Bike & Hike to Schachen! By mountain bike from Mittenwald to Wettersteinalm and from there via Schachentorsteig to Schachen. With the e-mountain bike even for not so good cyclists feasible, the increase is partially strong and the 300 W battery in full use up to the Wettersteinalm reaches its limits. E-Bike Can be rented at the Bike Station in Mittenwald (better preorder).

The forest road from Elmau past the Wettersteinalm up to the Schachen draws considerably. In the meantime countless mountain bikers with and without e-drive can be seen on this route on beautiful days. You can also combine hiking and biking as we cycle the boring Hatsch to the Wettersteinalm (continuous 4-8% gradient) and from there take the varied climb over the Schachentor. We did it as a 2-day trip, stayed in the Schachenhaus, enjoyed the sunrise and looked at the Alpine garden in peace. After the descent or the descent to the refreshing bath and lunch at the Ferchensee.
As an alternative, there is the ascent of Partenkirchen on the Partnachklamm Reintal and then up to Schachen.
From the royal house you should not miss the lookout pulpit King Ludwig II, which offers a fantastic view of the Reintal up to the Zugspitzplatt.

The tour from the Schanze over the Partnachalm, down to the exit of the Partnachklamm and over the Kälbersteig to the Schachenalm / Schachenhaus and on the way back through the Partnachklamm is really worth it! The Schachenalm is rewarded with a great café, cake or other delicacies.
Attention: Note the entry times of the Partnach Gorge on the way back!

2020 closed all the time during Corona!
The sight, when you walk towards the Schachenhaus on Königsweg, gives a shudder that this was only used as King Ludwig I's summer residence. Magnificent view and the house is enthroned in a phenomenal location by nothing.
Bring plenty of time and good physical condition for the ascent. I went up from Garmisch, it was ultimately 28.5km and a total time of 11 hours.
