Sunny-10° / 2° C Details & further outlook
Route: Scharnitz / information office – Road Hinterautalstraße – Path Karwendelsteg
Walking time: approx. 1.5 – 2 hours
Starting at the information office, cross the bridge, turn left before the church and follow the road
Hinterautalstraße as far as the Gaugg quarry after which a small steep track goes up to the left.
Follow this track along the Karwendel Gorge until you reach the forest path towards the Karwendel
mountain range. From here you can either continue on to the Birzelkapelle chapel, or you can walk
back down the road to Scharnitz. Another option would be to walk to the inn Gasthof Wiesenhof
via the path Karwendelsteg and back to Scharnitz from there (see the half-day hike route description
on page 38). Not suitable for pushchairs.
