Running atop Garmisch: Kramerplateauweg - Almhütte
This is a panoramic trail that runs horizontal to Mount Kramer and along well-maintained hiking paths. There are no major ascents or descents. You have numerous possibilities to make the tour shorter or longer.
At the beginning of this running tour, you will discover the old centre of Garmisch. The traditional facade paintings, the so-called Lüftlmalereien, and the often symbolic character of the paintings will escort you. The route will then continue a short distance uphill to Mount Kramer. In running along the southern slopes of Mount Kramer, you will reach Maximilianshöhe and its popular Alpine hut “Almhütte”. Because of the delicious pastry puffs that it offers, the hut is also called Windbeutel-Alm. 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.
