Friends of climbing and mountaineers are probably the ones who can make a lot of preliminary decisions with the online route planner for the Alps and the vivid 3D map. The mountain tours and their respective variants with regard to altitude, difficulty and duration require thorough planning and a visual impression of the landscape proves to be extremely helpful. A challenging and popular mountain tour leads through the Höllental to the Zugspitze. The right equipment from crampons to rockfall helmets should not be missing.

Hiking tours in the numerous slopes, hills and mountains of the Alpine landscape offer an almost endless selection. With our tour planner you can make an intelligent pre-selection with sensible waypoints. The Kampenwand in the Chiemgau Alps is a popular and diverse hiking area. It is only 1669 m high and depending on your wishes you can get a very detailed overview via our online tour planner for the Alps. How about the flat panorama tour? Or maybe it could be the longer hike on the Höhenweg to finally reward yourself with a view of Hohenaschau Castle? You will also find numerous alpine pastures and viewpoints, as well as the Kampenwand cable car.

Cycling through the Alps requires leg strength and endurance. Ideally, you should take a close look at the outdoor maps for your desired tour. There you can find your way around optimally, but you can also look for special challenges or avoid difficult spots. Not only the hike at the Herzogstand, but also the bike tour in the area is recommended. It is a rather demanding mountain bike tour from Kesselberg to Kochelsee and finally up to the Herzogstand at 1731 meters above sea level.

On tour in the Alps: what needs to be considered?

If you want to hike in the Alps for the first time, then you should keep an eye on the peculiarities there and adapt to the circumstances. A first question concerns the time of year when you plan your tour through the Alps. The altitude you want to reach should also play a role in planning. While in winter the conditions are more ideal for skiers than for hikers, the best time for hiking is in the summer months. As an ideal time, we recommend the weeks from September, in which the Alps show their best side. 


The online tour planner is ideal for preparing your hiking tour, as objective sources of danger can be identified more easily. With the photo-realistic 3D maps, you can identify risk areas for falling rocks or even avalanches and select safe routes. Technical equipment and good planning are one thing, very practical preparations are another. Sturdy shoes, weather-appropriate clothing and aids such as hiking poles or a helmet are mandatory in the mountains. You can also find out what you need where and what local surprises await you in the form of narrow paths, dense forests, rock faces or mountain ridges via the online route planner for the Alps and the detailed outdoor maps. 


With our outdoor app you are even provided with the 3D views offline without a mobile connection. Equipped like this, you will surely reach one stage after the other. Don't forget your camera and enough food - but you can also enjoy a hearty meal in many places in one of the idyllic mountain huts with viewpoints. We wish you lots of fun in the Alps!
