Hike along the Kramerplateau trail above Garmisch-Partenkirchen
A nice tour at the foot of Mount Kramer with beautiful views and along well-maintained hiking paths. There are no major ascents or descents. You have numerous possibilities to make the tour shorter by using one of the paths leading back into the valley.
On this hike, you will discover the old centre of Garmisch. Take your time for the traditional facade paintings, the so called Lüftlmalereien, to spot the details and the often symbolic character of the paintings. The route will then continue uphill to Mount Kramer. Walking on the southern slopes of Mount Kramer, you will reach Maximilianshöhe and its popular Alpine hut “Almhütte”. On your way back, you will see the memorial chapel for soldiers (Kriegergedächtniskapelle) as well as Garmisch’s old church “Alte Kirche”. This church is very interesting because of the rediscovered 15th century wall paintings that were created long before the Bavarian baroque era. This is why the discovered paintings are something special in the north of the Alps.
