Hiking near Fussen

We will spend a day in Fussen and want to take a 1-2 hour hike in a beautiful place - any suggestions?

Also, I'd like to see the Alps but don't care to really for heights or winding roads... so if we head south from Munich and see Ettal Monastery and then drive to Fussen, will we see the Alps and beautiful scenery without perilous roads?

If you're driving from Munich, if you leave early enough you could go to Garmisch-Partenkirchen, then head south to the Zugspitze. This will give you an alpine feel and provide you with a nice hike around the Eibsee, a beautiful lake at the foot of the mountain.

To get to Fuessen from G-P, you will have to go through a mile-long tunnel and up a small mountain/large hill. The route isn't too twisty, though.

Thanks for the reply. The lake looks lovely and there is Hotel Eibsee on the lake. We may stay there instead of Fussen. I assume there is a hiking trail around the lake...

There is a trail; it's either 7 or 10 KM around the entire lake. The side closest to the Zugspitze has other activities, such as paddleboats. The hotel sits on that same side of the lake, but away from all the activity. In addition, the train station for getting to the top of the Zugspitze is a short walk from the hotel.

The walk around the lake is lovely, track is flat. Background of mountains, the water is turquoise, brilliant green forest. We did it after the Zugspitze cable car trip.
