Simple and varied, yet long walk through the town and along the sunny south side of Mount Kramer.
Distance 11.4 km
This walk is excellent with wonderful views of the town and the Wetterstein mountain range. Stretches of the route take you through thin mountain forest, which provides lots of shade in the summer. For families the nature trail and the castle ruins guarantee an eventful walk. And who knows, you might just find treasure buried in the ruins. This tour can be approached from both directions.
For a more detailed description of the tour, please refer to "PDF Print" above.
Seize the opportunity and explore the ruins of Werdenfels castle, which said to be haunted by some ghosts. In this context also refer to the themed “Castle trail”. After your trip into the past we recommend a stop at the Alpine hut Werdenfelser Hütte.
Watch out! At the moment there is only very limited access to the castle trail.
