Tour description

This winter hike from Mittenwald to the Ederkanzel alpine tavern (1,181 m) begins at the junction of Leutascher Straße / Lauterseestraße. From here, first follow the road toward Lautersee, before occasionally steep climb to the traditional alpine tavern above Lautersee lake begins. After several steep rises toward the Ederkanzel, hikers will reach the infamous "Bavarian Curve," a steep and narrow turn, which must be particularly looked out for on the descent. After a short flat section and the subsequent final climb, you've reached the Ederkanzel alpine tavern and are rewarded with a lovely view of the surrounding valleys. Please note that this route to the Ederkanzel is not a posted sled run; use at your own risk.
