This walking holiday takes you to the foot of the Zugspitze, Germany’s highest mountain at 2,962m. Follow panoramic trails through mountainous scenery and traditional Alpine towns and villages.
Immerse yourself in Germanic Alpine culture; hike from town to town, and enjoy loop walks to make the most of the area’s fantastic hiking opportunities. Your adventure begins in Garmisch-Partenkirchen in Bavaria, and finishes in the Tyrolean town of Ehrwald in Austria.
The walks are varied; walk to the imposing, baroque Ettal Abbey at the heart of the Benedictine monastery. Hike the dramatic 150m deep ‘Hells Valley’ gorge and take a ride on the ‘Zugspitzbahn’ to the scenic Eibsee lake. At the end of the day you can look forward to relaxing in comfortable, hand-picked accommodations with a refreshing Bavarian beer.
