Top 3 Sights in Farchant

Idyllisches Farchant

Farchant is situated about 3 kilometres northeast of Garmisch-Partenkirchen. This idyllic little town is well situated to visit various sights in the Garmisch-Partenkirchen region. Farchant has a lot to offer in summer as well as in winter.

Farchant is an ideal starting point for hiking tours and swimming trips to the lakes. A highlight of Farchant is simply the beautiful mountain world with its nature and the waterfalls which welcome you to walk along.

Top 1 : The Kuhfluchtwasserfälle

To the east of Farchant the Kuhfluchtwasserfälle are situated ( literally translated: " cow escape waterfalls "), beautifully embedded in the mountains. For nature and hiking lovers, this adventure trail along the stream up to the spectacular waterfalls is a natural highlight for every holiday. The hiking trails are well paved and in the village of Farchant there are many opportunities to stop after the tour.

The car park on the Farchant forest adventure trail is a starting point for the hike. From there the waterfalls are 1.3 kilometres away. The ascent along the stream is not particularly steep and is therefore intended for everyone and every age.


Difficulty of the tour: Easy

Altitude: 200 meters to walk

Length: 1.3 kilometers

Ascent: 1 hour for relaxed hikes

Top 2: The mountain Hoher Fricken

Hoher Fricken is the name of the over 1900 metre high mountain in the neighbourhood of Farchant and the Kuhflucht waterfalls.

The ascent to the Hohe Fricken is basically the extension of the tour to the Kuhflucht waterfalls. While the hike to the bridge at the waterfalls is very easy, the ascent then really starts. From this point the tour is more suitable for experienced hikers. The ascent becomes steeper and steeper and the paths are no longer developed. Reward for the ascent: unique view of the Wetterstein mountains.


Difficulty of the tour: Advanced

Height meters: 1270 meters to walk

Distance: 13 kilometers

Ascent: about 4 hours

Top 3: The mountain Wank

Southeast of Farchant, 8 kilometers away, we find the mountain Wank. It has a height of 1780 above sea level.

A mountain tour on the Wank is especially interesting for nature lovers who prefer a somewhat easier hike than the tour on the Hohe Fricken. From the Wank you have a wonderful view of the Wetterstein mountains.

Difficulty of the tour: moderate

Altitude: 950 meters to walk

Distance: 5 kilometers

Ascent: between 2 and 3 hours
