Tour Details

This hiking vacation in Bavaria is a self-guided hike and is graded as a level 2. One name, one symbol; Zugspitze which belongs to the best-known summits of the Alps and can be quite easily climbed by cable car. This is why we have chosen to walk around the Zugspitze (highest peak of the Wetterstein Mountains), viewing it from different angles and exploring beautiful hiking territory. The adventurous and sensational crossing of gorges, thundering waters leaving unforgettable impressions. Idyllic alpine pastures and traditional “Brotzeit” to sustain yourself during the hike are inseparable aspects of this hiking tour.

This easy to moderate walking holiday has many great highlights, including scenic views to the rugged summits of Wetterstein Massif, idyllic mountain villages, excellent cuisine and typical Tyrolean Bavarian charm. You definitely won’t want to miss out on hiking in Bavaria surrounded by the Bavarian Alps!

On both sides of Wetterstein Massif you find pretty places for tranquil nights. This is a varied walking tour in Germany, and requires good basic stamina. You walk on well-kept hiking paths and partly on forest roads. Any considerable changes in altitude are covered by transfers or cable car. Daily walking times of a maximum of 5 comfortable hours.
