This snowshoe tour with Zipfelbob on the Hörnle is an absolute insider tip: Few other tours in the foothills of the Alps already offer such a magnificent panorama during the entire ascent. Across snow-covered open spaces and magical stretches of forest, the view of the Ammergau Alps becomes even more beautiful with every metre of altitude climbed. This panoramic tour is a must for all Alpine lovers!

Our Zipfelbob tour starts at the parking lot of the Hörnlebergbahn. Here, one of our trained guides will welcome you and explain the proper use of snowshoes and poles. The snowshoe tour goes on a moderate incline over open areas past forest sections. The ascent to the Hörnle is very varied through a beautiful mountain landscape with many passages that allow great views towards the valley and the Ammergau Alps.

A little below the mountain peak we reach the Hörnlehütte. It invites you to enjoy regional specialities and the great view in a cosy hut atmosphere. If you would like to end the ascent here, you have the option of stopping off at the hut, which is open all year round.

For the physically stronger, the trail continues to the summit. Over an open slope, the path leads another 100 HM upwards. From here you can enjoy the magnificent 360° panorama. The view of the foothills of the Alps, dotted with its lake landscape, all the way to the Zugspitze, is worth the climb. Now also the summit strikers can whiz to the hut with a stop on the Zipfelbob.

4.5km long, groomed toboggan run back to our starting point, the parking lot of the Hörnlebahn. Don't miss this jewel of snowshoe tours! Contact us and we will plan a wonderful excursion together with you, where everyone will get their money's worth.

    Many thanks for this great tour! The organisation was top and despite moderate weather we had a lot of fun. Our guide Leo and hospitant Theresa were very considerate and brought us to the hut in a good mood. The highlight was of course the downhill run with the Zipfel bob, which we can only recommend 🙂 .
    Greetings Nadine and Magdalena
