Turn-by-turn directions

Start the hike at the Schwaiger Böden parking area (1,720 m) in Lüsen/Luson. Follow trail no. 2  along a wide mountain pasture track up a moderate incline to Geneider Alm mountain hut (1,947 m). Then ascend further north to the Jakobsstöckl (2,026 m), where there’s a small chapel with a cross looking out onto a magnificent panorama.

From Jakobsstöckl, turn left to the north along trail no. 10 past the Grünfelder Alm mountain hut (2,119 m) and on to the summit of the Gampill (2,190 m). From there, admire the views of Bruneck/Brunico as well as the Tauferer Ahrntal Valley, the Zillertaler Alps and Rieserferner Group.

From this highest point of the hike, head north along trail no. 10 until there’s a turning to the left onto trail no. 12/A followed by no. 12 leading to the Kreuzwiesenalm mountain hut (1,924 m). After a longer break, continue along an almost flat track (Schmalzensteig) through the forest and across the meadow on trail no. 2 back to the starting point at the Schwaiger Böden.

Die Parkgebühren der Parkplätze Flitt betragen 4.-€. Der Parkautomat steht in Flitt gleich nach dem Hotel Kompatscherhof am Parkplatz Flitt, hier müssen auch die Tickets für die weiter oben liegenden Parkplätze Oberflitt und Schweiger Böden gezogen werden (oben sind keine Automaten mehr).
