Route by using the mountain cable cars: Seefeld – Rosshütte Funicular – cable car to Seefelder Joch – Summit Seefelder Spitze – Reither Kar – Reither Joch – Härmelekopf
This hike starts at the Rosshütte mountain railway. Take the funicular (situated directly beyond the by-pass road in the east of Seefeld) up to the top station and from there take the cable-car up to the Seefelder Joch at a height of 2,060 m. Follow the grass ridge, wide at the start, in a southerly direction to a narrower ridge over to the Seefelder Spitze summit at an altitude of 2,220 m where Alpine choughs swoop over hikers’ heads. The track now is a challenging one. It leads you along just to the right of the southern ridge, through some slightly craggy areas, down into a gap onto the other side of the ridge and down to the 'Törl' (Little Gateway) at a height of 2,122 m. Keeping to your right, you come to a fork in the path. Follow the path to your left along the foot of the rock face over some rocks to the Reither Joch. Take the track in a north-westerly direction and descend
diagonally over steep slopes down to the Härmelekopf at a height of 2,034 m where you can take the cable-car high over the Hermannstal valley back to the Rosshütte top station. Here you can either walk back down to the valley or you can use the funicular once again to get down to the base station. This hike offers breathtaking views, as well as a vast panoramic view of the mountain region surrounding Seefeld.
