The Kreuzspitze is one of the most popular mountain skiing destinations in the Ammergau Alps. The steep North corrie is a fantastic place to ski if there is powdery snow. The climb is, however, extremely strenuous and steep with very few areas of level terrain. It should only be attempted in good weather conditions and by experienced skiers.

Nach der Tour wartet das Heißwasserbecken des Erlebnisbad WellenBerg in Oberammergau auf Ihren Besuch. Bei traumhafter Kulisse lässt es sich hier im 34Grad warmen Becken bestens entspannen.

Turn-by-turn directions

From the parking bay on the road, start by retracing your steps for a few metres until you reach the cutting which leads down from the mighty North corrie of the Kreuzspitze. There are often a few cars parked at the side of the road. Climb down to the stream, which you cross before proceeding through a wood and into the cutting leading to the corrie of the Kreuzspitze. Your route continues up to the right of the corrie and ascends steeply to the western ridge of the Kreuzspitze, which is covered with mountain pine, and on to the summit slope. From here, you normally need to continue to the summit on foot (rocky routes). If conditions are very good, it is even possible to access the summit slope by ski (approx. 40 degrees).

Ein absolutes Highlight in Oberbayern. Der Schlussanstieg ist spektakulär genauso wie der Gipfelblick auf Wetterstein und Lechtaler Alpen.
