The Schöttelkarspitze is a 2050  m above sea level. NHN high mountain of the Soiern group in the Bavarian Karwendel . King Ludwig II of Bavaria had a pavilion built on top of it , which he named Belvedere , so that he could take his tea there. The pavilion burned down at the beginning of the 20th century.

Even today, the construction activity on behalf of Ludwig II of Bavaria can be recognized by the fact that the path from Soiernhaus up to the summit of the Schöttelkarspitze is unusually wide for such a route and in exactly the same width as the royal sedan chair and its porters was needed.

The summit can be reached from Krün or Wallgau either via the Soiernhaus on the Soiernseen as an easy mountain tour or via the Seinskopf ( 1961  m above sea level ) and the Feldernkreuz (requires surefootedness in some places). The ridge path to the Soiernspitze also requires surefootedness; however, the official hiking trail is not difficult and often runs a little below the ridge.
