Route: Scharnitz – Birzelkapelle – Alpine House Karwendelhaus - Scharnitz
Very long hike that requires good physical condition.

After the information office along the Auweg to the Isarbrücke bridge. Turn right up the slightly ascending path, past the "Gästehaus Helga" to the Birzelkapelle junction. Follow this beautiful, partly steep path until you reach the Birzelkapelle. Passing the chapel you reach the forest road into the Karwendeltal. Always stay on this forest road, at the end a steep ascent in serpentines past the Hochalm to the Karwendelhaus. On the same forest road through the Karwendel valley you come back to Scharnitz.
