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

I went up to the heights of Karwendel and had witnessed such an amazing beautiful scenic panorama of Alps, it was wonderful. Snow laden peaks, people were mountaineering, blue sky..all was mesmerizing.

It does cost you quite a lot to use the cablecar to reach the top of Karwendel,but it is worth it.Your view goes as far as Zugspitze near Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
