Make a refreshment stop at the Höllentalangerhütte cottage and enjoy wonderful views on the highest peak of Germany – Zugspitze (2962 m).
The next POI is about 6.2 km (or 1:57 hour) distant. From the cottage turn left and head in the direction of Kreuzeck cableway upper station. The trail rises slowly and is very pleasant. While hiking, occasionally stop for a while and look backwards to admire panoramic views from another angles. Upon reaching the highest elevation point you will notice for a while the Osterfelder cableway station (situated under Alpspitze peak). It is an incredible majestic view. However, continue in the opposite direction, down to the Kreuzeckhaus.
