    Anyone who has completed the 612 steps can choose between a rustic monastery brew or an oxygen tent

    The steps are quite strenuous, but you will be rewarded with a great view on the Klosterberg.

    612 stone steps lead from Großheubach to Engelberg!
    These can also be avoided via a parallel serpentine path.

    The Klosterschänke is always worth a visit

    Engelberg Monastery is located high above Großheubach.
    We reached the Engelberg via a staircase with a total of 612 steps, the so-called "Engelstaffeln". According to legend, angels carried the building material up there. This path leads past six chapels from the 17th century.
    The longest external monastery staircase in Bavaria.
