This is the video I have recorded last year. It was the tour from Eibsee which is absolutely advanced and dangerous:
This is a beautiful video of this year’s trip taken from the internet: This year’s tour is advanced due to the 2064 m of ascent but not so dangerous if you take the cable car at Sonnalpin like you can see in the video below! Aproaching Gatterl might be a bit chalanging but is secured with metal cables as you can also see in the video.
Event description Saturday:
We will meet at Naturcampingpark Isarhorn on Friday evening and spend the night there. On Saturday we will drive to Ehrwald Almbahn Station and start the hike from there. Please be aware that we will be on the south side which means intense sunlight! Protect yourself! We will pass by Ganghofer Hütte, Tirolerhaus, Berggasthof Ehrwalder Alm, Pestkapelle. We will cross the border to Austria at Gatterl passing through a gate and head on to Knorrhütte where we could have lunch if we didn’t have a stop before due to hunger. Towards the end of the hike we will have to cross scree fields which might be exhausing. Who wouldn’t like to do so can take the cable car to the top at Sonnalpin in order to avoid the most difficult part. From the top we will take the cablecar back to Ehrwald Almbahn station. The last cablecar is at 16:40 so we need to be up there till then!

A fascinating and varied hike awaits you. The impressive natural spectacle of the Partnach Gorge turns this walk into an unforgettable experience.
This varied trail takes you through meadows and thick deciduous forest, and leads you past spectacular waterfalls and pools in the Partnach Gorge. After a steep hike up to the Partnachalm the valley opens up to fantastic views of the Wetterstein mountains. Just before reaching the pond at the Kochelberg Alm (Alpine hut) the route passes a dormant sulphur spring on the left hand side, which you will recognise by the piled and stacked stones which are covered with a pretty layer of moss. If you breathe in deeply you’ll smell the intense odour of sulphur emitted from the water, which for this reason is not suitable for drinking.
I have 4 seats in my car. 35 euros per person. This includes all transport. Please get in touch with me with your phone number. +491624533588
