A hike from Wiesenhof Mountain Inn in the Hinterau Valley to Hallerangerhaus Mountain Hut.
In the morning, our hiker’s taxi will take you into the Hinterau Valley. Following a moderately ascending trail, you’ll trace the Isar river to its source. At Kastenalm Inn, you can recharge your batteries for the final ascent, which will take you further into the Karwendel mountain range. You’ll get to experience life as a true mountaineer as you spend the night in a shared dorm room at Hallerangerhaus Lodge.
On warmer days, you can enjoy some beautiful breaks on the banks of the Isar and refresh your tired legs in the crystal-clear waters.
Today you may be walking past a few different areas where cows graze. Although generally very docile and used to walkers, keep your distance and never turn your back on a cow that is behaving strangely or aggressive. Be particularly vigilant around cows with calves.
Always allow plenty of time for your hike. The walking times indicated do not include breaks. Breaks for photos and a rest need to be added to the specified times.
Make sure you find out about current weather conditions and keep an eye on weather changes. Thunderstorms can gather very quickly in the Alps.
The Karwendel Alpine Park is the largest Nature Park in Austria and it comprises a total of 11 protected areas, the most famous of which is the Karwendel. More information on Karwendel Nature Park can be found at https://www.alpenwelt-karwendel.de/en
