This hike takes us from the mountain station of the Eckbauer cable car via Germany's highest church village, Wamberg, down to Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Along the way we pass through beautiful forest passages and fragrant mountain meadows.

When we set off on our hike can be planned individually, because the Eckbauer cable car takes us up to the 1237 m high Eckbauer every day from 9.00 am to 5.00 pm. In 15 minutes we float up to the summit. At the top there are some nice places to stop for refreshments. From the summit of the Eckbauer, we then descend to the highest church village in Germany - Wamberg. Here we can take a short break before continuing our descent to Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
