A destination away from the 3,000-metre peaks. A high plateau with a magnificent view, several high mountain lakes and a lovely alpine pasture promise an eventful hike with destination in Zwieselstein.

From Obergurgl, the trail leads from the Pirchhütter Ach bridge up to the idyllic lake plateau at approx. 2,500 m. Once there, you can already see the mountain pastures. Once there, you can already see the clear Soomsee, which glistens calmly in the sun. Surrounded by green grasses and soft mountain meadows, the lake invites you to linger for a long time.

From the Soomsee, you hike on with an unbelievable mountain panorama at the foot of the 3,000-metre peaks to the next highlight of the stage - Nedersee, to which the Nederkogl lends its name! The rustic Lenzenalm, which you reach on the descent, invites you to a cosy stop-by, with traditional delicacies and Tyrolean cuisine. The stage destination is the village of Zwieselstein, where the two side valleys of Gurglertal and Ventertal meet.

Turn-by-turn directions

From the village center of Obergurgl you hike northwards to the bridge over the Ache brook in the hamlet of Pirchhütt. Crossing Gurgler Ache brook via the bridge, the beautiful hiking trail travels on the western side of the valley-along a somewhat steeper path - to the Alpine lake plateau at approx. 2500 Meterabove sea level. The largest of the lakes is Soomsee, below which you will find the fork-off towards the next stage destination. From there you walk out of the valley on the right side, across the flat Soom plateau to picture-book lake Nedersee located right below Nederkogl peak. Here you can indulge in the unique glacier panorama, encircled by mighty three thousand meter high summits. From the northern shore of the lake you follow the descending route to Lenzen-alm, hiking over rock-strewn terrain and later on a switch-backing footpath through the densely wooded slope until you get to the pasture hut located in the north. From the hut you continue on a narrow footpath that joins awide forest trail. Following the forest path you turn into a hiking trail towards Zwieselstein. Follow the descending trail through sparse forest to Gurgl‘s mainroad and further on to the village center of Zwieselstein.
