Wandern im Karwendel

Capture the strength of the mountains from below. Become part of the Alps. Indescribable.

The strung-out Karwendel mountain chain allows for so many possibilities, from Alpine hikes and walks in the Karwendel Nature Park to Nordic walking tours and geocaching adventures, to demanding mountain hikes and climbing challenges at the nearby cliffs of the Lalider Wand. 

A hiking holiday in Tyrol – simply made for mountain enthusiasts.
