Tour information

The tour starts at the Gasthof Eiserne Hand in Fieberbrunn and turns right into the Hörndlinger Graben. Follow the path into the valley, through the tunnels and past the small waterfalls "Schreiende Brunnen". Follow the gravel road to the valley station of the TirolS Bahn or to the "Pulvermacherscherm" snack station. TIP: Take the tour in the morning and have breakfast at the Pulvermacherscherm!
The tour 259 "Eiserne Hand - Hörndlingergraben" ends here: 4.5 km / 240 m / 50 min driving time / medium 

Approx. 350 m before the Pulvermacherscherm, the tour 278 Gerstboden  branches off to the left. It goes up the serpentines of the "Hennerleiter". After the first steep bends, keep to the right in the direction of Gerstbodenalm (no refreshment stop!). Continue up the forest road to the Wetterkreuz (chairlift station). Pass the station, keep slightly left and continue uphill - above the reservoir - to the edge of the forest. Here you have completed the metres in altitude uphill! Cross the meadow and follow the gravel road downhill towards Spielberghaus. If you have a choice, you have a choice: either stop off at the Spielberghaus or continue for a few minutes to the Burgeralm. It pays off in both cases! From the Burgeralm back down into the valley to Gasthof Eiserne Hand.

Total tour 259 / 278 / Hennerleiter: 21.3 km / 880 m uphill / 3h40 driving time / difficult
