The Hochfelln is always worth a climb. Numerous paths lead you to this popular Chiemgau summit. Understandable that there is always something going on, because the view is wonderful. Before you lies the Chiemsee and behind you a sea of mountain peaks.
No matter which way you choose, rustic mountain pastures seduce you to sit and feast. Do not be tempted too soon, because you should not miss the summit view!
If time is short, you can use the Hochfellnbahn to shorten the ascent or descent. Information at: hochfelln-seilbahnen.de/startseite.html

The Chiemgau "Lookout Chest" is called the Hochfelln. Elsewhere on the edge of the Alps there are smaller, the pre-Alps, in front of the first higher mountains. Not so here at the foot of Hochfelln. To the north, the smooth Bavarian plain extends for more than a hundred kilometers. A few boulders have left behind the huge glacier, which stretched down into the valley here in the last ice age, nothing else. Every attempt of a foothill of the Alps was flattened. Up to 300 meters thick here was the tank of the glacier in the ice age. When he melted, the Ur-Chiemsee was created. So much meltwater accumulated that the lake was more than twice as big as today's excursion paradise. That was a few thousand years ago. Seen historically a few moments ago.

We first took the cable car from the middle station to the summit. At the top you have a wonderful 360 degree panorama. On one side the Chiemsee and on the other the mountains.
Then we descended to the middle station. Duration approx. 11 / 2h. Was also very nice.
For me the most beautiful day!

The Hochfelln was one of my first mountains that I climbed.
At first it is very easy to walk, has wide paths that are used as ski slopes in winter, a few narrower passages and some next to three train stations (valley, middle and mountain)
No matter which Alm you choose, it is always wonderful and, above all, delicious!In winter or when it is slippery, caution is advised as the path from the middle station becomes difficult. Walking on ice is just not nice. Then it's better to go up the mountain from the middle station.The view is amazing. Chiemsee and "Flachland" on the one hand and mountain views to the Central Alps on the other.Always a highlight for young and old.The snack platter at the summit is highly recommended!

It was a really nice tour, the path was along a small stream all the time. From the middle station, it was almost all the time in front of the mountain, over very varied paths, up to the summit cross. The way back, made my daughter, my son-in-law and our dog on foot to the starting point, I went with the cable car, because my knee downhill unfortunately does not like. In any case, it was a very worthwhile tour, with great views.
