Tour description:

Festsaal Reit im Winkl - Glapfhof - Wetterkreuz - Hutzenalm - Stoibenmöseralm - vantage point - view "Tauernblick and Chiemseeblick" - Liebberg-Forsthütte - Wasserfallsteig - Kriegerkapelle - starting point

The certified premium hiking trail "Chiemseeblick"starts at the ballroom in Reit im Winkl . The hiker follows the asphalted roads for a short distance to turn past the Glapfhof into the exciting Wetterkreuzweg (No. 31). The path meanders along a small streamin tightly winding serpentines . In some insured passages, the route continues towards the Wetterkreuz . With a view of Kaiser, Steinberge and Hohe Tauern , it is one of the most beautiful viewpoints that Reit im Winkl has to offer.

First it goes back over steps and then left on a leisurely forest hiking path . This later leads off to the left, idyllically along a stream and to the Hutzenalm . Here you will find the best cheese dumplings and the best Kaiserschmarren far and wide. The "Chiemseeblick" leads on an alpine road to a path that turns left. Across the forest and a meadow, you tackle a steep section of path, the "old path". This ends on the area of the Stoibenmöseralm . You can’t get enough of the sensational view that is offered above all on a hilltop to the right above the Alm. There is an excellent vantage point with wooden benches. Down on the Alm there are typical alpine snacks.

After this stop, the path leads behind the Alm to the next destination, the "Tauern- und Chiemseeblick" viewpoint , which offers great views. The descent from there goes over a steep, but well-paved alpine path. Above the Hutzen-Alm , whose alpine pastures can now be reached again, turn left to the idyllic Liebberg-Forsthütte and the Glapfalm . About 25 minutes after the Glapfalm , the path branches off to the right onto a path towards Hausbachfall . With a view of Reit im Winkl and the Steinplatte, the alpine path, which is secured with wire ropes, runs down steps and stairs,some of which are carved into rock, through the gorge.

The warrior chapel is enthroned at the end of the gorge. From there it goes back to the starting point.
