Forecast

Everywhere in Central Europe, school has started again, as has the striving for good grades! If we were to give the weather on Monday a grade, it should be the best grade possible! The day will start with a fresh, clear morning before the sun will blaze down all day from a cloudless sky and ensure temperatures climb to summer-like values in the afternoon.

Tendency

The showers of a weather front will reach us Tuesday night. The weather will then improve again, however.

Behind the Pfaffenhofer Alm, the trail climbs higher and higher via a series of sharp bends. After about 45 minutes you come to a fork where you follow the signs to Sonnkarköpfl. Once you’ve left the forest, the trail leads through barren terrain at first across a north-facing slope, then via a cirque on a southwest-facing slope to the summit. From the Sonnkarköpfl you retrace your steps and follow the fork "Oberhofer Melkalm" heading east. Here you hike over extensive fields of alpine roses downhill to the Sonnkarhütte (no service) and continue across alpine meadows to the Oberhofer Melkalm. You then take the Bettlersteig trail behind the hut which brings you back to the starting point at the Pfaffenhofer Alm.

Tips | Notes: You can purchase a driving permit at Pfaffenhofen town hall or at the Pfaffenhofer Alm and save 2h 30min. You can drive up in a standard car but be aware that after heavy rain the road may be hard to drive and an all-terrain vehicle is recommended.
