Seinskopf peak above Isar valley

From one of the smaller peaks of the Soiern Group at a height of about 6420 ft this place offers a first view at this particular side range of the Karwendel. A lovely track from the Isar valley down below at 2870 ft leads here.

Following the trail up the hill and on the other side of the cirque you can see the summit cross of Schöttelkarspitze, which was one of the favourite places of Ludwig II, King of Bavaria. Naturally, he didn't bother to hike all the way up but instead used a comfortable sedan chair carried by his servants to reach a specially erected pavilion.

Turning counter clockwise and following the Valley of the River Isar upstream passing Lake Walchen and two lovely villages (Wallgau and Krün) we see a glimpse of the town of Mittenwald behind the Signalkopf peak. Behind that, to the right of this town the Zugspitze massif can be seen, covered with glaciers. To the left of Mittenwald we get a nice view of the Karwendel range of the Bavarian Alps.
