Route: Scharnitz Café Reitherbrot – Plattsteig – Chapel Birzelkapelle - Scharnitz Café Reitherbrot

Starting at the Café Reitherbrot, follow the slightly uphill street until you are beyond the railway crossing. Turn left and follow the Plattsteig trail between the houses and then turn right at the first turnoff and continue following the Plattsteig trail towards the Birzelkapelle chapel. After approximately half an hour you have the option of branching off to the right and returning to Scharnitz via the hamlet of Inrain, or you can take the steep forest path up to the Birzelkapelle chapel. Not suitable for pushchairs.
