Fabulous views of Oberammergau and the surrounding area can be enjoyed from the Altherrenweg as you move on towards the Romanshöhe. The route rises gently along the meadow slopes, the typical cultural landscape of the Ammergau Alps. This is terrain that has been cultivated by local farmers for centuries.

The trail becomes steeper and wends its way up to our first summit – the Stierkopf at 1535 metres. You now continue to our second target summit nearby, the Hinteres Hörnle. This mountain has a deserved reputation for its fantastic 360-degree panoramic views, which reach as far as the Alpine foothills and Munich to the North. Germany's highest mountain, the Zugspitze, is visible to the South – so near that it almost seems that you could reach out and touch it.

You descend through attractive mountain forest towards Unterammergau. The oldest church in the Ammer Valley, the Kappel, lies on your route and is well worth a visit before proceeding back to Oberammergau via the Pulvermoos nature reserve.

Author’s recommendation

Ein Glas frische Buttermilch auf der Hörnle-Alm sorgt für neue Kraft und Motivation für den Abstieg.
