What to expect

The German Bavarian part of the Alps is quite beautiful, something to be seen once in life. So why not take a journey around the highest mountain in this part of the Alps. You will discover green meadows, snow-covered peaks and stunning waterfalls. 

Mount Zugspitze, 2962m high, is easily reached by taking a cable car. But a truly wonderful week you will spend walking around the bottom, sleeping in little towns and picnicking for lunch.

This hiking trip is not recommendable for travellers with mobility impairments.

Detailed tour description

Day 1: Individual arrival to Garmisch-Partenkirchen
This cute town is famous for the winter sport, which plays an absolute huge here. And even if it is summer, take some time to stroll through the alleys and small roads. Get accustomed to the Bavarian style of living and maybe get your first “Brotzeit” here.

Day 2: Garmisch-Patenkirchen – Mittenwald/Klais (approx. 16 km, walking time: approx. 5 hrs)
Finally your journey around the mountain Zugspitze started. One of the highlights of the tour is the Partnachklamm (Partnach gorge), the entrance fee is not included, but it will be totally worth your time and money. Where else can you walk between sheer rock walls with a river under you? Later you will walk along peaceful meadows towards Klais or Mittenwald. If you want to, you can rush one part of your journey by taking the tram, but the fee is equally not included.

Day 3: Mittenwald/Klais – Leutasch (approx. 14 km, walking time: approx. 4 hrs)
The next part of your journey goes along the Leutscher Ache. It was cut out of the rock and the way on wooden planks is a bit adventurous, but also it is really safe on them. On your way to Leutasch Valley the great big massif of Wetterstein throws its shadow over lovely meadows and your way. Finally in Leutasch you can relax your feet or spend some additional time on your feet taking a stroll through the town to get to know the Tyrolean style of living

Day 4: Day off or lake tour (approx. 9 km, walking time: approx. 3 hrs)
You can spend the day relaxing and just not walking or you could do the opposite and go for a small side journey around Seefeld (a lake). You could also go on an excursion to one of the Seefelder summits. Here you have the choice of plain walking or lazily going by cable car.

Day 5: Leutasch – Ehrwald (approx. 17 km, walking time: approx. 5 hrs)
You have to take the bus to the nature paradise Gaistal, where todays journey will start. On meadows along the road you will be able to see some livestock in form of cute Haflinger horses, cattle and Scottish Galloways. Keep walking on the Ganhofer path towards the Ehrwalder Alm. The Bavarian author Ludwig Ganghof has spent quite some time in this valley and a lot of his novels are inspired by it. Later you can take the cable car down into the valley and walk further on to the Ehrwalder Alm, where you will spend your night.

Day 6: Ehrwald – Garmisch-Partenkirchen (approx. 12 km, walking time: approx. 4,5 hrs)
Now with the mountain Zugspitze in direct view, walk towards it. You will get to the Eibsee view, which is a famous panoramic view. After making this memory unforgettable, take the train back to Garmisch-Partenkirchen, where your journey stared and will end.

Day 7: Individual departure
We hope you enjoyed your journey around the bottom of the mountain Zugspitze. Maybe we can attract you with a few additional nights in Garmisch-Partenkirchen and a travel up the mountain. Or another journey somewhere? We will help you planning and booking so you can enjoy your vacation.

This hiking trip is not recommendable for travellers with mobility impairments.
