Once you have completed a small climb up to "Wäldle", you will see the mud spa village of Bad Kohlgrub below you as well as enjoying magnificent views of the Ammergau Alps.

Sprittelsberg boasts a wooden chapel with a Statue of Our Lady from Altötting. From the heights of Steigrain, you will once again be treated to fabulous views of the village and of its "home mountain" the "Hörnle".

Author’s recommendation

Nach dieser Winterwanderung können Sie sich bei einem Glühwein oder alkoholfreien Punsch an der Winterbar in der Ortsmitte von Bad Kohlgrub stärken. Frau Weisser eröffnet ihre Bar vom 27. Dezember bis 05. Januar direkt an ihrem Weinladerl.
