Route: Scharnitz – Hut Larchetalm (no service) – Alpine House Karwendelhaus - Scharnitz
Walking time: approx. 8 hours
Starting at the information office, walk left along the road, via Inrain to the Isar bridge. Turn left here
and a short uphill walk takes you past Guesthouse Helga to the turnoff to the Birzelkapelle chapel.
Follow this lovely track, steep in places, to the chapel. Once past the chapel you join the forest
track to the Karwendeltal valley. Follow this track until you reach the Larchetalm hut (no service).
Continue along the forest track towards the alpine house Karwendelhaus – the track becomes
steeper and winds up past the high pastures on the last section to the Karwendelhaus. Return to
Scharnitz on the same forest track through the Karwendeltal valley.
