Circular route at the top station of the Karwendel cable car

Educational theme path, perfect for a short family hike

Hiking in the mountains does not have to be boring for children. An example is the circular trail of the alpine animals which runs from the top station of the Karwendel cable car. Characters drawn with love accompany the hikers through the stations which introduce the most important representatives of the alpine fauna - from the ibex via the marmot to the red deer.

The hard facts about the circular trail:

  • Where? From the top station to the Bärenbadalm and back to the Alpengasthaus Karwendel and to the top station
  • How long? Ca. 1.5 km
  • How far? Ca. 2.8 km
  • Difficulty? Ca. 146 m height difference
  • Note: The circular trail is only partially suitable for buggies.

About alpine animals and natural treasures

How does it sound when a deer roars? How much can a brown bear weigh? What does a forester do? This and many more questions are answered by the circular trail of the alpine animals at the Zwölferkopf mountain. Together parents and children go on a discovery tour through the Tyrolean Alps which are a habitat for countless animals.

10 different animals of the Alps are introduced along the theme path. Photos, distinguishing features and a profile for every animal offer an entertaining learning experience for smart children. But also the grown-ups can still learn one or the other thing.

For the circular route you need about 1.5 hours. Valuable quality time and active time in the mountain nature combined with a pedagogically meaningful concept - this way the hiking tour with the children in Tyrol’s mountains becomes a relaxed experience for everyone.

Especially if the lookout is a pause after the hike. Following your hiking tour the Alpengasthaus Karwendel invites you to enjoy a bite, for example Tyrolean specialties, coffee, ice cream and cake.

With the circular trail, a family hike for old and young will await you - an experience that we strongly recommend during your holiday at Lake Achensee in Tyrol.
