„Karwendelmarsch“ long distance hike. Alon a 52 km route to Pertisau or a 35 km route to Eng, the max. 2.500 participants can take the beauty of the Alpenpark Karwendel.
To allow ambitious hikers, Nordic walkers and runners to enjoy the impressive beauty of Karwendel  Alpine Nature Park, Olympiaregion Seefeld is organising the now legendary Karwendel March together with the Vitalregion Achensee region.
And in the high summer of 2016, the regions will once again be inviting participants to take part in a long distance march together. To do so, hikers will need to conquer paths leading to 2,281 metres in altitude (uphill). The route leads from a start in Scharnitz, via the Eng valley, to Pertisau am Achensee. The emphasis throughout is on providing a fascinating nature experience and strengthening visitors’ awareness of Karwendel Alpine Nature Park as a unique environment for numerous rare flora and fauna.
