Winterwanderung Übersaxner Gulm – Winter in Vorarlberg
Vorarlberg planned a hike.
October 14, 2020
When there is still thick fog down in the valley on the Rhine plain, Übersaxen is usually already enjoying the warm winter sun - the perfect place for a winter hike.From the village center you initially walk on Kirchstraße to the outskirts. There you dive into a fairy-tale snow-covered forest area and follow the path to St. Anna Chapel. After a short rest at the small chapel, turn left onto Gulmweg. The path climbs steadily and serves as a driveway for the upper houses.Further up, there is a rolled winter hiking trail that leads you up over the sunny slopes of the Gartisalpe. You can enjoy wide views of the snow-covered landscape at the mouth of the Walgau into the Rhine Valley. Shortly before you reach your destination on the Übersaxner Gulmalpe, your gaze wanders over the glittering slopes of the Laternsertal below the Hohe Freschen. After a breather on the unmanaged Übersaxner Gulmalpe, you hike back to the village on the same path. There you can finally stop at the Gasthaus Krone.
