Highlights under the free sky

The Kolbensattel offers a unique setting for mountain church services.

At 1,270 m above sea level, you can hold alpine masses in the unique natural scenery of the Ammergau Alps, on a site specially reserved for this purpose, away from the hustle and bustle. From the “alpine mass site” you have a nice view into the valley and the surrounding mountains. The site can be reached in approximately 10 min. from the exit of the Kolbensesselbahn chairlift, without obstacles or steps. Therefore, it is also suitable for wheelchair users and persons with mobility problems.

The ascent to the Kolbensattel can be undertaken conveniently with the Kolbensesselbahn chairlift oor on foot in approximately 1 hour via a forest road. There are two options for the return to the valley. Those who like things rapid can get into the Alpine Coaster a weather-resistant toboggan run that snakes its way into the valley over a distance of 2.6 km. Those who like things more calm can float gently and cosily down with the Kolbensesselbahn chairlift.

Culinary enjoyment is ensured at the Kolbensattel Lodge with regional products. There is space there for 100 people on the large sun terrace when the weather is good. However, the cosy parlour also offers space for 130 guests. Since the Kolbensattel Lodge is a musician-friendly inn, music groups are also welcome.

As further attractions, the Kolbensattel offers an alpine adventure playground in direct proximity to the Kolbensattel Lodge and a climbing forest. Along with a ride on the Alpine Coaster, we can also offer you an interesting programme for an acolyte or parochial trip.
