The Kapellensteig is a moderately difficult hike peppered with culture!
The starting point is the Reit im Winkl ballroom , Tirolerstr. 37 (easy parking), with a wonderful view of the Kaiser Mountains. From the sports field to the church, old Chiemgau farms with interesting facade paintings and beautiful flower balcony decorations line the busy streets. As an alternative to the Reit im Winkler sports and culture program, the numerous pretty little shops also invite you to go shopping.
Past the Pankratius Church (sacral museum in the tower), the picturesque old Dorfgasse (Hausbergstrasse) goes uphill. At the end turn right towards the corner chapel. Now continue to a fork in the road at a gate, turn right onto path no. 61 in the direction of Pötschbauer . From here ascent to Walmberg . Over a wide gravel path it goes up the path no. 6 (15min) to the Chiemseeblick ! The view of the valley from the rest bench is very impressive! On path no.5 you go back towards the corner chapel (beautiful, valuable old frescoes) a worthwhile destination and at the same time a place of rest and relaxation!
In the direction of the valley it goes over an initially wide, then narrow Wurzelsteig along rocks to a turn onto the Scheffelsteig, which meanders up and down through the forest for a while (gentian blossom in spring!). Rest benches made of wood invite you to linger and the view rests over the valley basin of Reit im Winkl with its landmark, the Pankratius Church with a Bavarian baroque onion dome!
Alternatively, at the Scheffelsteig junction along the Kreuzweg (avenue with old maple trees), you can reach the center of the village in about 20 minutes (shortcut).
Path no. 1 leads directly into the town center. We turn right over a narrow path , through a turnstile and then over steps to the bridge at the Hausberg waterfall ! You can marvel at the 1st Chiemgau via ferrata , which stretches up impressive and steep alpine terrain. With a little luck you can see brave climbers! The path leads us over the idyllic war memorial chapel (breathtaking view of the town center with church tower) to the barefoot park with Kneipp facility (just take off your shoes!) And the water lily pond with a view of the Kaiser !
From here we hike to the evangelical church . At the end of the path, branch off to the left via the mini golf course and Hausbachwegerl to the starting point.
