After approx. 1 hour one reaches the peak.The views over the Ziller Valley Alps, towards the Achensee, over the Rofan Range, the Brandenberg and Kitzbühel Alps as well as the panorama over the Inn Valley towards Innsbruck and Bavaria are stupendous!

Descend via a short steep stretch to the Hornalm and back to the Wiedersbergerhorn top station via the panorama path (A40); either to the north or south of the Wiedersbergerhorn – approx. 1 hour in total. The Lauserland at the top station awaits children its fun play areas. Buckle into one of the "Lauser Sauser" Alpine coasters sledges and wizz down the course. Quench hunger and thirst at one of the adjacent mountain huts the Dauerstoaalm or the Berggasthof Hornboden.

Stamina allowing, take the Teichweg path down to the middle station via the reservoir with its small playground and pick nick area. Reckon approx. 2 hours for this entirely downhill route. For all those with tired feet or who are exhausted from romping about in the Lauserland the gondola is ready to take one back down the valley.

A visit to the Lauserland can mean getting wet at the water games, don't forget to bring a change of clothes with you!

Note for dog owners

  • A fee of € 3,00 is charged for the transportation of dogs in the mountain lift gondola
  • Water is scarce along the panorama path; there is only one water trough
  • Take the Teichweg to the middle station. To the delight of the four-legged friends there are more thrist quenching options along this trail!
