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 Hinterautal road to the Gleirschhöhe. From there, take the turnoff to the right into the Gleirschtal valley. First the road leads downwards, before it goes steeply upwards for a good stretch over the so called "Krapfen". After a few kilometers follow the signs on the forest road to the right, up to the Kristenalm, through the Großkristental. Cyclists leave the bike at this junction and hike the last kilometers to the alp.

  • 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
