This route leads east from the mountain lift station of the Patscherkofelbahn gondola along the Zirbenweg trail to the Alpenhasthof Boscheben. From there, a path climbs quite steeply up through the forest to the Meissner Haus mountain hut on the south side of the Patscherkofel mountain, where you can enjoy magnificent views of the mountains in the Stubai Valley and the Wipp Valley. From the Meissner Haus, where you can stop for a break and a bite to eat, you hike for a while along a forest path leading out of the idyllic Viggar Valley until you reach the transport cable car (used to move goods). There, cross the stream over a small bridge. This brings you back to the Almenweg trail in the Föhrenwald forest, which you follow for quite some time at a relatively steady altitude to the Patscher Alm mountain hut. From there, the best way to get back to the Patscherkofelbahn gondola is to follow the route along the ski slope, which leads to the middle lift station of the Patscherkofelbahn in just a few minutes.
