    The Schachenhaus lies in 1867 meters height below the royal house at the Schachen. The cozy hut is managed throughout the summer and offers food from the farm's own and regional products. In addition, you can stay here, blankets are available, you do not have to bring anything. The next morning a delicious breakfast is waiting for you, the view of the surrounding mountains is free as soon as the sun has risen. To be expected, it is advisable to book in advance. Info:

    The Schachenhaus (1866 meters) is a mountain hut in the Wetterstein Mountains directly at the royal house on Schachen. Farmed alp with local products. We recommend.

    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 royal castle is worth the trip. Guided tours take place at regular intervals.

    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).
