Start the tour at the market square in Hopfgarten and walk in the direction of Kühle Luft. Turn left right after the bridge follow the river promenade until the wooden bridge. Cross the bridge, turn to the right after it and walk along the main road for approx. 100m until you get to the restaurant Hauserstüberl. Turn right there and cross the bridge to Elsbethen. Keep to the left after the bridge and walk on until Schindergrabenweg. Cross Schindergrabenweg and walk up Gruberberg. Turn left at the first crossing and follow the road to the snack bar Jausenstation Grinda.
We recommend to take the same way back to return to your point of departure but have a little detour to the lovely Elsbethen Chapel.
Details and maps are available from the tourist information office in Hopfgarten.
