Hiking paradise Lenggries

Hiking Collection by
Tourismus Lenggries

If you search for a hut to hut hike with your children or a real peak adventure, Lenggries offers you plenty of hiking paths for every type of hiking. A mountain experience for everyone. The Isartal, the so called “Gate to the Karwendel” has a lot of wonderful and less known highlight spots for adventurers. The nature around Lenggries is a especially diverse hiking region. The highest peak with 2106 meter is the “Schafreuter” in the Karwendel. On the lower home mountain of Lenngries, the Brauneck, you get extraordinary views and plenty of quaint alpine huts. A real gem of the region is the high route on the Brauneck. Many hikers say it's their most loved tour in the region.

Wether you choose a long and tough track around and above high peaks or easy and wonderful family hikes, the region offers it all. Especially for families with little children Lenggries offers a couple of short and easy alpine hut hikes. Just watch the cows grass around the huts and enjoy a traditional Bavarian on a terrace in the sun.

    A classic and mountain hike belongs in the Bavarian Prealps. The summit panorama is unparalleled and a visit to the nice Lenggrieser Hütte make this mountain experience an all-round successful tour, which is very popular not only with locals but also with guests.

    The circumnavigation of the Hirschbachtal leads you almost exclusively over the ridges and ridges of the surrounding peaks. At 21 kilometers, it is already a monster tour, which is definitely only recommended to trained hikers and in good weather. However, you can not get more panorama in the foothills of the Alps. The view gets better from peak to peak.The wooded Geierstein with a view over the Isar Valley, the Fockenstein with its Tegernsee Panorama, the Spitzkampen with the view towards Guffert and Karwendel and finally the Seekarkreuz with its fulminant view, reward any effort along the way. On the descent, you have more than earned your return to the Lenggrieser Hütte and can truly call you a summiteer.

    This beautiful hike is partly on the sunny side. It goes briskly up past alpine meadows and past huts, right in the middle of the Brauneck ski area. Of course you can do it comfortably - like many others - and get on the gondola. But with a hike uphill is the wonderful summit view of the Karwendel and the Wettersteingebirge all the more reward for the effort.The round is well signposted and often follows the track - but good shoes are an absolute must not to slip on the gravel. And one should not forget to turn around again and again and to enjoy the view. There is a bank on the way, of course, just right.

    From the parking lot it goes over the Maria Anna way to Hohenburg. Here once stood a medieval fortress, of which today, however, only sparse remains of the wall are available. Instead, a castle was built in the 18th century, which today houses schools.Then it's easy on forest roads through the Hirschbachtal up to the saddle up. Here it goes to the left to the Aueralm, first woody and then over a moor. From there you reach the broad valley through the Söllbachtal down to Bad Wiessee.From here, the best way is by boat to the other side of the Tegernsee into the Tegernseer Bräustüberl and later comfortably by train back to Lenggries.

    The best comes last! The best point is probably not the highest for this tour, because the summit of the summit is completely wooded and thus gives no panorama. The hike on the little-visited peaks through the wonderful, enchanted forests, on shady paths is still worthwhile. On the descent you should visit the mountain inn Denkalm. Here you can enjoy the well-earned view to the Karwendel while eating the delicious Kaiserschmarrns.

    The hike to the Geierstein is crisp, it goes quite steeply up through the forest. Of course you can enjoy the best view at the summit. The tour is especially recommended in the early morning and late afternoon in good weather.

    This hike starts at the Wanderparkplatz in the Rißtal, which you reach from Lenggries, behind the Sylvensteinspeichersee, towards Vorderriß and Hinterriß. The walk on the Schafreuter leads you across wide, partly steep, forest roads, small meadow paths and a trail. The summit and the views are just great. The descent from the summit to the Tölzer Hütte is a bit more demanding than the ascent, so here are short rocky passages secured with wire rope. Dizziness and surefootedness are absolutely recommendable for this, more than rewarding, round trip.

    On the Reiseralm you can enjoy the beautiful view of Lenggries and the mountains in the east of the Isar Valley. One goes from Lenggries over the Isarbrücke to the Brauneckbahn valley station. Here start two variants: a) over the restaurant Jaegers in serpentines directly to the Reiseralm or b) already before the forest road left past the mountain railway, slightly uphill along the stream to the hut, which is farmed all year round.

    Pure dream background: This hike to the Hochalm leads us to the panoramic terrace of the Alps on the Achenpass and on lonely paths to hidden bathing places.You cross the main road and follow the signpost to Hochalm. The path is marked with a red dot and leads past the Stuben-Alm. At the height of the Mitterer Alm you come to a fork and wander up to the dilapidated Hochalm. Now it is only a few meters to the summit peak of the Hochalm.You can expect a meadow summit with impressive panoramic views, for example, the Benediktenwand, in the valley to the towns of Lenggries and Bad Tölz, in the Blauberge, Guffert and far into the Hohe Tauern with the Grossglockner and Rofan, in the Karwendelgebirge and the Zugspitze. On the descent, it first goes back to Mitterer Alm. Behind the hut, the path continues to a forest road that brings you to Glashütte.You cross these and stay on the narrow path, which continues directly on the other side. So you come to the bathing places on the Grossweißache. From here it is only a few meters to Glashütte. There you turn right behind the fire station and walk on the footpath back to Stuben.
