The starting point of this challenging, partially high-alpine mountain hike is at the hiking parking lot at the Isar bridge in Gries in Krün. Beyond the Isar bridge, take a quick right and then left onto a climb to the Schwarzkopf vantage point; climbing continually, first proceed through the forest and, later, through the mountain pines up to the Seinskopf, where you will find a splendid view of Krün. Then climb down to the other side in the high-alpine landscape, along the south side of the Feldernkreuz to the left. From there, make a short ascent and keep to the left toward the Schöttlkarspitze. The climb (approx. 5 hrs.) will take you by the Soiernhaus lodge (refreshment stop), the Lakaiensteig (surefootedness and a head for heights required) or Hundstall (easier version) to the Fischbachalm alpine hut (operated part-time) and then back to the hiking parking lot.
