This high-altitude trail links the northern Stubai Alps and gives hikers the opportunity to enjoy fresh mountain air the whole way. The trail is named after Peter Anich, who was a geographer and probably the region's most famous son. The high-altitude hike starts in the village of Oberperfuss, where Peter Anich was born, and leads to the picturesque Peter-Anich-Hütte mountain hut in Rietz. The hut is located at an altitude of over 1,900 metres above sea level and gives you a taste of everything the Alps have to offer.
From Oberperfuss, it takes about one hour to reach the first place where you can enjoy a stop for food or stay overnight. The path leads through the Stiglreith car park to the Rosskogelhütte mountain hut at almost 1,800 metres above sea level. From there, the route continues to the Krimpenbachsattel at 1,900 metres and the Inzinger Alm mountain hut, which offers food and accommodation. From the Inzinger Alm, the hike continues past the little "Alpl" hut to the highest point of the tour, the Rauhen Kopf peak at 2,302 metres above sea level.
The route also passes the Flaurlinger Alm mountain hut, which is located at an altitude of 1,600 metres above sea level, and this is another place where you can replenish your energy levels and stay overnight. From there, the route leads past the Oberhofer Galtalm mountain hut to the dilapidated Neuburger Hütte and then on to the Pfaffenhofer Alm at 1,700 metres above sea level. This hut also offers food and accommodation. From there, it is only one hour to the Peter-Anich-Hütte mountain hut, where you can enjoy a bite to eat and spend the night.
