      Absolutely impressive - that is probably the most appropriate name for this hike. At 21.8 kilometers and 810 meters in altitude, it is also quite challenging. But what the landscape has to offer you here in terms of views and natural beauties, rewards for all your efforts. It starts in Krün. You first hike to the Fischbachalm, which you can also use as a stop on the way back.We continue on the Lakaiensteig, which leads through light, green, lush forest up to the Soiernsee. You hike a little up towards the Gumpenkarspitze and get a magnificent view and first impression of the Soiernsee on the hill. Here you can see one of the most beautiful panoramas of the Karwendel. Now you hike back down a little and get up close and personal with the lake. Pleasantly cool, isn't it?To strengthen yourself, you can stop at the Soiernhaus of the same name and enjoy views of the Schöttelkarspitze. The way back is on the way there. Enjoy the beautiful views again until you are back in Krün and start your journey home.

      On this hike you will discover the Kuhflucht waterfalls near Farchant, which are among the highest waterfalls in Germany. There are various theories about the origin of the name. Some assume that the name "Kuhflucht" is derived from "Kuhflack". In summer the cows “flickered” comfortably in the shade. This is where the name came from.The forest adventure trail, which winds its way through mixed forest with over forty species of trees for a leisurely three kilometers, is particularly fun for children. On the Königsweg you finally reach the Kuhflucht waterfalls in a leisurely climb. This path is suitable for children from three years of age, but the stroller should be parked below. The water falls 270 meters deep into the valley via three waterfall levels, making it one of the highest waterfalls in Germany. The waterfall roars particularly impressively while the meltwater flows down from the mountains.Tip: If you haven't had enough of the hike to the Kuhflucht waterfalls, you can continue on the Philosophenweg towards Garmisch-Partenkirchen. The nice path takes you to the Schützenhaus restaurant below the Wank valley station in just under an hour. There you can enjoy many Bavarian delicacies and enjoy the view of the Zugspitze massif. You can take the bus back to Farchant.

      Over thousands of years, the roaring Partnach has dug itself up to 80 meters deep into the rock over a distance of around 800 meters. In 1912 the Partnach Gorge with its waterfalls, pools and rapids was declared a natural monument. On your way to the gorge you will pass the Partnach weir. Here it is already apparent that the stream is very powerful.Once in the gorge, you first walk past the Partnach Gorge waterfall. A pleasant refreshment on a hot day! On narrow paths carved into the rock, which are secured with an iron railing, you hike along the wildly roaring brook. Those with a head for heights can also go up one floor to cross the iron bridge at a height of almost 70 meters. It connects the hiking areas Hausberg and Eckbauer. A guided torchlight hike, which is also carried out in winter, is a special experience.As soon as you have left the gorge, you switch to a beautiful, rooted hiking trail and a little later you reach the Partnach Gorge. Here you can strengthen yourself and enjoy a beautiful alpine panorama. From here you can start numerous hiking tours into the Reintal, Ferchenbachtal, Eckbauer, Hausberg or Kreuzeck areas. This hike ends at your starting point, to which you hike back after your stop.

      The Höllentalklamm, which was developed 100 years ago, is something very special in the Zugspitz region. The roaring Hammersbach rushes impressively over boulders through a narrow gorge down into the depths. On the one kilometer long hiking trail you hike through the gorge up to 150 meters deep, come across numerous waterfalls and constantly hear the hellishly loud rush of water.A hike through the Höllentalklamm is refreshing and beneficial, especially on hot summer days. A jacket and sturdy shoes are always advisable because the climate is much cooler than outside the gorge and the paths can also be slippery. A hike through the gorge takes about an hour.After you have crossed the gorge, the Höllental opens up to you with a view of the peaks of the Waxensteine, the Riffel walls, the Höllentalferner and the Zugspitze. And soon you will reach the newly built Höllentalangerhütte, where you can stop for a hearty snack. The views from here are breathtaking and the air is pleasantly fresh. The way back is the same way you went up.

      A hike through the wild and romantic Schleifmühlenklamm in Unterammergau has at least one great surprise in store for you. It was once the mills of the whetstone makers that made the place famous and rich. During a hike through the gorge, you will learn interesting facts about the history of the gorge at seven adventure and information stations.Your path will also take you past historic grinding mills. Along the torrent you hike on footbridges and steps to the beautiful small waterfalls. Because it is a bit bubbly and sometimes slippery here, a waterproof jacket and sturdy shoes are recommended. Exciting: On the second Saturday of the month from June to September you can visit “Schneiderlas Schleifmühle”. Whetstones are made in it for display purposes.After exploring the gorge, you hike up a root path to the Steckenbergkreuz. Somehow the 300 vertical meters of the tour have to come about. The Steckenberg Cross, located at 1,228 meters, offers great views of the Hohen Peißenberg and Ammersee, Unterammergau and the Hörnle group as well as the Sonnenberg and Brunnberg to the south. After a long rest, you will return to the starting point later.

      The Leutasch Spirit Gorge is a very special experience for young and old. You can explore the gorge on three themed trails and cool off comfortably on particularly hot days. Conversely, that means that you should take a jacket with you into the gorge, because the climate here is already fresher. Your discovery tour starts with the Klammgeistweg, on which you are on the trail of the Klammgeist at mysterious stations. The path leads over the 800 meter long bridge to the panorama bridge, from which you can see the turquoise water particularly beautiful.You can find out how the gorge was created on another section of the path - on the Koboldpfad. Along the almost two kilometer long goblin path, goblins report on the power of glaciers and rocks. It will be spectacular again on the 250 meter long waterfall trail, on which you hike deep into the mysterious gorge and get very close to the roaring white water of the Loisacher Ache. At the end of the path, the 23 meter high waterfall awaits you. Lean back and take your time to take in this natural spectacle.Now you are leaving the great gorge. A lovely meadow landscape opens up in front of you and you can warm up again in the sunshine. Soon you will reach the mountain inn Gletscherschliff, which invites you to take a break. You can end the afternoon with a cool drink and a hearty meal and then make your way back. A great day is coming to an end.

      On this short tour you will hike two beautiful mountain lakes, a castle ruin and two rustic refreshment stops. Right at the beginning you get to the wonderfully beautiful lake Pflegeersee. This moor lake is located below the Königstand in the Kramer massif and is a treat for hair and skin. You should definitely make a swim stop in the associated lido. In summer the temperatures of the lake are between 19 and 23 degrees. So nice and pleasant! You can also stop off at the Berggasthof at the Pflegeersee.It continues. After about two kilometers you will reach the Werdenfels castle ruins. It is about 80 meters above the Loisach Valley with a great view of Garmisch and Farchant. As a spur castle, it served as the administrative center of the County of Werdenfels until 1632. A few meters later you come to the rustic, beautiful Werdenfels hut, which offers delicious homemade food.And if you can handle an increase in idyll and naturalness, then look forward to the Schmölzersee, which is the last stage of your hike. Framed by tall conifers, which are in turn enclosed by the Ammergau mountains, this calm lake lies in front of you and invites you to take a leisurely rest. The parking lot is not far from here.

      The Eibsee is one of the great highlights of the Zugspitz region. This green-turquoise shimmering mountain lake invites you to a wonderful round tour with great views, but also offers fantastic bathing opportunities. You can often see stand-up paddlers on the lake doing their sport in this wonderful setting. If you too want to be out on the water, you can borrow a nice wooden rowing boat and go for a lap on the lake.A lap around the lake is exactly seven kilometers long. You start from the parking lot counterclockwise and first walk to the north bank. Soon you will cross a bridge from which you have a great view of the lake. If you let your gaze wander upwards, you have a fantastic view of the Zugspitze massif. There are also very small islands on the lake, on the banks of which the water shines through in turquoise. You continue to circle the lake. On the south-east bank you will pass a small foothill - the mossy-green Frillensee.And if you still have time and inclination after your Eibsee tour, take the Zugspitzbahn up to the summit. I promise, the view of the lake on your drive is almost a little more breathtaking than on a hike around the lake. You should always have your camera ready because you can take great photos from the cabin.

      This tour around the Soier See proves that a three-kilometer tour can be very entertaining. It is located in Bad Bayersoien and is a moor lake. Therefore, it is considered to be one of the warmest swimming lakes in southern Bavaria, which is not only a real joy for children. Right at the beginning of your tour you will come across the idyllic and very cozy Fischerhäusel, a kiosk where you can treat yourself to a specialty.The Soier See is surrounded by the wonderful mountain scenery of the Ammergau Alps. Swimming is even more fun in this beautiful natural setting. You can spread your blanket on the large lawn and enjoy your delicious snack. For a little variety, you can also borrow a rowboat and get to know the lake from a completely different perspective. With children you can explore the barefoot path and the bird nature trail on the lake and learn a lot of interesting facts about flora and fauna.A special highlight is waiting on the eastern shore of the lake - the moor nature trail with three information stations. The formation and importance of the moor for the region is clearly explained on the boards. Bad Bayersoien is very proud of its high moor, the peat of which is also used for spa operations. After so much variety, you will return to the starting point a little later.

      A wonderful round with great views, almost no incline and three great lakes to jump in: this tour has that in store for you. You start your round anti-clockwise and experience fantastic views of the Wetterstein Mountains with the highest elevation in Germany: the almost 3,000 meter high Zugspitze. Then you will reach the first lake - the Barmsee. Here on the north-west bank you will find a nice bathing area.Continue towards Geroldsee, which you will reach after about two and a half more kilometers. Your bikini or swimming trunks may have just dried out again while dangling from your backpack. Then nothing like into the Buxe and into the crystal clear water. As soon as you surfaced again, you will be amazed at how beautiful the views of the Karwendel Mountains are.Now you cover a longer distance of about five kilometers until you can plunge into the cool water a third and last time on this tour. Although the Grubsee is the warmest lake in the area, you will still feel nice and refreshed - especially when you suddenly fly into the water on the slide. After so much swimming and hiking fun, you will reach your starting point satisfied.
