    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

    Great view over the Chiemgau - Tip: with the cable car to the middle station and the last 500 vertical meters on foot to the summit -interessant way with alpine views. To stop then to the rustic summit house.

    From the summit you have a magnificent view of the Chiemsee.

    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.

    Easy to climb and the view is blocked by nothing. The nearby chapel is also very cute

    The most beautiful panoramic mountain in the Chiemgau Alps, highly recommended even in winter.

    Great view over the Chiemgau. Easy to reach thanks to the cable car. Nice mountain inn on the summit.

    On the one hand there is a wide view and on the other hand a beautiful backdrop with a chapel and Hochfellgnipfelkreuz

    From here, the view is just as beautiful as the summit cross but a little less busy

    An alternative route for hikers, but perhaps weakened nature lovers, begins at the Steinbergalm, from Ruhpolding to reach by car, parking EUR 2.
    From there to the middle station runs a beautiful and easy to walk forest road with very low gradients.

    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!
