      Grandiose Tour um erste alpine Erfahrungen zu sammeln, ein wenig Schwindelfreiheit vorausgesetzt. Feste Schuhe mit gutem Profil und ausreichend Wasser dringend empfohlen, Regenjacke für die Klamm.
      Auch für ambitionierte Kinder (ab 10 Jahren) geeignet wenn die Eltern bereits Bergerfahrung haben.
      Sensationelle Aussichten, teils spannende und zum Schluss entspannende Wege.
      Die angegebene Gehzeit von 4:45 kann man gerade mit Kindern verdoppeln, da es immer wieder viel zu sehen gibt.
      Zu Beginn die Seilbahnfahrt.
      In der Seilbahn steht man dicht an dicht, wie in der U-Bahn im Berufsverkehr. In einer Unterhaltung mit einem Angestellten der Bahn erzählt er mir, dass die Gondel wegen Corona mit 42 Personen nur mit der Hälfte der Passagiere fährt.
      Er erzählt mir auch, dass morgens die ersten Fahrten besonders voll, später ab 11:00 Uhr dann schon leerer sind.
      An der Bergstation, rund um das Restaurant ist mächtig viel los. Sogar Kinderwagen werden hier die geschotterten Wege entlang geschoben.
      Auf dem AlpspiX muss man das erste Mal schwindelfrei sein. Völlig ungefährlich, aber man läuft auf einem Gitterrost über den Abgrund. Nicht nur für Kinder ein tolles Erlebnis.
      Noch eine kleine Runde über den Osterfeldkopf und dann kann die eigentliche Tour los gehen.
      Schon wenige Meter unterhalb der Bergstation ist deutlich weniger Betrieb. Was nicht heißt, dass es einsam wäre. Der gesamte Weg ist weit stärker frequentiert als erwartet.
      Der angelegte Weg führt durch teils bunte Wiesen mit einem schönen Blick über Garmisch, erst unter der Hochalmbahn, dann unter der Alpspitzbahn hindurch zum Hupfleitenjoch.
      An diesem links durch eine „Drehtür“, dann wird der Weg schon alpiner, jedoch noch nicht anspruchsvoll. Außer man geht ihn nach oben, denn es ist recht steil.
      Nachdem man durch eine Senke und auf der anderen Seite einen Sattel hinauf gestiegen ist eröffnet sich einem Bergneuling ein überwältigender Anblick auf die Berge, den bevorstehenden Weg durch das Massiv bis zu den Knappenhäusern und darüber hinaus bis zum Mariensprung (recht hoher Wasserfall) und einen ersten Einblick in die Höllentalklamm.
      Hier zücken einige ihre Kamera oder ihr Mobile für ein Foto.
      Zunächst geht es ein wenig steil bergab bis man den eigentlichen Steig erreicht. Er ist weite Teile mit Stahlseilen abgesichert, die jedoch (meist) nicht wirklich nötig sind. Unerfahrenen und Ängstlichen bieten sie eine psychologische Sicherheit.
      An zwei Stellen ist der Weg allerdings kurz ausgesetzt – da ist das Stahlseil dann doch nötig. Das sind die einzig wirklich „gefährlichen“ Stellen des Weges. Technisch nicht schwierig und auch ohne Klettererfahrung von den Allermeisten machbar, aber wer hier abrutscht braucht keine Reservierung mehr für das Abendessen. Kinder sollte man hier (für das eigene Gewissen) sichern. Entweder diese Stellen mit ihnen zusammen gehen, oder wie bei anderen gesehen mit Klettersteigset.
      Diese beiden Stellen kommen kurz hintereinander, danach ist der Weg bis zu den Knappenhäusern entspannt und bietet noch ein paar Highlights wie Felsüberhänge unter denen der Weg entlang führt.
      Die Knappenhäuser sind aktuell (Juli 2020) nicht bewirtschaftet, da es aber der erste Ort ist an dem man sich bequem z.B. auf Stufen setzen kann ist hier einiges los.Weiter geht es auf schmalem Pfad bergab, die ersten Bäume und Sträucher wachsen am Wegesrand. In einer Kurve kommt von oben ein Bach herunter und versickert vor dem Weg im Boden. Er verschwindet einfach.
      Es folgt eine leichte, ungefährliche Kletterstelle, dann beginnt ein Wurzelpfad hinab bis zur Höllentalangerhütte. Obwohl es noch recht weit ist, stellenweise kann man schon das Rauschen des Mariensprungs hören.
      An der Höllentalangerhütte ist wieder richtig viel los. Wanderer, Bergsteiger, die von der Zugspitze kommen und ein paar Familien, die durch die Klamm herauf gekommen sind. Bis zur Klamm ist es allerdings noch ein ganzes Stück, auf einem angelegten, teils breiten Schotterweg.Die Klamm ist ein großartiges Highlight für sich. Durch ein Unwetter wurde hier Anfang 2020 einiges an Weg zerstört und konnte bis Juli des selben Jahres noch nicht alles wieder hergestellt werden, ist aber immer noch ein echtes Erlebnis. Türkisblaues Wasser, dass durch die Schlucht schießt, überall tropft es von oben herunter. Selbst bei trockenem Wetter wird man hier nass.
      Unten angekommen muss man rückwirkend Eintritt bezahlen um wieder hinaus gelassen zu werden.
      Nach der Eingangshütte führt der Weg sehr entspannend durch den Wald entlang des Dr. Heinrich-Wegs nach unten. Vorbei an Gesteinsschichten, an denen man sieht, dass sie sich einmal auf dem Meeresboden befunden haben und an einem Brunnen, der Trinkwasserqualität haben soll (keine Garantie), über einen Teil des Weges „Sagenhafter Bergwald“ zu dem Ferienort Hammersbach. Nach Hammersbach auf einem asphaltierten Radweg, mit einem schönen Bergpanorama im Rücken zurück zum Parkplatz.Es könnte sein, dass mitgewanderte Kinder diese Nacht sehr gut schlafen und am Ende der Sommerferien in der Schule, trotz vieler weiterer Ausflüge, von nichts anderem als von diesem Tag erzählen.

      Easy, short hike, almost a walk with no significant gradients on mostly beautiful paths. Suitable for children.
      Lots of shade, some resting places and a few views.

      Great hike through two nature reserves with many highlights.
      Almost pure forest hike, after the first third mostly on natural paths and trails.
      Alternative routes are currently not possible for some sections of the route, as some parallel routes due to forest damage no longer exist in the OSM / Komoot maps.
      Komoot classification "difficult" can only be justified by the length and the climbs, the path conditions are "easy" to "medium". In the area of the White Wall and the Altkönig, sure-footedness cannot harm.
      With a little stamina, the given 5 hours including break are to be done.

      Nice, small tour around Eppenheim on mostly natural trails and paths.
      Mostly through the forest, some seating. High, water-repellent shoes are recommended for the section on the Silberbach.
      Suitable for children, only the somewhat longer, steady but moderate climbs could lead to resentment among the offspring.
      Start at a parking lot not marked as such. First uphill on a nice path, just a short stretch of paved path just before the Atzelberg.
      There is a barbecue area at the summit and the foundations of the former observation tower on the summit, which are extremely popular even in Corona times and despite the lack of a view.
      From Atzelberg it is a long way on beautiful paths and narrow paths, following the Schinderhannes-Steig down.
      If you leave the Schinderhannes-Steig on the left, there is a little more until you reach the bridge on the Silberbach. Here on the left on a narrow, slightly overgrown path. The following route to the next, barely perceptible bridge becomes adventurous. Overgrown, swampy, sometimes hardly any trail marks. If you don't want to do this, you can take the northern, comfortable path from the bridge. Or the southern Kramerweg. All paths reunite.
      At another bridge on a Marienbildstock there are several benches for a rest. From here on the unpaved path follows the sign "Trout" up the mountain. After a house, the ground changes and the trees shrink. On a paved path with a beautiful view, it continues until a narrow meadow path leads down to the right.
      Once in the forest, the natural path continues downwards to a slightly overgrown, short path that leads to the badger building, a rock in the forest.
      From the badger building, take the short path back, then up a dirt path to the outskirts of Eppenhain.
      A short stretch on asphalt to the Nickelskreuz, then slightly downhill on gravel.
      Then the last climb comes on a natural path and path to the Rossert hut. From this over the rocky summit and to a viewpoint with a bench.
      From here, always following the Schinderhannes-Steig, over narrow paths and beautiful paths, only interrupted by a short paved section, mostly downhill back to the parking lot.

      Nice tour of the old town of Palma with history (s) for children and fans of legends. Besides, a little culture and a few alleys that not every tourist walks through. Can be expanded to any number of places of worship worth seeing.
      If you tell the stories (see highlights) and if you go out to eat something on the way (just not at the sights!), You are with the children for half a day.
      If you want to include the cathedral (La Seu), you should run the tour in the opposite direction and start in the morning, so that the lighting mood inside comes into its own. And schedule two more hours.

      Nice little hike without great challenge with lots of distant views and some culture on mostly beautiful paths and paths, but also some road. Suitable for children. If you park above the village you save a bit of the road and about 500 m total distance, but you miss the old wash house. If you go around the mountain Puig de son Reus you can extend the round by 1 km.Start at the public parking lot in Randa opposite the church. The road to the east, then into Carrer de sa Font past the old wash house and the stone Creu de Randa. A few more meters of road to the parking lot from which the path leads slightly uphill parallel to the road. In the hairpin bend of the road over a wall crossing onto the road, which is left again in the following curve.
      At a scree field, despite the many footprints and Komoot's prompt to turn, do not go up to the right, but a few meters further to the signposted junction (the straight path ends in front of a closed gate).
      Now the path becomes narrower and steeper. After the mentioned scree field, which is now crossed, it is over for a long time with shadow. From here there are views over the south of the island for the first time. Continue uphill along narrow, partly (very) slightly overgrown paths. In October the red berries of the mastic bushes glow.
      Over another dry stone wall onto a wide gravel path. Here you can make a small detour to the left to Cova de Ramon Llull, which unfortunately was not accessible in October 2019. On the wide path up to the summit monastery, the Santuari de Cura. If the many other people don't bother you, you can take a break here at the rest area or on one of the walls with a beautiful view.
      From the Santuari a little on the road to a path that turns left onto a path. On this until you get to the street again. Here you get to the eastern edge of the mountain and you have a magnificent view of the eastern part of Mallorca. A short distance down the road, then another path along the cliff. If you carry gloomy thoughts with you, you can end them here once and for all, but you can also keep enough distance from the abyss at any time so that even those with a head for heights should not have any problems.
      A short stretch of road, a short stretch of path, then comes the longest and most uncomfortable stretch of road. But even that doesn't last five minutes. On a wide road a few minutes to the Sant Honorat monastery. In contrast to the summit monastery, it seems deserted despite the parking lot. Only the church can be visited without registration.
      From here partly on the road to the Santuari Nostra Senyora de Gràcia, which is picturesquely built into the rock below.
      First the access road back to the country road on this already in the curve on a path. Keep right to the hairpin curve at the beginning and then follow the same path back to the parking lot.

      Not very long, but very nice round on mostly unpaved paths and trails with many nice views.
      At each climbing point there is the possibility to choose the safe hiking route. This variant is possible with fearless children even without a via ferrata set.
      Plenty of seating, a rest area and a rest stop.
      Well frequented.
      There are places that deserve the classification "difficult", but not this variant.

      Mostly shady round on mostly beautiful paths with plenty of seating and refreshments. Some distant views.
      Komoot classification "difficult" exaggerated, only for the two climbs to Auerbacher Castle and Melibokus you should bring some condition.
      Several entry-level variants possible. So the tour can easily be shortened by 2.5 km and 90 vertical meters.
      From the starting point on the grounds of the Auerbach mountain church with the old cemetery. It opens up the first beautiful view. Then the paved road down into the village, over the Bachgasse and gently rising past some villas. In front of the villas you can look at cars with luck, which you will buy once when you grow up.After a memorial site with the first seats, the first climb begins. The soon unpaved Alemannenweg (red A on a white background) following, at the old waterworks with refuge over to Dr. Ing. Wilhelm Hahn hut.
      Here (do not be irritated by Komoot) turn right onto the unmarked path that leads back to the Alemannenweg on a paved section.
      On natural path to the Auerbacher castle, after the visit once around and not under the bridge, but the stairs left before up to the parking lot.
      After the Auerbacher castle, the first ascent is made. Pay attention here to the sign A, it leads right parallel to the road on a narrow path to another parking lot. Here you could follow straight on the A, save 300 meters and 20 meters in altitude, but the way to the right is a little nicer.If the path meets the Alemannenweg again, you could take a break about 50 meters to the left at the Paul Forster hut, but it is not absolutely necessary.
      After the parking lot "Not-Gottes" along the forest highway, keep an eye on the map. Komoot does not specify the point to leave the wide runway on an unmarked route in time.
      The path soon becomes narrower, leading a little further through the forest until you come to a forest edge. The comfortable path leads along an idyllic valley with meadows and pastures until you meet the graveled Nibelungensteig.Here you come left after a few meters on two benches with a view over, which can be used for a rest before the steepest climb.
      After the benches one touches the Alemannenweg, which from here is also very beautiful, but more frequented. It goes now unmarked steeply on stony path uphill until it meets the currently uninviting Forstmeister Kurz hut again on the Alemannenweg.
      From the hut it is not far, but still steep to the Melibokus, from whose viewing terrace you can enjoy the panoramic view.
      From now on it goes downhill on some narrow paths and paths, following the signpost 6, which will leave after a while straight to save a piece of forest highway.
      Near the "Not God" car park on the right on unpaved path to the mostly closed chapel with outdoor seating.
      Continue downhill and after a short stretch of road turn right and immediately left onto a narrow path parallel to the road. Pay attention to the map, Komoot is no acoustic aid here.
      After the parking lot "Höllberg", which offers itself as an entry-level variant, a very short stretch of road to a place where several ways pay. Keep left here, look at the display - here too, there's a hiccup with the speech output, once more upwards. On this piece is the only resting place of the round with a table.
      The path becomes the path, then becomes wider and you reach the Gasthof Waldschlösschen again on the way. At the memorial back to the village and back to the mountain church Auerbach.

      Nice mountain tour with many views on narrow paths and beautiful forest trails. Suitable for ambitious and fit, taller children (12 years). A classic. Komoot classification "Heavy" exaggerated.Right at the start it was quite steep on a wide road upwards. If the GR 221 turns right again the same distance to the Boal de ses Serveres. Here you have done the most boring piece of the tour.
      After the rest area on the right along a narrow path in some hairpin bends up through the forest to the Pas des Cosis. The forest ends here and the view of the mountain range is clear.
      From now on not so steep, there are always great views of the sea and the mountains. Past a Köhlerplatz and at some point even an almost flat section. A few sparse shadows in a few places.
      At the Pass de na Sabatera you can rest on a bench under a rock overhang before continuing on the alpine path to Puig de Galatzó.
      From the summit on the same path back to Pas de na Sabatera and now right down into the forest. From now on, almost all shadows and mostly on easy ways down. If you want, you can make a small detour to the signposted Font des Pi (left of the path, can easily be overlooked), but you can also save it. The spring is dry (as of 10.19) and not worth seeing.
      A little detour to the Mirador des ses Serveres is more worthwhile below. Nothing unique, but very nice.
      Back at the Boal de ses Serveres there is another opportunity to take a break on the eastern part of the rest area. There is a brick, windowless hut next to a ruined house. A few meters further you come to the already known part of the rest area and follow the path down to the car.
