Tour description

This hike from Mittenwald to the 1,391 meter-high Kranzberg is one of the "classics" among the hiking tours of the Alpenwelt Karwendel region, and begins and the base station of the Kranzberg chair lift. To the left of the base station, the hiking trail leads up from the parking lot and first leads through the forest below the Kranzberg chair lift. Hikers will follow the trail under the chair lift toward the St. Anton alpine tavern, which sits at 1,223 meters and offers opportunities for refreshment. The hiking trail leads past the alpine tavern and on upward to the Kranzberg summit lodge, which sits directly below the destination of the hike – the Hoher Kranzberg. From the summit lodge, hikers can follow a few switchbacks to reach the Peak.
