Turn-by-turn directions

From Lappach to here the road is a narrow, winding one-way mountain road (subject to toll). You hike on the eastern, right side of the lake heading into the valley until at the end of the lake you turn off to the right following the signs for Chemnitzer Hütte (2419m). You can either stay on the forest road or take the shorter way on trail nr. 24 which leads you to Neves Alm and further on to Chemnitzer/Nevesjoch Hütte (lodge) (2419 m). From the lodge you continue on heading northwest on trail nr. 1 and go through marvellous glacier terrain passing under the mighty 3000 m high mountains of Turnerkamp and Gr. Möseler. The route continues for a long time with some slight ascents and descents until you reach the Eisbruggjoch/Edelraut Hütte (2545m). From there you turn off onto trail nr. 26 heading east and then finally reach the west bank of the Neves Reservoir at its orogr. right bank side heading out of the valley. Finally cross the reservoir’s high dam and you are at your starting place.
