Tour description:

A chargeable minibus takes you from the Tourist Information Office or the Blindau car park to the Hindenburghütte.

Once there, the route of the sporty tour leads first on the winter hiking trail to the hill / junction Eggenalm, where green signs from the German Alpine Club describe the way to the Straubinger House.

When you arrive at Straubinger Haus, the path continues over the southern slope of the Eggenalm towards Fellhorn. Beware of the danger of falling due to blankets of snow. At the summit area stay far away from the ridge.

The way back is on the same route to the Straubinger Haus. From here about 500m further on the same ascent path, then follow the green Alpine Club signs keeping right towards Upper Hemmersuppenalm.

Having arrived at the first alpine hut on the left, follow the winter hiking trail past the St. Anna's Chapel to the Hindenburghütte.

Attention: In the Fellhorn area, watch out for alpine dangers (avalanches caused by blankets of snow). Always have appropriate equipment and food with you!
