Description
Waypoints (0)

Beliebter Rundweg in der Zugspitzregion, Bayern Diese landschaftlich großartige Tour durch die Höllentalklamm über das Hupfleitenjoch zum Kreuzeck ist ein unbedingtes Muss für jeden Bergwanderer. Insbesondere die Aussicht auf Zugspitze und Waxenstein vom Kreuzeck ist wahrlich traumhaft. Beim Abstieg vom Kreuzeck kann man ganz entspannt den Ausblick auf die imposante Kulisse des gesamten Höllentals genießen. Die Höllentalklamm ist nur während der schneefreien Monate begehbar, da im Winter im gesamten Höllental eine erhöhte Lawinengefahr herrscht und Brücken und Stege abgebaut werden. Achtung: Der Parkplatz an diesem Ausgangspunkt füllt sich schnell und man benötigt Münzen für die Parkautomaten. Highlights der Wanderung: - Höllental und Höllentalklamm - verlassene Bergwerkstollen - Ruine eines alten Elektrizitätswerks - Ausblicke auf die Zugspitze

Way up was great and divers! The way back down from Kreuzeck is boring and pretty steep. Not a lot of fun. Overall an absolute great hike

Wir sind von Kreuzeck zur Höllentalalm und weiter über die Klamm gewandert und fanden den Weg zeitweise sehr anspruchsvoll, aber dafür absolut spektakulär! Eine fantastische Tour, allerdings nur mit richtigen Ausrüstung und Stöcken zu empfehlen

Make sure you do the walk counter clockwise, because on the way up to the gorge the stones are very slippery. You wouldn’t want that coming down.

HikingGreat!

Beautiful and difficult trail. Parking at p2 Hammersbach was a good location but time consuming (there was a 30 min line for the single payment machine). The start to the hike was closed off (as a previous reviewer indicated), but just follow signs (and everyone else) to the gorge. It’s well-marked. Once there- it’s amazing! As others have written, make sure to bring a rain jacket even on good weather days. The second half of the hike after the gorge becomes much more intense- a serious hike uphill and along some cliff edges. I wouldn’t recommend it on a rainy day / if you are afraid of heights. As others here have indicated, there is a cable car at the top of Kreuzeck (4.5 hours / 7.5 miles in) which you can take to the bottom. Then you still have a 25 min walk back to your car.

Hard and challenging trail, but really worth it. The best hike I have tried in the area. We parked in P2 Hammersbach (remember coins for the parking ticket - the machine would not accept our international payment card) and walked to the Höllental klamm. Right now some of the way is blocked, but an alternative way is shown on signs and is easy to follow. Bring a (rain)jacket for the klamm. It is wett even on sunny days. We took the kreuzeck cable car down from the kreuzeck hause.

Fantastic trail. Breathtaking views. Remember a rain resitant jacket for the klamm. We took the kreuzekbahn down to the valley instead of walking down. There are three restaurants near the top at the kreuzekbahn to reward yourself after going uphill. Good shoes are required because the trail is very rocky.

First to Review

Favorite hike of all time to date. Extremely rigorous and tough - absolutely breath taking, literally and metaphorically. It felt like we went through so many different landscapes and ecosystems in this one hike. Icy at some points. Bring a rain jacket for the falls, layers for the varying climates, and a good beer to enjoy the view of Garmisch from the top!
