The Putzen-Alpe (also called Putzenalm) is a popular alpine pasture for excursions. Located at an altitude of 1,700 meters in the middle of the Lechtal Alps, you should expect about four hours and about 600 meters of altitude for the round tour to the Alm and back - starting from St. Anton. Thanks to the easily accessible paths, the tour is also perfect for sporty families - if the parents are fit, even with a small child in the nursery.Once you arrive, a very special alpine “flair” awaits you. Because up here there is its own alpine dairy. And you will taste it - if you choose the right snack. If you are not a cheese fan, you will also like the remaining Tyrolean delicacies, such as Gröstl and bacon dumplings.But first things first. Because what is it called so beautifully? "Work before pleasure!"You start your hike at the valley station of the Nassereinbahn in St. Anton and walk first on Nassereinstrasse, then along a forest road - always following the signs for "Putzenalpe". At the first water intake, turn right to get to the Putzenwaldweg. In the forest you hike between mighty trees, surrounded by rich green tones, until the path finally ends again in the forest road.From here you can already see it - the Putzen-Alpe. And so start the final spurt and the last 15 minutes of your hike up to the well-deserved “Brettljause”.After your break, you follow the hiking trail on the Butzenalpbach down into the valley. Via Sankt Jakob am Arlberg you stroll along meadows back to the starting point of your tour.
