This beautiful circular tour leads from the mountain station of the Eckbauer cable car through beautiful forest passages and fragrant mountain meadows to Elmau Castle. The tour then returns to the mountain station via the Elmauer Alm.

This tour begins with a 15-minute ride on the EckbauerBahn, the starting point is at the mountain station. From there we hike on a circular route first to Elmau Castle, which is a hotel and restaurant. We continue to the Elmauer Alm and finally back to the mountain station of the Eckbauer cable car. The Eckbauer mountain inn near the mountain station, Elmau Castle and the Elmau Alpine farm offer several nice places to stop before, during and after the hike.
