This easy ski tour takes us to an outstanding panoramic mountain above the Walchensee. As soon as we have reached the summit of the Herzogstand with its pavilion üover only gently sloping to moderately steep slopes on the south to south-east side, we are offered a magnificent view of the Karwendel and the foothills of the Alps. With the Herzogstandhaus, we also have an almost year-round catered refreshment stop (holiday from around mid-November to Christmas), which allows us to pack our backpacks a little lighter, because we can have our snack there. The orientation is mainly easy, as a large part of the ascent is on the edge of the ski slopes.
