Guided hiking tours

Even the German poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe captured a central point of hiking with the quote “Only where you were on foot, you really were”. The GaPa Tourism board offers guided hikes to the most beautiful points in the area. For more information and the programme, please contact our reception team.


Two peaks, one ticket

2-summit tour

Discover new horizons and get deep insights, all this is possible with the ticket for the 2 summit tour. The Zugspitze awaits you with its spectacular view over the Alpine peaks of four different countries. On the Alpspitze you can expect an extraordinary viewing platform as well as the exciting summit experience trail. It is not for nothing that the Alpspitze is also called the jewel of the Werdenfelser Land.
