The Hippold is one of the mostly unknown summits of the Tux Prealps. Actually incomprehensible, it offers everything that makes a mountaineer's heart beat faster!

Turn-by-turn directions

From the parking place Lager Walchen, we go to the Aussermelan Alm Niederleger and on to the Aussermelan Alm Hochleger. From the Hochleger we keep heading to the south and follow the path through the wide alpine meadows to the Krovenzjoch (pass). When we reach the Krovenzjoch, we almost made it. Following a steep, marked track we climb the summit of the Hippoldspitze in about 30 minutes.
