    Fabulous all-round view! The Einstein stands alone so that opens up to all directions a beautiful panoramic view. The way leads best from Tannheim, branch mountain (fee parking directly on the main road) to the summit. Weather permitting, you'll have a sensational sunrise on the Einstein!

    Refreshments are only in the valley.

    The Einstein is a mountain in the north of the Tannheimer valley. It rises above the village Tannheim in Tyrol. The "on" in the name of the mountain stands for the secluded location of the mountain, which is separated from the neighboring elevations by deeply cut valleys (Vilstal and Engetal) and a shallow valley watershed. The strikingly square summit soars high above its satellites. "Stone" indicates the rocky summit of limestone, which is 1866 meters above sea level. A. reached. Heinz Groth describes Einstein as the "local mountain of Tannheim". The mound height of the Einstein is 718 m, its dominance 3.5 km, with Kellenspitze and Aggenstein are the reference mountains.
    The hike up the Einstein, on which a narrow path leads, promises a good all-round view of the other Tannheimer mountains and the Allgäu Alps: to the north, the eastern Alpine foothills to see in the east you can see the Aggenstein and the western walls of the Zugspitze in the west the Wertacher Hörnle, in the south under other peaks the Gaishorn, the Rauhhorn and the Kugelhorn. Dieter Seibert speaks of a "summit summit".
    There are two different entrances to the summit: The southern route leads from Tannheim, the northern, also somewhat trickier, begins in the municipality of Pfronten, he passed then north of Grän, the state border between the German Free State of Bavaria and the Austrian province of Tyrol.
    The tour requires surefootedness and caution in the wet, because the flanks consist of steep Schrofen terrain.

    The Einstein is a mountain that can often be climbed very early in the year. The route coming from Berg runs southward and apert in the spring quickly.
    The tour up the Einstein is a half day tour. For the ascent and descent a pure walking time of approx. 180 minutes is required. The Einstein is particularly suitable as an entry-level tour for smaller children. Some simple kraps increase the fun factor for the kids.
    However, one should note that the Einstein is a very popular hiking destination, and it can be close at the summit ever.

    Through the valley, the path slowly but steadily leads steeply up to the summit. It is definitely necessary sure-footedness, good equipment and experience in alpine terrain. You should not underestimate the screeching sections that require increased attention when wet. In the upper part below the summit giddiness is also required. Otherwise, a great mountain view and you will be compensated by the small Kraxelei in the upper part for his efforts with an impressive panorama. The Gipfelkereuz is currently a cross raised by climbers from branches. The original cross will probably be repaired or completely renewed.

    The path to the Einstein is varied and interesting. It is definitely recommended sturdy footwear. The road is not the easiest but if you take your time and is a bit sure-footed, you can do well. Almost at the summit you have to walk a few meters over craggy rocks but then you will be rewarded with a fantastic view.

    really great mountain and a wonderful view.
    I meant to set a personal record here. Up and down together in under 2 hours, although I wasn't just 10 minutes upstairs.
    It works, but then had to happen for a few days 😭😭😭
    Next time I'll just enjoy it.

    The Einstein can be reached in a very short time from the Tannheimer Tal and offers a very nice view.
