The Sulztalalm lies almost at the end of the Sulztal, in the middle of the Stubai Alps.The starting point is at the parking lot at the outskirts of Gries. From there, the path which at the same time the toboggan run is almost even to the Vögelasbrücke. After crossing this the incline increases slightly. After a short while, the path branches off to the right to the Nisslalm. To Sulztalalm, however, continue to follow the ever narrowing valley. After a walking time of 1,5 hour you reach the cozy hut. After a refreshment in the warm parlor, it's time to take the sled back to Gries.Toboggan rental possible at the cottage for a fee.
