To the Karwendelhaus (1.771m) with the MTB

After yesterday’s rain, today the weather cleared and so I decided to go on a quick mountain bike tour to the Karwendelhaus.

Startingpoint was Scharnitz on the border to Germany.

The tour is fairly easy with not too many meters to climb (some 900m) and the with approx. 39km (return) is easily done in 3 hours.

From the parking in Scharnitz you simply have to follow the signs to Larchet Alm and to Karwendelhaus – you can’t really miss it. Even though the tour is not too hard, it’s well worth a go – the landscape and the views you get to see are fantastic.

From the Karwendelhaus you can also start some nice climbing tours to the surrounding mountains, or you continue on with the mountain bike to the Falkenhütte or the Großer or Kleiner Ahornboden.
