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