Tour description

From Wallgau, just up from Krün, the route first leads to the northern shore of Barmsee lake, which sits at the edge of the forest. There is a small swimming spot here, which invites you to take a rest before shouldering your pack again. A lovely walking path takes you along the lake for about 10 min. - then continue to follow the signs toward Gerold. Flat at first, the trail later ascends a short, substantial climb out of the forest into a wonderfully beautiful flowering meadow. The trail leads to Gerold along the right-hand shore of the lake. Then follow the bike path to Klais. There, you can see parts of the ancient Roman road, the "Via Raetia." In Klais, you will return to the forest on the way to Grubsee lake. Soon you will reach the small, very idyllic swimming pond which lies hidden in the middle of the forest. From there, continue through the forest toward the "Barmsee" hotel and restaurant, on toward Krün and back to Wallgau.
