A guided walk programme is organised by your Inghams Rep and payable locally. The following programme is shown as a guide only and is subject to change.
The Lakes of Mittenwald / 12km / Easy
After a short walk through the typically beautiful Barvian town of Mittenwald, this walk starts to climb up towards the Sankt Anton Gasthaus through the woods that give Mittenwald its name. The trail continus up to the top of the Kranzberg where, looking back over the town, we are treated to incredible views of the towering Karwendel peaks.
