Forecast

A ridge of high pressure brought an improvement in the weather on Wednesday. It will, however, not persist against a new area of low pressure approaching from Iceland! ”From Iceland” does not sound very good and is not very good! A large cold front will move into our region causing thunderstorms which may be quite heavy.

Tendency

On Friday, Saturday and Sunday we will still feel the effects of the last low pressure area. The weather will be unstable and showers and thunderstoms may form at any time.

The Sellraintal and Stubai Alps

High-Alpine Climbing amongst the Three-Thousanders

Historic, high-alpine landscapes characterise the Sellraintal hiking area, which stretches all the way to the Stubai Alps. Many challenging routes make this a worthwhile location for experienced mountaineers, and the villages of Sellrain, gries and St Sigmund even carry the moniker of ‘climbing villages’. These are the starting points for fascinating one-day and multi-day tours, and a perfect way to experience alpine wildlife up close. A further bonus is that at this altitude, hay-fever sufferers can breathe easily, due to the lack of pollen and dust.

Information about the Area

  • Views of countless three-thousanders
  • Located between 900 and 3,500m above sea level

The Sellrain Mountain Hut Circuit is a high-alpine, multi-day circular hike through the entire Kühtai-Sellraintal valley region. It can be done by various routes and shows off all the many wonderful features of the Sellrain mountains such as the massive and glacier-covered granite gneiss mountains in the far Lüsenstal valley, the gentle hills around the Fotschertal valley and the mighty Acherkogel high above the Tyrolean Oberland. Comprising seven days, 80 kilometres and a challenging elevation gain of 5,700 m, the Sellrain Mountain Hut Circuit is a very special kind of mountaineering experience. The tour starts in Sellrain at 900 metres and its highest point is the Schöntalspitze at more than 3,000 metres. Its seven stages take in numerous refuges where you can enjoy delicious Tyrolean cuisine, rustic accommodation and restful peace and quiet. The stops on the tour are the Potsdamer Hütte, the Westfalenhaus and the Pforzheimer, Schweinfurter, Bielefelder and Dortmunder mountain huts.
