This Nordic walking tour offers an insight into a man-made cultural landscape that can only be viewed in such original form in very few places in Bavaria.

Your walk will take you up the meadow slopes of the Ammer Valley to the Romanshöhe mountain inn, from where you will enjoy magnificent views of the Ammergau Alps and of the flowery landscape of PulvermoosMoor, via which you will also make your way back to Oberammergau.

Turn-by-turn directions

Start by proceeding uphill towards the WellenbergAdventure Pool. The upper section runs alongside the Obere Laine River. Shortly after leaving Oberammergau to your left, you will find yourself within the typical cultural landscape of the Bavarian Alps.

The farmers of the Ammer Valley still cultivate the meadows on the soft slopes in an almost identical way to hundreds of years ago. Follow Altherrenweg to the Romanshöhe mountain inn,  which offers the best views of Oberammergau and of the meadow slopes of the Ammer Valley.

Following your visit to the inn, continue until the path branches off at am Roten Bichel shortly before Unterammergau, and retrace your steps back towards the Passion Play venue. Return to Oberammergau via the Pulvermoos, a flat meadowland and hilly landscape with unique flora.

The world-famous Passion Play Theatre also lies on your return route.
