Rising 2.686 meters above sea level, climbing the via ferrata up this pyramidal peak in the Northern Limestone Alps of Bavaria is a perfect way to spend the day in this scenic south German region.
The Alpspitze is perhaps the best known and one of the most attractive mountains in Bavaria’s Northern Limestone Alps. Its pyramidal peak is easily seen from the nearby village of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, making it a bit of a local icon. Getting up and down on the via ferrata only takes about six hours and no previous experience is required, the guide can show you everything you need to know the day of your trip.
During the summer, the weather in this region is usually pleasant with average temperatures around 20ºC, but this is also when the most rain falls. During the spring and autumn, temperatures are closer to 13ºC and there is a bit less rain.
This via ferrata trip only takes one day. However, there are loads of other things to see and do in this part of Germany, so spending more time is not a problem at all.
The best time to climb the via ferrata in this region is between April and October.
Unfortunately due to the weather condition we need to cancel. Rudi was very helpful and responsive.
Thanks.. will try again
I loved my excursion! Rudi is a great guide who has been guiding for over a decade and has a lot of experience–yet was incredibly patient with me as more of a novice climber. For purposes of this tour, Rudi is also from the area and had a lot of local insights. Thanks for the great experience, Rudi and explore-share 🙂
Guide was Reini.
He guided us at just the perfect speed to be back in 5 hours at the alpspitzbahn top station.
Great experience – first via ferrata!
A perfect day!
Was a great tour! We did Geierwand Klettersteig instead of Alpspitze due to snowy conditions, and guide was Moritz Filger.
Rudi is a fantastic guide. He speaks fluent English! He is interested in who you are, he motivates you in a relax way and gives you a helping hand. He was a great instructor for a group of women. Rudi thinks about safety as well. I will hire him the next time!
