Karwendel

Description

Karwendel

Karwendel - a well known mountain area in northern Austria, above Innsbruck, bordering to Germany - is the largest mountain area of the Northern Limestone Alps. It is a beautiful place, and many people have fallen in love with the wild and typical dry mountain scenery.

The area is situated between the rivers Inn and Isar rivers and the Achensee. The highest peak is the Birkkarspitze (2749 m). The four mountain ranges count some 125 peaks above 2000 m.

The Karwendel is ideal for making challenging multi-day hikes. Mountain hiking experience is required for all but the most easy trails. For although some cabins can be reached through a simple path, most trails in between are more difficult. They are narrow and steep and occasionally need some light "scrambling”. The crossing from one valley to another requires steep climbs and descents over the arid limestone ranges. Some passages are secured with steel cables.

For the well-trained hiker, the Karwendel is a rewarding destination.
