Tour description:

From the tourist information you start in the direction of Wimmerkreuz, past the glacier mill field, a natural sight in Reit im Winkl. Silent contemporary witnesses, remnants from primeval times are embedded along the way. Under very old linden trees there is a quiet place for a rest.

Shortly after the junction on the left, the path meanders across a large open meadow and you are in the Entfelden district. Turning off the Fliederweg, your leisurely walk leads uphill a little and you set off on the Maria-Hellwig-Trail, dedicated to our famous singer and actress in the local theater from Reit im Winkl. Take a rest on the singer's favorite bench. It was dedicated to her because she loved being in this special place, it was her "favourite place" so to speak. Walk straight ahead on Schwimmbadstraße. After the outdoor pool, a narrow path leads directly to the cemetery, where the artist now rests in peace. Walk back to the starting point via the Kurpark.

Refreshments available: Villa Mittermeier, restaurants in town
