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

At the information centre Scharnitz / parking Parkplatz Länd (P2) pass the Museum Holzerhütte. After approx. 1 km after the Isar bridge, turn left towards Karwendeltal/Karwendelhaus. A short, steep ascent follows to Brandlegg with a view of the neighbouring valleys. 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.
