Height: 1,899m 

Route description:

From the hotel, walk in the direction of Congress Centrum Alpbach. The path to the starting point takes you through the village centre, always in an easterly direction (approx. 500m). Via the Blaiksteig path you climb up to the starting point. The second stage takes you in about 30 minutes along a wide road (no cars allowed) via the Marienweg path (no. A20) to the Hösljoch Chapel, where you are accompanied by various Stations of the Cross. At Hösljoch, turn northwards and slowly climb higher. Again and again, you will reach magnificent vantage points. Numerous left and right loops await you in the last stage of the ascent. At the summit, a magnificent panorama opens up to you: Countless peaks, such as Schatzberg, Großer Galtenberg, and Wiedersberger Horn, captivate your gaze.

The descent can be made via the following two variants:

Descent towards Holzalm (trail no. 10 or B28) and back to the starting point.

Tiefenbachklamm gorge

Highlight: the viewing platform at the highest point of the gorge!

Walking time: approx. 2 hours
Level of difficulty: medium

A hike along beautiful Brandenberger Ache in the footsteps of days long gone, when wood drifting was still practised.
Arrival by car: from Kramsach in the direction of the lift car park until you reach Aschau. After about 2km, the entrance to the Tiefenbachklamm gorge will be right in front of you. Park your car along the Aschauerstraße street.
From June to September, you can also take the bus from Brixlegg train station or Kramsach town hall (from Monday to Friday, timetable available at reception). The hike leads along the Brandenberger Ache through an impressive natural landscape characterised by the roaring waters. After approx. 1 hour, you reach the Tiefenbachklamm hut, where you can stop for a fortifying snack or a heart-warming cup of coffee. To return back home, either hike through the gorge or dare the ascent to Brandenberg. As an absolute highlight, you can expect a natural spectacle at the highest point of the gorge.

Steinbergalm pasture

Steinbergalm is famous for its home-produced mountain cheese.

Walking time: approx. 1.30 hours
Level of difficulty: medium
Height: 1,710m

Route description:

Drive to Inneralpbach and leave your car at the Wiedersbergerhorn car park. Now, let’s start the tour. Turn left into the so-called “Luegergraben”. Walk past forests and fir trees until you reach a wooden bridge, where you turn right. Follow the path to a gravel road, then follow the gravel road – always along the stream and past Kühtaialm pasture. After about 1 hour you’ll reach Faulbaumgartenalm pasture where you can stop for a fortifying snack and enjoy sunny moments on the terrace. When you’ve recharged your batteries, continue your hike to Steinbergalm pasture, which is famous for its home-produced mountain cheese.

Local history trail

Insights into nature and local history

Walking time: approx. 2 hours
Level of difficulty: easy

Route description:

Sign-posted trail looping around the village. From pure nature spa resort Der Böglerhof, walk left to the tennis court, where you then follow the path on the right to Hotel Alpbacherhof. Turn left and walk past Hotel Alpbacherhof, where you cross a small bridge. At the fork in the road, turn right and pass Mühlbach bridge. Continue left to Mühlbachweg path. Take the forest trail A3 along the Höslbach stream to the barbecue area, where you will also find a children’s playground and a Kneipp path. The tour continues along Lärchenweg path, past the Thierberg farms and the village of Trat. To return home, walk straight into the village. Not suitable for strollers, but a real highlight for families with children.

Lake Berglsteiner

Colourful information boards, show apiary, doll museum, petting zoo, and more

Walking time: 3 hours
Level of difficulty: medium

Route description:

From Reintaler Ost car park, follow the path to Lake Berglsteiner. Along the path, colourful information boards invite you to kinesiological movement and concentration exercises that support balance and promote coordination and attention. Continue from the east side of the lake via trail no. 11 downhill to the signpost Voldöpper Spitze (left). From here, follow the ascending gravel road until you reach the sign “Schindlerweg” (right). Here you can visit the show apiary of Pumpenhof farm (prior reservation required). Now, turn right again in the direction of Asperhof. There, the doll museum and the petting zoo with snack station invite you to take a break.

The way back leads via trail no. 11 uphill to the sign “Kramsach-Moosen” to the left and back to the car park.

Vorderes Sonnwendjoch

A hike with a view

Walking time: approx. 7 hours
Level of difficulty: difficult
Height: 2,224m

Route description:

With an altitude of 2,224 metres, Sonnwendjoch is the south-easternmost foothill of the Rofan mountain range. Due to the exposed location of the summit, you can enjoy a wonderful view from Unterinntal valley to the Zillertal, Kitzbühel, and Stubai Alps.
The ascent continues until just below the Rosskogel, then you hike along the alpine meadows to the Zireiner See lake (follow the signs to Zireiner See lake). From the west end of the lake, the trail leads you in part quite steeply via the Schafsteig path (via ferrata) to the prominent ascent between Rofanspitze and Sagzahn. Now follows a short but demanding ascent through the chimney to Sagzahn at 2,228m. (You can bypass this part, but will have to plan for an additional 45 minutes). From Sagzahn you now reach Vorderes Sonnwendjoch without difficulty (walking time approx. 3.5 hours from the mountain station). The trail now only leads downhill to the Bayreuther hut or Bergalm pasture.
Our tip: Do not underestimate the descent (1,650 metres in 3.5 to 4 hours) and take your time. In short: a challenging alpine tour with unique panoramic views.

Böglerhof chapel

A place of peace

Walking time: approx. 20 minutes
Level of difficulty: easy

Böglerhof’s chapel is located in the garden between our hotel and Congress Centrum Alpbach – only a few minutes’ walk from pure nature spa resort Der Böglerhof.
