The Fernerköpfl is a summit in the Rieserferner group above the Rieserferner hut. It lies between the Schneebiger Nock and the Magerstein. From the hut it is about 1 hour and 20 minutes and 450 meters of altitude on mostly well-marked and well-laid trails. As a day tour from the Reintal from the Sager parking lot over the Gell Valley, very long and exhausting but also very rewarding. Around 20km there and back and around 1700 meters in altitude. The paths are consistently superbly laid out and, apart from one point in a gully with remains of old snow on the actual summit of the Fernerköpfl, are also very well marked. In good weather the view extends over the Northern Dolomites, the main Alpine ridge from the Ötztaler Wildspitze to the Grossglockner. But what is most impressive is the view over large parts of the still large Rieserferner glacier.

Very nice, varied tour in a not so overcrowded part of the Eastern Alps.
The tour begins at the Unterstaller Alm at almost 1700 m (managed, paid parking lot). From the parking lot it goes over wide forest roads through the forest to the Kamelisenalm, a picturesque alpine village with old dark wooden huts. Soon you leave the forest path and continue up a narrow path through the lighter mountain forest until you leave the forest at a prominent ridge (Kamplasegg) and now have a clear view of the limestone and Dobbiaco Pfannhorn. Above the Bergletalm, the now narrow path turns into the Ainettal with wonderful views over the valley and the mountains around the Hochgrabe (2951m). The trail crosses the steeper, grassy and finally rocky flank of the Grumauerberg (surefootedness required) and then leads in flatter terrain along a stream up to the Remasseen. The lakes are really picturesquely situated on a plain surrounded by steep cliffs. It is only about 10 minutes to the highest point of the hike, the Öwelenke at 2560 m. Here a great view of the Rieserferner group around the Hochgall.
Then it goes downhill to the Kamelisenalm and then on the familiar path back to the starting point.

Located 2705 m high above the Winnebachtal and visible from afar, you can reach the Kempspitze in about 3.5 hours from the Winnebachtal car park. The path leads over the Tiefrastenhütte, which can be reached after about 2 hours. The ascent is not easy, especially in the last third. Surefootedness is essential in sometimes steep terrain.
The view of the grandiose mountain world all around to the Dolomites and the glacier peaks of the Zillertal and Rieserferner Group is great.
