Kalkkögel
hardYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow Star(6)
Length: 56.8 mi • Est. Multi-day
The Stubaier Höhenweg long-distance hiking trail leads over 5,000 vertical meters and 8 huts at almost 90 kilometers. It goes around the Staubaier valley on one of the most beautiful but demanding high altitude hiking trails in the Eastern Alps. The hike is divided into 7 stages, but can be arranged as you wish. The absolute highlight of the route are the many glaciers between Dresdner and Bremer Hütte. The route is classified as a black mountain path and leads through alpine terrain. Endurance, sure-footedness, the right equipment and a head for heights are basic requirements. It doesn't matter in which direction the high-altitude hiking trail goes. Both directions are possible. From each hut you can also descend into the valley and ascend again if you want to complete the long hike in stages.Show more

Length: 12.2 mi • Est. 6 h 54 m
Starting point: At the paid parking lot (4 euros) at the Ober Iss hut. Ascent through the gate at the Ober Iss hut, a wide forest path leads first in a westerly direction. Soon a narrow path branches off to the right and it goes up in many serpentines through trees and pines. Now the flat grounds of the Alpeiner Alm open up. Here you can already see the Franz-Senn-Hütte, which we reach via the next valley step (approx. 1 hour). Directly behind the hut we cross the Alpeiner Bach over a bridge and hike into the valley along the flat, long valley floor. At a height of about 2,240 m you come to a confusing marking: Here the path splits without any further signs. Do not let it irritate, and use the path on the left, where after about 300 m a stone marking with "Old" and "New" appears. Both paths lead to the Aperen Tower, with the new climb being clearly the nicer one. Along the Alpeiner Bach it winds its way up the steep step in countless serpentines. The foothills of the Alpeiner Ferners now open up here. At the next fork in the road we turn right and climb steeply up a moraine ridge - which takes us further west on the glacier - to the stone marker "Tower". Now over a lot of rock, first up, then cross a rubble field in a north-easterly direction. Then the view of the Aperen Tower opens up and the rest of the way is clearly visible: the last 100 meters of altitude lead over two beautiful glacial lakes to the summit cross. Fantastic view of the surrounding glaciers as well as views down to the valley floor of the Franz-Senn-Hütte and the entire Oberbergal up to the Kalkkögeln. Descent: Like the ascent or on the moraine ridge, follow the markings of the old path, which meets again in the valley floor on the way to the Franz Senn hut. Shortly before the Alpeiner Alm, the winter path can also be used to descend into the valley to the car park. INTERMEDIATE GOAL: Hell's throat via ferrata At the beginning of the insurance, descend through a few boulders into the dark throat of Hell (A). Then cross over the rushing glacier stream to the left (B). With the help of iron clips on a small heel (B / C). With a more moral than technically difficult step to the other side of the stream (B). Over an overhang (C) into a narrow gap (B) and through this back to the light. Via blocks (A) to the junction of the "Hexenkessel" (small black label). From here three options: Rock bridge: Either cross the stream again over a rock bridge (A / B) and over a short steep step to the exit (B / C). Hexenkessel (direct entry): Descend into the Hexenkessel (D) with very little footstep and slippery. Cross the stream below the rock bridge on a single rope bridge (E). Steep up with the help of iron clamps (C) and over the final steep step (B / C) to the exit. Hexenkessel: Past the direct entrance to the Hexenkessel (A) and slightly overhanging down (C). Cross to the left under the rock bridge (C / D) and around a rock nose (C / D) into the cauldron. Further way see above. Complementary to the difficulties: Variant Hexenkessel to E. Fels and insurance mostly wet. Without self-protection, if you fall, there is a risk of drowning in the glacier stream. Witch cauldron not suitable for children. Equipment: Complete via ferrata equipment, possibly rainwear (spray from the glacier stream) and short sling with screw carabiner (for the cauldron). Although part of the via ferrata is underground, the lighting conditions are sufficient even without a headlamp.Show more

Length: 6.2 mi • Est. 4 h 8 m
Start your white water hike at the bus stop at the Nürnberger Hütte car park. For those who have the StubaiCard, the use of the shuttle bus is free. You will then be directed to the newly laid out path to the quarry and the Rütz. There the path leads barrier-free through the spectacular Ruetz cataract, through which the water rushes sometimes quickly and sometimes slowly. Information boards explain the water levels and special features of a glacier stream to hikers. We can take a break at the Tschangelair Alm or hike slightly uphill along the Rütz to the Grawaer Wasserwand with its resting platform. There you should relax in the wooden deck chairs and breathe in the fine mist of the Grawa waterfall. These microparticles of water are so small that they can penetrate the finest branches of the lungs and clean them. Now it goes steeply uphill on newly laid wooden walkways to the viewing platforms at the Grawa waterfall. You climb steeply and walk into the valley to the Sulzenaualm. There are many wood carvings in the garden of the Alm. After this enjoyable refreshment, you hike back on the old mountain path to the Grawa Alm. Here, too, you can have a bite to eat in the cozy hut or drive straight to the bus stop on the street. Tip: The hike can be continued on the wild water trail to the Sulzenauhütte. You have an impressive view of the Sulzenaufall. The water of this unique waterfall shoots like a silver arrow in a thin plume over 200 meters directly onto the wonderfully green and flat Alm Sulzenaualm. Especially in the early afternoon, the waterfall glitters in all its facets, hissing and stinging and finally makes a wonderful water mushroom. If you feel like it, you can still dangle your feet in the small streams and meanders on the flat alpine pasture.Show more

Both huts are managed and the tour can also be done in the other direction. The Franz-Senn-Hütte is located at 2147m and is the largest and one of the most modern in the Innsbruck section of the Austrian Alpine Club. It is an ideal starting point for further hikes, mountain tours or ski mountaineering tours. The Starkenburger Hut is at 2237m, and wonderful tours can also be started from here.Show more

The last stage of the Stubai High Trail leads us from the Innsbrucker Hütte over the Pinnistal back to the Stubai Valley. There are no difficulties here - a narrow path leads from the Innsbrucker Hütte down to the Karalm. From the Karalm it is then leisurely along the forest path to Neustift. You should allow around 3 to 4 hours for the hike.Show more

The hutkeeper recommends the wild Hinterbergl, as the snow could be in places still good. At 10 to 8 you will actually trot in the direction of the SW into the shallow valley into the Höllenrachen (2192m). After the first third of the route it becomes steeper from 2300m, but flattens after 200Hm. Turn right and climb usually moderately steeply towards W until you reach the left edge moraine of the Alpeiner remote. On this you go towards SW, soon in a wide right arc to the foothills of the hidden mountain remote and climb right hand to the Turmscharte (3126m) on. The following descent offers everything from vivid harsh to wind-pressed snow, breakage and piste-like snow drifting, only no powder.Then drive in the direction of SO on the edge of the glacier to Alpein Ferner, where turn left to the Oberbergbach following the direction of NO back to the hut.Show more

Phenomenal views from the top. Bit of a scramble after the saddle point, but well marked throughout. About 2/3 to the top there is a pretty exposed section of gravel that's somewhat difficult to get traction on. Would recommend bringing trekking poles.Show more
