This pretty walk is approximately 13 kilometres and takes you through meadows and woods around the Brunschkopf, passing several huts along the way. With a bit of luck, you might even get to see the rare natural phenomena of the two aperiodic lakes, the Wildmoossee and the Lottensee. It is also worth making a short detour to the lake, the Möserer See, to enjoy a cool dip in one of Tyrol’s warmest bathing lakes.
Tip: you can join the walking trail in Mösern, Seefeld or Leutasch. The following description is from the small church, the Seekirchl, in Seefeld and goes via Wildmoos. The circular tour is signposted in both directions and can be walked either way round. Those with enough strength, both physical and mental, can take one of several options up to the viewing platform at the Brunschkopf: from Seefeld via the Geiernest, from Leutasch via the Wildmoosalm or from Mösern via the forest path or the Möserer Höhe. There is also a signposted path up to the Brunschkopf from the lake, the Wildmoossee.
Starting at the small church, the Seekirchl, follow the signs for Brunschkopf/Wildmoosalm. Walk next to the stream along the footbridge to the underpass. Turn right up to the WM hall on the Möserer Straße, follow the way to the right and take the first turn left into the Kirchwald residential area. Staying on Am Kirchwald, take the first and second left, then go right, past some houses till you reach the gravel path, route no. 2. Follow the forest path uphill and turn right at the sign "Rundwanderweg um den Brunschkopf" (direction Wildmoosalm).
It is a steady climb up to the popular Wildmoosalm and the sun terrace there is the perfect place for a well-earned drink. Or indeed for something more substantial. The owner is on hand to serve you with a smile and a joke and to point you in the direction of the famous schnaps fountain. Suitably refreshed, continue on path no. 2 to the aperiodic lake, the Wildmoossee (if it is even there, which is not always the case!) then, if you like, make a short detour to the right and enjoy another little rest at the Ferienheim Wildmoos.
Back on the circular path (keep left), you might be lucky enough to see the lake, the Lottensee – another example of an aperiodic lake that comes and goes as it pleases. Should there not be a lake there either, you can still enjoy the locality with a break at the Lottenseehütte for some home-made treats or some coffee and cake.
Leave the asphalt road at the Lottensee carpark (P4) and return to the forest trail and follow the relatively flat path to the turn-off for “Wirtshaus am See/Mösern“. This leads you to the warmest bathing lake in Tyrol and also to the refreshment stop, the Möserer Seestub’n where you can relax by the lake shore while enjoying some seasonal treats. There is also a children’s playground in the forest.
After the turn-off, follow the signs to Seefeld via the “Geiernest“ (keep right) Hörmannsweg and Kirchwald back to the starting point by the little church, the Seefeld Seekirchl.
