Hiker’s Paradise

Hiker’s Paradise

Hiking keeps you young!

Old folk sayings have long held that hiking is good for you. It touchs on something long held as common knowledge and now it’s even been scientifically proven. New studies show: hiking at middle altitudes helps against the so-called „diseases of affluence.“ The reason behind it is Erythropoiesis, a process by which the bodies ability to transport oxygen is bettered by increased red blood cell production.

Hike with us at a variety of levels: leisurly in the valley of Ammer, on the upper path with its fantasic views, or all the way up over the tops of the Ammergauer Alps.

Many paths will lead you to the Kolbensattel and to the Kolbensattel Lodge.
