This tour begins in the Schleifmühl Gorge, where you will find out how the inhabitants of Unterammergau earned their living in past centuries from the manufacture of whetstones.

You then proceed via the high plain up to the Kuhalm. You are now in the former hunting grounds of the Wittelsbach dynasty. The Pürschlinghaus, which is already visible, was used for overnight accommodation on hunting trips by both King Maximilian and his son Ludwig II.

At the summit, fabulous views open up of the surrounding mountains and of Graswang Valley, in which Ludwig II built his legendary Linderhof Palace. After a short descent and a visit to the magnificent sun terrace of the Pürschling House, you return to your starting point via a forest road.

Author’s recommendation

Auf den ehemaligen königlichen Jagdhäusern gibt es zwar keinen "kaiserlichen Schmarren", dafür aber sagenhafte gute, hausgemachte Kuchen.

Turn-by-turn directions

Starting from the hikers' car park at the grinding mill in Unterammergau, proceed up the forest road for 100 metres before entering directly into the Schleifmühl Gorge.

At the end of the gorge, follow the forest road towards the Kuhalm. When you arrive, leave the forest road to the left. The hiking trail up to the Teufelstättkopf begins here.
Shortly before the summit, the terrain becomes more rocky and exposed. A short secured path leads up to the summit.

The road back now will take to Pürschling Haus, where refreshments are available.

A forest road begins here which will take you back to the starting point of the tour via the beautifully situated St Joseph's Chapel.

Weg erfolgt größtenteils auf Schotterweg und zieht sich. Finaler Aufstieg und die Aussicht sind sehr schön! Jedoch sehr überlaufen

Wunderschöner Beginn der Tour durch die Schleifmühlklamm, danach längeres Stück Forststraße, etwas eintönig, dafür wird man aber reichlich belohnt ab dem Wanderweg links nach der Kuhalm, dann wunderschöner Gipfel mit Rundumsicht. Danach gehts nach einem kurzen Abstieg zum Einkehrschwung ins Pürschlinghaus mit einer herrlichen Sonnenterrasse. Auch der Abstieg über den Plattenberggrat ist empfehlenswert.

Schöne Rundtour, am Anfang der Rundtour empfand ich die Strecke als recht eintönig, was sich dann allerdings schnell wieder gab. Am oberen Stück zum Teufelstättkopf hat man eine wunderschöne Aussicht und wenn die Sonne raus kommt fühlt man förmlich das Gipfelglück. Zu empfehlen 😊
