The Bavarian Alps lie along the German–Austrian border in a thin sliver of land roughly 300km long. Crammed into this area is some of the most spectacular walking and beautiful scenery that Germany has to offer. The region is also home to picturesque villages and towns, and to King Ludwig’s world-famous fairy-tale castles. Reasonable prices and an excellent tourist infrastructure make the Bavarian Alps the perfect destination for an easy-to-organise and affordable walking holiday.
Although Germany’s small slice of the European Alps offers few peaks that compare in height to those in neighbouring Austria, the scenery is no less rewarding for walkers.
Scenic highlights include the breathtakingly beautiful Königssee, a pristine lake in the Berchtesgaden Alps, the romantic Breitach, Partnach and Höllental gorges, and the rack-railway trip to the summit of the Zugspitze, Germany’s highest mountain.
Route 22. Gams Hut burned down in 2015 and it will be rebuilt on the same spot by around 2018. Thanks to Howard Beanland for this update Information.
