Best Hikes to Einstein
  • The Einstein is separated by deep cuts from its neighboring mountains. This reveals a fantastic view over the surrounding peaks and valleys.

  • Nice half day tour, but not crunchy. Great panoramic mountain, as it is in a secluded location.
    Tannheim's local mountain. Well attended, but not overcrowded, as there is no gondola lift to the summit and there are only refreshments in the valley.
    Ascent from Tannheim OT Berg consistently steep, almost straight up the mountain. Also easy climbing in the summit area. The prospect makes up for the effort several times over.

  • A great tour with a beautiful view. The mountain is well attended, but not overcrowded. There is always space at the summit for the coming hikers. The tour is feasible for children.

  • 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.

  • Great tour. Whether it's trail running or hiking, pure joy is guaranteed on this tour. Great climb. The last few meters are a bit to scramble. Above you have a gigantic (if the weather is good) Rundschau because the Einstein stands alone and you can marvel at the beautiful mountain scenery 👍

  • Nice summit!
    From the south of the Tannheimer Valley and from the north of the Achtal very nice to reach. No refreshments ... ;-)

  • Keeping a long story short. Perfect for a half day tour. But quickly snow-free even in spring.

  • Not too difficult to hike / climb - nevertheless a fine view over almost the entire Tannheimer Valley as well as over the Allgäu - on a clear day even as far as the Swabian Alb

  • Hi. I climbed Einstein vom Achtal Pfronten (almost to the summit, because of bad weather) and climbed from Tannheim OT Burg. I would like to recommend the Einstein from Tannheim to commit because here the rise and the view in my opinion is more diverse. Contrary to other comments here I would like to contradict that it would be a simple entry-level tour for children. Alone because of the persistent slope. Arrived at the top of the Einstein you will be rewarded with a magnificent panoramic view. The summit cross is currently absent due to storm.

  • High steps and light scree. Sticks are recommended but the view is very worthwhile!

  • I've been to the Einstein twice now and I'm already wondering how this tour can be called an introductory tour for smaller kids. Since it is constantly going uphill, a child's stamina is more of a strain than it is fun. And I also wonder how a normal hiker is supposed to manage the ascent/descent in 3 hours? It took me 2 1/2 hours uphill and 2 hours downhill each time. I certainly didn't dawdle, and the others who were there weren't much faster either. But it is still a great tour with a magnificent view, where the ascent is always worthwhile.

  • A summit that is fun. It's also good to do when there's already some snow.
    Great view of the Tannheimer Tal. Definitely worth a tour.
