Hiking time: a little less than 5 hours

We take the train to Garmisch and then the Zugspitztrain to Hammersbach. After that we walk up to the entrance of the Stangensteig trail.

A trail right above the Hoellental canyon which goes down straight 30 to 60m next to the trail.

After that we have an easy trail trough grass and trees to the Hoellentalangerhut where we will have lunch.

After lunch we hike back, but this time along the bottom of the canyon, right next to the river and it"s waterfalls (Hoellentalklamm) until we reach Hammersbach again.

We take the train (not BOB) at 8:32 to Mittenwald to arrive at 9:54 in Garmisch. We intend to use one or several Bayern-Tickets and will be back at Munich HBF at 18:30

 

Who can come?

Everyone who can manage a 5 hour hike with 2,5 hours of ascent.

You should have surefootedness and should not be afraid of heights!! 

Have a look at the pictures i linked. You should feel comfortable hiking such trails.

AND: you should wear good and robust hiking shoes for safety reasons!

Also it might be a good idea to have a rainjacket with you. Inside Hoellentalklamm it can get really wet!!!

Here are lots images of what we can expect:
