Tour information

Start this tour from the Hofstattbahn lift in Kelchsau. From there, walk through the village until the bridge Kehlbachbrücke. Right at the bridge the road turns uphill to the right. Follow the road which winds leisurely uphill through the forest to the alpine pasture Höhenbrandalm. Continue the tour right behind the mountain hut and walk across the meadow and along the small forest path to the next forest road which takes you directly to Trockenbachalm. Once there at an altitude of 1480m you have already mastered a large part ot the ascent.     
Now a hiking path takes you through the forest and later along alpine meadows high up to Feldalphorn. This part of the tour is particularly beautiful in the early summer when the alpine roses are in full bloom and the meadows turn into a pink sea. Once at the summit you should allow yourself a pause to take in the amazing view of the surrounding peaks.
After a refreshment walk in southern direction slightly downhill. The hiking path runs directly along the gentle ridge and only shortly before reaching the summit it is getting steeper. Just like Feldalphorn, Schwaigberghorn is a wonderful scenic mountain which allows vistas of the Hohe Salve, the Kitzbüheler Horn, the Wilder Kaiser and many more well-known mountain peaks.

To return from the summit follow the small path which runs to the east in the direction to Kelchsau. The route leads via a wide ridge marked with stakes and through light forests to Neustattalm. After Alpmessaualm you walk again through forests until you get to a forest road which takes you down to Kelchsau in the valley.

During the tour there is no possibility to stop for refreshments. We therefore recommend that you take enough food and drink with you.
