Hike description

  1. From Scharnitz Bahnhof (964m) walk 100m south and turn left immediately before the Isarbrücke into Inrainstrasse, cross the bridge over the railway.
  2. Immediately after the bridge ignore the north-east and east turnings and continue going east on the Inrainstrasse.
  3. After about 100m there is a turning to the right which is a bridge over the Isar. There is also a signpost which indicates Inrain can be reached either by crossing the bridge or by continuing east. Continue east without crossing the bridge.
  4. Walk 1Km further to Inrain – don’t take the Pirzlkapele/Plattstein path, which is heavily signposted.
  5. When you reach the next bridge to the right, cross it. 100m further on take the footpath on the left which doubles back and rises above Inrain.
  6. Then walk 5Km south-east, firstly on a ledge above the Isar, and then on a path veering right around the Hochwaldkopf to where the path meets the Isartal (1216m).
  7. Turn right south-west and walk 2Km around two half-loops to where the path forks again, and take the left fork south-west for 2Km to Oberbrunn-Alm (1523m).
  8. Then turn north-west 2Km to Zänlkopf (1746m), a further 1Km to Mittagkopf (1638m), veer east 2Km to Sportalm-Hütte.
  9. Finally descend north-east 4Km back to Scharnitz.

Hike end point


We will eat somewhere in Scharnitz; there is quite a nice restaurant at the station. (Please try to make it for the meal – it’s the best part of the day!)
