A60 Garmisch-Partenkirchen » Linderhof
  |   7h35   |   28.4 km   |   953 m   |   722 m

This is, admittedly, a very long stage, but it leads across very varied terrain from the lovely Pflegersee lake over the breathtaking mountain world of the western Ammer range to the almost untouched Elmaugrieß. And the grand finale: Castle Linderhof, the former residence of Ludwig II, King of Bavaria.

Detailed route description
Natural and cultural heritage
Other long-distance trails and alternative routes
Possible to take the Karmersteig track via the Kramerspitz to the Stepbergalm and Rothmoosalm meadows. Owing to the great difference in altitude, however, this is much more strenuous and time-consuming than the normal route.

    Hotel Linderhof is an extremely popular tourist hotel. It is very expensive, and MUSt be pre-booked some days in advance. Ther is no alternate accomodation

    Alternative für Genießer: Ab Garmisch auf dem Kramerplateauweg entlang der Südseite des Kramers bis zum Abzweig zur Stepberg-Alm. Dann auf teils steilem Wald- und Bergpfad Aufstieg zur Stepberg-Alm mit hinreißender Aussicht auf den Wetterstein mit Zugspitze. Nach lohnender Einkehr auf der wunderschön gelegenen Alm weiter in Richtung Rothmoos-Alm zur Normalroute. Weniger ermüdende Fahrwege und kaum länger.

    Alternative for connoisseurs: From Garmisch on Kramerplateauweg along the southern branch to step up to the Kramers-Alm. Then on some steep forest and mountain climbing path for Step-Alm with enchanting views of the Wetterstein with Zugspitze. After worthwhile stop on the beautifully located pasture and toward Roth Moss Alm to normal route. Less tiring routes and hardly longer.
