Gießenbachtal - Eppzirlertal, Karwendelgebirge, Scharnitz
Alpine pastures & huts
The Oberbrunnalm embodies everything that characterises a real alpine hut: Deep in the heart of the Karwendel Nature Park, hearty Tyrolean "Brettljausen" await hungry hikers in the traditional wooden hut, and the homemade bacon and cheese dumplings also taste simply "sakrisch guat" at 1,523 metres above sea level. After a hearty snack with a view of Hohe Munde and Erlspitzgruppe, the cosy sun terrace with homemade cakes, aromatic coffee and freshly tapped refreshments invites you to relax. The alp is only managed in the summer months and then offers an authentic alpine experience.
From the Gießenbach car park (between Seefeld and Scharnitz), which is subject to a charge, a signposted forest path leads to the alpine pasture, initially somewhat steeper, then flatter. If you prefer not to drive, simply travel by bus and train (to Scharnitz or Giessenbach) and then start directly from Giessenbach station to the charming Oberbrunnalm.
