The Schildenstein is a 1613 m high mountain in the Mangfall Mountains in Bavaria. The peak can be reached after an easy hike from Kreuth over the Geißalm and Königsalm. The route via the Wolfsschlucht, on the other hand, is made secure by wire cables. The Blauberge are connected to the East side of the Schildenstein.
