Summit Hike
Seefelder Spitze (2,221 Metres)

This two-hour hike across the Seefelder Spitze mountain, part of a longer hike known as the "Seefelder Königstour", is one of the classics in the western Karwendel Mountains. Hikers will be mesmerised by the magnificent panoramic views throughout. The walk is difficult and therefore only recommended for experienced hikers. It starts at top of the cable car on the Seefelder Joch ridge (easily accessible from Seefeld via the Rosshütte) and ends at the top of the Härmelekopf cable car, from where hikers can ride back to the Rosshütte for a hard-earned rest and a meal.

Trail description

From Seefeld (1,228 metres), take the funicular railway to the Rosshütte at 1,762 metres. From there, take the cable car up to the Seefelder Joch (2,060 metres). Hike southwards along the initially wide grassy ridge until you reach the Seefelder Spitze at 2,221 metres above sea level. A challenging path then leads downhill to the right on slightly rugged terrain in places and through a gap to the other side of the ridge. Continue down to the "Törl" at an altitude of 2,122 metres. Keep right here until you reach a fork in the path downhill, then continue to the Reither Joch. There, take the path to the north-west. The trail descends diagonally through steep slopes to the top of the cable car at Härmelekopf (2,045 metres). Take the cable car back down to the Rosshütte. Hikers can then choose whether they want to complete the final section down into the valley on foot or take the funicular railway for a second time.

Hinweis: Ohne die Seilbahn zum Seefelder Joch verlängert sich die Tour im Aufstieg um rund 2,5 Stunden.
