This ridge is absolutely gorgeous. Views to the north on the many lakes such as Ammer, Starnberger, Kochel, Staffel, Riegsee and the Osterseen. Southwards on the Caribbean-looking, turquoise Lake Walchensee and on all the mountains of the Alps ... Some delicacies in the form of Kraxelstellen offers the ridge as well. I was certainly not here for the last time! Dizziness, sure-footedness and suitable footwear are recommended!
Whoever comes here will be rewarded with a great view. Both on the lakes, as well as on the mountains and cities.
I can only agree, please be sturdy shoes and free from giddiness. I have attached some photos of the most difficult paths. In sum, feasible and rather slower, even if there are trail runners on the way. It's worth it.
For smaller children in my opinion less - not suitable.
5 years ago in September, I went for the first time on this tour. My start was the Walchensee further to the gorge about 1 hour. Continue to Heimgartenhütte about 3.5 hours. From there, the ridge path to Herzogstand. The way there is a narrow exposed trail. From the Herzogstandhaus I went down with the cable car.
Those who are not free from schnundling or sure-footed should avoid the ridge. What I especially noticed during my tour were tourists, who went by train to the Herzog booth, and then were on the ridge with flip flops (!!) or sandals! That is not how it works! Alone because one should be the role model for the little "young hikers"!
So please only sturdy shoes ...
This is next to the climb to the Jochberg the most beautiful tour in the region. However, we always go by train to the Herzogstand, then walk over the ridge to the home garden, return there, run back over the ridge and go down by train again. If you start with the first train, you will be at Walchensee at 3.30 pm, without having to go through the joints with your descendants.
