Shuttles take hikers from Sport Ossi to the parking in Aschau/Wimm. The hike starts from this point and leads through Alpine pastures via Anderl´s Hütte and Kreuzein Hochleger to Roßwies. Enjoy the stunning view towards Lake Zirein and the rugged Rofan Range.
After a short descent your guide will lead you along the lakes southern shore and then uphill in a westerly direction to the Zireiner Alm. At the next crossing the route leads over a short stretch downhill and then again uphill to the Bayreuther Hütte and the Bergalm.
Following a well deserved rest the tour leads downhill to a cattle grid and down to the defunct Sonnwendjochbergbahn bottom station/starting point.
