Tour description

The starting point for this strenuous tour is the center of Krün, accessible by the bus stop "Ortsmitte Krün". From there you turn directly into the Krottenkopfstraße and
follow the signs for the Krüner Alm, through the fascinating Finzbachklamm gorge, to the left at the fork, on the forest road to the "Am Graben" junction. Here, take the center trail toward the Krüner Alm alpine hut. At the supplies cableway (only for the Krüner Alm), climb the ascent to the Krüner Alm alpine hut, with a fantastic panorama. Behind the hut, the route continues on a narrow climb through an alpine bowl to the Michelfeld plateau, from which the alpine hut on the Krottenkopf can already be seen. After crossing this somewhat rocky field, climb a steep rise, keeping to the left, and arrive at the Weilheimer Hütte alpine hut.
