The highest mountain in the Berchtesgaden Alps inspires mountaineers of all ages. “Many people are attracted by the sporting opportunities on the Watzmann,” says the guide. “It’s a massive mountain climb that’s on every serious mountaineer’s to-do list.” But even families with children are not daunted by this 2,713 metre high mountain. In around four hours both adults and children are able to reach the Watzmannhaus, where they can spend the night under twinkling stars.
Amongst climbers the Watzmann East Wall is a real highlight. At a height of almost 2,000 metres it is the highest wall in the eastern Alps and with its magnificent panorama it is truly a unique experience. This is why it is one of the 100 most beautiful geotopes in Bavaria – just like the Ice Chapel at the foot of the East Wall.
