    The Gatterl is a worth seeing border crossing between Germany and Austria with a great view of the Reintal, the Zugspitze and the surrounding mountain ranges. The path from the German side is bare, full of scree and leads to the Knorrhütte. In the Austrian direction comes after a short climb a landscape of green mountain slopes in which many small streams spring. Both sides as well as the Gatterl are absolutely recommendable!

    The so-called "Gatterl" is located on a gap (2024 m above sea level) in the Wetterstein ridge between the Gatterlköpfen and the Hochwanner and is at the same time the border between Germany and Austria.

    Between the mountain station of the Ehrwalder Almbahn and the Knorrhütte this is clearly the route highlight - and also good to master with climbing dog;)

    If you come up from Ehrwald you are used to green slopes and beautiful views. From here, there is almost only the scree

    The Gatterl, after which the tour to the Zugspitze is also named, is the border between Austria and Germany. Here you walk from Ehrwald on the way to the Knorrhütte from Austria to Germany. There is also a really great view of the Reintal. From here we had our goal in view for the first time, the Zugspitze.

    in front of the Gatterl a bit climbing climb, but then the reward: View to Germany in a completely different valley.

    ... can only recommend the use of hiking sticks before and after the Gatterl for hikers with a little less experience
