    The last meters up to the summit lead along wire ropes. Those who are free from giddiness and sure-footed will not have any problems here. Unfortunately, this does not apply to many "cable car tourists" who still want to reach the summit and endanger themselves and others. With sandals or flip flops you have nothing up here!

    Although the ascent is not difficult and is made easier by wire ropes, nevertheless you should be free from giddiness and sure-footed!

    Who was not on the Tegelberg, Germany has not seen! Attention! Do not forget to breathe! You want to stand for hours behind every bend in the path and soak up the beauty of nature.

    The way up here can already be exhausting: Great way, but it also has a lot in it. One can partly dodge on the slightly flatter ski trail, which extends the route a bit. But at the end of a steep climb where you have to climb a few stairs. Condition, strength and sure-footedness should be present. Good footwear with a grippy sole should be a matter of course in the mountains. But it is NOT a via ferrata to the mountain station! If you want to travel comfortably and quickly, you can take the cable car, but you can also escape many miracle tragedies!

    I did not make it to the summit, because I'm not completely free from giddiness! But even 30 meters below the summit offers a great view of the mountains of the Alps!

    The Tegelberg massif begins in the west on the Pöllat, which flows under the Marienbrücke and then passes close to Neuschwanstein Castle. Its ridge rises steeply from there to the east to 1,455 m; There are some peaks and pinnacles in this area. A little further east, the ridge on the Tegelbergkopf rises to 1,587 m. About a kilometer further east lie on the ridge the Tegelberghaus and the mountain station of the Tegelbergbahn.

    North of the described ridge lies the striking battlements of the 1645 m high Torkopf and the Gelbe Wandschrofen. In between stands the middle pillar of the mountain railway. The elevation east of the valley station is called Hornburg, is 1172 m high and almost completely wooded.

    Unfortunately, the path at the beginning is very touristy and very well developed. The last ascent to the summit is all the more beautiful and almost resembles a via ferrata.

    Beautiful climb, which is good to create. At one point the rope is a bit loose, but that is not tragic.
