GEOGRAPHER HIGHLIGHT HIKE: WATZMANN (2713m) advanced
Hi all alpine friends,
HIGHLIGHT HIKE: WATZMANN THE GIANT IN THE BERCHTESGADENER LAND.
First a short info why I call my events Geographer Hikes. I am a professional geographer and not a hobby hiking host.
I am working all around the globe between Chile and China and I guess I am a little bit familar with outdoor activities. And it is easy for me to organise groups of 20, 30 or even more people. :-)
The Watzmann is a majestic mountain over Königssee and a beautiful tour with awesome views over the mountain and down to the Königssee!
The Hocheck Protected content the lowest pike in the Watzmann massif is technically relativly easy but anyway an advanced and demanding tour.
The next section to the Watzmann Mittelspitze Protected content is difficult! You need to cliimb and be absolutely free of fear of height because it goes over the ridge.
Hocheck would be a beautiful tour as well.
Height difference. Protected content Protected content Hocheck)
From Ramsau parking Wimbachbrücke to Watzmannhaus Protected content . Here you can wait if you won´t go on.
From Watzmannhaus to Hocheck Protected content
and further to Mittelspitze Protected content .
This tour has as all my tours usually does "sections". So you can choose if you go to Watzmannhaus, Hocheck or Mittelspitze.
And be aware that you have to go back by feet! There is no cable car. :-)
This is a really advanced and demanding tour.
I made it last year in 4h to Mittelspitze I guess we should try it in 6h.
At the moment I can´t fix the exact date.
That´s clear because we depend hardly on good weather. A good period for this hike will be end of August and September.
When you sign in be aware that I will fix the exact date in short term in summer.
If you are interessted sign in!
This tour is a good check if you are fit for Zugspitze.
I don´t describe required equipment. Because when you don´t know how to make such tours and aren´t aware about hiking in alpine regions...make the next easier tour with us. This one it is not for beginners!!!
We go early in the morning by car. Leaving Munich at 6:00 starting in Ramsau at 7:30.
This is not a guided tour and you attend on your own risk!
