Fast cable car ride for some great views of the Karwendel range and Lake Achensee. Sit awhile and enjoy the view and the fantastic mountain air, marvel at the paragliders then enjoy a coffee or beer at the cafe. Lots of walks if you're energetic....More

The cable car ride up was fast and fun. The views at the top are simply amazing and the short trails around the points of interest are fun. Be sure to get a map and check it before wandering around too much because a few...More

The Karwendelbahn is expensive (27,50€/adult for round trip ticket). The trip takes less than 10 minutes each way and the ride was smooth and the operator was professional. I think the bahn operates from 0900 to 1800 with gondolas leaving every 30 minutes. I hiked...More

The first time we went up into the mountains in Mittenwald on the Karwendelbahn was in the spring and there was fresh snow. So it was interesting and a little disappointing to go up the beginning of June and find the mountains mostly bare. However,...More

The kids and adults love this place. A quick trip to the top and then a walk around the rim. The snow in May was lovely on parts of the trail. A place to stand in Austria and Germany at the same time.
