Hike to Mt Seefelder Spitze

Thanks to easy access by cable car, this alpine tour near Seefeld becomes a promising experience without major difficulties.

The Seefelder Spitze and Härmelekopf mountains belong to the most westerly peaks of the Karwendel mountain chain. At Seefeld we take the funicular up to the Rosshütte hut (1,740 m asl), where our hike starts. Path n° 10 proceeds from here along the slope up to the Seefelder Joch ridge (2,060 m asl). There the panorama path to Mt Seefelder Spitze (2,221 m asl) starts. The view stretches from the Alpine divide across the Mieminger Range to the Zugspitze, and from Mittenwald an der Isar in Bavaria to the valleys of the Karwendel mountain chain.

The path proceeds downhill and uphill again and reaches the Reither Scharte, a wind gap between Mt Reither Spitze and Mt Härmelekopf. These peaks can be climbed along fixed-rope routes. From here we follow path n° 79 which proceeds slightly downhill to the mountain station of the Härmelekopf Cable Car. By this cable car we hover across the Hermannstal valley to the Rosshütte mountain hut where the funicular takes us down to Seefeld again.

This 4 km long hike in the high mountains can be managed within about 2 hours. Surefootedness is obligatory. On clear days the view is unforgettable!
