    The Watzmann is also known as the guardian of the grail for clear, fresh drinking water. It is the landmark of the Berchtesgaden National Park.
    What many certainly do not know, the Watzmann once formed a vault with the Hochkalter, which was removed and reshaped by the glaciers of the "Würme Ice Age" - the Wimbachtal was created over the millennia.

    After leaving the east wall, the south summit beckons. Depending on your condition and weather, you can descend via Wimbachgries into the valley or cross over in the opposite direction via Mittelspitze, Hocheck and Watzmannhaus. Fantastic tour!

    Those who have made it to the southern tip can enjoy a unique view over the Berchtesgadener Land.
    But watch out, the descent is at least if not more dangerous than the ascent. Especially here you have to be in top physical condition and still fully concentrate up to the Wimbachgriss valley.

    The southern tip is the last of the three peaks when you come from the Watzmannhütte. But be careful, because now the no less dangerous and never-ending descent into the Wimbachtal begins. Full concentration on every step is required here.
