Route (circular walk): Leutasch / car park Salzbach – Alpine Hut Wettersteinhütte – Alpine Hut Wangalm – Alpine Hut Rotmoosalm – Alpine Hut Steinernes Hüttl – Alpine Hut Tillfußalm – Path Ganghoferweg - car park Salzbach

The climb to the Wettersteinhütte and the Wangalm begins at the Salzbach car park. The spectacular south-facing trail leads you via the Roßberg to the Rotmoosalm and on to the Steienernes Hüttl. From there the walk takes you downhill to the Tillfußalm from where you can follow the Ganghoferweg path back to the starting point. This is a breathtaking hike at an altitude of around 2,000 metres following the line of the Teufelsgrat ridge above. This hike brings you through some of the best areas for spotting wildlife such as marmots and chamois. It’s not uncommon here to see herds of chamois numbering over 30 animals.
