Great Hike
I went on this as a solo hiker and met a lovely couple and their dog. I shortened the trip and picked up the last three days of the hike which were the best. Fabulous weather, great scenery and wonderful company.

Schöne Wanderung durch die Berge
Wir waren mit Kind (1,5 Jahre) und Hund auf der Wanderung "Rund um die Zugspitze" unterwegs. Die Strecke war sehr schön und die Wege gut begehbar. Der erste Tag war allerdings sehr anstrengend und ging steil bergauf. Man hätte aber auch die Seilbahn nehmen können. An den folgenden Tagen haben wir die Strecken verkürzt und so an uns angepasst. Wir hatten eine sehr schöne Zeit! Die Hotels waren allesamt sehr gut, freundlich und sauber.

Sehr schöne Wanderung mit guten Hotels
Die ausgearbeiteten Routen sind wie gewöhnlich bei Eurohike gut beschrieben. Die Hotels waren für 3 Sterne sehr gut. Diese Wanderung ist wirklich top. Wir werden auf alle Fälle wieder bei Eurohike buchen.
