Trail running around the Zugspitze
Sometimes, it’s simply time to leave the trodden path. It’s not surprising that many runners head out into the open terrain in the Tiroler Zugspitz Arena. Trail running is becoming increasingly popular among runners. Remote trails, soft forest floors, blue lakes and scenic views: Trail running is a great way to explore the region at the foot of the Zugspitze from an entirely new perspective.
By the way: Together with the Grainau region, the trail running routes around the Zugspitze were further developed and improved. The project was funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
