Tour description:

Probably one of the most beautiful paths in Reit im Winkl leads to the "Chiemseeschau" viewpoint on the 1062 m high Walmberg. We hike from the church to the water lily pond/ barefoot path to the War Memorial Chapel and over the Amthorsteig trail to the Eckkapelle chapel (869m), built in 1710.

On a very nice small climb we now hike eastwards up to the Chiemseeschau viewpoint and enjoy the view out to the "Bavarian Sea", Lake Chiemsee. There are two ways home to choose from: Via the Pötschbichl into the valley or down the road to a turn-off to the right to Entfelden and back to the starting point.

Note: good shoes are recommended, there are beautiful motifs for photo enthusiasts
