The Wank Mountain offers one of the easiest hikes around Garmisch-Partenkirchen but still packs a punch in terms of the activities and the sheer view of the Alps seen from the summit. The mountain was once called “the Edge mountain” since it lies on the edge of the Garmisch-Partenkirchen valley- offering a view of the western faces of the Karwendel ranges and the northern face of the Wetterstein range. The Estergebirge to the north and the Ammergau mountains in the west complete the view.

The mountain stands tall at 5840 feet above the mean sea level and even though the Wankbahn cable-car rides are available to reach the summit, many people love to hike to the top to truly absorb the view all around. Mountain-biking and paragliding are common activities here since the mountain has an easier terrain compared to other mountains but is still challenging enough to get your adrenaline pumping.

The mountains have a history of their own. Before the Roman period, this was a wild area with a thick forest cover of fir, spruce and pine trees. However, during the Roman period, this place was deforested and used as a grazing ground for cattle, sheep, and horses. The area is under conservation currently but its pathways that are reminiscent of “Heidi” and grasslands that undulate for acres with wildflowers and tall trees, have made it one of the best places to leave the city life behind and enjoy the magnificent outdoors. The summit has a number of restaurants where you can end your visit before taking a cable car ride back to the town. If you want to spend a night here, try to find accommodation at one of the nearby cottages.
