Hiking in the Bavarian foothills of the Alps

Kramerspitz summit (1985 m) and Stepberg Alm

Very nice hike with stunning views of the Zugspitze, Germany's highest mountain and Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
Starting point at an alpine hut (parking). First we walk in the direction of St.Martin. Then via the narrow trail Kramersteig up to the Kramer Spitz mountain (approx 4.5 hours). The descent (3 hrs) via the Stepbergalm and the Kreuzweg back to the alpine hut.

Herzogstand summit (1731 m), Heimgarten ridge walk, via ferrata

In just 4 minutes the Herzogstand cable car runs from the Walchensee up to Herzogstand summit station. The mountain guest house is the starting point for the hike to Martinskopf (1674 m) summit, continued by the winding path up to the Herzogstand viewing pavilion on the summit (1731 m).
On Herzogsstand summit the Heimgarten tightrope walk begins. The Heimgarten via ferrata belongs to the most beautiful 100 ridge hiking tours in the European Alps. Despite of safety ropes in many narrow places the Heimgarten ridge walk requires good shoes and a certain degree of surefootedness and head for heights. The view from the ridge down to the lakes of Kochel and Walchensee is breathtaking. Clearly visible is the famous Walchensee hydroelectric plant. Approximately in the middle of the ridge trail we pass the Schlehdorfer cross. Then it goes on switchbacks steep up to the summit cross of the Heimgarten mountain (1790 m). Not far from the summit cross is the in summer seasons managed Heimgarten alpine hut.

On the beautiful but not too strenuous hike, I am accompanied by my Jack Russell Terrier Linux.
