Wank mountain in Garmisch-Partenkirchen
Hiking joy for all ages
When it comes to leisurely mountain hikes with impressive views, the Wank should be your mountain of choice. The round summit of Partenkirchen’s landmark mountain at 1,780 metres above sea level is considered the sun balcony of the region. From there, you can see its famous neighbours – the Alpspitze and the Zugspitze – and even the Alpine foothills.
As a reward after your hike, the hosts of the Esterbergalm will be waiting for you. They serve traditional Bavarian delicacies like the famous and popular Kaiserschmarrn or – if you prefer something a little heartier – a “Brotzeit” (bread with cold cuts and cheese).
If you want to get to the summit without having to endure a sweat-inducing ascent: The cable car takes you from Garmisch-Partenkirchen right onto the summit!
Leisurely hike or strenuous mountain tour, on foot or by bike – with the GaPa tour planner, you can piece together your own individualised tour.
