This challenging mountain tour takes us on alpine and scenic trails from Ehrwald via the Gatterl to Germany's highest mountain, the Zugspitze.

This tour begins with a ride in the gondola to the Ehrwalder Alm. From there it goes via the Hochfeldneralm to the Gatterl. Continue on the Plattsteig trail to the Knorrhütte and through the karst landscape of the Zugspitzplatt to the glacier cable car. Here the trail leads up to the Zugspitze on a partially secured, black-marked path through the rocks. If you don't feel up to it, you can take the cable car. On the Zugspitze you can enjoy a breathtaking panorama before returning to Ehrwald on the Tyrolean Zugspitzbahn.

Es ist schon eine Weile her, als ich die Tour gemacht habe. Ich schlage vor, Sie wenden sich wg. dem ´Pro-Account´ direkt an outdooractive.

Dies ist offensichtlich eine sogenannte Premiumtour. Sie ist kostenpflichtig.
