Forecast

On Friday low pressure will rise on, but as the weather has showed itself at its best for the last few days, we should not worry about the approaching short period of bad weather! We will see thick cloud all day long and it will be unstable.

Tendency

Saturday morning will still be cloudy and showers cannot be excluded. In the course of the day, however, the sun will gain the upper hand. Sunday will bring. On Sunday and on Monday foehn winds will blow again.

GPX DownloadRoute to start

This hike starts behind the Pfaffenhofer Alm mountain hut (=Widdersbergalm) and zigzags ever higher up the mountain. After about 45 minutes, you will come to a turnoff. Follow the signs towards Sonnkarköpfl. Once the trail leaves the forest, it continues over barren terrain, first on a north-facing slope and later through a corrie on a south-western slope up to the summit. From the Sonnkarköpfl peak, hike back the same way until you reach the turnoff that leads east to the "Oberhofer Melkalm". This section takes you downhill over vast fields of alpine roses to the Sonnkarhütte mountain hut (not open to the public) and then over alpine meadows to the Oberhofer Melkalm mountain hut. Finally, take the Bettlersteig trail that starts behind the hut and follow it back to the starting point at the Pfaffenhofer Alm mountain hut (=Widdersbergalm).


Tips | notes: It is possible to get a driving permit (fees apply) from the local authority in Pfaffenhofen. This saves you about 2.5 hours of walking time. The journey is possible in a normal car. Please note: after heavy rainfall, the road is difficult to drive and an all-terrain vehicle is recommended.
