Overnight Hiking Trip - Karwendelhaus (1765m) & Birkkarspitze (2749m) on 08.Jul.2017

25 posts in this topic

The second overnight hike in 2017 takes us to the beautiful Karwendel. Our tour starts at Alpengasthof Eng. We will stop at Falkenhütte (1848m) for lunch before we head to our accommodation right in the heart of Karwendel. The Karwendelhaus on 1765m is our base camp for our hike up Karwendel’s highest peak: We will hike up Birkkarspitze (2741m) on Sunday. On Monday we hike down to Mittenwald and stop at Hochlandhütte (1630m) for lunch. Monday 10.Jul.2017 isn’t a bank holiday, so you have to take a day off work to join the group. The hike up Birkkarspitze is rated black and definitely requires previous hiking experience and proper hiking boots.

 

Route

 

Saturday 08.Jul.2017

Alpengasthof Eng (900m) - Falkenhütte (1848m) - Karwendelhaus (1765m)

Walking time = ~6h, distance = 16km, elevation gain = 1250hm.

We’ll have lunch at Falkenhütte.

 

A sheet sleeper is required to spend the night at Karwendelhaus.

I booked 10x Zimmerlager for us.

 

Sunday 09.Jul.2017

Karwendelhaus (1765m) - Birkkarspitze (2741m) - [optional: Hochalmkreuz (2192m) +250hm] - Karwendelhaus (1765m)

Walking time = ~7h, distance = 9km, elevation gain = 1250hm.

There is no hut on the way, so we’ll buy sandwiches and snacks at Karwendelhaus. The way up Birkkarspitze is very steep in places and there is a little bit of scrambling. The exact route will be determined on short notice based on the weather and other conditions as left over snow.

 

Monday 10.Jul.2017 --> you have to take Monday off

Karwendelhaus (1765m) - Hochlandhütte (1630m) - Mittenwald (900m)

Walking time = ~7h, distance = 18km, elevation gain = 800hm.

We'll have lunch at Hochlandhütte.
