Hildesheimer Hütte (2.900 m) - Gamsplatzl (3.018 m) - Siegerlandhütte (2.710 m)
Spectacular Gamsplatzl vista point and Lake Triebenkarsee are the highlights of this glacier-free tour from Hildesheimer Hütte to Siegerlandhütte, which is tucked away in one of the last corners of Windachtal. From Hildesheimer Hütte you walk down for about 10 minutes until a trail branches off to the left. Follow this trail down to River Gaiskarbach. Continue across the moraine of famous Pfaffenferner and – sometimes steeply – through boulers and rubble to Gamsplatzl (there is a short section with fixed cables for your safety).
This small viewing plateau with its many stone cairns provides an ideal place to take a rest and enjoy the marvelous views of the Stubai Alps with Zuckerhütl (at 3507 meters the tallest peak in the Stubai Mountains) and Ötztal Alps. From the plateau the trail switchbacks steeply down to Lake Triebenkarsee (2700m) below the snout of Triebenkarlas Glacier. On the hottest of summer days there are usually some intrepid swimmers who are willing to dip themselves into this cool mountain lake …The next stretch is easy and has only little elevation change. The trail crosses the steep slopes of Scheiblehn and then climbs gently to Siegerlandhütte.
Enjoy a both comfortable and relaxing train ride to the train station in Ötztal Bahnhof. You get off the train in ÖTZTAL Bahnhof where you change to a public bus or local taxi. The current bus schedule can be found at: http://fahrplan.vvt.at
