Snowshoe hike to the Labeggalm Brandenberg
Easy snowshoe hike from Wimm (Brandenberg) through picturesque snow covered Alpine pastures, the Eilalm and the Labeggalm.
The tour starts at the Wimm farm near Aschau in Brandenberg and leads through extensive terrain to the Eilalm and Labeggalm Alpine pastures.
The first part of the hike takes you to the Eilalm: from the Wimm farm, walk alongside the fenced-in road in a south-westerly direction (follow the signs for Eilalm-Labeggalm) through a forest to the open Alpine pastures to the north-west of the Pramakopf. Continue past a large farm building and along the road, the trail leads up to the Eil-Alm (1390 m).
Allow yourself a short break, the next destination is the Labeggalm: at the Eilalm, keep left below an intersection and hike diagonally southwards across Alpine pastures up to a saddle. Trek up the broad ridge on the right, a shortcut avoiding one bend in the road, to Anderl's Almhütte. Stay on the broad, almost tree-free ridge and hike further uphill to a large intersection (1595 m) with a bench group on a hill above the Labeggalm pasture area. After a well-deserved break, descend across the wide alpine meadows to the Labeggalm (1545 m).
Descent: from the Labeggalm, follow the road back to Anderl's Almhütte and hike along the ascent route back to the Wimm farm.
- Technically easy – an ideal tour for beginners
- Take a break and admire the beautiful landscape from the bench above the Labeggalm.
With the right choice of track avalanche risks are minimal. Please consult the avalanche bulletin before setting out!
