In the summer season, countless hiking trails and alpine tours await you in the area Garmisch-Classic. Explore the summit- and the pleasure-adventure-trail or experience breathtaking views from the viewing platform AlpspiX, which is also open in the winter season.

A popular round trip begins at the Alpspitzbahn cable car, which leads to the 2,050 m high Osterfelderkopf. Then you can either take the Hochalmbahn cable car down to 1,700 m or in summer go down the idyllic route on foot (approx. 1 hour walk). From the Hochalm, all visitors hike in around 30 minutes to the mountain station of the Kreuzeckbahn cable car, where the final highlight is the descent. At the end of an impressive day of mountain and hiking, the casual café-bar „Kandahar 2" in the valley station rewards you with cool drinks and snacks.
