Spitzstein

January 2016

Another winter hike on the Bavarian-Austrian border. This time we climbed the rather small Spitzstein at 1.596 m altitude and got some more hands-on experience of the strange weather conditions in the Alps this year.

Way up

As climbing the Spitzstein one way takes only one and a half hour, we started at a very relaxed time from the small town of Sachrang. Weather conditions: perfect. On the way up even warm enough for a T-shirt.

On top

What a view! Just a little too many people for my taste – but who can blame them?

Way down

There are no ski slopes or lifts around – but the Spitzstein is a popular destination for winter hikers and ski mountaineers. So two huts are open all year round to offer some great Knödels :)
