Best Hikes to Wendelstein
  • When the weather is good, the view from the Wendelstein is simply fabulous. The paths are well developed and suitable for all age groups. The inn has salty prices, but the operation of the cable car probably justifies it. It's still worth staying here and enjoying your pint in the mountain sun!

  • The path from Bad Feilnbach to the Wendelstein is very beautiful. It leads through a small gorge with waterfalls, there are some alpine pastures on the way and challenging climbs to cope.

  • The Wendelstein is pretty crowded, but still a classic that you should have been on.

    Personally, I prefer less developed peaks, but the Wendelstein is and will remain a classic.

  • The small Wendelinkapelle is located right at the top of the Wendelstein. It was built in 1718 by a Bavarian farmer out of gratitude for finding his steeds lost in the fog.

  • Still a beautiful panoramic mountain, but overcrowded. It's best to start very early in summer

  • Very crowded, a lot of "non-hikers" with the wrong shoes on the way. Mostly single file to the summit….

  • Unfortunately it was cloudy and blessed our visit. Nice climb on the way to the summit cross. Sturdy shoes recommended.

  • If you take the cog railway to the Wendelstein, this is also possible for wheelchair users. The viewing platform is also wheelchair accessible.

  • Full, full, Wendelstein ;-)
    It is (unfortunately) still one of the "mandatory mountains". Probably a little less frequented from the east (Sudelfeld) than from the west (Bayrischzell).

  • Of course, you are not alone on a summit with a cable car :-) But the way up on foot is always worth it - you are not alone here either, but at least there are far fewer hikers on the way. From the summit you have (if not overcast) a great view.
