This hike starts at the Arzkasten car park and follows the path past the guesthouse of the same name. After the fountain, turn right and follow the forest road north towards the Lehnberghaus mountain hut. After about 15 minutes, you'll come to a fork in the road. Turn left before the bridge and follow the "Bachweg" trail along the stream and through the forest. The path provides plenty of opportunities to enjoy impressive views of the Mieming Range, for example the Wankspitze peak (2,209 m). After just under an hour, the trail turns sharply right, away from the stream, and a short but quite steep path leads straight up to the forest road. From there, it's only a few metres to the Lehnberghaus mountain hut.

For the hike back, you can either double back along the same route or follow the forest road.

Optional route extension to "Lacke" viewing platform (1,704 m): From the Lehnberghaus, a hiking trail leads uphill towards "Lacke", first climbing up through alpine meadows and then continuing through the forest. When you arrive at Lacke, you'll find a giant picture frame and an impressive viewing platform with views that stretch far along the Inn Valley and over the Mieming Plateau. 

Duration from the Lehnberghaus (one-way): about 30 minutes

Optional route extension to "Wankspitze" summit (2,209 m / difficult): This additional section leads from the Lacke viewing platform to Wankspitze peak. Hike north along the wooded ridge and follow the trail as it snakes upwards and finally follows the final ridge right up to the summit cross. The Wankspitze is located in front of the rugged peaks of the Mieming Range and displays high alpine character. It offers fantastic views over the Mieming Plateau and the Inn Valley to Innsbruck. To the south, you can see the Stubai Alps. 

Duration from the Lacke viewing platform (one-way): about 1.5 hours.

Elevation profile


A weak ridge of high pressure will bring us a rather nice day in the middle of this long-lasting period of bad weather.

It will be clear to cloudy. With the air washed clean by the rain of the last few days, the sun will be even more intense.


At this point, we would prefer to forecast that high pressure will persist, but unfortunately this is not the case: The next area of low pressure will approach causing showers.
