    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!

    Very beautiful panoramic view of both the mountains and the Forggensee!

    Beautiful view both in the mountains from over the Forggensee :)

    Run as early as 9 o'clock at the summit. From there, the train is in operation and brings the people masses up.

    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!

    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.

    03.06.2019 - many roads were officially not opened because of the snow. Crow and high plate only on your own responsibility. Be sure to ask first.

    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.

    On the one hand the view of the Ostallgäu lake landscape can be enjoyed, on the other hand the Alpine foothills.
    The way to the Tegelberg can also be made via a via ferrata, as well as in the normal way.

    Sensational 360 degree view! When the weather is nice and clear, one of the most beautiful panoramic views in Germany, at least in my opinion.
