The Tajaköpfe (Taja peaks) are on a relatively long north-south running ridge, with twisting ridges and gullies running down the sides. They are seperated from other peaks rising above the Seebensee and Brendkar by the Hintere Taja Törl (roughly "the back Taja gate") at 2259 meters. This high pass has a trail that goes from the Drachensee to the Brendkar. Due to it's popularity because of a streneous via ferrata, the Vordere Tajakopf ("front Taja summit") gets the most attention.
The reward for climbing any of the Tajaköpfe is a stunning view of the Mieminger Range running along to the south, a bird's eye view down to the Seebensee, and south walls of the Wetterstein across the valley that can't be ignored for long. Ascending the peak via the ferrata, perhaps combined with an ascent of the "sport" Seebener ferrata, will make for a grand day out on faces and ridges.
The easiest climb would be from a trail near the Coburger Hut. Follow trail 812 up to the Hintere Taja Törl, turning off to the north on a faint trail in scree that goes through some cliffs to reach the high pass of the Vordere Taja Törl. From here, the trail is sometimes protected with a cable as it ascends just left of the south ridge of the peak. From the summit, it appears that you could continue on to nab the Nordliche Tajakopf as well, just a little lower at 2441 meters. The DAV map shows this trail well.
For some additional excitement, you could follow signs from the Seebensee to the valley station of the material-lift for the Coburger Hütte. A little beyond, a faint trail leads up and left to the base of the peak's western cliffs, and the start of the Tajakopf Klettersteig (protected climbing route). This is a long and difficult "via ferrata" with several vertical walls and some exposed traverses. It ascends on very solid rock of the West Ridge.
The trailhead is the Ehrwalderalmbahn station or the town of Ehrwald itself. There are several ways of getting there.
Ehrwald is easily reachable by car via Garmisch Partenkirchen (Germany), Innsbruck (Austria) or Kempten (Germany).
A train connection from Ehrwald to the above called cities exists.
From Garmisch Partenkirchen you reach the airport of Munich quite easy by car or train, but Innsbruck airport is closer to Ehrwald.
Children refers to the set of objects that logically fall under a given object. For example, the
Aconcagua mountain page is a child of the 'Aconcagua Group' and the 'Seven Summits.' The
Aconcagua mountain itself has many routes, photos, and trip reports as children.
Parents refers to a larger category under which an object falls. For example, theAconcagua mountain page has the 'Aconcagua Group' and the 'Seven Summits' asparents and is a parent itself to many routes, photos, and Trip Reports.
