We've never had such a terrible bergbahn experience in the region. Generally they are a highlight. Not this one. 1) Costs were 26 Euro round trip per person. + 3 Euro deposit (better to remember to get that back at the end of your journey....More

If you are a walker, the Karwendelbahn may disappoint, as, apart from the dangerous looking 3 hour track to the bottom, there is a 20 minute rim walk from the top. The view is stark ie it is rocky and mountainous withou very much green....More

First, if you have a fear of heights or crowded spaces, maybe this isn't for you. But otherwise, it's very cool. The gondola takes you up to the top of the Karwendalspitz where a number of trails go up and around the mountain. The views...More

Took the 25 person gondola to the top then walked the short circular route. The walk was possible in unsuitable shoes despite the disapproving looks from people with stout shoes and walking poles.

We had just hiked up to the summit and took the Karwendelbahn down to save our knees, and although it wasn't cheap it was a great end to a fun hike. The cable car inspired confidence, and the bergstation at the top was very luxurious.
