The Hörnle is the home mountain of Bad Kohlgrub and lies at the "gateway" to the Ammergau Alps. The ascent provides fabulous views out over the Alpine foothills.

After refreshments at the Hörnle Hut, enjoy a rapid descent by toboggan back into the valley.

Author’s recommendation

Damit man bei der ca. 20 Minütigen Fahrt mit dem offenen Sessellift nicht zu sehr auskühlt, empfiehlt es sich eine der Decken um die Hüften zu wickeln, die an der Talstation in einer großen Kiste bereit stehen. Oben angekommen steht die nächste Kiste zum ablegen der Decke bereit.

Destination

Hörnle cable car valley station - Bad Kohlgrub

Turn-by-turn directions

Ascent on foot take place along the summer hiking path up onto the (Vorderes) Hörnle. Even after heavy new snowfall, this path is easily accessible in winter and a better option than the forest road, on which you will have tobogganists coming towards you.

The easiest and most comfortable means of ascent is, however, via the Hörnle ski lift. This makes the downhill stretch more fun and perhaps leaves time for further descents.
