Crossing, exit: from Niederthai (Umhausen) to the Schweinfurt hut (about 2 h ascent, approx. 1,5 h descent); From Gries in the Sulztal (municipality of Längenfeld) to the Winnebachsee hut (about 2.25 h ascent, about 1.75 h descent)
It is recommended to wear hiking equipment such as breathable and weather-adapted outdoor clothing, ankle-high mountain boots, wind, rain and sun protection, cap and possibly gloves. It is also important to have enough food, as well as a first-aid package, a cell phone and a hiking map.
Schweinfurter Hütte (2.028 m) - Winnebachseehütte (2.361 m)
Take the road into Zwieselbachtal, following the signs to “Winnebachseehütte”. Pass Zwieselbacher Sennhütte and continue through the woodless but verdant Zwieselbachtal. The road ends after 2150 meters. Continue on the footpath which climbs gradually through rubble and boulders fields and crosses several terraces before reaching the lush green meadows in lower Zwieselbachtal where you can see steep scree slopes to your left and right. The trail eventually climbs through a scree slope which can be a bit difficult and tiring. Don’t be irritated by the sight of Zwieselbach Glacier: in the summer there is no ice or snow on the way to Zwieselbachjoch which is located to the right of the glacier. To the west you can see mighty Breiter Grieskogel with its glacier. Once you have crossed the saddle the trail descends quickly during the first mile and then levels out as it reaches Winnebachkar basin. Cross the basin to get to Winnebachseehütte.
Enjoy a both comfortable and relaxing train ride to the train station in Ötztal Bahnhof. You get off the train in ÖTZTAL Bahnhof where you change to a public bus or local taxi. The current bus schedule can be found at: http://fahrplan.vvt.at
