A wonderful summit hike to the Sulzspitze. The path offers magnificent views, a magnificent summit panorama and several refreshment stops. The Sulzspitze is not only a popular mountain in summer, but also a favourite for hikers in winter. The Sulzspitze is a beautiful, not too difficult mountain, which can be hiked in almost every season. 

After the comfortable ascent by train to Neunerköpfle, we could already leave some meters of altitude behind us. The path leads us below the Neunerköpfle further south. To the left below is now the Strindenalm. The path is wonderful to walk along. Shortly afterwards there is a place with a sign: "Only for experienced hikers". We pass this place and after a short time we come to a signpost. Here we follow it to the top of the Sulzspitze. After a rest at the summit, we hike further over the Gappenfeldalm back into the valley. Here we follow the path towards Tannheim. Shortly before the bridge (approx. 80 metres after the gravel pit) we follow the forest path to the right. Here we follow the path straight on to the starting point.


The tour is expandable, several peaks in the vicinity. The hiking trail further on to the Landsberger Hütte is also popular.
