This hike into the neighbouring valley basin promises a perfect combination of nature and adventure!

From the car park you cross a bridge and then follow the signs to the Schneetalalm. From there the ascent to the Hahnenkamm begins, possibly a visit to the Alpine flower garden (no longer supervised), where over 500 different plant species await you, and the Alpine barefoot hiking trail! After a short descent to the top station, you take the cable car down to the valley. From the valley station it is a short walk along the road down to the village of Höfen. At the crossing of the main road you will find the bus stop on the right side, opposite the municipal office.

A visit to the Alpine Flower Garden and the Alpine Barefoot Trail, as well as the launch site for paragliders and hang-gliders is very rewarding.

Safety guidelines:
It should be noted that in mountaineering there is an increased risk of accidents and injuries. Despite careful route planning, a basic risk always remains. Tour preparation through endurance sports, appropriate technical training and further education as well as personal prudence reduces the danger of accidents and risks. However, please never forget that the weather in the mountains can change very quickly. Stay on the marked hiking trails.

The personal mountaineering equipment must be safe and serviceable and meet the relevant technical standards. Every hiker is recommended to obtain information about the planned tours from specialist alpine literature or on site.
