Hike description

  1. From Oberammergau Bahnhof (837m), 2km east across the town to St Gregor, following the stream.
  2. Then north-east for 3km up the forest path to the top of Aufacker (1542m) with excellent views towards Garmisch.
  3. Then, with the Stierkopf and Hörnle peaks in front, descend a couple of hundred metres, going north-west for 1km to the rather boggy Rehbreinmoos (1357m).
  4. Then back up a couple of hundred metres to Stierkopf.
  5. Then across a short ridge to the Hinteres Hörnle (1548m) from where the Mitteres- and Vorderes- Hörnle are visible.
  6. Then north-east along another ridge for 2km, either going over the top of the Mitteres Hörnle (1496m) and the Vorderes Hörnle (1390m) or taking the level paths around their east sides.
  7. Finally, descending along either one of the two paths close to the lift for 4km into Bad Kohlgrub (828m)

Excellent food in the Ludwig Stube in Bad Kohlgrub! (Please try to make it for the meal – it’s the best part of the day!)
