The Nederkogl is Sölden's local mountain. Mighty it appears at the head of the valley above Sölden.

The ascent over the Lenzenalm and passing the junction of the Nedersee is steadily steep, but the more you will be rewarded at the summit by the magnificent panoramic view of the large three-thousand-meter peaks of the Ötztaler and Stubaier Alps.


Author’s recommendation

On the descent, the Lenzenalm is right on the path and invites you to make a stop.

Busstopp Lenzenalm - Zwieselstein/Sölden

Turn-by-turn directions

The hike starts directly at the Lenzenalm bus stop or the Lenzenalm parking lot.

From there it takes approx. 1 hour to the Lenzenalm. It goes comfortably up a wide path through the forest. Always slightly uphill, but not very strenuous. The last ascent to the hut is a little steeper, but from there you can enjoy the view of Gurgl.

From the Lenzenalm you walk briefly through the forest - over alpine meadows to the nearby Nedersee (2435m, short detour possible) - on a very steep path via switchbacks you reach the northeast ridge. Over rough stone blocks it goes either on the ridge (marked) or in the east flank (also marked) to the summit cross.

The descent from the Nederkogl is the same route as the ascent!
