TIP OF THE DAY
Frischmannhütte – Waalweg Fundus – Frischmannhütte

The Waalweg water trail through Fundustal promises unique nature exploration above the tree line due to its exposed location and the unique terrain (some 50% made of primary rocks).

DREITAUSENDERLUFT WITH A MOUNTAIN LAKE
From the hut you climb into Funduskar, following the well-maintained path in steep terrain up to Fundusfeilerrinne trough. The last 150 altitude meters from Feilerscharte to panoramic Fundusfeiler peak (3079 m) are an absolute must!
Head in northern direction through scree areas down to „Schwarzes Loch“ area. At the fork you keep to the right and continue hiking westwards through the gently rolling pasturelands of Leierstal. Later the trail climbs in switchbacks to a mountain dip past which you can already see crystal-clear Wettersee, one of Ötztal’s most pristine mountain lakes. It‘s only a short descent down to the fabulous lake and within a few more minutes you also reach Erlanger Hütte.
