Geigelstein is the third highest mountain in the Chiemgau Alps and the highest peak of the mountain group located entirely in Bavaria. When viewed from the south, the 100 meter long summit ridge and the sloping flanks resemble a pointed house roof. After protests against the construction of a larger ski area around the Geigelstein an area of more than 300 hectares was established as a nature reserve in 1991. Today it is an important breeding area for peregrine falcons.
