Mountain bike rides
Attention: This bike tour should only be tackled by the utterly fit with solid off-road experience - the steep gravelled sections are not to be underestimated, both uphill and downhill! Keep your distance from grazing cattle and cross the area calmly and quickly. Families better take the plenty tours around the nearby Gaistal alpine paradise.
But if you are looking for a real challenge in the saddle, this demanding bike tour to the Rauthhütte is definitely the right choice: From the (chargeable) Munde car park in the Leutasch hamlet of Moos, the ascent starts immediately to the right of the Mundestadl into the forest. Follow the gravel path steeply but with few bends uphill - keep right at the first junction, left at the second.
The last third of the demanding trail then distracts you from the burning calves with impressive panoramic views, after which you finally reach the delicious rest at the foot of the Hohe Munde. The "Kuchl" of the Rauthhütte really does live up to its many culinary awards - there are homemade delicacies with old traditional recipes, dumpling variations to melt away and homemade cakes that are always worth a sweet sin.
Ein kleines Stück weiter genießt man vom Aussichtspunkt Zugspitzblick zudem echt malerische Weitsicht über das Wettersteingebirge und – natürlich – bis zur majestätischen Zugspitze. Den Rückweg bitte unbedingt mit entsprechender Vorsicht abfahren - gerade auf den Steilstücken kann der Schotter leicht ins Rutschen kommen, auch Weidevieh begegnet man mitunter.
A little further on, from the Zugspitzblick vantage point, you can enjoy a truly picturesque view over the Wetterstein mountains and - of course - all the way to the majestic Zugspitze. Please be careful on the way back - especially on the steep stretches the gravel can easily start to slide, also always keep an eye out for grazing cattle.
