Turn-by-turn directions

With the Kreuzeckbahn cable car you can reach Kreuzeck Mountain (1,650 m). From the cable car station, hike along a small ridge and turn left after a few metres in the direction of Kreuzalm/Hausberg. This path leads downhill to the Kreuzalm. Right beneath the Alpine hut, turn left and and follow the signposts "Fußweg am Hausberg". The path continues slightly downhill through a thick mountain forest. After some time, you will cross the skiing slope at the Tröglhüte Alpine hut (when crossing the skiing slope, please watch out for the skiers and snowboarders). From here, the path goes quite evenly to the Garmischer Haus (Alpine hut) at Mount Hausberg. After the Garmischer Haus, walk further in the direction of the top terminal of the Hausbergbahn cable car (this cable car runs only in wintertime). In front of the top terminal, turn slightly to the right and follow the footpath into the forest. After a few minutes, you will arrive at the Bayernhaus (Alpine hut).

 

From here, you can follow the path into the valley to the base terminal of the Hausbergbahn cable car and walk along the footpath in the valley to your starting point at the Kreuzeckbahn cable car.

Alternatively, you can return on the same route to the top terminal of the Kreuzeckbahn cable car.
