'''Scharnitz Abbey (Kloster Scharnitz) was a monastery of the Benedictine Order in Mittenwald in Bavaria.

The monastery, dedicated to Saints Peter and Paul, was founded before 763 by Reginperht and Irminfried, believed to be members of the Bavarian noble family of the Huosi. Arbeo of Freising was the first abbot. However, between 769 and 772, on the advice of Arbeo, who had become Bishop of Passau in 764, the monastery was resettled to Schlehdorf Abbey on the Kochelsee, under abbot Atto, counted as the first abbot of Schlehdorf. The reasons for the move so soon after the foundation are not known.
