Tour description

The starting point of this mountain hike is at the hiking parking lot at the Isar bridge in Krün. Once over the Isar bridge, first go left on the forest road for a short while, between the Isar riverbed to the left and the forested slopes of the Soiern mountains to the right, arriving on the forest road to the Fischbachalm alpine hut (operated part-time) following some steep ascents. After arriving at the alpine hut, stay to the left and continue the mountain hike on the forest trail. Follow this down into the "Hundstall" valley floor. From here, the ascent leads you up through the clearing forest again. At the trail junction shortly before the lodge, stay to the right to reach the Soiernhaus lodge up several steps. Continuing from the Soiern basin over the narrow climb (surefootedness required) will take you to the Schöttlkarspitze in about 1.5 hours. Once at the summit, enjoy the peace and the wonderful panorama of the Alpenwelt region. You can descend back to the hiking parking lot in Krün via the Seinskopf and Schwarzkopf.
