Another weekend passed. So another hiking post. If you are interested in doing the same hiking trail, read the “Details” section.  If you are interested in how the path looks like, see the “Video” section.

5 hours without snow.
7 hour with snow.
DifficultyEasy without snow.
Medium with snow.
Equipment neededA GRÖDEL/CRAMPOONS for some parts during winter. GAITERS are must if there is fresh snow, otherwise your whole shoe will be soaking wet. In winter, carry layers of clothing so that you can remove/add as necessary. When we did the hike it was close to -10 C.
SuggestionsCarry enough food to last at/least half-a-day. Carry 1-2 liter of water. In winter the first few huts are closed. The hut that is open in winter is kemptener naturfreundehaus. It will take 4 hours to reach there.

To make the trip more fun, carry a plastic sledge if you have one. On the descent there is path made for sledding. I promise it is fun.

    Hey, nice to see there’s actually real snow in Germany! Where we lived (NRW) there was hardly a dusting during the winters. I subscribed to your channel! 🙂

      Thank you Jessica! I guess now snow will be rarity for you, since you are in south asia 😉 ! I hope you are having fun. Keep us posted on your journeys.
