Enjoy a wonderful hike from the beautiful village of Schattwald via the Stuibenbach valley to the Bscheißer. 

The lift parking lot at the Wannenjochbahn lift in Schattwald serves as the starting and finishing point. At the eastern end of the car park, past the Kneipp facility, the path leads over a narrow footbridge and then climbs immediately to the right. Once across the creek, the good gravel path, partly through forest, leads up through the Stuibenbach valley. At the valley station of the Stuiben lift, the gravel path heads north and after a short time meets the asphalt path to the Stuiben-Sennalpe. From the Sennalpe there is a hiking trail up to the 'Güntle', the saddle between Ponten (left) and Bscheißer (right). From Güntle to the summit of the Bscheißer it is not far. Directly on the summit, the border between Austria and Germany runs. The descent down to Oberer Stuiben (no hut), further into the Stuibental and back to Schattwald is well signposted and quite entertaining.
