Admire masterpieces of international artists, visit Ötzi‘s pre-historic hunting base and take a glimpse of the old Wildspitze summit cross overlooking the peak. Walking past the rare Alpine moorland, you cross the popular suspension bridge. Back to Vent on the same route or along the asphalt road.

Destination

Martin-Busch-Hütte

Turn-by-turn directions

ACROSS RAMOLJOCH TO NIEDERTAL

From Ramolhaus via the dead ice of Ramolferner there is a steep passage up to Ramoljoch. Fixed ropes and footholds make the ascent easier. Down in serpentines next to Spiegelferner glacier, the path is fairly flat. On the side moraine of Spiegelferner you turn left at about 2.800 m towards Martin-Busch-Hütte where Diemweg trail starts. Short ascent to the Alpine pastures. Hike across the slopes of Niedertal without change in elevation. At the end of Diemweg trail you cross the bridge and follow the steep path through the mountain pines. From the old shepherd‘s hut the trail continues to Martin-Busch-Hütte for about 1 hour.
