Route: Scharnitz information centre – Alpine Hut Pleisenhütte – Summit Pleisenspitze to the hut - straighforward hike to the summit – high Alpine hike 

Starting at the information centre Scharnitz at the car park Länd (P2) follow the road Hinterautalstraße to the Isarlodge Wiesenhof. The forest path starts to the left of the lodge through wide open forests taking you to the foot of the mountain. From there branch off diagonally to the right and, after walking through a steep pine forest, you arrive at the alpine hut Pleisenhütte where you can rest and enjoy a drink on the lovely south-facing sun terrace. Relax and take in the breathtaking view of the eight surrounding mountain ranges. Fit hikers can continue their climb up to the Pleisenspitze summit. Go diagonally upwards behind the hut into the Vorderkar cirque through an interesting karst landscape with several vertical caves. From there, go left onto the Pleisen, then westwards and upwards alongside the ridge to reach the spectacular summit and enjoy the breathtaking views.
