Tour information

Start this tour at the toll booth Zwieselbrücke at the end of Kelchsau (free parking - paying EUR 4,00 toll for the car you can even drive on). Follow the signpost and walk to the left, over the wooden bridge into the valley Kurzer Grund. The path leads you past a wonderful stud-farm and after a moderate incline you get to a reservoir and shortly afterwards to the traditional alpine dairy farm Niederkaser where you should not walk past without a visit - enjoy the marvellous view while having a hearty snack and taste the original Tyrolean Speck as well as some of the delicious cheese specialties which you can of course take back home too.

Follow the road into the valley until you get to the inn Gasthof Wegscheid, which is well-known for its exquisite traditional cuisine and family-friendly atmosphere.

From Gasthof Wegscheid, you can hike on to the refuge Neue Bamberger Hütte (1756 m) which can be reached within 1.5 hrs. and represents an ideal starting point for further hiking or ski tours
