The Spronser Rötel, or Rötelspitze is a bit overshadowed by its neighbors, the Tschigat and the Mutspitze. However, it is a beautiful peak in the course of an exciting circular trail in the Texelgruppe. The Texel Group Nature Park is known for its thick pine woods, sun-lit meadows, high moorland, lonely Alpine pastures and little farms, steep rock faces, tumbling streams, crystal-clear lakes and imposing mountain peaks.

Turn-by-turn directions

The starting point of this beautiful mountain tour is the Leiter Alm mountain hut that you can comfortably reach by taking the chair lift from Algund/Lagundo and the gondola basket lift from Vellau/Velloi. First hike along the Meraner Höhenweg high alpine trail no. 24 westwards until the Hochganghaus refuge (1,839 m) and continue along the steep, exposed trail no. 7 secured with ropes and chains up to the Hochgangscharte pass (2,455 m). From there, trail no. 10 leads eastwards to the Rötelspitze peak (2,625m). Take the same route to return to the Leiter Alm mountain hut (trails no. 10, no. 7 and no. 24). Hikers with a good physical condition can also choose a slightly longer descent: From the Hochgangscharte pass, trail no. 7 leads above the Langsee lake and later meets trail no. 22 that takes you past the Grünsee lake down to the Oberkaser Alm mountain hut. Continue along trail no. 22 past the Kaserlacke and the Pfitscherlacke lakes until the junction with trail no. 25B that you follow up until the Taufenscharte pass (about 100 metres of altitude difference). Descend along the rather steep trail with serpentines until you meet trail no. 24 (Meraner Höhenweg high alpine trail) and follow it until the Leiter Alm mountain hut, where you take the gondola basket lift to Vellau/Velloi and then the chair lift or bus back to Algund/Lagundo.
