No 8. in Germany
John P September 2016
Positive The route goes through some fantastic scenery with views across Germany to the north and the higher alps to the south. There are lots of mountain huts for refreshment and a variety of alternative routes. In the valleys there are pretty towns with geraniums in window boxes, churches with funny spires, and castles.
Negative The route is tough with ascents and descents of over 1000m most days, and after you have toiled and sweated your way up to many summits you meet lots of people at the top who took the cable car or cog railway. In September I found the route very busy with all the accommodation booked in some cases. There is a lot of waymarking but you rarely see any reference to Maximiliansweg.
