DifficultyThe walk has been designed for 'any able-bodied walker' and offers an excellent introduction to long distance hiking in the Alps. It is mountainous, however, and a head for heights is essential. There is an abundance of accommodation along the route with the 30 day itinerary assuming walks of between 4 and 9 hours.
Must SeeRegarded by many German hikers as the journey of a lifetime, 'The Dreamway' visits some of the Alp's finest scenery: the Karwendel, Tux and Zillertal Alps and the Dolomites.
