Alpine Walk
Mösl Alm, Karwendel Mountains

People are happy to travel miles for a portion of delicious "Graukäse" cheese - for example, 11 kilometres by mountain bike from Scharnitz to the Mösl Alm. Alternately, you can walk to this beautiful alpine farm located on the northern slopes of the Nordkette Mountains. It is, of course, not the cheese alone that draws so many people to the Mösl Alm. Another factor is the stunning nature combining vast forests, bubbling streams, steep rock faces, wild and romantic canyons and gentle meadows.

Trail description

The Mösl Alm is best accessed from Scharnitz, where there is a large pay-and-display car park near the church. The trail leads alongside the Isar River from here into the Karwendel Valleys.

Simply turn around and follow the same route back for your return journey. If the return journey is too far, just call one of the Karwendel taxi shuttle services.
