Ammergauer Alpen

Description

Ammergauer Alpen

The Ammergauer Alpen is a lesser known area on the north side of the Alps. The area forms the border between Austria and Germany. Three quarters of the region is located in Germany, and has been declared a protected nature reserve. To the west lies the popular and well known Allgäuer Alps. And on the eastern side you will find the Bayerische Voralpen and Wettersteingebirge. The south side borders to the Lechtal in Austria.

The area is accessible from the towns of Füssen (familiar sound for tourists traveling to and from Austria) and Oberammergau.

Like other parts of the Northern Alps, the rock formations are of a limestone type, mainly Dolomite. Barren ridges rise from the steep wooded valleys. These ridges are generally easy to walk, and steep passages are secured with cables etc. Popular with hikers is the Hochplatten-Tegelberg-Gruppe. Daniel is the highest mountain, 2340 m. Klammspitze (1985 m) is an other popular summit. The huts are usually open until november, often even longer.

A long distance trail through the Ammergauer Alps is the E4, which in fact coincides with the Maximiliansweg.
