R41 Schwaz » Lamsenjochhütte
  |   5h30   |   16 km   |   1464 m   |   71 m

After crossing the River Inn, the silicate subsoil changes to limestone. This soon becomes obvious upon entering the Karwendel Alpine Park. Mountain pines take over above the tree line of closed woodland and you will reach the Lamsenjoch hut at the foot of the mighty Lamsenspitze peak after a walk over increasingly rocky terrain.

    A Schwaz, nous avons dormi au gasthof Einhorn Schaller. Très bien.
    L'organisation à Lamsenjochhutte n'est pas la meilleure car il faut attendre 16h30 (et faire la queue...) pour connaître son dortoir, régler repas et petits dej... Comme l'étape est assez courte il faut patienter.

    The hiking path is closed due to falling stones. The alternative is the mountainbike trail (fahrweg).

    We arrived at Lamsenjochhutte on 15/6/11, and climbed the Spitze the next morning.

    The hut at Lamsenjoch rents via ferratta gear--so we climbed the Lamsen Spitze. Wonderful
