Peak Daniel Hiking Highlights

A quick tour to the peak Daniel in Lermoos / Austria. At 2340 meters, the Daniel is the highest peak in the Ammergau Alps. When you look back as you hike to the Daniel, you can see 3 of 7 towns of the Tiroler Zugspitz Arena Ehrwald, Lermoos, and partially Biberwier.

You can also enjoy spectacular views of the many mountain ranges in the surrounding area, including the region’s tallest mountain Zugspitze and the Mieminger Mountains.

The tour itself technically is not difficult, but sure-footedness and good physical condition are necessary. You have the opportunity to take a break in the alpine hut Tuftlalm with an impressive viewing platform at 1496m.

It is recommended that you start the Tour early morning and take a break in Tuftlalm while descending, rather than ascending. They close usually at 17:00 pm. The starting point of the Tour is accessible by public transport: Lermoos Bahnhof.

Once you reach the peak of the Daniel, you’ll be greeted by a breathtaking 360-degree panoramic view. The scenery alone is worth the hike, but there’s more to see! If you’re lucky enough, you might even spot some local wildlife, such as ibexes or chamois.

One thing to keep in mind is the weather conditions. Mountain weather can be unpredictable, so make sure to check the weather forecast before you head out. And don’t forget to bring appropriate clothing, food, and water!

Overall, the peak Daniel hiking tour is a must-do for any hiking enthusiast. Not only will you be rewarded with stunning views, but it’s a great way to challenge yourself and get some exercise. So grab your hiking boots and start exploring the Ammergau Alps!
