  • On the Tegelberg you can upload or gondola (mountain - and Valley drive, or a drive available) go to the mountain station. Parking is sufficient bargaining and the Tegel mountain rail can be reached also by bus. Above, you have many opportunities to do something. There is a walking trail to get high with the possibility of the Summit cross. Many hiking trails with different routes and difficulty levels go from the Tegelberg (E.g.: in the direction of Neuschwanstein Castle or in the Valley, etc.) away. You can watch the hang gliders and paragliders during the takeoff and flight. From above, you have a very nice view of the mountains, villages and lakes. There is also possibility for something to eat and drink in the panoramic restaurant or Tegel Mountain House.

  • Magnificent weather, we are today to the Summit cross of the Branderschrofenmarschiert. It takes only a good half an hour as a non Super athletes. However you should have very good Footwear. Unfortunately, we have seen many people in sandals, or street shoes - this is not a good idea for the partly very rocky and rugged ground. Even with very young children, I would there not climb - and rather make the circuit. You will be rewarded with a fantastic views (good weather set ahead) in all directions. The views of the foothills of the Alps is particularly spectacular natural.

  • Mounted by cable car, downhill on foot at the top, magnificent views of the Valley and the Lakes, castles and the Bavarian and Austrian Alps! Hiking trails start from the top, and are well signposted there is something for everyone, from 45 minutes to 4 h the descent on foot under the heat (there is 1 h 30 to 2 h following levels) was painful despite the beautiful views
