Birkkarspitze Summit, 2,749 m / Trail nos. 201, 25

Starting point: Scharnitz – Alpine Hut Karwendelhaus – Ridge Schlaukar – Summit Birkkarspitze
Walking time: approx. 6.5 hours
Here’s another tour which gives you the opportunity to combine mountain biking with mountain
hiking! Starting at the hikers’ car park, follow the road to the venison wholesaler 'Wildfleischhandel
Gaugg'. Cross the bridge there and turn left towards the Karwendeltal valley. The climb is steep
at the beginning as far as the Birzelkapelle chapel. Continue on the forest track to the Larchetalm
Alpine hut (hut is closed),then on through the beautiful Karwendeltal valley with a final
ascent up to the alpine hut Karwendelhaus. From there, a steep, winding track takes you into and
through the Schlaukar cirque and onto a scree track up to the Schlauchkarsattel (2,639 m). Caution:
there is old snow lying on the steep slopes before the saddle almost all summer long! From the
saddle, walk in an easterly direction to the little Birkkarhüttl (no refreshments available) mountain
refuge where a fixed-steel-rope section leads you over the craggy rock to the summit (2,749 m).
The descent follows the same route as the ascent.
