A detour to the summit cross of the Alpspitze is definitely worth it. From there you can see the Grüntensee. The best way to get to the summit cross is from the viewing platform via a narrow path. In any case, take a break at the summit cross and enjoy the magnificent view. Behind the summit cross is the descent over hill and dale, partly very steep.

Absolutely the Kappeler Alpe heading (nice, friendly staff, wonderful panoramic view of the Alps and the royal castles).
Unfortunately, I still miss a nice trail from the Kappeler Alpe to the middle station of the Alpspitzbahn (if you do not want to hike from the Kappeler Alpe into the valley).
