A popular destination for hiking and snowshoeing is the family-friendly Amberger Hütte (2,135 m), which is also the starting point for many ski tours. From the south-facing, sunny terrace of the massive natural stone building from 1888 you can see the gleaming Sulztalferner, which is flanked by mighty mountain peaks like the Schrankogel or Wilde Leck. The ascent to the Amberger Hütte runs steadily uphill on a wide road along the Fischbach, which shows you the way until just before the hut. If you want to take a short break in between, you can do so halfway in the Sulztalalm. 

Author’s recommendation

On the way back you can borrow a toboggan from the Sulztalalm and sledding into the valley.

Turn-by-turn directions

Here you keep straight and follow the valley deeper into it. After about 1 hour walk you reach the Sulztalalm and thus has already coped half the way. The further way runs pleasantly uphill to the last piece which has a noticeable slope.
