Turn-by-turn directions

From the Giggijochbahn mountain station, the hiking trail leads down over the ridge to the Sonnblick restaurant.

As an alternative, you can also take the new Hochsölden-Rotkoglbahn.

Follow the road towards the Sonnenhotel Hochsölden out of the valley. You continue to walk across alpine meadows and steep slopes with a wonderful view of Sölden.

Over several ridges of the terrain and past a few puddles of water, you come to a path that divides the way.

There you follow the upper path, which is steeper in the last section and leads you to the Peerlersee.

The descent will take you via the Gransteinalm to the Hochwald Jausenstation and from there via Granstein and Leite back to Sölden.
