Kampenwand is a 1669m peak in the Bavarian Apls. Its summit cross is known to be the largest in the Bavarian Alps. It has a small skiing spot and there is a trail which leads to the top of the summit.
The mountain is around 1.5 hours drive from Munich city. From the base of the mountain there is a cable care which takes you to the top. The views from the cable care are breathtaking, especially the amazing colors of the pine trees.
There is a restaurant there which has a very scenic view. It is a modern restaurant with typical Bavarian menu. There are rooms there which can be rented. Spending a night on the mountain seems to be great idea. Website
The trail to the summit starts from the restaurant and for most of the part is easy. Easy enough for us to take our one year old in a stroller.
The trail is approximately 2 km long and should take around 30 to 45 mins depending on your speed and stamina. Along the way the trail offers beautiful views of Chiemsee which has a famous palace build by King Ludwig of Bavaria. (I will write a short one about the palace soon)
The trail ends or rather the easy part ends near the start of the skiing resort. From there on-wards its a steep climb to the summit. There is a small restaurant and 2 interesting huts. The huts are built between the rocks and look beautiful.
As we were with our baby we ended our hike here as there was no way we could take the stroller to the summit.
Hope you have a great time this summer in Bavaria!
