With its steep, grey peaks, quiet valleys and wild mountain meadows, the Karwendel is 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 thousand metres (over 3280 feet) steeply into the sky – a breathtaking sight. Not only experienced mountaineers will get their money's worth in this picturesque mountain landscape. Pleasure hikers and families can explore the stunning landscape in the wide valleys and on the green mountains of the Karwendel foothills around Mittenwald, Wallgau and Krün. There are also wonderful views of the Karwendel and Wettersteingebirge mountain peaks. The hikes are especially beautiful in autumn when the beech, birch, larch and maple trees change colour and plunge the steep mountain slopes into a fantastic sea of colour.

We have selected seven varied hikes and routes in the Karwendel Alpine World for you. Whether it's a scenic mountain tour up to the Simetsberg, a fantastic round to the Barmsee, a surprising hike through the Leutasch ghost gorge or a leisurely stroll along the fairytale trail – there's something for every hiker. Simply browse through our tours and choose your favourite hikes.
