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.

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.
