    The Marwees is located in the middle of the Alpstein and offers a beautiful panoramic view.

    The ridge of the Marwees is an alpine hiking trail (blue / white). You have to be sure-footed and free from giddiness. There are a few places where you have to scramble.

    Shortly below the Bogartenlücke on the side of the lake lies the path on the left to the ascent to the Marwees. At the crossroads at the Widderalpsattel the path leads to the Marwees.

    I myself needed because of my still a bit existing fear of heights a lot of overcoming to make this tightrope walk .... but since you have to focus on the way that went amazingly well. Especially the first time, I would definitely go only in dry weather, so that the way is not too slippery .... after that everyone can judge for themselves .....
    Especially the places where you have to scramble a little, are more of the trickier places. You have to look very good that every kick is sitting .... but there are always a bit wider places, so that you can enjoy just the fantastic view.

    The wooden bench that stands at the top of the summit cross was made especially for this purpose and in a group of about 20 people the mountain rescuers carried by hand .... to Seealpsee the bank was transported by car and then carried in heavy work, dragged, pulled. ..if she finally stands where she is now. A big thank you for that !!!

    The ridge path that leads across the Marwees is an alpine blue / white marked path, which in any case requires head for heights and surefootedness. Also, in such ways, the weather is always good mitzubeachten, in snow, wet, frozen ground, very strong wind, etc., such ways quickly become very delicate and a retreat in a sudden weather change can be difficult. On the way there are several short Kraxelstellen and also exposed areas, those places are not secured and therefore require really good surefootedness, because slipping on this way could have fatal consequences. Most of the time the ridge path is not extremely narrow and there are also some wider spots. The view on all sides is stunningly beautiful and very impressive and for vertigo-free hikers an absolute highlight!

    The tightrope walk over the Marwees is an absolute pleasure, the impressions and emotions that you have there are absolutely impressive and imposing. I will definitely walk this beautiful ridge in the Alpstein again and again, there are so many ways to walk from there, just wonderful.

    A stunning stretch. With the view, you almost have to force yourself to pay attention to the path while walking.
