Our visit here was fantastic, even with the weather being a little cloudy at times. The ride in the cable car to the top was an exhilarating adventure in and of itself as I have a fear of heights but man, what a view! Once...More

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.

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.

An easy ride to the amazing views over the city, or almost an endless mountain chain on the other side with easy short walk. A place to enjoy a cold or hot drink! ...Or you can start your a little bit harder journey to the...More

On a positive note: any cable car to the top of a mountain is amazing but we found this different, not only the views of the valley below but exploring at leisure the telescope museum beside the main building, a 10minute walk through the tunnel...More
