      After breakfast it was time to say goodbye to the mountains. We followed a piece of the Siebenscheiden path and descended into the stump soil to the green wall house (1.472 m). Through the beautiful high valley we walked along the Stillupspeichersee to the Gasthaus Wasserfall (1,129 m). Back to Hintertux we went by bus to Mayrhofen. From there we drove on to Hintertux.It was a beautiful, but also a challenging hiking week. In 7 days we hiked our "round trip" from Hintertux to the Geraer Hütte at about 82 km and 5,500 hm, from there to the Landshuter-Europa-Hütte. From the Landshuter-Europahütte we hiked on to the Schlegeis reservoir and came across the Berliner Höhenweg. Now we followed this over the Furtschaglhaus, the Berliner Hütte, the Greizer hut and the Kasseler hut. Then we left the Berliner Höhenweg and got off again to get to the Stillupspeichersee.We prefer to do such hut tours with a mountain school together with a mountain guide or mountain guide. The cabins are then booked with half board and you do not have to worry about anything (check in etc. makes the guide). As a rule, you will not be squeezed into a mass mattress camp as a hiking group and you will be provided with smaller rooms. It is much more pleasant to stay in a room with only 5 or 7 mattresses. In a weather change, it is also a reassurance to have a mountain guide with you, who then decides whether or which way you go on. For 4 years we undertake our hut hikes with the mountain school Aktiv am Berg from Oberstdorf. This runs only with small groups (5 - 7 participants). So far, we had with our hiking groups very good luck and always walked with a very pleasant and fun group.Outside the main season, the huts are not fully booked, so you can reserve a night directly with the huts without any problems. However, the organization is too complicated for me.All in all, this was again a great hiking week in the Alps.

      The 6th stage leads over the trail no. 502 once again steep and partly rope insured over a pass, now on the Lapenscharte (2,701 m).
      After taking a break behind the Lapenscharte below the large boulder field, we observed a flock of sheep standing on a snow field (see photo). They were several hundred yards away. These flocks, there were many more, then came to us after a few minutes and pressed us massively. Some sheep tried quite aggressively to bite the backpacks. About screaming and unfortunately with kicks we were able to scare away the herd again. That was not funny! Today, 31.07.19, I read in the online news that last Monday on the route between the Berlin hut and the Mörchenscharte a hiker was attacked by a sheep, as he wanted to pass this, and he was here seriously hurt. Therefore, the walking group had to turn back and he came to a hospital. So far I could not imagine anything like that.
      After the break, we continued first to keep to the right at the junction to the Green Wall House. We followed the hiking trail approximately at the height of the Kasseler Hütte already visible on the other side of the valley, crossed the spectacular Elsenklamm gorge, and hiked the valley end of the Stillupgrund at an altitude of 2200 meters. After we crossed a suspension bridge, we reached the Kasseler hut (2,178 m) after about another 500m. Our last hut in which we stayed.

      The 5th stage was also high and was technically and conditionally extremely demanding. The beginning was certainly one of the most beautiful sections of the entire tour. Over the path no. 502 we first went up to the beautifully situated Schwarzensee (2.472 m) and through the Rosskar over partly very steep snow fields to the northern Mörchenscharte (2872 m). Especially with the snowfields a very high concentration was necessary. From the Mörchenscharte it went downhill over heavily exposed, steep and partly rope insured crates. Then it went downhill over scree, meadows, more rope insurance and an Aluleiter to Floitengrund. After crossing a bridge at the Floitbach (1,834 m), we went back on serpentines up to the Greizer hut (2,227 m). Since the thunderstorm was announced and it started already with the rain, we had to hurry neatly during the ascent. The Greizer Hütte is a wonderfully cozy hut.This stage was, especially at the Mörchenscharte, by far the technical and because of the long and difficult descent the conditionally heaviest stage. For the tour we needed a total of 8 hours.

      On another wonderful sunny morning, the climb began on an easy path into the wide Furtschaglkar. Then the path led through a channel and over a short ridge to Schönbichler Scharte (3,060 m). From the Schönbichler Scharte we climbed the summit of the Schönbichler Horn (3,134 m) on a short cable-secured path. Since we were so lucky with the weather, the summit ruled around 15 ° C instead of the usual 2 -5 ° C in light wind. There we rested and enjoyed the view. Then the trail led us over some difficult, but rope-secured places and further down to the western moraine of the Waxeggkees down to then briefly ascending slightly to the Berlin hut (2,042 m) to arrive. The Berliner Hütter is an impressive house with 4-meter high ceilings, large windows and elaborate carving, extremely impressive. You have to have seen that once.

      A long, but relatively easy, nine-hour hike. On this tour, there are several opportunities for a stop, the Pfitscherjoch house and further down the Schlegeisspeicher several kiosks and restaurants as a change to the previous stages.From the Landshut Europa Hut, we hiked eastwards over the beautifully laid-out Landshuter Höhenweg to Pfitscherjoch (2,246 m). Shortly after the ridge next to the Landshut Europa Hut we had to cross a snowfield again on a relatively flat slope, then the path was clear. After a break in the Pfitscherjoch house, the food and the espresso there I can highly recommend, we went to Zammsgatterl on Schlegeisspeicher (1.782 m) from. Obviously you can park well at Schlegeisspeicher. On the way between the Pfitscherjoch house and the Schlegeisspeicher, we were met by felt masses of walkers, hikers and mountain bikers (who mostly pushed their bicycles). However, this was the only day we met many hikers and day trippers. Otherwise, we were often and for a long time on the stages for ourselves alone and rarely met other hikers. When the weather is fine, around noon the Pfitschjoch hut is definitely packed. Fortunately, we were on the big run at the hut.Arrived at Schlegeisspeicher, strengthened by an ice cream, we stopped to the right and now followed a track, which is however closed to normal traffic, in the direction of the glacier to be seen. At the Schlegeisspeicher we also met the Berliner Höhenweg. This path led us first along the lake and then finally over a mountain path on serpentines steeply uphill to Furtschagelhaus (2,293 m). The ascent after this long hike hosed neatly in the sun. The terrace with a view of the large Möseler (3,480 m), an apple juice spritzer and a cyclist left the effort quickly forgotten. The Furtschaglhaus has, in contrast to the Landshut Europahütte, again a warm shower. Of course this was the highlight at the end of this hike.

      A very exhausting stage. We needed a total of 9.45 hours for this. There was no refreshments and it was very hot in between, because we had descended into the valley.The day began with the descent from the Geraer hut over lush alpine meadows with rare high mountain flowers and from the tree line over steep serpentines through a beautiful Grünerlen and Zirbenwald in the Innervalstal. From the valley station of the material cable car for the Geraer Hütte, we continued on a broad road to Gasthaus Touristenrast (1,345 m). The inn is closed on Mondays, open Tuesdays from 18.00 and from Wednesday to Sunday from 11.00. As we unfortunately got the Monday and the landlord of the Geraer Hütte was of the opinion that this is open we had to start the climb without stopping. At the Gasthaus Touristenrast we stopped to the left, crossed the Alpeiner Bach and began our climb past the Zeischbach to the same name pasture (1,925 m) and up to the marsh Schartl (2,666 m). After we had passed the marshschartl, we went in about 1.5 hours on the Geistbeckweg, a slope path, over stone blocks and snowfields to the Landshuter Europahütte (2,713 m).

      Now after a week without Internet: News from the Alps. This year we undertook a hut tour around the Olperer, from the Zillertal over the Berlin Höhenweg to the Stillupsee. It was a beautiful week in the best weather. The tour is only recommended in nice and dry weather. All on Komoot specified average speeds, also for the upcoming tours, do not vote! For the first stage we needed almost 6 hours. The weather was changeable at the beginning, so we only had short breaks. It was not until shortly before the end of the first stage that it was nice and stayed the same over the week.For this hut tour is absolutely mountain hiking experience, safe walking in the ascent and descent, good physical condition, good condition, sure-footedness and freedom from heights, endurance for daily stages up to 9 hours required. The hike runs along partially exposed climbs and sections with wire rope insured passages.Our 1 stage starts in Hintertux. With the summer mountain railway we drove high to 1,990 m. With a view to the Hintertux Glacier and Olperer (3,476 m) we hiked to the Kaserer Schartl. We then passed the Kleegrubenscharte to the Steinernen Lamm (2,528 m). After a slight downhill we reached our first destination - the beautifully situated Geraer Hütte (2,324 m)
