Self-guided Walking Tour Garmisch to Leutasch

From Garmisch to Leutasch and return

Mount Zugspitze, with 2.962 m height the highest mountain of Germany belongs to the most popular mountains of the Alps and can easily be reached by cable car. During this week you walk around the basis of the mountain, see it from different angles and pass by beautiful natural highlights. Quite adventurous and sensational crossings of gorges, impressing the walker with their water gushing through narrow high rock walls.
