On the heels of the pioneers – through the Reintal to the Zugspitze
One of the most famous ascents to the Zugspitze begins with the wild and romantic Partnach gorge and continues through the visually spectacular Rein valley via the Schneeferner (glacier) to the summit of the Zugspitze.
This trail truly takes you in historic footsteps: this was the route taken in 1820 by the second lieutenant Josef Naus, the first man to reach the summit of the Zugspitze. A breathtaking beginning through the Partnach gorge lead on to further Alpine highlights: the ascent through the Rein valley is one of the most beautiful routes to the Zugspitze summit. This route is also one of the longest, but makes up for this by being slightly less demanding and is very well signposted. With the Reintalanger and Knorr huts offering the chance for lunch and/or overnight stops, you can this tailor this trail individually into one or two day stages.
