The first stage of the Glockner tour in the Hohe Tauern starts at the Mooserboden reservoir. You walk over the 107-meter-high and almost 500-meter-long dam, which holds back incredible amounts of water. Along the shimmering blue lake it goes towards Kapruner Törl. The ascent is partly steep, but it pays off with dreamy high mountain views. At over 2,600 meters, the route takes you over stone and scree fields, surefootedness is absolutely necessary here. From the Törl you can already see down to the Übelkar, into which a well-developed path leads. Past the Lower Rifflkees you hike to Tauernmoossee, another impressive reservoir. It is only a short distance from the southern bank to your today's destination, the Rudolfshütte. The modern mountain hotel is idyllically located on the crystal-clear Weißsee and leaves nothing to be desired.
