There is a lot on offer at the Pflegersee: hiking parking lot; Mountain inn; Bathhouse with changing rooms, toilets, kiosk, bathing jetties and boat rental. A real insider tip among the bathing lakes of Garmisch-Partenkirchen! The lake with the mountain inn and the steep cliffs in the background is a postcard motif.

Free parking space. If you feel like it after the tour, you can take a dip in the lido or stop in the restaurant on the lake. Due to the lido, it is to be expected that the parking lot will be occupied early on nice days. There are a few alternative parking spaces on the road to Pflegeersee.
Those who shy away from the vertical meters to the Königsstand or just want to take a short tour between two showers can switch to the Prälatensteig. The Prälatensteig is not particularly spectacular and apparently not so much used. Anyone entering the Prälatensteig from the north may therefore have to play a little scouting before the single trail is found.
The climb does not lead as close to the rock walls as hoped, there is basically only one point that reaches the Seles walls, everything else runs a few meters below the walls through the forest. There are some nice views of the valley, Farchant and the Kuhflucht waterfalls.
The climb itself is very narrow and, apart from a few places, not particularly demanding. But you should be sure-footed. The slope has a lot of inclination, missteps could lead to uncomfortable balls in some places, but a steep fall is not to be expected. However, some longer passages lead through thick, knee-high grass. Those who are out and about after rainy days have to expect wet pants down to the knee or wear rainproof pants. We did not come across ticks on the Prälatensteig, but maybe we were just lucky :-)

A lovely cafe next to the lake. You have a stunning view of the Konigstand stands in front of the lake. The cafe serves food and beverage. There is a parking lot 5 min walk from the cafe. The lake is a starting point of many hiking trails. Good place to stop after your day.

Very nice restaurant where you can stop after a hike or before. You should only consider that the kitchen closes at 5 p.m. and you can no longer get warm meals, it is then completely closed at 6 p.m. We shared the Kaiserschmarrn for two and we can highly recommend it!!! Meeeeeeeee tasty!!!
