Brunnsteinspitze Summit, 2,180 m / Trail no. 27

Starting point: Scharnitz - Alpine Hut Brunnsteinhütte – Summit Brunnsteinspitze
Walking time: approx. 5 hours
Starting at the former customs office in Scharnitz, follow the main road towards Mittenwald. Cross
the road and the railway line at the petrol station, and follow the road towards Mittenwald. Turn left
at the farm and you come to the track that leads from Mittenwald up to the alpine hut Brunnsteinhütte
(1,523 m). Continue via the Brunnsteinsteig track up to the alpine hut Tiroler Hütte (2,153
m – no refreshments available) and up to the Brunnsteinspitze summit where you can take in the
magnificent views of Scharnitz. The descent via the Brunnsteinkopf is steep and strenuous (NB:
the entrance to the track is quite hard to find) and takes you back down to Scharnitz over the Birzelgrat
ridge and the Adlerkanzel viewpoint. You can, however, climb back down from the summit
Brunnsteinspitze by the same route used for the ascent, via the alpine hut Brunnsteinhütte.
