With its rugged, grey peaks, quiet valleys and rough mountain meadows, the Karwendel Mountains are undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and untouched mountain ranges in the Alps. Directly above the pretty town of Mittenwald, the mountains rise more than a 3,000 feet (1,000 meters) steeply into the sky - a breathtaking sight. But not only experienced alpinists get their money's worth in this picturesque mountain landscape. In the wide valleys and on the green mountains of the Karwendel foothills around Mittenwald, Walgau and Krün, pleasure hikers and families can explore the landscape. In addition, there are wonderful views of the grey mountain peaks of Karwendel and Wettersteingebirge. The hikes in autumn are particularly beautiful: Now the beech, birch, larch and maple trees change color and immerse the steep mountain slopes in a fantastic sea of golds, ambers and greens.

We have selected ten varied hikes and mountain Tours in the Karwendel Alpenwelt for you. Whether a tight mountain Tour to the Schöttlkarspitz, an exciting summit adventure on the Mittenwald via ferrata, an enjoyable hike to the Hohe Kranzberg or a leisurely walk through the Riedboden nature reserve - there is something for every hiker. Simply browse through our Tours and choose your favorite hikes.

You can easily reach the Karwendel Alpine World by train from all over Germany. From Munich there is a regular regional train via Garmisch-Partenkirchen to Mittenwald station. In addition, long-distance buses run from many cities in Germany to Garmisch-Partenkirchen. The communities in the Karwendel Alpine World are well connected by bus lines, so you can easily get into the outdoors without needing a car.

Timetable information is available at flixbus.de, bahn.de and alpenwelt-karwendel.de/fahrplan.
