General description: Wank

Wank is a mountain situated at the edge of Garmisch-Partenkirchen valley, on the border between Germany and Austria. The grassy summit of the mountain is topped by a cross and offers spectacular views over the towns and regions nearby.

One of the most known attractions is the Wankbahn - a cable car built in 1928. It takes tourists almost all the way to the top of the mountain - 1780 meters. There are 135 such cabins, each for four people. Near the top there is an inn called the Wankhaus (or Alois Huber Haus) which was built in 1911. It offers food and accommodation for tourists. 

The mountain is a popular destination for paragliders whose destination is the Garmisch-Partenkirchen valley or the peaks in the Wettersteingebirge. It is also perfect for climbing - even for beginners.

We hiked up the wank in around 2hrs to enjoy a lunch and beer on the top. The hike itself was rough because it was in the sun most of the time but the view was beautiful. Definitely a nice hike. Read more
