Tour information

After a comfortable journey in the gondola, we start this wonderful hike at the Alpenrosenbahn’s middle station or at the Gasthaus Maierhof where there are parking facilities in case you choose to arrive by car.  
Below the parking area at the Gasthaus Maierhof, we walk to the left over the bridge and follow the road a short way downhill. The signpost "Wasserfallweg" (Waterfall Trail) leads us then uphill to the left in a sharp right bend, past several waterfalls, initially to the Hampferalm and its chapel. Stop here for a while and enjoy the magnificent view of the surrounding mountain world. After a further ascent through forest and alpine pastures we reach a farm track which leads us to a wide fork in the road.
Info: If you follow the forest road uphill here, you will reach the Fleidingalm - the road then forks to the right towards the Brechhornhaus or to the left towards the mountain-top station of the Alpenrosenbahn.
