Action, fun and beeing close to nature : For a great adventure, you don't necessarily have to get on a plane with your family. Our family tours are all about getting out of everyday life, into the weekend.
"The journey is the destination"," is the motto of this family adventure of a special kind. Through selected huts and "special highlights", this hiking tour becomes an exciting and fun experience for young and old.
Together with other families we celebrate this mountain adventure. We hike to a rustic hut in the Ammertal and visit the fairytale castle of King Ludwig II. As a crowning finale, we are facing a rapid descent with the summer toboggan run on the piston.
This weekend tour is suitable for children from 7 years of age, depending on their level of development.
The tour price includes accommodation as well as travel by bus and the summer toboggan run.
We meet in Oberammergau at the train station. After a joint equipment check, the bus takes you through the scenic and original Ammertal to Linderhof Castle. The Bavarian king Ludwig II. once resided here. We will not miss a visit to this fairytale castle. After we got an insight into the life of king Ludwig II., the exhausting part of the day begins. We hike comfortably up to the Brunnenkopfhütte. If we are a little lucky, we might discover a capercaillie along the way. In order to make the ascent to the hut more entertaining, the hut owners Norbert and Irmi have come up with a great questionnaire. We try to answer this on the way. 2-3 hours and 670 meters later we reach our current accommodation, the rustic Brunnenkopfhütte, which was also visited by our King Ludwig. We end the evening comfortably with invigorating hut food and look forward to the next day. Ascent 680 hm, distance 5,5km.
After an invigorating breakfast, we hike along a scenic high-altitude trail in the direction of Hennenkopf. Maybe we can spot one or the other chamois on the way. Our path always leads us along the ridge to the Pürschlinghaus. The cozy and panoramic hut invites you to an extended rest and we strengthen ourselves with homemade treats. After the lunch break we soon reach the Kolbensattelhütte. Here waits the total highlihgt of the day, a rapid descent with the summer toboggan run. From the Kolbensattelhütte it goes over a length of 2,600 meters with breathtaking views and adventurous curves into the valley. The track reaches the top speed of 40km/h and overcome. We hike together through Oberammergau to the train station. And an eventful weekend, which presented us a lot of beautiful memories, comes to an end. Ascent 300hm, distance 9kms 400hm.
