July 11, 2020
The Wendelstein is an Eldorado for those interested in geology and a prime example of visible earth history. That's why you can experience a journey through time on the popular summit and panorama trail on display boards and at adventure stations. The geological features on the Wendelstein and the history of the region are clearly illustrated.The starting point of the circular hike is the mountain station at 1,724 meters, where the cog railway and cable car from two different valley locations meet. From Osterhofen you take the cable car and from Brannenburg take the train up to the mountain. You walk clockwise past the broadcasting building of the Bavarian Radio and climb in serpentines to the summit. The ascent is characterized not only by fantastic views, but also by interesting display boards.Once at the top, a unique panorama, a summit cross and the university observatory await you. From the highest point of the hike at 1,838 meters, the route continues on partly narrow and secured paths towards the eastern summit. Adventure stations such as the trough couch, the stone sliding area and the walkable weather hole illustrate the geological connections.With a view of Lake Chiemsee and Chiemgau you get back to the mountain station, where you can take a detour to the striking Wendelsteinkircherl. A delicious snack and a cool beer are served on the large terrace of the Wendelsteinhaus.
