Gaistal valley - a pasture paradise

The romantically picturesque Gaistal Valley, a landscape still distinguished by the beauty of untouched nature, stretches from the hamlet of Klamm in Oberleutasch in a westerly direction to the Alpine terrain between the Mieminger and Wetterstein mountain ranges. The central starting point for hikes to mountain farms offering food and drink and to the area’s countless mountain huts and Alpine refuges are the five car parks situated between Klamm and the end of the public road beside the Salzbach stream.

This glorious high valley is, on the one hand, renowned for its many mountain pastures where animals graze during the summer months and, on the other, as a unique, pristine mountain habitat. This area still boasts vast living territories for roe deer, red deer and chamois, while golden eagles nest in the walls of the Wetterstein mountain range. The Gaistal Valley was also one of the favourite places of the renowned poet Ludwig Ganghofer, whose hunting lodge was situated above the pastures of the Tillfußalm mountain hut.

With his famous novel „Das Schweigen im Walde“, he paid a worthy tribute to the valley. He wrote many other works in his hunting lodge Hubertus, a place in which he liked to retreat, seek relaxation and indulge in his passion of hunting.
