Forecast

Friday marked the beginning of a period of nice summer weather as the area of high pressure which has built in over the Alps will stay for quite a few days. The weather will therefore on Sunday continue to be bright and clear and the few cumulus clouds which may appear during the afternoon should stay harmless.

Tendency

High pressure over Europe will further increase and the mercury will continue to rise!

THE SELLRAIN VALLEY MOUNTAIN HUT TOUR

Seven days, 80 kilometres and 5,700 vertical metres – these are the hard facts of the Sellrain Valley Mountain Hut Tour (Sellrainer Hüttenrunde), a mountain-climbing adventure for experienced mountaineers. This long-distance hiking trail requires high fitness levels and mountaineering experience. It is a difficult route that places high demands on your body.

 

A light pack – containing as little as possible while still including everything you need for the mountains – makes the hike easier. There is no baggage transport option on this route. Please be sure to research the weather and terrain before setting off. The landlords at the various mountain huts can also provide helpful advice. They know the area like the back of their hands and are happy to help. Please be sure to heed their advice.

Mountain climbing in seven stages

The tour begins at an altitude of 900 metres above sea level in the village of Sellrain, which is located at the entrance to the Sellrain Valley. The highest point of the tour is the Schöntalspitze peak at an altitude of 3,000 metres. The trail is broken down into seven stages that lead via numerous summits and mountain huts, stopping along the way at the Potsdamer Hütte, the Westfalenhaus, the Pforzheimer Hütte, the Schweinfurter Hütte, the Bielefelder Hütte and the Dortmunder Hütte. These mountain huts all serve delicious Tyrolean cuisine and provide rustic accommodation options in relaxing and peaceful settings. To ensure you can enjoy the peace and quiet and rest your tired legs, it is essential to book accommodation in advance!
