February 28, 2019
In the Zugspitz region, this stage is designated as a hike (easy tour).The ninth stage starts at the small station of Grainau and leads you first through a pretty little forest directly to the Loisach. You follow their course for a few kilometers until the route branches off at a trail parking lot from the valley.You leave the turbulent valley behind and ascend into another world: Through beautiful mountain forest, the path leads you now well-developed steadily uphill, the view is better with every step. Soon the mighty Zugspitze emerges behind you and the rocks of the Rauhenstein come into view.Shortly after a striking fork in the path, you have already reached the highest point of today's stage in a picturesque clearing. From now on, the path drops steadily and moderately and gives you time to explore the wide valley between Kienjoch and Friederspitz.Again and again you cross small streams or catch new perspectives on the surrounding mountains at the glades. Soon you will reach the pristine stream bed of the Elmaubach. You cross the rocky creek bed and shortly thereafter you meet the driveway in the direction of Linderhof Castle. You follow the road and after just under three kilometers you reach the destination of today's stage at the magnificent castle. Of course you will not stay overnight in the castle, but in the adjacent castle hotel.
