Route: Geisterklamm - Zenzn- und Itzlkapelle - Ahrn - Gasse - Ganghofermuseum - Plaik - Obern / Moos - Katzenloch
At the beginning of the natural spectacle of the Leutasch Klamm offers the choice of either via the Gletscherschliff inn (currently closed - no restaurant service until further notice!) or past the Höllkapelle (a historic Jacob's chapel dedicated to pilgrims), each to reach the entrance of the picturesque Leutasch valley.
Then follow the road to the ruins of a former (17th century) imposing border bulwark. The path then leads to the right over the bridge past the Zenzn and Itzl chapel to the Unterleutasch church, dedicated to St. John, which invites you to linger. From now on, a few meters after the church, the trail continues to the left along the crystal-clear Leutascher Ache.
In Ahrn the path changes to the other side of the valley to the still very original hamlets of Lehner and Gasse, where several of the typical farms of the valley welcome the pilgrim. Leaving the hamlet of Gasse, the Way of St. James offers an impressive view of the Hohe Munde and the Church of St. Magdalene in the foreground, which is reached after passing the Ganghofer Museum. From there you walk on, past the farm store along the Unterer Wiesenweg to the Schneiderliasnkapelle (St. Floriankapelle) in Plaik, which holds an interesting 'Santiago de Compostela story' inside.
From here on, the "Camino" runs through the districts of Obern and Moos, where you will find further sacral gems to accompany you. Via the hiking trail through the Katzenloch, you now leave the Leutasch high plateau behind you in the direction of the Inn valley.
