The author of the book, Mike Wells, chanced upon us at Binsalm in the summer of 2010 as my daughter and I were traversing a section of the Adlerweg. He was walking from St. Johann to St. Anton and when we met, was walking from Lamsenjochhuette to Falkenhuette (Stage 9). He announced that the book would appear by Spring 2012 and indeed it has.

I decided to purchase it, but wondered why he was reinventing the wheel for the english market. Surely, a translation of the red, german Rother Wanderfuehrer would have sufficed? This excellent, german series covers most areas and trails around the world.

However, it seems that Mike Wells has found a gap in the market. There is no Rother Wanderfuehrer guide for the Adlerweg at the moment. There is a glossy german production by Stefanie Holzer, but this is not as detailed as Mike's Cicerone guide and is too large to be carried en route. The Cicerone guide is compact and packed with all the information you need. (It is also packed with some you don't need, but this is extremely informative about the history of the area.)

This is a "must have" guide for the route.

Last year (2011) I walked from Scharnitz to Pertisau in four days, which took in Stages 8, 9 and 10. For those seeking a challenge, the last Saturday in August (typically a wet one) is set aside for the annual Karwendelmarsch (Scharnitz to Pertisau). Runners and walkers set off at 06:00 and must have reached Eng by 15:00 in order to be allowed to complete the 52 km route. A place on the march has to be prebooked with the organisers and costs about 30 Euros. This covers organisational costs including water served en route. The route joins the Adlerweg at Karwendelhaus and diverges from it between Binsalm and Lamsenjochhuette.

This is a competent and well-researched Cicerone guide to the Adlerweg by Mike Wells. The guide exhibits the trade mark Cicerone qualities: quality maps and photographs, distances, timings, altitudes and altitude profiles. Useful local information, historical background and the occasional note on nature, don’t distract from the basic requirement of a guide to provide the reader with a clear overview and details of the route.

The Adlerweg has a profusion of sometimes confusing variants. Sensibly, Mr Wells has stuck to the main route with details of the key easier alternatives (useful in bad weather) and the more advanced or challenging stages in the Lechtal Alps which will be of interest to the experienced mountain walker if the weather is fine.

The author has decided in his directions not to quote the path numbers of the route and some may find this frustrating since the route numbers figure on both signposts and maps. However, given that he usually quotes both the compass direction and the signposted destination of the route I did not personally find this a problem, though occasionally the number of the path can be a better indicator of the right path than the destination.

The book though published a few years ago is still largely accurate in 2014 with regard to the route. A few minor changes have been made to the route and the non-functioning of the Kaiserlift down to Kufstein (out of action for a couple of years now) may throw some. That said, Cicerone rather efficiently keep route updates on their website and these can be checked prior to setting out.

My only criticism is that I would have liked to see a few accommodation suggestions for some of the villages the route passes through. These aid the walker in finding lodging at the end of a long day.

This is a "must have" guide for the route.

Last year (2011) I walked from Scharnitz to Pertisau in four days, which took in Stages 8, 9 and 10. For those seeking a challenge, the last Saturday in August (typically a wet one) is set aside for the annual Karwendelmarsch (Scharnitz to Pertisau). Runners and walkers set off at 06:00 and must have reached Eng by 15:00 in order to be allowed to complete the 52 km route. A place on the march has to be prebooked with the organisers and costs about 30 Euros. This covers organisational costs including water served en route. The route joins the Adlerweg at Karwendelhaus and diverges from it between Binsalm and Lamsenjochhuette. Instead, it passes over Binssattel to enter a green and stunning bowl-like valley (the hidden eighth wonder of the world!) and then drops down to Gramaialm Hochleger and eventually to Gramaialm. A flat valley walk to Pertisau completes the route.

I have also covered parts of stages 2 and 3 when I scaled Scheffauer in the summer of 2010. The Wilder Kaiser range is stunning, but for the faint hearted, rest assured that the Adlerweg circumvents these treacherous mountains. The Wilder Kaiser range and its environs are particularly stunning in Autumn, as the valleys comprise mainly golden larches.

The prime time for the route is July and August. Most of the huts close by the end of September, as the snow comes early at these altitudes (approaching 2000 metres).
HASH(0x98112978) out of 5 stars Super Buch! 27 Feb. 2015

Super Buch!! Wir haben 1/3 des Adlerwegs nur mit diesem als Grundlage absolviert. Das "Kartenmaterial" selbst haben wir über eine app abegedeckt, da dies in dem Buch nur bedingt aussagekräftig war. Die Wegbeschreibungen, Zeitangaben, Schwierigkeitsangaben waren immer akkurat. Die Beschreibungen der Hütten inkl Telefonnummerangaben haben auch immer gestimmt (1x gabs die angegebene Telefonnummer nicht mehr).
