he route through the Reintal is the easiest route to the Zugspitze, but also one of the longest. He cleverly uses the “weak points” of the mountain and approaches it in a wide arc: first from the north, then from the east, and finally - after a wonderful hike - from the south over steep crags and rocks to reach the summit.The ascent begins with a bang: with the gigantic Partnach Gorge. You are well advised to have your rain jacket close at hand for the foaming spray that patters down the gloomy rock walls. After half an hour of looking and marveling, you suddenly step into the glistening sunlight after one last tunnel.The Partnach becomes a lovely river again, lazily babbling along. Without any noteworthy incline, it goes from the exit of the gorge on wide paths and forest roads. The first place to stay, the Bockhütte, located 1052 meters above sea level, can be reached after a good three hours.A little later the path narrows to a narrow path, and until a few years ago you came across the legendary "Blue Gump", one of the most beautiful places in the entire Wetterstein Mountains. In the summer of 2005, however, the heavy rainfall and the associated mudslides led to the "blue pools" having disappeared forever.The day's destination is soon reached, the idyllic Reintalangerhütte at an altitude of 1369 meters. A large part of the route has already been covered here, but only a good quarter of the difference in altitude between valley and summit.Detailed further information:bergsteiger.de/touren/wandern/durchs-reintal-auf-die-zugspitze
