Turn-by-turn directions

Return via the same route until you reach the Kälberplatte. Go left downhill on the sunken path and keep left. The northern part of the large bridge system has a footpath which leads up to the main road and over the bridge in a southerly direction.

At the end of the footpath, go under the bridge. Keep left and continue alongside the River Ammer in an upstream direction. At the next crossroads, turn left and go through an underpass to arrive back in the outskirts of Oberammergau.

Follow the signs to Vogelherdweg, cross the local access road and proceed along the main road towards the rock face beneath the Laber Mountain.

Continue uphill on a forest pathway until you reach a fork. Bear left, and after a few steps you will enjoy your first views of Ettal. Vogelherdweg takes you to the abbey along a mid-elevation path above the village.
