Hintertux Glacier is the place to head to for everyone who prefers spending days on the slopes over beach days on fleek, when summer is already in full swing. The ski resort offers an all-round view of the Alps from just under 3,250 m and about 60 km of slopes.
Elevated between 1,027 m and 1,701 m, the hike is among the 10 highest elevated hikes in Germany. You're facing an uphill climb of 344 vertical meters on this hike.
You're traveling a distance of 10 km on this strenuous trail. The hike is therefore not too long. The average length of all hikes in Bavaria is 46 km.
The hike is one of the family friendly trails in the region. What’s even better: You can also bring the family’s best friend on this dog friendly hike. (See all dog friendly hikes in Bavaria.)
You shouldn’t forget to bring your hiking boots. There are some sections on the trail where sturdy footwear is required. There are places to buy beverages and food along the track. However it’s always recommended to bring enough water and food along with you.
