Hiking Berchestgaden - What to wear

Jump to last reply

Preparing to pack for my family's hut to hut hiking trip at the end of July.

Kuhroint Hutte
Watzmannhaus
Schaertenalm Hutte
Blaueishutte
Berchestgaden

We have four kids (ages 5,6,7,9) and can count on the two older kids to carry packs with a total of four pounds. We've been "training" around town (Key West, Florida), hiking around the island and increasing the amount of weight in their packs.

Because my husband and I will be carrying most everything (35-45 pounds each), I want to keep what we take to a minimum.

I know I need to pack rain wear (coat and pants), a warm fleece and hat, hut shoes. What I don't know is do we wear pants or shorts? What will the weather be like at the end of July? We have sleep sacks, but do we need pajamas, or do we just sleep in our clothes?

Does anyone have their packing list that they could share? Any help/advice is greatly appreciated.
