Forecast

A look at the barometer will tell us that the air pressure has risen strongly which means that a high pressure area has built over Central Europe!

We will see a calm start to the day with patches of fog and low stratus, a common feature of autumn weather! They will however clear before midday.

Tendency

There are no significant changes expected for the next few days, temperatures will however increase a bit.

Along the Goethetrail to Pfeishütte

The Goetheweg trail starts right next to the Hafelekar mountain lift station and leads east along the ridge. Hikers cross the trail after a few short ascents and descents at the Mühlkarscharte. The route continues along the northern face to the Mandlscharte. After a short descent, the landscape changes. Alpine meadows and mountain pines form the backdrop for the last section to the Pfeishütte mountain hut. The hut is located in a pristine alpine setting over 1,900 metres above sea level. The rugged peaks of the Rumer Spitz, the Stempeljoch and the Bachofen rise up all around.

The walking time from Hafelekar to the mountain hut is 2-2.5 hours (one way!). The walking time including the return journey to Hafelekar is approx. 4.5-5 hoursAll other route options take considerably longer.
 
Return walk from the Pfeishütte mountain hut
 
Route option 1: Via the Goetheweg trail back to the Hafelekar or a bit further down to the Seegrube. The Nordkettenbahnen lifts to Innsbruck can be accessed from Hafelekar and from the Seegrube.
 
Route option 2: Anyone who would like to return a different way can take the route down from the Pfeishütte mountain hut via Kreuzjöchl. The route goes via Kreuzjöchl, the Vintlalm mountain hut and the Rumer Alm mountain hut and ends in the holiday village of Rum. There are buses from Rum to Innsbruck.
 
Route option 3: From the Pfeishütte mountain hut to the Arzler Alm mountain hut via the Arzler Scharte. The descent from Arzler Alm to Hungerburg takes 30 to 40 minutes. From Hungerburg, it is possible to take public transport or the Hungerburgbahn funicular to the city centre.
 
Route option 4: From the Pfeishütte mountain hut, along scree fields, up to the Stempeljoch and then down from the ridge. Without losing altitude, a trail branches off to the right into a widely spaced larch stand. The trail meets the road by the highest house in the Hall Valley and follows it to the former "Herrenhäuser" manor houses. It is possible to take a shortcut via the former salt mine huts. From the "Herrenhäuser", the trail turns right and continues down to St. Magdalena, an alpine guesthouse and former monastery nestled in the mountains. For anyone who doesn't want to continue on foot: at the weekend during hiking season, a shuttle bus runs from here to Absam every hour (fees apply). From Absam, it is possible to take a public bus to Innsbruck
