The Hornbahn Russbach takes you comfortably and simply to the 1.450m high Hornspitz. There you will find numerous and varied hiking trails next to Bruno's mountain world. Whether walkers, "push chair driver", hut lovers or passionate hikers, there is something for everyone. If you prefer a more leisurely pace, you can explore the alpine pasture area with the little train “Ameisenexpress”.

Author’s recommendation

A visit to Bruno's mountain world at the Horn is very rewarding.
