      Fantastic round trip in Saltfjellet-Svartisen National Park! Four suspension bridges, numerous waterfalls, rustic forests, many huts for self-sufficiency, moors and even a field full of cloudberries. But where is not revealed 😜

      First we took the Isprins ferry across the Hollandsfjord. From the pier to the “Engabreen” tongue of the second largest Norwegian glacier, Svartisen, it's a relaxed 90 minutes. The panorama is breathtaking throughout. There are a few insurance policies on the mountain itself. Surefootedness and good footwear are essential. Our drive for the return trip is coming. Ahoy!

      We have been to beautiful Denmark countless times. In Skagen and Grenen, where the Baltic and the North Sea meet, but never before. Neat thing going on up here. Tourists flock to the top in droves. On the way there we pass baby seals that were parked on the beach by their parents so that they can go hunting.

      8:00 a.m. Knorrhütte
      9:00 Partnachquelle
      9:45 a.m. Reintalangerhütte
      11:00 Bockhütte
      13:45 Partnach Gorge
      14:30 Olympic ski jump Garmisch-Patenkirchen
      Conclusion: The descent over the Reintal was ultimately the right decision. The night at the Knorrhütte was short, the legs still tired from the previous day. Then the leisurely hike through the scenic Reintal came just right.
      Thanks to a cool couple that we got to know at the Knorrhütte and that accompanied us on the descent, the way back felt just half as long and twice as fun :-)

      5:00 alarm clock
      5:30 Start from the athletes' house
      6:00 breakfast at the bakery
      6:21 bus departure Rathaus Garmisch
      7:00 a.m. ascent at Eibsee
      11:00 Wiener-Neustädter Hütte: 1200HM in 4h
      30min break: wheat & quark cake
      11:30 Start of stop-puller Velcro climb; 700HM in 3h
      2 p.m. Zugspitze summit
      30min break
      14:30 glacier cable car to Zugspitzplatt
      2:45 p.m. descent over 900m east flank
      16:00 Knorrhütte
      Conclusion: A climb during the week is worthwhile. It's worth getting up early. We met about 10 people on the ascent from the Eibsee via the stopselzieger to the summit. The KS was in poor condition due to winter damage. Thanks to dry weather, it can be done without any major risk. Then culture shock at the top ;-) Not to imagine what has to be going on here on a corona-free weekend.
