The Eibsee Loop Trail is only 4.3 miles (6.9 kilometers) long. There’s barely any elevation gains.
But it took me nearly 3 hours to walk it.
Because there’s a magnificent view every step of the way!
Such as this small hidden lake;
The near perfect reflection of the surrounding peaks;
And the emerald colour of the water
accentuated under late afternoon sun
By the time I got to the Eibsee train station, there was a long queue. Obviously everyone’s out on this brilliant Monday. I can’t imagine what it would be like during the summer peak season.
Needless to say, I didn’t get back to Oberammergau until late. Oh well, at least I didn’t have to worry about where to go for food. Most restaurants are closed on Mondays.
