H1 then H2. I did only H5 to Heimgarten, the view at the top is exceptional. Note that the H1 part between Heimgarten and Herzogstand is indicated as reserved for experienced hikers.
