Tour description

The bike tour to Möslalm and Pfeishütte begins at Bahnhofsplatz in Mittenwald with a ride through the nature reserve Riedboden in the neighbouring village of Scharnitz in Tyrol. If you turn left behind the church, you will reachthe entrance to the Karwendel valleys via a tarred road. Pass the Gasthof

Wiesenhof (no refreshment stop)to the Gleierscher Höhe and a short stretch downhill to cross the young Isar . Here begins the partly steep ascent to the Möslalm, whereby short breathers can be taken in the flat sections again and again, before there is the opportunity to stop for a drink at the Möslalm . Now the ride continues towards the Pfeishütte at 1,922 metres. Over rough gravel and becoming steeper and steeper, you reach a bike

parking area. From here it is another 300 metres to the hut. Bikers with good physical condition and technical skills can also ride up.
