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

I was a sweaty, panic ridden coward in the cable car; everyone was laughing at me. But I was so glad when we arrived that I soon forgot the error. I thought we would go up, maybe have a quick drink, then go back down....More

Our visit here was fantastic, even with the weather being a little cloudy at times. The ride in the cable car to the top was an exhilarating adventure in and of itself as I have a fear of heights but man, what a view! Once...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 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.

Great hikes from the top of the cable car. Beautiful small loop around the top, with trails leading off to bigger hikes. Remember to not miss the last car down though. Hike is not extreme- suitable for families. Cable car is kinda expensive, but worth...More

The views from the short circular walk from the top of the cable car were amazing, as were the flowers and wildlife (alpine gentians, rock ptarmigan, alpine chough etc). The telescope building is fascinating with a display on natural history. Well worth a few hours...More
