The previously unnamed hill up to Bad Kohlgrub's local mountain, the Hörnle, has been known since 2013 as "Zeitberg", and with six newly-designed islands of tranquillity it now provides special opportunities to relax while enjoying the unique view of the Ammergau Alpine region spread out below.
Anyone who wants some quality time without interruption can simply lock their mobile phone, tablet etc. into the lockers at the summit and stroll offline through the mountainscape.
First take in the natural 3D cinema, then it's off to the reading corner and then to the massage table with exfoliating option? Whatever you decide to do: A 4.3 kilometre circular walking trail connects the individual stations with each other and leads step by step from one oasis of relaxation to the next.
It's been known for people to simply doze off in the oversized wooden mud baths, forgetting everything around them. No matter.
Because after an extended snooze, the thirst for knowledge can be awakened once more - something the many information displays will satisfy.
- Prehistoric period (creation of the Alps)
- Breeding times (Alpine birds)
- Grazing period (agriculture in the Alps) and
- Regeneration time (development time line for animals in the mountain climate)
Here you can really take the time to read through the information on the natural surroundings in peace and quiet, without any annoying ringing or beeping.
The Zeitberg on the Hörnle has become a popular destination, perfectly suited for those seeking refuge from everyday life - for switching off, pausing and feeling life or simply experiencing nature once more with all of the senses.
Further information on Zeitberg can be found on the flyers at the upper and lower stations of the Hörnlebahn. You can find a description of the route in our trip planner.
