2-Summit-Tour Karlspitz and Schreinl

Enjoyable hike from the Planneralm over the Kothüttensee and along the ridge to the Karlspitz and further to the Schreinl.
ONE IS NONE. The two for it everything! Up the Almsteig, across the long cirque past the picturesque lake and further uphill to Karlspitz. Here a short break before the mountain pines sweeten the way towards Schreinl. Grandiose views without end.

More information

From the Ennstalbundesstraße (B320) at the Trautenfels traffic circle turn off in the direction of Irdning, Donnersbach, Donnersbachwald. In the village of Donnersbach after the village center turn left towards Planneralm. 12 km long ascent via the toll-free mountain road up to the Planneralm.
Your hiking tour starts from the large parking lot, past the Berg & Tal Infoportal, to the Alpengasthof Grimmingblick. After a few meters you go to the right for a short distance over meadow and forest before you come to the first stony ascent. The path continues over a beautiful cirque to the next ascent (Kothüttensee is on the lower left) and on to the ridge. Along the ridge, with a view of the Karl lakes and the Goldbachsee, the trail leads directly to the summit cross at the Karlspitz. After a short break and the entry in the summit book, you march left along the almost level path. At the end, it's uphill again before you reach the Schreinl. Two summits at once - that's something. You can hardly get enough of this magnificent mountain scenery. You can return along the same path or via the Goldbachscharte, from where it then goes left down into the mountain village.
Go eating to the Gastof Grimmingblick, it's 2 kilometers under the Schrabachalm.
