Turn-by-turn directions

LAKE HIKE ON MITTLERER GEIGENKAMM

The first awe-inspiring mountain lake can be found right next to Hauerseehütte and also gave its name to the hut. Here the trail descends moderately past lake Unterer Spitzigsee, then climbs gently in a north-western direction through picture-book Innerbergtal side valley and crosses the slopes above Felderkar cirque. Then a more strenuous section is on the program: the trail switchbacks steeply up to lake Weißer See below Felderjöchl (2800 m), the saddle you have to cross to get to Frischmannhütte.
The footpath travels to the right of the lake and climbs in switchbacks through very steep and rocky terrain towards scenic Felderjöchl (fixed cables). From the saddle the trail drops steeply at the beginning and then levels out and continues through Fernerkar below Ploderferner glacier. Later ther oute descends quickly east of Griesköpfe peaks and through high Alpinemeadows and pasturelands in full bloom to Frischmannhütte.

Public transport

Travel safe and comfortable with the train to the Ötztal Bahnhof train station. Last stop and exit point is the train station Ötztal Bahnhof.
