This hike leads from the Glungezer mountain station via the summit Glungezer to the Viggartal. Passing the legendary "G'schriebener Stoan", we continue to the magical Blue Lakes; the best place for a long break.

Author’s recommendation

Very colourful during the blossom of the "Alpenrosen".

Turn-by-turn directions

High-altitude hike to the Upper Viggartal landscape protection area.

Down from summit Glungezer on AV-path 333. After an hour you turn left into the valley and climb back up to the Blue Lakes.

The flank uphill to the "G’schriebenen Stoan" ( "Written Stone") (2190m) - a large rock block on which, in addition to some contemporary inscriptions, ancient lettering can also be found. The "G’schriebenen Stoan" may have been a resting place or cult place for hunters and collectors of the Stone Age.

After a last steep step, the Blue Lakes are hidden at 2380m at the foot of the Kreuzspitze. This place invites you to rest.

The way back can be done the same way back - but before that, note the last descent of the Glungezer cable car!

Another option is the way out of the Viggartal via the Meissner Haus to Ellbögen. From there by bus back to Innsbruck.

For experienced mountaineers, the route from summit Glungezer along the Seven Tuxer Summits Route via the Kreuzspitze and down to the Blue Lakes is also recommended.
