December 16, 2020
Are you looking for a dissolute day tour with crystal clear lake water, rushing streams and a dream panorama? Then lace up your hiking boots and set out on this circular hike, on which you will take Big Rachel and Lake Rachel with you.You can reach the starting point by bus at the Racheldiensthütte stop. You will also find a parking space here if you are traveling by car. And the way leads you straight up. After about half the altitude difference you will reach the picturesque Rachelsee, one of the few cirque lakes in the Bavarian Forest. It was created by glacier movements and meltwater during the last ice age.On the shore you will soon come across the Kapellensteig, which will bring you up to the summit of the Großer Rachel. Once you have savored the dream panorama with all your senses, the path leads you past the Waldschmidthaus, which entices you to take a well-deserved break in the summer season. It continues with incomparably promising views, but now steadily downhill.At the Lieslbrunn you can refill your water bottle with clear, cool spring water, then you slowly walk over bubbling streams back to the plain and back to the starting point of the round.
