    The tour description

    The starting point for this short mountain tour is the centre of Krün, accessible via the bus stop of the same name. At the maypole you walk along the Schöttlkarspitzstraße to the town hall, further down towards the Isar. Here you cross the Isar bridge and keep to the right, approx. 300 metres along the forest road, until you reach the turn-off into the Hüttlebachklamm on the left. From here, the trail runs through the Klamm to a covered bench that invites you to take a rest. Continue following the signs to the right up the well-maintained trail to the lookout on the Schwarzkopf.  For the descent, take the same trail again and then turn right following the signs to Krün.
