By train to the railway station in Seefeld, then by regional bus to the ‘Kirche’ bus stop in Mösern. Connection times can be found on the Seefeld ‘Wegfinder‘ app.
There are many beautiful paths leading up to the Brunschkopf and this particular circular tour includes several highlights along the way. The route leads through the woods around Mösern up to the viewing platform and offers a selection of traditional refreshment stops en route and - with a bit of luck – you might also get to see as many as three shimmering mountain lakes.
The starting point at the information office in Mösern is easy to reach with the regional bus (get off at the ‘Kirche’ bus stop in Mösern) and there are several parking possibilities in the resort for anyone arriving by car. You can also leave your car at the Seewald carpark (P1) and start from there.
From the information office in Mösern, make your way onto Broch-Weg (direction Möserer See/Brunschkopf) and follow this uphill until you reach the gravel path with the signposts. Carry on, turning right towards the carpark (P3) for the lake, the Möserer See, and from there head into the woods on the wide gravel path.
Staying on the forest path, you will come to the circular tour, signposted ‘Rundwanderweg um den Brunschkopf’ (route no. 60). At the fork, keep right and follow the signs to Brunschkopf/Wildmoosalm/Seefeld. At the next opportunity, turn left onto the hiking trail (route no. 61, Brunschkopf) and continue along this, looking out for cyclists where the forest road crosses the trail. The Hohe Munde view point and photo opportunity is a good place for a souvenir snapshot and is just a little way before the Brunschkopf viewing platform. The mountain panorama is fabulous and is best appreciated through the top-quality lens of the Swarovski telescope which you will find there.
After enjoying the breath-taking mountain views, take the small steps leading from the platform down to the Wildmoosalm (route no. 62) – be careful going down this steeper section! At the next fork, turn left to the Wildmoosalm (route no. 63) where you can have a seat on the comfortable sun terrace and treat yourself to something tasty – the owner himself is on hand to serve you with a smile and a joke!
Refreshed and happy, continue on route no. 2 (direction Lottenseehütte) where, with a bit of luck, you might get to see the aperiodic lake, the Wildmoossee, a rare, natural gem which appears - and disappears – as if by magic. The Ferienheim Wildmoos is located in a pretty spot, just a short detour to the right, and offers you another chance to enjoy some light refreshments.
The circular trail carries on around to the left and a little later reaches the next aperiodic lake, the Lottensee – another case of ‘hide & seek’ in the woods! Even if there is no lake at the time of your visit, you can make a stop at the Lottenseehütte and enjoy some homemade delicacies in the shade of the mighty spruce trees, or have some coffee and cake to fortify you for the onward journey.
Leave the asphalt road at the Lottensee carpark (P4) and return to the forest path. Follow this relatively flat stretch to the turnoff for Mösern/Möserer See Stub'n where you can make a final short detour to the warmest bathing lake in Tyrol - always worth a visit. As, of course, is the Möserer Seestub'n with its seasonal delicacies, view of the lake and children’s play area in the woods. Finally, head back down to the Mösern information office via Broch-Weg.
Tip: there are various paths down from the platform that allow you to enjoy a circular walk instead of simply returning the same way (look out for the different resorts on the signposts). You will always come across signs for the Rundwanderung um den Brunschkopf which you can use as reference markers to get back to your starting point.
