From the starting point hike along a very steep trail up to the Mittagskogel summit. On this long hike your efforts will be rewarded with spectacular panoramic views of Pitztal and the Kaunergrat and Geigen ridges. The Muttler peak is also along this route and has equally beautiful vistas in store. Return via the same route. There is an alternative return route that will spare your knees: you can reach the top station of the Glacier Express within ca. 1.5 hours and can take the underground train back to your starting point. Please note the train timetables!
