Discover the alpine pastures! You should plan about 3 ½ hours of walking time to complete the approx­imately 7-kilometre-long tour that begins and ends at the Hemmer­sup­penalm. You can take a relaxing break at the Hinden­burghütte, Sulzn­erkaser or the Straubinger Haus. The highlight of the tour is the view from the cross called Schuh­mach­erkreuz of the town Reit im Winkl and the surrounding mountains. You should wear sturdy footwear and hiking clothes.

You will start the hike on a trail that takes you past the chapel called Anna Kapelle and then head to the Straubinger Haus. After reaching a rock spring, the trail will lead you uphill to the Schuh­mach­erkreuz (1665 m) where you will have a spec­tacular view of Reit im Winkl, Lake Chiemsee and the Kais­ergebirge mountains. You will then turn west, walking down a trail that leads past pastures on the way to Straubinger Haus. After reaching the house, you will follow the trail that leads back to Hemmer­sup­penalm.
