A wonderfully varied route with enchanted forest paths and some outstanding high-altitude viewing points. The spectacular Stuibenfall waterfall is the highlight of this walk.

The first highlight of today's walk is en-route to the Seitental Valley in Niederthai. This spectacular route takes you past Tyrol’s tallest waterfall, the Stuibenfall. You’ll ascend stairs directly next to the gushing water before continuing across lush alpine meadows to the idyllic mountain village of Niederthai.

Conseil(s) de l'auteur

If you want to shorten today's route you can hop on a bus in Habichen which would reduce your walk by 3-5 km. Further information can be found in the route description.

If you wish to avoid the suspension bridge at the Stuibenfall waterfall, you can take an alternative route via the Rattal church

Consignes de sécurité

You will cross a number of fields on which livestock graze(including cows, sheep and horses), always close gates when you’ve entered and exited the field.

Give the animals space when you walk past them and do not attempt to pet or feed them. Keep an eye out for diversion signs (especially around fields which have cows with calves or bulls grazing on them). Do not attempt to cross fields where such diversions are in place. Follow the diversion until you re-join the normal path.

Équipement conseillé

We recommend wearing hiking boots that are well broken-in, plus a rain jacket and waterproof trousers in wet weather, as well as taking sun cream and a hat on nicer days.

In your information pack, you’ll find a detailed list of all the required hiking gear, including some good hiking boots, appropriate clothing, a rain jacket and a backpack

Informations et liens complémentaires

You will pass Gasthof Acherkogel, Tumpen, Waldcafé Stuböbele (cash payment only) and Gasthof Stuibenfall en route if you wish to have a break and treat yourself to lunch or a coffee.

You will pass the Maria Schnee chapel (church), which is a large triple bay chapel in Baroque style and well worth a visit if you have time.
