Tour description:

From the starting point on path 12, always in the direction of Dürrnbachalmen and Dürrnbachhorn. Then you reach the pasture area of the Dürrnbachalmen. Here the hiking trail climbs steeply under the chairlift to the mountain station of the Dürrnbachhorn chairlift. We recommend an extension (an additional approx. 1 hour walk) to the Dürrnbachhorn - summit with a great view. Return via Wiesenweg no.112 (be careful when it is wet, there is a risk of slipping) via the Dürrnbachalmen and then no. 12 to the Winklmoos-Alm.

Special features: nice hike to the high altitude (1607m), nice view. On this tour you can use the free hiking bus. Please note the timetable!

Tip: avoid the descent via the meadow path when it is wet (risk of slipping). From the mountain station there is also the option of taking the nostalgic chairlift back to Winklmoos.
