The tour to the Pleisenhütte lodge begins in Mittenwald, with a ride through the Riedboden nature conservation area to the neighboring town of Scharnitz, in Tirol. At the center of town, the approach branches off toward the Karwendel valleys and leads to the popular Wiesenhof guest house. The actual ascent to the Pleisenhütte lodge begins here, keeping to the left. A short, flat section follows the first climb, before becoming steadily steeper – the enormous climb during the last section is not to be underestimated. These exertions will soon be forgotten, however, after arriving at the cozy alpine lodge at 1,757 meters, where you can regain your strength with refreshing beverages and homemade specialties
