Hiking on Mount Wank


The Wank is a mountain in the southwestern Ester Mountains range near Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany. It rises to 1,780 metres a.s.l. The summit is a popular destination for hikers, day-trippers from Garmisch-Partenkirchen. The Wank is linked to Garmisch-Partenkirchen by a cable car system called the Wankbahn. 


Nearby is an scientific measuring station and the Wank-Haus, a mountain hut that provides food and accommodation to visitors. The grassy summit offers spectacular views across the region, which provide the best view of Garmisch-Partenkirchen and a complete panorama of the Zugspitze and the Wetterstein mountain range. 


The summit is a popular destination for gliders and paragliders, who are able to take advantage of its strong thermals to make exceptionally long flights.
