An article in a Munich district gazette from the previous WoE raved about the Breitenstein and the Breitensteinfensterl and also mentioned that the former is popular with visitors.But I really would not have thought that he is soooo popularly visited even on a Wednesday.The Breitenstein window was our declared goal, which we have not taken with us on the ascent so far.The ascent to the Kesselalm can either be made via a supply "road" or via various demanding and sometimes steep forest paths. We opted for the simple variant, because after the Kesselalm, up to the Breitenstein 1622m, things are going well.You will be rewarded for your efforts on the Breitenstein with a wonderful all-round view.Now it goes past the Bockstein 1575m, diagonally down to the optically very interesting Breitensteinfensterl 1350m.Here you can enjoy the peace and quiet and the beautiful view.Why the quiet, when so many people were around?Very easily. Because it's not that easy to get there.Now a word about the descent.We wanted to avoid the root and gravel path between Kesselalm and Breitenstein and decided on the route suggested by Komoot through the steep forest.For this, the district gazette has demanded not only surefootedness but also alpine experience (but no fear of heights).Unfortunately for us, I made a mistake at the start and, a little to the west of the route suggested by Komoot, we followed a trail that was sometimes difficult to perceive and that cannot even be found in Komoot (not even in the "other" hiking app).Therefore my recommendation, take a good look around below the Breitenstein window and do not follow my descent saved in Komoot.Summary:The Kesselalm is easy to reach.Those who love the challenge can continue to the Breitenstein and Breitensteinfensterl

The tour looks really good. Especially the view. But it's definitely not for my knees. It would go uphill, but downhill. 😩
You should write a hiking guide. Described clearly, you could become a hiking freak👍👍👍
Memories are awakened in me. The Breitenstein was often one of our entry tours in spring.
