Ascent from Elmau Hotel via “Wettersteinalm” and”Schachentor” (“Schachen-Gate”).
(Duration 3½ hours approximately)

The trail starts at the Hikers´Car park (Wanderparkplatz) near Elmau-Hotel and follow the so called “King´s Trail” up to “Wettersteinalm”. From there, the path climbs steadily along impressive walls of rock up to the “Schachen-Gate” (mountain ridge).
