This tour is a combination of piste ascent and hiking across open terrain. It enables beginners to familiarise themselves with the technique of snow shoe walking on the first section of the route and apply what they have learned during the second section.
After an ascent through the skiing region and a stop for refreshments at the Hörnle Hut, the most spectacular part of the tour begins. As you continue up to the Stierkopf, you will enjoy fabulous views of the Alpine foothills, of Lake Ammersee and Lake Starnberg and of the Ester Mountains and Wetterstein.
The descent from the Stierkopf passes via the Drei Marken through the forest down to Unterammergau. You return to your starting point at Bad Kohlgrub by bus or rail.
