A classic among hiking trails is the mountain tour from Garmisch-Partenkirchen through the Reintal valley to the Zugspitze, Germany's highest mountain.
Gigantic rock faces look down on us to the right and left as we hike along the technically quite easy path over 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. An overnight stay is also possible in all of the huts. We climb 2300 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 on the Reintalanger or Knorrhütte.
