After a comfortable ascent via the Soila Alm across attractive and open terrain, the Laberhaus Mountain Inn provides an ideal opportunity to take a break whilst taking in oustanding views of the Alps in the distance. Many are happy to take advantage of this stop-off point before commencing a steep climb presenting a gradient of up to 42%.

The course was developed in 2015 by the German Alpine Association working in conjunction with local representatives (forestry, hunting and farmers) as part of the “Environmentally friendly mountain skiing and climbing” project.

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 car park at the Laber Cable Car, start by following the route taken by the cable up the first small part of the mountain until you reach the forest road. Keeping alongside the River Laine, follow this road as far as the Bärenbadflecken, where you turn off right and ascend through open terrain to the Soila Alm. The route now becomes steeper, and the ski tour course turns off from the summer pathway to the right. It continues over the ridge of the Laberjoch and on to the Laberhaus Inn.
You descend into the valley via a very steep northern slope. In fact, the North slope of the Laber has a gradient of up to 42%. It is monitored by the Avalanche Commission and is the "steepest official downhill ski run in Germany". This descent should only be undertaken by experienced skiers.

Never get lost again. We recommend our free app "Ammergau Alp tour planner", which includes all tours in the region.
