The perfect mountain for beginners. You don’t need to be a seasoned mountaineer on a trip to the Osterfelderkopf mountain.

You don’t need to be a seasoned mountaineer on a trip to the Osterfelderkopf mountain. On the contrary, this mountain allows even beginners to enjoy the fresh alpine air. Wide paths and secured sections mean there's no need to worry. Even little ones can take part in hiking trips. The easy trail involves going up to the 1638-metre-high Kreuzeck mountain with the Kreuzeckbahn cable car. After a small break at the Hochalm cabin, it’s up to the Osterfelderkopf. A hearty snack at the "Restaurant Alpspitz" and the beautiful panorama of the Alpspitze mountain make for a good reward for children and adults after a rigorous hike. You can reach the Osterfelderkopf with the Bayerischen Zugspitzbahn (BZB) railway. Arriving with DB means you receive a 10 percent discount. Holders of a regional day ticket for Bavaria can use it on the BZB up to Hammersbach.
