Forecast

Today will again be very mild for the season. It is uncertain, however, if the weather will remain dry. The foehn winds, which are responsible for these warm temperatures, will weaken during the day and die away completely between midday and the evening, most likely in the early afternoon. As a consequence, dense cloud will develop and produce showers.

Tendency

On Wednesday Thursday, Friday and Saturday neither high pressure nor low pressure will be dominant. The weather will remain bright to cloudy and dry.

Starting at Arzkasten car park, take the steep Alpsteig path to 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.
