From the Scharnitz Nature Park Info Center, turn right to Café Länd, directly opposite a small
Directly opposite, climb a small hill and turn right into the dirt road, continue left towards the Mühlberg parking lot. After the last house on the left, the ascent begins in serpentines on a narrow, partly steep path through the Bärenklamm (signpost). This path (surefootedness required) leads through shady high forest to the Mühlberg forest road. Continue on the ascending path to the former mountain station Mühlberglift. From there further ascent on a narrow path to the left to the Mittagskopf and Zäunlkopf. The detour to the beautiful view (approx. 10 min) rewards with a magnificent view of the Karwendel valleys. From the Zäunlkopf begins the descent, continuing to follow the signs to the Oberbrunnalm. Return via the Gießenbach valley on the forest road in the direction of Scharnitz. Shortly before Gießenbach turn right and hike along the railroad via the Stuckweg back to Scharnitz.

Alternatively, the hike can also be started in Giessenbach (P5/P6). Here you first cross the bridge, after which you have to turn directly left. After a few meters on the path, take the fork up to the right and continue to follow the path. After a while you will also reach the Mühlberg forest path. Continue as described above.

Surefootedness required!
