Best time of year
It is recommended to wear hiking equipment such as breathable and weather-adapted outdoor clothing, ankle-high mountain boots, wind, rain and sun protection, cap and possibly gloves. It is also important to have enough food, as well as a first-aid package, a cell phone and a hiking map.
The start is at the Freizeitarena and then to the Giggijoch mountain station. Via the roadway can be partly shortened via pasture land to Rotkoglhütte. Very nice view of the Rettenbach glacier and the mountains of the Stubai Alps.
