Who wants to climb the Klammspitze or the Brunnenkopfhäuser? These are just two of many destinations that could be scrambled in the Ammergau Alps Nature Park. And although the right equipment and mountain experience are an advantage, you wouldn't even have to be a pro to do it.

Ideal for the sure-footed hiker who, in addition to sporting ambition, also has a sense of the beauty of the surroundings and for whom a hearty stop at a mountain hut is just as important as the summit. By the way, the MaximilianswegThe long-distance hiking trail from Lindau on Lake Constance to Berchtesgaden runs through the Ammergebirge mountains.
