The Wörner is a 2,476 m high mountain in the Karwendel on the border between Bavaria and Tyrol. It is part of the Northern Karwendel Chain that initially runs northwards to the Wörner and then swings east. The northwest ridge of the Wörner is very striking and easy to make out from many other peaks in the region.
The mountain was probably first climbed from the south in 1853 during Austrian triangulation work; but the first recorded ascent was by Hermann von Barth in 1870, also from the south .
