This footpath is lined at one side by magnificent mountain forests that offer sufficient shade in the summer. On your right hand side you will see the town. Green meadows with a wide variety of flowers and hey barns all form the natural border to the hiking regions. When the meadows are mowed and the hey is made in the late summer and autumn, the scent of the freshly cut grass is really wonderful. Enjoy a traditional hearty Bavarian snack, the so-called “Brotzeit” on the terrace of the Hammersbacher Hütte, which is located between Hammersbach and rocks and some distance away from the street.

We recommend you to return by the Zugspitzbahn rack railway from Hammersbach to your starting point. To reach the stop, walk along the little road that leads to the right directly in front of the entrance of the hotel. The rack railway leaves every hour in both directions.
