Having looked at other reviews, we all decided to spend our day on this mountain and had a great trip. Yes, the name is very amusing for an English speaker (and many jokes ensued) but it is also a very pretty place, a really enjoyable...More
Just 1 hr by car from Munich, beautiful Wank mountain is the perfect one day hike plan. Let the cow bells and the astonishing views accompany you along the way to the summit. If you are too tired, you can take the gondola up in...More

It's possible, but the snow can start in late October. Depending on fitness level- maybe 4-5 hours. You also have to be aware that in the Garmisch-Partenkirchen valley you are 700 meters in altitude and then going up the another 1000 meters so the air might affect you too. However, there is a halfway station for the cable car so you can get a ride up/down. If that sounds a bit daunting, you can ride the cable car up and hike around the summit area- that can take an hour or two in itself.
