A very attractive snow shoe hike over several summits with constant panoramic views and a cosy opportunity for refreshments at a hut during the descent

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.

Destination

Hinteres Hörnle

Turn-by-turn directions

The tour starts at the car park located above the valley station of the Tannenbankerl ski lift. Follow the ski slope to the right through a small wood. You then ascend to the Sonneneck, keeping the ski slope to your left at all times. Continue via the right-hand edge of the family downhill run past the mountain rescue hut until you reach the Hörnle Hut.
Please look out for descending skiers and keep to the edge of the slope.
From the Hörnle Hut, pass the Hörnle mountain cross country ski route on your left and proceed via the Vorderes Hörnle. You now descend slightly. Go past the Hörnle Alm and, on the opposite side of the mountain pasture, climb a few hundred metres to the Hinteres Hörnle.
Take the same route back to the Hörnle Hut without this time ascending the Vorderes Hörnle.
After a well-earned rest at the Hörnle Hut, hike back along the same route down into the valley or take the Hörnle ski lift.

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