Route: Scharnitz Nature Park Information Center - Gleirschhöhe - Glierschtal - Kristenalm


To save time, it is recommended to take the bike up to crossing Kristenalm/Möslalm and then continue on foot to the Kristenalm.

From the Scharnitz Nature Park Info Center follow the forest road into the Gleirschtal and after a few kilometers leave your bike at the fork into the Kristental. From here, continue on to the Kristenalm on foot ( bikes are not allowed).

Details for one direction:

  • Bike route nr. 579: approx. 10 km, 260 hm uphill, 01:15 h, difficulty: medium
  • Hike route: approx. 2,5 km, 160 hm uphill, 01:00 h, difficulty: easy

If you only hike the tour, it will takes approx. 03:30 h.

If you want to enjoy the landscape even more, you can hike along a narrow path to the Solsteinhaus (another 3.5 km, 620 hm uphill, 02:00 h, difficulty: medium). Once there, you can climb the Großer Solstein (2,541m) in another 2-3 hrs. An overnight stay at the Solsteinhaus is recommended for the extension. Once at the summit, you can enjoy a panoramic view from the Zugspitze in the west, the Karwendel mountains in the north to the Stubai and Zillertal mountains in the south.

Alternate way back (only if you hike):
Alternatively, you can hike from the Solsteinhaus to the Hochzirl train station (approx. 2 h) and from there comfortably take the train back to the starting point.
