Tips

  • Melanie

    I was initially confused about the indications of the difficulty of this ridge. On the one hand "only for experienced", "difficult" on the other hand "not dangerous", ...
    my conclusion: for me it was the first time on a ridge and a great experience. You shouldn't have a problem with height and you should be able to "climb" a bit, but ropes were attached to unwieldy places to hold on. Surefootedness is required but it is not particularly dangerous. Definitely recommended for the adventurous.

  • Fantastically beautiful insights and insights ...! A beautiful round tour, which is only recommended outside of the season, as very busy.

  • It is always great to walk this ridge path! You have the whole way over a great view to the south and north and the way is very varied, never boring.

  • Wonderful views on the ridge (but always on the way, it goes on both sides far down). At tricky places there's a steel rope. Unfortunately quite overcrowded.

  • Walk the ridge from the home garden, as less is going on.

  • Certainly one of the most beautiful routes in Munich's local mountains with all kinds of views in all directions (Walchenseee & Kochelsee, Karwendel & Rofan, up to the Wetterstein Mountains, with good visibility over Lake Starnberg and to Munich). Due to the easy access with the Herzogstandbahn, there is a lot of hustle and bustle here - you have to like it or ignore it. The difficulties are limited. Exposed passages are secured, there is no real scrambling.

  • Beautiful tour from Heimgarten to the Herzogstand over the ridge.
    You should definitely wear sturdy shoes and be sure-footed.
    On the WE, the Herzogstand is unfortunately quite overcrowded.

  • Very nice ridge crossing to the Heimgarten. Or the other way around, Heimgarten - Herzogstand. You should definitely be sure-footed and sturdy shoes.

  • A magnet for many tourists.
    Please note.
    The best times are still early in the morning or when the cable car is being overhauled

  • Beautiful ridge. Not difficult, but you should be sure-footed. Wire ropes are installed in some places, but it's not dangerous.

  • Tip from a layperson with a fear of heights (but who likes to face it): The ridge is not a Sunday walk, if you are not free from giddiness, you often get a bad feeling and wish for more ropes in some places. There are also some places where you have to climb or help with your hands.

  • Go early! So really early ...
    From Ohlstadt up to Heimgarten, then over to the Herzogstand and then down on the old Pionierweg to Schlehdorf: suddenly there is no soul here.
    Warning: on nice days the ridge is full as in the pedestrian zone. Also a bit "airy exposed" in some places
