The family hike to Weitsee begins in Reit im Winkl and is about 8 km long. Make sure to bring your swimming suits and towels in your backpack. From the town center it goes towards Entfelden. Anyone who is on holiday in Reit im Winkl anyway has no additional journey. From there, you can directly follow the signs to Weitsee. The path runs through a beautiful mountain landscape that looks better than in a picture book. Pass free-range cows and flowering meadows.
Halfway the Pötschalm/Jochbergalm lies in the middle of the idyll. The hut with its cozy character you should not miss under any circumstances. With a little break and strengthening in the stomach, the last part of the way succeeds.
At the end it goes a few meters along the main road. There is a small footpath along the edge, but caution is still required. The bathing area at the Weitsee can already be seen from a distance. The mountain lake is an absolutely wonderful place for a long break after the family hike in Reit im Winkl.
You can go back to the village by bus. It is best to find out at the bus stop on the main road for the exact departure times or alternatively call a taxi. Maybe you and your kids have enough strength to walk the way back. Who knows!
