Author’s recommendation

A side trip to the summit Viggarspitze (approx. 20min from the actual path) makes this tour a 3 summit tour!

Destination

Glungezer, Tulfeinalm

Turn-by-turn directions

The hike starts at the Glungezerbahn mountain station. Follow the Zirbenweg (stone pine path) direction West to the Gasthof Boscheben. Before reaching Boscheben you turn to the right direction South/East and  follow the Glungezer Höhenweg. The path leads us below the Viggarspitze in about 2 hours to the Glungezerhütte. A side trip to the summits Sonnenspitze (2639 m) and Glungezer (2678 m) would be worthwhile here. The Glungezer captivates with a magnificent 360° view of "500 peaks, ridges and yokes".

The descent takes you on the "Panoramasteig" in 1.30 hours or via the "Hirschvoglsteig" to the Tulfeinalm. Here you can take the Glungezerbahn to come town to Tulfes again.
