Forecast

Weak weather fronts with thundery air masses are approaching from France. It will not be able to keep them away completely and this is why clouds will form around midday after a bright morning and produce thunderstorms and showers in the evening.

Tendency

The area of low pressure that is building over Central Europe today will also affect our weather here, unfortunately. It will not bring continuous rain, but very changeable weather conditions with only short sunny spells and showers or thunderstorms.

Starting at Arzkasten car park, take the steep Alpsteig path to the Marienbergalm mountain hut. From there, follow the gravel path towards Marienbergjoch. Just below the Marienbergjoch ridge, a trail leads west towards the Handschuhspitze. You need to be sure-footed for this steep alpine path, which crosses scree fields and leads up the mountain to the summit. The views from the top are fantastic.
