From the Tourist Information Centre, leave the village by proceeding in a southerly direction, passing the tennis court and the cemetery until you reach the Döttenbichel.
Go past the Döttenbichel. At a large clearing, turn diagonally right and ascend across a field to reach a bench at the edge of the forest. From here, the route splits into numerous steep and twisting pathways which lead up into the mountain forest.
Passing a corrie and rocky walls, you will eventually reach the col of the Kofel. The more demanding part of the tour begins here. After a few minutes, you will see the first passages secured by wire rope. These offer useful support on the ascent to the summit of the Kofel.
The effort is worth while. After about 20 minutes, you will reach the summit of the Kofel via the via ferrata.
Descent is once more via the small via ferrata to the col of the Kofel. From here, an easy path over the Königssteig takes you along an attractive high panoramic route as far as the Kolbensattel Hut.
After a refreshment stop at the Kolbensattel Hut, you will have a walk of about 1 hour back to the car park in Oberammergau. Another option for a fast descent is to test the "Alpine Coaster".
