Through Höllental valley (Höllentalklamm gorge) to Zugspitze
Probably the most famous and most difficult route to climb Germany’s highest mountain, Mount Zugspitze. A high Alpine tour including a glacier and fixed rope routes, which is one of the most varied and, in terms of nature, most impressive tours in the Wetterstein mountain range.
From Hammersbach on you follow the wild mountain stream through the impressive, easy to walk, Höllentalklamm gorge. Follow it all the way up to the Alpine hut Höllentalangerhütte, which in the middle of the high Alpine vistas offers a cozy place to spend the night. This way you can spread the hike up to Germany’s highest mountain across two days. You will cross the Höllentalanger, which is a bit wider, on a short fixed rope route to Höllentalferner, a glacier, which is now small, but must not be underestimated. There are still crevasses, which should be approached with respect. After that, you will follow another fixed rope route, which takes you almost vertically up the tall rock face nearly all the way up to the summit. For your return down to the valley you can then take the easy route down in the Eibsee cable car or the rack railway.
