For a map covering the wider area, buy the Pfaffenwinkel Ammergauer Alpen nördl. Teil (UK50-49) map (scale 1:50000). Unfortunately the excellent Deutscher Alpenverein maps (scale 1:25000) do not extend this far north, though the Ammergebirge Ost (sheet BY 7) and Estergebirge (BY 9) sheets cover the mountain areas to the southwest and south respectively.
