Taking the cable car (Eggalmbahn) from Tux-Lanersbach up to the mountain station, we reach our starting point which is located just above the tree line. The quite flat alpine path towards Waldhoar leads under the Grüblspitze past the Egger Skialm. Soon we change on a smaller trail. In our view comes the Tuxer Hauptkamm and its particularly Olperer. Further on, our contemplative course traverses some pasty pasture and passes over the tree line where you continue under the “Beillift”. Cross a few small mountain streams, with the Ahornspitze in our view (direction:  of the valley). Wet sections of the path are laid out with wooden planks, as known from Scandinavian hiking areas. After a small descent opens at a magnificent viewpoint near the Waldhoaralm deep down the Lanersbacher valley. Shortly afterwards, you turn onto a poorly treaded trail. Remaining on this path you will reach in a moderate manner the moorland of the Southeast ridge and a terrain level called Waldhoarspitze with a summit cross at the Grüblspitze. Surrounded by an overwhelming sea of the rich crimson alpine roses. On the bottom of the mightly Kalkwand-Felsabstürze (limestone) one can recognize in the Hochtal of the Junsstream the Stoankasern well known for its cheese production (incl. show cheese dairy). From here on, bit by bit we lose the Rastkogelmassif out of sight while descending over the ridge “Beil” all the way down to the Eggalm. A splendid ridge path hike! The cable car brings us conveniently back to Tux-Lanersbach.

no restaurants/inns (refreshments) on the way.

In the heart of the Tux Alps the crystal clear Eiskarsee (lake), just situated in a prohibited area (for military operations) Wattener Lizum, is hiding. It’s a true oasis of silence. Shortly before the mountain road of Tux-Vorderlanersbach reaches Geislerhof, we continue at the junction to the winding, paved Almweg to the Geiselalm. Upwards it goes while enjoying wonderful views over the Tux peaks and alpine meadows. Where the path forks carry on until shortly under the Hobalm passing by the Horbarbach (stream) also known as the Geiselbach into the valley “Almwanne”. Again, we ascent, this time over a forest path. Nortwest we can spot the Hippoldspitze (peak) now. After passing the junction and two other loops take the right path until the end of the ascent just under the Almkogl on the westbound hiking trail. Flat on the hillside carry on until you reach a mighty boulder that naturally rounds off the Hobarbach and join later on the peaceful valley end just under the Torspitze at Vallruckalm. Shortly before reaching the Alm a sign points out the “Eiskarsee”. At the junction carry on left over the Schrofenhillside uphill. At the new track underneath the Hippoldspitze the signpost "Eiskarsee" shows us the way to the next ascent, this time through the gentle Schrofenarea. Later we carry on over a final steep hillside to the Eiskarsee. Back on the Vallruckalm over an easy mountain trail again, along the Hobarbach (stream). After a waterfall our walk comes to an end. The ascent leads us past the Hobalm back to our starting point: the Geislerhof.

Challenging Alpine mountain and summit tours

How to heighten your senses • Hike between glacier ice and 3,000 meter peaks

Starting point: Sommerbergalm 2,100 m (ascent by cable car)

Type: demanding one-day hike, no proneness to dizziness. path no. 326, 527, 17, 324

Walking time: 6 hours

Route: Sommerbergalm 2,100 m – Kasererscharte 2.446 m – Frauenwand 2,541 m – Tuxer-Joch-Haus 2,313 m – Weitental 1,882 m – Hintertux 1,500 m

Vertical drop: 555 m ascent, 1,041 m descent

Highest point: Frauenwand 2,541 m

End: Hintertux 1,500 m

The lookout point at Kasererscharte, at 2.446 m, affords a particularly good view down to Schmirn. In order to start your hike over Kasererscharte and to Frauenwand, first take the cable car from Hintertux (1,500 m) to Sommerbergalm (2,100 m). From there, walk along Spannagelweg, under Ramsmooslift to a trail crossing (1/2 hr.) and then continue along a narrow path up to Kasererscharte. Alpine roses, St.-John’s-wort and wild gentian provide a gentle contrast to the mighty glacier and the famous peaks and steep rock faces. Lärmstange (2,686 m), Olperer (3,476 m), Gefrorene-Wand-Spitze (3,288 m) and Hoher Riffler (3,231 m) compete for the spectator’s favor. After climbing for about 2 hours, on Kasererscharte, the scenery changes. On a good day, the view extends all the way to the Ötz Valley and Stubai Alps. Far below is Schmirn. Another place for a spectacular view is the peak of Frauenwand, at 2,541 m. The ascent to the peak, the highlight of the day, along the well marked and well laid out trail takes about 30 minutes. Behind it, facing Tuxer Joch, is a peaceful alp. Another 1/2 hour and you’re at the Tuxer-Joch-Haus (2,313 m). There, of course, you’ll need refreshments in order to enjoy the view. Your descent takes you through Weitental, past Schleierfall (waterfall) to Hintertux.
