Mountain Biking Highlight
The Hochalmsattel marks the 1,803 meter high transition between the Karwendel and Filztal. At the highest point is the Joch cross. In summer, a detour to the nearby Karwendelhaus is worthwhile. It offers refreshments and accommodation. You either come from Scharnitz or from Hinterriss up here, whereby the driveway of Scharnitz is a bit more moderate. Have you done the sweaty uphill from here you can enjoy the magnificent views of the surrounding peaks such as the Hochalmkreuz and the Birkkarspitze.

The Hochalmsattel with its Jochkreuz, belonging to the municipality of Scharnitz at an altitude of 1803 meters can be reached via Scharnitz or via Hinterriss. West the Karwendeltal, east the lower Filztal and the small Ahornboden. Here you should definitely take a break and let the sight of the impressive Kalkriesen work on it.
