A real „paradise trail“ is the hike from Garmisch-Partenkirchen through the Reintal valley to the Zugspitze, Germany's highest point.

Giant rock faces look down on us to the right and left as we hike along the technically quite easy trail über the Partnachklamm gorge through the Reintal valley. We climb steadily uphill, approaching the highest point in Germany and finally reach it after an eventful mountain hike. Technically, the tour is not too challenging, but if you do it in one day, it is very demanding in terms of fitness. In the upper section, surefootedness and a head for heights are necessary. Alternatively, this section can be bypassed with a cable car. We can stop at the Reintalangerhütte, the Knorrhütte or the Münchner Haus. Accommodation is also possible in all of the huts. We climb 2500 metres of ascent along the route (21 km). Plan between nine and eleven hours for this tour, which can be spread over two days with an overnight stay at the Reintalanger or Knorrhütte huts.

Der landschaftlich schönste Teil ist entlang der Partnach und von der Reintalangerhütte bis zur Knorrhütte. Das Zugspitzplatt ist hauptsächlich wegen der Aussicht auf die umliegenden Berge interessant. Insgesamt eine lohnende Tour.
