This tour begins directly in front of the Benedictine Abbey in Ettal.

The abbey is set in an enchanting location and was founded by Emperor Ludwig in 1330 upon his safe return to his homeland. Centuries later, King Ludwig II also admired the special location and built Linderhof Palace in the Graswang Valley only a few kilometres away.

A brief climb onto the Ochsensitz will make the motivations behind the building plans of the two royal personages even more clear. Breathtaking views of the Ammergau Alps, the Ester Mountains and the Wetterstein will accompany you as you make your way along the ridge and over the Zieglspitz to your destination – the Notkarspitze,


affectionately known by locals as the "Not". You descend into a corrie and continue down into the valley via a path and a steep twisting route. Once you arrive below, it is well worth while stopping off at Ettal Mill. Enjoy a refreshing drink and a tasty Bavarian snack before returning to the starting point of the tour, a journey of only 20 minutes.

Author’s recommendation

Nach der Tour lohnt ein Abstecher zur Schaukäserei Ettal. Probieren Sie hier unbedingt den Feuer- oder Bierkäse, der aus heimischer Milch hergestellt wird.

Turn-by-turn directions

Starting from the car park at Ettal Abbey, proceed along the main street past the Klosterhotel Ludwig der Bayer and take the first street on the right, Notalmweg. Continue in a southerly direction   across a short section of meadow heading towards the mountain forest. This is the start of the climb up to the Ochsensitz, from where many paths lead up steeply through the woods. From the Ochsensitz, the tour now continues along the ridge over the Zieglspitz to the Notkarspitze. The whole route offers fabulous views of the Karwendel, Wetterstein and Ammergau Alps. The descent from the Notkarspitze takes place in a northerly direction down to the Großkaralm. Steep and twisting turns   quickly take you back down into the valley. When you arrive below, take the path along the edge of the forest back to your starting point.

Ein sehr schöner Aussichtsberg! Nachteil: Der beschriebene Anstiegsweg sowie der Gipfel sind an bestimmten Tagen gnadenlos überlaufen.
