Gäbe es 6 oder mehr Stern, ich würde sie alle geben. Jedes Mal wen ich dort bin muss ich diese Wanderung machen. Oben am Schäfchen angekommen wartet die absolut leckerste Gulaschsuppe der Welt. Dazu nö h die Aussicht da fühlt man sich wie im Himmel.

What a wonderful hike. The elevation gain is normal for the Bavarian Alps, but the trail is long (both ways combined 16 miles) meaning that the trail is rarely steep but just steadily uphill throughout. While I read a lot before about how most of the hike is super boring, I had a very different experience: there were so many beautiful views, the highlights being the Wettersteinalm at the midway point, the views of Garmisch-Partenkirchen around 3/4th in, and then particularly the views on Alpspitze, which from this perspective looks very different. Make sure at the end to go a little further uphill after Schachenhaus to get amazing views on the Reintal, the Zugspitz Plateau, and Alpspitze once more. Overall it took me a little less than 5 hours (2.5 hours up, 30-minute stop at the top, 1.40h down, and another 20 minutes or so at the Wettersteinalm). Would highly recommend!

First to Review

While the trail is almost entirely uphill, the footwork is super easy (it’s basically a gravel road the entire way). The views are beautiful the entire way. This is a must on a beautiful day.
