High altitude tour from Gasthof Fiegl along the Windachtal to the Siegerlandhütte. The following day we climbed the Scheiblehnkogel and thus for the first time above 3000m and on the Rückweg again past the Siegerlandhütte to the Hildesheimer Hütte and second Übernachtung. On the third day we continued along the Gaisskar and Windachferner glaciers to the Hochstubai hut for the third and last night at 3174m. The next morning we also climbed the Hoher Nebelkogel, our highest point, and then back down into the valley to the Kleblealm.

The tour begins with a long stretch through the Windach valley without much of an incline, which only comes shortly before the first hut, as you are already quite far up. From then on, the tour continues with clear uphill and downhill stretches, but always with a breathtaking view and several lakes along the way.

Author’s recommendation

The sunset from the Hochstubaihütte was great.

Tips and hints

Huts definitely need to be booked in advance and the one on the Hochstubaihütte is only half board, otherwise the transport to the hut is not worth it.

Turn-by-turn directions

The trail began at the Gasthaus Fiegl, from where it first went through the valley for a while with a slight incline. The trail runs a little wider in the valley at the beginning, but quickly turns into a trample path, which then also follows the rest of the route. The path is almost always easily recognisable on the direct paths between the huts. At the first summit, where the path is almost all scaffolding, it was often a bit difficult and you had to keep a good lookout for the markings, but it was easily doable. The second more difficult part was after the Hildesheimer Hütte, where you have to cross the Ferner. There the path goes relatively at the beginning of the Ferner onto it, before you come to a steep incline on the path. Follow this to the other side, where a path without a glacier branches off to the left from the lower part of the lift and leads back to solid ground.

Buses from Sölden go up to the two alpine pastures a few times a day. However, it is essential to check the times beforehand.

To Sölden, there we could park for free with a certificate and then took a bus to Gasthof Fiegl.

Equipment

You need normal mountaineering equipment (knee-high hiking boots, poles, rucksack and rainproof clothing), gaiters or crampons are recommended for hikers who are not sure-footed.

.

The tour has been walkable this summer without any problems, as it has been a very hot summer and a lot has melted away.
