Ellmauer Tor

Ellmauer Tor

Description

You begin at the Wochenbrunner Alm hiking starting point and head towards the Gaudeamushütte mountain hut. Continue on trail no. 812 across Alpine meadows, through mountain pines and later across scree to the Ellmauer Tor rock saddle. You are now at the heart of the Wilder Kaiser and, with some luck, can observe climbers on the impressive rock faces. The return trip follows the same trail to the Wochenbrunner Alm mountain hut, where you can round off this beautiful hike by treating yourself to a local delicacy – a Kaiserschmarrn (shredded pancake).

Tip: for experienced mountain walkers, we recommend heading back either via the Jubiläumssteig (black mountain path) to the Gruttenhütte mountain hut or via the Bergsteigergrab to the Gaudeamushütte mountain hut and back to the starting point.

TIP:
Thursdays - guided tour with a Tyrolean mountain hiking guide.
Inform yourself about details, dates and registration.
