Alpine Walk
Walderalm

Sprawling flower meadows, the majestic Karwendel Mountain Range in the background and a charming ensemble of alpine cabins. Welcome to Walderalm Alpine Farm at Gnadenwald. "All seasons of the year are pretty up here, but early summer is best”, confirm many Walderalm visitors. As soon as summer arrives in the higher regions, the vast alpine pastures burst into bloom with alternating arrangements of buttercups, cuckoo cloves, cotton grass, red clover, forget me nots and daisies. The grazing area extends over the flat mountain ridge of Walderkamm to Vomperbach.
