  • SaRie

    At the wooden gate is lowered. Behind the fence, a little bench invites you to linger ... young birch and blueberry bushes, mountain lizards and the stemless gentian line the tranquil village. In the background, the young Isar gazes and draws attention to himself.This is where the fourth largest river in Bavaria starts. Hardly anyone knows, however, that the official Isar origin is not a real source, but rather the place where three streams - karst springs from the overlying debris field - meet. Locals call the place in front of the Kastenalm in the Hinterautal therefore also "by the rivers".The whole Hinterautal impresses by the summit chains, to whose ascent one finds many starting points.Source and further information:

    Even if the springs are not a big attraction, a trip to the Karwendeltäler is worthwhile - wonderful in any weather.
