The Hiking Trail to Zwiesel

There is a great number of hiking trails in and around Inzell. The Zwiesel in eastern Chiemgau is a tried and tested hiking destination. It is really a varied, very scenic mountain hike! The Zwiesel is with 1782 m the highest mountain of the mountain chain Staufen in Bavaria, Germany. It is located between Inzell and Bad Reichenhall in the Bavarian districts Berchtesgadener Land and Traunstein.

Several marked trails lead from Inzell (Adlgaß), Weißbach (Jochberg) and Bad Reichenhall (Listsee) to the summit of Zwiesel. The ascent of Adlgaß leads over the shady Zwieselsteig up to the Neunerluk, then east over the promising ridge to the Zwiesel. The route leads on the north side of the mountain for a long time through shady forest and is especially recommended for the high summer. The ascent is well signposted and the views impressive. From the summit of the Zwiesel - but also during the ascent - you have a great view of the lake Chiemsee, Berchtesgaden Alps over the entire Chiemgau to the Bavarian Prealps.

If you feel like it, you can also walk over to the Zennokopf (1756 m) in about 10 minutes. From the Zennokopf a descent to the Zwieselalm on the south side of the mountain is highly recommended, from there continue on the Kohleralm and back to the starting point. The Kohleralm is mostly managed in the summer, otherwise, you can also stop in the inns in Inzell and Adlgaß.

If you still have enough strength, sure-footed and free from giddiness, cross the Zwiesel and follow between the pines of the Marking to Gamsknogel (1750m), the direct neighbour of the famous Zwiesel. The Gamsknogel is much less well known and committed because the trail is relatively demanding.
