Discover nature and culture during this interesting tour. On the one hand, the route leads you through the historic centre of Partenkirchen and, on the other hand, it offers spectacular views over the town and valley. St. Anton pilgrimage church is really worth a visit. This Franciscan monastery is consecrated to Saint Antonius, who is said to have protected Partenkirchen from the Tyrolese during the War of the Spanish Succession. Take a break on one of the numerous benches in the St. Anton facilities.

Author’s recommendation

Finish your tour with a walk down historic Ludwigstraße and a visit of the Werdenfels Museum, which is located in the former 17th century Kaufmannshaus (merchant’s house). Nearly 1,000 years ago, Ludwigstraße used to be the central trading street in the Werdenfels region. Today, this beautiful street with its inns and restaurants that are typical of the Alpine region in the centre of Partenkirchen is perfect for walking, resting and shopping.

Turn-by-turn directions

Your tour starts on Badgasse, which is a part of the historic centre of Partenkirchen. When you leave the underground parking area, turn right into the small alley, which will lead onto Ludwigstraße after a few metres. On the left hand side, you will see the Werdenfels museum, opposite to Maria Himmelfahrt parish church. Keep to the right before turning onto Ballengasse. You will see the famous façade paintings on the houses, which tell stories about the old traditions of the inhabitants. Cross the Florainsplatz (square) with its fountain where the cattle stop for a drink in the summer early in the mornings or in the late afternoons when they are on their way to or from the nearby stables. Now, turn right onto Prof.-Michael-Sachs-Straße. After a few metres you will reach the Wankweg, which will lead you uphill, past the last houses, in the direction of the Gamshütte Alpine hut. 10 minutes later, you will reach the wooden cross at the Josefsbichl. Turn left here on the path to St. Anton/Gaststätte Panorama. Walk past the restaurant. Directly at the downhill path to St. Anton pilgrimage church, a small stream invites you to rest and play. The way leads you back into town behind the church and turns right to an adventure playground. Walking along the stream you will pass a cold-water basin (according to Father Kneipp's Water Cure) and then walk onto Brunnhäuslweg and back onto Prof.-Michael-Sachs-Straße. This time turn right onto Sonnenbergstraße and follow this road until you turn left at the Schäfflerbrunnen (fountain) onto the historic Ludwigstraße. Now, there are just a few metres to go until you reach the Werdenfels Museum. Turn right to return to Badgasse and the underground parking area.

Der Wank ist ein Berg im Südwesten des Estergebirges bei Garmisch-Partenkirchen mit einer Höhe von 1780 m ü. NN. Der Name geht auf ein altes Wort für „Hang“ zurück; der Berg wurde früher auch Eckenberg genannt. Hier mein kleines Video dazu. Man kann gut den Schwierigkeitsgrat sehen und einschätzen. http://youtu.be/lZbt-tmEOSE
