Hell Valley Grainau South Bavarian Alps has such a cool name you have to see it. It is a good strenuous hike so dress appropriately and you are rewarded with an experience and beautiful views.

Hoellentalkamm Grainau Bavaria Germany is an uphill hike to see this point of interest. Climbing carefully along the many waterfalls in the mountains is not for everyone but worth the views.

Hoellentalkamm is quite a hike uphill. We were prepared with shoes and water but didn't understand how steep parts of the trail are. The falls are worth doing for sure. Very tired after this day. There is a couple euro entrance fee
