Train to Mittenwald (from Munich and Innsbruck, no changes),
then approx. ten minute walk to the bottom station of the Karwendelbahn gondola.
Travelling from Munich, take the A95 to Garmisch-Partenkirchen, then the B2 via Klais to Mittenwald. “Karwendelbahn” exit. Cross underneath the cable car line and turn right into the free carpark. Travelling from Innsbruck, take the main road towards Garmisch, travelling via Seefeld to Scharnitz. Do not take the turn into the village itself: about three kilometres after the Mittenwald exit you will see a turning to the Karwendelbahn gondola.
