STACK ANNEX 



PKEFACE. 



1 lie object of the Handbook to the Eastern Alps is to 
describe all that is best worth seeing, to assist the traveller 
in planning his tour and disposing of his time to the best ad- 
vantage, to render him as independent as possible of the 
services of interested parties, and thus to enable him the 
more thoroughly to enjoy the magnificent scenery of one of 
the most attractive regions in Europe. 

The Handbook has been compiled almost entirely from 
the personal observation of the Editor, who has repeatedly 
visited the Eastern Alps within the last few years for the 
purpose of obtaining the most recent and trustworthy in- 
formation. As, however, many of the data in the Handbook 
relate to matters which are constantly undergoing alteration, 
the Editor will highly appreciate any corrections or sugges- 
tions with which travellers may favour him. Those already 
received, which in many instances have proved most useful, 
he gratefully acknowledges. 

The present edition of the Handbook corresponds with the 
thirty-fourth German edition. Its contents are divided into 
Five Sections l. Southern Bavaria; II. Salzburg, Salzkam- 
mergut, and Hohe Tauern; III. Northern Tyrol ; IV. Southern 
Tyrol; V. Alps of Upper and Lower Austria, Styria, Carin- 
thia, and Carniola , each of which may be separately removed 
from the book by the mountaineer or pedestrian who desires 
to minimise the bulk of his luggage. To each section is pre- 
fixed a list of the routes it contains, so that each forms an ap- 
proximately complete volume apart from the general table 
of contents. 

The Maps and Plans, on which the utmost care has been 
bestowed, will, it is hoped, render the traveller hardly less 
material service than the letter -press. Eighteen new maps 
and plans, besides three new panoramas, have been added in 
the present edition. 

The Time Tables contained in 'HendscheVs Telegraph' , 
published at Frankfort on the Main, and issued monthly in 
summer, and in the ' Reichs-Kurshucli , published at Berlin, 
and issued eight times a year, will be found satisfactory. The 
best Austrian publication of the kind is the ' Osterreichische 
Kurshuch', which appeargaJ^^Vienna monthly. 



vi PREFACE. 

DistAi<i6!6^ ^^'^ttiilvvay and highroad are given approxi- 
mately in English miles; while those on bridle-paths and 
mountain-routes are expressed by the time in which they are 
usually walked. The number of miles at the beginning of a 
paragraph denotes the distance from the starting-point, while 
the distances from place to place are generally stated within 
brackets; but on railway-routes the mileage is always reckoned 
from the starting-point. — Heights are stated in the text in 
English feet; on the maps they are shown in metres (1 Engl. ft. 
= 0.3048 metre; 1 metre = 3.281 Engl. ft. or about 3 ft. 
373 in.). — The Populations are those ascertained by the 
latest census. 

Hotels. The Editor has endeavoured to enumerate, not 
only the first-class hotels , but others of a less pretending 
kind, which may be safely selected by the 'voyageur en gar- 
den', with little sacrifice of comfort and great saving of 
expenditure. The asterisks indicate those hotels which the 
Editor has reason to believe to be provided with the comforts 
and conveniences expected in an up-to-date establishment, 
and also to be well managed and with a reasonable scale of 
charges. Houses of a more modest character, when good of 
their class, are described as 'good' or 'very fair'. At the same 
time he does not doubt that equally comfortable accommo- 
dation may sometimes be obtained at hotels which he has 
not starred or even mentioned. Hotel-charges, as well as car- 
riage-fares and fees to guides, are stated in the Handbook, 
either in accordance with the personal experience of the 
Editor, or from information furnished by numerous travellers. 
They are of course liable to frequent variation, and generally 
have an upward tendency ; but those mentioned in the follow- 
ing pages will at least aflford the traveller an idea of his 
probable expenditure. 

To hotel-keepers, tradesmen, and others, the Editor begs 
to intimate that a character for fair dealing towards tra- 
vellers is the sole passport to his commendation, and that 
advertisements of every kind are strictly excluded from his 
Handbooks. Hotel-keepers are also warned against persons 
representing themselves as agents for Baedeker's Handbooks.

INTRODUCTION. 



I. Language. Money. 

Language. For travellers purposing to explore the remoter 
parts of the Eastern Alps a slight acquaintance with German is 
very desirable ; but those who do not deviate from the beaten track 
will generally find that English or French is spoken at the princi- 
pal hotels and the usual public resorts. 

Money. The new Austrian monetary unit is the Krone{Crown; 
i K.= 1/2 florin) = 100 Heller (h.)^ though reckonings are still some- 
times made in the old Florins (Gulden) and Kreuzers (1 florin = 
100 kreuzer = '2 crowns). Large sums are paid in government-notes 
(10 and 20 /r.) or banknotes (50, 100, and 1000 K.). The average 
rate of exchange for a sovereign (or a German gold piece of 20 marks) 
is 24 K., and for a Napoleon lOVo ^- Those who travel with large 
*ums should be provided with circular notes, in preference to bank- 
notes or gold, the value of the former being recoverable in case of loss. 

The cost of a tour among the Alps of Bavaria and Tyrol de- 
pends of course on a great variety of circumstances; but, as a rule, 
travelling in S. Germany and among the Austrian mountains is less 
expensive than in most other parts of Europe. The pedestrian of 
moderate requirements, and tolerably proficient in the language, 
may , by avoiding the beaten track as much as possible , succeed 
in limiting his expenditure to 6-8s. per diem ; but the traveller who 
prefers driving to walking, frequents hotels of the highest class, 
and requires the services of guides and commissionnaires, must be 
prepared to expend at least 25-305. daily. 

n. Passports and Custom Houses. 

Passports are not absolutely necessary in Austria or in Ger- 
many ; but they are sometimes called for in order to prove the 
identity of the traveller, they are not unfrequently serviceable in 
procuring admission to collections , and they must be presented at 
the post-office before the traveller can obtain delivery of registered 
letters. Cyclists and motorists are advised to carry passports. 

Passports may be obtained direct from the Passport Department of the 
Foreign Oflice, Whitehall (fee '25.). or through any tourist-agent. — In the 
United States application tVir passports should be made to the Bureau of 
Citizenship, State Department, Washington, D.C. 

Custom House formalities are now almost everywhere leni- 
ent. As a rule , however, articles purchased during the journey, 
which are not destined for personal use , should be declared at the 
frontier. At the Austrian frontier playing-cards , almanacks, and 
sealed letters are liable to confiscation. Tobacco and cigars, the 



xiv III. PLAN OF TOUR. 

sale of which in Austria is a monopoly of government , are liable to 
a duty of about 12 K. per pound. According to the strict rule, one 
ounce of tobacco and 10 cigars only are exempt from duty. The keys 
should be sent along with all luggage forwarded in advance. 

Visitors to S. Tyrol who intend to cross the Italian frontier are warned 
that the possessiun of photoj^raphic apparatus or weapons (even knives with 
spring-blades) exposes them to suspicitin or worse. Sketching or photo- 
graphing in the neighbourhood of Austrian fortifications also is sometinies 
attended by unpleusaut consequences. 

m. Plan of Tour. 
Season. Companions. Scenery. Health Kesorts. 

Srason, The best season for a visit to the mountains of S. Ger- 
many and Austria is from the middle of July to the middle of Sep- 
tember ; for excursions among the higher Alps, the month of Au- 
gust. Glacier expeditions should not be undertaken before the end 
of July. In September the short days are a disadvantage, and by 
the middle of the month many of the Alpine hotels and club-huts 
are closed. The lower Alps and the lakes may be visited as early 
as the end of May, when the waterfalls, moreover, are seen in 
perfection. 

Companions. A party of two travellers can always be accommo- 
dated in a light conveyance , or in the same room at an inn , while 
a third would often be found 'de trop'. The larger the party, the 
greater , as a rule , is the inconvenience , as weU as the certainty 
that many of the true objects of travel will be sacrificed. The single 
traveller , on the other hand, who has attained some proficiency in 
the language of the country , will of course more speedily become 
acquainted with the people and their characteristics, and more 
readily derive instruction from his tour.

Health Resorts for summer and winter. In the choice of a 
summer resort one of the most important considerations is its Height 
above the sea-level, although other factors, such as its position with 
regard to woods and lakes or streams, also demand attention. As 
we ascend the purity of the atmosphere increases, while atmospheric 
pressure (a point of importance to mountaineers) and relative mois- 
ture decrease. The following are the chief summer-resorts arranged 
in order of height above the sea-level.

Winter Resorts. The popularity of the Eastern Alps as a 
winter-resort has rapidly grown within the last ten years or so. The 
bracing and invigorating effects of the winter climate among the 
Alps is principally due to the dryness and purity of the atmosphere, 
analogous at the height of 2500-^300' to that experienced in bright 
summer weather at heights of not less than 6500'. Dust and fog 
are alike unknown, there is comparatively little wind, the weather 
is usually settled, and between November and the middle of January 
there is a curious inversion of the thermometer, for the temperature

rises as we ascend. The sun is frequently so powerful that visitors 
may comfortably sit in the open air for hours at a time in sheltered 
spots. Many health-resorts and hotels that used to close in autnmn 
now enjoy a prosperous winter season. Skating, tobogganing, sleigh- 
ing, ski-ing and other winter sports are actively carried on at many 
of the following resorts.

IV. Walking Tours. Guides. 
Equipmbnt. The greatest drawback to the pleasure of travel- 
ling is a superabundance of baggage. To be provided with an actual 
sufficiency and no more may be regarded as one of the golden 
rules for travellers, A light 'gibeciere' or .'Reisetasche', such as may 
be procured in every town , amply suffices to contain all that is 
necessary for a fortnight's excursion. A change of flannel shirts 
and worsted stockings , a few pocket-handkerchiefs, a pair of slip- 
pers , and a small dressing-case may , after the first few days , be 
carried with hardly a perceptible increase of fatigue. A piece of 
brown gauze or coloured spectacles to protect the eyes from the glare 
of the snow, stout gloves, a leathern drinking-cup, and a pocket- 
knife with a cork-screw should not be forgotten. Useful, though 
less indispensable, are a field-glass or small telescope, sewing 
materials, a supply of strong cord, sticking-plaster, a small compass, 
a pocket-lantern, a thermometer, and an aneroid barometer. Ladies 
also should try to limit their wardrobe as much as possible, and see that 
everything is of a plain and serviceable nature. For the pedestrian 
a light Scottish plaid is better than a waterproof. Special attention 
should be paid to the boots, which must be strong, well-tried, and 
thoroughly comfortable, as the slightest tendency to rub or blister 
may seriously mar the enjoyment of the walk. For glacier - tours 
and mountain-ascents the soles must be supplied with nails, which, 



ix IV. WALKING TOURS. 

however, may be added on reaching the mountainous district. The 
traveller should of course have a more extensive reserve of clothing, 
especially if he purposes visiting towns of importance ; but it should 
be contained in a valise of moderate size, which he can easily wield 
when necessary, and forward from town to town by post. In Austria 
each parcel has to be accompanied by a separate stamped 'Postbe- 
gleit- Adresse', obtained at the post-oftice (i2h.~). In Italy the 
maximum weight of postal packages is 5 kilogrammes (11 lbs.). 

The traveller who intends to ascend any of the loftier peaks 
should be provided with a well-tried Alpenstock , consisting of a 
pole of seasoned ash, 5-6 ft. long , shod with a steel point , and 
strong enough, when placed horizontally, wiih. the ends supported, 
to bear the whole weight of the body. For the more difficult ascents 
an ice Axe and Rope also are necessary. These articles can gen- 
erally be obtained from the guides, but in that case their quality is 
not so trustworthy as when the climber has selected them for 
himself. The best rope, light and at the same time strong, is made 
of silk or Manilla hemp. In crossing a glacier the precaution of 
using the rope should never be neglected. It should be securely 
tied round the waist of each member of the party , leaving a 
length of about 10' between each one and his follower. Ice-axes 
are made in various forms, and are usually furnished with a spike 
at the end of the handle , so that they can in some measure be 
used like an alpenstock. — Shoes with hempen soles are sometimes 
used for mountain-climbing. 

RuiiEs. The enthusiastic traveller should curb his ardour at 
the outset of his excursion , and begin by moderate performances, 
as the overtaxing of his strength on a single occasion will some- 
times incapacitate him altogether for several days. It often requires 
discrimination to determine what degree of fatigue can be borne 
with impunity , and when walking should be abandoned for the 
ease of a carriage ; but all these experiences vrill be acquired 
without the aid of a guide-book. The first golden rule for the ped- 
estrian is to start on his way betimes in the morning. If strength 
permits , and a suitable halting-place is to be met with , a two 
hours' walk may be accomplished before breakfast. At noon a mod- 
erate luncheon is preferable to a regular table-d'hote dinner. Re- 
pose should be taken during the hottest hours , and the journey 
then continued till 5 or 6 p.m., when a substantial meal (evening 
table-d'hote at the principal hotels) may be partaken of. When a 
mountain has to be breasted the prudent pedestrian will pursue 
the 'even tenor of his way' with regular and steady steps f^chi va 
piano va sano ; chi va sano va lontano^) ; the novice alone indulges 
in 'spurts'. If the traveller desires a further maxim for his guidance, 
it may be, 'When fatigue begins enjoyment ceases'. 

To prevent the feet from blistering during a protracted walk- 
ing tour they may be rubbed morning and evening with brandy 



IV. GUIDES. xxi 

and tallow. A warm foot-bath with bran will be found soothing 
after a long day's march. Soaping the inside of the stocking is an- 
other well-known safeguard against abrasion of the skin. 

Excursions among the higher Alps should not be undertaken 
before July , nor at any period after a long continuance of rain or 
snow. Glaciers should, if possible , be traversed before 10 a.m., 
after which hour the rays of the sun soften the crust of ice formed 
over the fissures and crevasses during the night. It is hardly ne- 
cessary to state that experienced guides are absolutely indispensable 
for such excursions. 

The cold glacier-water of the higher regions should not be 
drunk except in small quantities mixed with wine, cognac, or 
Kirschwasser. Cold milk also is prejudicial. Experienced moun- 
taineers recommend cold tea as a safe remedy for thirst. Good old 
wine in small quantities is preferred by others. 

Over all the movemeuts of the pedestrian the Weather holds 
despotic sway. Those who claim acquaintance with the elements 
and their signs will tell him of numberless indications by which 
either foul or favourable weather may be predicted, and their advice 
will often be found valuable. The barometer, too, should be con- 
sulted when an opportunity offers. Mountain-views are generally 
clearest in the morning or towards evening. 

GuTDKS. Within the last few years the guides among the S. 
German and Austrian Alps have greatly improved , chiefly owing 
to the exertions of the German and Austrian Alpine Club, and a 
tariff of fixed charges has been introduced at most of their head- 
quarters. Competent guides can now be obtained in almost every 
part of Tyrol ; and some of the Tyrolese guides rank with the 
best in Switzerland, having occasionally been employed by the most 
eminent British and German mountaineers for extensive tours 
beyond the limits of their native districts. The names of the best- 
known guides are given in the Handbook, and the charges fixed 
by tariff for the principal excursions are mentioned also. Each guide 
is usually bound to carry 15 lbs. weight of luggage. Glacier- expe- 
ditions should never be attempted without a guide, except perhaps 
by a party of adepts. When a glacier is entirely free from snow 
('aper') it may generally be traversed in safety by a party of two 
persons ; otherwise the party should consist of three persons at least, 
all securely roped together. It need hardly be added that the re- 
lations between the traveller and his guide should always be plea- 
sant and cordial. For longer tours it is often advisable to engage a 
guide by time. If the guide is dismissed at a distance from his 
home, he is paid for the time necessary to reach it. 

Club Huts. The numerous Club Huts (^Vnterkunfts-HUtten) 
erected by the German and Austrian Alpine Club and the Austrian 
Tourist Club have done much to increase the pleasures and decrease 
the discomforts of the higher ascents These huts are generally 



xxii V. MOTORING. 

well fitted up, and contain mattresses or hay-beds, woollen cover- 
lets, a small cooking-stove, cooking utensils, plates, and glasses. 
A small sum, fixed by tariff, is charged for the accommodation 
afforded, which members of Alpine clubs generally obtain at about 
half the price paid by ordinary tourists. When the traveller pur- 
poses spending the night in one of these huts and starting thence 
for the ascent, he should take a good supply of portable provisions 
with him (tinned meats, 'Erbswurst', beef-extract, condensed milk, 
tea and coffee, etc.); but many of them are now regular inns in 
summer. The public-spirited Oerman and Austrian Alpine Club, 
by which most of these huts have been erected , now numbers 
upwards of 86,000 members, who belong to 381 different Sections, 
about two-thirds of these being German and the other third Austrian. 
The usual annual subscription is 10 J/, which entitles the sub- 
scriber to 24 numbers of the 'Mitteilungen' and to one volume of 
the 'Zeitschrift', with maps and illustrations. The Austrian Tourist 
Club [founded in 1869 ; 15,000 members) also has done good work in 
building refuge-huts, improving paths, etc. 

The accommodation afforded by the Chalets of the Alpine herds- 
men is generally very inferior to that of the club-huts. "Whatever 
poetry there may be theoretically in a bed of hay, the traveller will 
find that the cold night-air piercing abundant apertures, the jangl- 
ing of the cow-bells, and the grunting of the pigs are little con- 
ducive to refreshing slumber. 

Health. Tincture of arnica is a good remedy for bruises^ and more- 
over has a bracing and invigorating effect if robbed on the limbs after 
much fatigue; but it should never be applied to broken skin, as it is apt 
to produce erysipelas. Saturnine ointment or oxide of zin^ ointment is 
beneficial in cases of inflammation of the skin, an inconvenience frequently 
caused by exposure to the glare of the sun on the snow. Cold cream, and, 
for the lips especially, vaseline or glycerine are also recommended. 

For Dian'hoea 15 drops of a mixture of equal parts of tincture of opium 
and aromatic tincture may be safely taken every two hours until relief is 
afforded . The homoeopathic tincture of camphor (5 drops on a lump of 
sugar every half-hour or so) is also a good remedy. The homoeopathic 
camphor-globules are convenient, but are more apt to lose their strength. 

Distress Signals. Alpine tourists who get into difficulties and find 
themselves in need of aid may avail themselves of the signal code agreed 
upon for that contingency by the German, Austrian, and other Alpine Clubs. 
This consists in giving six signals at regular intervals within the space 
of a minute, then pausing for a minute, and then repeating the regular 
signals. The answer is given by making three signals at regular intervals 
within the space of a minute. The signals may be made by waving a flag 
or a handkerchief on the end of an alpenstock, or by shouting, or by whist- 
ling, or by flash-lights from a mirror, or with a lantern, etc. 

V. Hotoring and Cycling Notes. 
MoTOB Cabs entering Austria or Germany are subject to customs- 
duty, the amount being returnable if the car quit the country within 
a given period. But members of the chief automobile clubs are 
spared the necessity of making this deposit on conditions explained 
in the usual handbooks. In Austria drivers require a certificate from 



V. CYCLING. xxiii 

the authorities; tho car mnst display a small number-plate in front 
and a large number-plate behind; and the speed-limit is 27 M. 
(45 Kil.) per hr. or in populous places 9 M. (15 Kil.). In Germany 
the car-owner must take out an official permission (Erlaubnis-Karte ; 
np to 30 days 40 JIf) and the driver's certificate m»ist be counter- 
signed by a German consul. In populous districts and after dark 
the speed-limit is 9 M. per hr. ; otherwise there is no limit, but 
driving to the public, danger, whatever the speed, is an offence. 
Lamps, brakes, and horns are imperative, but foreigners are not 
required to carry number-plates. For local regulations (which vary) 
in both countries, motorists should apply to the police.

Cycles accompanied by their owners entering Austria pay a 
customs-duty of 60 A'., which is returned when the country is 
quitted ; but members of the more important cycling unions can 
usually avoid the necessity for this deposit. Cycles are admitted to 
Germany without customs formalities, but a charge of 8-10 J/ is 
made on crated machines if they look new. In both countries each 
machine must be 'provided with a brake, bill, and lamp; the last 
must be lighted after dark even when the machine is stationary or 
being pushed. Through -tourists are not usually bound to carry 
number-plates. Where special cyclist-paths are provided ('Rad- 
fahrwege'; usually in the environs of larger towns) the cyclist must 
use these. Police regulations vary as to the use of narrow and steep 
streets in towns and villages, or of the side-walks on country- 
roads, etc

Austria, Carinthia, and the Austrian Littoral vehicles keepjto the 
right in meeting, and pass on the left in overtaking. In Salzburg, 
Lower Austria, Styria. and Carniola the reverse is the rule, as in 
England. Led horses should be met and passed on the side on which 
the man in charge is. 

Maps. Information as to these can be obtained at the headquarters 
of the chief motoring and cycling clubs in England or America. Among 
the best German maps are the following: Strassenkarte von Bayern, published 
by the German Touring-Klub, in 4 sheets i,i 2 Jl each (1 : 250,000); Profile 
der Eavptstra-^sen in den oetterreichischen Alpenldndern. by Jaj^er and Seeger, 
in 16 sheets at 55 h. each (togefher 7 Ji); Lechner's Tourenkarten in 10 sheets 
at 1 Jl TS pf- each; Mitlelbach's Strassenprofilkavte von Detitschland und Oester-

xxiv VI. CXINVEYANCES. 

VI. Conveyances. 

Kailwav Travblling in Germany is less expensive than in most 
other parts' of Europe, and the carriages are generally clean and 
comfortably fitted up; hut in Austria the fares are somewhat higher 
and the carriages inferior. The second-class carriages , provided 
with spring-seats , are often better than those of the first class in 
England. Smoking is allowed in all the carriages, except those 'Fiir 
Nichtraucher' and the coupes for ladies. The speed seldom exceeds 
25 M. per hour, and as the railways are generally well organised and 
under the supervision of government, accidents are happily rare. No 
one is admitted to the platform without either a railway-ticket or a 
ipXitform - ticket (Bahnsteiykarte). Hand -luggage is free, but the 
heavier luggage must be booked and a ticket procured for it ; and 
this being done, the traveller need be under no apprehension, as it 
will be kept in safe custody at its destination until he presents his 
ticket, When a frontier has to be crossed the traveller is strongly 
recommended to keep his luggage with him, and to superintend the 
custom-house examination in person. — English money is occasion- 
ally refused at the Austrian ticket-offices, and the traveller should 
therefore always be provided with a sufficient store of Austrian or 
German money. 

Diligences, caAledi ^Eilwagen'' or 'Mallepostes in Austria, gener- 
ally carry three passengers only, two in the inside and one in the 
coupe. The latter alone affords a tolerable survey of the scenery, 
and should if possible be secured. In much-frequented districts it is 
frequently engaged several days beforehand. The guards, who are 
often retired non-commissioned officers, are generally well-informed 
and obliging. The usual quantity of luggage allowed to each pass- 
enger does not exceed 20 lbs., overweight being charged for by 
tariff. Passengers are sometimes required to book their luggage two 
hours before the time of starting, or even on the previous evening. 
— The old 'St€llwag€n\ formerly the chief means of transit in Tyrol, 
has now been superseded by the more comfortable Omnibus. On 
nearly all the chief routes Post Omnibuses or Mail Coaches now run, 
with relays of horses at the different stages. The best places are the 
cabriolet and the coup^j and travellers should secure their seats in 
good time. — Motor Omnibuses also ply on several routes. 

Extra-Post. The usual tariff in Austria for a carriage-and-pair 
for four persons with moderate luggage is about iO K. per stage of 
15 kilometres (93/8 Engl. M.). For a party of four persons posting 
is cheaper than travelling by diligence, and of course pleasanter. — 
In engaging Peivate Cakeiages the stipulation should always be 
made that the fare includes all tolls. 



Vn. MAPS. XXV 

Vn. Haps. 

The maps contained in the Handbook will meet the requirements 
of all ordinary travellers , but the mountaineer and the pedestrian 
may occasionally desire to consult others on a larger scale. The best 
of these are enumerated below. 

Bavaria. Topographischer Atlas von Bayern (1 : 50,000; i^j^'^ 
per sheet, copper-plate 3 J(, monn tain-sheets in colours l^'o Jf). — 
Topographische Karte von Bayern (1 : 25,000; 1 Jf per sheet). All 
the sheets of the Alpine districts have been issued. — Karte des 
Deutschen Reiches (1 : 100,000), 50 pf. per sheet, in colours 75 pf., 
copper-plate i^/o Jl- Southern Bavaria occupies 18 sheets (the 
frontier-sheets contain also the adjoining Austrian districts). 

AusTBiA. The Spezialkarte der osterreichisch - ungarischen Mon- 
archies published by the Imperial Military-Geographical Institute 
of Vienna (1:75,000; 1 ujf per sheet, on cloth 1 .^80pf.), embraces 
not only the Austrian Alps but also the adjoining parts of Bavaria 
and Italy. A number of sheets have been published with the Marked 
Paths in colours (1 .^ 40 or 2jf 20 pf.). The Imperial MUitary 
Geographical Institute has begun also to issue a series of Topo- 
graphical Detail Maps (1 : 50,000), with the marked paths in colours 
(each sheet 3 A". 40 A.). — Freytag's Tour isten - Wand erkarten 
(1 : 100,000), showing the marked paths in colours (13 sheets at 
2 K. each, on cloth 2 K. 80 h.). 

Italy. The Carta topografica del Regno d' Italia (1 : 75,000; 1 fr. 
per sheet) is published by the Keale Instituto Geograflco Militare. 

Other first-class special maps are the following, published by 
the German and Austrian Alpine Club (scale 1 : 50,000) : Zillertaler 
Alpen (2 sheets, 2^ each), Venediger-Gruppe (2 Jif), Kaisergebirge 
(1 Ulf), Berchtesgadener Land{pJf}, Karwendelgruppe(2Jf), Gross- 
glocknergruppe (2 tV/), Ortlergruppe (2 Jf)^ Sonnblick und Vmge- 
bung (1 ty^), Oetztaler Alpen (4 sheets, 2 Ji each), Schlern and Rosen- 
garten(2Jf)f Ferwallgruppe (2,/4f), Adamello and Presanella Oruppe 
(2 Jif)y Rieserftrner-Gruppe (1 ^^, and Ankogel- Hochalmspitz- 
Gruppe (2,.^). On the scale 1 : 25,000: Schlern and Rosengarten- 
Gruppe (2 ^ff), Langkofel and Sella-Gruppe (2 Jf), Marmolata- 
Oruppe (2 Jf), Allgduer and Lechtaler Alpen (2 sheets, 2 Jf each), 
and Brenta-Gruppe (3 J/). Also (scale 1 : 100,000) Dolomiten-Karte 
(E. and W. sheets 2 Jf each). The prices given are those for 
members of Alpine Clubs; the booksellers charge double. 

Vin. Hotels. 

Little variation occurs in the accommodation and charges of 
flrst-class hotels in the principal towns and watering-places through- 
out Germany and Austria ; but it frequently happens that in old- 
fashioned hotels of unassuming exterior the traveller finds as much 
real comfort as in the modern establishments , while the charges 



xivi Vra. HOTELS. 

are much lower. The best houses of both descriptions are therefore 
enumerated in the Handbook. 

Where the traveller remains for a week or more at an hotel , it 
is advisable to pay, or at least call for his account every two or 
three days, in order to obviate the risk of erroneous insertions. 
Verbal reckonings are objectionable. A waiter's mental arithmetic 
is apt to be faulty , and his mistakes are seldom in favour of the 
traveller. A habit too often prevails of presenting the bill at the 
last moment, when no time is left for the detection of errors or wil- 
ful impositions. Those who purpose starting early in the morning 
will do well to ask for their bills on the previous evening. 

A peculiarity of many of the Austrian inns is that they have a 
Oastzimmer' for the humbler classes on the groundfloor , while the 
Salle h Manger for more distinguished visitors is on the first floor. 
The viands and liquors supplied in these apartments are gener-' 
ally the same , while the charges difler considerably. Pedestrians 
and travellers of moderate requirements will find the country inns 
in S. Germany and the German parts of Tyrol very reasonable, 
5-6s. a day being generally sufficient to include every item. In 
the Italian districts, however, the charges are higher by about one- 
half, and larger gratuities are expected by the attendants. Trav- 
ellers about to explore very remote districts are recommended to 
take a supply of tea, coffee, or chocolate with them. Where there 
are no inns, accommodation may generally be obtained at the cur^s 
on reasonable terms. 

The Post Inns are generally good. Those patronised by the 
'Stellwagen' are very inferior, although convenient for persons tra- 
velling by these vehicles, especially when encumbered with luggage. 

Some of the Austrian dishes have curious names; e.g. 'Garniertes 
Kindfleisch' or 'Feines Kindfleish\ boiled beef with various vegetables, 
usually very good; 'Gulyas', Hungarian baked meat, peppered; 'Paprika- 
huhn", fowl prepared in a similar way; 'Jungfernbraten'', roast pork with 
juniper-berries; 'Matrosen-Braten'', 'Gedampfter Spitz', 'Ofener Braten', 
'Husaren-Braten', varieties of stewed beef ; 'Ungarisches Rebhuhn', pickled 
veal; 'Fisolen', beans; 'Heurige Erdapfel', new potatoes; 'Carfiol', cauli- 
flower; 'Kren\ horse-radish; 'Aspic\ jelly; 'Risibisi', rice and peas; 
'Beuscher, calves' lungs in vinegar; 'Junges Wild', ragout or entrails of 
game, etc. ; 'Kaiserfleisch', smoked sucking-pig; 'Krenfleisch', stewed pork 
with horse-radish; 'Frankfurter', small boiled sausages. — Cold dishes 
and whets are grouped under the heading *Hors d'oeuvres' or 'Assietten'. — 
Among favourite sweet dishes are: 'Strudel mit Roster', thin pastry with 
steamed plums; 'Schmarrn' a kind of pastry; 'Bohmische Dalken', pastry 
with stewed plums (p6wedel); 'Topfenhaluska', dumplings with curds; 
'Koch', souflFl^. 

Table-wine is served in open bottles (V4 litre) or in glasses, and is 
usually drunk mixed with soda-water (syphon) or other mineral water. 
'Ein achtel gespritzt' means Vs litre of wine with Vs litre of soda-water; 
'doppelV or 'voll gespritzt' means with twice the quantity of soda-water. 

English travellers often impose considerable trouble by ordering 
things almost unknown in German usage , and are apt to become 
involved in disputes owing to their ignorance of the language. They

hould therefore endeavour to learn enough of the language to render 
them intelligible to the servants, and as far as possible to conform 
to the habits of the country. 

IX. Post and Telegraph Offices. 

Postal Rates. Austria, Hungary, and Bosnia each have postage- 
stamps of their own. Ordinary Letters within Austria - Hungary, 
Bosnia, and Germany, 10 h. per 20 grammes (2/3 oz.); for foreign 
countries. 25 h. per 15 grammes (l/o oz.). Registered Letters 25 h. 
more. — Post Cards 5 /»., for abroad lO h. ; reply post-cards 10 and 

20 h. — Letter Cards 6 h. (for correspondence within any one town), 
10 h., and 20 h. — Stamps may be purchased at most tobacco-shops. 
Foreigners should be careful not to put Austrian stamps on letters 
mailed in Hungary, or vice versa. 

Telbgkams. The charge for a telegram within Austria-Hungary, 
Bosnia, and Germany is 6 h. per word (minimum 60 /i.). For each 
foreign telegram a charge of 60 h. is made plus the following rates 
per word: Great Britain and Ireland 26^.; Belgium or Denmark 

21 /j. ; France 16 h. ; Italy 8-16 ft.; Switzerland 9/i.; Netherlands 
l9/». ; Norway 32 /».; Russia or Sweden 24 h. ■ Turkey 28 h.; Canada

Ludwiy-Strasse. MUNICH. I. Route 1. 9 

♦Bavarian National Museum (PI. G, 5, U; adm. see p. 6), 
built in the German Renaissance style by Gabriel Seidl in 1894- 
1900, with extensive collections illustrating the development of 
art and civilization. 

The chrunologically arranged coUectiona occupying the 48 rooms of 
the Ground Floor illustrate the hist( rj' of civilization in Germany from 
the earliest times t'> the present day, vrith special reference to Bavaria. 
On the First Floor (34 rooms) are the special collections (Fachsammlungen) 
and the library. A large room on the Second Floor contains a colleciion 
of 'Creches', or representations of the Nativity. The Courts to the right 
contain Roman, early-Christian, and medireval sculptures and architectural 
fragments, those to the left Renaissance and rococo works. The most 
cursory inspection of the Museum takes 3 hrs. ; those who are pressed for 
time should confine their attention to the grouDdtloor. 

The beautiful Hubertus-Brunnen, designed by Hildebrand (1907), 
rises on a terrace to the right of the Museum. The adjacent Prussian 
Embassy (PI. G, 5 : //), erected by Littmann in 1908, accommodates 
the *Scliack Gallery (adm., see p. 6), the property of Emp. William II., 
with choice works by Feuerbach, Rocklin, Schwind, and other German 
masters of the middle of the 19th cent., forming a valuable comple- 
ment to the New Pinakothek. 

At the end of the Pxinz-Regenten-Strasse the Isar is spanned 
by the Luitprjld-Brucke, with four colossal figures. On the right 
bank flights of steps ascend to the Peace Monument (PI, H, 4), a 
column with the Genius of Peace, erected in 1898 to commemorate 
the peace of 1871. 

At the S. end of the handsome Ludwig-Strassk (PI. F, 4. 5; 7),

through the romantic ravine of the Kienbach to (3 31.) Andechs (2335'), 
once the seat of the powerful counts of that name, and now a Benedictine 
monastery, with a favourite pilgrimage-church. The space in front of 
the church commands a survey of the mountains (finer from the terrace 
of the monastery, to which visitors are admitted by permission of the 
prior). Good beer at the Brdustiibl, adjoining the church. A little lower 
down are the Andechser Ho/, an inn with a shady garden, and the village 
of Erling (Post).

the middle ages an important commercial place, lies on an island in 
the Lake of Constance, 350 yds. from the mainland, with which 
it is connected by the railway-embankment and a wooden bridge. 
Pop. 6700. At the harbour is a bronze Statue of King Maximilian II. 
(d. 1864), erected in 1856. At the end of the S. pier is a large lion 
in marble; on that opposite rises a Lighthouse. Adjoining the S. pier 
is the Alte Schanz, with a mountain-indicator for the view of the 
Alps from the Pfander to the Kaien. In the adjacent Reichs-Platz 
rises the tasteful Reichsbrunnen, by Thiersch and Riimann (1884). 
The handsome Rathau^, built in 1422-36 and restored in 1885-87, 
has a painted fa(;ade and rear, and contains a Museum of Antiqui- 
ties (adm. 9-12 and 3-5; 30 pf.). Beside the "Landtor are pleasure-

Oherstdorf {l^ib'X a market- village (2500 inhab.) and favour- 
ite summer and winter resort, is beautifully situated in a broad 
valley in the midst of the Allgau Alps. In front of the handsome 
church is a war-monument for 1870-71, consisting of a lion couchant 
in bronze. The church and the chapel of St. Nicholas (to the W. 
of the rail, station) contain altar-pieces by Johann Schraudolph 
(1808-79), a native of Oberstdorf. — About IV2 M. below the vil- 
lage the Trettach^ Stillach, and Breitach unite to form the JUer. The 
ramifications of the valleys from which they descend afford a great 
variety of excursions. 

Walks. On the banks of the Trettach, at the upper end of the village, 
are the shady promenades of the 'Verschonerungs- Verein'. Before the 
Miihl-B)'iicke (10 min. to the E. of the church) we ascend to the ri»ht, 
turn to the left at the juide-post. and proceed through wood to (5 min.) 
the Stem, a space provided with benches. Hence we may descend to the 
left to the Stoltingtriihe and (10 min.) the Trettaehsieg (path to Spiel- 
mannsau, see p. 27); or ascend a little and turn either to the riszht to 
the Hoffmannsruhe (see below), or to the left to the (V4 hr.) Rauenbad 
(2840'; pleasant peaty water). We may return via the Alpeniose Inn (see 
below) and St. Loretto to (1/2 hr.) Oberstdorf. — On the right bank of 
the Trettach, below the Miihl-Bnicke, we may follow the Vormittags-Weg 
to the (11/2 M.) Dvmelsmoos Bridge, returning by the promenades ( Untei'e 
and Obere Insel-Anlagen) on the left bank. 

Faltenbach Waterfall, in the gorge between the Rubihorn and Schatten- 
berg (25 min.). Beyond the Miihl-Brucke (see above) we pass a limekiln 
on the left, cross the brook at the end of the ravine, and a.9cend the right 
bank to a platform above the foaming cascade (through the ravine to the 
Vordere Seealp and to the Nebelhorn, see p. 29). 

Kiihberg (2955'), V2 br. From the Muhl-Brucke we follow the Oytal 
road (p. 28), ascending in a wide bend at the foot of the Schattenberg, 
or we may take the shorter foot-path (20 min.) straight on, to the Inn, 
commanding a charming view of Oberstdorf and of the Spielmannsau with 
the Trettachspitze. 

Hoffmannsruhe (2970*; 1/2 hr.). Pilgrimage-road from the church to 
(»/* M.) the three chapels of St. Loretto, shaded by fine old lime-trees (altar- 
pieces by CI. Schraudolph in the third chapel); then to the left up the

(to the Uauenbad, 'A M., see p. 25). The descent may be made throu{;h 
the Trettach Aiila-en to the (20min.) Miihl-Briicke (p. 25). 

Jauchenkapf (2980': 1/2 hr.). We cross the Stillach by the Walser 
Briicke (see below), diverge to the right beyond the second bend of the road, 
:in<l proceed via Jauchen (2815') to the top of the hill, which affords an 
excellent view. We may return via (i/« hr.) Rente fp. 27). 

'Wasach, a beautiful walk (I hr.). We follow the highroad to theN., 
cross the -Stillach and the (25 min.) Breitaeh, and ascend the road to the left, 
soon gaining a fine view of the Walser Tal, to the Wasach Inn (3020'; rooms), 
commanding a beautiful view (best by evening-light), which is still more 
extensive from the (10 min.) "Kapf, 250' higher: from left to right, the 
Rubihoru, Schattenberg, Hofats, Rauheck, Kreuzeck, Krottenkopf, Kratzer, 
Himmelschrofen, Trettachspitze , Madelegabel, Hochfrottspitze, Bockkar- 
kopf, Wilder Mann, Linkerskopf, Rappenkopfe, Schlappolt. Widderstein,

the Kapf (turning to the left beyond the house) a steep path leads through 
wood to the (10 min.) Judenkirche (3480'), a natural archway in the rock, 
through which we obtain a view of the Krottenkopf and Kreuzeck. From 
Waeach to Oberstdorf, returning by Tiefenbach and Reute^ IV4 br. — Frbm 
J&gersberg (alio'; ScholFs Inn, plain but good), to the N.E. of Wasach 
(1 hr. from Oberstdorf, diverging to the right beyond the Stillach), the view 
is also very fine, ;ind more comprehensive towards the N. 

Bad Tiefenbach (3V4 M). The road diverges to the left beyond the 
Breitaeh bridge (see above; diligence from Oberstdorf twice daily in ^U hr.). 
Pede=;triuns (1 hr.) follow the road to the Waher-Tal to (IV2 M.) Rente 
(see below) and by a path diverging to the right descend through meadows 
and wood to the Breitach-Tal. Crossing the Breitaeh (to the left, road to 
the Breitaeh -Klamm, 20 min.; see p. 27), we follow the road to the 
right through wood to the sulphur-baths of (1/2 hr.) Bad Tiefenbach (2790'; 
*Inn, 26 beds, pens. 4-5 Jt), situated in the narrow valley of the Loeh- 
bach. At the (2 uiin.) Alpenrose Inn the road divides, the branch to the 
right ascending past the church (2910') to 0/4 hr.) Wasach (see above); that 
to the left to Rohrmoos (p. 32) ; while tbe path straight on leads past the 
precipitous Nase to the (V2 br.) Hirschsprung (2905'), a cutting in the rock 
which affords a view of the lower Iller-Tal and the Griinten. We may 
now descend to the right to {^h hr.) Langenwang (p. 24), or follow the 
roid straight on via Riedle and Ober- Maiselstein (2820'; Hir«ch) to (IV2 hr.) 
Fixchen (p. 24). Beyond the Hirschsprung a path to the left leads past the 
Slurmanns- Hohle (see below) to (I3/4 hr.) Fischen. 

From Tiefenbach the Geisberg (4535'; fine view; rfmts, in the neigh- 
bouring chalet) may be ascended in 2 hrs. by a path through wood. Alter- 
native descent via the Raut Alp to Rohrmoos" (p. 32). — The Besler (5510'), 
ascended from Tiefenbach via the Lochbach-Tal or from Ober-Maiselstein 
by the shady Konigsweg via Haubeneck in 3 brs., also affords a beautiful 
view. — The ascent of the Riedberghorn {5S65') from Ober-Maiselstein 
(3 hrs.-, marked path through the Bolgenach-Tal) is easy and interesting; 
descent via the RoJgen^ 21/2 hrs. 

Sturmanna-Hohle, 3'/2-4 hrs. From the (I1/2 hr) Hirschsprung (see

Stnrmannshaus, where tickets (t-4 pers. 3 Ulf, each addit. pers. 60 pf.) are ob- 
tained for the cave (lighted by electricity ; temperature 41-43° Fahr. ; closed 
8-10 a.m. on Sun.), the entrance to which lies 10 min. higher up. The 
visit occupif-s 3/4 br. We first follow a rocky cleft (460' in length) formed 
by erosion in the limestone rocks, then descend by 140 steps into the 
'HoUenrachen', a sort ai pit 205' in depth, and, after passing some small 
rapids, reach the cave-lake. — We may return from the Sturmannshaus 
via Ober-Maiselstein (p. 24) to (iVs hr.) Fischen (p. 24), or via the Hirsch- 
sprung to (50 min.) Langenwang (p. 24)

'■Zur Walserfchanz" ('■Sc'hdmle\ 32513'), formerly the Austrian custom-house; 
hence un to Riezlern and Mittelberg. see p. 32. — We now retrace our 
steps for 8 min. and descend through meadows and wood to the right 
to the -Zwingsteg (8U55'), an iron bridge nearly 200* above the Breitach. 
We may either take the path descending before the bridge to the left and 
return through the Breitach - Klamm (see below); or beyond the bridge 
ascend in zigzags to (10 min.) a direction-po.st, and then descend to the

Mountain Ascents (guides, see p. 25). — "Nebelhorn (7295'), an easy 
ascent of 4-4i/2 hrs. (guide , unnecessary, 5 Jl). We either follow the 
shady path through the gorge from the Faltenbach Fall (p. 25)-, or ascend 
to the left in zigzags from the bridge below the fall , across meadows 
and through wood, to (IVz hr.) the Vordere Seealp (4'240'). In 20 min. 
more we reach the end of the valley (4i85') and ascend a winding bridle- 
path for 3/4 hr., then turn to the right to the (2/4 hr.) Nebelhorn-Haus 
(6330': *Inn, bed 3, mattress i Jt 00 pf.), commanding a fine view. Thence

perpendicularly towards the Ketter.<ch\vang-Tal (p. ^). Magniticent view. 
— The descent from the Nehelhorn-Haus to the Oytal (p. 28) past the 
Seealp-See (5345') is steep and rather laborious but interesting (to Kappeler s 
Inn, 2 hrs. ; the track descending to the lake from tbe Hintere Seealp 
should be avoided, as it there comes to an abrupt end). — The descent 
from the Nebelhorn-Haus by the Geisfuss to the (2 hrs.) Oeisalp Lakes 
(p. 28) is fatiguing tguide advisable). — An interesting pass leads from the 
Nebelhorn-Haus across tbe Zeiger-SaUel (6505") and the Wengen Alp to 
(5 hrs.) Hinterstein (p. 33 ; guide from Oberstdorf 10 Jt). Path to the Prinz-

3 hrs. from the Nebelhorn-Haus via the Koblat (guide' 10 U(f, with de- 
scent to Hindelang 12, to Hinterstein 13 Jl). 

S5llereck (55y5'), 3^/2 hrs., easy and interesting (guide 6 Jf, not in- 
dispensable). From the (1/4 hr.) Schlechten-Briicke (p. 26) we ascend to the 
left past the Waldesruhe Hotel to (1 hr.) Schlatt. and thence along the ridge, 
finally keeping to the left at the Hdlliiete, to the (2-21/2 hrs.) summit (ad- 
mirable view). An interesting e.xcursion over the arete may be taken hence 
by experts, passing the (1 hr.) Sc7ila[>poU (6445*) on the S., to the (.V2 hr-) 
top of the Fellhorn. — Fellhorn (6685'), interesting and not difficult, 5 hrs. 
(guide, nut indispensable, 6 J(). We follow the Birgsau road (p. 28) as 
far as the (II/2 hr.) bridge of Feittenoy, then take the path diverging to 
the right across the Stillach, ascend the Warmatsgund-Tal, to the S.W., to 
the Warmattgund Alp and (I1/2 hr.) the last hut Am Wank (4525'), and follow 
the pathHo the right to the arete and thence to the N. to the (2 hrs.) top. 
Easy descent to Riezlern in the Walser Tal (p. 32; 21/2 hrs.). — Rauheck 
(782!0'), repaying, in 4 hrs. from Gerstruben (p. 28; guide 8 Uif, not in-

(IV4 hr.) Aelpele (.see p. 28) to the (3/4 hr.) Rauheck. Thence to the S. 
across the Sattel (7415') to the (3/4 hr.) Kreuzeck (7790'). Descent to the 
S.W. to the (2 hrs.) Kemptner Hiitie (p. 30), or to the S.E. via the March- 
Scharte to the Hermann-von Barth-Hutte (p. 280). Tlie descent on theX.W., 
via the Bettler-Riicken to the Dieters'jach-Tal or the Tranftal^ is dangerous 
and unadvisable. — Hdfats (W. summit, 7405'), ;Ji/2-4 hrs. from Ger- 
struben (guide 15 M; one for each traveller required), difficult and not 
free from danger owing to the extremely steep grass-slopes (60-70°), to be 
attempted only by those quite free from dizziness (climbing-irons neces- 
sary). The Hofattreanne, on the 8.W. side, is botanically interesting. — 
'Hochvogel (861u'), ascended in 71/2-8 hrs. via the Oytal and the Himmel- 
eck., not difficult, but fatiguing, see pp. 23, 34 (guide 14 J(, with descent via 
Hinterstein 18 Jl). Another attractive ascent from the Nebelhorn-Haus 
(guide not indispensable for experts) passes the Groste and Kleine Seekopf, 
the Schochen, and the Lachenkopf, and leads via the Laufbachereck (7145') 
to the Schonherg-Hutte in the Bargiindele (p. 33) and to the (41/2 hrs.) Prinz- 
Luitpold-Haus{^.^). — Grosse Krottenkopf (872)'), the highest summit

the Hermanntkar to the (2V2 hrs.) Hermann -von- Barth-HUtte (p. 280). — 
Muttlerkopf (7i65'), ascended from the Kemptaer Hiitte by a marked path 
via the Ober-M;idele-Joch ia 13/4 hr., easy (guide not indispensable). — 
Oefnerspitze (S460'), ascended from the Kemptner Hiitte via the Ober- 
Madele-Joch in 2'/2 hrs. (guide 13 Jl^ incl. the Krottenspitze 15 Uf), rather 
ditlicult. Along the ridge to the ¥.. and h.\g\3i^s\. KroiUnxpiUe (83i5'), */< hr. 
Madelegabel (86S0'), 8 hrs., not difficult for practi.sed mountaineers 
(guide 10 Jl). From (2V2 hrs.) Einodsbach (p. 29) the path ascends the 
Bacher-Tal (wire-ropes at several points) to the (2V-2-3 hrs.) Waltenberger- 
Eam (6840'j, a club-hut (12 beds <fe 23 mattresses) with provision-depot, in

Hoch/rottspitze and the Bockkai'kopf (S5b5'), traverses the Schtcarzmilt Glacier, 
and finally mounts by the steep E. ridge to the(V4hr.) summit. Magnifi- 
cent panorama. — The ascent from the N. side is easier and not much 
longer. From [the (4V2 hrs.) Kemptner Hiitte (see below) this route diverges to 
the right before reaching the (25 min.) Madele-Joch (see below), skirts round 
the Kratzer via the Schwarze MHz to the Schwarzmilz Glacier and the (3 hrs.) 
summit (guide 10 Ji-, with descent to Einodsbach 12 Jl). — Heilbronner 
Weg from the Bockkar-Scharte to the (3V2 hrs.) Hohe Licht, see below. — 
The Hochfrottspitze (8690'; difficult) may be ascended from the Walten- 
berger-Haus in 2-2^/2 hrs. — The Trettachspitze (8515'), 5-6 hrs. from Ein- 
odsbach via the Einodtberg and over the detritus and snow slopes on the 
N. side, is very difficult (guide 20 jU). 

*Hohe Licht (8700'), 71/2-8 hrs., with guide (from Einodsbach 10 Ji\ 
very attractive and not difficult. From (2V2 hrs.) Einodsbach (p. 29) we 
proceed either via the Peters Alp in 3 hrs., or via the Kiirbertobel, which 
diverges to the left from the Rappenalpen-Tal farther up, and the Happen 
Alp in 31/4 hrs. to the Rappensee- Hiitte (6865'; Inn, 16 beds A; 32 mattresses), 
in grand scenery. Thence the route leads via the Qrosse Steimcharte (p. 32) 
into the Wiesleskar, and then ascends over the S.W. ridge to the(2V2hrs.) 
summit (magnificent view). — A highly interesting path, known as the 
Heilbronner Weg, leads from the Hohe Licht via the Kleine Stein-Scharte 
(8335'), the Steimchartenkopf (8580'), the Wilde Mann (8455'), and the 
Bockkarkopf (8555') to the (3 hrs.) Bockkar-Scharte (see above), but should 
not be tried except by experts with guide (to the Madelegabel 14 J(). — 
Linkerskopf (8055'), from the Rappensee Hut in IV2 hr. (guide 7 J(),

Hohe Ifen (7315'), from Riezlern (p. 32) in 4 hrs. with guide (9.ff., 
to Rohrmoos 13 K.), laborious but interesting. The route leads across the 
Breitach and through the Schwarzwasser - Tal to (IV4 hr.) Auen (4400'; 
accommodation). Hence we continue to the right to the (50 min.) Jfen Alp, 
and ascend the Jfenwand by a narrov? path to (2 hrs.) the summit, which 
affords a splendid view. A toilsome descent (only for experts, with guide) 
leads across the fissured and undulating Jfen Plateau, from which rise the 
gigantic cliffs of the Goltesackerwdnde , past the (2i/2 hrs.) Qottesacker Alp 
(6020'), to the Scharte (6455'), whence we descend steeply via the Hoch 
Alp and Kes$ler Alp to (2 hrs.) the Schrine (p. 32). — Via Schdnebach to

(4025') the path ascends in windings to the Knie (4530') and then through 
the Sperrbachtobel to the (2i/2 hrs.) Kemptner Hiitte (6065'; Inn, 23 beds 
at 3 Ji? and 21 mattresses), finely situated on the Obennddele Alp. In 25 min.

farther to the N.E., at the foot of the Muttlerkopf, is the somewhat higher 
Ober- Mddele-Joch, 6670'). We now descend abruptly to the Rottgumpen

grass slopes and detritus, to the (2 hrs.) Hornbach-Joch (6635'), between 
the HollhSmer (7055') and the Jochspitze {12,^'), with a view of the Hoch- 
vogel and the Lechtal Mts. (club-hut under construction; ascent of the 
Rauhtck, 1V2 hr., see p. 29). We now descend rapidly into the Jochhach- 
Tal to the (IV* hr.) Jochbach Alp (4215'), and then by a tolerable path to 
(1 hr. ) Hinter-Hornbach (3610'; Adler, by the church, plain; guides, Josef 
Friedel and Josef Huber), a village charmingly situated at the opening of 
the Jochtal into the Hornbach-Tal. The ascent hence of the Hochvogel 
(8510"), in 4 hrs. (with guide), via the Schwabegg Alp (5570') and by the 
'Biiumenbeimer Path" (wire -ropes) through the Rosskar and across the 
S.E. arete, sLould not, be attempted by any but experts; an easier route 
leads over the Fuchsen-Sattel (6705') into the Fuchskar and thence across 
detritus and the snow-tield in the Kalte Winkel to the pass (7490'), and 
finally to the left to the Schnur and the (6 hrs.) summit (comp, p. 34). — 
From Hinter-Hornbach a marked club-path leads to the S. to (3 hrs,) the

Hermann-von-Barth-mute (p. 2J:0) — From Hinter-Hornbach a path leads to 
(I'/z hr.) Vorder-Hornbach (3i9U' : two plain inns) in the Lechtal, and via 
Martinau to (1 hr.) Elmen (p. 279). 

To THE Upper Lechtal over the Schrofen Pass, 6V2-7 hrs. to Lech- 
leiten (guide not indispensable), the shortest way to the Arlberg. The road 
crosses the Stillach beyond (2 hrs.) Birgsau (see p. 28; from Einodsbach 
footpath to the S.W. to the road), and ascends the left bank to the (3/* br.) 
Buchenrain Alp (3705'), commanding a splendid view of the Bacher Tal. 
We then follow the left bank of the Rappenalpenbach to the (8/4 hr.) Rohn- 
echlen-BrUcke (3805'), where the road ends (above, on the right, a shooting- 
box of Prince-Regent Luitpold). Passing the Rappen Alp and the (3/4 hr.) 
Bevgerhojle (4140*) at the mouth of the Kdrbertobel (p. 30) we next reach 
(V2 hr.) the Bibev Alp (4300'), on a hill formed by stony deposits. Beyond 
it we again cross the (40 min.) brook and ascend the abrupt slope by a 
rough, stony path to ('/» hr.) the Schrofen Pass (5645'), which commands 
a fine survey of the Geishorn, Liechelkopf , etc., and (S.E,) Biberkopf. 
A good path now descends (keeping to the left) to (V2 hr.) the Austrian 
custom-house at Lechleiten, a few minutes to the left of which lies the 
'Hirschwirt' (p. 282). Travellers whose destination is Worth (p. 282) follow 
the cart-road to the right. 

Over the Haldenwanger-Eck to Hochkkumbach, 8 hrs. (guide not

lacht, see p. 30) tn the Schafalpe in the wooded Hochalpen - Tal and on 
to the Lechtal (p. 282), where a carriage-road ascends to the right to (2 hrs.)

the Rappensee Hutte via the Mutzentohel (steady head essential), the upper 
Biber Alp, and the Schdnzle to (372 hrs.) Lechleiten. 

From Oberstdorf to the SchrOcken, through the Kleine Walser-Tal

Bergunt-Joch (6700'), between the Widderstein and Hoferspitz, to (31/2 hrs.) 
Hochkrumbach (p. 278). Another, but fatiguing and uninteresting pass 
crosses the Starzel-Joch (6130') to (4-5 hrs.) Schoppernav. (p. 277). 

From Oberstdorf to Hittisad via Rourmoos, 81/2 hrs., a route some- 
what deficient in interest. Cart-road from (1 hr.) Tiefenbach (p. 26) on

leads to the N. through the Emje to(10V2M.) Pfronten {j*. 36). 
Beyond the village of C^o^'o -^^-l ffaldensee we reach the picturesque 
lake of that name (3690'), 1 M. long, overshadowed by the precipi- 
tous, wooded Griinspitze (6570'). 

The 'Schochenspitze (6785'), ascended from Ilaldensee by the 'Saal-

Kollespitte or Eelltnspitze (7350'; 2V2 hrs). and the Gimpel (T140'; 2 hrs. I. 
The first is easy and intere.^tin-j; ; the two last difficult. 

The Tannheimer -Tal terminates here. The road descends, 
passes between the hamlets of Raut and Gacht (with the wooded 
Birken-Tal, the Ladienspitze, and the Leilnchspitze on the right), 
and enters the Gacht Pass, the profound and beautifully-wooded 
ravine of the Weissenbach. At (31 M.~) Weissenbach (2^i0' :, Lowe; 
Lamm) we enter the broad and unattractive Lechtal (one-horse 
carriage to Keutte 6 K., but not always to be had). The Klauswald-

ascend through wood in windings to the Burg Hotel (open May Ist-Oct. 15th, 
14 beds at IV2 M)^ with view-terrace. About 2 min. higher are the ruins 
of a castle destroyed in 1646, which King Louis II. proposed to rebuild 
(model at Neu-Schwanstein). From this point we enjoy a fine view of the 
Schwangau Alps, the Wetterstein peaks and Zugspitze, and the Tannheim 
group, as well a^ of the Bavarian plain. A footpath descends from the inn

Fiissen (2615'), a small town (4458 inhab.) charmingly situated 
on the Lech, with a castle erected by the bishops of Augsburg in 
1322 and restored by King Max II., presents an attractive picture 
of a mediaeval town. Below the castle are the suppressed Benedictine 
abbey of St. Mang, founded in 629 (now private property), and the 
Church of St. Magnus, erected in 1701 on older foundations. The 
gate in the town-wall between tlic castle and the churcli commands 
a fine view. Near the Bayerischer Hof is a bronze Statue of Prince

I'/i •^)h closed on June 13th, the anniversary of King Louis II. 's death. The 
chateau of Hohenschwangau is open at the same hours (adm. 50 pf.). 

Hohenschwangau (2690') , a small village at the foot of a liilJ 
crowned by the castle of the same name, is a pleasant summer-resort 
with numerous attractive walks in the vicinity. It lies near the 
beautiful bluish-green *Alp-See, wliich is girdled with fine woods, 
while the steep crags of the Pilgerschrofen rise above its S. end. 
Opposite the Alpenrose Hotel begins the 'Fiirsten-Strasse' (open to 
pedestrians only), from which (3 min.) a road to the right to Schloss 
Hohenschwangau and (8 min.) the above-mentioned footpath to 
Fiissen diverge. About 40 paces farther on a footpath leads to the 
left to the 'Pindar-Platz', a rocky projection with a view of the 
lake (p. 42). Well-made paths make the entire circuit of the lake 
(II/4 hr.). — The footpath to the old Schloss ascends opposite the 
Lisl Hotel (5 min.; adm., see above; duration of visit about 40 min.). 

^Schloss Hohenschwangau (2840'), formerly called Schwan- 
stein, originally belonged to the house of Guelph but in 1567 passed 
to the Dukes of Bavaria. It was sold for a trifling sum in 1820 ^nd 
in 1832 was purchased by King Max II. of Bavaria (d. 1864), then 
crown-prince, who caused the ruin to be entirely reconstructed and 
decorated with frescoes from German legend and history by Schwind^ 
Lindenschmit , and other Munich artists. The castle commands 
charming views of the plain, the Alp-See, and Neu-Schwanstein. 
It was the favourite residence of Kings Max II. and Louis II. The 
little garden, to the left of the entrance to the castle, contains a 
Marble Bath, cut out of the rock, with two nymphs, by Schwan- 
thaler, and the Lion Fountain, by the same artist. 

Opposite the ascent to Hohenschwangau, near the Lisl Hotel, 
begins the road to (25-30 min.) Neu-Schwanstein, from which 
(5 min.) the road to the Blockenau (p. 41) diverges to the right; 
6 min. farther on (opposite the footpath from the Hotel Schwansee) 
a steep footpath ascends on the right to the Jugend; and 12 min. 
farther on a bridle-path diverges to the right, near a booth on the 
left side of the road, for the Jugend and the Marien-Briicke. The 
road next passes tlie Schloss Restaurant (5 rooms, well spoken of) 
and in 8 rain, reaches the castle of — 

*Neu-Schwanstein (3165'), begun by King Louis II. in 1869 
on the site of the old castle of Vorder- Hohenschwangau, and beau- 
tifully situated on a precipitous rock above the profound ravine 
of the PoUat. The castle, built in the llomanesque style by DoU- 
mann, Riedel, and Hofmann, is planned somewhat after the style 
and arrangement of the Wartburg, but on a much larger scale. 
Through the Gatehouse on the N.E. (adm., see above) we enter the 
first court, in which to tlie right (N.W.) is the Palas or main build- 
ing, to the left (S.li.) the Kemenate^ or women's apartments, and 
in the middle the Ritterbau. The visit takes about 1 hr. The castle

is splendidly fitted up, and its windows command beautiful views 
of Hohenschw angau and the Alp-See to the S., and of the gorge 
of the Pollat and the Marien-Briicke to the E. 

The imposing Palas haa four stories : the groundfloor contains the 
offices, the first floor is occupied by the attendants, the second is unfin- 
ished, and the royal apartments are on the third. Visitors ascend to the 
third floor by a staircase of 96 steps in the massive N. ti)wer, 196' high. 
The landing at the top of the staircase is adorned with frescoes by Hau- 
schild, illustrating the legend of Sigurd. To the left we pass through the 
Adjutants' Room to the King's Studij, with scenes from the story of Tann- 
hauser by Aigner; and thence through the Stalactite Grotto to the former 
Winter Garden, a balcony commanding a fine view of the plain. Next follow 
the Sitting Room, with pictures from the Lohengrin legend by Hauschild: 
the Dressing Room, with scenes from the lives of Walter von der Vogel- 
weide and Hans Sachs by Ille ; the Gothic 5edc/ia;n6er, with illustrations 
of the story of Tristan and Isolde by Spiess; the Oratory, with scenes 
from the life of Louis IX. by Hauschild (fine view of the valley of the 
Pollat from the balcony). The Dining Nail is embellished with scenes 
from the Wartburg under the Landgrave Hermann , by F. Piloty. The 
ante-chamber leads back to the landing, whence we enter the Throne Roain, 
with pictures by Hauschild. representing the relations of monarchy to 
religion. It has a mosaic floor and an open loggia. — The lauding at the 
top of the staircase on the fourth door is adorned al.^o with a series of 
12 pictures from the story of Gudrun, by Hauschild. On this floor is the 
large "fesfsaal or Sdngersaal (Minstrels' Hall), 90' long, with pictures from 
Wolfram von E8chenbach''s 'Parzival' by Spiess, Munsch, and F. Piloty. 

A footpath, diverging to the left from the road at the N. angle of the 
castle, leads to the \V. round the castle to the above-mentioned bridle- 
path. Before the latter is reached (4 min.), a footpath de.«cends to the 
left to the Gorge of the Pollat, where we have a view of the castle and 
of the Pdllat Water/all (So*). We ascend by the bridle-path and in 
5 min. reach a point whence two footpaths diverge: one, to the right, 
leading down to the (1 min.)"^*Jugend (2955'), a clearing in the wood 
commanding a charming view of Hohenschwangau and the Alp-See; the 
other, to the left, ascends to the (4 min.) "^^Marien-Briicke, a handsome 
iron bridge 138' long, which boldly spans the rocky gorge of the Pollat 
at a height of 295' above the waterfall and affords the best view of Xeu- 
Schwanstein. — Returning from the bridge, we take the path to the left, 
which brings us in 2 min. to the Blockenau road, at which also the bridle- 
path ends (to Hohenschwangau village by this road V2 hr.). 

From Hohenschwangau a direct and interesting route leads to Linder- 
hof (p. 57) in 6 hrs. (guide unnecessary). A road leads through the Pollat- 
Tal to the (li/--' hr.) royal shnoting-lodge in the Blockenau, and thence a 
good footpath crosses the Schiitzensteig or Jigersteig (i660'.i to the (1 hr.) 
Jdger-Hutte and down to the (1 hr.) Ammerwald Hotel (p. 58). 

To the Tegelberg (593'J'), 3 hrs., a pleasant excursion. We ascend the 
hunting-path from the Marien-Briicke (see above) or the road to (3 M.) the 
Bldctenau (see above), diverging to the left at the 'Verbotener Weg' placard 
and ascending in windings to the (2 hrs.) royal hnnting-lodge (closed), which 
commands a beautiful view of mountain and plain. Hence to the top of 
the Brandschrofen (6170'), marked by a cross, in 25 min. more (steady head 
necessary). During the shooting-season, at the end of Aug. and beginning 
of Sept.. the ascents of the Tegelberg, Sauling, etc., are closed to the public. 

The *Siluling (6715') may be ascended from Hohenschwangau by a 
club-path (steep at the end) via the Aelpele in 372-4 hrs.. without difficulty 
(guide 6 J(, not indispensable for experts). Fine view from the W. summit, 
on which is a cr.j.'^s (Austrian frontier). The descent may be made by a 
marked path to (2V2 hrs.) P/lach (p. 42; ascent thence in 3V2-4 hrs.)' or 
direct to the Schluxen Inn (p. 42). 

The Hochplatte (6830'; guide necessary), ascended from the (2V2 hrs.) 
.lager-Hiitte in the Pollat- Tal (see above) in 2-2 V2 hrs. (last hour fatiguing), 
commands a finer view than the Sauling. 



42 /. Route 8 REUTTE. 

A pleasant day's excursion may be made from Ilolicnscliwangau to 
the ruin of ^falkenttein (p. 37; carriage with one horse 18, two horses 30^ 
and fee, there and bark). 

Pedestrians from Ilolienscbwangau to Eeutte C^ M.) follow the 'Fiirsten- 
Strasse' (p 40), high on the N. bank of the Alp-See, or the good path past 
the 'Pindar-Platz' (p. 4(1), to the end of the lake, and then return to the 
road. We pass the (1^/4 M.) Austrian frontier-station and descend in wind- 
ings, turninj; to the left at tlie {\U hr.) Schlva:en Inn (well spoken of), and 
following the Pinswang road to (3 M.) Pflacli (see below). 

The Road from Fussen to Reutte leads up the right bank of 
tlic Lech to (7 min.) a narrow ravine (on the left bank a bust of 
King Max II. ; on the right bank a war-monument). At the St, Mang- 
tritt the gorge is spanned by the iron Konig-Max-Steg^ affording a good 
view of the fall of the Lech, and leading, to the right, to the (5 min.) 
stilphur-baths of Faulenhach (p. 39) and, to the left, to the (^/^ hr.) 
charmingly situated Inn zur Ldnde. — We then cross the (5 min.) 
Schwarz-Briicke (p. 39) and reach the Austrian frontier at the

the Lech by the (36 min.) VLrichs-Briicke (rail, station, see p. 37), 
passes Musau and Rossschldg, and shortly before reaching (13/4hr.) 
P/lach (see above) recrosses to the right bank. We here cross the 
Arch-Bach and proceed through the broad valley of the Lech to 
(21/4 M.) Eeutte (see below). 

Pcdeairians will find it shorter and pleasanter to diverge to the left 
before reaching the Ulrichs-Brucke, and proceed by Unter- Pinswang (leav- 
ing the Scfiluxen Inn^ see above, to the left) and the Kniepass (2980'), a rocky 
barrier narrowly confining the Lech, to (i'/a M.) Pflach.

(red marks; guide 12 AT.) crosses the Grunstein-Scharte {Tdrle; 7450'), be- 
tween the Griinstein and the W. Hohe Griesspitze (p. 46), and descends 
through the Holle to (81/2 hrs.) Obsteig (p. 45). 

The Upsspitze {Daniel; 7660'), ascended from Lermoos via the Duftel 
Alp (4865') in 41/2 hrs., is fatiguing but very interesting; guide 10 A^. — 
The *Zug8pitze (9720'), ascended from Ehrwald via the Wiener- Neustadier 
But in 6V2 hrs., is difficult and should be attempted only by adepts (guide 
12 A". ; comp. p. 54). An easier ascent leads via the Ehrwalder Alp., the 
Gatterl, and the Enorr-Butte to the (8 hrs.) top (guide 15 A"., with descent 
to Garmi.^ch via the Reintal 23, via the Hollental 25 A^.); see p. 5i. 

The Schneefemerkopf (9435') is ascended from Ehrwald in 6-61/2 hrs. 
(difficult; guide CO A'.). We cross the Holzerwiesen, with a magnificent 
view of the valley and the Mieminger Mt?., to the (2^4 br.^) base of the 
Bolzereck (7785'), the ascent of which, a very difficult climb of 2-2V2 hrs., 
is then made; beyond this the path, not difficult though laborious, tra- 
verses the wild cutting called the 'Neue Welt' to the (1^/4 hr.) summit of 
the Schneefernerkopf (p. 55). Descent via the (21/2 hrs.) Wiener-Neustadter 
Hiitte (p. 54) or the (IV4 hr.) Knorr-Hiitte (p. 54). A not very difficult pass 
leads from the Schneefernerkopf to the Zugspitze (I1/4 hr.).

and Tyrol, is fairly level as far as (21 M.) Biberwier (3270'; Lowe, 
well spoken of; Neuwirt), whence it ascends, with a tine retrospect 
of the Wetterstein Mts., past the Weissensee (3560', left; Restaurant 
Lerchenheim) and the beautiful dark-blue Blindsee (3626'; right, 
below the road), to the (17 M.) Fern Pass (3970'; Inn, 20 beds at 
11/4-2 K., well spoken of). The old road past the castle of Fernstein 
is prohibited and is blocked halfway by a wall. The new road winds 
round to the E. side of the valley (^a path descending to the right, 
beyond telegraph-post 160, 20 min. from the inn. is a short-cut), and 
then turns back and descends the W. side of the valley, below the 
old road. The picturesque castle of Fernsie'm, adjoined by a modern 
chateau of Baron Ziegler, rises above the road to the right; at its base 
(20 M.) the Fernstein Inn (3305'; burned down in Feb. 1910). 
To the left, in the deep pine-clad valley, on a rock rising from the 
dark-greeu Fernstein Lake, are the ruins of the Siymundshury, once 
a hunting-seat of Duke Sigmund of Tyrol (adm. procured through 
the landlord of the Fernstein Inn). The road crosses the outlet of 
the lake by a handsome bridge and leads past the mouth of the 
Teyen-Tal (p. 278), on the right, to — 

231/0 M. Nassereit (2745' ■^*PosL with garden, 60 beds at 1.60-3, 
H. I K.; Gr'uner Baum, Lamm, both plain but good), a village 
with 1200 inhabitants. Behind the church is a small lake. The 
road forks here, the right branch leading to Imst, the left to Telfs. 

Excursions. The *JElple3kopf (741(y; 4 brs. ; easy) i.s reached hy a 
marked path throu-ih the Oajiein-Tol to (li/z hr.) the ahanduned miue on 
the Dirstentritt (4680'), thence t» the left across the ridge to the (2Vj hra.) 
top (fine view, comp. p. 316). — The Wannig (SlSo'-, 5 hr.-^., with guide), 
ascended via the Mittenan Alp and tlie Hohe Warte, presents no ditlicnlty 
to experts and commands an imposing view. 

The Road fhom Nassereit to Imst (IIV2 M. ; driving prefer- 
able; diligence 4-5 times daily in I72 br., 1 K. 80, to the station 
2 K. 40 h.; one-horse carr. 6 K.) passes a spinning-factory and trav- 
erses the broad, shadeless GurgUr Tal, on the left rises the wooded 
Tschirgant (p. 316). 28 M. DoUinger Inn; farther on, at (30 M.) 
Tarrenz (2750'; Lamm), we see the chateau of Starkenberg (p. 316) 
on a hill to the right. A fine view of the Pitztal and Oetztal 
mountains now opens to the S. 

341/.2 M. Imst (p. 316). Then past BrennbichL and across the Inn 
to (36 M.) the railway-station of Imst (p. 316). 

From Nassereit to Tblfs, 131/4 M. (pay in the diligence for 
171/2 M.), omnibus thrice daily in summer, see p. 42; carr. and pair 
28 K. The road, much preferable to the slightly shorter one to Imst, 
ascends to the E. (to the right, beyond Rossbach, a shorter but 
steeper route), via Holzleiten (3565'; Traube), to (oi/.^ M.) Obsteig 
(3265'; Lowe; Stem, 22 beds at 1-1.40, pens. 4.50-5 ".«'., both well 
spoken of), a summer-resort with 540 inhabitants.

bdund for the Arllterg Railway are recommended to take the steep footpath 
diverging to the right near the church of Obsteig and leading to (1 hr.) 
Motz (p. 315). 

We proceed over the uiuliilatiiig plateau ( Mieminyrr-Terra^se), 
enjoying a series of fine views of the Inntal and its mountains, with 
tlie picturesque ruin of Klimyn in a gorge to the right, and the Mie- 
niinger diain to the N., via Fronhnusen and Barwies (2805'; Lowe, 
25 beds at 1-2 A'., well spoken of) to (Oi^M.) Ober-Mieming (2875';

frequented as a summer-resort (^238 inhab.).

the Alpl-Scharle (7.o75'), between the Hochwand and the Hochplattig, to 
(15 hrs.) the Tillfuss Alp, rather difficult (guide to Ehrwald 15 A'.). 

The road to (4 M.) Allitz (p. 315) diverges to the right at Ober-Mieming, 
and passes (1 M.) Unter- Mieming (Neuwirt, with mineral baths ; Kreuz) and 
.Sie. A marked path leads from See via Tobland and Zein to the (3 M. from 
< M)or-3Iieming) Locherboden (267U'), a pilgrim-resort, commanding a fine view 
of the valley of the Inn. From Unter-Mieming a good footpath (marked) 
leads via Miihlried and the Oelberg-Kapdle (2520'; view) to the ferry over the 
Inn at (U/-.. M.) tiUims (p. 315; shortest route from the Mieminger Terrasse 
to the Arllierg railway). When the flag ia hoisted the ferry-boat does not

to (4V2 M.) Telfs, via FicU (2835'), on the N. slope of the Achberg (3375'; 
easily ascended from P'icht in 1/2 br. ; fine view).

of the Krottenkopf, see p. 52). — From Schlattan we may return by the old 
Mittenwald road (good tobogganing in winter). 

The Risser-See (2565'), 35 min. from Garmisch. From the Post Hotel 
we proceed towards the S. and then cross the meadows in the direction 
of the Risserkopf (3695'), a wooded height immediately below the Alpspitze. 
The charming little Risser-See (boating; bathing; tobogganing in winter) 
lies in a hollow behind the Hotel-Pension Rissersee (p. 48). Fine view 
from the (20 min.) Katzenstein (2875'), whence a footpath leads to Hara- 
raersbach (p. 51; s/* hr.). To the Kreuzeck-Haus, see p. 51.

50 /. R. 9. — Map.p. 48. PARTNACHKLAMM. Excursions 

Maximilianshdhe, 20 minutes. Leaving Garmisch, we cross the upper 
Loisach bridge and ascend to the left past the (5 min.) rifle-range and 
through wood to the Caf ^-Restaurant Almhiitte, on the S. slope of the Kramer 
(p. 52). Beautiful view from the Parapluie , 10 min. to the E. — The 
Kramer Plateau - Weg , a shady and generally level promenade, about 
3'/.- M. long, skirting the wooded slope of the Kramer from near the Hotel 
.Sonnenbichl {]k 48) and aft'ording charming views, finally descends through 
a gorge to the upper Loisach. 

The ruin ofWerdenfels (2585') is reached by a path (guide-post) diverging 
to the left from the Murnau road, 1 M. from Garmisch, near the Schwaig- 
waiig (2245'); thence to the top in 20 minutes. View obstructed by trees. 

The Pflegersee (2770'), 1 hr. from Garmisch. We ascend the road to 
the N. via the Oertel- Promenade (flnger-post), with a view of the valley, and 
past the Hotel Sonnenbichl (p. 48), to the little Pflegersee at the foot of the 
Selestcdnde (to the It., the precipices of the Kramer). We may return via 
the Kellerleiten to the (1 hr.) Sommerkeller at Garmisch or via the Schloss- 
Wald and (3/4 hr.) Werdenfels (see above). 

The Kuhflucht (17^ hr.), entered from (3M.-, rail, in 10 min.) farc/ja7J/ 
(!>. 48 i we cross the Loisach to the Milhldorfl., and ascend to the left through 
pine-wood), is a ravine, with pretty waterfalls formed by a stream i>suing 
from a fissure, 50 ft. in length, in a lofty cliff (ascent to the highest fall 
requires a steady head). A well-shaded path (red marks) leads from the 
3Iuhldurfl to the' (2 hrs.) Esterberg Alp (Krottenkopf, p. 52). 

'Partnach-Klamm and Vorder-Graseck (I'/z hr. ; guide quite unneces- 
sary: omu. several times daily from the railway station in 1/2 hr. to the 
Kestaurant Parluachklamm, 1 Jl). After following the Mittenwald road to 
the S. of Parteukirchen for a few paces, we turn to the right at a finger- 
post, and in Vj hr. reach the first bridge, at the mouth of the Partnach 
valley, which may be reached also from the station in 40 min. by a shady 
path along the Partnach (finger-posts). Crossing this bridge (to the right 
the 'liuhe Weg' to the Reintal-Hospiz, p. 51) we pass the biidge leading 
tu the electricity works and reach the (12 min.) Restaurant Partnachklamm^ 
or Wildena^i (with beds), near the second bridge, where the road ends. 
Beyond the bridge the direct path to Graseck ascends in gentle curves to 
the left (20 min.), while the path to the 'Klamm', or gorge, leads to the 
right-, G min., third bridge (sheiter-hut). The (10 min.) fourth (iron) bridge 
CKlumm-Briicke), 52' long and 225' above the Partnach, is the finest point. 
Beyond this bridge the path ascends in steps to the (10 min.) forester's 
house of Vorder-Graseck (2925'; Restaurant, with 5 beds), where a fine view 
of the Wettfr.'^tein range is enjoyed. From this point to the Eckhatier, see 
below; to Mittenwald via Elmau, see p. 55. — A narrow path (Triftsteig), 
Constructed fur the use of the 'lumberers' and diverging to the left before 
llie third bridge, leads in 74 l^r. along the bottom of the gorge, close to 
the water (waterproof advisable). It is provided at places with wire-ropes 
and is quite safe for those reasonably free from giddiness, while it 
.^^hortens tho walk to the Schachen and the Reintal by 20 niiu. as compared 
with the path via Graseck. From the end of the gorge we reach in 5 min. 
a guide-post, where we turn to the left and ascend in '/< hr. to Vorder 
Graseck (frequent guide-posts). The path to the right at the first guide- 
post leads to the Reintal and the Schachen (p. 53). 

The -Eckbauer (4060'). We may either follow a marked path through 
the Eselgrahen from the Kaimen-Bad in 172-2 hrs., or take another steep 
path (also marked ; usually .shady in the afternoon) from Graseck (see above), 
which turns to the left at a (1/4 hr.) finger-post on the route to Elmau 
(p. 55), ascends the grassy slopes in windings, passes through wood, and 
reaches the (3/4 hr.) Eckbauer (now a health-resort in connection with the 
Kainzenbad). Neither path is recommended in wet weather. The Pavilion 
(rfmts.) on the top of the hill (2 min.) commands an admirable panorama ; 
below lies the deep, wooded valley of the Ferchenbach. The descent may 
be made to the N.K. via the village of Wamberg (3335' ; 'Aim Restaurant) to 
the Mittenwald road, then to the left at the guide-post via HSfle to (I72 hr.) 
Schlaftan (p. 51) and through the Hasen-Tal and the Bremstall - Wald to 
(^4 hr.) Parteukirchen. 



fromPortenkirchen. HOLLENTALKLAMM. Map,p.48.-1. R. 9. 51 

To the Reintal-Hospiz (3120 'i 2V2 hrs.). Path either through the 
Partnacbklamm and the Reintal, ascending to the right from (I1/2 hr.) the 
finger-post in the Wieselc-Graben (see below) to ('/4 hr.) the hospice; or 
diverging to the right at the opening of the Partnachklamm (V2 hr. from 
Partenkirchen) and crossing the Hohe Weg (steep at the beginning only) 
to the (IV* hr.) 'Reintal-Hospiz (42 beds, pens. 6-S Ulf), commanding a fine 
view. Excursions: by the level Feenweg to the Hinterklamm (p. 54), 3/4 hr. ; 
to the DrefimoserHiUte (4225'), 1 hr. ; to the Kreuzeck-Haus (see below) via 
the Bernardein-Jaidsteiti, 2'l4 hrs. 5 to the Hochalm (see below), ^3/4 hrs. ; 
to the Stuiben Alp (5310'), 2V2 hrs.; to the Enorr-Hiitte (p. 54), 5 hrs. 

*Kreuzeck-Haus (.54'^'; 3 hrs. ; guide, 5 Jt, unnecessary), the easiest 
and most attractive excursion among the lower heights. The route ascends 
in windings (good club-path) from the (V2 hr.) Risser-See (p. 49) for the 
most part through wood, by the Risser Moos and past the shooters hut Bei 
den Trogeln to the Kreuzjoch Saddle (51SU') and the (3 hrs.) Kreuzeck (5420'), 
with the Adolf - Zoeppritz-Eavs (*lnn all the year round, 19 beds and 23 mat- 
tresses ; telephone) and a striking view. Thi.s is the starting-point for the 
ascents of the Alpspitze and Hochblassen. Excellent district for ski-iug. 
The path then pafses the royal shouting-hut and leads round the basin uf 
the Bodenlahn-Tal to the (I/2 hr.) Hochalm (5595'), commanding an admirable 
view of the Alpspitze, Dreitorspitze, and other peak.s. — From the Kreuz- 
eck-Haus a new club-path ascends pa.'^t the Hupfleiten-Joch (5755') and the 
ruinous cottages belonging to a deserted lead-mine (5010' and 4785') to the 
(2V4 hr^.) HOllental-HutU. — The HSUentorkopf (7055'), a splendid point of 
view, may be ascended from the Hochalm via the Hollentor (GSGO*) by 
climbers not subject to giddiness in 1 hr., with guide (6 Jl). The steep 
descent from the Hollentor by the Rindettceg into the Mathahenkar and to 
the (I3/4 hr.) Hdllental-Hutte should not be attempted without a guide (see 
below). An easier path descends from the Hochalm or the Kreuzeck-Haus 
via the Bernadein Hut (red way-marks) into the Bodenlahn-Tal and to the 
(I'/z hr.) Reintal-Hospiz (see above). The direct descent from the Kreuzeck 
into the Bodenlahn-Tal (way-board) is very steep and not to be recommended. 

*HoIlental-Klamm, 2V2-3 hrs. from Garmisch (there and back 1/2 day). 
Omnibus six times daily in */« hr. (fare 80 pf., from Partenkirchen 1 Jl) via 
SchmOlz to Hammersbach (2635'; HoUental Inn), at the month of the Htillen- 
tal, which may be reached by pedestrians also in I hr. by a pleasant path 
diverging to the left at the W. end of Garmisch. From the inn we asceutl 
by a shady path on the left bank of the Hammersbach, tinally in zi^zag.'^ 
cut nut of the sheer rocky face below the Stauirenwand (see below), to the 
(1 hr.) Hollentalklamni-Hiitti (3430"; rfmts.) at the entrance to the Klamm, 
where tickets of adm. (50 pf.) are sold. The path through the gorge, built 
in 19(J2-7. is protected by railings and quite safe: guide unnecessary, water- 
prO' f desirable. It ascends the Klamm (the lower part also known as 
Maxklamm) by means of numerous galleries and tunnels, skirting the 
precipitous rocks by iron bridges, and affording jiicturesque views of the 
cascades of the Hammersbach. The finest point is below the iron Klamm 
Bridge (see below), where the snuw lies in two avalanches about 330' wide 
until the height of summer; ti) the left the Hcilleutorkopf rises perpendi- 
cularly t(i a height of nearly 3300'. From the (V2 hr.) exit of the Klamm 
(3810'), beyond which we juin the upper path (8 min. ; see below), we may 
proceed to the HoUental- Anger -wiih the (^4 hr.) HoUental Club-Hut (i53o'\ Inn, 
14 beds and 22 mattresses), in grand environs. 

The Upper Klammweg, now seldom used, ascends from Hammersbach, 
soon becoming steeper, through the Stangenwald to the perpendicular rocks 
of the Waxenstein^ 330 yds. before reaching which we join the direct path 
from Ober-Grainau, at a point where another path diverges for the hut 
at the entrance to the Hcillental I'^hr.). The •Stangensteig'' (3 ft. broad; 
wire-rope and railings) then skirts the precipice, commanding a fine view 
towards the plain, and leads to (1' 2 hr.) the iron 'Klamm Brucke (3630'), 
33 yds. in length and. 255' above the Hammersbach. A path (out of repair ; 
not advisable) diverging to the left here leads to the miners' huts (see 
above). The path on the right bank proceeds along the gorge to a (20 min.) 
wooden bridge (3915'), and to the (3/4 hr.) Hiillental Club-Hut (see above).

From Hammersbach to the Badersee via Ober-Gralnau, fine route 
through wood in 3/* hr. 

*Badersee (251U' ; 5V2 M. from the railway-station ; omnibus several times 
daily in 1 hr., fare 1 Jt ; one-horse carriage 6, two-horse iO Jf). This ex- 
cursion should be combined with that to the Eibsee. The road diverges 
to the left from that to the Eibiee V2 M. beyond Unter-Orainau (.-ee below); 
jireferable route for pedestrians via Ober-Orainau (see below). The small, 
clear, emerald-green lake (adm. 50 pf., charged in the hotel-bill), 1 M. 
round and 60' deep, framed with trees, is overshadowed by the huge pre- 
cipices of the Waxenstein-Kamm. The "Alpen- Hotel dt Pension Badersee 
(85 beds at 2-3, IJ. 1, D. 21/2, pens. G-8 Ji)-, on its bank, is pleasant for a 
jirolonged stay. A row on the lake should not be omitted (one person 
5'J pf., two or more 25 pf. each); on a rock below the surface is the copper 
ligure of a nixie. Wood walks ascend from the lake t) the right to the 
Eibsee road (l-iy* l>r.). 

The Eibsee (3190'), 6 M. from Garmisch, at the base of the Zugspitze, 
is reached by the sunny road (diligence from Garmiach-Partenkirchen

thence to (U^ hr.) the \ii\i.e. (Terne\'< fnn, with veranda and baths, 80 beds 
from 2, pens. 6-7 Ulf). The Eibsee, ^/t s |. M. in area and 90* deep (temp, 
in summer 59 64° Fahr.), has seven small islands and is enclosed by wooded 
hills, above which tower the enormous rocky walls of the Waxenstein- 
Kamm and the Zugspitze. Travellers are rowed (50 pf. each) in 20 min. 
to the Ludwigs-Insel in the middle of the lake, where the echoes are 
awakened by a shot (50 pf.). The picturesque little Frillensee, to the S.E. 
of the Eibsee, may be reached from the inn in 5 min. bv boat, or in 
S min. on foot. — From the Eibsee over the TSrlen (5230') to Ehrwald {i hrs.),

Neuslddter Hiitte, see p. 54 (guide 15 Jl)- — From the Eibsee to Orieseii 
((>. 58), 272 hrs. (uninteresting; not recommended after rain). The route 
(red marks) skirts the lake to the right, then ascends t;> the right, partly 
through swampy woods, to the ridge of the Miesiugberg (3345'), and linally 
descend? steeply to the Loisach. 

Mountain Ascknts (guides, see p. 49). — The Wank (5^40'; 31/2 lirs. : 
marked path, guide not indispensable) commands an admirable view of 
the Wefterstein and Karwendel Mts., the valley of Parteukirchen, etc. 
The route from Parteukirchen leads via the Lukas Terrasse to the (I'/a br.) 
Krenf-Biitte (3460'), then steeply through woo.i, and finally over the ridge 
to (2V4 brs.) the top. The descent may be made to the E. via the Ameis- 
herg to the Esterberg-IIof., or S.E. to the (2 hrs.) Gschwandnei' Bauer (p. 49). 

The Kramer (6505'). on the left bank of the Loisach, above Garmisch, 
affords a good survey of the Wetterstein range. A bridle-path leads from 
the Sommerkeller at Garmisch to the (2V2 hrs.) Konigsstand {iQdo' ; view). 
The footpath to the Kramer-Kreuz, on the summit (41/2 h.-s- from Garmisch), 
diverge^ to the left at a shooter's hut (guide-board), V2 l»r. before the Konigs- 
stand (guide unnecessary for experts).

Partenkirchen we follow the Triftstei^r (p. fO) through the Paitnacbklamm 
to the (1 hr.) bridge over the Ferc/ienbach (•2625'), the left bank of wbicli 
we skirt to the (25 min.) Steilenfdlle. The path then ascends rapidly tu 
the right through wood to a .-mall .<;hrinc, turns to the left, and crosses 
a clearing after a few minutes, from which a path through wood leads to 
tbe (i hr.) royal bridle-path from Klmau (pp. 55. 60). The route next ascends 
to the right to tbe (3/4 hr.) Wetterttein Alp (4?0:,'; rfmts.) and pa?t the

laborious, but not difficult for tolerable climbers and very interesting. As 
on p. 53 to the (1 hr.) bridge over the Fevchenhach (2G25'); at the finger- 
post we ascend to the right into the Reintal and cross the Partnach three 
times; V2 hr., at the Wiesele-Graben, finger-post pointing to the right to 
the Reintal-Hospiz (p. 51); 2 min. farther on the path crosses the Bodenlahne 
(the Alpspitze and Hochblassen rise on the right), and then ascends to the 
right through the monotonous Stuihenwald (the Mittcr-Klamm remaining 
on the left). After 3/4 hr., at a point where the path again approaches 
the Partnach , we obtain a fine view of the wild Hinter-Klamm. We 
now descend tu the Partnach, and follow its left bank to (V* hr.) the 
Bock-Hiitte (3475'), where the magnificent Hintere Reintal is disclosed to 
view. Then past the Sieben Spriinge (a copious spring; 3595') to (2/4 hr.) 
the Vordere Blaue Oinape^ beautifully situated below the path, to the left. 
The Blaugumpen-Eutle (3880'; closed) on a rocky height at the lower end 
of the lake commands a splendid view. The path now ascends between 
huge fragments of rock, the remains of an old landslip; 1/2 hr. farther on 
lies the Hintere Blaue Gumpe C3975'), usually dry in autumn. Farther up the 
path ascends across an extensive avalanche track (on the left the imposing 
Fall of the Partnach) to the (V4 hr.) Anger (4485'), the uppermost part of 
the valley. The ridge (4495'; 3/4 hr.) commands a fine view of the imposing 
head of the valley, and, in the opposite direction, of the Blaue Gumpen 
with the pavilion on the Schachen high above. On the Untere Anger, 
8 min. farther on, is the Anger Hut (4480'; Inn. 4 mattresses; telephone). 
We cross the Partnach higher up and either take the bridle-path to the 
left, through wood, to the Obere Anger (4735'). or ascend the right bank 
of the stream to the (10 min.) Partnach- Ursprung (4755'), a gorge filled 
with the debris of avalanches, from which the copious brook bursts forth. 
In the latter case we retrace our steps for a few paces and ascend to the 
right to the bridle-path. We then ascend through creeping pines and by 
a zigzag path on the slope of the Piatt to (2 hrs.) the Knorr-Hiitte (6730'; 
*Inn, with sleeping-house, 16 beds at 3, 20 mattresses at 2 ^,- telephone; 
good spring water), usually crowded on Sat. nights. From the club-hut 
we ascend (bridle-path) the rocky slope of the Piatt to the (IV2 hr.) Platt- 
Hutte (8285'), a shelter hut on the margin of the Grosse Schnee-Ferner, where 
horses are dismissed. We cross the neve in ^/t hr , mount a slope of debris

A shorter ascent leads from the Eibsee via the Wiener-Necstautek 
HoTTK (6V2-7 hrs.; for expert climbers with steady heads only; guide 15 J(). 
The Tiirlen route is followed to (V2 hr.V the finger-post mentioned at 
p. 5d, whence a steep and laborious path to the left ascends to the (3V2-4 hrs.) 
wiener -NeustJldter Hiitte in the Oesterreichische Schneekar (72^5'; Inn, 
25 mattresses); thence a steep and giddy ascent (wire-rope and footholds) to 
the (IV2-2 hrs.) arete and the (20 min.) W, summit. — From Ehrwai.d (p. 44) 
climbers may either (if free from giddiness; guide 12 Z., with descent to 
the Knorr-Hiitte or Eibsee 20 K.) ascend the 'Georg-Jager-Steig' (red marks) 
to the (31/2 hrs.) Wiener- Nevstddter Hiitte and as above to the (21/2 hrs.) W. 
summit; or (longer but easier) they may proceed by the Ehrwalder Alp

the Feldem-Jochl, and the Gatterl (see below), to the (6hrs.) Knorr-HiUte and 
thence to the (3 hrs.) summit. — From the Hollental-Hctte (p. 51) to the 
Zagspitze 5-6 hra. (guide 20 fr.). This is the most interesting ascent, and 
since the path has been provided with numerous iron pegs and wire-ropes 
it is no longer very difficult for expert climbers with steady heads, unless 
it is covered with snow. We ascenil the steep rocky slopes of the Brett to 
the Hollentalkar and thence across the Hollental Glacier to the arete and 
E. summit. 

The Schneefernerkopf (9435'l may be ascended without difficulty fop 
adepts from the Knorr-Hiitte (p. 54), in 3 hrs. with guide (12 Jl). We 
follow the Zugspitze route as far as the (2 hrs.) 'Sand Reisse', then ascend 
to the left over the Schnee-Ferner, and finally mount over rocks to the 
(1 hr.) summit. The view is little inferior to that from the Zuerspitze. 
Comp. p. 44. — The Hochwanner (9010') is a fatiguing but very interesting: 
ascent (5 hrs. from the Knorr-Hiitte; guide 16 Ulf). We ascend across the 
Oatterl tn the Feldern-Jdchl (see lielow), then proceed to the left over 
the Kothach- Battel (7165') to the (2V2 hrs.) Steineme Huttlen ('stone huts'; 
6325') in the Kotbaeh-Tal, whither also a path ascends from the Tillfuss 
Alp (p. 60) Thence we ascend to the N.E., below the slopes of the Kleine 
Wanner (8355'), cross the Mittel-Joch into the HocfitDonnerkar, and reach the 
('2'/2-3 hrs.) summit. 

Passes. The shortest route to Innsbruck from the Knorr-Hiitte crosses 
the (1 hr.) Gatterl (6640*) and the (20 min.) Feldern-Jdchl (6700*) to the 
(lV2hr.) Tillfuss Alp in the Oaistal (p. 60); thence either over the Nieder- 
tnunde (6775') in 6 hrs. (with guide) or via Levtasch-Platzl (p. 60) in 4V3 hrs. 
to Telfs (p. 314). 

From Partenkirchen to Mitteswald via Elmac, 41/2-5 hrs., by a 
marked path, a much better route for pedestrians th;.n the highroad. 
From (l'/4 hr.) Vorder-Graseck (p. 50) we ascend the pastures for a short 
distance, and then turn to the right. After 20 min. we go straight on (not 
to the right to Mittel-Graseck) to (10 min.) Ninter-Graseck-^ 'A br., bridge 
over the Ferchenbach (previous bridges should be avoided) ; then for V4 hr. 
.straight through the wood, and down to (7 min.) Elmau (3320'; good inn, 
22 beds), whence a road leads past the Ferchensee and Lauiersee to (6 M.) 
Mittenwald (p. 59). — From Elmau to the Schachen (3V2 hrs.), see pp. 53, 60. 

The Walchensee (p. 67) is I9V2M. from Partenkirchen (motor car via 
Mittenwald 4 times daily in 21/4 hrs). The direct road diverges to the left at 
(7V2 M.) Klais (p. 59), and passes near the Barmsee (p. 68); 3 M. Kriin; 
9 31. the village of Walchen.iee (p. 67). The route via Eschenlofie (railway 
in 35 min. ; then on foot through the Eschental in 3V2-4 hrs. ; see p. 47) 
is shorter but less convenient. 

From Oabmisch to Lermoos, 15 M. (motor-omnibus in summer thrice 
daily in I3/4 hr., 4 Jl ; omn. twice daily in 3Vifhrs., 2 .if 60 pf. ; carr. 12,

(IOV2 M.) the frontier-inn at Griesen (p. 58), where we turn to the left (to 
the right the road to the Plansee, p. 58), cross the .Austrian frontier, and 
proceed via the (32/4 M.) old Ehrwalder Scfianze (2^55' ; Inn zur Schanz, bed 
1 K.) to (3 M.) Ehruald (p. 44) and (3 M.) Lermoos (p. 43). 

From the F:ibsee over the Torlen to Ehrwald, 3 hrs. (guide un- 
necessary). We follow the Frillen-See route (p. 52) for 2 min. and then 
(finger-post) ascend to the left by a marked path ; '/z hr. finger-post indicating 
the path (to the left) to the Wiener-Neustadter Hiitte (p. 54); V2 hr. a clear-

the Torlen (4955'; crucifix and shelter-hut) we obtain a fine view of the 
Zugspitze and of the Osterreichische Schneekar (p. 54), to the extreme 
right. Descent through wood to the (50 min.) Tiirl Inn and (V2 hr.) Ehr-

Ober-Ammergau (2745'), a large village with 1650 inhab., is 
celebrated for the Passion Plays performed here every tenth year 
(next in 1920). The theatre, with a stage open to the sky, is at 
the N. end of the village. Wood and ivory carving is the chief 
occupation of the inhabitants. A visit should be paid to the Lang 
Museum of ancient art-works made in the village; to the school of 
carving; and to the ancient Christmas Manger, with some figures 
over 200 years old, at Seb. Schauer's (House No. 4). — To the W.

Oler-Ammergau, see p. 56. The road to Linderhof (2'A2 hrs'. 
walk) ascends tlie broad Ammer-Tal and in 8/4 hr. unites with the 
road from Oberau (p. 48). 

From Oberau to Ober-Ammkrgau (B M.) and Linderhof (11 M.). The 
road leads to the W., passing the ('/? M.) [/n term berg Inn, and ascends, at 
fir-t in a wide sweep to the right, along the N. side of the wooded gorge 
of the G:essenbach (shr.rt-cuis for pedestrian>). At the bottom of the valley 
runs the .-teep old nai. Tht; upper end of the gorge is clo.'^ed by the 
Ettaler Berg, which the new road circumvents hy curving to the left (shf rt- 
cut by the old roal). — 4' •.• M. Ettal (2875'; £loseerinrtsc/-aft), a Benedictine 
convent founded by Emp. Louis the Bavarian in 13.^0, and rebuilt in 1744. 
The church, wi:h its inipo.-ing dome (236 ft. higli), was remodelled in the 
baroque style; it contains frescoe-^ by Knoller and a famous organ. The 
Ettaler Mandl (5360') is ascended here by a .'haiy path in 2' '2-8 hrs. (see 
above). A pa'h commanding fine views leads from the Ettaler Mandl to

through the verdant Graswang-Tal., or upper valley of the Amme«. 
To the left opens the wide Elmauer Gries (p. 58), above which 
peeps the Zug^pitze. Just beyond the (7 M.) forester's house of 
Linder (Restaurant, bed l-2'/2 ^U ; vehicle for hire) we cross a bridge 
to the right leading to (71/2 ^I-) the royal *Schlos8 Linderhof 
(3080'), erected and splendidly decorated in the rococo style by King 
Louis II. in 1869-78 (adra. from May 10th to Oct. 18th daily, 9-12

The Vestihttle (adm. in parties of 12 pers.) contains an equestrian statue 
of Louis XIV, after Bosio. On the First floor ia a series of finely fitted 
up rooms with paintings of French celebrities and events in the time 
of Louis XIV and Louis XV. — The extensive Gardens are embellished 
with fountains, statuary, etc., and contain the Monopteros, a small temple 
with a figure of Venus' (sood view), and the Orotto, with a subterranean 
lake, which can be illuminated with electric light. Near the grotto is the 
J/bomft A'io«5'?<«, richly gilded and decorated, with stalactite vaulting, ena- 
melled peacocks, etc. Behind the palace are the Cascades^ where the foun- 
lains play at noon and at U p.m. fur 1/4 br. — A visit to the palace and 
gardens, including the grotto and the kiosque, takes about 2 hrs. 

Linderhof is lre(iuentcd in winter by ski-runnerf. The feeding of the 
deer (often 100-200 head) between 3 and 4 p.m., about IV2 M. from tbe 
forester's bouse, is intore'^ting. The road to the Plansee is not kept open 
in winter, but is excellently adapted for skis. The route via tlie 'Schi'itzen- 
steig' to Hohenschwangau should be attempted in clear weather only. 

The road to Reutte now ascends gradually through the finely- 
wooded Ammer-Tal to the (II3/4 M.) Grenz-Brucke , or frontier- 
bridge, about 1/2 M. to the left of which (guide-post; the omn. waits 
Y2 tr.) is the Hunding-Hutte (3640'), a blockhouse in the old Ger- 
man style (comp. Wagner's opera of the 'Walkyrie'; adm. 50 pf. ; 
rfmts.). We then skirt the N. base of the Geierlcopf (709b'), travers- 
ing the wooded Ammerwald-Tal, and reach (I41/2M.) ihe*Hotel-Pens. 
Ammerwald (3576'; 140 beds at 1V2-2V:2) pe»s. 6^/2-7 Jf), whence 
the 'Schiitzensteig' (p. 41) leads to the right to (3V2 ^rs.) Hohen- 
schwangau. About 3 M. farther on the road emerges from the wood 
and reaches (I71/2M.) the dark-green Plansee (3190'), a fine sheet 
of water, 3 M. long by 2/3 M. broad and 245 ft. deep, enclosed by 
wooded mountains. On its bank is the Austrian Custom House, near 
which are a monument to King Max II. of Bavaria, and the *Plansee- 
Hotel or ForeUe (118 beds at 11/4-4, pens. 6-7 J/; lake-baths). 

A Steames plies on the Plansee in summer 5-6 tiiiie<» daily, from the

Fhom the Plansee to (iAHMiscH-PARTENKiucnEN, 15 M. (omnibiis in 
summer twice daily in 3 hrs. ; 'l^jijU). The road skirts the Plansee to its 
E. end (1 M.), crosses a rocky barrier, and descends in a wide curve on 
the other side to the (1 M.) Bavarian frontier (3040'). The old footpath, 
diverging to the left at stone 85, is a short-cut to thia point. The wooded 
Neidernadi-Tal is now traversed; 3/4 M. 'Bei den drei Wassern\ a broad 
mud-stream, with huge masses of detritus ; IV2 M. 'View of the Zugspitze. 
The road quits the wood V2 M. farther on, and reaches (V* M.) the high- 
iflad and the Bavarian custom-bouse at Griesen (2690'; inn at the forester'.s, 
8 beds). Hence to (TJ/o M.) Lermoos^ see p. 55; through the Elmauer Ories 
to Graswang (p. 57), with guide, in 3 hrs. ; to the Eibsee, see p. 52. — The 
Partenkirchen road descends the wooded Loisach-Tal, and crosses the 
Loisach (S^/* M.); 1 M. farther on the wood terminates. On the right rises 
the Waxensteiu, beyond it the Zugspitze. The road to the Hollental-Klamm 
(p. 51) and the Eibsee (p. 52) diverges to the right a little on this side 
of (274 M.) the Schmolz (p. 52), at the mouth of the Hammersbach (p. 51).

The road crosses the Rossrucken (3295'), affording a fine view of 
the Lechtal, with the Glimmspitze and Hochvogel in the background. 
We then descend the slope of the Tauem (p. 43), where the patli 
from the lower Stuiben Fall ( see above) joins the road at a stone 
with an inscription. The road afterwards proceeds via the small 
bath of Krekelmoos to (24</2 M.) Reutte (p. 42). From Reutte to

Mittenwald (2990'), the last Bavarian viUage (2000 inhab.), 
overshadowed by the precipitous Karwendelspitze , is a favourite 
summer-resort. The manufacture of violins and guitars, which are 
chiefly exported to England and America, forms the principal occu- 
pation of the inhabitants. A bronze statue of Mathias Klotz (d. 
1743), who introduced the violin-industry, by F. von Miller, was 
erected near the church in 1890. A tablet on one of the houses 
next the church commemorates a visit of Goethe (1786). Good sur- 
vey of the environs from the Kalvarienberg (8 min.).

We ascend a cart-track to the right by the custom-house, before reaching 
the Isar bridge, to the shooting-range, and proceed thence through wood, 
across the Austrian frontier, and past (25 min.) a chapel. We then descend 
gradually into the Leutasch-Tal, which at its mouth is a narrow gorge 
(see above), but soon expands into a grassy valley, bounded on the N. by 
the enormous precipices of the Wetterstein. In the background are the 
Oefelekopf, Gehrenspitze, and Hochmunde. After crossing the (V4 lir.) 
brook, we reach (8 min.) the Austrian custom-house (once forming a 
fortified barrier across the road). From this point a carriage-road, re- 
crossing to the left bank at (10 min.) the Leutasch- Miihle (3340'; inn; to 
the right is the Framosensteig^ descendintr from the Griinkopf, see above), 
leads to (10 min. more) Unter- Leutasch (3410'; Briicke, B. 50-80 /^.). Thence it 
continues via the Untere Gasse and the Ohere Oasse, where a road diverges 
to the left at the (l'/4 hr.) Kossl Inn for O/i hr.) Unter -Weidach (see

Vereins Alp (4615'; 3V2 hrs. ; guide 3'/2 Ji, unnecessary). The path 
crosses the Isar at the Hussel-Muhle (p. 6S) and ascends to the left to 
(.1 hr.) the Aschauer Chapel (3250'; rfmts. at the Aschaiier Aim), where it 
crosses the Seinxb'ich. It then mounts steeply to the right, and reaches a 
tolerable cart-road, running high up on the right side of the Seinsgraben, 
via the Ochsen Alp (^SBuO and the wild ravine of the Reissende Lahn, to 
the ('2V2 hrs.) Vereins Alp (4615'; plain accommodation), with a shooting- 
box of the Grand-Duke of Luxembourg. — A bridle-path leads hence via

(at the bottom of which we cross the bridge to the left, and reach a 
finger-post in 10 min.). either to the right to (3 hrs.) Voi'der-Riss, or to 
the left via the Fischbach Alp to (3 hrs.) Kriin (p. (38). — Fkom tuk Vek- 
Eiss Alp to thk Riss there are two routes (guide from Mittenwald 9 
or 11 ^U, not indispensable). One route leads through the densely-wooded 
Ferriiersbach-Tul to (I hr.) the Brandel Alp (3730*). Thence a good path, 
high up on the left side of the valley, leads to the Peindel Alp (3225'), 
where it descends to the right, and, after crossing the Rissbach. reaches 
(3 hrs.) the Oswald -Eutte (p. 72). The other route (with blue marks) 
descends to the right from the Vereins Alp along the Fermersbach to the 
(3/4 hr.) Jagd'^teig (bridge), then to the right through the Vordersbach- Au 
(4190') to ('2 hrs.) Ilinter-Riss (p. 72). 

The Westlicbe Karwendelspitze t78-22'-, 41/2 hrs.; guide, 6 Jt, not in- 
dispensable for e.xpert.s) cummands an imposing view. We cross the Isar 
to the E. of Mittenwald and follow the club-path through wood to the 
('2 hrs.) Karwendel-nutte (lySO"; no accommodation), whence a rocky path 
(wire-rope) ascends to the ('2'/2hrs.) summit. A descent (red marks) leads 
through the Kirchlekar to (5 hrs.) Scha-nitz in the Karwendel-Tal (p. 62); 
another (blue marks; difiicult) through the Dammkar to the Untere Kdlber 
Alp. — The ascent of the Wbmer (S125') should not be attempted except

a^ceuds, chiefly th.-o:igh wood via the Uu'ere and obere Kdlber Alp, to the 
(2V2-3 hrs.) Ilochland-HutU (5350'; no rfmts., 8 uiattrejses), whence a rather 
difficult climb over tiie Wornergriit brings us to (3 hr«.) the Wiirnerspilze, 
cojnmauding a very fine view. Another accent leads from the Larchet Alp 
in the Karwen^iel-Tal (p. 62) through the Grosslar (4V.' hrs., fatiguing). — 
The accents of the /fochkfcrspit:e (8145') and Tiifkarfpil-e (7770') are more 
difficult (guide ISA', f^r each). — *Sch6ttelkarspitze (6720'; 5'/-.: hrs.; for

Beyond Mittenwald the road (motor-car to Scharnitz, 70 pf, ; 
railway under construction) crosses the Isar (Leutasch-Klamm, see 
p. 60) and traverses the level bottom of the valley as far as the 
(15 M.) Defile of Scharnitz (8110' ), the boundary between Bavaria 
and Tyrol. (Walkers should follow the cart-track on the left bank 
of the Isar as far as Scharnitz.) During the Thirty Years' War 
Claudia de' Medici, widow of Archduke Leopold V., constructed 
here the strongly fortified Porta Claudia, which resisted the attacks 
both of the French and the Swedes. In 1805 it fell into the hands 
of the French (13,000 under Ney -against (300 Austrians), and was 
destroyed by tliem aad the Bavarians; extensive remains are still 
extant on the hillside beyond the Isar. The defenders were roni-

Motor Launch on the Kochelsee 12 times daily in summer from Bad 
Kocbel to the Grauer Bar, Kesselberg, Jocb, Raut, and Schlebdorf (35 min. ; 
50 pf.). 

Kochel (1980 ft.), a village with 1200 inhab., is separated from 
tlie lake by a hill. A bronze statue, by Kaindl, of Balthasar Maier, 
the 'Blacksmith of Kochel', the leader of the peasants in the in- 
surrection of 1705, was erected here in 1900. — The picturesque 
Kochelsee (1970'), 3^/4 M. long and 27-2 M. broad, is fed by the 
Loisach, and is bounded on the S. by the Jochberg, Herzogstand, and 
lleinifrarten. There is a line new promenade along the lake, 10 min. 
from Kochel. The pavilion near Bad Kochel affords a good view. 

At the K.W. end of the lake (3M.; omnibus in V2 It. ; motor launch, 
See above) lies flie pleasant village of Schlebdorf (Inn zum Herzogenstand ; 
Heimgai'ten). The Herzogttand (p. 67) may be ascended hence in 3'/2 brs. 
by a club-path. A fine view is afforded by the Weilberg (3215'; good ac- 
cninmoilalion at the forester's), which may be ascended from Schlebdorf 
via Kleinweil in V/-, hr., or from Penzberg (p. 65) via Lindelsdorf in 21/2 brs.

The Road to Mittenwalu (motor-omnibus see p. 65), leaving 
Bad Kochel ( see above) on the right, reaches the lake near (48 M.) the 
*U6tel AmSee (70 beds at lV'2-3, pens. 5-8 Jl\ pretty grounds and 
lake-baths) and skirts it, passing the *Hotel zum Grauen Biiren (85 
beds at 1 V2-3, pens. 5-7 ^; lake-baths), to the (48V2 M.) Kesselberg 
Inn (1/2 >1. to the S.W. is the *Alt-Joch Inn, prettily situated on the 
verge of the wood). The fine Kesselherg Road, constructed in 
1893-97, then ascends in easy windings to the (51 V2 M.) pass of the 
Kesselberg (2825'). To the right of the old road (shorter but steep ; 
tobogganing in winter) are the falls of the Kesselbach, along which

a path ascends. From the culniiiiating point, where the bridle- path 
to the Herzogstand diverges to the right ( see below), we obtain a view 
of the Karwendel and Wetterstein ranges in the distance, and, below 
us, of the beautiful, deep-blue *Walchen8ee (^'2630'), 41/4 M. long 
and 3 M. broad, surrounded by forests and mountains, the finest of 
the Bavarian lakes after the Konigs-See. At (521/0 M.) the N. end 
are the houses of Urfeld ( Post or Jager am See, 120 beds at 1^2-272) 
pens. 1-8 Jf ; Fischt-r am See, 120 beds at l'/-2-272> pens, from 6 J^ ;

ExcuEsioNS. — The ~Herzogstand (5680'j, a remarkably fine point of 
view, is ascended hence in 2Va-3 hrs. (guide unnecessary; horse 10 small 
one- seat vehicle as far as the hut i2 j/). From Urfeld a footpath ascends 
to the left, skirting the fence, to (1/4 hr.) the bridle-path from the Keaselberg 
Pass (see p. bG). In '/4 hr. more a pavilion, commanding a view of the 
Walchensee, is reached. On the opposite side of the path is a bench affording 
a survey of the Rochelsee and the plain. The path thence ascends in easy 
windings ; in Vz hp. we see to the right the Schlehdor/er Alpl, where the 
path from Schlehdorf issues (see p. 66), and in •/•.' br. more we reach the 
Herzdgstand Alp, at the foot of a large ravine descending from the summit. 
On the saddle, 1/2 br. farther ou, are the Ilerzogsland-JIavser (bllQf), belong- 
ing to the G. A. C. (=lnn with 76 beds at 2-3 J(, and 28 mattresses). Beyond 
the inn the path is nearly level to the foot of the highest peak, which 
is attained by zigzags in V2 hr. more. On the summit is a pavilion. Ad- 
mirable 'View of the mountains as far as the Oeztal glaciers, and of the 
plain with its numerous lakes (panorama 70 or 25 pf.). The Farrenherg- 
ito/>/ (5340* ; to min. from the Herzogstand-Hauser) commands a view of the 
central part of the lake, which is not visible from the top. The Martinskopf 
(5190'; '20 min.) is another good view-point. — A narrow arete, protected by 
a wire-rope at one point, but not advisable for persons subject to giddiness, 
connects the Herzogstand with the (IV4 hr.) Heimgarten (5876'), to the W., 
from which we may descend (with guide) to Sihle/idorf (^p. G6), to Ohlsludl 
(p. 47), or to Walchermee. — From the Ilerzogstand-Iliiuser a narrow path 
to the right, affording at first a view cf the Walchensee, and then leading 
through wood, descends to the hamlet of Walchensee in 2 hrs.

From Urfeld to Jeichenau and Tiih see p. Tl. 

The Mittenwald road skirts the W. bank of the lake to ( 3 M.) the 
hamlet of Walchensee. It is preferable, however, to cross the lake 
by boat to (IV2 ^ir-) Obernach (fares for 1, 2, 3, or 4 pers. 1^/o J/, 
31/2 -^, 4 Jf 80, 5 J/ 30 pf.). From the middle of the lake a fine 
view is enjoyed.

Bad Tolz (216o'), a town with 6000 inhab., prettily situated on 
the Isar, consists of the old town on the right bank and the water- 
ing-place of Krankenheil (see below) on the left bank. Many of 
the houses are frescoed with Biblical subjects. The War Monument 
for 1870-71, in the Markt-Strasse, bears a bronze statue of the im- 
perial general, Kasper Winzerer, of Tolz (d. 1642), whose tomb is 
in the handsome Parish Church (15th ceot. ; restored in 1906). The 
local Historical Museum (adm. Mon., Wed., & Frid. 4-6, 20 pf. ; at 
other times 50 pf.) is worth visiting. — The (' ^hr.j *Kaloarienbery 
(2320'; mountain-indicator) commands a fine survey of the Isar-Tal :

S.W. slope of the Blomberg, and contains natron and iodine. About 
1 M. from the Isar bridge is the ZoUhaus (Inn, with baths), on a hill 
a little short of which is the Alpenhaus aufdem Kogel (Inn, 15 beds 
at 1-2, pens. 5-8 Jif). The banks of the Isar, close to the town, are

Tegernsee (23^0'), a charmingly situated village (^1742 inhab.), 
attracts numerous visitors in summer and winter. Beautiful walks 
in the environs. The lange Schloss, formerly a Benedictine abbey, 
said to have been founded in 719, and suppressed in 1803, now 
belongs to Duchess Maria Josepha of Bavaria; the N. wing contains 
a brewery. Above the portal of the Church is an ancient relief in 
marble (1457), representing the princely founders of the abbey. 

Environs (numerous guide-posts). From the Hotel Steinmetz we as- 
cend the Larchenwald-Stras.^e, then turn to the right, and beyond Villa 
Waldruhe, at the beginning of the Larch Wood, ascend the steps to the 
left to (20 min.) the Pfliegelhof ('J765' \ restaurant), with a fine view (.still 
finer from the Pjliegeleck, 3525', V* ^t- bigher up, to the E.). — The path 
straight on beyond Villa Waldruhe, ascending through the larch forest, 
leads to the (20 rain.) Grosse Parapluie (2625'), whence we have a charm- 
ing view of the upper end of the lake ('Egeruer Winkel'). The Grosse 
Parapluie is reached by footpaths from various points on the Rottach 
road; the path beginning 8 min. from the S.E. angle of the Schloss, passes 
a monument to the poet Karl Stieler (1842-85). To the right of this route, 
3 min. below the Parapluie, a path leads to the (6 min.) Leeberger (restau- 
rant, 10 beds at IV2 Jl)i commanding a similar view to that from the 
Parapluie. 

From the station a cart-road leads in 40 min. to the Cafe Scherer 
(3150'); tine view from the terrace. We may return through the Alpbach- 
Tal (1/2 hr.). 

Bauer in der Au. We cross by boat (in '/4 hr., 50 pf.) or motor-launch 
to -46t^tn*cJ (Abwinkel Inn; Sapplkeller). Thence we may follow the road 
via Bitch, or (preferable) turn to the right at Q/4 hr.) the intersection 
with the Kaltenbrunn and Egern road, cross the Sollbach, and ascend by 
a pleasant forest-path, first on the right, then on the left bank, to (3/4 hr.) 
the Bauer in der Au (2r.9ry; rfmts.). A road leads hence via (IV2 hr.) 
the Schwarzpn/enn Alp (.3375') to (IV2 hr.) Bad Kreuth (p. 76). Ascent of

the S. to the (10 min.) Prinzeiiruhe (view) and thence across the Zeiselbacli^ 
finally following the Sollbach to C^ rain.) the road to Kaltenbrunn and 
Egern (p. 74). 

The Falls of the Rottach are situated in a pictnrcsqne ravine, 51/4 M. 
from Tegernsee. The road leads from (l'/2 M.) Rottach on the left bank 
of the Rottach (of footpath along the stream), passing (V* hr.) Hagrain 
(Hahn), to (1 hr.) Enter- Rottach (2565'; ckan inn); V"^ M. farther on a 
finger-post shows where the path descends to the right to the picturesque 
falls (SO-IOC in height); the path rejoins the road higher up. The Boden- 
schneid (5475') may he a.-cended from Enter-Uottach in 2 hrs., attractive

Riederstein (3956'), 1^4 hr. to the S.K. We may a<=cend either from 
(20 min.) the Pjliegelhof (p. 74) via the PJliegeleck in IV2 hr. (the longer 
but better route; finally by a 'Route de Calvaire' with 14 station.*); or 
from the Leeberger (p. 74) in I1/4 hr. (not recommended in wet weather). 
The Conspicuous chapel .stands on a precipitou- rock. It may t>e reached 
in VJti hr. also from the Schwaig/iof (p. 76) and from the Alpbach-Tal 
(see above). — From the Riederstein a marked path ascends to the E. 
along the crest of the hill to the (3/4 hr.) Baumgarten Alp (44S0'; rfmts.) 
and the (20 min.) Baumgartenschneid (4750'). whence an extensive pano- 
rama is obtained. A descent leads from the Alp to the Prinzcn - Weg 
(p. 81) and through the Alpbach-Tal to (2 hrs.) Tegernsee. 

The '^Hirschberg (5i80'; 31/2-4 hrs.) is easily reached. The ascent is 
best made from Scharling (p. 76), which may be reached either by motor- 
diligence from Tegernsee station (26 min.), or by motor-launch to Egern 
Ferry (8 min. J, and thence by road to (3 M.) Scharling. Here, or 1/2 M. 
before, we divertie to the right from the road, and follow a bridle - path 
(mule 10 J() through wood via the (1 Lr.) Holzpoint Alp (3705') to the 
{^l\ hr.) Ringberg-Satiel Thence we ascend the Kratzer (to the left) to the

or by a jiath leading to the left from the front of the bouse via the Fort- 
nert Alp to (2 his.) Enter- Rottach (p. 75) in the Ruttach-Tal. 

The Risserkogel (5995' ; 5'/j hrs , guide unnecessary for experts) is 
not difficult. From the (3 hrs.) Wallberg- Havs (p. 75) a marked path 
skirts the W. side of the Setzberg (5615') to the Setzberg Alp (5035') and 
crosses the ridge to the Grubereck (5485'), where our route is joined on 
the right by the path ascending from Kreuth. A aomewba*, steep climb 
to the left thence takes us to the summit (2i/2 hrs. ; open club-hut), which 
aflords a splendid view. To the N. ri.ses the Plankemtein (6790'; ascent 
difficult), at the foot of which are the Kotenstein and Plankenstein lakes.

The highroad from Tegerusee to the Achensee (fit for cyc- 
ling as far as Glashiitte) skirts the S.E. arm of the lake (opposite lies 
Egern, p. 74), passes the baths of Schwaighof (restaurant), crosses 
the Rottach, and leads throttgh (1^/4 M.) Rottach (p, 74). About 
IV4 M. farther on, at the Inn zur Weissach (well spoken of), it 
crosses the Weissach. 

Pedestrians save over V2 br. by taking the motor-launch (see p. 73) 
from Tegernsee to Egern Ferry, or 20 min by taking the ferry (5 pf.) 
across the S.K. arm of the lake from the ('/< br.) Kleine Parapluie to 
Egern (p. 71); the road on the other side reaches the highroad at (3/4 M.) 
the Weissach bridge. 

The road follows the pretty valley of the Weissach, via Reitrain 
(inn), Oberhof. and Pfbrn (pleasant footpaths also on both banks 
as far as Bad Kreuth). Near (5 M.) Scharling a footpath diverges 
to the right, passing the Point and rejoining the road before it 
reaches Dorf Kreuth (ascent of the Hirsehberg, see pp. 75, 77). The 
valley contracts near the village of (572 ^-1 f^reuth (2535'; Leh- 
mann), to the right of which rises the conical Leonhardstein (ATQb' -^ 
marked path in 2^/2 brs.). On the left is (3/4 M.) the prettily- 
situated * Inn zur Rainer Alpe (2580'; 30 beds at 1V2-3, pens. 
6-7V2 *^)i about 3/4 M. beyond which a road to the left diverges

of the Falepp, and then at a wooden hut descends to the stream and 
crosses it below the muuth of the Marchbach. At (1^4 hr.) the Erzherzog 
Johann- Klause (2705"; inn at the forester's) we cross the bridge to the left, 
and then either follow the new track througli the gorge of the Branden- 
herger Ache (for steady heads only), or ascend to the left past the Rumpf 
Alp, then descend to the Ache and cross to the right bank, and finally 
pass through the Kai-'er-Klamm to (2 hrs.) the Kaiser- Haut (2315'; inn

Reichenhall (_1540'j, a favourite watering-place on the Saalach 
(6500 inhab,), is picturesquely bounded on three sides by an amphi- 
theatre of mountains (from left to right: the Untersberg, Latten- 
Gebirge, Reiter-Alpe, Miilliierhorn, Ristfeichthorn, Sonntagshorn, 
Zwiesel, and Hochstauffen). 

From the Railway Station (PI. C, 1), opposite which is the new 
Centaur Fountain, the Bahnhof-Strasse leads to the S. to the Royal 
Kurgarten (PI. B, C, '3, 3), the rallying-point of visitors, with the 
Kurhaus^ the Oradier-Werk (evaporating- house) , a salt-water 
fountain, and the covered promenade and 'Trinkhalle' (band, see 
above). To the S.W. rises the Protestant Church (PI. B, 3), beside 
which is the Bismarck Fountain, by Th. Haf. To the E. of the Kur- 
garten is the Kurhaus Achselmannstein (p. 95), with a large garden 
and the Kurhaus colonnades (PI. C, S). — We proceed through the 
Ludwig-Strasse (PI. 6,3,4], with its numerous shops. In the 



Springs. REICHENHALL. I. Eoute 19. 97 

Turuer-Strasse, to the right, is the small Museum (PI. B, 4 ; open 
9- 12 & 2-5 on weekdays, 10-12 & 3-5 on Sun.j, with prehistoric 
and mediaeyal collections (adm. 25 c.) and a natural history collec- 
tion (adm. 25 c.) ; season-ticket 1 ^^. Behind the museum is the 
late-Gothic Church of St. Egidius (PI. B, 4). In the market-place, 
or Wittelsbacher-Platz (PI. B,4), is the Wittelsbach Fountain (1905). 
The large Salinen-Oebaude, or salt-work buildings (PI. B, 4, 5), in the 
Salinen-Strasse, contain in the centre the handsome Hauptbrunn- 
haus, or pump-house, and tlie springs, while on the right and left 
are the four 5urf/iaus«r ('boiling-houses', from 'sieden' ; comp. Engl, 
seethe, suds). Reichenhall is the central point of union of the four 
principal Bavarian salt-works, which are connected by conduits. 

The sources of the saline springs of Reichenhall, sixteen in number, 
are about SC below the surface of the soil, and are reached by a flight 
of 72 steps (shown every i/.' hr. from 9 12 and 3-6 daily; adm. 80 pf.). 
Two of them are so strongly impregnated (Karl-Theodor and Edelquelle, 
23V2 per cent) that they are at once conducted to the salt-pans. The 
water of the other springs is conducted to the Gradierhaus (p. 96), which 
is used exclusively for the purposes of the inhalation-cure. The purap- 
house cimtains the two huge wheels by which the pumps are worked. 
On the second floor is a Chapel in the Byzantine style, with stained-glass 
windows. In the court are two fountains adorned with statues of SS. 
Virgilius and Rupert. 

Quite to the S. of the town is the Parish Church of St. Nicholas 
(PI. A, 5), a beautifully restored editice in the Romanesque style, 
with frescoes by M. von Schwind. 

Near the station of Reichenhall- Kir«;hberg (p. 99), the hand- 
some Luitpold-BriJcke (PI. A, 5) crosses the Saalach to the *Kur' 
Hotel Bad Kirchberg (open May Ist-Oct. 1st, 100 beds at 2-4, B. 1, 
D. d^/2, S. 2, pens. 7-10 UJ?), with a shady garden. — At the bridge 
we may turn to the left and then ascend to the right to (10 min.) 
the Restauration am Schro/fen (view). 

Envikons. On the N. side of the town (about Vs M. from the rail, 
station) lies St. Zeno {Ho/wirt, with garden), once an Augustine mon- 
astery, of very ancient origin, but suppressed in 1803, and fitted up in 
1853 as a nunnery and school. (Pleasantest way to St. Zeno by the pro- 
menade at the foot of the Kirchholz, diverging to the right at the Maxi- 
miliansbad.) The church, originally Romanesque and recently restored, 
possesses a handsome portal of the 12th cent., an ancient font, and finely- 
carved choir-stalls. One of the pillars in the cloisters (12th cent.) bears 
an old marble relief of Charlemagne. — The Konigs-Weg, a winding path 
among the fine pines of the Kirchholz, begins behind the monastery and 
ascends gradually to ('/2 hr.j the Klosterho/ (iTdb' ; restaurant). Descent 
hence by the Eichen-AlUe and past the Moltke Oak to Reichenhall, 20 min. ; 
to Gross-Gmain, 20 minutes. 

Pleasant walk of 40 min. to O-ross-Omain. The route (footpath by 
the Tivoli caf^, or carriage-road past the Hotel Panorama and Langenfeld) 
crosses the hill, affording a line view. To the left, 5 min. higher (20 min. 
from Reichenhall) is the Schdne Aussicht, a villa near the terminus of the 
cable-railway (300 yds. long) ascending from the end of the Rinck-Str. 
(PI. D, 3) in 3 min. (30 pf. up, 20 pf. down). — The pleasant little village 
(1715'; Hdlel Untersberg, 100 beds at 1V4-3 Jf; Restaurant Kaiser Karl; 
Pens. Santa Maria or Hillebrand., with baths, 20 beds, pens. 3'/2-4 J() lies 
on the right bank of the Weissbach, just beyond the Austrian frontier.

most frequented leads strai-ht on (where it forks, we pass through the 
fence to the ri^ht) to (^A M.) Nonn (1590'; ^ Hotel - Restaurant Fuc/ts, with

Strailach- Weg leads to the N.E. from Nonn to the Oh hr.) Stauffenhriicke 
at Piding (p. 95), where we may cross the Saalach in order to return to 
(40 min.) Reichenhall by the Salzburg road. The path to the left, just 
beyond the Nonner Steg, leads to (l'/2 M.) Bad Kirchberg (p. 97). Other 
paths lead past the 'Eichenronder and throutih the Weitwiesen to (2^/i^l.) 
the Kaill (see below); via Nonn or direct from the Nonner Steg, past the 
villas of Stautlenhof and Buchenhof. to the (lV-2 M.) Poschen-Mulde (restau-

terg, etc. — The Padinger Alpe (2170') may be reached in IV4 hr. by a 
zigzag path to the right from the Buchenhof-, on the top is a restaurant 
(splendid view of the Reichenhall valley). Tobogganing in winter. — The 
Listsee (2050' I, a small lake embosomed among woods at the foot of the 
Zwiesel, is reached by ascending beyond the Buchenhof, chiefly through 
wood, passing the (l'/* hr. ; cart-road .so far) Cafi-Rettuurant Listsee. Return- 
route by Langacker to [}li hr.) Bad Kirchberg (p. 97). 

The Molkenbauer (1625'; Restaurant)., on the left bank of the Saalach 
(cart-road), reached in ','2 hr.. affords a good view of the Saalach-Tal. The 
path (generally in shade ; driving allowed up the valley only) farther on 
follows the left bank to (IV2 hr.) Frohnau, and crosses the bridge to 
(20 min.) Jettenberg (p. Ill); we return by the right bank. — From the 
0/4 hr.) Restaurant am Schroffen (p. 97) a zigzag path ascends through wood 
and through the Tevfelshohle, to (3/4 hr.) the Kirchberg- Kan zel (view of 
Reichenhall). We then retrace our steps through the grotto, and take 
the path to the left to the Hintere Aussidit (Latten-Gebirge, Saalach Valley, 
etc.). — Tlie Kugelbachbauer (2110'; »/* ^'O, a farm (rfmts.) in a hollow 
on the Miillnerhorn (450U'). reached by a path ascending to the left at the 
dairy-farm 1/4 M. beyond Bad Kirchberg, commands a pretty view. About 
halfway up, a little to the right, is the ReischelKlamm, a rocky cleft, spanned 
by a bridge. — To (472 M.) Jettenberg and the Staubfall, and via the 
Schwarzbachwacht to Ramsau or Hintersee, see p. Ill; the omnibuses to the 
Mauthausl (see below) stop at Jettenberg on the return-journey to allow 
pas.sengers to visit the Staubfall. — On the road about IV2 BI. short of 
Jettenberg is the Baumgartner Inn (1675')., whence the Hochschlegel (5J35'), 
in the Latten-Gebirge, mav be ascended in 4 hrs., via the RStelbach Alp

is the old chateau of Glaneck, behind which towers the pointed 
Hochstauffen (p. 99); on the left is the Schmittenstein (p. 126), 
resembling a castle. The line skirts the Aim Canal (cement-works) 
and reaches the station of (8 M.) St. Leonhard-Gartenau (1485';

the prettily-situated village of St. Leonhard. 

From St. Leonhard we may ascend by a marked path, via Qutratberg^

Berchtesgaden (1875'), a small town with 2830 inliab., occupies 
a cbarining situation and is a favourite resort both in summer and 
in winter. Down to 1803 it was the seat of an independent provostry, 
or ecclesiastical principality, the dominions of which were so moun- 
tainous and so limited in extent (165 sq.M.), that it was jestingly 
said to be as high as it was broad. The handsome old abbey is now 
a Royal Chateau. The Abbey Church, with a Romanesque nave and 
an elegant Gothic choir built about 1300, possesses a Romanesque 
bronze font, carved choir-stalls, and, in the cloisters, marble tombs 
of the Prince-Abbots of Berchtesgaden. In the midiTle of the town 
is the Post-Park with a barometer column and the reading-room 
(relief of the Berchtesgaden district by Franz Keil). The Luitpold- 
Hdin, to the S. of the town, in front of the royal villa, is embellished 
with a bronze Statue of Prince Luitpold, Regent of Bavaria. Fine 
view : to the left the Schwarzort, Uohe GoU, and Hohe Brett, in 
the background the Stulil-Gebirge and Schonfehlspitze, to the right 
the Kleine and Grosse Watzmann (between them the 'Watzmann- 
Kinder') and the IlochkaUer. — Near the station are the Salt Works. 
The Museum of Carving ( Schnitzer-Mustum) at the Schiessstatt- 
Briicke (p. 106) contains specimens of carving (open 8-1 and 
'2.30-7, free) and the collections of the local historical society 
(30 pf.). Opposite is the School of Carving (see above). 



Environs. BERCHTESGADEN. 7. Route 20. 103 

From the market-place the Bergwerks- Strasse descends to the 
Breitwiesen-Briicke across the Ache , whence the Bergwerks-Allee 
leads on the right bank in 20 min. to the Salt Mine (^1730'; dura- 
tion of visit l-li/4hr. ; small restaurant at the entrance). Local 
railway in 6 min., see p. 101. 

Tickets for the regular trips (daily, except at Whitsuntide, from 8.30- 
11.30 <t 2.30-5). 2 J( each; at other hours, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., in parties 
.tf 1-12, al.so 2 J/ each and 3 ^U extra. The mine is lighted by electricity. 
The temperature is low (50° Fahr.)-, warm clothes de.<:iraMe (the miners' 
costumes oOered to visitors are not always clean). The mine is entered 
on foot, numerous flights of steps a.scended, and an occasional descent ac- 
complished by means of wooden slides inclined at an angle of 45" or more. 
Visitors are preceded by a miner, who acts as a drag and prevents the risk 
of a concu.ssion at the bottom of the slide. The 'Salz-See', illuminated by 
electricity, is traversed in a boat. The party then passes through several 
other chambers and galleries, the most interesting of which is the huge 
Kaiser-Franz chamber, now deserted. 

Visitors may return by the (5 min.) Gollenbach Bridge, wheiK'e 
the Salzburg road trosses the Oembach (to the left is the Muler- 
hilgel, a huge boulder commanding a charming view) and ascends 
through the straggling suburb of Xonntal to the (1 M.) market- 
place of Berchtesgaden. 

Kx<cRsioss. Tlie view from the Lockstein (2235'; '/2 br.) is finest 
by evening-light. We turn to the right by the abl>ey-church and ascend the 
Doktorbery by the old Reichenhall road; at the former hospital we turn to 
the right, again keeping to the right where the path divides at the Villa 
Wein/eld, and proceeding through wood to the restaurant. — A few hund- 
red paces before the old hospital, opposite the Villa Scheifler, a path 
to the left skirts the precipitous Kdlberstein by the 'Solenleitung', or brine 
conduit, past the Pension I'rUerfiirsUmtein to the ('A hr.) Kalvai'ienbtrg (fine 
view), and proceeds thence, passing above the royal villa, to the new 
Reichenhall road. Before reaching the Kalvarienberg we may take the 
Fiirstenstein road, to the right, and ascend to (10 min.) the Pention Schloss 
Fiirttenttein (formerly a summer-resort nf the abbots). Hence we may 
proceed to the right by the Konigs-Weg (see below), or return to the left 
by the road to Berchtesgaden. An interesting detour from the latter route 
leads via the Cafe Belvedere (fine view). 

Aniither pleasant excursion may be made to (V* br.) the Aschauer 
Weiher (2135'), with swimming and other baths, by taking a footpath 
diverging (10 min.) to the right from the old Reichenhall road behind the old 
hospital on the Doktorberg (see above) and leading through meadows past 
the (74 hr ) prettily-situated Ca/^ Rostalm (2060') and through the Rottwald ; 
or by following the road as far as the (' < hr.) Ro.*fhdiixl (2185'), and then 
proceeding to the right through the Rostwald About 1/4 M. to the E is the 
Restaurant Dietfeldknser — A pleasant return-route from the Rosthausl to 
Berchtes/aden is offered by the Konigs-Weg. which extends for l'/^ M. along 
the wooded slopes of the Kalbcrstein, and joins the <>)d Reichenhall road 
at the hospital; or we may go on ^s far as the (1/2 hr.) Pension Unterfiirsten- 
stein (see above). Another alternative is to follow the H<'rniann-8teig z\on^ the 
edge of the wood, to the S. from the Rosthausl, via the Ohere Eienleiten-Hohe 
(2295'), the Stockerlehm, and Villa Flora to the new Reichenhall road and 
(1 hr.) Berchtesgaden. 

A very pleasant walk may be taken to Bischofswiesen (p, 100) by fol- 
lowing the new or old Reicheuhall road to the (3 M.) Neuicirt (1/4 M. farther

(hence to the Bischof?^vie^■en station, 35 min.). We may return by the pictur- 
esque Trittratn-Weg, through the liOrge of the Bischofswieser Ache, to (1 hr.) 
Berchtesgaden ; or we may ascend the slope of the Silbevg, to the S., via 
SiUsenbrunn to the (3j min.) 'Boschberg (2290'; rfmts.) for the sake of the 
beautiful view, and de.^cend via Dachllehen to the ('/•-' hr.) Gmund - Briicke

Boschberg via Vierradlehen to the (l'/4 hr.) Sijldenkopfl (p. 110) and (descent 
to the left.) to (V2 hr.) lltank (p. 110). 

The Schlosslbichl (3/4 hr. ; 2075'), an inn with a pretty view , at the 
mouth of the Gern- Tal^ is reached from Nonntal by the Hilgerberg. past 
the new hospital and the Rosenhof nursery ; or from the Dietfeldkascr 
past the Diel/eldhof in V4 br. ; in the vicinity are the Eizer-Schlossl and the 
Etzer-Miihle, with a waterfall. A road leads hence past the Restaurant and 
Pens. Kaiser Karl to (20 min.) the hamlet of Vorder-Gern (2390'; Jnn, plain), 
with the pilgrimage-church of Maria- em. About 1/4 M. above the church, 
near the ^eidenlehen . is a pavilion commanding a fine view. A path (marked) 
ascends to the right behind the school. From the (20 min.) fork the right 
briinch leads to the (8 min.) 'Marxen-IIo/ie (2565'), affording a splendid view of 
the Watzmann, Gtill, etc., and via Marxenlehen back to (1 hr.) Berchtesgaden, 
while the left branch leads to the (25 min.) Gasper I- Leh en, on the way to 
the Kneifelspit/e (p. 107). — At the foot of the sheer Untersberg (p. 1(8), 
72 hr. above Vorder-Gern, lies I/inter-6ern (2000'), whence a path (red marks) 
leads via the wooded ,Steinbichl (2685'), passing the Dilrrlehc», to the (3/4 hr.) 
There si enklause (p. 107). Hence we may return through the Almbach- Klamm 
(p. 107 •, to the Almbach-Klamm station, 1 hr.). 

Schdnau (1970-2130') is a scattered village on the plateau between the 
Kdnigsseer Ache and the Ramsauer Ache (pensions, see p. lOl). Charming 
views of the Hohe Giill, Brett, Kahlersberg, etc. A road leads from the 
Berchtesgaden railway- station past the chateau of Lvsfheim and (to the 
right at the tinger-post) to the (V4 hr.) Pension Panorama (2065') ; or we may 
follfiw the road straight on to the ('/2 hr.) Schweizer Pension (2000'), and 
(2 min.) the Kohlhiesl (cafe). Return hence via the Mooslehen to the Unter- 
stein road (see below ; I1/4 hr. to Berchtesgaden), or from the Pens. Panorama 
by the Stanger-Briicke to the Ramsau road (IV2 hr. to Berchtesgaden). 

To THE Konigs-Ske, electric railway 22 times daily in 18 min. 
(50, 30 pF.), starting 2 min. from the main railway-station. The 
line runs along the left bank of the Konigseer Ache to the Wemholz 
(see below), crosses to the right bank, and proceeds via (2 M.) 
Unterstein (see below) to (3 M.) Konigssee. 

The Road (carr., see p. 102; omnibus in V'^hr., 1 .//) crosses the Ache 
DPar the station tiy the Adelgnnden - Briicke, skirts ihe Wemholz, and then 
(20 min.) forks. The state-road, to the left, proceeds at the same level ; the 
district-road, to the right, runs via the Schwob- Briicke and past Unterstein 
<inn), with a chateau and park of Count Arco. The roads unite again about 
Vs M. from the lake. -— The footpath leading from the stntion up the Ache 
to (IV4 hr ) Konigssee has suffered from the construction of the railway 
and is now hardly to be recommended. 

The clear, dark-green **K6nigs-See (1976'), or Lake of St. Bar- 
tholomew^ 5 M. long and 1/2-I ^1- broad, is the gem of this district 
and the most beautiful lake in (Germany, vying in grandeur with 
those of Switzerland and Italy. Some of the surrounding mountains, 
which rise almost perpendicularly from the water, are 6560' in

height above the lake. At the N. end lies the village of Konigssee 
(Zum Konigssee. 60 beds at 1^/2-3 Jf ; Zum Sckiffmeister^ 40 beds 
at l^/o— iui^; Altes Seexcirtshaus, unpretending). 

A path on the y.E. bank of the lake, affording fine views, leads to the 
0/2 hr.) ifalerwinkel . — A splendid view of the entire lake is obtained from 
the CA hr.) Rahenwand (2985'). The path (red marks) ascends to the right 
at the Loteenstein, a large boulder, 4 min. to the N. of the landing-stage, 
and threads its way among rocky debris. 

Motor Launches 10 times dailv to ('/; hr.) St. Bartholoma (1 Jf) and to 
(3/4 hr.) the Sallet Alp (I Jl 30, there and back 2 UT 60 pf.). — Rowing 
Boats, recommended when time allows (to the Sallet Alp, I1/2 hr.), are 
obtained from the 'Schiffmeister'. Small boat with two rowers (1-4 pers.) 
to St. Bartholoma i'/c, to the Sallet Alp 7'/? J( ; with three rowers (7 pers.) 
V/i and 12 Jf. Regular trips round the lake are made 6 or 7 times daily 
in large covered boats (fare t<i the Sallet Alp and back IV2 J( each pers.). 
The mo.«t favourable light is in the early morning or late in the afternoon. 

Lakb Voyage. To the left, on a promontory, is the Villa Beust ; 
in the lake lies the islet of Christlieger, with a statue of St. John 
Nepomuk. The boat passes the Falkenstein , a rock with a cross 
commemorating the wreck of a boat with a party of pilgrims in 1742. 
The lake now becomes visible in its entire extent; in the back- 
ground rise the Sagereckwand, the Griinsee-Tauem^ and the Funten- 
see-Tauern^ and adjoining them on the right the Schonfeldspitze 
(p. 109). On the E. bank the Konigsbach (insignificant in July 
and AugQst) falls over a red cliff (about 2526') into the lake. 
A little farther on, at the deepest part of the lake (615'), a long, 
reverberating echo is awakened by a pistol tired in the direction of 
the Brentenictand (50 pf.). In the vicinity, on the E, bank, not 
far from the Kessel Fall, is a cavern on a level with the water, 
called the Kuchler Loch, from which a streamlet enters the lake 
(comp. p. 127). The boat touches at the Kessel, a wooded pro- 
montory on the E. bank, whence a good path ascends to the (10 min.) 
pretty waterfall of the Kesselbach (bridle-path to the Gotzen Alp, 
see p. 106). The boat now proceeds to the S.W. to St. Bartholoma, 
a green promontory, with a chapel and a hunting-chateau. At the 
restaurant kept by the forester good salmon-trout (Salmo salvelinus, 
Ger. Saibling) may be obtained. 

The Chapel of 8S. John and Paul, 3/4 W. from the inn, attracts nu- 
merous pilgrims on the festival of St. Bartholomew (24th Aug.), when the 
surrounding heights are lighted up with bou/ires. — The Eis-Kapelle, a 
kind of glacier in a wild gnlly between the Hachelwand and theWatzmann, 
2850* only above the sea-level, hardly merits a visit (there and back l'/2-2 
hrs., with guide; fatiguing path, not advisable in warm weather). 

At the S.W. end of the lake the Schrainbach is precipitated into 
it from a rocky gorge (ascent to the Steinerne Meer, see p. 109). The 
Sallet Alp, a poor pasture V2 M. in breadth and strewn with moss- 
grown rocks, with a chalet of the Duke of Meiningen, separates 
the Konigs-See from the beautiful **0ber8ee (2005'), a lake IV4 M. 
long, enclosed on three sides by lofty precipices of limestone. To 
the left rises the sheer Tahvand ; beyond it tower the Teufelshbmer 
(7745'), from which a brook descends over the Rbtwand in several

Southei'n Peak, or SchSnfeldspitze (8900"), from the central peak iu ^jt-i br., 
and the descent (not marked) to the (3 hrs.) Gries Alp (p. 110) in the 
Wimbach-Tal are suitable for experts only, with guide. 

The ascent nf the ^Hohe G611 (8275'), in 7 hrs. from Berchtesgaden (guide 
12 UIO5 is very interesting and not difficult for experienced climbers. A 
marked path ascends via (I1/2 br.) Uinteveck (p. 106) to the (IV2 br.) Ecker- 
Sattel (4«40'), and to the ri^bt to the (1 br.) Purtscheller-Haxu on the Ecker- 
first (5805'; Inn, 14 beds at 3 A'. 40 h. and 13 mattresses at 2 A'.); thence a 
somewhat steep path mounts over the Gollleiten to the (2'/-.'-3 hrs.) top. 
Magnificent view. — From the Eckersattel to Hallein or Golling, see 
pp. 126, 127. From the summit a tedious descent (no way-marks) leads 
via the Heiterer Lneg Pass, then under the Archenkdp/e, via the Brett- 
riedel (76S5') and the (2 hrs.) Ho/ie Brett (p. 103), and past the Jdger-Kreuz 
(7065'), to Mitlerkaser and (2 hrs.) Vurderbrand (p. 106). 

Excursions in the Steinerne Meer, the wild mountain-region to the 
S. of the Konigs-See, are fatiguing (paths indicated by red marks; guide, 
advisable in uncertain weather: to the Funtensee 9 UJf, via Griinsee \Q JI-, 
over the Steinerne Meer to Saalfelden 16 M). A path leads from St. Bar- 
tholoma (p. 105 •, to the Karlinger-Haus 4-4'/2 hrs.) on the margin of the lake 
to the Schraxnbach Fall (p. 1U5) and then ascends through wood to (IV2 hr.) 
the Unterlahner Alp (3265'). We then mo\int the steep Saugasse in numenais 
zigzags to (IV* br.) the deserted Oberlahner Alp (4595'). Here a path to 
Trischiibl ascends to the right (p. 110). Passing the GJaidkup/e on the right, 
we now ascend the Himmelstiege (to the left the path to the Sallet Alp, 
see below), and then descend a little to the (1''4 br.) K&rlinger-Haus (5315'; 
"Inn, 35 beds at 3ul? 40 Pf. and 20 mattresses at IJl), which lies 5 min. to 
the W. of the small Funten-.See (5250*). — Another path (5 hrs. ; provided 
with railings, wire-ropes, etc., and quite safe for adepts, though danger- 
ous for climbers inclined to dizziness, particularly on the descent of the 
Sagereckwand) leads from the Sallet Alp (p. 105) up the steep Sagereck-Wand, 
with a fine view of the Konigs-See and Obersee, to (2V2 hrs.) the deserted 
Sagereck Alp (4465'; spring) ; hence it ascends above the pretty Griinsee (48iO'; 
on the left) to the (2 hrs.) depression (5665') between the Glunkerer Kopf 
(5995') and the Simeisberg (61750, and then descends to the path from St. Bar- 
tholoma and to (1/2 br.) the Karlinger-Haus. — The Feld (.oo30'), an easy and 
interesting ascent, is reached from the Karlinger-Haus in I'/z hr. ; the 
Viehkogel (7075') in 2 hrs., the Schottmalhorn (7570') in 21/2 hrs., these two 
toilsome; the Funtensee -Tauern (Stuhlwand, S460'; S'/a hrs.. fatiguing but 
attractive); the >Schdnfeldspitze {Eochzink, 8700'; 4V2-5 hrs. ; difficult and re- 
quiring a steady head) via the Buchauer Scfuirte ; and the Hundstod (8510'; 
5-6 hrs. , laborious, see p. 110). — Several passes (Buchauer Scharte, Itam- 
seider ScJiarle. WeissbachlScharte, and Diesbach-Scharte) lead from the 
Funten-See to Saalfelden; the shortest (G hrs.) and most interesting is 
the Ramseider Scharte (6895'; 3-3V2 hrs. from the Funten-See), with the 
Riemann-Hatis (comp. p. 161). The path (red marks) skirts the N. bank 
of the Funten-See, at the E. end of which, at a rock called the 'Teufels- 
Miihle', the subterranean outlet of the lake may be heard, and then 
ascends to the desolate Steinerne Meer proper, with views of the Schon- 
feldspitze (see above). The descent to Saalfelden requires a steady head 
(3 hrs. ; guide desirable). 

From Berchtesgaden tlirough the Bamsaa to Reichenhall or to 
Ober-Weissbacli. 

To the bifurcation in the upper Ramsau 6 M., thence to Reichenhall 
IOV2 M., to Ober-Weissbach 12 M. — Via Ramsau to Hiniersee 8'/2 M., an 
interesting excursion (S'/-.' brs. on foot to Ramsau including the Wimbacb- 
Klamm, thence to the Hintersee IV4 br. ; easily managed in an afternoon 
by motor). — Motor-diligence and carriages, see p. 10i2.

The road follows the left bank of the Ache from the station to 
(3/4 M.) (rmiind-Brucke (railway -station, see p. 100], where it is 
joined on tlie right by the road descending from the Grand-Hotel; 
it here crosses the Bischofswieser Ache and then ascends through 
wood in tlie narrow valley of the liamsauer Ache. 2^2 ^1- Usank 
(1935'; *Hot. zum Watimann ^- Pens. Usank, 40 beds at 1-1 Vs) pens. 
5-7 .,//). At the pumping-station of the same name, V4 M. farther 
on, a brook descending about 400' works a pump by which the salt- 
water from the mines is forced up to the Soidenkopfl, 1200' higher, 
aiid via the Schwarzbachwacht to Rei'-henhall, a distance of I8Y2 ^^• 

A v>aM» ascends in steps and zigzags from llaank to the (I74 hr.) Sblden- 
kbpfl (3115'-, rfmts.), whence a good path with fine views leads alnng the 
brine-conduit to the (IV4 hr.) Zipfhdv^l (see below) and the (13/4 hr.) Schwar/,- 
liachwacht (p. 111). The Tote Mann (p. 107) may be ascended by a marked 
path from the Scildenkopll in I'/j hr. — From Berchtesgaden the best 
approach to the Siildenkopfl leads via the Boschberg (2V4 hrs.; p. 104). — 
From Usank via Schonau to the Konigs-iSee, l^/t hr. (p. 106). — Ascent of 
the *]y'atz/nann, see p. 108. 

The road now runs along the left bank of the foaming Ache 
tlirough the gorge of the Kniepass (short tunnel) ; to tlie left a grand 
view of the Watzmann ; before ns rises the broad Steinberg. The 
"^Ramsau is remarkably picturesque owing to the contrast of the 
luxuriant vegetation of the valley with the imposing and pictur- 
esquely shaped grey mountains. — 41/2 M. Finger-post indicating 
tlie path to the 'Windach-Klamm' and the 'Jagdschloss'. 

A path crossing the bridge ('2055'; restaurant) to the left, and ascending 
lo the right by the 'Trinkhalle% leads to the (V4 hr.) *Wimbach-Klamm. 
The clear blue water of the brook here Conns beautiful falls in its rocky 
ravine (about '/3 M. in length), into which the sun shines about noon. 

A visit to the upper Wimbach-Tal, to a point '/^ hr. beyond the 
.lagdschloss, or still better to the ('i^/^hrs.) Gries Alp, is recommended. 
A bridle-path leads from the upper end of the gorge, at first on the left, 
and then on the right bank of the brook through pine-wood, and after- 
wards traversing the broad mass of debris from which the stream issues, 
to (li/i hr.) the hunting-lodge of Wimbach (3080'; rfmts.). In l»/4 hr. more 
we reacli the Griex Alp (4355'), and enjoy a full survey of the imposing 
mountains at the head of the valley. — A track, hewn in part in the 
rocks, leads to the S. from this point to the (l'/2 hr.) shooting-box of 
Ti-ischiibl (oGO.j'; no accouimodation), whence we may ascend the Hirsch- 
teiese (6935'; 1 hr. ; guide 8 JS?), which atFords an admirable view of this 
wild region, including part of the Konigs-See. From Trischiibl we proceed 
via the deserted Sigeret Alp to (2 hrs.) the Obevlahner Alp (p. 109). — The 
Hundatod (S510') may be ascended from Trischubl through the Ilitndstod- 
Grube (3 hrs.; for experts only; guide for 2 days 14^/); better ascent from 
the Kiirlinger-Haus (p. 109). 

On the road, 2,3 jyi. above the finger-post (see above), is the 
* Wimbachklamm Inn (50 beds, pens. 5 Jf), and 1/3 ^1- l>eyond it 
the *lnn zum Hochkalter (30 beds at 1-1 V2) pens. 5 J^) and, to the 
right above, the Pens. Villa Steinberg (good). Then (2/4 M. ; 5^2 ^' 
from Berchtesgaden) Ramsau (2190'; Oberwirt, well spoken of). 

A pleasant walk (diverging to the right from the road at a guide-post 
near the Oberwirt) leads hence through wood to (I/2 hr.) the pilgrimage- 
church of Maria- Kunterw eg (2495'), and thence on to (V4 hr.) the Oi-osse 
Linde , whence we ascend to the right to (20 min.) the Zip/hdusl (3270'; 
inn) , on the brine conduit , I3/4 hr. from the .Schwarzbachwacht and 



to ReichenhaU. IIINTERSEE. Maps,pp.l04,154. — LIi.W. Ill 

11/4 lir. from the Soldenkopll (p. 110; the path leading straight on up the 
hill goes to the ToteMann, p. 107). — Another ronte leaves the ReichenhaU 
road at a guide-post beyond the point where the Hintersee road diverges, 
and ascends to the left to ("« hr.j the 'Wartstein (2905'), which affords a 
splendid view of the Hintersee, the Blaneis Glacier, etc. A little below 
is the Mugdalenen-Kapelle (2b20'), a rock grotto containing an altar. 
Descent to the Hintersee, •/* ^^r- — '^^^ Mordau Aim (390^3'), a pretty mountain 
valley at the foot of the Latten-Gebirge, may be ascended from tlie Tauben- 
see in IY4 hr. ; it commands a charming view of the Hintersee, Hochkalter. 
the Eeiter-Alpe, etc. — An attractive luutpath leads through wood from 
Ramsau to the Hintersee (see below), diverging to the left from the road 
at the Inn zum Hochkalter and crossing the boggy *' Oletscherqtiellen^ . Before 
reaching the Hintersee we join the new road. 

Beyond Kanisau (^2^3 M. ) the road divides, the branch to the 
flintersee and Ober-Weissbach (see below ) leadini^ to the left. The 
RoAU TO Reichbnhall (lOV-i M.) ascends straight on (right), past 
the small Taubenset (2870'), to the ('21/4 M.) Schwarzbachwacht 
(2905'1, a pump-house on the summit of the pass. About 74 ^^^ 
farther on is the small Inn zur Schwarzbachwacht (hence to the 
Traunsteiner Hiitte, via the Schweael Alp, 5 hrs., see p. 164). The 
road then descends into the deep wooded Schicarzbach-Tal, between 
the Reiter-ALpe on the left and the Latten-Gebiriie on the right, and 
(3 M.) crosses the Schwarzbacli. Below the (1 M.) Jettenberg pump- 
house (1825': rfmts.") we again cross the Schwarzbach, which forms 
a fine cascade (StauhfalL) hero and falls into the Saalach immediately 
below. [A footpath, diverging to the left before the bridge, leads 
under the latter to the fall. J To the left diverges the road to 
Schneizelreut (p. 165). Our road skirts the right bank of the Saalach, 
passing opposite Frohnau^ to (41/0 M. ) ReichenhaU (p. 95 j. 

The Road to Ober-Wbissbach (12 M.) crosses the Ache and 
gradually ascends its right bank. On the right is the old road, from 
which a red-marked path diverges to the left after about 100 yds. 
and leads through wood to the Hintersee. The new road affords 
tine views of the Reiter-Alpe, and at the (274 M. ) Hintersee- Kiause 
reaches the Hintersee (2590'; ferry to the Post or Gemsbock Inn, 
10 pf. ; shout I, which is 3/4 M. in length. About 2/4 M. farther on, 
*/4 M, from the upper end of the lake, are the forester's house of 
Hintersee (2605') and the Bavarian custom-house. Opposite is 
*Auzinger's Inn (pens. 4-472 ^/)- To the right, on the lake, are 
the *H6tel Post ^ Pens. WarMein (open May Ist-Nov. 1st, 63 beds 
at 172-2, pens. 5-67-2 «.//) aud the *H6t.-Pen3. Gemsbock (open May 
15th-0ct. 15th, 52 beds at 172-2, pens. 5-6 J^). Fine view of the 
lake; to the S. rises the Hochkalter, to the E. the Hohe GoU, which 
is reflected in the lake in the evening. 

ExccKSioNS from the Hintersee (guide, Jos. Maltan). To the Wartstein 
i^l-i hr.), see above. — A visit to the Blaueis, on the N. slope of the 
Hochkalter, the northernmost glacier in the German Alps, is fatiguing: 
to the Eitboden (6235') at the foot of the glacier S'^-A hrs. (guide 7 M): 
chamois are sometimes seen on this route. — Edelweisslahnerkopf (6410'), 
4hr3. (guide 6 Jf), fatiguing. — The Stadelhorn (Grosse Muhhturzhorn 7405'; 



112 J. R.20.-~Maps,pp.l04,154. HIRSCHBICHL. 

admirable view) may be climbed by adepts in 5 hrs. via the Haltgrube and 
the Wegkar (y:ui(le 8 Jt). Descent to the Traunsteiner IJutte (p. 164). — Hoch- 
kalter (8555'), through the Ofen-Tal in 5-6 hrs. (guide from Bercbtesgaden 
15 uK), for experts only. The ascent via the Blaueis ((j-7 br.s.; guide 20 J() 
is very diflicult and sometimes impossible. The ascent from the Wimbach- 
Tal via the lilaueis- Scharte (8145') is still more diflicult (two guides re- 
quired, 25 M each). 

Those who desire to proceed to Reichenhall from the Hintersee take 
the road to the left at the N. end of the lake, passing the Antenbichl 
on the W. side of the Wartslein (ascended in 25 min. ; see p. Ill), turn 
to the left again 10 min. farther on, and in 20 min. reach the Reichen- 
hall road below the Taubensee (p. 111). — Carriage and pair from tbe 
Hintersee to Ober- Weisbach , 25 Jl and driver's fee of 3 Jl. A trace-horse 
(15 jU) is necessary, otherwise the steep hill must be ascended on foot. 

The beautiful valley between the Hochkalter (left) and the Reiter- 
Alpe (right) is now ascended to the (6 M.) Hirschbichl (3785' ; 
Inn), with the Austrian custom-house of Mooswacht. 

The *Kammerlinghorn (8155'), ascended from the Hirschbichl in 4- 
I'/j hrs. (somewhat arduous ; guide, desirable, 5 Uif), is an admirable point 
of view (Steinerne Meer. Tauern, etc.). E.x;perts, with guide and ropes, may 
proceed hence to the (Va hr.) top of the Hochkammerlinghorn (8230'). ■ — The 
Hocheisapitze (8280'), difficult, is ascended in 4 hrs. from the Hirschbichl 
via tlie Mittereis Alp and the Hocheis Alp; the ascent from the Hochkammer- 
linghorn should be attempted by experts only (1 hr.). — To the W. of the 
Hirschbichl a path (with red marks) crosses the Kleine or Loferer Hirsch- 
bichl (4100'), which affords a very fine view, to Wildeiital and (l'/* hr.) 
>S<. Martin on the Lofer road (p. 163). 

The road ascends a few hundred paces farther to its highest 
point (3860'), and then rapidly descends into the Saalach-Tal. 
Before us rise the imposing Leoganyer Steinberge. About 3 M. 
from the Hirschbichl, near a saw-mill, a tinger-post indicates the 
way to the *Sei8enberg-Klainm, a profound and very narrow gorge, 
through which the Weissbach dashes over huge blocks of rock. At 
the (3/4 hr.) Binder-Miihle, at the lower end of the ravine, yre reach 
the Saalach valley and the Lofer road ; a road leads hence to (Y2 ^^^O 
Ober-Weissbach (2140'; *AuvogL), where we rejoin the road from 
tJie Hirschbichl. The Inn zur Frohnwies (bed 1-3 .fiT.) lies Vi ''^• 
to the S. (see p. 162). 

From Uber-Weisabach to Saalfelden (carr. in 2 hrs., iO K. and fee-, 
omnibus twice daily in summer in 2 hrs., 2 K.) and to Lofer, see R. 30. 
About 3/4 M. from Ober-Weissbach is the Lamprechtt-0/enloch (p. 162), 
and about 472 31. to the N. (carr. in 3/4 hr.) is the interesting Vorderkaser- 
Klamm (p. 162).

Salzburg (14*20'), the ancient Jiivatjum, was once the capital 
of the wealthiest and most powerful ecclesiastical principality in S. 
Germany, which was secularised in 1802 and converted into a tem- 
poral Electorate. It afterwards became Austrian, then Bavarian, 
and J5nally , in 1816, Austrian again, and is now the seat of an 
archbishop and of the government and law-courts of the district. 
Few German towns can compare with Salzburg for beauty of sit- 
uation. The town (40,000 inhab. ) lies on both banks ofi\\eSalzach., 
bounded by the abrupt castle-hill and the Monchsberg on the left 
bank, and by the Kaputinerberg on the right bank. Owing to fre- 
quent fires and to the building activity of Archbishop Wolf Dietrich 
(1587-1611) and other rulers, few mediaeval buildings have been 
left. The domed churches and other handsome buildings in the 
Italian style invest the town with the characteristic features of a 
sumptuous archiepiscopal residence of the 17th and 18th centuries. 
The shady promenades on the broad quays afford charming walks 
on both banks of the Salzach, from the Ludwig Victor-Briicke to 
the Karolinen-Brucke. 

The older part of the town is on the left bank of the Salzach, its 
central point being the Bbsidbnz-Platz (PI. E, 4), In the middle 



118 //. Route '21. SALZBURG. Cathedral. 

of which is tlie handsome Residenz-BrunnenoTHof-Brunnen (PI. 3), 
46' in height, executed in 1664 by Antonio Dario. Each of tlie 
sea-horses and figures of Atlas is hewn out of a single block of 
marble. At the summit a Triton spouts water from a horn. On 
the "W. side of the Platz rises the spacious Resideuz-Schloss, or 
Palace, erected in 1592-1724, and now partly occupied by the 
(irand-Duchess of Tuscany (adm. daily 11-1, in summer also 6-7, 
40 /i.; ceiling-paintings, tapestry, and furniture of the arcliiepis- 
copal era). Opposite to it is the Neugebaude (PI. 34; E, 3), begun 
in 1588, including the Government Buildings, Law Courts, and 
Post and Telegraph Offices (PI. 32) with a tower containing chimes 
(at 7 and 11 a.m. and 6p.m.). On the S. side is the '-'Cathedral. 
erected in 1614-34 by Solari in the Italian baroque style, with florid 
stucco-ornamentation. In the left aisle near the entrance is a font 
in bronze, dating from 1321, with a modern cover; high altar- 
pie^^e by Mascagni. The interesting treasury is shown on appli- 
cation at the sacristy in the right transept. — In the Dom-Platz 
rises a Column of the Virgin (Pi. 26), with allegorical figures in 
lead, by Hagenauer (1771). 

*Mozart's Statue (PL 28), in bronze, by Schxvanthaler, erected 
in 1842, adorns the Mozart-Platz (to the E.). The house in which the 
great composer (1756-91) was born, No. 9 Getreidegasse (PI. 27j, 
contains the interesting Mozart Museum on the third floor (MSS., 
portraits, piano, Mozart's skull, etc, ; adm. 1 K.'). 

On the S. side of the cathedral lies the Kapitel-Platz (Pl.E, 4), 
with the Kapitel-Schwemme (Tl. 4), a handsome marble horse-pond, 
with the inscription 'LeopoLDVs pkInCeps MeeXstrVXIt' (1732). 
On the E. side of the Platz is the Archiepiscopal Palace (PI, E, 4). 

In the S.W. corner of the Platz is the entrance to the ancient 
Cemetery of St. Peter (PL E, 4), adjoining the steep clifl" between tlie 
Monchsberg and the citadel. The late-Gothic Chapel of St. Margaret 
[ PL 16) in the middle, erected in 1483, restored in 1864, contains 
tombstones of the 15th century. In the arcades on the N. side is the 
Chapel of St. Veil, containing the tomb of Luther's friend Johann von 
Staupitz, who died in 1524 as abbot of the Benedictines in Salzburg. 
The Kreuz-Kapelle, in the S.W. angle, dates from the 12th century. 
A littlehigheris the Chapel of St. Egidius{St. Giles), whence rock- 
steps ascend to the Chapel of St. Gertrude and the Hermitage of 
St. Maximus, with vaults resembling catacombs and dating as far 
back as the 3rd century. The hermitage, the oldest Christian shrine 
in Salzburg, occupies the spot whence St. Maximus and his com- 
panions were, according to the legend, cast down by the Heruli in 
477. The keeper, who opens the closed chapels (fee 20/j.), lives 
in the first small house behind the vaults. — An archway leads to 
the court of the Benedictine Abbey of St. Peter (PL 6; D, E, 4), 
founded by St. Rupert in the 7th cent., though the present build- 
ings dale only from the 17-18th centuries. To the left is St. Peters- 



Seutor. SALZBURG. 11. Route -21. 119 

StifUkeUer (p. 116). To the right is the Chukch of St. Peter 
(PI. 18), a Romanesque edifice of 1131, badly restored in 1754. 
The original portal, with 13th cent, sculptures, has been preserved 
within the tower. The right (N.) aisle contains a poor monument 
to the composer Michael Haydn (d. 1806), brother of the more 
celebrated Joseph Haydn, and the 15th cent, tombstone of St. 
Rupert (d. 718). — To the left of the church is the entrance to the 
old cloisters. At this gate permission is obtained (generally at 
1 p.m.) to inspect the convent-library (^70,000 vols., numerous in- 
cunabula and ancient MSS.), the treasury, and the archives. 

In the vicinity is the Franciscan Church (PL 9; D, 4), of 
the 13th cent., with a Romanesque S. portal and a Gothic tower 
restored in 1866. The hexagonal choir borne by columns, with its 
net-work vaulting and its series of chapels, dates from the 15th cent- 
ury. In the Franciscan Monastery opposite a performance is given 
daily at 10.30. a.m. (ladies not admitted) on the 'Pansympliouicon', 
a n instrument invented by Father Singer, one of the monks (d . 1882). 

.\djoining are the stables of the former prince -bishops, now 
AW artillery-barrack, and the Summer Biding School (PI. 35; adra. 
'20 ft.), with three galleries hewn in the rock of the Monchsberg in 
1693. The Winter Riding School has a ceiling-painting of a round- 
about (date 1690). 

Un the N. side of the barracks in the Sigmund-Platz is a horse- 
ponil (PI. 31 ; D, 4), with a group of horse-tamers by Mandl (1695). 
Thence to the W. runs the *Neutor, a tunnel 150 yds. long, hewn 
in 1765-67 through the conglomerate rock (breccia) of the Monchs- 
berg, to the suburb of Riedenhurg. Over the entrance is a medallion 
of Archbp. Sigmund HI. . the constructor of the tunnel, with the 
inscription 'Te saxa loquuntur', and at the exit rises a statue of St. 
Sigismund, by Hagenauer. About 200 yds. to the left of the exit, 
in the Monchsberg, is a small stalactite cavern (lighted by electri- 
city; adni. 20/».). — In the Universitats-Platz rises the Kollegium- 
Kirche (PI. 22; D, 4), a handsome baroque edifice with a lofty 
dome, built in 1696-1707 from plans by Fischer von Erlach. 

On the Kranz-.losepli Quay i> the Museum Carolino-Augusteum

chateaux. 

The houses of the adjacent Gstdttengasse (PI. C, 3; lift to the 
Monchsberg, see below) cling to the side of the Monchsberg like 
swallows' nests, with rooms and cellars hewn in the conglomerate 
rock. The Klausentor was formerly the termination of this part of 
the town, lying between the hill and the river. The latter is now 
bordered by the broad Franz-Josef Quay, planted with trees. Be- 
yond the gate is the iron Franz- Karl-Brucke (foot-bridge). 

Above the town, on the S.E. point of the Monchsberg, rises 
the fortress of *Hohen-Salzburg (1780'), now reached in 2 min. by 
a Cable Railway, starting in the Festungsgasse, close to St. Peter's 
Cemetery (PI. E, 4; fare 60, up and down 80 h. ; admission to the 
fortress and the view-tower, incl. guide, 40 A.). Halfway up is the 
station Monchsberg, adjoining the restaurant Zur Kntz (approach to 
the Monchsberg, see below). Farther on the train threads a short 
tunnel below the wall of the fortress and reaches the upper station 
in the Hasengrahen (restaurant, with tine view). The View Tower 
(82' high ; platform 560' above the town) commands a splendid 
panorama. — The fortress, now used as barracks, was founded in 
1077 under Archbp. Gebhard and extended at different periods; the 
greater part of the present buildings and towers dates from 1496-1519. 
The Church of St. George in the castle-yard, erected in 1502, con- 
tains reliefs of the Twelve Apostles in red marble. On the exterior 
is a relief commemorating its founder Archbp. Leonhard (d. 1519). 
The Fnrsfenzimmer, restored in 1851, are worth inspection. The 
(ioLdene Stuhe contains a fine Gothic stove of 1501. 

The *M6nchsberg (1645'), a wooded hill about IV2 ^- "' 
length, bounding the town on the W., may be reached from the 
above-mentioned station of Monchsberg . or by means of an electric 
Lift (200'- fare 40 ft., dowu 20 ft., up and down 50 ft. ), ascending 
every 10 min. from Gstattengasse 13 (Pi. C, 3) to the top of the 
plateau [ResUturant , with frequent concerts). The View Tower 
(20 ft.), 360' above the Salzach, commands a splendid panorama, 
more picturesijue though less extensive than that from the fortress. 
The view of the town, overhung by the castle, is especially attrac- 
tive. — Shady paths lead hence to the S. to the Biirgervehrs'nller 
(restaurant), to the Franz Josephs-Hohe (PI, D,5), and to the Bichter- 
Hohe (1645'), a fine view-point, with a monument to the geographer 
Eduard Richter (d. 1905). 

The most direct footpath from the town to the Monclipberg is by a 
flight nf 117 steps ne.ir the Summer Riding' School (p. 110), then to the 
left by the footpaths to the Richter-Hohe, and finally to the right by 
apother flight of 183 steps to the Burgerwehrsdller (see above). An easy 



Mirabell-Schloss. SALZBURG. 11. Route 21. 121 

carriage-road leads from the suburb of Miilln, past the AtiguiUne Church 
(PI. 5; C. 2), to the electric lift and the St. Johann-Schlosschen (PI. B, C, 3). 
A third route leads from the suburb of Nonntal (Zum Roten Hahn) through 
the Scharten-Tor (PI. B, 5). 

The E. spur of the hill, below the fortress, is the Nonnberg 
(PI. E, F, 4), so called from a Benedictine nunnery situated here. 
The Gothic Convent Church (founded 1009. restored in the loth 
cent.^ possesses a fine winged altar with a stained-glass window of 
the 15th cent, behind it, a crypt with interesting columns, and 
in the tower ancient frescoes. The cloisters, dating from the end 
of the 11th cent., are the oldest now extant in Germany (no ad- 
mission). Charming view from the parapet. — Above the Karolinen- 
Briicke. on the bank of the Salzach. is the Kiinstlerhaus (PI. F, 4), 
for exhibitions of art (p. 117). 

To the S.W. of the suburb of Nonntal is the Cemetery (tramway 
station Kommunal-Friedhof), with an obelisk and several monuments of 
artistic interest. 

The Salzach is crossed in the middle of the town by the iron Franz- 
Josephs-Brucke or Stadt-Briicke (PI. D, 3), 300 ft. long and 36 ft. broad . 
In the 'Platzl", near the bridge, on theright bajikof the Salzach, No. 3, 
is the House of Paracelsus (PI. 30: D, 3), the celebrated physician 
and empiric (d. 1541), indicated by liis effigy. — In theMakart-Plat/. 
near the Platzl to the N.W., is the Theatre (PI. 36; D, 3), a hand- 
some roi'oco building by Fellner <t llellmer(lS93), opposite which is 
the house (PI. 20) occupied by Mozart's father in 1769-77. 

The Mirabell-Schloss (Pl.D,2l, erected in 1606 by Archbishop 
Wolf Dietrich, rebuilt after a fire in 1818, is now the property of 
the town. The staircase is adorned with sculptures by Kaph. Donncr 
(1726). The Mirabell-Schloss contains the natural history department 
of the Museum (p.ll9;adm. Sun. 10-1, Wed. 1-4, 40 /i.) and (to the 
right of the entrance) a permanent industrial exhibition (p. 117). 
Behind the Schloss lies the Mimhell Garden^ laid out in the old 
French fashion, with fountains, marble statues, and an aviary. — 
Adjoining Schloss Mirabell on the N. is the well-kept 5<adtparfc 
( PI. C, D, 2), containing a Kurhaus and Bath House (restaurant; con- 
certs, see p. 116), several monuments, and a Panorama (see p. 117). 
— Near the station is a tasteful marble statue of Empress Elisabeth 
(PI. I), 1), by E. Ifellmer (1900). 

On the right bank of the Salzach below the Stadt-Briicke extends 
the Elisabeth Quay (PI. C, D, 3, 2), with a number of villas and the 
Protestant Church (PI. 14), a Romanesque building by Goetz (1867). 
Above the Stadt-Briicke is the Gisela Quay (PI. E, F, 3, 4). with 
a monument to the stadtholder Count Sigismund Than (d. 1892), by 
Breuner. Beyond the Karolinen-Briicke is the Franz- Joseph - Park 
(PI. G, 4), the 'Prater' of Salzburg (swimming-baths, see p. 116 I. 

In the Linzergasse, on the right bank, about 200 paces from the 
Stadt-Briicke, a vaulted ar«hway under No. 14 ( PI. D, 3 ), on the 
light, is the entrance to the *Kapuzinerberg (2130'), The Capuchin

Monastery {¥1. 11 5 E, 3) is reached in 8 min. by a 'Route de 
Calvaire', with 225 steps, or by the Kapuziner-Stiege (Steingasse 9; 
also with steps). At the top visitors ring at the gate (2/j.1 and enter 
the park. On the left stands the '■ Mozart- Hduschen' (brought from 
Vienna to its present site), in which Mozart completed his 'Zauber- 
tl(")te' in 1791 (adm. 20 /t.). In front is a bronze bust of Mozart by 
E. Hellmer. We ascend hence through the wood by about 500 steps 
luore. After V4 ^r- ^ finger-post on the left indicates the way 
to the 'Aussicht nach Bayern, whence we survey the new town on 
the riglit bank and the railway-station in the foreground, to the right 
Maria-Plain, to the left Miilln, in the centre the Salzach stretching 
far into the plains of Bavaria, About 2 min. farther on another 
direction-post shows the way ( diverging from the straight path to the 
restaurant) to the (5 min.) ^Stadt-Aussicht'' (1985'), the finest point 
on the Kapuzinerberg (pavilion) : admirable *View of the town and 
fortress, the Hochstauffen, Sonntagshorn, Latten-Gebirge, Unters- 
berg, Sohonfeldspitze, Hohe Goll, Pass Lueg, and Tennen-Gebirge. 
In 5 min. more we reach the Franziszi-Schlossl, or Kapuzmer Schlbssl 
(2200'; restaurant). A back gate here (opened on request) gives on 
a path wliich descends to the N.E. to the (20 min.) Gablerbrau 
Restaurant (PI. G, 1), in the Schallmooser Hauptstrasse. 

Aigen, a chateau and park of Prince Schwarzenberg, at the foot 
of the Gaisberg, 33/4 M. to the S.E. of Salzburg, merits a visit (rail- 
way-station, see p. 125). At the entrance to the grounds (3/4 M. from 
the station) is the Park Hotel <S- Restaurant (R. 1.20-2, pens. 0-8 A"., 
good), with a shady terrace. Those who are pressed for time may 
obtain a guide here (60 h.). The Kanzet is the finest point. 

An easy bridle-path leads from Aigen lo the (I'/z hr.) Zistel Alp 
(p. 123l, passing throvigh the park, and then, by the waterfall, to the left, 
thrniigh the woods, to the Steinwandtner Farms, where it merges in a 
cart-road. Another route leads frojn the Kamel (see above) through fine 
woods to the hamlet of Oaisberg, whence a path ascends to the left. 

About 11/4 hr. above Aigen is Count Platz's chateau of St. Jakob am 
Thurn (ITOO*), an excellent point of view (Vzhr. from stat. Eltbethen, y. 12o). 
Tlie chateau is nccupicd by the cure (*l{cstaurant, with fine view). From 
the 'Aussicht', 5 min. from the chateaii, we enjoy a view of tlie moun- 
tains and the plain of the Salzach, most picturesquely grouped. The Ten- 
nen-Gebirge, the Hohe Goll, Watzmann, Hochkalter, TJntersherg, and Hoch- 
staullen are especially conspicuous. In the background lies Salzburg. 

The *Gai8berg (4220') is the finest point of view near Salz- 
burg. A Z.\HNRAi)BAHN, or raf k-aiid-piuion railway, ascetids in 
summer to the summit from Parsch (1410'), reached from Salzburg 
by railway (p. 125) in 7-8 min., or by steam-tramway in 15-20 min. 
(p. 117). The Hotel Post and Pern. Gaisbergbahn adjoin the station 
at Parsch ; farther up, to the right, are Dr. Breyer's Sanatorium and 
the Obere Kurhaus (p. 116). The ascent or descent by the railway, 
which is 23/4 M. in length, with a maximum gradient of 25:100, 
takes 35-47 min. (fares, up or down 3 K. 50 ft., return-ticket, valid 
for two days, Q K. ; last up train about 5 p.m.). The line ascends on 
the S.W. side of the hill, passing the station of Judenberg Alp

(2415'; inn), to (I3/4M.) the Zistel Alp (3270'; restaurant), and then 
mounts in a wide curve towards the E., through cuttings in the 
Tock, to the upper terminus (4190'). A little to the W. of the ter- 
minal station is the Hotel Gaisberg. open in summer only (R. 1.60- 
4 K., pens. 8 A'.), with a view-tower (20 h.). The *View from the 
(5 rain.) summit embraces the Salzburg Alps and the plain, in 
which seven lakes may be descried (comp. the annexed Panorama). 
The town of Salzburg is seen to advantage from the hotel. 

For pedestrians (3 hr3.) the best route (shadv in the morning) leads 
from Partch to (10 min.) the Obere Kurhaus (p." 122), at the N.W. foot 
of the hill. It then ascends to the left to the (1 hr.) Gersherg (or Zeis- 
herg) Alp (2615'; inn), and thence in zijrzags through wood on the N. side 
to the (i'/j hr.) summit. [A marked path leads from Gersherg to the 
Judenberg Alp in 40 minutes.] — From Parsch to the Ziitel Alp (see ahove) 
via the Judenberg Alp, on foot, l'/.- hr. ; thence to the top, 1 Jir. Route 
f.om Aigen to the Zistel Alp, see p. 122. 

The Nockstein (3410), a rocky eminence on the N. side of the Gais- 
berg, also repays a visit ('i'/ihrs.; marked path, guide unnecessary). We 
follow the Ischl road, past the Kapuzinerberg, to (3'/2 M.) Ouggental 
(Hatschek), whence the Lamberg-Steig, diverging to the right immediately 
behind the inn, a'^cends in easy windings to the (l'/4 hr.) summit (fine 
view). Another path ascends from the Gersberg Alp to the top of the 
Nockstein in 3/^ hr. 

The imperial chateau of Hellbrmm, 3 M. to the S. of Salzburg, 
may be reached either by the Berchtesgaden electric tramway (p. 1 17 ; 
station with restaurant outside the garden, to the W. ; large ^Gar- 
den- Restaurant below the castle], or from the Karolinen -Briicke 
via the Hellbrunner Allee, with its magnificent old trees (carriages, 
see p. 117). The garden is open to visitors; tickets for the interior 
of the chateau and the water- works 20 h. (automatic machine at 
the entrance). The chateau was built by Archbp. Marcus Sitticus in 
1613 and is adorned with frescoes by Mascagni and others (1615 |. 
There are also a mechanical theatre (with organ and 154 figures) 
and fountains in the taste of the ISth century. The flower-garden 
is adjoined by the Park (adm. free). Ascending the wooded hill 
to the right, we pass the Monat- Schlosschen (so called because 
built in a single month) and arrive at (1/4 hr.) the Stadt-Aussicht. 
commanding a view of Salzburg. Thence throujzh wood to (10 min. ) 
the Watzynann-Aussicht on the other side of the hill, from which 
thf Watzmann is seen to sireat advantage. On our way back we 
descend to the right, after 5 min., to the 'stone theatre', hewn in 
the ro.-k, and return by the drive, skirting the hill to the left. — 
At the station is a large relief-model of the Salzburg Alps (scale 
1:3000), showing the geological formation (adm. 40/i.). 

About I'/y M. to the S. of Hellbrunn (electric tramway, p. 117), is the 
Gothic chateau of Anif (Countess Sojiliie Moy), with a fine park (no ad- 
miFsion). — From Hellbrunn to the station f^i Hellbrunn- Glasenbach (p. 12 J). 
V2 hr. ; to Aigen (p. 122) a walk of about 50 min. by a sunnv road via the 
Sigmund-Thun Bridge and the Stanzinuhof (inn). 

To the S.W. of .-^alzburg (IV2 M.) is the chateau of Leopoldskron 
(comp. PI. ]», 1)^ with a fish-pond and Swimming Bath (p. 116 ; restaurant; 
rowing and sailing boats). From this point the extensive LeopoMtkrouer 
Moot stretches southwards to the base of the Untersberg. On the 'Moos-

Strassc', which traverses the moor to Glaneck, are a group of 200 houses 
inhabited by peat-cutters, and the 'Moos-Bader' or peat-baths (omnibus, 
see p. 116). The Ludwigshad is 1 M. from Leopoldskron, and the Marien- 
bad IV.' M. 

Fiirstenbrunn and Marble Quarries. From the station Grbdig (p. 100 ; 
electric-tramwav in 3/4 hr.) a path (marked) leads at the foot of the Unters- 
berf;, past the (l'/? M.) Rosittenicirt, V2 W. to the S. of the old castle of 
Glaneck to the (IV2 M.) Kugelmiihle Inn. Thence ascending by the 
falls of the Olan it leads to P/i M.) the Fiirstenbrunn (1950'), the excellent 
water of which (41° Fahr.) is now conducted to Salzburg. In the vicinity 
are the Quarries which yield the beautiful Untersberg marble (Inn zum 
Furstenbrunn). Visitors to the quarries requir.e a permit from the manager. 

To the N. (31/2 M.), on the ri^ht bank of the Salzach, rises the con- 
spicuous pilgrimage-church of Maria-Plain (1845'), erected in 1634. The 
terrace of the Plainwirt (good inn) commands a splendid view of Salzburg 
and the surrounding mountains (evening-light most advantageous). 

The Untersberg, the most conspicuous mountain in the environs of 
Salzburg, culminates in the Geiereck (5925'), the Salzburger Hoehthron 
(6080'), and the Berchtesgadener Hoehthron (6470'). The paths are indicated 
by red marks, so that experienced mountaineers may dispense with a guide 
in good weather (guides, Jos. Havtzinger, Andreas GriinbacJier, and Josef 
F^tarlinger at Salzburg; Jos. Kiilbel at Untersberghaus). — For the Salz- 
burger Ilochtliron (5'/'i-6 hrs.) a path leads from Grodig (see above) to the 
W to the (V2 hr.) Rosiitmwirt (see above), then to the S. through the wooded 
Rositten-Tal to (1 hr.) the Lower Rositten Alp (2655'; deserted), which we 
may also reach from Grcidig by a steep path over the Gvodiger Tori 
(3190'; 1^4 hr.). We then ascend to (IV2 hr.) the Upper Rositten Alp (4220'; 
also d'eserted). About 10 min. farther on is a finger-post pointing to the 
left to the (3/4 hr.) Schellenberger Sattel (4700'), whence we may descend 
(guide essential) to the left, via the Drachenloch and the Kienberg Alp., to 
the Rerchtesgaden road (to Schellenberg 3 hrs.). — From the above- 
mentioned finser-post the path to the right leads to a second way-post, 
pointing (right) via the Kolowrai- Sattel to the ('/•-' hr.) Kolowrat-Hohle 
(1560'), a cavern containing fantastic ice-formations; a flight of steps in 
liie rock, protected by railings, descends to the bottom of the cavern, 
which is 200 ft. deep. Proceeding to the left ('Nach den Gamslochern 
und Geiereck'), we reach (5 min.) a third finger-post indicating the position 
of the Gamslodter. a curious series of grottoes (fine view from two openings 
in the largest, the 'Halle'), which lie a few paces from the path. We now 
ascend to the right by the Dopplersteig. boldly hewn in the rocks of the 
Geiereck (345 vds. long; perfectlv safe but requiring a steady head), to 
the (I'/i hr. from the Upper Rositten Alp) Untersberg- Haus (541()'; Inn, 
open in winter also). We may thence ascend the Geiereck (5925'; iron 
cross at the top) in 1/2 hr. and proceed via the ridge, passing the Jung- 
fern- nriinnl., to the (25 min.) Salzburger Hoehthron (6O8O'), a magni- 
ficent point of view. — The descent from the Geiereck by the E. arete 
(Piirtscheller-Steig) to the Schellenberger Sattel (see above) requires an 
absolutely steady head. 

Another path to the top of the Geiereck leads from the Rosittenwirl 
(see above) to the S.W. through wood to (I'/z hr.) the Fivmian Alp (3250'; 
deserted); then up the Steinerne Stiege and past the Schafleck to the 
(21/2 hrs.) T'nter.sberg-Haus. — An interesting but fatiguing descent from 
the Salzburger Hoehthron leads via the (IV2 hr.) SchweigmuUer-Alpe (4895'), 
then to the left below the Sau.%ende Wandio the (IV2 hr.) Veitlbmch quarry 
and to (I hr.) Glaneck (?ee above). About 1/2 hr. after leaving the summit 
this route passes within 5 min. (to the right) of the Eiskeller., a large 
cave with ice-formations. — The ro\ite from the Salzburger Hoehthron to 
the Berchtesgadeiier Hoehthron {('jilO') by the ifittag-Scharle takes 3-3 V2 hrs., 
and is very trying (guide desirable); see p. 108.

Hallein (1450'). an old town (7000 inhab.) on both banks of the 
Salzach, is noted for its salt-works and frequented as a health resort. 
Pleasant Stadtpark ; saline baths, with inhaling room; swimming 
baths; small museum with Celtic and Roman antiquities. The salt 
works produce annually about 2000 tons of salt (adm. 40 h.\ 

The salt-mines on the Diirnberg (2625'; Sonne; Bergmannsireu), whence 
the brine is obtained, are easily reached from Hallein in 3/^ hr. on foot 
or by carriage (two-horse 8 K. and fee of 2 K.). The route ascends to the 
left at the (11/4 M.) Weg^-cheide Inn (p. 12G). The mode of extracting the 
salt from the earthy matter with which it is mingled is described at 
p. 143. About 2U0 miners are employed here. Those who have not yet 
explored a salt-mine may avail themselves of this opportunity, and expert.s 
will find several points of great interest. — Visitors are admitted to the 
mines daily (including Sun. and holidays): 1 person 6, two or more pers. 
each 3 K. In summer daily at 3-4 p.m. a cheap excursion is orfianized (2 A", 
each pers.). Gratuities are forbidden, and the proceeds are devoted to 
charitable purposes. Tickets are obtained at the entrance to the mines. 
The donning of mining-attire and the mode of 'travelling in the interior' 
are much the same as already described (p. 103). The vi.sit occupies 1 hr. 

ExccRSioNs from Hallein (guide, Joh. Kurz of Diirnberg). Pretty view 
from the RaspenhUhe (2935'), V2 br. from the Diirnberg (marked path). The 
*Kleine Barmstein (2750') commands a magnihceut view of the surrounding 
mountains and of the valley of the Salzach. A marked path leads from Hallein 
by Theresensiuhe and past the ruins of Diemdl to (IV2 hr.) the summit. 
The Orosse Barmstein (2790'), V* br. to the N.W. of the Kleine Barmstein, 
is less interesting. This expedition may be made also from Berchtesgaden 
(p. 107; 3 hrs.): from (2 hrs.) Zill (p. 126) we proceed to the left to 
(25 min.) the hamlet of Mehlweg (\iew), which lies about Vz br. from the 
top of the Kleine Barmstein. — A marked path leads to the N.W. from 
Mehlweg via the Lueg-Biihel to the (','2 hr.) top of the GoUchen (p. 100) and 
thence down tu (11/4 hr.) St. Leonhard (p. lOU).

The RoBsfeld, the N. spur of the Hohe Gcill, may be ascended in 3'/'2 hrs., 
by a steep path (way-inarks defective) leading via the Diirnberg and thmugh 
wood to the f2 hrsj Pechhdutl Inn (oGSO') and thence via the Ross/eld Alp 
(470;')'; rfints.) to the (I'A hr.) Iltnnenkdpji (5090'; splendid view); thence 
along the rid^e. leaving the Ahornhiiclisen (the highest summit, 52G5') to 
the left, and via the Upper Ah or n Alp (inn) to the (I'A hr.) Ecker-Sattel (p. 108). 

— The ascent of the Hohe G611 (8275') is not difliciilt for experts (fr. m 
Hallein T'/z hrs. ; guide 14 A'.). From the church of Durnbevg (p. 125) 
we ascend bv a marked path to the (2 hrs.) Truckeutann Alp and, skirting 
the K. .-^lope "of the Ro.-sfeld, via the DUrrfeichten Alp (4415'), to the (IV2 hr.) 
Ecker-Sattel and the (1 hr.) Furtscheller-Huus on the Eckerfirst (p. 109), '6 hrs. 
below the ti>p (comp. p. 127). 

The Schlenken (54U0') is easily ascended in 41/2 hrs. by a marked paJh 
via Waidach and Spumberg (Zillreut Inn); or from Hallein direct via Renger- 
herg (the route via Adnet, with marble-quarries, is Y* b""- longer). A marked 
path leads from the Schlenken via the Schneide to the (1 hr.) Schmittenstein 
(5555'), commanding a tine panorama. 

To Bekchtesgaden (7 M.), a pleasant road, recommended to walkers 
(steep at the beginning and end and not very suitable f(ir driving). The 
route pa.cses the church and leads to the (25min.) Wegscheid Inn (1975'; to 
the left, the route to the Diirnberg). The road here turns to the right, 
crosses the (V2 M.) Austrian frontier, and reaches the ('/4M.) Bavarian 
custom-house of Zill (2150'; Inn). We then traverse a hilly plateau (view 
of the Untersberg to the right), and finally descend rapidly through the 
wooded Nesseltal-Qraben to the (3 31.) Salzburg-Berchtesgaden road (p. JOO), 
reaching it near the station oi Reckenberg on the electric tramway (p. 100). 

— Another road runs from the Diirnberg via Oberau direct to (9 M.) Berchtes- 
gaden or to (9 M.) Hintereck (p. 1C6). 

To the Almbachstrub. Road through the Wiestal (or Almlal) to the 
(10 M.) Neuhdusl (inn), and thence by a new road, the highest point of 
which {Franz - Reyl - Steig) commands magniQcent views of the Ravine of 
the Slrubbach, flanked with huge precipices (to the Leopoldinenklause 1 hr.). 
Road thence to (IV2 M.) Faistenau (2580'; Post, well spoken of), 2 M. to the 
S. of which is the Hintersee (2250'; Ebner). To the E. of Faistenau an 
easy path leads over the (3 hrs.) Faistenauer Scha/berg (5110'; fine view) 
and through the Tiefbrunnau to (2V2 hrs.) Fuschl (p. 134). 

13 M. Vigaun. The train crosses the Taugelbach, which issues 
from a deep gorge, 3 M. to the E. From [16 M.) Kuc.hl (1525'; Neu- 
wirt), an old village with a Gothic church, a path leads to the right 
across the Salzach direct to the (274 M.) Schwarzbach Fall (see

Golling (1535'), a village with 800 inhabitants, is a favourite 
summer-resort. Above it rises an old castle (now occupied by the 
district authorities). The cemetery, adjoining the church, commands 
an admirable view. On the E. side is the (10 min.) Bachstatt, a 
spur of the Rabenstein, with pleasant grounds and fine points of 
view. — The route to the (21/4 M.) *Gollinger Wasserfall or 
Schwarzbach Fall cannot be mistaken (one-horse carr. for 1-2 pers. 
3, 3 pers. 4 K. and fee). We turn to the right from the station, 
cross the Salzach near the Gollinger Hof, and follow the road to the 
right in the direction of the church oi St. Nikolaus, on a hill, at the 
foot of which is the (1 1/2 M.) *n6tel Torren (R. from 80 h., pens.

4-6 A'.), with mineral baths and a charming view. Thence in about 
1 mill, more we reach the Gasthaus zum Amerikaner, and 6 min. 
beyond it the WasserfalL Inn, beside a mill. An easy path, protected 
by railings, leads along the wooded slope of the Kleine Gbll to the 
(^74 ^r.) spot (^1900') where the Schxrarzbach issues in a copious 
stream from the rooks and is precipitated through an aperture over 
a clitf 200' high, in two vast leaps. The Schwarzbach is tabled to 
be one of the outlets of the Kijnigs-See (p. 105), which lies about 
9 M. to the J^.W. and 75' higher. 

The *Sal2ach-0efen, 2 M. to the S. of Golling. on the W. side 
of the highroad to Werfen (one-horse carr. in '20 min., 3-4 K.; 
halfway is the Leopold Hofer Inn) , are curious and picturesque 
ravines, tilled with huge blocks of rock heaped together in wild 
confusion, between which the SaUach has forced its passage for 
upwards of a mile. At the N. and S. entrances to the Oefen are 
finger-posts indicating the approach, and not 1/4 ^^- apart, whilst 
the walk through the rocky gorge occupies 1/2 b'^- ^ V'^^^ leads 
along the left bank of the Salzach to a point of view ('der Oefen 
Ende') commanding the best survey of the Oefen as well as a glimpse 
of the Salzach-Tal, and to the (1/4 hr.) Kroaten-Hohle, a fortified 
cave on the slope of the Hagen-Gebirge, at the entrance of the Pass 
Laeg. — At the S. entrance to the Oefen is the Maria Brunneck 
Chapel (see below). 

The *Pas8 Lueg, a grand ravine of the Salzach, 6 M. in length, 
between the Tennen-Gebirge on the E. and the Hagtn-Gebirge on the 
W., forms a fitting portal from the lower to the higher Alps. (It 
should be traversed on foot or in an open carriage as far as Sulzau, 
see below; one-horse carr. 9 K.) The pass is frequently men-

ridge of conglomerate extends halfway across the river towards the left 
bank, over and through which the clear green Traun is precipitated 
from a height of 43'. The fall is best seen from the bridge, and from 
the projecting rock below the bridge. On the right bank of the river is a 
Canal ('Der gute Fall'), 400 yds. in length, constructed in 1573, with a fall 
of 50*, which carries the salt-barges past the waterfall (in about 1 min.). 
For a fee of 40-60 h. one of the miller's men closes this canal and so 
causes the whole of the water to be precipitated over the rocks. The 
descent from Gmunden to the falls by one of the salt-barges (fare 3 K.) 
is a pleasant trip, quite unattended with danger; the start is usually 
made on Thurs. or Frid. at 9 a.m. and on Sat. at 7.30 a.m. and the fall

The Attersee, or Kammersee (1525'), 12 V2 M- i" lengtli, 1-2 M. in 
breadth, and 660 ft. in depth, the largest lake in Austria (18 sq. M.), 
is bounded by picturesque mountains at the S. end. To the right

the S.E. is the broad range of the Hollen-Gebirge, stretching towards 
the Traunsee.

the E. bank to Weyregg (Post), a village on the site of an ancient 
Roman settlement, and then crosses the lake diagonally to Attersee

loUow the red marks to (I'/s-Q hrs.) the Eisenauer Alp (3350'; rfmta.)- Hence 
in 1 hr. to the Suissen Alp, above the picturesque little Griinsee (almost dry 
in midsummer) ; we then ascend again for about 5 min. and skirt the rocks 
of the Schafberg to the right by an almost level path for 25 min. (fine view 
of the Attersee and Mondsee). Finally, beyond the Kaiterquelle^ the path 
ascends in zigzags and by steps cut in the rock (provided with a railing, 
and quite safe) to the Himmelsp forte, a passage hewn through the rocks of 
the Scha/loch, on emerging from which we have a magnificent view of the 
Dachatein and Hochkonig, previously concealed. A few paces farther on 
we reach the (V2 hr.) Schafberg Hotel (p. 136). — An interesting route (steady 
head essential) leads from the Suis.-^eu Alp (see above) past the Griin-See 
and over the Schafberg- Gatterl to the (1 hr.) Miinich-See (4140') and thence 
by the 'Purtscheller-Steig' (rope) to the (8/4 hr.) Wetterloch (p. 136) and the 
C/j hr.) Schafberg Hotel. From the Miinich-See a marked path leads via 
the Aurissen Alp and through the Dietlbach-Tal to (li/-2 hr.) St. Wolfgang. 
— Those ascending the Schafberg from the Mondsee do not need to go the 
whole way to Unterach, but follow a path ascending direct from the lake, 
which joins the Unterach route in '/'^ hr. 

Between "Unterach and the Mondsee (electiic tramway, seep. 130) 
we may follow the road on the left bank of the Ache via the Miihl- 
liilner-BruckednA.Au, or we may take the heautiful shady path on the 
ripht bank, -which passes 06cr-jBurgfat^(InnzurWiesenau, well spoken

ot till! Mondsee (1570'). The Schafberg here rises abruptly from the 
lake; opposite us to the W. is the Drachenstein, and beyond it the 
Schober. The lake is 7M. long and 1-1 1/4 M. broad, and is bounded 
on the N. by wooded hills of moderate height. A road skirts the S. 
bank of the lake from See to (li/4hr.) Scharfling, piercing the Kien- 
bergwand by means of a short tunnel. The steamboat calls at Wald- 
hotet Kreuzstein (R. 3-5 K.) at the foot of the Kienhergwand (S. 
bank; to the Altershach Waterfall^ 8 min.), and at Pic//i (*Auhof, R. 
1 .'20-2.40 ^.), situated in a small bay on the N. bank, and then crosses 
to Scharfling [Hotel Wesenauer, R.'2-3^.), on the S. hank, 1/2 M. 
from the railway- station of the same name (p. 134). 

Ascent of the Schafberg (p. 135 ; 4 hrs. ; guide 8 A'., unnecessary). 
We follow the St. Gilgen road (p. 134) to the S., ascending through wood 
jiast the small Eghee. After 1 M. (finger-post) we take the good bridle- 
path to the left, which leads mostly through wood, j)&st the Elisabeth- Hdhe 
(pretty view of the Mondsee), to the (^4 hr.) Kessel Alp (rfmts.), where 
we have a view of the Krottensee and St. Gilgen. In about 1 hr. more 
the path emerges from the wood, and skirts the mountain-slope to the 
right to the (»/•.- hr.) Schafberg Alp (p. 136). 

Beyond Scharfling the steamer hugs the S. shore, along which 
runs the Salzkammergut railway. After calling at Plomherg (^Hotel, 
with garden on the lake, R. 1 K. 60 /t.), which is also a railway-station 
(see p. 134), it steers obliquely across the lake. Retrospect (E.) of

the N. by the Schafberg, while on the S.. beyond the wooded banks, 
rise the Zwolferhorn, Konigsberghom, Hohe Zinken, Sparber, and 
other picturesquely shaped mountains. A Stbambo.vt (preferable 
to the railway if time allows) plies in summer (1 times daily, in

The boat touches first at Furberg (p. 1341 , on the E. bank , to 
the E. of which is the Schtffel Monument (p. 134). It then steers 
across the lake to Lueg (*Hotel), at the railway-station of that name 
(see below). On the face of the Falkenstein, to the N., in red letters 
a yard high, is an inscription in honour of the poet Victor von 
Scheffel. After halting at Falkenstein - Ried the boat passes the

ing in spring only, when the brook, which rushes in a subterranean course 
through the cavern, is swollen by melting snoAv (guide and torches requisite). 

The line, relaid at a higher level after the floods of 1897, runs 
through the wild and narrow Koppen - TaL. It passes through a 
tunnel and crosses the foaming Traun three times. The gorge ex-

^Valkers should follow the Rebenburg Promenade along the Traun 
( 1 hr.) or the shaded path via the Cafe' Loitzl and the Cramer Pro- 
menade (l'/-.'hx,). About •^/4 M. short of the Klause stands the 
*HoUl BeUerue (U, 3-6, pens. 9-14 AT.), with a terrace overlooking 
the lake. A steamboat plies 6 times daily from the Klause via 
Schraml (see below) to Gijssl. at the head of the lake (^o ^r. ; fare 
90 A.). The road runs along the N. hank of the lake, passing the 
Stockl Inn, to the {^U y^)* Hotel Schraml (R. 2-5 K., with salt and

plain formed by the alluvial deposits of the Waldbach^ with the Salt 
Works. The Kalvarienberg ('Vesper-Blick'), 10 min. higher, com- 
mands a good view. 

ExcDRsioNS. — The Rudolfs-Turm C2800'), occupied by the manager of 
the mine, is reached by a good zigzag path in 50 min. from the market- 
place. An inscription by a bench, halfway up, dated 1504, records that the 
mines were visited in that year by Emp. 3Iaximilian. The bench in front 
affords a One view of the lake. Excavations made since 1846 have bmu^'ht 
to light an ancient burial-ground in the vicinity. The graves (of which 
about 2000 have been opened) are probably those of Celtic salt-miners of 
the 3rd or 4th cent. B. ('. Numerous relics, especially bronze ornamouts, 
have been discovered. The mfi.st important of these are now in the Im- 
perial Museum at Vienna and in the Museum Francisco- Carolinum at 
Linz ; but there are also a few in the Hallstatt Museum (see above). — Tlio

to the right by a somewhat steep path beyond the Roman Catholic cemetery 
(20 min.); or' we may start from the Rudolfs-Turm. 

The Waldbach-Strub ('2060'), in the wooded Ech<rn-rnl, 1 hr. to the 
.S.W. of Hallstatt, is precipitated in three leaps from a lieisiht of 305' throuy,h 
a cleft in the rocks. The path leads to the right from the Lahn (see above), 
passes (V-2 hr.) Croatia's Inn and the (10 min.) Jnn zur Gn'inen Wiese., and 
finally ascend.s to the right to C^O min.) a point of view opposite the fall. 
The Schleier Fall, of about eijual height, descends into the same abyss. — 
A picturesque path ('Malerweg') leads along the right bank of the Wald- 
bach from Croaito's Inn (see above) to the Lahn and back to Hallstatt. 

A road leads from the Lahn along the S. bank of the lake through 
the Hirsehau, passing the Hirschbrunn and the Kettel (two intermittent 
springs), to Winkl and fl hr.) Obevtrann (p. 145). About 1 hr. from the 
Lahn (path diverging to the left from the route to the Kalvarien-Berg)

the Klaus Alp., Landner Alp, and the Eadltal Alp to the Anger- Iliitlen and 
Beencuvzen-Sattel, between the Angerkogl and the Beerwurzenkogl. Thence 
we descend to the Nasstal-Hiittf.n and the saddle between the Brettkogel 
and Hofner, and. more steeply, through the Knglgaste to the lake (p. 151). 

Stein^aben-Schneid (or Schneidkogel, 5055'), path (red marks) via the

via St. Agata and the Niedei-e Sarsfein Alp (inn in summer) in 4V2 trs. 
(■easiest route), or from Aussee (p. 146) in 41/2 hrs. 

Krippenstein (69(J5'-, 5 hrs.; sjuide 10 A'.), an interesting accent. We 
ftrry to Winkl and ascend steeply I0 the iMedere Schajeck Alp and thr 
(■2V4 hrs.) Hohe Scha/eck Alp (4430'). We then proceed through the Krippcn- 
gaise to the (3/4 l»r.) Krippenbrunnen (5085') and the (8/4 hr.) Krippened: 
(5700'), turn sharply to the left, round the Niedere Krippensfeiji, and reach 
(IV2 hr.) the summit of the Hohe Krippenstein, which affords an excellent 
survey of the Hallstatter See and the Dachstein range. About 10 min. to 
the W. of the Krippeneck lies the Gjaid Alp (5S60'), whence a route leads 
via the Zirhengrvhe and the Taiibenkar to the (2^4 hrs.) Simoiuj-IIHIte (see 
below). — To the S. of the Gjaid Alp a path marked with stakes crosses 
the limestone plateau 'Am Stein' and the Feister - Schnvte (7250') to the 
Uamsau (see p. 569-, to Schladming, 6V2-7 hrs., guide 20 /T.).

The ■=Dachstein(9815'). the highest peak but one of the N. Limestone Alps 
(Parseier Spitze 9965', Zugspitze 9720'), is usually ascended from Hallstatt 
(§-91/2 hrs. ; trying; guide 20, with descent to Gosau 24, to the Au'^tria-Hiitte 
or IIofpiirgl-Hiitte 26 A'.). Those who are not vigorous enough to make 
the whole ascent should, at least, go to the Simony Hut, 5V2-6 hrs. (guide 
8 A"., overnight 13 K.). A bridle-path ('Kaiser Franz Josefs Reitweg') ascends 
from Croattos Inn through the Echet-n-Tal to the (IV2 hr.) AUe Herd; it 
(•ends to the left here, passes the Tropfwand and the (lV2hr.) Tiergarten- 
firvnnen (rfmts.), and proceeds through the Tiergarten to the (^/i hr.) Tier- 
garten-Hohe. We then ascend to the right, leaving the Wies Alp and the 
Ochsenwies Alp to the left, to the (IV2 hr.) Ochsenwies-Hofie (6520* -, view of 
the Dachstein) and through the Wildkar to the (1 hr.) Simony Hut (7220*; 
Inn, bed 4 A". 80, mattress IK. 40 A.), on the margin of the Karls-Eisfeld 
or Hallstatt Olacier. From the hut (steady head henceforth necessary) 
we cross the glacier to the (2-2V2 hrs.) arete (8860*; fme view from the 
'Dachsteinwarte'), ascend to the right (rope and iron pegs) to the top of 
the Shoulder, proceed high above the 'Randklaft' (large crevasse) to the foot 
of the peak, and finally mount to the (I-IV2 hr.) summit of the Hohe Dach- 
stein. Superb view, extending to the Schneeberg, Terglou. Canin, Tauern, 
Stubaier Ferner, and the Bohemian Forest. — Descent to Gosau., see p. 151;

turns to the W., passes under the Gosau-Zwang (an aqueduct, 
146 yds. long and 140' high at its highest part, by which the salt- 
water conduit crosses the valley ), and ascends the narrow wooded 
ravine of the Gosau-Bach. Near the long village of (8Y2 M.) Gosau 
(2390'; *BTandwirt, 45 R. at 1 /ST. 20-3, pens, b-7 K.; Kirchenwirt)

S.E., in the background, towers the lofty Dachstein with the two 
Gosau Glaciers; to the left the Hohe Kreuz, to the right the Tor- 
stein and Donnerkogel (a splendid picture, best by evening-light), 
liowing to the S.E. end of the lake (V4 hr. ; there and back 1 K. 20 /». ), 
or walking round by the S. bank (20 min.), we next ascend by a 
steep and stony path, passing the Gcsaulacke ('tarn'; 3180'), to the 
(2 hrs.) light- green *Hintere Gosau-See (3790'), about half the size 
of the Vordere See, grandly and wildly situated.

Steigl (6900*), a depression of the Gosauer Slein, down to the (1 hr.) Hof- 
pnrgt-HiUte and (IV2 hr.) Filzmoos (p. 570). 

From Gosau to Abtenau, 8^2 ^- The road ascends for i'^/^ M. 
to the Pass Gschutt (3185'; inn), the boundary between Upper 
Austria and the district of Salzburg, It then descends to (81/2 ^J- 1 
Russhach (2660'; two inns), at the foot of the Gamsfeld (6640'), 
which may be ascended via the Angerkar Alp in 3^2 l^rs. (see p. 144), 
and leads through the Russbach-Tal to the (6 M.) Schiveiyhof Bridge 
over the Lammer (2030'; about V2 ^^« t^ the S.E. is the Zwieselbad, 
p. 152) and to ( 8V2 M.) Abtenau. 

A preferable route for pedestrians leads over the *Zwie8el Alp 
(5195') : from Gosau to the Zwiesel Alp 3, to Abtenau 6 hrs.; guide 
(not indispensable) to the Zwiesel Alp 4, to Abtenau 8 K. The path 
(way-marks), beginning at the Brandwirt, ascends over the Kalvarien- 
berg, chiefly through wood. At the foot of the summit, beyond an 
enclosure, the path to the right leads to the (21/2 hrs.) Ed Alp (see 
p. 152); the path to the left, ascending on the E. side to the summit, 
is shorter but steeper.

From the Gosau-Sclimied (p. 151) a path ascends to the right throogh 
wood by a finger-post, 25 min. on the way to the Gosau-See, to (2 hrs.)" 
the Ed Alp (Alpcnrosc, 18 beds at 2-3 K., clean), 20 min. below the summit. 
Or we may ascend direct from the Vorderc See, through the so-called 
'Kraut^arten\ close below the Donnerluigel (2 hrs. ; recommended for the 
descent). Bnih these paths also are indicated by red marks. 

*ViEW. To the S., in the distance, to the right of the Donnerkogel, 
rise the Hochalmspitze, then the Tauern chain, and the conspicuous 
Gross-Glockner, with its snow-fields ; adjoining it is the Wiesbachhorn; to 
the right, through an opening, the Gross -Venediger is partly visible. 
To the S. W., in the foreground, the Tennen-Gebirge; more to the left, 
the Uebergossene Alp and the Hochkonig. To the W. the Hohe Gcill ; to 
the right, rather more distant, the long Untersberg. To the E., above the 
Gosau-Tal, rises the Dachstein, with the Gosau glaciers; far below lie 
the Gosaulacke and the small green Hintere Gosau-.See. From the slope, 
about 50 paces farther on, we obtain also a view of the Vordere Gosau-See. 

The Grosse Donnerkogel (6730') may be ascended from the Zwiesel Alp 
in 2 hrs., with guide {% K.). 

Travellers bound direct for the Pongau proceed in V2 hr. to the three 
chalets below the summit of the Zwiesel Alp to the W. Marked path thence 
in 2 hrs. to Annaberg (2515'; Post; Neuwirt), whence a road (diligence daily) 
leads via Lungotz (Penn) and (6 M.) St. Martin (*Post) to the (2 hrs.) station 
of Brunnhtiusl (p. 572). — From Lungotz an attractive route (5 hrs.) leads 
via the Jockel-Riedel (5640*) to Werfen (p. 164). From St. Martin the ascent 
of the Frommerkogel (G190'; view), to the W., is made in 3 hrs. 

To Fti.zMoos (U hrs. ; guide advisable, 8 K). P'rom the Zwiesel Alp 
an attractive but fatiguing path leads Hinter dem Stein round the W. side 
of the Donnerkogeln to the (2 hrs.) Stuhl Alp (4500'), which affords a fine 
view of the Tauern. It then ascends the steep Stuhl-Klamm and crosses the 
Stuhlloch-Hohe (5250') and the Looseck to the (2 hrs.) Sulzkar Alp whence 
we proceed via the Hacklplatten (4830') to the (1 hr.) A\i Alp and (1 hr.) 
Fihmoos (p. 570). 

Ekom the Zwibsbl Alp to Abtenau (3-3V2 hrs.). The path 
[red and white marks) descends from the Ed Alp (see ahove) to the 
depression on the N.W., leaving the fence to the right. Beyond the 
meadows straight in front it turns to the left and follows the guide- 
posts, passing at first tlirough wood, beyond which (2/4 hr.) we 
obtain a fine view of the Lammer-Tal, with the Tennen-Gebirge 
and Uebergossene Alp to the W. Then past the hamlet of Ed to a 
(11/2 ''i^- ) bridge over the Lnmmer. We may now either cross the 
bridge and follow the Annaberg road to (4^^ M.) Abtenau; or, 
without crossing, follow the cart-track to the right to the ( 17-2 ^•) 
*Bad Abtenau or Zwieselbad ('2335'; 90 beds from 1 K. QOk, pens, 
from 7 K.), with a bitter spring and baths, and join the Gosau road 
(p. 151) at the (10 min.) Schweighof Bridge. We cross the Lammer 
to (IV4 hr.) Abtenau (2335'; Roter Ochs; Post; Brda), a village 
with 750 inhab. at the N.E. base of the iennen-Oebirge (p. 154). 

The Bleikogel (7900'; guide 12 A'.), the central summit of the Tennen- 
Gebirge, may be ascended from Abtenau via the Tori and the Tenn-Alpe in 
6 hrs. (fatiguing). Excellent view. The descent may be made via the 
Pitschenherg Alp to JVerfen (comp. p. 154). Guide, Matth. Guggenberger of 
Abtenau. 

From Abtenau to Golling (12 M.; diligence and carriages, 
see p. 148). The road leads to the N.W. to DoUerhof and (IV2 M.) 
Muhlrain and then descends into the deep and well wooded valley 
of the Schwarzbach, which it crosses near its junction with the 



BLl)ttNBACH-TAl.. Afap, p. 754. — //. fi. 2.9. 15B 

Lammer (1 i/o M.). We then follow the left bank of the latter, passing 
(1/4 M.) the Voglau Inn^ opposite the hamlet of Pkld (right bank). 
The valley contracts and is shut in by lofty wood-clail cliffs. 1/4 ^f- 
Finger-post indicating the way to the right across the Lammer to 
the (l/o^rO *i'ichl'Fall or Aubach-FaU (230' high) and the Ofen of 
the Aubach. About I74M. farther on, to the right, below the road, 
is the St. Veil's Bridge, which affords a fine view of the Lammerofen 
(see below). The road now descends to (1 M.) the Lammer-Brilcke, 
crosses it (Briickenwirt, on the right bank), where it is joined on 
the left by the steep old road via the Strubberg^ and follows the right 
bank to (3 M.) Scheffau and (3 M.) Golling (p. 12G). 

Visitors to the 'Lammerftfen (' Yeits- Brilckl- Klamuien' ; guide advisable 
for novice?) turn to the right trom the road at the finger-post about I72 M. 
below St. Veit's Bridge, tuUow the somewhat trying path (steps) through 
the upper and narrower portion of the gorge, wnich afterwards expands, 
and in ca. 25 min. reach the inn at the Lamnier-Briicke (see above). 

From the point, IV2 31. shf»rt of Gollins, where the road and the 
Lammer separate, a footpath leads to the left towards the bridge crossed 
by the Salzburg road. Less than 3/* M. beiure the bridge is the entrance 
to the Sahach Ofen (p. 127), so that visitors to that gorge save 1 hr.'s walk 
if they proceed thither direct fruni h.M-e. — Ascent of the Si-lnntrze. Hcvij from

The railway traverses the broad valley towards the S., passing on 
the right the entrance to the Bliintau-Tal (p. 106) and on the left 
that of the Lnmmer-Tal (see above). It crosses the Lammer and 
the Salzach, passes through a tunnel (1000 yds. long) piercing the 
Ofenauer Berg^ a spur of the Hagen-Gebirge, and again crosses the 
Salzach by an iron bridge of 105 yds. span, beyond which it enters 
the *Pa88 Lueg fp. 127). 24 M. Sulzau (1665'; Struber Restau-

In the Bliihnbach'Tal, a favourite haunt of the chamois, a fine new 
road leads through the picturesque gorge, between the Imlau-Gebirge on 
the left and the Hagen-Gebirge on the right, and past the (2 hrs.) Shooting 
Lodge of Archduke Franz Ferdinand (2685'; no accommodation). From the 
(I'/z hr.) head of the y&\\e.Y {Tennboden, 4225') fatiguing passes lead to the 
W. across the Bluhnbach , Tori (7015') or the Mauer - Scharte (7155') to the

Pens. Post; Loxce; Hirsch; Aupuldl; Zum Tiroler; Adler; Rossi), 
with 725 inhab., lies on the opposite bank, at the foot of the Ueber- 
gossene Alp (see below), and is frequented as a summer-resort. 

The "Erzherzog Eugen-Klamm^ a gorge with picturesque waterfalls, 1 M. 
to the E. of the village, deserves a visit. — The Tennen-G^ebirge, the huge 
lauuntain-mass between the Salzach, Lammer, and Fritz valleys, 18 M. long 
and 12 M. broad, is best visited from this point. From Pfarr-Werfen (see 
bflow) we proceed to the E., passing the village of Werfen tceng (Eberharter), 
to (4 hrs.) the Werfener Hutte of the Austrian Tourist Club, on the Elmaver 
AV/7«m (6330'-, rfmts. in the ueighbouring Sennhiitte). The Hochthron (Ti&iy -,

( li. 96). The (1/4 hr.) Fall of the Gainfeldbach (167 ft. high) is worth 
seeing. 

The ascent of the 'Hochkftnig (9640' •, 9-10 hrs.) presents no difficulty 
to experts (guide 18. from Mitterberg 10 K. ; Felix Reich, Joh. Bachler, Mat-

over rocks to the summit, on which is the Kaiser- Jubildums-Haus of the 
Austrian Tourist Club (Inn, 9 beds and 23 mattresses). The 'Panorama is 
extensive and magnificent. — The descent via the Teufelsloch to (3'/2 hrfl.) 
Hintertal (see p. 161) is not very difficult for experts with steady heads,

apparently closed overhead. The path crosses the Ache and leads through 
a tunnel , beyond which the best view of the gully is obtained, to a 
-Waterfall, 165' in height, at the end of the gorge (950 yds. from the en- 
trance). From this point the path (now unattractive) leads in V2 hr. to the 
'Bad', a ruinous hut where the warm springs which arise close by were 
formerly used by the inhabitants of this region. Hence a path ascends to 
the left to the Grossarl road and to (I hr.) the Inn zur Liechtentteinklamm- 
Hdhe. The other path proceeds straight on from the Bad and then ascends 
a steep wall of rock ("Sautersteig") to the Grossarl road, which is reached 
near the Stegenwacht (p. 156); thence to St. Johann, l>/4 hr. — A path 
to the W. of the entrance to the Klamm crosses the hill to (1 hr.) stat. 
Hchwarzach-at. Veil (p. 156). 

The 'Hoch-Griindeck (5995') may eaaily be ascended in 3-3V2 hrs. by a 
marked bridle-path, most of which is in shade (guide, unnecessary, 7 K. ; 
mule 14 iT.). Refreshments at the Schurzach-Bauer, Ihr. from St. Joliann. The 
summit (Hochgriindeck-Haut, Inn, with 18 beds and 6 mattresses, 10 min.

The Grossarl-Tal (20 M. Ion-;), the eaaternraost of the valleys stretching 
down from the Hohc Tauern mountain-chain to the Salzach, is traversed 
by a road (diligence to Grossarl daily in 3 hrs., A K.) passing at a con- 
siderable elevation above the Liechtenstein-Klamm (pedestrians should go 
through the Klamm, see p. 153) to the (2 hrs.) Inn znr Liechtensteinklamm-

road ends. We then ascend, to the left, through the Schoder-Tal to the 
(I'A hr.) Schuder Alp or Stockham Alp (4595'), belov? the small and marshy 
Schvder-See. Here the valley forks. An interesting path (red marks, but 
guide advisable, 11 A. from Iliittschlag) leads hence through the Knlmtal 
and over the Arl-Scharte (74o5') to the (4 hrs.) Samer-Hutle' in the Hinten-

the S. of Wagrein opens the Kleinarl-Tal, the westernmost valley of the 
Xiedere Tauern. This valley is traversed by a road leading past (I'/* hr.) 
Mitter-Kleinarl (3325'; inn) to the (IV4 hr.) Jdge.r-See, on which is a shooting- 
lodge of Baron Imhof. From the Schwabach Alp (3935'), ^/i hr. straight on, 
a bridle-path ascends steeply to the (i^/a hr.) Tappenkar Alp, on the N.W. 
side of the beautiful Tappenkar-See (5fiS0'), A fine panorama is obtained 
from the Tappenkar - Ifo/ie (65()0'; to Kardeis, see above). — From the 
Tappenkar Alp a marked path (guide desirable) crosses to the Ldngau. 
It ascends over grass to the Haslloch (6890'), or head of the pass, to the 
N. of the Klingspitze (7975'; ascent in 1 hr., recommended), and then de- 
scends abruptly to (1 hr.) the Kiinigs Alp (5415'), in the Rieding-Tal, and

at 1-3, pens. 6-9 A'.; Schwarzacher Hof. 40 beds at 1.20-3 A'., clean; 
Holzer't Inn), where the Protestant peasantry and miners held their last 
meeting in 1731, after which Leopold, Archbishop of Salzburg, issued a 
decree banishing no fewer than 22,151 'heretics'" from his dominions. The 
Egger inn, where the peasantry solemnly ratified their league by the 
ancient custom of dipping their fingers in salt, still contains the table at 
which the ceremony took place, with a rude painting representing the 
event. A book lying before one of the men contains the words : '■ Dilexerunt 
tenfbras magis quam lucem. Joan. c. 3, v. 19\

is reached in 1 lir. by followiiii; the narrow road opposite the station, 
which descends along the right bank of the Salzach (red way-marks). 
After 10 min. we pass under the railway-line to the right and ascend, 
obtaining a fine retrospect higher up of Schwarzach and the chateau of 
Goldegg above it; 20 min. the farms of Weiding ; 5 min. Oberreith Farm, 
whence a beautiful path to the right leads through wood to (Vi hr.) the

(no diflicolty for adepts), commands a superb view. 

The train crosses the Salzach and follows its narrow valley, 
passing through a tunnel and several cuttings in the rock. It soon 
crosses the Salzach again and reaches (47 M.) Lend (2070'; Post; 
Turri ). 

Kear the aluminium-factory below the village ('/a M.) a fine waterfall, 
over '20y in height, now much injured by the factory, is formed by the 
Oatteiner Ache just before it joins the Salzach. The bridge below the fall 
forms the boundary between the Pongau and I'in/.gau. Pedestrians may 
make a pleasant excursion by the road through the magnificent Gasteiner 
Klamm to (l'/4 hr.) the station of Klammstein (p. 163). 

Above (SO'/o M.) Eschenau the line crosses the Salzach twice 
and then passes through a tunnel, 350 yds. long. 52 M. Rauris- 
Kitzloch. at the entrance of the Rauris-Tal (p. 175). 

•Kitzloch-Klamm, l'/4 hr. there and l>ack. We cross the Salzach to 
the Restaurant Lackuei\ and then the Rauriser Ache (adm. 40 A.), and ascend 
the right bank of the latter. At the (V4 hr.) beginning of the ravine the 
path crosses to the left bank and leads past a small stalactite grotto to 
the (8 min.) Kessel. into which the Ache is precipitated in four leaps from 
a height of 330 ft. We cross the bridge and ascend in zigzags and by 
wooden steps, passing two projecting platforms from which we obtain a 
good survey of the seething abyss. At the top we turn to the right and 
pass throngh three tunnels, one of which is 58 yds. long. The bridge 
beyond the long tunnel ('/4 hr. from the station) commands a striking view 
of the chasm, and of the Oedwandspitz in front (thence to the Landsteg 
V2 hr.. see p. 175). We now return to the upper end of the wooden steps. 
where we ascend to the right through two short tunnels, and then descend 
by a good path to the ('/z hr.) station of Rauris-Kitzloch. 

Immediately beyond Rauris-Kitzloch the train traverses a tunnel 
(295 yds.). — 53 M. Taxenbach (2330'). The village [2475'; Alte

(all toilsome; guide indispensable) from Saalfelden to the Kiinigs-See are 
the Weissbachl-Schavte (7365), between the Uollermaishorn and the Achsel- 
horn, the Buchauer Scharte (748o'). between the Selbhorn and the Schon- 
feldspitze, and the Diesbach- Scharte (ca. 6 65'), to the S.E. of the Kleine 
Hundstod (in each case 8-10 hrs. to the Funtensee). 

A road (one-horse carr. to Hintertal in 1^ 2 hr., 8 .ff.) ascends the 
Urslau-Tal to the E. to (3»/4 M.) Aim (SeiO"; Almerwirt; Bichlerwirt), 
where there is a pilgrimage-church, and whence the -Hundstein (69)5') 
may be ascended in 41/2 hrs. (cinp. pp. 157. 158, ICO), and the Selbhorn (8710'; 
highest summit of the Steinerne Meer) in tj hrs. with guide, cither via the

The train now turns to the N.W., crosses the Saalach, and ascend.s 
at the base of the Leogang Steinherge to (75 M.) Leogang (2755'; 
iiin), the last station in the province of Salzburg. About '^/^ M. to 
the N. is Bad Leogang (2820'; unpretending); below the line, about 
IV2 M. to the S.E., lies the village (2580'; Kirchenwirt). 

The 'Birnhorn (SGiO*), the highest point of the Leogang Steinherge, may 
be ascended from Bad Leogang in 5V2-6 hrs., with guide (Jot. Oberlader

Saalfelden (2440'), see p. 160. The road leads to the N. through 
the wide valley of the Saalach, in view of the Leoganger Steinberge 
on the left and tlie Steinerne Meer on the right, and with a fine 
retrospect of the Tauern to the S. After about 3 M. the valley con- 
tracts. The (47-2 M.) Brandlhauer is the only point in the valley from 
which the Gross-Glockner is visible (view-indicator). The road 
enters the Diesbacher Hohlwege, a ravine 6 M. in length, watered by 
the Saalach. To the right of the (6 M.) Dieshach-Muhle (2220') is a 
tine waterfall, to the left is the club-path to the (S'/^ hrs.) Passauer

diverges to the right (*Seisenberg-Klamm, see p. 112). 

The road crosses to the left bank of the Saalach. To the left, 1/4 ^r. 
farther on, is the entrance to the Lamprechts-Ofenloch. 

The 'Lamprechts-Ofenloch Caverns, made accessible by the Passau 
Alpine Club and lighted by electricity, are well worth a visit (open all 
the year round ; adm. IV2 K.). A path, alternating with steps, leads to 
the waterfall in the 'Johaun-Sleiner-Halle', 385 yds. from the entrance and 
170' higi.er. The fine chambers and curious rock and other formations 
due to ercsion are interesting. 

In another 1/2 ^^- we reach the mouth of the Schiittach-Graben 
on the left. 

About 21/4 M. up the Schiittach-Graben is the *Vorderkaser-Klamm, au 
impcsing goriic V* M. long, between frequently overhanging clifis, 195-23U' 
in height, which are often only 2 ft. apart and hold suspended boulders 
wedged between them at the top. In 1881 the gorge was made accessible 
by the construction of numerous bridges and steps. A road runs as far 
as the Vorderkater Jnn, where tickets of admission (40 A.) are sold, and 
whence we ascend in 'A hr. on foot to the entrance to the gorge, an inspection 
of which takes ^/i-l hr. (umbrella or waterproof desirable). — Frum the 
Vorderkaser-Klamm to Hochfilzen (p 233) a marked path leads via the 
Dalten Alp, E&mer-Sattel {imb"), Schiittach Alp and Willeck Alp in 31/2 hrs. —

Excursions (marked club-paths ; guide.*, Oeorg Sock,, Jos. Ensmarm). 
Beautiful walk to the (2omin.) Exenbach-iluelle (Lofever Briindl), a spring to 
the S. of the Waidring road, at the entrance to the -Loferer Hochtal, a 
grand rocky valley enclosed by the Loftrei- Steinberge (Br-ithorn. Hinter- 
horn, Reifhorn. Ochscnh" rn) of whii-li a full view is obtiined 1/2^4 ^I- "ip 
the valley. Fmm the Exeabach-*^uelle the green-marked 'Salzbnrger-VVeg'

— By the Tyrol road (see p. 227) or by the Auj;usten- Promenade to the 
(20 min.) Hinterhorn Inn., at the entrance of the P;:ss Strub (p. 227). — 
The Loferer Alpe (4195': rfmt^. at the MadL'^a.ier. in the 'Obertrett") is 
another fine point, reached by a marked path (red and white) in 2V2-3 hrs. 
(guide, not indispensable, 6 A'. 1. Fine views irom the Schonbic/il (5340';

prospect). From the Waidringer Nieder we may descend by the 'Gries- 
bacher Steig' (marked path, but guide necessary) to (3 hrs.) Waid- 
ring (p. 227). — The Ochsenhorn (8240'). ascended from the Schmidt- 
Zabierow-Hiitte through the Kleine Wehrgrube in 3 hrs., and the Kreuz- 
Reifhorn (7975'; 3-3V2 hrs.) are both difficult; still more difficult is the 
Grosse Reifhorn (8195*), scaled from the Kreuz-Reifhorn via the S. arete 
in 3/4 hr.

(guide-postj. From (10 min.) the Friedl (inn) we ascend to the left for 

min. ; V2 hr. bridge over the Unkenbach or Schwarzbach (small water- 
fall to the left). We almost immediately traverse the Eibl-Klamm ; then 
pass a workmen's hut (-Engstiibr ; generally closed), and reach the (1 hr.) 
entrance to the Klamm, or gorge of the Schwarzbach, which was rendered 
accessible in 1830. This gorge is especially remarkable for the spiral 
contortions of the huge rocky sides, 1(X3' in height, which nearly meet 
at places. At the entrance is an inscription from Propertius (placed 
there by Louis I. of Bavaria): 'Gutta cavat lapidem non vi sed saepe 
cadendo\ The gorge, V* M. long, is quitted at the upper end by flights 
of wooden steps leading to the gamekeeper's hut of Schwarzberg, where 
there is an excellent spring. — Thence over the Kammerkohr Alp (5405')

into the Heutal. When the road divides, at the base of the Sonntagshom, 
we ascend the vallev to the left, passing (lV2hr.) the Schneider Alp (3160'), 
to Oh br.) the fall (655' in height). The path leads behind the fall. (Through 
the Fischbach-Tal to Seehaus and Ruhpoldifig , see p. 94.) These two excur- 
sions may be combined, but not without a guide (6 K.).

Hof-Gaatein (2860'), the capital of the valley (1000 Inhab.), was 
in the 16th cent., when its mines still produced considerable quan- 
tities of gold and silver, the wealthiest place in this district next 
to Salzburg. It is now a quiet and inexpensive health-resort, to 
which thermal water is conducted, with little loss of heat, from the 
springs at Bad Gastein, by means of a conduit completed in 1906, 
A bust of Emp. Francis I. commemorates the construction of the 
first conduit in 1828. On the external walls of the Church and also 
to the left of the choir in the interior are tombstones of the Strasser, 
Weitmoser, Zott , and other families (16th cent.). Small Kur- 
Garten. On the slope of the W. hills, along which runs the railway, 
are several cafe's with fine views : to the N.W. (20 miu.) the Kalt- 
hrunnen-Miihle; a little higher, above the railway, Cafe- Restaur ant 
Tivoli; to the W. (25 min.) the Pyrkers Hbhe; and to the S.W. 
(25 min.) the Weltmoser-Schlosschen (built in 1545), with two round 
towers. On the E. side of the valley (20 min.) is the pretty fall of 
the Rastetzenbach. 

Excursions (gtiide. Felix Moises). S.E. to the (IV2 hr.) Planitzer Bauer., 
with view of the Sonnblick; N.W. to the (2V2 hrs.) Biber Alp, with fine 
view of the Ankogel group. — The 'Gamskarkogel(8090'; 41/2 hrs. 5 guide 10, 
to Bad-Gastein 11 K., not indispensable^ horse and attendant 25 K.) is 
easily ascended from Hof-Gastein. After an ascent of V2 ^r. we leave the 
chapel to the right, and a few paces beyond it take the less trodden path 
to the right, ascending through wood in the Rastetzen-Tal, to the (2 hrs.) 
Rasietzen Alp (5665'; rfmts.); thence to the summit (refuge- hut) 2 hrs. 
more. The snow-covered Ankogel, with the Hochalmspitze, and the moun- 
tains round the Nassfeld (Sonnblick and Hochnarr) are most conspicuous to 
the S.; to the W. the lofty double-peaked pyramid of the Gross-Glockner 
and the prominent Wiesbachhorn ; N. the Uebergossene Alp ; N.E. the 
Dachstein and the Hochgolling. Descent to Bad Gastein, see p. 170; to

75ad-6'a.'«€m (3250-3430'; 800 inhab.i 8-9000 visitors annually) 
is picturesquely situated at the upper end of the Gastein Valley, on 
both sides of the Ache, the more important part lying to the E,, at the 
base of the Graukogl, and the smaller part to the W., at the foot of 
the Stubner Kogel. Since the opening of the railway the latter half 
has been growing rapidly. In the middle of the village the Ache is 
precipitated through narrow gorges, forming two magnificent Water- 
falls, the upper 207', the lower 280' high. The warm springs (113- 
1'20" Fahr.), known since the middle ages, attained their modern 
celebrity owing to the annual visits of the late Emperor William I. 
(in 1863-87). Their efficacy in cases of debility, nervous affections, 
gout, and rheumatism is now ascribed to the radium which the water 
was discovered to contain in 1898. The climate is fresh (mean 
temperature in summer 57.4° Fahr.; May 51°; Sept. 52°) and brac- 
ing, but at the same time damp and subject to frequent showers. 
The rallying-points of visitors are the small Straubinger- Platz 
(PI. B, 4) to the E. and the Wandelbahn (a long glazed gallery, used 
as a promenade in wet weather), with the Kur-Casino, to the W. of 
the bridge at the upper waterfall (good view of the fall from the 
bridge). On the E. side of the valley are the Roman Catholic Parish 
Church, completed in 1875, and, farther on, the old church of 
St. Nicholas (PI. B, 3), of the end of the 14th century. A good view 
of the lower fall is obtained from a lookout behind the Parish Church, 
between Moser's and the Gasteiner Hof. The highroad and the 
Bahnhof-Strasse fromHof-Gastein end on the W. slope of the valley, 
where, between the huge Hot. de I'Europe and the Pension Viktoria, 
the small Protestant Church (1873) is visible. The carriage-road to 
Bocksteiu (p. 169) continues to ascend the wooded slope above the 
Elisabethhof; the road into the Kotschach-Tal (see below) diverges 
to the left from it and crosses the Hohe Br'ucke (PI. B, 4), During 
the excavations necessitated by the railway several old glacier mills 
(PI. Gl.; A, 2, 3, B, 5) where discovered on the Bahnhof-Strasse 
and the Bocksteiu road. 

Bad - Gastein is surrounded by pleasant walks provided with 
numerous benches. On thb W. Sidb of the Vallby. To the right, 
below the road, are the Schwarzenberg Grounds (PI. B, 3, 4) ; farther 
on, to the left, above the road, is the Erzherzog-Johann, Promenade, 
beginning at the Erzherzog Johann Cafe' (lodgings) and ending at the 
Cafe Oswald (PI. A, 1 ; 1/2 hr.). — On the E. Sipe of the Valley 
the Kaiser- Wilhelm Promenade (PI. B, C, 3, 2) extends from the 
Hirsch Hotel into the Kotschach-Tal ; beyond the Kaiserhof is a mon- 
ument to Emp. William I. To the right of the Kaiser-Promenade a 
path ascends to the Srhwnrze Lienel Cafe- Restaur ant (PI. C, 3 ; V2 ^r. 
from the Straubinger-Platz); on the left is a path descending to tlie 
Koniy Carol- Promenade (PI. C, 2), passin^r the falls of the Kotschach 
( across the bridge to the Cafe' Gamskar, see p. 169). in the Kotschach- 
Tal, •y4-l hr. from tlie Straubinger-Platz, is the Griine Baum, a 



VaUey. BAD-GASTEIN. Map,p.l64. — II.Ii.3l. 169 

frequented cafe-restaurant and garden, with a view up the valley as 
far as the Kessel Glacier (see helow ). At the entrance to the Konig 
Carol-Promenade a guide-post indicates the way down to the bridge 
over the main fall of the Kotschach-Bach : crossing the bridge and 
ascending to the left we reach the (^V4^^- J Cafe -Restaurant Gamskar 
(PI. B, C, 1; 3370'), a conspicuous new building with a terrace and 
the finest view of Bad-Gastein (rooms also, pens. 8-10 A".). The old 
Lut/i«r/»o/' (properly Lodingerhof), a few steps farther on, belongs 
to the same proprietor. 

In the Uppbk Part of the Vai^lby (260' above Gastein), or 
basin of Boekstein, enclosed on the W. by the Hirschkarkopf, on 
the E. by theHohe Stuhl, and on the S. by the Radhansberg, the 
Kaiaerin-Elisaheth Promenade (PI. A, 6; nearest approach from the 
Bahnhof-Strasse, by passing under the railway to the right, a 
little short of the station) follows the left bank of the Ache to 
Boekstein (IV4 tir. ; p. 170), passing a rock with a bronze medal- 
lion of the Empress Elisabeth. Beyond the road to the Hohe Briicke 
the highroad (p. 168) passes the Echo lodging-house and then 
beneath an overhaiiging rock (right) which resounds from the roar 
of the waterfall. To the right, farther on, is a path to the Pyrkers 
Hohe (PI. B, 4; 3710'; view; descent to the station). The highroad 
forks ; the right branch leads to the station (road to the left under the 
railway to the Elisabeth-Promenade), while the left branch crosses 
the Ache, passes under the railway, and beyond the Tourhtenheim 
(p. 167; 3565') and fl^jrscWiar hotels reaches (1 hr.) Boekstein (p. 170). 

Between the Straubinger-PIatz and the Schwaigerhaus footpaths 
ascend the slope to the road to the Hohe Briicke and the Kotschach- 
Tal ( p. 168). About 2 min. short of the bridge a guide-post in- 
dicates a steep path ascendiiis to the right to the (8/4 hr. I Windisch- 
yratz-Hohe (PI. B, C, 5; 4120'), whence we have a fine view across 
the Boekstein valley to the Tauern, and to the N. across the Gastein 
Valley to the Hochkonig. An easier but longer route ascends from the 
highroad to Boekstein (to the left after crossing the Ache and before 
passing under the railway). From the Windischgratz-Hohe we may 
proceed along the path to the Palfuer Alp (p. 170) to (I/2 ^f- ) a 
clearing, whence we have an uninterrupted view of the Nassfeld. 

Excursions. — From the Griiner Baum Restaurant in the Kotschach- 
Tal a path ascends through wood, passing the precipitous Himmelwatid. 
to the left, on the other side of the stream, to the (IV2 hr.) Prossau Alp 
(4250': restaurant). From a point 1 M. farther on (path to the right just 
short of the alp) we obtain a good view of the head of the valley, where 
several streams are precipitated in lofty falls. Beyond the Prossau Alp 
a club-path leads across the Kestel Alp (592.0'), the Kessel Glacier, and the 
Klein -Elend-Schavte (9015') to the Osnabriicker Hiitte in the Malta -Tal 
(p. 610; S'/a hra., toilsome, gaide necessary. 24 K.). — A finger-post 40 min. 
from the Griine Baum on the path to the Pmssau Alp indicates the route 
to the right across the Kotschach to the Reedsee (t3035'; 2^4 hr.s.; guide, 
not indispensable, P> K) . thenc*' over the Palfner-Scharte t<> the Palfner 
Alp, -ee p. i7f). — 1 he Tischlerkarkopf (98800 may he a-^cended from 
the Pmsaau Alp by the 'Biirensleig' (defective), the Titchlerkar Glacier, 
and Titchlerkar- 8charte in 7-S hrs. (difficult and fit for experts only, with 



110 U. R. 31.— Map, p. 164. BOCKSTEIN. Gastein 

guide, 20 A'.). The ascent of the Tiscfilerspifze (9835'), which ia equally 
difficult, may be combined with the former (2 hrs. more; guide 22K.\ 
comp. below and pp. 174. 611). 

The ' Gamskarkogel (8090'; comp. p. 165) is ascended from Bad-Gastein 
in 4'/2 hrs. (guide not indispensable, 10 Z^.). The club-path ascends steeply 
to the right before the CatV; clamskar is reached, and proceeds through 
wood to (IV2 hr.) the Egger Alp (53 tO'5 rfmts.), beyond which it is less 
.«<teep. — The Hiittenkogel (7340'), easily ascended by a marked path via the 
Reihiiben Alp in 3'/-.; hrs.. is a pleasant excursion (guide not indispensable, 
8 A'.). About 3/4 hr. more (41/4 hrs. from Gastein; guide 10 iT.) brings us 
to the Graukogel (S190'), which affords a view similar to that from the 
Gamskarkogel. The glaciers, however, are much nearer, and at its E. 
base lie the Reedsee and Palfner See. — The route into the Kotschach- 
Tal (S-9 hrs. ; guide 12 K.) proceeds from the Windischgratz-Hohe to the 
Palfner Alp (4790'; ^ji hr.) and then ascends steeply to ^he Palfner See 
(6790') and the Palfner Scharte (.7650'), between the Graukogel and Kreuz- 
kogel; descent to the Reedsee, etc., see p. 169. 

Fbom Bockstein (see below) a road runs through the Anlauf-Tal to 
(I/2 ^I-) the Restaurant Kummetz (with rooms). High above on the right is 
the Hiorkar Fall. An Alpine path, stonv at places, ascends farther on past 
(1 hr.) the Tauembach Fall to the (IVz'hr.) Upper Radeck Alp (5480'; rfmts. 
and haybeds), with a view of the Ankogel, Tischlerspitze, etc. The ascent 
of the Ankogel (10.705') may be made hence via the Radeck- Sch arte (9485') 
and the Kleine Ankoyel (10,160') in 5^/2-6 hrs., but is laborious (lor experts 
only; guide from Bockstein 18. with descent to the Osnabrucker Hiitfe 26, 
via the Hannover Haus to Mallnitz 20 K.); easier by railway to Mallnitz 
and theni-e by the Hannover-Haus (p. 174). — The Tischlerspitze (Fasch- 
nock , 9835'), ascended by the Grvbenkar - Scharte (9785') and the S.K. face 
in 51/2-6 hrs., is difficult and fit for experts only (guide from Bock- 
stein 22, with descent to the Osnabriicker Hiitte 30 K. ; comp. above and 
p. 174). — An easy and attractive path, preferable to that by the Mall- 
nitzer Tauern, leads over the Hohe or Korn Tauern to the Hannover Haus, 
in 8 hrs., or direct to 3Iallnitz (p. 172) in 71/2 hrs. from Bad-Gastein 
(guide from Bockstein 14 A"., unnecessary in fine weather for experts). 
Near the Tauembach Fall (see above) we cross the bridge to the right 
and ascend by a club-path (indicated bv stakes) to the Grosse Tauemtee 
(6970') and the Hohe Tauern, or Korn-Tauern (8105'; 41/2 hrs. from Bock- 
stein), whence a fine view is enjoyed. On both sides of the pass there 
are considerable remains of an ancient Roman or pre-Roraan road. We 
descend to the C'/2 hr.) picturesque Kleine Tuuerntee (7550'), below which 
the path forks, the branch to the left leading to the (IV2 hr.) Hannover- 
Haus (p. 174), that to the right descending to (2V2 hrs.) Mallnitz (p. 172). - 
From the Korn-Tauern we may proceed to the right, passing the Qriinecker- 
/See(75S5') and the Gamskarlspitze (S. ; p. 174) and crossing the Woisken Glacier, 
to the ^Voisken- Scharte (8030*), and descend to the Nassfeld-Haus (see p. 171; 
6-7 hrs. ; toilsome; guide 14 A".). 

The ascent of the Zitterauer Tisch (7905') from Bad-Gastein is attract- 
ive. The path leads to the W. via the Zitterauer Alp and through the 
Hirschkar (4 hrs.; guide SAT., not indispensable for experts). 

The Tauern railway crosses the Ache and ascends along the E. 
side of the valley to — 

Bockstein, where there are two stations.- 26V2 M. Secondary 
Station {yilQ' ■, Villa Waldfriede), nearest the vilFage, to which a 
footpath only descends ; 28 M. Main Station (3840'; Rail. Restau- 
rant), close to the Tauern Tunnel (p. 172j, for excursions into the 
Anlauf-Tal (see above). Bockstein consists of an E. part (Scholz's 
Cafe'-Restaurant zur Tauernbahn, with rooms), which has come 
into existence since the building of the railway and which is first

reached by the highroad from Gastein , and of the old village 
(3700'; Hot. Kurhaus, with garden -restaurant, pens. 10 K.; Ed- 
linger, R. from 1 K. 60 /i., pens. 5-8 K., well spoken of), 3/^ M. to 
the W., at the foot of the Radhausberg^ which bounds the Bock- 
stein valley on the S., at the entrance to the Nassfeld valley. On 
the hill to the N. of the village , where the Kaiserin-Elisabeth 
Promenade (p. 169) ends, are a domed church of 1766 and a 
shooting-lodge (1883) of Count Czernin. In the village are the 
offices of the now unimportant gold-mines in the Radhansberg. 

The Nassfeld-Tal, through which flows the Ache, is ascended by 
a narrow road (to the Xassfeld 2 hrs.; small carriage there and back 12, 
two pers. 16 K.'). From a height 5 min. to the left of the Kurhaus 
a view of the Ankogel is obtained. Beyond (35 min.) the Straub- 
inger-Hutte I 4000') the road ascends through the Asten, a gorge in 
which the Ache forms a series of cascades. At the entrance is the 
*Kess€l Fall, at the end (1 hr.) the Daren Fall. Below the latter 
the stream which drains the Pochhard-See (see below) falls over a 
precipice 380' high, forming the graceful Schleier Fall ('veil-fall'). 
By the bridge, 10 min. farther on, the road enters the Nassfeld, 
a valley 21/4 M. in length, partly surrounded by snow -covered 
mountains (from left to right, the Geiselkopf, Murauerkopf, Sparan- 
gerkopf, Schlapperebenspitze with the Schlappereben Glacier, Strabe- 
lebenkopf, and the lofty, pyramidal Schareck; to the N.W. the Kolm- 
karspitzt rising over the Siglltz-Tal). About 8 min. from the bridge, 
just below the mouth of the Siglitz-Tal, stands the Erzherzogin- 
Marie-Valerie-Haus (5265'; *Inn, 20 beds at 4 K.). 

ExcL-KSioNs. The Herzog Ernst (9 '2.5'), a.ecended from tlie (23/4 hr.s.) 
Bifel-Scharl'^ (see below) by the Xennerkoyel-Grat (ia&rV.ed. pa.\h) in 13/4 hr., 
with !?nide, is easy aad liiteresliDg. — The 'Schareck fl0.2'75'i may be 
ascended either from the Valerit-Hau«, by the 'Neuwirt-Weg' across the 
N.E. arete, in 4' 2-0 hr.«. (for experts only; '^nide 14 A'.), or from tlie 
(41/2 hr-.) Herzog Ernst (see above) by the N.W. arete (wir.^ -ropns) in 
3/4 hr. (guide 18, via the Goldbert.' Glacier to the '^onnblick 24, to Heiligen- 
blut 32 A'.). Jla'^nificent panirama. Descent to Kolra-Saiga.'n or to the 
Duiiburoer Hiitte, see po. 176, 613. 

From the Nassfeld to Kulji-Saigdrn over the Pochhabd-Scharte, 
an attractive route of 4V2 hrs. (guide, desirable. 9 K.). From the Valerie- 
Hans we ascend at the entrance of the Siglitz-Tal to the right by a path 
indicated by red marks to (IV4 hr.) the Fochhard-See (6075'; shelter-hut). 
We then proceed past the (3/4 hr.) Ohere Pochhard-See (6760'), with deserted 
silver mmes, tu the ('A hr.) Pochhard-Scharte (7.:i4ryj, between the .See- 
kopf (1.) and the Silberpfennig (r.), wlience a fine view is obtained of the 
Rauris 'glaciers and the Ankf)gel. [A more extensive view is obtained frcim 
the "Silberp/ennig (9175'), easily ascended from the pass in I1/2 hr. (guide 
not indispensable).] We descend (path well marked) by the Filzen Alp and 
the Durchgang Alp to (IV2 hr.) Kolm-Saigurn (p. 176). 

Over the Riffel-Scharte to Koi-m-Saigurs (5 hr.s. ; guide 12 K.) or 
TO THE SosNBLicK (7 hrs. ; guide 18 A'.), not difficult. From the (■/< hr.) 
Moser-Hiitle (535.5'; rfmfs.) in the Siglitz-Tal the path ascends rapidly to 
the (21^2 hrs.) Riffel-Scharte (7S90'), a magnificent point of view (club-path to 
the left to the Herzog Ernst and the Schareck, see above). We then descend 
t" the Jeft by the ^Verwaltersteig' f'maia^er's path) on the steep slope of 
the Riffelhdhe to the (l-l'A hr.) Neuhau (p. 176) and (»'<, hr.) Kolm-Saig"rn 
or to (3 hrs.) the Sonnblick (p. 177; guide from Gastein to Heiligenblat 26 K.)

From Gastbin to Mallnitz ovkk the Mallnitzer Tadkbn, 5V» trs., a 
fair bridle-path -, guide not indispensable in line weather (from the Valerie- 
Haus 11 A'.; horse from Bockstein to the Tauernhaus, incl. fee, 15 K. 60 A., 
to Mallnitz 21 K. 60 A. ; the steep descent beyond the Tauernhaus is disa- 
greeable on horseback). From the Valerie-Haus to the Reck-Hutte at the S. 
end of the Nassfeld, 3/^ br. The bridle-path, indicated by stakes and not 
to be missed, winds up a steep slope (good spring at the top) and then 
ascends less steeply through the Eselkar (retrospect of the Hocharn and 
Pochhard-See) to the (272-3 hrs.) Mallnitzer or Niedere Tauern (7945'), a 
depression forming the boundary between Salzburg and Carinthia, on 
which are two finger-posts. A few hundred paces below the saddle stands 
the Mallnilzer Tauern/iaus (7610'), which is now being completely rebuilt 
and is to be renamed the Hagener Hiltle. From this point the *Geiselkop/ 
(9740') may be ascended in 2 hrs. (see p. 173). A club-path is being con- 
structed to the W. to the Feldsee-Scharle and the Duisburger Hiiite (p. 613), 
to the E. to the Hohe Tauern aud the Hannover Haus. — Farther dovvn a 
view is obtained to the S. as far as the Terglou, and to the W. as far as 
the Glockner, while the Mallnitz valley lies far below. The path passes 
(1 hr.) the Mannhart-Hiitte (6035'; p. 173; to the right, the Mallnitzer Weg 
to the Feldsee-Scharle and the Duisburger Hiitte, see p. 173) and near 
(10 min.) the Jamniger-HiiUe (5735') crosses to the right bank of the brook. 
It then descends, at first steeply, but afterwards more gradually through 
wood and meadows (after 1 hr. on the left bank of the stream), passing 
the mouth of the Seebach-Tal (fine view of the Ankogel to the left), to 
(V'j hr.) Mallnitz (see below). 

The 'Kreuzkogel (8815'), the highest peak of the R idhausberg, com- 
mands a majinificent panorama. It is ascended from Bockstein in 41/2 hrs. 
(guide 11 A") by a bridle-path diverging to the left from the road to the 
Nassfeld, 3 min. above Bockstein, which ascends rapidly to the (2 hrs.) 
KiKtppenhaus beside the gold-mine (6235'), 2V2 hrs. from the summit. Eich 
flora. Easier descent to the Nassfeld-Haus (p. 171-, guide 11 K.). 

The Railway now enters the Tauern Turvnel (9300 yds. long; 
cleared in 8-10 min.), by which we pa^s through the ridge of the 
Hohe Tauern, the S. boundary of Salzburg. On emerging from the 
tunnel (4000') we find ourselves in the Seebach-Tal, in the province 
of Carinthia. To the right we have a view of the Tauern-Tal, to 
the left of the Seebach-Tal with the Ankogel. 

3G M. Mallnitz (3865'), 3/^ M. from the village of that name 
(3910' at the church ; inns: Drei Gemsen, an old house, better rooms 
in the de'pendances, with baths and trout-breeding ponds ; .lifter's 
ALpen- Hotel ^' Touristenheim, bed 1.60-2 K., well spoken of; Hot. 
Ankogel; Hohemcarter's Inn ^ Cafe %u den Hohen Tauern; Elise 
Noistemig), which lies in pretty surroundings on the left bank of 
the Mallnitz- Bach, at the junction of the Tauern -Bach and the 
Seebach, and is frequented as a summer-resort (good fishing). 

Walks. The (10 min.) Heiligers Euhe, a moraine- deposit, and the 
belvedere on the Winkler palf en, '/* hr. to the S.W. of Mallnitz, on the 
right bank of the Tauern-Bach, command beautiful panoramas. — The 
(Vz hr.) Park am Wether (3945), a pretty natural park at the foot of the 
Lieskehle, may be reached by diverging to the right at the Drei Gemsen 
Hotel or by ascending along the left bank of the Tauern-Bach and turning 
to the right beyond the Villa Mojsisovics. — Crossing the Seebach (large 
guide-board at tbe bridge) and passing the houses of Stappitz we ascend 
along the left bank, pass under the "Tauern railway (just beyond a p;ith 
from the Park am Wciher), and then near the mouth of the tunnel cross 
the Seebach and follow the right bank, finally leaving the path to the 
Hannover-Huus (p. 174) on the left, to the (IV* hr.) Stappitzer Set (WvQf), 



to Spittal. MALLNITZ. Map, p. 164. —1I.R.31. 173

Ddssentr See, see below. 

Mountain Ascents (guides, Jot. and Joh. Offerer. Jak. and Joh. Rota- 
kopf, Ulr. Ladinig, Chr. Manhart, and Al. Stranig). The S^uleck (iOjlSO*; 
7-8 hrs. ; guide 14, with descent to Maltein 24 K.) is an interesting though 
fatiguing ascent. From Stappitz a marked path leads through the Dossever 
Tal (numerous chamois) to the (3V2 hrs.) Eggtr Alp (6503') and to the 
(^4 hr.) Arthur - von • Schmid- Hiitte on the picturesque DStsener See (7485'; 
Inn, 20 beds), and then to the left over rocks, debris, and snow (construc- 
tion of a path projected) to the S.E. arete and the (3-4 hrs.) summit. Or 
from the lake we may ascend to the right to the (iV* hr.) Dossener Scharte 
(see below), then turn to the left along the Groue Ooss t» the S.E. arete and 
the (1^/2 hr.) summit (line view). The direct descent into the Gos.^graben {p. QiO) 
should be attempted only by experts. — The Hochalmspitze (11,030) may 
be ascended in 41/2-5 hrs. from the (4 hr.s.) Arthur-Vdn-Schmid-Hiiite via 
the gap between the Grosse Goss and the Sauleck, and the Hohe Gdsskar, 
whence the W. Tripp Glacier is crossed (guide 18 £"., with descent to the 
Osnabriicker Hiitte or Villacher Hiitte 22 K.). The ascent from the Han- 
nover-Haus (p. 174) is le=:s laborious. — The Gamskarlspitze (93 0'; 5-6 hrs. ; 
guide 12, to Bockstein l'^ K) is laborious. We ascend the Tauern-Tal to 
the (I hr.) Stacker Alp (4215'), then ascend steeply through wood to the 
Passhuber Alp and Resmer Alp , and cross the scree-slopes of the Woisken 
and the Woisken Glacier to the (3 hrs.) Oamskarl-Scharte. Thence via the 
W. arete to the top, ^ « hr. The ascent from the Oriinecker See (p. 174) 
is more difficult. — The *Geiselkopf (9T40' ; 5-ti hrs.; guide UK.), not 
difficult, is ascended from the (2 hrs) Mannhart-Hiitte via the Feldsee- 
Scharte (see below) in 2V» brs , or from the Mallnitzer Tauernhaus (p. 172) 
in 2 hrs. The summit affords an imposing view of the Goldberg and Glock- 
ner groups on the W., and of the Ankogel group and the Hochalmspitze 
on the E. — The Lonzahbhe (7145'; 8-4 hrs.; guide 5, with descent to Ober- 
Vellach 7 K.) is best ascended by the club-path in the Tauern-Tal, diverg- 
ing to the left at a (20 min.) guide-post to the Hdusler Alp (6115') and 
crossing the broad ridge to the cairn on the top. The other ascents are 
steep and fatiguing. Kich flora. — The Afaresenspitze (d55(f ; 5-6 hra. ; 
guide 10 K.), Feldseekopf (936V; 472-5 hrs. ; 12 K.\ Boseck (9315'; 5-6 hrs. ; 
ICK".), and Lieskehlenspi'ze (7885'; 3 hrs.; 8 K.) may also be ascended from 
Mallnitz. — Over the Ddtsener Scharte to Maltein (10 hrs. ; guide to Pfliiglhof 
l7Jf. ; construction of a path projected), see p. 609; the ascent of the 
Sauleck (see above) may be combined with this route. Over the Niedere 
Tauern or the Kom- Tauern to Qastein (9 hrs. ; guide to Bockstein 12 K.), 
see p. 172, 170. 

To THK D018BDBGER HiJTTE, 51/2-6 hrs., with guide, attractive. From 
Mallnitz we ascend the Tauern-Tal to the W., cross to the right bank in 
1/2 hr., and reach the (I'/i hr.) Jamniger-HUtte (5735) and the (V4 hr.) 
Mannhart-Hiitte (6035'; good accommodation, 6 bedsj, where the path from 
the Mallnitzer Tauernhaus descends on the ri^ht (see p. 172). Hence the 
•Walter-Buninger-Weg' leads to the {V/i hr.) Feldsee-Scharte (8795'), be- 
tween the Feldseekopf (9365'; ascent in »/< ^r- from the Scharte) on the 
left and the Geitelkopf (9740'; 1 hr. from the Scharte, see above) on the 
right, with a fine view to the E. of Mallnitz and the Hochalmspitze, to 
the W. of the Goldberg group. Descent to the snow-field below the Qeiael- 
kopf, beyond which we follow a nearly level path (ca. 8365') on the slope 
above the Wurten- Tal, beneath the precipices of the Murauerkopfe, the 
Schlapperebenspitze, and the Weinflaschenkopf, to (2 hrs.) the Duitburger 
Hiitte (p. 6l3j, the starting-point for the ascents of the Schareck, Sonn-

numerous zigzags from the Seebacb-Tal (p. 172), 3 M. from Mall- 
iiitz (guide-post 'nach Gaslein'). We turn to the right at the 
(l'/2 ^r-) Viktor-Quelle (>;uide-post ), cross the Lackenboden to tlie 
(1 '/2 lir-) Old Hannover- Hutte situated on the Elsche-Sattel (8235'), 
and thence ascend the ridge to the N. to the (40 min.) new 
Hannover-Haus on the Arnold - Hohe (8920'; 26 beds at 3 -fiT.), 
opened in 1911, commanding a beautiful view, including the Dolo- 
mites and the Gross-Glorkner. 

Mountain Ascents (guides, see p. 173). — The ascent of the *Ankogel 
(10,705'; 2-2V2 hrs. ; guide 10, with descent to the Osnabriicktr Hiitte 13, to 
Bockstein 20^.) i.-; not difficult for the moderalely expert, though the 
upper h;.If is fatiguing. The panorama is very fine. The descent 1o the 
Gross-Elend-Scharte, or via the Klein-Elend Glacier and the Bchwarzhornsee- 
Schorte to the (3V2-4 hr.*.) Osnabrilcker Hiitte^ offers no serious difficulty 
(see p. 610) \ but that to the Anlauf-Tal (p. 170) is steep and troublesome. — 
The -Hochalmspitze (11,030'; 7-H hrs.^ guide 14, with descent to the Vil- 
lacher Hiitte or the Osnabriicker Hiitte "20, to the Arthar-voii-"-chnnid-Hiitte

the Gi-vss-Elend Glacier, the Preimel- Scharte (9720'), and the Hochalm Glacier^ 
is not difficult for proficients. Tlie Arnold-Weg offers a sh' rter (S'/z-B hrs.) 
but more difficult mute. This leads from the Eannover-Scharte (see above) 
across the Gross-Elend Glacier to the right to the foot of the Gross-Ehnd- 
Kopj (10,865'), ascends that peak, passing to the Lassuch side about half- 
way up I wire-rope) and linally ascends through a snow-couloir to the top 
of the Hochalinspit/.e. Descent to the Villacher Hutte, 2 hrs., see p. 6(9. 
From the Hannover-Haus under the W. cliffs of the Hochalmspitze and 
via the Lassucher-Scharle or Winkel- Scharte (94"20') to the Avthur-von-Schmid- 
Hiitte in the Diissener Tal fp. 173), 7-8 hrs., with guide, fatiguing (club- 
path under construction). — The Gamskarlspitze (92o5' ; 41/2 hrs. 5 guide 10, 
with descent to Bockstein 14 A.) is laborious. We follow the Korn-Tauern 
route to the Kleine Tavernsee (753u'), then ascend to the W. past the 
Griinecker See, and linally mount over steep slopes of debris and neve 
and the S. arete to the summit (p. 173). The descent may be made to the 
Woisken Glacier and via the WoiskeTi-Scharfe (p. 173) to (4-5' hrs.) Bockstein. 
— The Grauleitenspitze (9060'; guide IV2 A.), reached from the new Han- 
nover-Haus in Vzhr., is easy and attractive. — The Tischlerspitze (/ascA- 
nock, 9^35'), 5-6 hrs. with guide (to Bockstein 25 A.), should be attempted 
by practised and powerful climbers only. It is best ascended after crossing 
the Ankogel from the Klein-Elend Glacier (comp. p. 17(_'). 

Over the Gross-RIlend-Schabte to the Malta-Tal, S'/a hrs. to the 
Osnabriicker Hiitte (guide 10 A'.), an easy and attractive expedition. A

Scharte (S795'), whence it descends over the Plessnitz Glacier to the Gross- 
Elend -Tal and the (IV2 hr.) OsnabrUcker HUtte (p. 610). At the waterfall 
under tlie Plessnitz (Jlacier (see above) a path ascends to the left past the 
Scliwnrzhorn Lakes (p. Ull) to the (l'/-.' hr.) Schwarzhormee- Scharte (ca. 84G5'), 
commanding fine views of the glaciers of the Klein- and Gros^-Elend-Tal, 
whence the "Schicarzhom (p. 611) may be nscended in 1 hr. From the 
Scharte marked path to the (IV* hr.) Osnabriicker Hutte (p. 610 ; guide

the Feldtee-Scharte, the Dw'sburger Hiitle, and the Sonnhlick ; from Mallnitz 
fo Heiligenblut 13-14 hrs. (see p. 173). 

The Railway crosses the Mallnitz-Tal , passes through the 
Dossen Tunnel, and descends along the wooded slope high above 
the Mbll-Tal^ crossing several viaducts. Magnificent view across 
the broad valley, which is dominated on the S.E. by the Polinik 
(p. 613). We pass the castle of Groppenstein (p. 613) before reach- 
ing (41 V2 M.) the station of Ober-Vellach (3445')- 1180' above the 
village (p. 612). Farther on are tvro tunnels , between which we 
catch sight of the restored castle of Unter - Falkenstein and the 
extensive rnins of Ober-FaLktnstein, above Stallhofen (p. 612). Via- 
ducts (the first crossina- the Kapponig-Tnl) and tunnels alternate.

32. The Rauris. 

The little-visited Rauris Valley, which opens to the S. at Taxen- 
bacb, is traver.sed by a monotonous route leading across the Heiligenhhdei' 
Tauern to (11 hrs.) Heiligenblut. The head of the UuUwinkel-Tal (p. 176), 
or S.E. arm of the Rauris. noted for its gold-mines, is enclosed by magni- 
ficent glacier-scenery, which mountaineers will find it well worth their 
while to explore. The *Sonnblick here commands a magnificent panorama 
and may ea-ily be included in a highly interesting passage to Heilij;;en- 
blut (lG-17 bra.: to Kolm-Saigurn 7V-J hrs., Sonnblick 41/2-0, Heiligenblut 
41/2 hr'i.). — A road leads from Taxenbach to Rauris and a narrow rOiid 
goes on thence to Bodenhaus. Mail-cart to Rauris in summer twice daily 
in 2V4 hrs. (fare 2 K. 70 h.). 

Taxenbach^ see pAbl . The road crosses the Salzach at the railway- 
station and ascends in windings to the top of the March (3325'), 
above the Kitzloch-Klamm. At the (5 M.) Landsteg (see below) it 
joins the old road from Lend via Ernbach. — The shortest and 
pleasantest route for pedestrians leads from Rauris- Kitzloch station 
through the Kitzloch-Klamm (p. 157). The path crosses the Ache 
by the (1 hr.) Landsteg (2920' ; inn), whence the road (see above) 



176 11. R.32. — Map,p.l6i. KAURIS. 

leads on the left bank (soon affording a view of the Schareck, IIocli- 
arn, etc.) to (3 M.) Eauris (2990'; *Alt€r Brduer, with garden and 
view, 16 beds at 1-2 Z.,- Ilofmann, well spoken of; Neue Post ; 
Heitzmann)^ an old market-village, prettily situated and frequented 
as a summer-resort. 

ExccKSioNS. The Bernkogel (^armiofifgi, 7616'; 4V2 hra. ; guide, S K., 
advisable) commands a fine view of the Tauern, the Uebergossene Alp, 
etc. From Rauris the marked path proceeds to the E. into the Oais- 
bach-Tal, and ascends the slopes of the Grubereck (6890') to the (3'/2 hrs.) 
Slatin-Satlel (6890') and pt.st tbe^open Bernkogel-Hiitte 0220') to the (^A hr.) 
summit. Descent to the K. via tbe Kokaser Alp to Dorf-Oattein (p. 165 j 
guide \2 E)^ or to the N. through the Leiten-Tal to Lend (p. 157; guide 
11 K.). — Over the Seebach-iScharte or Luggauer-Scharte to (6-7 hrs. ; guide 
IDA") Hof-Gaslein, see p. 1G6. 

At(3M.) WoH/i (3090'; Zembacher; Pfeiffenberger, with mine- 
rals to sell ) the valley divides into the SeidLwinkel (right) and the 
Hiiitwinkel (left). — Over the Weichselbach - Hohe to Bad Fusch 
(5-6 hrs.), see p. 179. 

The Tauern Route (to Heiligenblut, 8 hvs. •, guide 18 K.) leads through 
the Seidlwinkel-Tal, with the scattered village of that name, and past 
the Schock- IlilUen , the Reiterhoj, and the Fall of the Spritzbach. to the 
(3 hrs.) Raurii^er Tauemhaus (4965',^ rustic inn). It then ascends more steeply, 
passing the Annenderwirt Alp (5960'), and crossing tracts of slatey debris 
and snow, to the (2 hrs.) Fiiscfier Wegscheide (way-post; 7940'), where the 
path from the Fuscher-Tdrl joins ours on the ri^iht (p. 181). Passing a 
de5!erted miners' house, we next reach the (^/i hr.) Hochtor of the Heiligen- 
hluter Tauern (8440'). Descent to (2 hrs.) Heiligenblut, see p. 181. 

In the Huttwinkel-Tal, 3^/^ M. above Worth, is the Frohn 
Inn (3480'; fair). To the left on the hillside is Bucheben (3750'; 
Gessl). 

A fairly easy path (red marks; guide 9 K.) leads hence over the 
Stanz (6900') and through the Anger-Tal to (6 hrs.) Hof-Gasiein (p. 166). 

The route crosses the Ache and then the Krumelbach. In front 
of us rises the Ritterkopf, to the left the Herzog Ernst and Schar- 
eck. At the (11/2 hr.) Bodenhaus (4020'; Seidl's Inn; telephone) 
we cross the Huttvrlnkcl-Bach and ascend in windings through wood 
(farther up fine view of the head of the valley with its glaciers) to 
fl'/ohr.) Kolm-Saigurn (5240'; * Hoher Tnuernhof Inn, 8 min. 
short of Kolm-Saigurn, 42 beds at 1.60-3, pens. 5-8 /T.), in 
a grand situation, with abandoned gold-mines. Telephone to the 
Zittelhaus, see p. 177. The former wire-rope railway and the engine- 
house to which it ascended are both quite out of repair. The bridle- 
path ascends to the left to the (l^/g ^r.) Neubau (7130'; to the left, 
the 'Verwaltersteig' to the Riffel-Scharte, see p. 171 ; to the right, 
the path to the Sonnblick, see p. 177) and to (8/4 hr.) the Knappen- 
haus am Hohen Goldberg (7680'; no accommodation), on the 
moraine of the Goldberg Glacier, which has covered part of the 
old mines.

The *Sonnblick (10.180') is ascended from Kolm - Salgurn in 
A^/o-bhTs. (guide 12 K., to Heiligenblut 20 /T. ) by a good path, 
which diverges to the right above the (1^/2 ^r. ) Neubau and crosses 
the tongue of the Eastern SonnhLick Glacier to the rocks of the S.K. 
arete, on which is the (2 hrs.) Roj acker- Hi'itte (9025'). The route 
then leads across the somewhat steep Vogelmaier-Ochsenkar Glacier 
or (for adepts) by the arete, to the (i'/2 hr.) Zittel-Haus (*lnn, 20 
beds at 4, and 19 mattresses at 2 K. ), on the top, "with a meteoro- 
logical station (the highest in the German Alps), inhabited through- 
out the year. Magnificent *View (panorama by Siegl). 

The descent mav be made via the SonnblicJc- Scharte and ihe Kieine 
Fleits Glacier to the (IV2 hr.) Seebichl-H^iut (p. 21il) and to ('i'/a hrs.) Heilujen-

hansl twice daily, 3 K.) and to Bad Fusch (71/2 M. ; diligence daily in summer 
in 23/4 hrs., 3K.). — Omnibus from Zell am See to Ferleiten in summer 
(July 15th-Sept. 1st) twice daily (6 a.m. and 3 p.m.) in SVz lirs. (4 7l., 
there and back IK.). — Carriage and pair from Brack to Ferleiten or 
Bad Fusch 1(3, from Zell am See 30 K. 

Bruck-Fusch ('2485'}, see p. 158. The road follows the left bank 
of the Fuscher Ache via J udendorf (inn) to (4^2 M.) the village of 
Fusch (2650'; *H6t. Imhachhorn, 50 beds at 1.50-3, board 4 /f. ,• 
Embacher, plain). Beyond the church (20 min.) the Hirzbach forms 
a fine waterfall, and 25 min, to the N.E. is the picturesque Sulz- 
harh-Klamm. 

ExcDKSioNS (guides , Qeorg Schram, Jakob Oberhollemer^ Alois Heugen- 
fiauser, and Seb. MUhlthaler ; tariff as from Ferleiten, to which the guides 
carry wraps, etc., without extra charge). A road (guide to the (rleiwitzer 
Hiitte 7 A'., unnecessary; mountain -carriage to the Hirzbach Alp 10. 
there and back 13 A'.) ascends the Hirthach-Tal, which opens here on the 
VV.. to the (2V2 hrs.) Hirzbach Alp (5605'). An attractive short-cut leads 
through the Hirzbach-Klamm (adm. 40 A.). From the Alp a good bridle- 
path ascends to the W. to the (IV2 hr.) Gleiwitzer Hiitte ((7ii80'; "Inn, 
14 beds at 4 K. and 8 mattresses), whence the 'Imbachhorn (8110'), a fine 
point of view, is ascended in Ihr. via, the. Brandl-Schartef^lib':, guide from 
Fusch 10 A'., unnecessary). The descent from the Imbachhorn may be 
made to the N.E. , via the TUrkelkopf and the Wachtberg Alp to (3 1/2 hrs.) 
Bruck-Fusch (p. 158) i or from the Brandl-Scharte by a bridle-path on the 
W. side to the Rosskopf (6560') and thence mostly through wood to the 
&I2 hrs.) Kestelfall - Alpenhaus (p. 182; guide 15 A:.). — The 'Hochtenn 
(11,060'), 5'/2-6 hrs. from the Gleiwitzer Hiitte. with guide (from Fusch 
20-21 .ff.), should be attempted by experienced mountaineers only. An 
excellent path leads to the S. from the hut for 40 min. and ascends 
(well-protected; several ladders), to the Scharte above the Spitzbreit{S2Q0'). 
Thence we follow the arete (wire-rope) of the Spitzbrettwand on its E. 
side to the (21/2 hrs.) J dger- Scharte (89&)') and then the N. arete almost 
to the top of the Bauernbrachkopf (10,265'), enjoying a continuous fine 
view (Max Hirschel-Weg' to the Moserboden, 6-7 hrs., see p. 184). We skirt 
the Bauernbrachkopf to the (1 hr.) Hirzbach- Tdrl (9980'), between the 
Bauernbrachkopf and the Hochtenn, and proceed via the Kleine Tenn and 
the N.W. arete (wire-ropes and iron pegs) to the (IV2 hr.) Hochienn- 
Schneespitee or Gletschergipfel (10,900') and to the (IV'a hr.) Hochtenn-Berg- 
tpitze (11,060), with a most magnificent view. The descent may be made 
to the E. to the Zuingkdpfi (9940') and thence either to the N.E. via the 
Schmalzgruben Alp to the (3V2 hrs.) Bar Inn (p. 179), or to the E. via the 
Watcher Bratschen to the Walchei- Alp and (31/2 hrs.j Ferleiten (p 179). A 
more difficult descent leads to the N. from the ZwingkopQ along the 
Bratschenkopf (88S5') to the Brechelboden and the (4 hrs.) Hirzbach Alp; or 
from the Brechelboden via the Streicheck-Hohe to the (41/2 hrs.) Gleiwitzer 
Hiitte. The descent on the W. side from the Hochtenn-Bergspitze via the 
Wietbach-Schartl (9945') to the Rainer-HUtte or to the Moserboden Hotel (p. 183 ; 
guide 32 A'.) is very difficult. Still more difficult, though well worth the 
exertion, is the route along the ridge vi.a the Kleine and Orosse Wiesbach- 
hom to the Maimer Hiitte (p. 180; guide to Ferleiten 45 A^.) or to the 
Heinrich-Schvaiger-Haus (p. 184; guide 50 A.).

Embach Alp (rfints.). — Another point for a walk is the Loninger Alp. 
— The Kasereck (52(X»'), ascended in 1 hr. via the Better Alp (rfmts.), 
affords a fine view; on the top is the HUdaHiitte. Hence a new path 
(marked) ascends i<> (l'/2 hr.) the top of the Ovteben (I3180'j, which cum- 
mands a tine panorama; descent to (272-3 hrs.) the village of Fnsch. — 
A more extensive panorama is obtained from the 'Kiihkarkopfl (7430';

The 'Schwarzkopf ('JOtlo'; 41/2 hrs.; guide, not indispensable, 8, with de- 
scent to Ferleiten lU K.) is a superb point of view. The marked club- 
jiath, which is somewhat fatiguing, leads to the S.E. to the Rieger Alp 
(5875'). then traverses a deiile.and ascends over debris and the OrHnkar- 
Scharte to the summit. Descent from the Griinkar-Scharte by the Durch-

weg, a path with fine views, leads from Bad Fusch to (l'/2 hr.) Ferleiten, 
skirting the wood as far as the carriage-road (numerous way-posts ; shady 
before 11 a.m.).! 

From the village of Fusch the road to Ferleiten follows the left 
bank of the Ache, crosses it, and beyond (7 M.) the Biir Inn 
(2695'; well spoken of) ascends the E. side of the valley, above 
the Bdren - Schlucht (through which runs a shady footpath; adm. 
40 /i.}, to (IOV2M.) Ferleiten (3775'; * Hotel Lukashansl, open

from the (2 hrs.j upper Durcheck Alp (.o995'; rfmts.), to which a good wind- 
ing path (in shade until 9 a.m.) ascends from Ferleiten on the E. side of 
the valley, passing the (3/4 hr.) Olockner-Bank (view). We pass through 
a gate to the left 5 min. beyond the lower alp (iGW). A good view of 
the Steinerne Meer, Watzmann, etc., is obtained beside the spring, 2 min. 
beyond the chalet. — The Schwarzkopf (see above) may be ascended from

Hiitte by the Hirzbach-Torl ; see p. 178). 

From Ferleitbx to the Glocknerhaus over the Pfandl- 
ScHARTE, 6Y2 ^rs. (guide 12 A".), somewhat fatiguing for novices, 
but interesting and not difficult (accommodation for the night at 
the Trauner Alp ; better in the reverse direction, see p. 209}. Beyond 
the Lukashansl Inn we cross (10 min.) the Ache and follow its left 
bank, passing the finger-posts pointing (20 min.) to the right to 
the Mainzer Hiitte (see below), (1/4 hr.) to the left to the Hochtor 
(p. 181 ), and (10 min.) to the right into the Kafer-Tal (see p. 179). 
About 1/4 hr. farther on we recross the Ache and ascend rather 
steeply to the (8/4 hr.) *Trauner Alp Inn (oOoo'; open June 10th- 
Sept. 30th, 25 beds at 2-5, pens. 6-8 K.; telephone), which over- 
looks tlie Kafer-Tal (see p. 179), with its waterfalls and the majestic 
mountains of the Fuscher Eiskar surrounding it (from left to right, 
Sinnabeleck, Fuscherkarkopf, Breitkopf, Hohe Docke, Bratschen- 
kopf, Grosses and Kleines "Wiesbachhorn, Hochtenn). A footpath 
ascends hence to the right (riding practicable to the glacier) via 
the Pfandlboden. To the right, far below, is the Pfandlhach. After 
21/2^^8. we reach the N. Pfandl-Scharte Glacier or Spielmann 
Glacier, and in 1 hr. more (5V2 hrs. from Ferleiten) the Lower 
Pfandl-Scharte (8745'), between the Spielmann (9935') on the left 
and the Bdrenkopf (dX26') on the right. We now cross the 5. Pfandl- 
Scharte Glacier, and then descend by a bridle-path over gravelly 
and grassy slopes to the (1 V4 li^O Glocknerhaus (p. 207). 

In dry weather we may descend through the Nassfeld to the (I hr.) 
Fram- Josef s-Hohe (see p. 207^ guide 3 JST. extra), by turning to the right 
"iO min. below the Pfandl-Scharte. 

From Fbrleitbn to the Glocknerhaus via the Hohe Gang 
ANn the Bockkar-Scharte, 9 hrs., a highly interesting glacier 
expedition, not difficult for the tolerably expert (guide 18 Tf.). 
A bridle-path (red marks; guide unnecessary), diverging to the 
right at the finger-post from the Trauner Alp route (see above), 
ascends past the Vogal Alp (4185') in easy windings to the (3*/2 hrs.) 
Mainzer Hiitte, formerly called the Schwarzenberg - Hiitte (7835'; 
Inn, consisting of two houses, 22 beds in the new one at 4-5 K., 
14 mattresses in the old one at 2 K.), finely situated on the Hoch- 
gruber Glacier, at the foot of the Hohe Dock. 

Mountain Asuknts from the Mainzer Hiitte. The 'Hohe Dock (10,990';

A new club-path diverge.^ to the right at the Eemsscbartl (p. 181) and 
ascends in windings to the first peak (10,715') and thence along the arete 
to the summit, wliich affords a magnificent view of the whole of the 
Glockner group. Descent either to the W. to the gap (10,605') between 
the Hohe Dock and the Grosse Barenkopf and thence via the Bockkar

attractive as far as the Fuscher Tori (provisions should be taken). Diverging 
to the left from the Trauner Alp route at (2/4 hr ) a tinger-prst (p. 180), we 
cross the Ache and ascend to the right by a marked path, command! nt; tine 
views. The path afterwards turns sharply to the Ictt and leads through 
the Unlere Nassfeld to the (2'/2 hrs.) Petersbrvnnen (6540'), whence we enjoy 
a superb view of an imposing amphitheatre of snow -clad peaks and 
glaciers, from the Brennkogel to the Hochtenn. We ne.xt ascend through 
the Obei-e Nassfeld to the (2/4 hr.) Fuscher Tori (7S9(V), between the Brenn- 
kogel (see below) on the right and the Barg^rkogel (8435') on the left, before 
reaching which the Gross-Glockner suddenly comes into view to the^S.W. 
We now descend to the right to the (35 min.) Fuscher Eiilacke (spring), 
skirt the ba.se of the Brennkogel, and then mount again '0 the (3/4 hr.j 
Mitter-Tdrl (7830'), and over stony slopes to (2/4 hr.) the Fuscher Wtgscheide. 
(7940'; finger-po^t), where the path from the Rauris comes up on the left 
(p. 17t>). The path here turns to the riglit and a.scends, occasionally over 
snow, to the {^l\ hr.) Heiligenbluter Hochtor (Bluler Tavern; S4i0'). the 
boundary between Salzburg and Carinthia. View limited. A bridle-path 
descends from the pass to the (20 min.) Samerbmnnen (7925'). a gofd springe 
crosses the brook, and skins the sb pe to the left, soon affording a, fine view 
of the Gross-Glockner. From the (3/4 hr ) chapel on the Kasereck (6280'). 
where the Molltal comes into view, the path descends to the left to (^4 hr.) 
Heiligenblut (p. 206). — The Brennkogel (9910*), an excellent point of view,

34. The Kaprun Valley. 



A visit to tbe *Kapruner Tal and the Moserboden from Zsii am See is 
slmngly recommended. The excursion to the Jloserbodcn and back takes a 
full day if the traveller remains until evening at the Kesselfall-Alpenhaus. 
It is better to devote IV2 day to the expedition, spending the night at the 
Ki.8solfalI-Alpenhaus : leave Zcll at 330 or 6.05 p.m., visit the Sigmuud- 
Tluin-Klaram, and view the illumination of the Kessel-Fall by electricity 
in the evening ^ next morning, before 6, vvhen the path is in shade, 
ascend to the Moserboden. — A good road ( Kaiser-Franz- Jo-seph-Strasse) 
leads to (11 M.) the Kesselfall-Alpenliau."', and thence a narrow r( ad ('Fiirst- 
Liechtenstein-Weg''), practicable for small vehicles, goe« on to the (3 hrs.) 
Moserboden. Omnibus from Zell am See (starting from the market-place) 
to the Kesselfall-Alpenhaus, thrice daily from June 1st to Sept. 20th (5 times

from the Kesselfall-Alpenhaus to the Moserboden and back 16 K.^ chair 
vehicle 20 K. 

Zdl am See, see p. 158. The road to Kaprun crosses tlie Pinzgau 
railway and passes tbe Bruckberg station (to the right, a monument 
to Emp. Francis Joseph, with relief-portrait), and then leads across 
the moor to the Mayreinod Bridge (2485'; inn) over the SaLzach. It 
then gradually ascends the mountain-slope, passes behind the half- 
ruined Schloss Kaprun, and descends to (5V2 MO the village of 
Kaprun (2505'; Zwn Kitzstemhorn, 15 beds at 1-1.20, pens. 6-7 K".; 
Neuwirt Orgler; Mitteregger), prettily situated on both banks of the 
Kapruner Ache. 

The road ('Kaiser-Franz-Joseph-Strasse') follows the right bank 
of the Ache and winds up the Birkkogel (3125'), which forms a 
barrier across the valley. Near the beginning of the ascent (I1/4 M. 
from Kaprun; I1/4-IV2 l^^.'s drive from Zell) a notice-board on the 
right indicates the path, 150 yds. in length, leading to the *Sig- 
mund-Thun-Klamm (adm. 60 h., including the Kessel Fall 1 K.'), 
a gorge Jiamed after the late Count Thun, Governor of Salzburg (d. 
1898). We leave the carriage here and regain it at the upper end 
of the gorge (1/4 hr. ; umbrellas should not be forgotten), through 
which a well-made path leads. At some points this gorge rivals 
the Liechtenstein-Klamm and the Seiseiiberg-Klamm. — The road, 
ascending in windings, crosses the ravine by means of the (6V2 ^0 
BUinski Bridge, returns 1/4 M. later to the right bank of the Ache 
(where the Klainm^path is rejoined), and leads through the open 
valley to the (9^ '0 M.) Wustelau (2870'). [To the right is the Grub- 
bach Fall;'to the Salzburger Hiitte and Krefelder Hiitte, see p. 183.] 
After |12 min. more, at the Inrh zum Kapruner Tori (29 beds at 
1 .K'.20-2, pens. 5-7 K., well spoken of), we enter the Ehenwald, and 
ascend in a wide curve, passing a small grotto called the Kaskeller 
('cheese-cellar), to (11 M.) the *Ke8Belfall-AlpenhauB (3465'; hotel

crosses the Ache and ascends in windings, at first through wood. 
From the (IV2 1'^.) Konigsstuhl^ at the top of the bill, where the 
glaciers come into view, we obtain a fine retrospect, extending to 
the Steinerne Meer. The route then follows the left bank of the 
Ache to the (20 min.l Limberg Alp (5145'; rfmts.), at the beginning 
of the Wasserfallboden{with the Wiesbachhorn on the left\ and then 
leads past the Bauem Alp (on the right bank), with a fine view of 
the mountains enclosing the Moserboden, to the (25 min. j Orgler-

Grieskogel, and Kitzsteinhorn. In the centre is the imposing Kar- 
Linyer Glacier^ descending from the Riffltor. A path on the right, 
at the foot of the W. slopes, leads past the Kaiserstein (commemorating 
a visit of Emp. Francis Joseph in 1893) to the (8/4 hr.) end of the 
glacier (6590'), where the Wiesbachhorn becomes visible next to the 
Fochezkopf. Visitors may walk on the end of the glacier without 
danger. 

A fine survey of the Moserboden is obtained from the 'H&henburg 
(6925'), a barrier which separates it from the Wasserfallboden [ascent tu 
the left from the Moserboden Hotel, V2 br.). The snow-clad Johanniaberg 
is herR seen ri-^^ing over the Riflltor. 

ExcDKSioNs FROM THE Kaprdner Tal (giiides, Jos. Hetz, Thorn, and 
Jos. Alte/iberger, Joh. Jfaierho/er, Franz 3.nA Kaspar Nusshaumer^ G. Hdller, 
P. Mitteregger., Jos. Schranz^ and 0. Mayrhofer). From the Mo;-erboden lo 
the Krefelder Hutte, 4 hrs. (guide advisable). The cl'ib-path, at first 
ascending gradually and then more steeply, leads to the (3 hrs.) Kammer- 
/Scharte (860O'), to the S. of the Hohe Rammer (8655'), then descends to the 
Schmiediuger Glacier^ which is cro?sed in 20 min. (keep to the left), and 
in another 1/2 br. reaches the Ki-efelder Hiilte (p. 183). 

The -Grosse "Wiesbachhorn (11,715'), an ascent of 5-5V2 brs. from (he 
Moserboden (guide IS K., with descent to Ferleiten 24, to the Olocknerhaus

the MoserVoden Hotel to the (21/? hrs.) Heinrich Schwaiger-Haus of the Munich 
Alpine Club (9710'-, Inn, 12 beds at 6 and 4 mattresfes at 4 K.; adm. iO h.). 
We then ascend by a club-path (wire-rope?) via the Fochezkopf (10,365') and 
the ice-covered Kaindlgrat. a sharp arete high above the Wielinger Glacier 
(steady head necessary), to the (I1/2 hr.) Wielinger Scharte (10,720'), and 
finally mount a i^teep snow-slope to the (1 hr.) summit, which is approached 
from the W and commands an imposing view. Descent by the Bockkar- 
Scharte to (he (51/2 hrs.) Franz - Josef .t • Haus (p. 208). by the Bratschenkopf 
or the Hohe Dock to the (3V2-4 brs.) Mainzer Hiilte (p. IcO), or (very difficult) 
over the Hochtenn to the Gleiwitzer HiUte (p. 118; guide 45 A'.). 

The Hocheiser (10,520'), ascended from the Moserboden in 4 brs., by a 
shooters' path acruss the Grieskogel (10.065'), is fatiguing but attractive 
(guide 14 A'., with decent over the S. arete 16, to the Rudolfs-Hiitte 21 K.). 

The Hochtenn (11,060'), ascended in 6-7 brs. (guide 10 K.) from the 
Moserboden, by the Hiischel-Weg (p. 178) across the Hirzhach-Tdrl, is diffi-

Krimml (3600'). a village with 360 inhab., occupying a sheltered 
position in a beautiful wooded valley, is frequented as a summer- 
re>ort, but is chiefly visited on account of its magnificent **Water- 
falls, the finest among the German Alps. 

The Krimmler Ache, the discharge of the great Krimml Glacier, is 
precipitated in three falls into the valley below, a depth of about 1250'. 
The finest poinf.s of view (best in the morning) have been rendered 
accessible by an eiisy and well-kept path (to the 'Scbett-Kriicke' and back 
3 hrs.; toll 40 7j. ,• small vehicles procurable). Passing the Inn zu den 
Wasserf'allen we reach (25 min.) the first point of view, where we gaze on 
the "Loweit Fall a'' it thunders into its basin at our feet and bedews us 
with its spray, in which the morning sun forms beautiful rainbow hues. 
Returning a few paces from this point, we ascend to the (10 min.) /Zej^en- 
Kanzel, which commands another and still finer survey of the lowest 
fall, and to (5 min.) a third and (G min.) a fourth point of view overlook- 
ing the same fall. We next reach the (4 min.) Riemann Kanzel, a pro- 
jecting rock with a parapet and seats, above the beginning of the lowest 
fall. Passing two points with view of the Central Fall, we reach ('/4 hr.) 
Ho/er't Hotel (42-5'; 20 beds at 1.50-3.50, pans. 6-8 A'.) on the Schonangerl, 
with a splendid view of the "Ifiyhest Fall, which descends from a height 
of about 460". From the inn we reach in 10 min. the foot of the highest 
fall, whence we proceed through wood to the *Bei'ger-Blick, the finest view- 
point. Thence a winding path, affording beautiful views, ascends to the 
(20 min.) top. Here, close to the brink of the rocks over which the Ache 
is precipitated, a bridge CSchett-Brueke" ; 4800') cro.sses the stream to the 
Tauern route (p. 190). The carriage-road crossing another bridge a little 
higher up also joins the Tauern route.

leads via the slopes ot the Plattcnkogel, the Wild Alp., and the Trisnel Alp tu 
(ca. 4 hrs.) the Zittauer Hiitte (p. 286). A better route from the inn descends 
to the point where the path ft)rks (on the right, to Ronacb, see p. 189) 
and then follows the marked path to the left through the Wild-Gerlos- 
Tal (p. 236; to the Zittauer-Hiitte, 4V2 hrs.).

are not indispensable for experts but are advisable in unsettled weather 
or in fresh snow. — The route via the Krimmler Tauern affords a mag- 
nificent view from the top of the pa«s and the Neu-Gersdorfer Hiitte, 
while the more interesting and more usual route via the Warnsdorfer 
Hiitte and the Birnliicke commands a finer survey of the glaciers of the 
Krimmler Achen-Tal. The Lausitzer Weg (p. 192) connects the two passes.

Lienz (2220')y» see p. 474. The road passes Schloss Bruck 
(p. 474), crosses to the left bank of the Isel, and then leads through 
scanty wood, leaving Ober- Lienz on the right (in the background to 
the left the Eicham OUicier in the Isel-Tal is visible). Beyond (5 M.) 
Ainet [Schneeberger; Egger) the road leads straight on along the Isel, 
passing Bad Weierbury and Vnter-Leibnig, to (8 M.) St. Johann im 
Wald (2400'; ^Vereiner's Inn), where we recross the stream. 

Excursions (guides, p. 474). The Weisse Wand or Rudnig (7970'), a 
good point of view, is ascended by a path, indicated by red marks, in 
5 hrs. (fatiguing; guide 10 A'.), via. Mic/telbach. — The Hochschober (10,665'-, 
.s hrs.-, laborious; guide IQ K.) commands a superb view. From St. Johann 
we ascend rapidly to the E. throuuh the wooded Leibnig - Tal to the 
(3V2 hrs.) Leib/itger Alp (6190') and to the (11/4 hr.) Nassfeld (7605'), and 
thence over debris to (1 hr.) the Qartel- Scharte (8575'), beside the little 
Oai'tel-See, and across the S.E. arete to the (2 hrs.) top. The descent may 
be made to the Lienzer-HiiUe in the Dehant-Tal or through the Lesack-Tal 
to Kals (see pp. 475, 203). 

The road passes (1/2 hr.) the ruined Kienburg^ and then crosses 
the Isel by a new bridge (shortest way to the Kaiser Tal, 3/^ hr. 
shorter than via Huben, see below). Farther on to the left, 10 min. 
above the road (guide-board j, is the * Glockner-Ansicht, affording a 
striking view of the Gross-Glockner. We then cross the Schwarzach 
to (12 M.) Huben (2800'; *Zur Hube, 24 beds from 2 K.'), a hamlet 
at the mouth of the Defereggen- Tal (p. 485). Ascent of the Rotten- 
kogel, see p. 195. 

From Huben to Kals through the Kaiser Tal, 3V2hrs., a cart-track, 
hardly suitable for driving. We turn to the right beyond the inn and 
traverse meadows to a (2 min.) bridge over the Isel. Then through 
wood, ascending to the left at a (20 min.) but, to Q/2 hr.) Ober-Peitchlach 
(3470'; the village remains to the left), where the route turns into the Kaiser 
Tal. Beyond this point the track is generally good, ascending slightly 
and at places skirting the profound ravine of the foaming Kaiser-Bach. 
Near (40 min.) Straniska (3605'), a magnificent view of the Gross-Glockner, 
with the Olocknerw^and and the Kodnitz and Teischnitz Glaciers, is dis- 
closed. The valley expands at (40 min.) Haslach (3600'; inn); to the right 
a fine waterfall. Farther on we observe numerous traces of the ravages 
of mud-torrents, which sometimes destroy the path in rainy weather. To 
the right, at the entrance to the Lesach-Tal (p. 203), lies the hamlet of 
Letach (in the background the Glodis and Ganot). Farther on the path 
crosses the deposits of a torrent and soon reaches (1 hr.) Kals. 

The road from Huben now gradually ascends through wood on the 
right bank of the Isel, and crosses it to — 

18'/., M. Windisch-Matrei (3200': *ZMm Rauter, 40 beds at 1-2, 
pens. 5-6^.,- Wohlgemuth, 17 beds from \K., Weisses Rossi, both 
plain but good; Schneeberger ; R. and B. at Fr. Wibmer's), the chief 
village (640 inhab.) in the Isel-Tal, the upper part of which is 
called the Virgen-Tal, near its junction with the Tauern-Tal (see 
p. 195). The Bretterwand-Bach ^ noted for its destructive floods, 
flows through the village between massive stone embankments. — 
To the N. is the (1/4 hr.) finely situated Schloss Weissenstein (3410'; 
*Pension, recommended for a stay, 77-91 K. weekly; no restaurant 
for passing tourists), with grounds and well-made paths through 
the wood.

Excursions (guides, Joh. Untersteiner. Vimenz Gamer, Alex. Wibme)\ 
Joh. and Karl Amoser, Joh. Eder. Peter Stacker, Anton Steiner., Ant. Presslaher, 
and Tobias. Josef, and Alois Trost). To the Tauernbach-Klamm (Prosegg- 
Klatnm), as far as (U/4hr. ; blue marks) a view-point below the imposing; 
Steiner Fall (see t.elovv). A new path leads hence through the Toten-Klamm 
(tunnel . TU' long) and joins the Tauern path farther up. — Past (8/4 hr.) 
the church of St. Nikolaus (restored frescoes) and the Ouggenberg Farms to 
the (3/4 hr.; guide 3 JT., unnecessary) Lukas-Kireuz (41U0'), commanding 
a view of the Lasorling and the glaciers at the head of the Virgen-Tal. 
A more extensive view is obtained from the Reiterboden (7515'), ascended 
by a club -path from the Lukas-Kreuz in S'/z brs. (guide 6 Z"., not in- 
dispensable). 

The "Kals - Matreier Tori (7235'; p. 200), a splendid point of view, 
is ascended in 3'/2 brs. ; guide unnecessary (5, to Kals 9 K.^. — The 
~K.ottenkogel (9055'; 6 hrs. ; guide 11 iT., unnecessary for experts) is reached 
in 2Y2 brs. from the Tori (path marked in red). The ascent may be made 
also from Huben (p. 194), via Ober-Peischlach and the KegeUtein, in G hrs., 
with guide. — An excellent view is obtained from the Nussingkogel (9805'; 
6 hrs. with guide, 14 K. ; faliguing but interesting). The bridle path ascends, 
partlv through wood, pa^t Schloss Weissenstein to the (3 brs.) Aeussere 
Steiner Alp (b320' ; beds). Thence to the N., passing the Ti-ugenkopfl (8595'). 
to the (3 hrs.) summit. — The Groase Muntanitz (10,600'; 7-8 brs.; guide 
il K.), the highest peak between the Dt)rfer-Tal and the Tauern-Tal, is 
faliguing but attractive. The as>.-cnt leads from the (3 hrs.) Aeussere Steiner 
Alp over steep shpes of grass and debris and finally for 2 brs. over the 
Oradotz Glacier. Descent in 41/2 hrs. to Eals (p. 202; 'guide 20 .ff.). — The 
Eendlspitze (10,125'; 7 hrs.: guide ISA'.), a difficult rock-climb, commands 
a fine view. — The Zunigspitze (9o85'; 5 hrs. ^ guide 10 A".), the E. peak 
of the ridge between the Defereg'^en-Tal and tht; Virgener Tal, is attractive. 
— The Kristallkopf (9865'; ii-7 hrs.; guide 14 K.), ascended via Zedlach and 
the Mitteldorfer Tal, ^is difficult but repaying. 

To *G8chl68S, 0-51/2 hrs. (guide 6, there and back 9, to the 
Prager Hiitte 11 and 18, overnight 20 K.; horse to theTauernhausl4, 
to Gschloss 18.^.). a fine excursion. A bridle-path ascends through 
the Tauern-Tal towards the N., passing Scfdoss Weissenstein (p. 194) 
on the right, and after 20 miii. crosses to the right bank of the 
Tauemhach, wliich here issues from the Tauernhach-Klaram (see 
above). Beyond Prose^j; (fine retrospect of Windisch-.Matrei; opposite 
us, on the left bank, the beautiful Steiner Fall, and high up the 
houses of Stein) the path reaches (i/o hr.) a chapel and, passing 
through a fine valley, returns In 1/4 hr. to the left bank of the Ache. 
About 1/2 lir. farther on, the huts of Qruhen (3725') are seen to the 
left at the mouth of the Frossnitz-Tal. Thence the path gradually 
ascends, crossing the brook twice, to the (2/4 hr.) hamlet oiRane- 
hurg (4215') and the (V2 hr.) Landeck-Scige (4365'5 Inn, 18 beds). 
at the mouth of the (E.) Landeck-TaL through which an inter- 
esting pass leads across the Granat-Scharte (9735') to the (7 hrs.) 
Rudolfs- Hiitte (see p. 186). Then acros.^ the Landeckbach and up 
the left bank of the Tauernbach, occasionally through wood, passing 
the.Hofer Alp (opposite which is the Schild Alp\ to the (II/4 hr.) 
Matreier Tanemhaus (4925'; plain inn, 14 beds). The Tauern path 
(p. 196) diverges to the right at the Ganzer Alp, I/4 hr. farther on; 
we, however, keep straight on, cross a bridge (fine fall of the Tauern- 
bach. with the Venediger in the background), and reach the rhalets

196 //. Route 37. VENEDIGER. From Lienz 

of Atisser-Gschloss and (34 hr.) Inner-Gschloss (5530'; *Schn€eberger < 
Venedigerhaus, 26 beds at 2-3 K.). The crevassed Schlaten Glacier 
here descends into the verdant valley, overshadowed by the Klein- 
Venediger, the Gross -Venediger, the Schwarze Wand, and the 
Kristallwand. To the right, separated from this glacier by the 
Kesselkopf, is the Viltragen Glacier. The chapel hewn in a huge 
Idock of gneiss is interesting. 

Excursions (guides must be brought from WindiscL-Matrei, p. 195). 
The Rote Saule t98'2o'; 3V2-4 hrs. with guide, from Gschloss QK.), not 
difficult; good view of the Venediger. The descent may be made to the 
Hollersboch-Tal (p. 187). — From Gschloss a direct path (marked) leads to 
the Felber Tauern (see below). — Over the Sandeben-Torl or the Weissenegger 
Sdiarte (guide 19 K.) to HoUersbach, see p. 187; over the Unter-Sulzbach-Tdrl 
to the Kilrsingei'-Hutle (guide 24 A'.), see p. 188. 

The ■Gross -Venediger (12,010'), 6V2-7V2 hrs. from Inner-Gschloss, an 
easy ascent for experts (couip. p. 197). Guides (one suffices for 1-3 pers.) from 
Windisch-Matrei -'4, with descent to the Kiirsinger-Iliitte 26, to the Warns- 
dorfer Hiitte 32, to the Habach-Hiitte 30 K. Beyond Inner-Gschloss we skirt 
the right bank of the Gschlossbach and then ascend by a good path over 
grassy slopes and moraines to t2V2-3 hrs.) the old Frag'er Butte (8140'-, dis- 
used) and thence in 1 hr. to the new Prager Hiitte (92C©' ; "Inn, 20 beds at 5 
and 24 mattresses at 2 K. ; adm. 40 ft.), grandly situated at the foot of the 
Hintere Kesselkopf (9f)30'-, interesting ascent of 25 min.). Hence (starting at 
3 a.m., with lanterns) we ascend along the rocky slope of the Kesselkopf 
to the Niedere Zaun (9700') and thence up slopes of neve. The Klein-Vene- 
diger (11,420') remains on the right. The Rainerhorn (p. 197) soon becomes 
visible on the S. •, then, facing us, the rounded crest of the Gross-Venediger, 
which is reached on the S.E. side in 3-3V2 hrs. from the Prager Hutte. It 
is not advisable to go to the extreme and highest point of the long snow- 
dad crest on account of the overhanging masses of snow. The *View is 
most magnificent and extensive. — Descent to Pkagraten : we traverse 
the neve of the Schlaten Glacier to the Rainer-Torl (p. 198), and cross the 
Rainer Glacier to the (IV2 hr.) Defregger-Haus (comp. p. 197; to Pragraten, 
5 hrs.). — To THE Ober-Sulzbagh-Tal or Kbimmler-'I'al, an easy descent 
by the Venediger-Scharte^ the Unter-Sulzbach Glacier, the Zwischen-Sulzbach- 
Tot-l (9445'), and the Ober-Sulzbach Glacier (the last with some broad cre- 
vasses, see p. 188), at first over gentle snow-slopes, and then (for the last 
3/4 hr.) across moraine and rock to the (3 hrs.) KUrsinger- Hutte (p. 188). 
"■ihence we descend (guide unnecessary) to (5 hrs.) Neukirchen (p. 1^8), or 
(with guide) over the Erimmier Tdrl (Gamstpitzl) to the (3V2-4 hrs.) Wavns- 
dorfer Hiitte (p. 193). 

From the Prager Hiitte over the Kestel - Tori (9360') to the Viltragen 
Glacier, and thence over the Schwarzkopf-Scharte or the Habach-Scharte to 
the (5 hr.«.) Habach- Hiitte, see p. 188 (guide from Windisch-Matrei, with as- 
cent of the Venediger, 30 K). 

From the MatreiebTadernhaus via the Felber Tadkbn to Mitteesii.l, 
71/2-8 hrs. (guide, advisable fur the inexperienced, from Windisch-BIatrei 18, 
to Schiisswend or Spital \i K.). The bridle-path (marked, stakes at the 
head of the pass) diverges from the path to Gschloss at the (20 min.) 
Gamer Alp and ascends steeply to the right, affording a fine view of the 
Schlaten Glacier and the Venediger, to the (IV4 hr.) Zirben-Kreuz (6505'), 
where it is joined on the left by a path from Gschloss; it then follows 
the left bank of the Tauernbach, past a ruined shelter-hut, to the (IV2 hr.) 
Felber or Velber Tauern (8350'; St. Poltener Hiitte projected). The view 
here is limited, but the Tauernkogel (9795'; guide Z K. extra), to the W., 
ascended from the Tauern in IV2 hr. by experts, commands a splendid 
prospect. The path crosses snow and debris and descends steeply (new 
bridle-path) on the left side of the valley, beneath the precipices of the 
Freiwand (leaving the small Plattsee on the left), to the Nassfeld, whence 
we proceed on the right side of the valley. The path then runs high on

the slope of the Schrankleiteu. passing a dilapidated shepherd's hut (tlie 
Hintevsee. 4305', lying below, to the left), to (1 hr.) a cros«, whence it descends 
to the left in steep zigzags to the SchSnau Alp and thence down the Felber- 
Tal to (1> 2 hr.) the Tavenihaus Snital (3850 and the (1/4 hr.) Tauernhaus 
Schossuieyid (3290; plain inn at each). Thence we may proceed either by 
the path through the valley or (shorter and more interesting) through the 
Schosswend-Klamml to (13/4 hr.) Mittersill (p. 186). 

From Wixdisch-Matrki to thb. Virgen-Tal. A rough road 
leads to (11 M.) Pragraten (horse 10. porter bK.^. The road crosses 
the Tauernbach and ascends through wood on the left bank of the 
Isel, via Mitteldorf^ to (5 xM.) Virgen (3910'; Zum Panzl, plain but 
good), a village with 300 inhabitants. On the hill to the right is the 
ruin of Rabenstein (4625'); to the left (S.W.) the Lasorling. 

The Lasorling (10,160'; 6-7 hrs. ; guides, Alois and Jos. Gasser, Paul 
Retinger, and Joh. Wurnitsch, 14, to St. Jakob IS Jf.) is fatiguing, but attract 
ive. From (V4 t"".) Welzelach (see below) we proceed to the S. through the 
Mullitz-Tal to the (2 hrs.) Stadler-Hiitte. on the Rainer Alp (5905'; inn); 
then round the Rossleiten-Eofie (8600') to the right into the rocky valley of 
the Olaurat, and over a slope of detritus to the S. base of the peak, wliicii 
is attained after a laborious ascent of 3'/2-4 hr.^. vis the S.W. arSte. Im- 
posing view. Descent to St. Jakob over the Prdgrater Tdrl, see pp. 198, 485. 
— The Mullitz-Torl, see p. 19^. 

The cart-track to (51/4 ^0 Pragraten leads on the right bank of 
the Isel via (2'/4 M.) Welzelach (3670'). The footpath from Virgen 
by (20 min.) Obermauer (4605'), with its old pilgrimage -church, 
running high up on the N. slope, and descending through wood to 
(50 min.) Bobojach and (40 min.) Pragraten, is preferable. 

3 M. Pragraten (4305'; Steiner ; Ploner, unpretending), 
prettily-situated village (311 inhab.). 

Mountain Ascents (guides: Thomas Berger, Johann and Joseph Sieiner\ 
Anton Krdll., Franz and Andrd Leitner, Andrd Mariacher. Ferd. Kratzer, Jakob 
Trojer, and Joh. Pichler). The Bergerkogel (8715' •, 4 hrs. with guide, 7 K.t 
commands a very fine view, particularly of the Venediger group. "We ascend 
to the S., through the Zopatnitzen-Tal, to the (2V2 hrs.) Berger See (7135'), 
and in IV2 hr. more to the top. — Similar view from the Toinig (872(J'; 
4 hrs. with guide, 8 K^, between the Lasnitz-Tal and the Kleinbach- Tal. 

The Lasorling (10,160'; 6V2-7 hrs. with guide. IG K.) may be ascended 
from Pragraten by the Prdgrater Tffrl (difficult^-, better from Welzelach and 
through the Mullitz-Tal (see ab'>ve). 

The -Gross -Venediger (12,010'; guide 18, with descent to the Prager 
Hutte orKiirsinger-Hutte 22, to the Warnsdorfer-Hutte 28, to the Habach- 
Hiitte 30 £".), a most interesting ascent of 8-9 hrs., and not difficult for 
adepts. We follow the cart-track through the valley to the W. (p. 198) and 
ascend to the right either at the (V2 hr.) guide-post beside a crucifix, 
whence a footpath leads to the bridle-path, or at (3/4 hr.) Einterbichl (4365'), 
where the bridle-path (guide-boards) into the Kleine Isel-Tal or Dor/er-Tal 
begins. Near its mouth this valley forms a deep gully; on the left rise the 
precipices of the Schliisselspitze and the Niklaskopf. The IsUtzbach with its 
numerous falls remains on the left, and farther on rushes through a wild 
subterranean gorge (the *Gumpach Fall). Near the (2 hrs.) Gumpach-Kreuz 
(6425*) a view is suddenly disclosed of the Gross- Venediger, Hohe Aderl, 
Rainerhorn, and the Dorfer, Rainer. and Mullwitz glaciers. Then past_ a 
herdsmans hut to (V2 hr.) the small JohannisHiitte, on the Dorfer Alp (6855'; 
Inn, 6 mattresses). Beyond the hut we ascend to the right over slopes of 
turf, detritus, and rock, and skirt the Kapiinizach- Kdpjl (9195') towards the 
right (the Zettalunitz Glacier lies to the right, the extensive Dorfer Glacier 
below, to the left) to the (2V2 hrs.) Defregger-Haus (9710'; Inn. 9 mattresses 
at 3 Jr., adm. 60 A.), finely situated on the Mullwitz- Aderl (10,636'), a rocky

crest between the Mullwitz and Rainer Glaciers. We now descend to the 
Rainer Glacier, and ascend across it to the Rainer-TSrl (11,245'), between 
the Hobe Aderl and the Rainerhorn, and over neve to the (2V2 hrs.) summit. 
— Descent by the Schlaten Glacier to the Prager Hiitte^ see p. 196; to the 
Kilrsinger-Hiltte or the Warmdorfer Hiitte, see pp. 188. 193. 

P.\ssES. From Prageatex to the Kursingeb-Hotte over the Ober- 
Stlzbaou-Tobl (8 hrs. ; guide IB, to Neukirchen 24 .S^.). From the (3 hrs.) 
.Toliannis-Hiitte (p. 197) we cross the gradually-sloping Dorfer Glacier to the 
(3 hrs.) Ober-Sulzbach-Torl (9600') : admirable view of the N. side of the 
Venediger group, to the left the Sonntagskopf and Schlieferspitze, to the 
right the Keeskogel. (The attractive excursion from Pragraten to the 
Tori and back takes 10 hrs. ; guide 12 K.) Descent, steep and fatiguing, 
over the Ober-Sulzbach Glacier, and then to the right, above its fall ('Tiirk- 
i?che Zeltstadf), to the (2 hrs.) Kiirsingev-HUtte (p. 188). 

To the Warnsdorfer Hutte bt the Ober-Sdlzbach-Torl and Krim.m- 
lef; ToRL (9hrs. ; guide 17 A'.). From the (6 hrs.) Ober- Suhbach-Tdrl (sec 
above) we proceed to the left across the Ober-Sulzbach Glacier, and below 
the Grosse Geiger and the Maurerkeeskopfe, to the (2 hrs.) Gamsspitzl (9500') 
above the Krimmler TSrl., whence we descend to the (3/4 br.) Waittsdorfer 
untie (p. 193). 

To THE Warnsdorker HCtte via the Maurer-Torl, without difficulty 
;ind highly attractive (9 hrs.; guide 20 K.'). The -Maurer-Tal, to the W. of 
the Kleine Isel-Tal (p. 197) and parallel with it, is well worthy of notice. 
We follow the Isel-Tal as far as (I'A hr.) Streden (p. 199), cross the 
Maurerbach, and enter the valley to the right; 8 min., the Maurer Alp; 
cross the brook to the (1/4 hr.) Goriach Alp (iTlO*); then ascend gradually 
on the left bank. As soon as the forest-zone is quitted a beautiful amphi- 
theatre of ."snow-mountains and glaciers is disclosed: to the W., the Malham- 
spitze and Gubachspitze , between them the Reggen-Torl; N.W. . the 
Simonyspitze; N.. the Maurerkeeskopfe and Grosse Geiger; E., the Grosse 
Happ and Kleine Geiger. We next pass (l^/* hr.) a shepherd'a hut (6405') 
and ascend the grass-slopes and moraine-deposits to the (IV4 hr.) tongue of 
the Maurer Glacier (74'^o'). The route traverses the gradually -ascending 
Maurer Glacier, and finallv mounts a rocky slope 100' in height, to the 
(21/2 hrs.) Maurer-Torl (10, 1*^5'), between the Hintere Maurerkeeskopf (10,880') 
and the Grosse Geiger (11,040'; a difficult ascent from the Maurer Glacier). 
Then a walk (to the left) of 1 hr. across the Ober-Sulzbach Glacier to the 
Gamsspitzl and down to the [}/i hr.) Warnsdorfer Hiitte (p. 193). 

Reggen-Torl. From the upper part of the Maurer-Tal we ascend to 
the left, over the slopes of the Dellacher Keesflecken, to the Simony Glacier., 
and follow the margin of the S. arm of the glacier, steep at places, to the 
(51/2-6 hrs. from Streden) Reggen-T6rl (10,030'), a pass between the Malham- 
spitze and the S. Gubachspitze. Fine survey of the Dreiherrnspitze and the 
Umbal Glacier. Gradual descent of 3 hrs. by the latter to the Klara-Hutte 
in the Umbal -Tal (p. 199). Those bound for Prettau may go direct from 
the Reggen-Torl to the (IV2 hr.) Hintere Umbal- Tori (p. 200) and the (li/a hr.) 
Lenkjochl-HUtte (p. 483; guide to Kasern IS K.). 

The Defereggen-Tal may be reached from Pragraten by the Defer- 
egger Tori, the Prdgrater Tori., or the Bachlenke. The path (marked) to 
the first (uninteresting ; to St. Jakob 8 hrs. ; guide 15 K.) ascends from 
(1 hr.) Welzelach (p. 197) to the S. through the Mullitz-Tal to the (2 hrs.) 
atadler - Hiitte (p. 197) and along the S.E. base of the Lasorling (p. 197). 
It then turns to the left, crosses the brook, and ascends abruptly to the 
(2V2 hrs.) Deferegger Tori or Mixllitz - Tori (8585'), whence we obtain a 
view of the Venediger behind us. Descent to the right into the wooded 
Froditz-Tal, to (2 hrs.) Bruggen and (1 hr.) St. Jakob (p. 485). — From 
Pragraten to St. Jakob over the Prftgrater T6rl (9240'), 8 hr.«. (guide 15 A'.), 
fatiguing. We ascend the Lasniizen - Tal by a marked path to the (5 hrs.) 
pass, S.W. of the Lasdrling, which may be scaled hence by experts in 
2 hrs. (see p. 197); descent into the Togisch-Tal and to (3 hrs.) St. Jakob 
(p. 485). — The route oyer the Bachlenke is finer^ hrs. ; marked pathj

guide, not indispensable, 15 A'.). From Prigraten we ascend the valley to 
the (IV2 hr.) Pthell Alp (see below), above which we turn to the left, cross 
the Isel , and mount through the picturesque Grosshach-Tal . with its 
waterfalls, to the Lower Alp. Thence a steep ascent (on the left a line 
waterfall) to the Upper Alp. and over slopes of turf and debris to the (3',;; hrs.) 
Bachlenke (or Trojer-Torl ; 85T5'), between the Gosleswand and the Graue 
Wand. Shortly before reaching the top of the pass we enjoy a beautiful 
retrospect of the Venediger and Dreiherrnspitze. We descend, at first turn- 
ing to the right and passing the small Bodensee on the left, into the upper 
Trojeralm-Tal (on the left the Alplesspitze and Seespitze), follow the steep 
grassy slopes on the left side of the valley (path soon improving) to the 
Upper and Lower Trojer Alp (5960'), and traverse the picturesque and narrow 
valley to (3 hrs.) St. Jakob. 

The path to the Umbal-Tal, or highest region of the Isel-Tal 
(from Pragraten to the Klara-Hiitte 4 hrs.; guide, unnecessary for 
adepts, 7 K,') leads past the Bichl, crossing the Islitzbach (p. 197) 
at the houses of (8/4 hr.) Hinterbichl, to (25 min.) Streden (4605'), 
the last farm, at the mouth of the Maurer-Tal (p. 198; in the 
background rise the Maurerkeeskopfe). At the Pehtll Alp (4975'), 
V2 hr. farther on, the path crosses the Isel (to the left the fall of 
the Kleinbach, 330 ft. high; 10 min. farther on the beautiful fall 
of the Orossbach, see above). A steeper ascent, through wood, 
passing a fine fall of the Isel on the left , brings us to a higher 
region of the valley. After 1 hr. we cross the Isel by the Lessensteg 
(6120') and follow a narrow path on the steep grassy slopes of the 
left bank, passing a (1/2 hr.) stone hut (6*245'). To the left opens 
the Daber - Tal (p. 200) , at the head of which rise the Toten- 
karspitze and the Panargenspitze, with their glacier; facing us is 
the Rotspitze. The path now crosses a rocky barrier to the (3/^ hr.) 
Klara-Hutte of the Prague Alpine Club (6900'; Inn, 3 beds at 5, 
and 10 mattresses at 2K.; adni. during the day 40ft.). About V2 hr. 
higher the magnificent Umbal Glacier (not visible from the hut) 
descends into the valley. 

MoCNTAiN Ascents (guides' tariff from Pragraten, see p. 197). The 
*Dreihermspitze (11,500'-, 5V2-6hrs.; guide 22 K.) is fatiguing, and fit only 
for experienced mountaineers. We first cross the lower and nearly level 
part of the Umbal Glacier (I1/2 hr.), then ascend the grassy and rocky slopes 
of the Schlaitner Keesfiecken to the upper region of the glacier, and cross 
the latter to the right, below i\xe Althaus- Schneide. Lastly a steep ascent 
to a rock projecting towards the S.W. , which we mount (with caution 
owing to its friable nature) to a snowy plateau immediately below the 
summit, whence we reach the top by traversing a snowy arete. The descent 
may be made by the Hintere Umbal-Torl to the Lenkjochl-EuUe and to Katern 
(p. 483; guide 24 or 28 A'.), or by the crevassed Lahner Glacier to the Birn- 
liicken-Bulte (p. 193). 

The •Rotspitze (Welitz; 11,470'; 5-6 hrs.; guide 18, with descent to the 
Lenkjcichl-Hiitte 24. to Kasem or Jagdhaus 26 K.), is also toilsome. The 
Isel is crossed to the W. of the Klara-Hiitte, and the steep grassy slopes 
are ascended in zigzags, the end of the Welitz Glacier being avoided by 
keeping to the left. The neve of the glacier is then ascended (rather steep) 
in the direction of the gap between the Daberspitze and the Rotspitze, 
before reaching which we ascend to the right across the S. arete to the 
broad rocky summit. — Descent across the N.W. arete (wire-ropes) and 
the Rot Glacier to the (2 hrs.) Lenkjbchl- Hlitte fp. -183); or to the S.W. 
across the Welitz-Seharte (10,545') and the Schwarzarh Glacier to the (3V2 brs.) 
Jagdhaut Alp (see p. 481; for experts only).

ascended from the Klara-Hiitte. 

Passes. Ovek the XJmbal-Torl to Kasern. 6 hrs., a remarkably fine 
route, somewhat trying (guide 15, to the Lenkjochl-Hiitte 12, to the Birn- 
liicken-Hiitte 16, to the Neu-Gersdorfer Hiitte 18 A'.). From the Klara-Hiitte 
we ascend the Umbal-'Tal for about 3/4 hr., then (finger-post) turn to the left 
and traverse the Umbal Glacier (V2-V4 ^r.), the first part only being some- 
what steep. On the W. side of the glacier we ascend abruptly over debris 
iind rock and finally over snow to the (2 hrs.) Vordere TJmbal-Torl (9605'), to 
the S. of the Ahrner-Kopf {\^fi\fy:, ascended from the Tori in 25 min. ; repay- 
ing). During the whole ascent we enjoy magnificent views of the Umbal 
Glacier, the Dreiherrnspitze, Simonyspitze, Gubachspitze, and Malham- 
spit/.e; from the top the long chain of the Zillertal Alps becomes visible 
to the W. Descent by the Windtal to Kasern (2V2 hrs.), see p. 488; or, 
better, over debris and the crevassed Windtal Glacier to the (IV4 hr.) 
LenkjocM-Hutte (p. 483 1. — The passage of the Hintere Umhal-Torl (9350') 
also is free from danger, and presents no difficulty when the snow is in 
good condition (guide to Kasern 15, to the Birnliicken- Hiitte 16 K.). We 
cross the Umbal Glacier and ascend a snowy slope, between the Schlaitner 
Kee^/lecken and the Ahrner-Kopf, to the (2Vj hrs.) Tori. Descent by the 
Win'd/al, at first steep, to (3 hrs.) Kasern (p. 483), or (preferable) to the 
left across the R6t Glacier to the (2 hrs.) Lenkjdchl-Hiitte (p. 4'^'3). Travellers 
bound for Krimml proceed fmm the Hintere Umbal-Torl via the Althaus- 
Schneide and the Lahner Glacier direct to the Birnliicken- Hiitte (p. 193). 

Laborious routes (for experts only; guide 16 A".) lead through the wild 
Daber-Tal (p. 199) and over the Rotenmann - Tbrl OSSO*), between the 
Rotenmannspitze (10.090') and the Totenkarspiize (10,230'), to the (5 hra. from 
the Klara-Hiitte) Seehach Alp (p. 486). or over the Schwarze Tori (9650'), 
to theN., between the Rotenmannspitze and the Torlspifze (10,015'), to the 
Hchwarzach-Tal and the (5 hrs.) Jagdhaus Alp (p. 481). 

38. From Windisch-Matrei to Kals and Heiligenblut. 

To Kals from Windisch-Matrei the most attractive route is by the 
Kals-Afatreier Tori (bridle-path, to the Tori 3-3V2, to Kals 5-51/2 hrs. ; guide 
9 jr., unnecessarv; horse to the Tori 12 K). — From Lienz to Kals, 7 hrs. ; 
road as far as Huben (p. 194); then a bridle-path through the Kaiser Tal 
(p. 194). — From Uttendorf in the Pinzgau to Kals over the Kalt-Stuhacher 
Tauern. 12 hrs., an interesting route (better in two days, with a night at 
the Rudolfs-Hiitte. see p. 185; guide 'XI K.). — From Heiligenblut ta Kals 
by the Berger-Torl, Vh hrs. (see p. 204). 

Windisch-Matrei (3200'), seep. 194. Passing the post-office we 
ascend the pilgrimage -path, go straight past the (20 min.) chapel, 
and a cross, and ascend to the right at the (^/a^^-) houses of Klaunz. 
Farther on we pass (40 min.) a guide-post and continue to ascend, 
through wood and past a small chapel, keeping ahove the gorge of 
the Bretterxuand-Bach. In 40 min. we cross the Goldriedbach and 
in 25 min. more emerge from the wood. The path becomes steeper 
and ascends to the right over turf, crosses the brook twice (above, 
the inn at the Tori comes in sight), and mounts in zigzags, partly 
through wood, to (1 hr. ; 3-3V2 ^^s. from Windisch -Matrei) the 
*Kal8-Matreier Tori (7235'; plain inn). Splendid view of the 
Venediger, Glockner, and Schober groups (comp. the annexed 
Panorama).

202 JL R. 38. —Map, p. 196. KALS. From W.-Matrei 

A much finer view is obtained from the second height, to the S. of the 
Tori, with a trigonometrical column, easily reached by following the crest 
of the hill for 1 hr. (guide unnecessary). —Ascent of the Rottenkogel i%5b' ;, 
red way-marks), in 2V2 hrs., see p. 195. 

The path to (I3/4 hr.) Kals descends towards the left and 
then leads through wood. At the bottom of the valley, avoiding the 
path to the left which leads first to the Grossdorf, a circuit of 
1/4 hr., we hold to the right straight towards the church at the 
lower (S.) end of Kals (better enquire about the way before leaving 
the Tori). Then, descending to the Kaiser Bach, we cross the 
bridge, and descend along the left bank either to the right to the 
Glocknerwirt, or ascend to the left to the Oberwirt. 

Kals (4335'; Glocknerwirt Johann Oroder, 30 beds at 1 K. 60 h., 
plain but good, with the interesting 'Glocknerbuch', containing 
accounts of early ascents from Kals; Oberwirt '■Zum Alpenverein\ 
30 beds at 1 ^. 8O/1.), a village of 1046inhab., pleasantly situated 
in a broad basin, is a good starting-point for expeditions among the 
Glockner group. 

Guides: Andrd Hiitter, Johann and Alois Kerer, Joh. Unterweger, Josef 
and Joh. Oroder, Rup. Entstrasser, Rup. Figer, Peter Schneider, Paul and 
Stefan Schnell, Veit Oberlohr, and Peter Seeber. An extra charge of 3 K. is 
made when a night is spent in the Erzherzog-Johann-liiitte on the Adlers- 
ruhe, and of 4 Z'. when a night is spent in the Glocknerhaus on the 
Elisabethruhe, the Haritzer-Haus, or the Kudolfs-Hiitte. 

The ascent of the *Gross-Glockner (12,460'; to the Stiidl-Hutte 
by a marked bridle-path 4-41/2 hrs., to the top d^/2-^ hrs. more; 
f^ulde 21, with descent by the Hofmannsweg to the Glocknerhaus 
30 A'.) from Kals is shorter and less difficult than that from Heiligen- 
blut (p. 208), but is recommended to experts only. A bridle-track leads 
past the church and ascends the Kodnitz-Tal to the farms of (1 hr. 
10 min.) Groder (5640'), where we take to the left. In 25 min. we 
cross the Kodnitzbach (guide-board indicating the route to the right 
to the Berger-Torl, p. 204). Beyond the (40 min.) Jorgen-Hutte 
(6425') a club-path (leaving the Luckner-Hxitte on the right, see 
p. 203) ascends the slope of the Freiwand to the (2^2 hrs.) Studl- 
Hiitte, on the Vanitscharte (9195'), erected by Hr. Studl of Prague 
in 1868 and subsequently enlarged (/wn, 7 beds at 4, and 15 mat- 
tresses at 2 K.y Fine view of the Ampezzo Dolomites to the S.W., 
beyond the Kaiser Tori. If we ascend the Freiwand to the S. for a 
short distance, we obtain a view of the peak of the Glockner to the 
N., apparently quite near; to the N.E. are the Kodnitz Glacier and 
the Adlersruhe; to the W. is the Teischnitz-Tal, with the Teischnitz 
Glacier. — From the Stiidl-Hiitte there are two routes to the sum- 
mit. The old route ('Alte Kaiser Weg') ascends to the N., over 
de^bris, to the Teischnitz Glacier, crosses the ridge of the Luisengrat 
to the Kodnitz Glacier, and ascends the latter, which becomes steep 
towards the end, to the (21/4 hrs.) Erzherzog-Johanii-Hutte on the 
Adlersruhe (11,365'; Inn, 70 mattresses at ^ K.), commanding a 
magnificent view. Ascent from the Adlersruhe, over snow and rock, 



to HeUiyenblut. KALS. Map, p. 196.-11. R. 38. 203 

to the (l-I V* hr.) top of the Klein-Glockner (12,3500. On the N.W. 
side of this peak we descend steeply about 25-35' (facilitated by 
iron pegs and a wire-rope) to the Ohere Glockner-Scharte, a sharp 
snow ridge, about 30' long and 1-2' wide, between the Little and 
the Great Glockner (descending to a depth of about 4300' on the 
right to thePasterze, and of 2600' on the left to the Kodnitz Glacier), 
the passage of which requires a steady head, but is facilitated by wire- 
ropes. Lastly a steep ascent over rock (wire-rope and pe;;s, useless 
when mu<h fresh snow has fallen^ to the summit of the Gross- 
Glockner (25 min. from the Klein-Glockner). — On the summit are 
a wooden pyramid, used in 1879 in connection with the measurement 
of latitude, and an iron cross about 8' high, erected by the Austrian 
Alpine Club. The **VrEW is almost unrivalled in extent and magni- 
ficence (panorama in the Stiidl-Hiitte). Towards the W. it extends 
to the Rhaetikon chain and the Silvretta; on the S.W., to the Bernina 
and Adamello; S., to the Adriatic Sea, whifh is sometimes visible 
as a bright streak on the horizon; S.E., the Terglou ; E., the Carpa- 
thians; N.E.. the Moravian and Bohemian Mts.; N,, the Bavarian 
plain, as far as Ratisbon. 

The 'Neue Kaiser Weg' or Stiidlweg, the most interesting ascent for 
adepts (guide 21 K ; climbing-irons necessary, thick woUen gloves advisable), 
ascends the Luisengrat (p. !a)2), between the Teischnitz and Kddnitz Glaciers, 
with the aid of wire-ropes and in>n stanchions attached to the rocks (to 
the top 3-3V2 hrs.)- This ronte avoids the Klein-Glockner and the Scharte, 
hut is impossible in certain states of the snow and is fit only for experienced 
climbers with steady heads. 

Another route, the 'Neueste Kaiser Weg'' or Miirztaler Steig (for 
climbers with steady heads only) ascends the Kodnitz-Tal from the (I hr. 
10 min.) Groder (p. 202). crosses the stream above the Jorgen-HHtte (p 202), 
and reaches (l'/2 hr.) the Luckner-Eiitte (7375' ; accommodation, 4 beds). Hence 
we ascend to tlie riizht by the 'Miirztaler Steig', on the slope of the Lange 
Wand and the Blaue Kdpfe (wire-rope and iron pegs), high above the Kodnitz 
Glacier, to (3V2-4 hrs. ; direct but very steep) the Ersherzog-Johann-HHtteip. 202). 

Descent by the Hofmannsweg to the (3 hrs.) Franz-Josef s-Eaut (recom- 
mended to adepts when the snow is in good condition), or through the 
LeUer-Tal to (G hrs.) Eeiligenblut. see p. 209. — In 1879 the t^^ross-Glockner 
was ascended by Hr. Grciger of Vienna for the first time by the N.W. arete 
(Untere Glockner-Scharte or Teischnitz-Scharte, 11,885' i very difficult). The 
direct ascent from the Pasterze to the Obere Glockner-Scharte (see above) 
was for the first time accomplished by the Marquis Pallavicini in 1876 
(see p. 206) and for the second time by Hr. Pilhvax of Vienna. The la.«t 
mentioned ascended the Glockner direct from the Kodnitz Glacier in l'^91 
and direct from the Teischnitz Glacier via the W. flank in 1906. 

^Romariswandkopf (11.530'; 7 hrs.: guide iS K.). From the (41/2 hrs.) 
Stiidl-Hiitte we ascend to the Teischnitz Glacier, which we cross in the 
direction of the Glocknerwand. We then cross the (1 hr.) Gramul- Sattel 
to the Frusnitz Glacier, and ascend to the (U/? hr.) top without much diffi- 
cultv by the snowv arete. Descent across the Pasterze to the Obencalder 
Hiitie or the (31/2 hrs.) Franz-Josef-Eaus (p. 207). 

The Schonleiten (9210'; 4 hrs. , with guide), the W. spur of the 
Schober group, between the Kodnitz -Tal and the Lesach-Tal, which 
presents no difficulty, affords a splendid view of the Glockner. Schober, and 
Venediger groups. — The Hochschober (10.665'; 71/2 hrs. ; guide iSK.) is 
ascended via Ober-Lesach, the (2V2 hrs.) Lesacher Alp (5990*; night-quarters), 
ihe Rolf-Femer, and the Schober -Tori (9525'); fatiguing but interesting 
(comp. p. 475). — The Glttdis (10,515'; 5 hrs.; guide 18 £^.), ascended vii

the Lesacher Alp and the Kalttr Tori (9195'), is difficult also. — The Groase 
Rote Knopf or "Wanschuss (10,815' ; 57= hrs. ; guide 22 K.), the highest sum- 
mit of the Schober group, is ascended via the Lesacher Alp and the Scharll 
Cdifficult). — -Rottenkogel (9055'; 4-41/2 hrs. ; puide 10, to Windisch-Matrei 
15 A'.), see p. 195. — The Grosse Muntanitz (10,600' i 6-7 hrs. ; guide 18, to 
Windisch - Matrei 20 K.), ascended via the GradStz Glacier^ is a fine point 
oi view, but fatiguing; see p. 195. 

Over the 'Kals - Matreier Tori (7240") to Windisch-Matrei (41/2-0 hrs.; 
guide, 9Z., not indispensable), see pp. 202, 200. The noble view from the 
Tcirl amply repays a visit to it (5 hrs. there and back •, guide 5 K.)^ even 
by those who do not proceed to Matrei. 

To Uttendorf via the Kaiser Tauern (8240), 12 hrs. (guide 22, to the 
Uudolfs-Hiitte \Q K.), see p. 186; to the Moserboden via the Kaiser Tauern 
and the Kapruner Tori (12 hrs. \ guide 20 A.), see p. 185. 

From Kals to Hbiligbxblut over the Berger Torl, 71/2 hrs. ; 
l>;itli n)arked ; guide (13 KJ) not indispensable for experts. A bridle- 
track leads past the church, and ascends the Kbdnitz-Tal to the (1 hr. 
10 min.) farms of Groder (5640') ; 25 min. farther up the path crosses 
the Kodnitzbach, and ascends abruptly to the right (guide-post; path 
to the left to the Stiidl-Hiitte, p. 202) over Alpine pastures to thfe 
(21/2 lirs.) broad saddle of the Berger -Tori (8680'), on which is 
the Glorer-Hutte (Inn, 7 beds). Admirable view: S. the Schober, 
S.W. the Deferegger Mts. and the Dolomites, W. the Hochgall, 
E. the Gastein Mts. with theHocharn, Sonnblick, etc. In descending 
we obtain a view of the Leiter Glacier, Adlersruhe, and Glockner 
to the left. The path descends steeply into the Leiter-Tal (with the 
Soliwert and the Leiterkopfe to the N.) and crosses the brook to the 
(lV4hr.) Upper and(S mm.')the Lower Leiter-Hutte (6615'); 25 min. 
farther down it forks (to the left to the Glocknerhaus, see below); 
here we cross the brook again and ascend to the Trog Alp (6120'), 
beyond which the path descends through wood. Finally we cross 
the Gossnitzbach (Gossnitz Fall, see p. 206), then the Moll, and 
ascend again to (IV2 ^r) Heiligenblut. 

The Peischlach-Tdrl (8240'), to the S. of the Berger -Tori, is not re- 
commended (guide 14 AT) on account of the defective path. 

Travellers bound for the Franz- Josef sH6he or Ferleiten save a day by 
proceeding to the left at the bifiircation 26 min. below the Leiter -Hiitte 
(see above), by the Ohere Leiter -Weg (guide not indispensable) crossing a 
natural rock bridge, direct to the (2 hrs.) Glocknerhaus (see p. 207; from Kals 
to this point 7-71/2 hrs. ; guide 12, to Ferleiten via the Pfandl-Scharte 24 A.). 

39. From Dolsach to Heiligenblut. 

Fkom the South, Heiligenblut is most conveniently reached from 
Dolsach in the Pustertal by the road via Winklern (8 hrs.). Diligence 
from Dolsach railway-station to Heiligenblut (2372 M.) daily in summer in 
7 hrs. (6 A. 40 h.; 11 lbs. of luggage free). Omnibus (from the Tiroler Hof)

Fbom theNokth, the most attractive and frequented route to Heiligen- 
blut leads through the Fuscher-Tal and over the Pfandl- Scharte (p. 180) or 
the Bockkar-ScharU (p. 181). — From Rauris over the Hochtor of (he 
Heiligenbltit-Rauriser Tauern. see pp. 176, 181 ; over the Sonnblick, see p. 177. 

By railway (in 8 min.) from Lienz to (3 M.) Dolsach (2145'; 
Rail. Restaurant ; Putzenb acker's Hotel, 5 rain, from the station), see 
p. 603. The village of Dolsach (2295'; Tirolerhof. 50 beds at 2-3, 
pens. 6-8 A'.) lies 1^/4 M. to the N. of the station. The church con- 
tains an altar-piece (Jloly Family ) by Defregger (born near Dolsach 
in 1835). — The road ascends in wide curves, which maybe shorten- 
ed by red-marked paths, commanding fine views of the valley of the 
Drave, Lienz, and the Lienz Dolomites, to (3^4 ^L) the hamlet of 
Iselsberg (3645')) to which a red-marked path also leads via Nuss- 
dorf and Debant in 8I/2 lirs. Beyond (5 M.) the Inn zur Wacht we 
cross the boundary of Carinthia, and reach (5^ o M.) the top of the 
Iselsberg (3950'; ""Hot. Defreggerhof, 50 beds at 1.60-2 K.). Thence 
the road descends to (6 M.) the *II6t,-Pens. Bad Iselsberg (90 beds 
at 1.80-2.20 K.) and through wood to — 

8M. Winklern (3125'; Post, good; Geiler, 20 beJs at 1.10- 
1.60 A"., well spoken of; Trojer; rooms at Villa Merzinger}, a vil- 
lage with 359 inhab., finely situated high above the Mblltal. 

Excursions. The Geiersbuhi (6230'), ascended via St. Benedikt in 2'/2- 
3 hrs,, commands a view of the Schober group, the Lienz Dolomites, etc. 
— A still finer view is obtained from the 'Ederplan (6505') which is easily 
ascended in 31,2 hrs. The bridle-path diverges to the left, after 1/2 M., 
from the Iselsberg road and ascends round the E. slope of the Stronachkopf 
to ZwUchenhergen and the (3 hr.s,) Anna Refuge Hut (6430'; 4 beds, 9 mat- 
tresses), 10 min. below the summit. — A marked path leads from the 
Ederplan to the (2 hrs.) top of the Zietenkopf (SUO*; comp. p. 475). 

The road descends into the valley and crosses the Moll. At 
(I23/4 M.) Mortschach (3050'; Wallner; Josef Kaponig. plain but 
good) the Asten-Tal opens to the right; at (14V2 ^0 Stamp fen, 
where we recross the stream, the Wangernitz-Tal (p. 475) diverges 
to the left. — 171/2 M. Dollach (3360'; Ortner, 34 beds at i-2K.; 
Posf), a village with 319 inhab., at the mouth of the Zirknitz- 
hach (p. 177). Higher up in the the gorge (marked path) are the 
(10 min.) Zirknitz Grotto and (V4hr. farther on) the *Zirknitz Fall, 
165' in height. 

Excursions (guides, Joh. Schmidl, Joh. Plossnig, and Joh. Zlobl). The 
•Stellkopf (y340'), which affords a splendid survey ot the Goldberg, 
Glockner, and Schober groups, may be ascended from the Steinerkaser (5695') 
in the Klein-Zirknitz-Tal, via the" Kluid- Scharte (8200') and the Stell-Eohe 
(9220'), in 3 hrs. (guide 12 K.); or from Dollach via the Goritzer-Torl (8045'), 
to the N. of the Mauerkopf, the Wutchgang (old gild-mine), and the Kluid- 
Scharte in 6 hrs. (rather fatiguing). — The Petzeck (10,770'), the E. summit 
of the Schober group, ascended hence in 7 hrs. (tuilsome; guide 22 iBT.), 
through the Graden-Tal to the Gvaden Alp (5605'; hay-beds), and thence 
via the Oraden Glacier and the Petzeck - Sdiarte (,%>'^) , also commands a 
magnificent view. The descent may be made via the Graden- Scharte (9105') 
to the Liemer Hiitte (p. 475; guide 26 Z.), or from the Petzeck-Scharte to 
the Wangernitz Lakes (7915') and through the Wangernitz-Tal to Stampfen (see 
above). — An easy and interesting ascent is that of the Stanziv^rurten (8870'; 
4V2-5 hre. with guide, lO^".), via the Zirknitzbauer, the Eulmer Alp, and the 



206 JL Route 39. HEILIGENBLUT. From Dblsach

to Heiligenblut 22, to Kolm-Saigurn 24, over the Riflelscharte to Bockstein 
28^.) is not difficult for experts. A marked path leads through the Zirknitz- 
Tal via the Hohe Briicke and past the Nine Springs (waterfall) to Ihe (2 hrs.) 
Unterkater Alp (52iU'j, and then ascends to the left via the Bochkaser to 
(41/2 hrs.l the Brettscharle (9195'), and across tlie Vogelmaier- Ochsenkar 
Glacier \o (li/shr.) the Zittet-Haus (p. 177). — Over the Klein- Zirknitz-Scharte

(9-10 hrs.; guide 18 .K".), see pp. 613. 177; via Albiizen and the Schohev-Torl 
(7730') to Auster-Fragant (7-8 hrs.; guide 16 .ff.), see p. 614. 

Beyond Dollach the road reaches (19V2 ^^^0 PutschaU (3470'), at 
the entrance to the wild Graden-Tal (p. 205), crosses to the 
right bank of the Moll, and returns to the left bank 11/4 M. farther 
on. On the left (3/4M.) is the Jung fern sprung, a waterfall 425' high. 
At (23 M.) the hamlet of Pockhorn (3565'; Kramser), with a Gothic 
church, the summit of the Gross-Glockner appears. The Molltal here 
appears to be terminated by a wall of rock 330' high, called the 
Zlapperriegel, over which the Moll dashes into a wild gorge (foot- 
path to the fall, rejoining the road higher up). The new road as- 
cends in windings to the right (the old road is shorter).

Heiligenblut (4195'), a small village (165 inhab.) in a green 
Alpine valley, overlooked by the bold snow -pyramid of the Gross- 
Glockner, derives its name from a phial of the 'Holy Blood' said to 
have been brought from Constantinople by St. Briccius. This relic 
is now preserved in a tasteful tabernacle in the church, a building 
of 1483 which contains also a handsome carved altar, by Wolfgang 
Mailer (1520), and the tomb of St. Briccius (in the crypt). In the 
churchyard are the graves of the Marquis Pallavicini (p. 203) and 
Ilerr Crommelin, with the guides Ranggetiner and Rubesoier, who 
all lost their lives on the Glocknerwand in 1886.

on (through the courtyard of the inn and ascend to the left), is the best 
point of view. — To reach the Gdssnitz Fall (3/* hr.) we follow the bridle- 
path to Kals (p. 204) as far as the (10 min.) opposite bank of .the Moll, 
and then ascend to the left by a i)leasant path through wood to the fall 
of the Oossnitzbach (330' high). — To the Leiter Fall (li|-^ hr.), see p. 207.

to Heiligenblut. GLOCKNERHAUS. 11. Route 39. 207 

The excursion to the *Fbanz- Josbfs-Hohb is very attractive 
and should certainly not be missed: to the Glocknei-Haus 3-3V2^rs.; 
thence to the Franz-Josef-Haus 1 hr. ; descent to Heiligenblut 3 hrs. ; 
guide unnecessary; horse 12^.,- one-horse carriage to the Glockner- 
Haus20, there and back 2-5, \%ith spending the night 3'2K., two-horse 
32, 44, and 50 K. The Kaiserin-Elisaieth-Hochstrasse [1 M. long; line 
views) ascends in numerous windings (short-cuts), crosses the 
Guttal beyond the Gipper Alp (5350'), reaches (^2^/2 ^rs. ; 51/4 M. 
from Heiligenblut) the top of the Pallik (^6400'; Schober's Inn, bed 
1 K. 60 /i.), with a line view, and finally makes a bend into ihe 
Moll-Tal to the (1 hr.; 7 M.) Glockner-Haus. The Haritzersteig di- 
verges from the road to the left at (10 min.) the first bend ('HimmltT- 
Schleife') and gradually ascends along the hillside to the (1 hr.) 
Sattelalm (4990'), whence a fine retrospect is obtained of the MoU- 
tal. A few paces farther on the Pasterze Glacier comes in sight. The 
path now ascends over Alpine pastures to the (20 min.) Briccius 
Chapel (5290'), opposite the fine Leiter Fall (42o' high). After a 
rapid ascent of 3 4 hr. we reach the Marx-Hutte, whence a marked 
path to the Leiter Fall diverges to the left. Here the Glockner and 
the Franz-Josef-Haus are tirst disclosed to view. We next mount 
a rocky saddle by zigzags to the Base Platte and the (1/2 hr.) Vntere 
Brettboden (6880') and proceed across Alpine pastures to the (Y2 ^^r.) 
Glockner-Haus on the Elisabethruhe (lOio'), affording an excellent 
view of the Pasterze Glacier and the Glockner {*Inn^ 13 R. with 36 
beds at 2 K. 40 /»., separate room with two beds 8 K.; adm. by day 
40 ft.,- telephone to Heiligenblut). 

The path now crosses the Pfandlbach (p. 180), then ascends to 
the left to the (1 hr.) Kaiser Franz-Josef-Haus (*P. Haritzer's Inn, 
30 beds at 1 K. 60 /i. -4 K., and 15 mattresses at 1 A'.) and (5 min.) 
the **Franz - Josefs - Hohe (7935'). on the slope of the Freiioand, 
which commands a complete survey of the huge Pasterze Glacier 
(6 M. in length by 1 M. in width; area nearly 8000 acres). Immed- 
iately before us towers the Gross -Glockner, with its two peaks; 
to the left of it are the Adlersruhe, Hohenwartkopf, Kellersberg, 
Schwerteck, Schwert, and the three Leiterkcipfe; to the right of 
the Glockner rise the Hofmann-Spitze, Glocknerwand, Teufelskamp, 
Romariswandkopf , Schneewinkelkopf , Eiskogele, L'ntere Oeden- 
winkel-Scharte, Johannisberg, Obere Oedenwinkel - Scharte, and 
Hohe Riffl; the three rocky peaks in the upper basin of the Pasterze 
are the Kleine, Mittlere, and Hohe Burgstall. A slab of marble on 
the Franz-Josefs-Hohe, protected by an iron grating, is to the memory 
of Karl Hofmann of Munich, a distinguished mountaineer, who fell 
at Sedan in 1870. 

In order to reach the actual glacier travellers are recommended to extend 
their walk to the Bo/manns- HUtte (guide desirable; from the Glockner-Haus 
and back, 5 E.). The path descends a little, skirting and traversing the 
moraine, then crosses the Mittlere Pasterzenboden, a nearly level part of 
the glacier, and finally ascends to the (IV4 hr.) Hofmanns-Hiitte (8015'), 



208 1I.R.39. — Map,p.2n6. GROSS-GLOCKNEK. From Dolsach 

the Oamsgrube^ a hollow at the base of the Fuscherkarkopf. The hut, 
erected by Archduke John, and subsequently restored by Hr. Hofmann and 
Hr. Stiidl, was the starting-point for a number of first ascents, but is now 
no longer used. 

Ascents fkom the Glocknek-Haus or fbom the Franz-Josef-Hads 
(for experts only i the charges given are from the Glocknerhaus, where 
guides are usually to be found; telephone from Heiligenblut). — The 
Fuscherkarkopf (10,945') , aftording an excellent survey of the Glockner 
'^roup, is ascended from the Hofmanns-Hiitte through the Oamtgrube in 
31/2 hrs. (guide 14 K.); rather fatiguing. — The Sinnabeleck or Sonnenwelleck 
(10,705'), the E. neighbour of the Fuscherkarkopf, is ascended from the 
Glockner-Haus via the Obere P/andl-Scharte (9005') in 3I/2 hrs. (guide UK. ; 
fatiguing and not particularly interesting). (From the Fuscherkarkopf to 
the !?onnenwelleck, by following the arete, which sinks towards its centre, 
1 hr.) 

The Grosse or Hohe Burgstall (9730'), reached from the Franz -Josef- 
Haus in 3 hrs. (guide 9 K.) by crossing the upper plateau of the Pasterze. At 
the top is the Oberwalder-Hiitle (opened in 1910; inn), forming the nearest 
starting-point for the Barenkopfe, RilHtor, Johannisberg, etc. From the Burg- 
stall to the Bockkar-Scharte (p. 181). a glacier-route indicated by stakes, 1 hr. 

The Grosse B&renkopf (11,175') is ascended from the Franz-Josef-Haus 
in 51/2 or from the Oberwalder-Hutte in 2'/2 hrs. (guide 22. to the Mainzer 
Hiitte 2i K.). The route runs via the Bockkar-Scharte (p. 181) to the Bockkar 
Glacier and the Eeil-Scharte (10,455'), between the 3Iittlere Barenkopf and 
the Grosse Barenkopf, and then ascends to the right to the top of the 
latter. The descent may be made to the E. via the Hofie Dock (10,991)') to 
the Mainzer Hutte (p. 180). 

The 'Grosse Wiesbachhom (11,715'; from the Franz-Josef-Haus 71/2-8, 
friim the Oberwalder-Hutte 5-6 hrs. ; guide 26, to Ferleiten 2S, to the Moser- 
boden 32 K.\ a trying expedition. From the Franz-Josef-Haus we cross 
the Keil-Scharte (see above), skirting the Grosse Barenkopf on its N.W. 
side, to the Gruber-Scharte (10,150. We then traverse the n^ve, pass the 
Glockerin (11,235') and the flint ere Bratschenkopf (11,210'), and thus reach 
the Wielinger-Scharte (p. 184), whence we follow the S.W. arete to the 
summit. H&sc&ni io ih& Heinrich Schwaiger-Haus^ see p. 184; to the. Mainzer 
Ilutte, see p. 181. 

The •Johannisberg (11,375'; from the Franz-Josef-Haus 6 7 or from the 
Oberwalder-Hutte 3-4 hrs. ; guide 18 K.). The route ascends from the Grosse 
Burgstall across the highest Pasterze basin and by the E. arete ; or by the 
Obere Oedenwinkel-Scharte and the N. arete, to the summit. On the W. 
side the mountain descends in huge precipices to the Oedenwinkel Glacier 
in the Stubach-Tal. Splendid survev of the Glockner group, and extensive 
view towards the N. (Zeller See, etc.). — The Hohe RiflFl (10,980'), from 
the Franz-Josef-Haus in 5-6, from the Oberwalder-Hiitte in 2-3 hrs. (guide 
18 A'.). From the highest Pasterze basin we ascend via the Obere Oedentoinkel- 
f<charte and the S. arete; or we may ascend via the Riffltor (p. 209). — The 
Eiskogele (11,285'), the Schneewinkelkopf (11,450'), and the Romariswand- 
kopf (11,535'; coiiip. p. 203) also maybe ascended from the upper basin of 
the Pasterze Glacier, the two latter via the Scfineewinkel-Scharte (ca. 10,825'); 
from the Fran/Josef-Haus 5, from the Oberwalder-Hiitte 2-2V2 hrs. each, 
with guides. The three ascents may be combined by robust climbers in 
one expedition. 

The ascent of the *GroBS- Glockner (12,4600, 9-10 hrs. from 
Heiligenblut, is fatiguing but not very difficult for practised moun- 
taineers with steady heads (guide via theLeiterweg orHofmannsweg 
and back 30, with descent to the Studl- Hiitte 34, to Kals 3S K.). 
The Klein - Glockner was ascended for the first time in 1799 by 
Count Hohenwart, while the Gross-Glockner was first ascended the 
following year by a pastor named Horasch (first ascent from Kals. 



to HeUigenblut. RIFFLTOR. Map,p.l74. — ILR.39. 209 

3ee p. 202). The Old Glocknbr Path f Salmweg or Leitertalweg) 
leads from Heiligenblut via the Trogalm (p. 204) to (3 hrs.) the Leiter- 
Hutte [6615'). Above it we diverge to the right from the route to 
Kals and ascend to the (2V2 l^rs.) abandoned Salm-Hutte (^9040'), 
on the Hasenpalfen, and thence across the Letter Glacier to the 
(i^i'o^^-) ^ohenwart-Scharte (10,445'1, between the Hohenwartkopf 
and the Kellersberg, and the (1 hr.) Erzherzog- Johann-Hiitte on the 
Adlersruhe (11,370'), where the route unites with that from Kals 
(see p. 202), I'/q hr. from the summit, — From the Glockner-Haus 
(p. 207) the Leiter-Hiitte is reached in 2V4 hrs. via the natural 
bridge and the Obere Leiterweg (see p. 204). 

The HoFMAXNSWEG is much more interesting than this, but 
should be attempted only by experts and only when the snow is in 
a favourable condition (5^2-6 hrs. from the Franz -Josef- Haus ; 
guide from the Glockner-Haus 22, with descent to theStiidl-Hutte26, 
to Kals 30 K.). From the Franz-Josef-Haus (p. 207) we descend by 
a narrow path to the Pasterze Glacier and in 3/^ hr. cross it dingonally 
to the club-path which ascends through the Aeiissere Glocknerkar and 
over the crevassed Aeussere Glocknerkar Glacier in the direction of the 
Hohenwart- Snharte, and thence to the right below the ar«"'te to the 
(3V2-4 hrs.) Erzhtr%og- Johann-Hiitte (p. 202\ 

The Sandkopf (10,120') , easily ascended in 5 Lrs. from Heiligenblut 
(guide 14 A'.), is a fine puint of view. From the Fleiss Inn (p. 206) we 
ascend across the pastures of the Mdnchsberg (edelweiss), passing two cresses 
(7925' and 903o'). The last part of the ascent is over debris and rock. — 
The Brennkogel (9910'), ascended through the Guttal in 5 hrs. (guide 12, 
to Ferleiten 23^.), is fatiguing but interesting (easier from the Fleiligen- 
bluter Tauern, see p. 181). 

Passes. From the Glockner-Haus to Ferleiten over the P/cmdl-Scharte 
5V2-6 hrs.. to the Trauner Alp 4-4';-j hrs. (guide to Ferleiten 11. from Heiligen- 
blut 16, including the Franz-Josefs-HOhe 19 K. ; not indispensable for adepts). 
The pass is much easier in this direction than from Ferleiten (p. 180). 
Horse from the Glockner Haus to the clacierT A". — Over the Bockkar-Scharte 
and the Hohe Gang to the Maimer Hiitte and Ferleiten^ 9-tO hrs. from the 
Glockner-Haus (guide 19 A'.), a grand glacier -expedition, ni>t difficult for 
•he moderately expert ; see pp. 181, 180. 

From the Glockner-Haus to KaU over i\ie.Berger-T5rl (7 hrs., guide 13 A'.; 
from Heiligenblut direct 8 hrs., guide 14 A'.), see p. 204. 

Over the Riffi.tor to tuk Moskbboden (8-9 hrs. from the Franz-Josef- 
Haus; guide 23. from lleiligeublut 32 A".), very attractive and not difficult 
for adepts. The Riffltor (10,220'), between the Hohe Riffl (10,980*) and the 
Vordere Bdrenkopf (].0J(^' \ easily ascended in 1/2 hr.), is reached in 5 hrs. 
(2 hrs. from the Oberwalder-Hiitte) via the upper Pasterze Glacier. Descent 
(keeping to the right) across the Karlinger Glacier (not much crevassed in 
its upper part; comp. p. 184) to the (3 hrs.) ifoserboden Hotel (p. 183). 

OvEE THE Obere Oedenwinkel-Sch.\rte to the Rudolfs-Hutte (10 hrs, 
from the Franz -Josef- Haus ; guide 23 A".), rather difficult. The route to 
the Riffltor (see above) is followed as far as the middle of the upper Pas- 
terze basin. Here we turn to the left and ascend to the Obere Oedenwinkel- 
Scharte (10,560'), which lies between the Hohe Riffl and the Johannisberg 
(both ascended hence, see p. 208). The descent to the Oedenwinkel Glacier 
and the Rudolfs- Hiitte (p. 185) is precipitous and difficult. — The ITntere 
Oedenwinkel-Scharte (10,480*), between the Johannisberg and the Eiskogele, 
is very difficult and dangerous on account of falling stones.

From Heiligenblut over the Heiligenbluter Hochtor to FerUiten or Rauris 
(8-9 brs.; guide 16 or 19jSr., not irnlispensable), see p. 181. 

UvEK THE SoNNBLiOK TO Kolm-Sajgckn (Rackis), 10 hrs. (guidc 22 iL.), 
not difficult for experts. From Heiligenblut to (V* br.) tbe Fleiss Inn, 
see p. 206. A bridle-path ascends hence on the right bank of the Fleitttal, 
which (V4 br. farther) divides into the Grosse Fleisstal to the N. and tbe 
Kleine Fleisstal to the E. We ascend the latter to the (3 hrs.) Seebichl-Haus 
(8085'-, /«», 9 beds), near the Zirm-See (8200'), a small lake in a rocky 
basin at the foot of the Goldzechkopf (10,015'). The Gjaidtrog-HShe (9790'), 
between the Kleine and the Grosse Fleias, is easily ascended from this 
point in 2 hrs. and affords a fine view of the Glockner and Goldberg 
groups. — From tbe Seebichl- Haus we may ascend to the S.E. via the 
Seebichl and across the Kleine Fleitt Glacier^ latterly climbing a steep slope to 
the (2V2 hrs.) Kleine Fleiss - Scharte (9775') and across the arete to the left 
to the (»/2 br.) Zittel-Haus on tbe top of the Sonnblick (10,180' ^ p. 177). The 
descent is made by the Vogelmaier-Ochsenkar Glacier and past the Rojacher 
Hiitte to the Neubau and (3'/--! hrs.) Kolm-Saigura (p. 176), or from the Neubau 
via the Riffel->Sc/iarte to (4 hrs.) the Nasg/eld (p. 171; guide from Heiligen- 
blut via the Sonnblick and tbe Riffelscbarte to Bockstein 32 K.). A longer 
and more fatiguing but for experts highly attractive route leads from the 
Sonnblick bv tbe Herzog Ernst (9630') and tbe Schareck (10,275') to tbe 
(6-7 hrs.) Nassfeld-Haus (comp. pp. 171, 176; guide to Bockstein 86 £".). 

OvEE THE GoLDZECH-ScHABTE TO Kolm-Saigoen, 8Vi-9 brs. (guide 22 .ff.), 
for adepts only. From (4 hrs.) the Seebichl-Haut (see above) we ascend the 
S.E. bank of the Zirm-See, then across ice and rock to a deserted miners' 
house and to the (IV4 br.) Goldzech - Scharte (9220'), lying between |the 
Hocbarn on tbe N. and the Goldzechkopf on the S. [From the pass to 
the summit of the Hochaxn or Hochnarr (10,690'), an easy ascent of IV2 br. 
(from Heiligenblut 6 hrs. •, guide 3 K. extra); view magnificent. To the S. 
a fatiguing route leads round tbe Goldzechkopf and across the Kleine Fleist- 
Scharte to the (2 hrs.) top of the Sonnblick (p. 177).] We descend from the 
pass over tbe Hocharn Glacier (sometimes much crevassed) to (3 brs.) Kolm- 
Saigurn (p. 176).

esting visit may be paid to the deserted foTtress of Geroldieck (1990'), 
the only frontier-fortress retained by the Bavarians at the end of the 
campaign of 1809, and delivered up to Austria in 1814. It lies on 
a steep rock above the town (adm. 20h.). In the barracks is the 
Museum of the Historical Society (open 9-6, adm. 20 h.). Fine view 
from the Kalvarienberg , 1 M. from the railway-station, on the E. 
side of the town. In the cemetery is the tomb of Friedrich Lht 
(d. 1&461, the political economist, to whom a monument, by 
Pfretzschner, was erected in the Hoerfarter Promenade to the E. of 
the cemetery in 1906. About t/3 M. above the cemetery, at the 
month of the romantic Kiengraben^ are the baths of Kienbergklamm, 
with shady promenades (pens, from 5 AT.). 

Environs. On the left bank of the Inn, '/< M. from the station, is the 
II6tel Zellerburg fwell spoken ufj, at the foot of the wooded Zeller-Rain 
(1945'; shady walks and pretty views). — Crossing the railway at the 
station we may proceed, past Zell (Birnberg) and the swimming-baths (well 
fitted up), to the ( V2 hr.) Pens. Ed-Schldttl (pens. 6-7 K.}. Thence we may 
ascend in 20 min. to the little Pfrillen-See (2(00'^ swimming-bath) and 
(20 min. farther on, to the N.) to the Lang- See (2' 60"), whence we may 
return by the Tiersee road (to Kufstein i? hr.). Or we may proceed from 
the Lang -See through wood to the (25 min.) Hecht-See (see below). — 
Another walk follows the highroad along the Inn to (Ve hr.) the Klaute 
(p. 88; inn), near the Otho Chapel. — The 'Tierberg (2465'; 1 hr.) may 
be ascended by a carriage-road via Zell (see above), passing the villas of 
Hohen-Stafng ; from the (V2 hr.) Ed-Scfildssl (see above) by a marked path 
in V« ^-i or by a shady path diverging to the left below the station, past 
the upper Tierb'erg Farm. Beautiful view from the tower on the top, which 
dates from the 11th cent, (key from the 'hermit'). A forest-path descends 
hence i.n the N. to (25 min.) the Hecht-See (ITCKy), embosomed in wood, and 
affording an admirable view of the Kaiser-Gebirge from its W. bank (best 
light in the evening). From the S. end of the lake we descend to the 
Otho Chapel and the (25 min.) Klaute (see above). — Ticrsee-Tal, Landl, 
and Bayrisch-Zell. see pp. 85, 84 (one-horse carr. from Kufstein to Urspring 
24 K.). A partly new path leads from Knfstein in 3-3'/-' hrs. to the top 
of the =Pendling (5135'; 2'/2 hrs. from Vorder-Tiersee, p. 85). 

A pretty walk from Bad Kieubergklamm follows the Hoerfarter 
Promenade along the slope of the Duxerkiipfl to the (1 hr.) Dickicht 
Chapel (2300"). in the Kaiser Tal, opposite the GeisUnchmiede-Wand. Short 
of the chapel a fatiguing path diverges on the left for the ('/« hr.) Veiten- 
hof. — The Duxerkdpfl (2415'; V4-I br), with fine view of the Inn Valley, 
Kaiser-Gebirge, etc., is ascended either by a new road ascending to the 
right, bfehind the cemetery, to ('/z hr.) Vorderdux (good inn), 1/4 hr. from 
the top. or by a footpath, to the right, from Bad Kieubergklamm (the 
route via the Hochteand is preferable for those free from dizginess). — 
The Brenten-Joch (4140*; 21/2 hrs.; ea^y and attractive) is ascended by a 
marked path via the Duxerkopfl to the (IV2 hr.) Duxer Alpl and the saddle, 
whence we mount the green summit to the right (rfmts. at the forester's, 
2 min. below the top). It is preferable to ascend from the saddle to the 
left to the (V4 hr., or 3 hrs. from Kufstein) *Brandkogel, or Gamskogel 
(4760'), which affords a splendid survey of the Kaiser-Gebirge and the Inntal. 
Descent via the Bettlertteig to (3'/2 hrs.) Hinter-Barenbad (p. 216), rather 
trying (guide desirable); or, better, to the Gaithach-Tal on the S., thence 
up to the (1 hr.) Kaindl-Hiitte, finely situated on the Steinberg Alp (4325'; 
inn), at the foot of the SchelTauer, and via the Waller Alp to (IV2 hr.) the 
Hintersteiner See (marked path; guide, not indispensable for experts, ^ K.) 

*Eai8er-Tal (3-3V2 ^rs. to Hinter-Barenbad; marked path; 
guide 4^., unnecessary). A road and a shorter meadow -path 
(guide-boardsj lead to the right to the ( 1 V4 M.) Sparchen-Miihle, with

the Kufstein electric power works, at the narrow mouth of the 
valley. We ascend the path beyond the bridge, just behind the 
mill, and the steps to the right by the cross ^ 25 min., a bench 
affording a charming view of the Inn Valley up to the Stubai 
glaciers. Thence by a good path, high above the valley, passing the 
six 'Kaiserhofe', the (1/4 hr.) third of which {Veitenhof, 2325') is 
a good inn, whence a marked path leads to the left to the (20 min.) 
Teufelskanzel (2635'; view). — 10 min. Guide-post pointing (to 
the left) to the Vorder-Kaiserfelden-Haus (p. 217); 10 min. Pfandl- 
/io/'(2865'; inn); 1/2 hr. Hinter- Kaiserhof (2875'). Two paths lead 
hence to Hinter-Barenbad. The usual route, a good bridle-path, 
descends through wood to the right to the Vordere Trifiklause 
(24S0') in the Kaiser-TaL crosses the Bdrenbach, proceeds through 
the Bdrenbader KLause to the left bank of the Sparchenbach, and 
finally reaches the (1 1/4 hr.) Anton Karg-Haus. The other path (red 
and white way-marks), with better views but 1/2 hr. longer, ascends 
steeply to the left and then leads up and down hill (little shade) 
via the Boden Alp, the Hochleiten Alp, the Bdren-Tal, and the 
Ldngeck, to the jrrandly situated Hinter-Barenbad with the Anton 
Karg-Haus (2725'; *Inn, 92 beds at 2-2.50^.), a meteorological 
station. 

Excursions (guide, Michael Gschwendtner). A bridle-path ascends from 
Hinter-Barenbad to the (2 hrs.) Stripsenjoch (5185'), with the Stripsenjoch- 
Haus of the local Alpine Club (Inn in summer, 38 beds at 1.50-2.50 K. 
and 20 mattre,'se>i ; telenLone; fine vievr), between the Totenkirchl ^7195'; 
ascent very difficult, guide 2i A'.), on the right, and the Stripsenkopf. The 
Stripsenkopf (6035'J, ascended hence in 3,4 hr. (marked path; guide 6 .K"., 
not indispensable), commands an excellent survey of the Kaiser-Gebirge. 
From the Stripsen-Joch to the Oriesner Alp, see below; via Tristecken to 
the top of the Feldberg^ see p. 217; to Vorder-Kaiserfelden., see p. 217. — An 
interesting but difficult ascent is that of the '-^EUmauer Haltspitze (7690'), 
the highest summit of the Kaiser-Gebirge, which may be accomplished 
from Hinter-Barenbad in 4V2-5 hrs. (guide 12 K.), via the' Scharlinger Boden, 
the Bote Rinn Srharte, and the Achselrinne (comp. p. 226). On the top are a 
shelter-hut and an iron cross 10' high. Descent (steep; wire-rope) from 
the Rote Rinn-Scharte to the S.E. via the Gamsdnger to the Orullen HUtte 
(p. 220; guide, 14 A"). — Ascent of the Sonneck (7410'), a splendid point 
of view , from Hinter-Barenbad via the Jdgereck and through the Gams- 
kar in 41/2 hrs. (guide 9, to Barnstatt 12 K.), fatiguing. Descent by the 
Wiesberg and the Eaiter-Hochalp to (3 hrs.) Barnstatt (p. 217), steep at first 
(wire-rope). 

Fbom Hintek-Barenbad. to St. Jobann in Tirol, 71/2 hrs., a fine route 
(guide li, to the Griesner Alp 6 K., not indispensable). The path over the 
(2 hrs.) Stripsen-Joch (see above) descends to the (IV4 hr.) Griesner Alp 
(2950'; inn) in the Kaiserharh-Tal. This is a good starting-point for the 
ascents of the Akerlspitze (7650'; guide iSK.), Ldrcheck (6970' : 13 K.), Goinger 
Haltspitzen (72C0' and 73(J0'; 9 and 11 A".), and Predigtsiuhl (6890'; very diffi- 
cult, guide 50-70 A.), as well as for the passes leading over the Kleine Tori 
(6920') or the EUmauer Tor (6825') to the Gaudeamus or Grutten-Hiitte 
(p. 22ij; guide 8 A.). An enjoyable circular tour (way-marks defective), 
with splendid rocky scenery, leads via the Kleine and Groste Griesner Tor 
to the Oriesnerkar (guide 6 A'.). — From the Griesner Alp a route leads to 
(IV4 hr.) Griesenau, where we mav take either the road to the left leading 
to Schwendt and (2«/2 hrs.) K6ssen'{p. 218), or that to the right to Oasteig 
(p. 76) and (2 hrs.) St. Johann (p. 218).

From Hintsb-Babenbad to the GRUTTEy-HuTTE over the Eop/ldrl (6725'), 
4 hrs. (good marked path; guide, 10 /ST., not necessary for experts), interest- 
ing btit laborious The ascent of the Ellmauer Halt (p. 216) may be 
combined with this route in 2 hrs. more. The route via the Hote Rinn- 
Scharte (6825) and the 'Joseph Egger-Steig', from the Stripsen-Jich via the 
Steinerne Rinne and the Ellmauer Tor (p. 226), are more diflicult. — From 
Hinteb-Baresbad TO THE HiNTEKSTEiN Lake, 4V2 hrs. (guide 9 K.). We 
follow the Bettler-Steig (way-marks, but guide useful, S E.) to the (3 hrs.) 
Eaindl-Hiilte (p. 215), and descend thence via the Waller Alp to the (2 hrs.) 
lake (see below). — From Hinter-Barexbad to the Walchsee, 4'/2-5 hrs. 
(guide, 10 E.. not indispensable) A marked path leads via the Ldngeck 
(p. 216) and the (2 hrs.) saddle (4685') between the Stripsenkopf and the 
Kopanzen to the (V4 hr) Feld Alp (442U') , wjience the Feldberg (5950'; 
fine view) is ascended in IV2 hr. (from the Stripsenkopf to the Feldberg 
via Tristecken IV2 hr , interesting for experts). The descent may be made 
via the Hcheiben'tichlbei'g to Grie<enau or .Schwendt (p. 216). — Descent from 
the Feld Alp through the Habersauer Tal to (21/4 hrs.) Walchsee (p. 218). 

About 5 mill, beyond the Veitenhof (p. 1{&) a path, indicated by 
red marks, leads to the left via the Rietz Alp to the (2 hrs. ; 3-372 ^rs. 
from Kufstein ) Vorder-Kaiserfelden-Haus (4550'; *iTin, 24 beds at

splendid view), the highest peak of the Uintere Eaiser, is ascended via the 
Hinter-Eaiserfelden Alp in 21/2-3 hrs. (at the top is a cross 21/ high). An 
interesting path (red marks; guide advisable, 9 £".) leads from the Naun- 
spitze across the plateau of the Hintere Kaiser and past the Einser to the 
Zicolfer^ on the E. slope of which it joins the direct ascent. We descend 
through the Vogelbad-Eamin to the Vogelbad (6105') and ascend past the 
Elfer to (2»/2 hrs ) the Pyramidenspitze. — A direct descent leads from the 
Pyramid enspitze (marked path, but guide advisable, 9 JT.) to (2V2-3 hrs.) 
Hinter-Barenbad (p. 216). From Vorder-Kaiserfelden to Hinter-Bartnbad, 
2 hrs. (marked path; guide 4 £"., not indL-^pensable) ; to the Stripsen-Joch 
via the Hochalpe (4605') and the Ropamen (5165'), 3V2-4 hrs., a fatiguing 
route (guide 6 E.) commanding fine views. 

To the HiNTERSTEiN Lake, 3hr5.,*an attractive route (guide 
4 A'., needless). A path (red and white marks) leads to the S. from 
Kufstein via Mittemdorf, passes beneath the wire-rope railway of 
the cement-factory, and at (1/2^1.) a finger-post ascends to the left 
through wood, passes the Locherer Kaptllt and Egersbach, crosses the 
Gaisbach, and reaches (1 hr.) the farms oi Eiberg (2205'; Schmiedl- 
wirt). We then follow the footpath to the right and after 1/4 hr. to 
the left, via the Steinerne Stiege, a path hewn in steps in the face of 
the cliflf (without danger), to (3 4hr.) Widauers Inn (plain), 1/2 M. 
from the W. end of the picturesque *Hmter8teiiier See (2630'),

ihrough the Zimmer-Ta I to (41/2 M.) Judenstein (2975'; Fen^. Erlacher), with 
a pilgrimage-church. [About 3/4 M. to the N.E. is the Speckbacher Hof, 
the house of Speckbacher, marked by a memorial tablet.] Thence the 
walk may be pleasantly extended (road) via Rinn (3025'; *not. Rinnerhof, 
K. 1.60-5, pens. 5-10^.; Neuwirt; Arcbe), with the Lavieren-Bad (inn), 
or, l)etter, through the woods direct to (IV2 hr.) Aldrans (p. 258). Or we 
may diverge to the left about '/« ^^'- beyond Rinn and proceed via Sistravs 
to (2 hrs.) Lans, whence we may make our way to Innsbruck either by 
tramway or on foot (1 hr.). 

The Gnadenwald, the hilly plateau on the N. bank of the Inn, may 
be reached by the omnibus which plies thrice daily from Hall to St. Martin 
(I A'.; one-horse carr. in IV4 hr., 6 A'., (wo-horse 8V2 A'.). We follow the 
road to the Salzbcrg (see below) for 8/4 hr., and then ascend to the right 
past the "HOt.-I'ens. Wiesenhof (Qd beds at i.50-5, pens.6-8 K.), beautifully situat- 
ed, to (V4 hr.) St. Martin (2920'; Hot. Gnadenwalder-Hof, 40 bods at 1.50-4, 
pens. 4-8 A"., with baths; Speckbacher, unpretending; guide, Franz Kern). 
Thence via (V2 hr.) St. Michael (2880') to (V-2 hr.) the Gtmgl Inn (2865'), 
whence we descend to ('/a hr.) the church of St. Maria-Larch (2230') and 
('/4 hr.) Terfeiis (p. 223): or from St. Martin we may return by a shady 
patli (red marks) via Mils to Hall. — A marked path leads from St. Martin 
to the (I74 hr.) Walder Alp (4925'; rfmts.); the Walder Joch (5340'), 25 min. 
to the K., commands a splendid view of the Inn valley, the Tux and Stubai 
glaciers, and the N. Limestone Alps. A similar view is obtained from the 
Hinterhorri Alp (5(X)0'; inn), i/.^ hr. to the W. of the Walder Alp and 13/4 Jir. 
from St. Martin. Descent from the Walder Alp either on the N.W. side 
by the 'Knappensleig' (wire-rope) to the (2V2 hrs.) hunting-lodge In der Au 
(p. 222) in the Vomper Loch, or on the N.E. side to the (IV4 hr.) Gan Alp 
(p. 222), and thence via Vmmelberg to (2 hrs.) Ter/ens, or to the (IV2 hr.) 
I'fannschmiede (p. 222). 

The Haller Salzberg C6 hrs.) deserves a visit. The road ('Salzstrasse') 
leads to the N., past (left) Absam (the path via Absam, which joins the 
road in 1 hr., is preferable), and ascends the Halltal to the (V/ 2 hr.) Belt el- 
tBvr/eck (Bettelwurf-Hiitte, see p. 225). Thence we may continue to follow 
the road, or take the path to the left via /Sif. Magdalena (^ij^ \ inn) to the 
(iVa hr.) Herrenhduser, beside the shafts of the Salt Mines (4860*; rfmts., 
bed only by special permission of the manager at Hall). A visit to the 
mines is interesting (on Mon., Tues., Wed., and Thurs. only; duration 
11/2 hr. ; adm. 1 pers. 4 K. incl. light, each addit. pers. 2 K.). The Kaiser- 
iditrf* (5580"), reached by a red-marked path via the Tori (5820') in 11/4 hr., 
commands a fine view; another still more extensive is obtained from the 
Zunderkopf (6450'; ascended by a club-path in 3/4 hr. from the Tori). A 
steep descent (marked path; guide necessary for novices, 8 A^.) leads from 



HALL. Map, p. 78. — III. R.41 . 225 



the Tori to the Thaurer Alp, TAaur (p. 224), and (3 hrs.) Hall. — From the 
Herrenhauser a cart-road ascends to the Iss-J6chl (5605'), whence a carriage- 
road goes on to the (V2 hr.) Iss-Anger, in wild environs. An interesting 
pass leads hence over the Lafatscher-Joch (eSiC) to the (272 hrs.) Haller- 
Anger-Haut and through the Hinterau Tal to (S'/a-* hrs.) Scharnitz (comp. 
p. 6'2); another (fatiguing) crosses the Slempel-Joch (7275') to the Samer- 
Tal (to Scharnitz 8-9 hrs. ; comp. p. 63). 

The 'GroBse Bettelwurfspitie (SQW) is ascended from Hall in 6V2-T hrs- 
(not difficult for adepts; guide 12 K.). We ascend the HallUl to the Bettel- 
tcurfeck (p. 224 ^ spring). Thence we either take the steep path (red marks) 
to the right via the Bettelwurf-Reisse and the Klamml (wire-rope) to the 
(31/2 brs.) Bettelwurf-Hufte; or (easier) follow the road to the (IV2 hr.) 
Herrenhduier (p. 224), and thence proceed via the Iss-Anger to the (2 hrs.) 
La/aUcher-Joch (p. 63 and above), whence a good path <blue and red marks) 
ascends to the (IV* hr.) Bettelvourf-HUtte (7380'; 'Inn, 18 beds and 14 mat- 
tresses), in a commanding situation. The summit is reached thence by a 
steep ascent of 2 hrs. (wire-ropes). \ difficult route crosses the arete to 
(1 hr.) the Kleine Bettelwurfspitze (8505'). 

The Volder-Tal. The road leads across the bridge over the Inn via 
the (1 M.) HCt.-Petu. Voldevwaldhof (p. 223) and the O/2 M.) Kreuzhdusl Inn 
to (IV2M.) G^ai/eigr (2160*), and thence ascends via Klein -Volderberg (3375') 
and round the Windegg to the (U/z hr.) Wildbad Voldertal, or Volderhad 
(3660'; 90 beds at 1.20-2. pens. 5-6 A'.), with its alkaline spring, prettily 
situated in the woods. [The Wildbad may be reaL-hed also from Volders 
(p. 223) in 2 hrs., by a good new road through the valley (carriage, to be 
ordered beforehand, from Hall 22, from Volders 18 A'.).] Fine view from 
(20 min.) the Hof Windegg (4a (V; Inn, pens. 5 AT. 40 A.-b JT.). The Lavgatz 
Alp (7265'; 3 hrs. ; guide not indispensable), the Rosenjocti (9025'; 6 hrs., 
guide 15, with descent to Matrei 16 A".), the Hanneburger (8670*; 41/2 hrs.; 
guide from Hall 10 A:.), and the OlungeUer (8790*; 5V2 hrs.; guide 10 A^.) 
are ascended hence without difficulty. — Ovkk the Navis-Joch to Matrki 
on the Brenner railway. 8 hrs., easy and interesting beyond the pass (comp. 
Map, p. 234; guide 10 A"., unnecessary in good weather; Andr. Po.«ch of 
Volders recommended). From the Volderbad we follow a red-marked path 
up the left bank of the brook, crossing to the right bank after IV2 hr., to 
(V2 hr.) the Vorberg Alp (5585'), at the foot of the Afalgi-ilbler (9240'; marked 
path in 4 hrs. ; guide 10 A"). We then proceed via the (1 hr.) Steinkasem 
Alp (6560") to (IV2 hr.) the Navis-Joch (8200"), with a fine view of the Tux 
and Stubai Alps. Descent over steep pastures to the Navis-Tal, with the 
Zehenter and Stipler Alps., and to (IVzhr.) Navis (4405'; quarters at the cure's, 
good wine), whence a cart-track leads to (2 hrs.) Matrei or Steinach (p. 295). 

The train quits the Inn. On the right rises the Zunderkopf, 
with the white Kaiseradule (p. 224); at their base lie the villages 
of Thaur (p. 224), Rum (rail, station), and Arzl. To the left, on 
the hills at the foot of the OLungezer (see above), is the village 
of Rinn, the home of Speckbacher (p. 224). Farther down is the 
chateau of Amras (p. 266). The train crosses the Inn, above the 
influx of the Sill, opposite Miihlau (p. 257), and traverses the valley 
on a long viaduct.

Worgl (1680'), see p. 219. The road crosses the Brixentaler Ache 
near the Grattenbergl, runs along the right bank (opposite is the 
railway, with the Soll-Leukental station, p. 228), and ascends to the 
N.E., in view of Schloss liter (p. 228), to the low saddle separating 
the Sblland, or valley of Soil, from the Achen-Tal. To the N.W. rise 
the Juflnger-JocU and the two Bolven. — 6 M. Soil (2305'; Post; 
Feldwebel ; Egger). Ascent of the Hohe Salve (3-31/2 trs.), see p. 228. 
The Kleine Bolf (5120') may be ascended hence in 21/2 hrs. (at- 
tractive ; comp. p. 219). Leaving Scheffau to the left, we next reach 
(3 M.) the Blaiken Inn,. 

From the Blaikan Inn a marked path leads via Scheffau (2355'; rustic 
inns) to (1 hr.) Bdrnstatt (3030'; inn), V* hr. from the E. end of the Hinter- 
ttein Lake (p. 217; thence bv the Steinerne Stiege to Kvfsiein, 3 hrs). The 
Schefauer (7365'; S'/-' hra. ; guide 6 K.), the Sonneck (7410'; 41/2 hrs.; 9 A".), and 
the Treffauer (7560'; 5 hrs. ; 10 K.) may be ascended from Barnstatt by adepts 
(see below). From Barnstatt to the Grutten-HiUte (see below), 4 hrs. (guide 6 if.). 

11 M. Ellmau (2665'; 850 inhab. ; *Post; Hochfilzer; Lobenwein) 
is prettily situated at the foot of the Wilde Kaiser. 

The Kaiser-Gebirge consists of two ranges separated hy the Kaiser- Tal 
and the Kaiserbach- Tal (p. 216) : the N. chain is the Hintere Kaiser^ while 
the S. chain, at the base of which our road runs, is called the Vordere 
or Wilde Kaiser. The latter and higher chain culminates in the Ellmauer 
Halt., Treffauer., Sonneck, KarlspiUen, Ackerlspitze, and Mauktpitze. Most 
of these peaks are difficult and should not be attempted except by adepts, 
btit the ascents from this side are now facilitated by the erection of tw(j 
club -huts, the Gaudeamus- Hiitte and the Orutten-Hiitte (guides, Josef 
Schlechter of Ellmau , Georg Ilochfilzer imd Seb. Klausner of Going, Jak. 
Brunner and Joh. Rothart of St. Johanu; comp. also p. 214). — From Ellmau 
a good path ascends to the N. via, the (IV4 hr.) Wochenbrunner Alp (3555') 
to the (3/4 hr.) Gaudeamus - Hiitte (4165'; Inn in summer, 14 mattresses), 
erected by the Berlin Alpine Club in the Kubel-Kar and affording a beautiful 
view of the Tauern. This hut is the starting-point for the ascents of the 
Ellmauer Halt (7690'; 372-4 hrs. ; guide 7, with descent to Hinter-Barenbad 
II A'.), the Vordere and Hintere Karlspitze (7505' and 7530'; guide 12 A'. eacL, 
15 fur both together, to Ilinter-Barenbad 15 and 19 A'.), the Vordere Goinger 
Haltspitze (7365'; guide 7, with descent to the Griesner Alp via the Steineni' 
Kinne 12 A.), the Torlspitzen (7225'), the Ackerlspitze (T660'), and the i^a«/. 
spitze (7305'), and for the passes over the KopftSrl or the Rote Rinn-Scharte to 
Hinter-Bdrenbad (p. 216; guide 8 A".) and over the Ellmauer Tor (6425') or 
the Kleine Tori (6925') to the Griesner Alp (p. 216; guide SAT.). 

About 2V2-3 hrs. to the N.W. of EUiuau (ascending to the left from the 
Wochenbrunner Alp, see above; guide 4 A". ; steeper marked path from the 
Gaudeamus-Hiitte through the Klammtrl in V* l»r.) is the Grutten-Hutte of 
the Munich Alpine Club (5225'; Inn, 5 beds and 16 mattresses), finely situated 
near the Gruttenbrundl (good spring), whence experts may ascend the 
Treffauer (Ibiuiy ; 4 hrs. ; guide 10. to Ilinterstein 12 A'.), the Ellmauer Halt- 
(769'J'; via the Gamsdnger and the Achselrinne in 272-3 hrs., see p 216), 
the Sonneck (7410'; 4 hrs. ; guide 12, to Hinter-Barenbad 15 A".), the Vordere 
and Hintere Karlspitze {IbOb' and 7530'), the Hintere Goinger Halt (7200'; marked 
path, easy and interesting), the Vordere Goinger Halt (7365'), the Torlspitzen, 
etc. — From Kufstein the shortest route to the Grutten-Hiitte leads via the 
Hintersiein Lake (p. 217) : to Barnstatt 3 hrs , thence to the Grutten (marked 
path) 4-4V2 hrs. — Passes : over the Kopftdrl (6725') and the Hofie Winkel 
(marked path) to (3 hrs.) Hinter-Bdrenbad (guide, not indispensable for 
experts, 8 A".) or to the (37^ hrs.) Stripsmjoch- Haus (p. 216; guide 9 A^) ;

A good panorama of the Kaiser-Gebirge is obtained from the Eart- 
kaserkopjt (5(n5'), a spur of the Hohe Salve, IV2 hr. to the S. of Ellmau ; 
descent to (IV2 hr.) Kirchberg and (Q'/z hrs.) Kitzbvihel. — The Gamskogerl 
(5085'), under the Maukspitze, ascended via the Reg Alp in 3 hrs. (with 
guide), commands a fine view of the Tauern, etc. 

The road now descends to (1272^^0 Going (2400'; Schnabl; 
Schlechter), a village with 750 inhabitants. — About -/3M. farther 
on is the Stangl Inn. 

To the right is a lane leading via the Rohrerhiihel (once an important 
silver -mine) to (Q*;* M.) 06emdor/ (p. 232) and (6 M.) KitzbUhel. A more 
interesting walk may be taken along the 'Romer-Weg' through the Biihlach 
(p. 230) to:(2V2 hrs.) the Schwarzsee (p. 230), via the Rettenberg (2830'; fine 
view) and the Gieringer Lake. — A marked path leads from Going to 
(2 hrs.) the Gaudeamus-Butte (p. 226). 

Farther 011, we follow the Reitner Ache to Spital (p. 232) and 
then cross the Grosse Ache. 

18 M. St. Johann in Tirol (2160'), a railway-station (p. 232), 
at the N. base of the KitzbiihUr Horn (p. 230). 

The following route is more attractive than the moudtonous high- 
road via Erpfendorf toWaidring: by railway to Fieberbrunn (p. 233); then 
walk by St. Jacob im Haus to St. Ult-icfi am Pillersee and (3'/a hrs.) Waidring 
(flee below). 

The road leads to the N.E. through the wide valley of the Grosse 
Ache (Leuken-Tal), quits it at (23 M.) Erpfendorf (2(}Sb' ; inn; 
route to Kossen. see p. 218), and turns to the K. via Reiterdorf. 

27V2 M. Waidring (2560'; *rost, 60 beds from 1.40, pens. 5 K.; 
Waidringer Hof, well spoken of; Mengg\ a summer-resort on the 
watershed between the Achen-Tal and the Saalach-Tal (840 inhab.). 

Excursions. To the (1 hr.) Ilnusherg (3640'). with view of the Gross- 
Glockner; to the (1 hr.) Dalsen Alp (3216'; rfmt,'?.). — By the Grunwald- 
Hutte to the (2V2 hrs ) Kammerkdhr Alp (54U5') and through the Schwarzberg- 
Klamm to (4 hrs.) Unken, see p. 164 (guide necessary). The Kammerkdhr- Platte 
or Stein -Platte (eiSO") may be ascended from the Alp in 1 hr. ; view very 
fine. — The Fellhorn (STSC; 3Vi-4 hrs., with guide; attractive) is ascended 
via Reiterdorf. On the N. .«ide, 20 min. below the top, is the Eggenalm Inn. 
The descent may be m;ide to Rcit im Winkel (p. 93). — The Hinterhorn 
(8220*; 6-6V2 hrs. with guide), ascended by the Griesbacher Steig via the 
Waidringer Xieder., is very interesting for experts (see p. 163). 

A road leads to the 8. through the Waidringer Oefen a gorge of the 
Orietlbach, and past (8/4 hr.) the chapel of SI. Adolari (2780*; plain inn) to 
the (»/4 hr.) sequestered blue Pillersee (2735'), at the S. end of which lies 
the (IV2M.) village of St. Ulrich (2775'; =^Gasthans am .See, 30 beds at 1-2^.; 
Zum Brau; tn.ut at both; guides, Clem. Widmoser and Joh. Wagstatter), 
with sulphur-baths. From St. Ulrich by St. Jakob im Haus to (2 hrs.) 
Fieberbrunn., see p. 233. 

The road from Waidring almost all the way to Reichenhall leads 
through grand mountain-scenery. The profound and picturesque 
valley of the Loferer Bach, between the Hochplatte and the Steinberg, 
gradually contracts. In the narrowest part is the Pass Strub (2255'; 
inn), the frontier between Tyrol and Salzburg, which was once 
fortified, and was heroically defended by the Tyrolese peasants in 
1800. 1805, and 1809 (obelisk erected in 1887). Beyond the Hinter- 
horn Inn, at the end of the defile, we enter the broad Saalach-Tal. 

331/2 M. Lofer and thence to Saalfelden or Reichenhall, see R. 30.

43. From Worgl to Zell am See via Kitzbilhel. 

58 M. Railway ( Oesterreichische Staatsbahn) in 21/4-3 hrs. (express fares 
11 K. 90, 7 A'. 30, iK.GOh.; ordinary fares 9 Z., 5 ^. 30, SK.50h.). 

Wdrgl (1680'), see p. 219. The railway follows the left bank of 
the Brixentaler Ache to (27-2 M.) Soll-Leukental (restaurant), with 
large cement-factories. Below Schloss liter, which stands on a spur 
of the Hohe Salve to the left, the train enters the Brixentaler Klause, 
a rocky gorge, in which, beyond a short tunnel, it crosses the Ache. 

51/2 M. Hopfgarten (1970'; FUiale Post, at the station, 14 beds 
:it l-l"60 K.), 1 M. to the W. of the large market-village of that 
name (2030'; *Post, 20 beds at 1-1.60 iT.; Rose, 20 beds at 1.20- 
1.60 K.; Diewald; Krdmerwirt; Oberbrdu; Unterbrdu), a summer 
and winter resort with 2890 inhab. and a large rococo church. 

The 'Hohe Salve (6000'), the Rigi of the Lower Inntal, is one of the 
most popular and most easily accessible points of view in the German Alps. 
The conspicuous summit of the mountain is covered with turf, and forests 
and farm-houses extend more than halfway up its slopes. The ascent 
is most easily made from Hopfgarten (31/2 hrs. ; route marked; guide un- 
necessary j horse 10^.; 'chaise-a-porteurs' with 4 bearers 24 A".). — From 
the station we follow the road to the right to (20 min.) the village, then 
by the (5 min.) finger-post ascend to the left (path and marks defective 
in places) to (IV2 hr.) the Thennwirt (3820'; 12 beds, plain but good; horse 
to the summit 5 K.). The path now ascends to the left, and then to the 
right (numerous ^shortcuts), past the (1 hr.) Kalbn Alp (4935'), to the (1 hr.) 
Inn (40 beds at 1.20-2 A.), situated a little to the S. of the summit, 
on which stand a chapel and a cross 26' high. The *"View (comp. the 
Panorama) is magnificent, particularly to the S., where the complete Tauern 
chain is visible from the Hochtenn and Wiesbachhom to the Zillertal 
glaciers. Due S. rises the Gross -Venediger, to the left of which is the 
fantastic-looking Grosse Rettenstein in the Sperten-Tal; farther to the W, 
are the Northern Limestone Alps, with the Steinberger Spitze, nut unlike 
a church; to the N., the Grosse and Kleine Bolven, the Miesing, Wendel- 
stein, and, beyond the deep valley of the Inn, the imposing, serrated 
ridge of the Kaiser -Gebirge; E. the Loferer Steinberge, the Steinerne 
Meer. and, in the foreground, the Kitzbiihler Horn. 

From Brixen (p. 229) the Hohe Salve is ascended in 3 hrs. : we ascend 
by a bridle-path to the right, at the (1 hr.) chalets keep to the left (not 
straight on), apd at the (3/* hr.) chapel to the left to the Alp, and ascend 
in zigzags to the ('/4 hr.) top. — From Wesiendorf (p. 229), by bridle- 
path in 3 hrs. (last third of the route in poor condition). — From Soil 
(p. 226), poor bridle-path in 3-3V2 hrs. We proceed to the 8. to the Slamp- 
fanger Graben^ turn to the right before the (20 min.) chapel, and ascend 
via the Salven-Moser, the Angern Alp, and the Kolh Alp to the summit. 

To the S. of Hopfgarten opens the Kelchsau-Tal , watered by the 
Orundache and traversed by an interesting path over the Salzach-Joch to 
(9 hrs.) Krimml. Road (one-horse carr. 5 K.) via Horbrunn to (2 hrs.) 
Kelchsau (2590'; Neuwirt; Fnchswirt). About 1/2 hr. farther on the valley 
divides: on the right is the Lange Qrund, from which an uninteresting pass 
(guide advisable) leads through the Frommgrund and over the Frommel- 
Jock (7535'), between the Pollspitze and the Frommelkogl, to (8 hrs.) Gerlo$ 
(p. 235) ; on the left is the Kurze Grund, traversed by a bridle-path (guide 
not indispensable for experts) leading via the (2 hrs.) brandy-distillery of 
Schelchenrain (4680': acciimm )dation, 12 beds), the Kuhwild Alp (5695'), and 
the (2 hrs.) Salzach-Joch {Markkirchl, 6520'; magnificent view of the Tauern 
chain) to (-3 hrs.) Ronach in the Pinzgau (p. 189). The ascent of the "Schaf- 
siedel (8035'; 3-3V2 hrs., with guide) from Schelchenrain, via the Rosawild 
Alp and past three small lakes, is attractive and not difficult. — The route

bach (2655';rfmts.) and over the Filten- Sattel (5555'J to (6-7 hrs.) Wald 
in the Pinzgau (p. 189) is fatiguing. 

Above Hopfgarten, at Haslau, the train crosses the Brixentaler 
Ache, which here forms a waterfall, and turns to the right into the 
Windau-Tal (see above), on the W. side of which it ascends a steep 
gradient. Beyond a tunnel 360 yds. long the line bends back, 
and crosses to the E. side of the Windau-Tal by means of a curved 
viaduct 75' high. A second tunnel (220 yds. long) then leads to the 
upper level of the Brixen-Tal. — IIV2 M- "Westendorf (2500'; Zur 
Hohe Salve, at the station; ascent of the Hohe Salve, see p. 228), 
1 M. to the N.E. of the village (2575'; Kohlerwirt; Jakobwirt). 
Bad Westendorf (2&06'., 40 beds), with mineral and peat baths, lies 
VoM. to theS.W. — 13'/2 M. Lauterbach is the station for the vil- 
lage of Brixen im Tal (2610'; Mairwirt), 1 M. to the S.W. of which 
is the Maria- Luisenbad (2650'; chalybeate spring). — 16 M. Kirch- 
berg (2700'; Rail. Restaurant; Zum Bechl, 20 beds at 70 h.-i K.; 
Kalswirt; Raimoirt), a large village (1700 inhab.), at the entrance 
to the Sperten-Tal. 

Thrnngh the Sperten-Tal a cart-track leads past the Rettenstein Inn 
to (6 M.) Atchau (3325'; Gredwirt, plain but good-, guide, Joseph Sc/iroU), 
where the valley forks. The W. branch is the Untere Grundy through 
which an easy pass leads over the Geige (6660') to (1 hrs.) Neukirchen (p. life) 
in the Pinzgau; while throngh the E. branch, or Obere G'ri/ncf, we ascend 
the Stangen-Joch (5640') and thence either proceed t«» the left to (3 hrs.) 
Miihlbach (p. 188), or descend along the Ikluhlbach (guide advisable), by-

Excursions (guide, Johann Kriegler). "Op the Sch6nach-Tal to the 
(IV2 hr.) Iss-Aste (4810'); fine view of the head of the valley (Schonach 
Glacier, Zillerkopf, etc.)- — The Ebenfeld-Aste (6155'), I'A hr. to the N., 
affords a fine view of the Reichenspitz group. — Ascent of the Torhelm 
(8185'; 3V2-4 hrs., with guide), not difficult: the route ascends the AVwmm' 
bach-Tal to the N. to the end of the valley (Wilde Krimml), then turns to 
the right to the Hdmmerer- Scharte (p. 234) and mounts the W. side to 
the summit (excellent survey of the Zillertal Alps). — The Kreuzjoch 
(8230'), ascended by a marked path via the liieder-Tal in 3V2-4hrs., com- 
mands a similar view (see p. 231). 

From Gerlos to Matrhofen, 5 hrs., by a marked path descending 
at the village of Hainzenberg (p. 235) to the left, via Ramsau and Hol- 
lenzen. A preferable route leads over the Brandberger Joch (7 hrs.; marked 
path; guide, iOK., not indispensable for adepts). From the (1 hr.) Inn zur 
Kiihlen Rast (p. 235) we ascend the Schwarzach- Tal to the left to the 
Untere and Obere Schwarzach Alp and to the (1^/4 hr.) Brandberger Joch 
(7580*), between the Brandberger Kolm and the Torhelm (*View). Then we 
descend through the Brandberger Kar to Brandberg (p. 238) and (3 hrs.) 
Mayrhofen (p. 237). — From the Joch the Brandberger Kolm (8860'; guide 
2 K. extra), with a fine view of the Zillertal glaciers, may be ascended by 
experts in IV2 hr. without difficulty. 

We next pass the entrance to the Schbnach-Tal (see above), 
cross the Krummbach (4155'), and ascend through wood to the (1 hr.) 
Durlasboden (4600'), with view of the Pinzgauer Platte ; thence 
straight on across meadow-land to a (20 min.) guide-post pointing 
to the Zittauer Hiitte. Here the valley bends to the S. (^Wildgerlos- 
Tal, see below), and the background is formed by the Hohe Gabel, 
Reichenspitze, and Wildgerlosspitze, 

"Wildgerlos-Tal. A bridle-path (guide from Gerlos 7, from Zell 12, in 
connection with mountain-ascents iOK.), leading to the right at the above- 
mentioned guide-post, proceeds at first on the level via the Finkau Alp 
and Trissel Alp, then ascends in windings to the (4, from Zell 5V4 hrs.) 
Zittauer Hiitte (7645'; -//m, 10 beds and 8 mattresses; innkeeper and guide 
A. Ritsch), a club-hut finely situated on the Lower Oerlos Lake (boating). 
The rm<eW-oj9/ (10,100' ; 2V2hrs.; ynide 10 A'.), the iJoasitop/ (9335'; IV2 hr., 
easy ; guide 5 K.), the Mandlkarkop/m^'; 2 hrs.; 7 K.). the Oabelkopf {iO;i'iO'\ 
3-3'/2 hrs.; 9 A.), the Reichempitze (10,845'; 4 hrs.; guide 12, with descent 
to the Richter-Hiitte 14, to the Plauener Hiitte 16 A'.), and the Wildgerlos- 
spitze (10,770'; 4-4V2 hrs. ; 15 A^.), maybe ascended hence (the last two are 
difficult). — Easy and interesting passes lead from the Zittauer-Hiitte over 
the Rainbach- Scharte (S965') to the (3'/2 hrs.) Krimmler Tauern-Haut, and over 
the Rostkar - Scharte (8-30') to the (3 hrs.) Richter-Hiitte (comp. p. 191). — 
From the Trissel Alp to the Mitterplatten Inn via the Wildkar Alp^ path in 
bad repair (better route down the vallev via the Durlasboden, see above 
and p. 191). 

The path proceeds to the left angle of the wood descending from 
thePlattenkogel, and crosses the (10 min.) HoUenzer-Bach^ the fron- 
tier of Salzburg and Tyrol. About 7 min. farther on the road divides : 
to the left to Ronach and Wald, straight on to Krimml, and to the 
right to the Zittauer Hutte (see above). The direct route to the 
Pinzgau turns to the left and ascends along the Hollenzer-Bach, 
crossing the stream twice. It then turns sharply to the N. and 
reaches (2/4 hr.) the flat saddle of the Gerlos Pass or Pinzgauer Hohe 
(4875'), beyond which it descends to (1/2 hr.) Ronach (4625'; plain 
inn), Waldberg (^U hr. ; 3840'), and (8/4 hr.) Wald (p. 189). 

A more attractive route is the marked bridle-path crossing the 



ZilUrtnl. MAYRHOFEN. Map,p.234.— III. Ii.44. 237 

Pinzgauer Flatte to Krimuil (4 his. ; guide not iiidispeusable). 
The path leads straight on at the cross-road (p. 230 ; 1/2 l^r. from 
the Durlasboden), and ascends the N.W. slope of the Plattenkogel, 
then to the left to (3/4 hr.) * Waltl's /nn (^5560'; 24 beds at 1-2, pens. 
5-6 JT.) on the Mitterplatten Alp. Marked path hence to the [^ min.) 
Reichenspiti-Ansirht. — Proceeding towards the E., past the (i/o hr.^ 
Leitner Alp (5670'), we reach (^10 min.) the FUzstein Alp (5380; 
inn) on the V order platte^ beyond which the Pinzgau and the Krimml 
valley and its cascades come in sight. We now descend in zigzags 
through wood to (1 hr.) Krimml (p. 189). 

An even more picturesque route (red uiarks) , though 1 hr, lunger, 
crosses the Plattenkogel (guide not indispensable). At the (2V4 hrs.) Mitter- 
platten Inn (see above) we diverge to the right and ascend in a S.E. direc- 
tion, parsing (40 min.) three chalets (finger-post) to the (20 min.) green top 
of the ♦Plattenkogel (6690'), which commands a fine view of the Pinzgau, 
with the Dreiherrnspitze to the S.E., the Reichenspitze and Gerlos Glacier 
to the S.W . and Krimml and its waterfalls far below. We descend past 
the F.chwarzenberg Monument^ the route at first loading in a N.E. direction 
along the edge of a deep precipice, pass through a gate at the Handl 
chalets, and descend to the right or (better) keep straight on (marked path) 
to the Filzstein Alp (see above) and (IV2 brs.) Krimml. 



Beyond Zell the railway ascends the right bank of the Ziller, via 
( 17 '/o M. ) Ramsberg-Hippach and (18 M.) Biihel (Berger's Inn).

Mayrhofen (2065'), a village with 1300 inhab., the terminus of 
the Zillertal railway, is a much froquenteti summer-resort, beauti- 
fully situated in a green valley amidst lofty mountains (Ahoruspitze, 
Filzenberg, Tristner, Griinberg). The valley divides here into four 
branches ('Grunde'): E. the Zillergrund, S.K. the Stillup, S.W. the 
Zemmtal. W. the Tuxer Tal. 

Guides: Georg Kroll, Josef Danner, lAidwig Fankhai'ser, Jos. Wechsel-

Hntte (7 hrs.) 9, Greizer Hiitte (71/2 hrs.) 9, Planener Hiitte (8 hrs.) 10^. 

An attractive walk may be taken from Brugger's Hotel, along the easy 
Mariensteig on the left bank of the Ziller, through wood, up to (l»/4 hr.) 
Astegg (3850*; '^EherVs Inn) commanding a good view of the four 'Grlinde'' 
and of the mountain- chain from t!ie Gerlnswand to the Griinberg. We 
return by a stony footpatb (pretty views) via Finkenberg to (2 hrs.) Mayr- 
hofen. From Astegg we may ascend the 'Penkenberg (687U'; 2^/4 hrs.), via 
the Mdsing Alp (rfmts.); a fine point of view (guide not indispensable for 
adepts). — Another pleasant walk of 2 hrs. (there and back) may be taken 
to the Stillup - Elamm. A new rocky path, diverging to the left at the 
(20 min.) Inn zur Stillupklamm (see above; finger-post), ascends the right

bank of the Stillup-Bach (see p. 239), passing fine waterfalls, to the (*/* hr.) 
Wasserstes! (3000'), where it joins the old path (p. 239), by which we return. 
The *Ahomspitze (9T5U'i 6-6V2 brs. ; guide, not indispensable for adepts, 
12^.,- not difficult) cnmuaands a ma[;nificent view. Immediately beyond 
the (10 min.) bridge over the Zillerbach (see below) a winding path (red 
marks) ascends to the left mostly through wood via the (I'A hr.) Alpenrose 
Inn on the Loicer Fellenberg Alp (4565') to the (2'/2 hrs.) Edel-Uiitle in the 
Fellenhergkar f7340'; Inn, 24 beds at 3, 7 mattresses at 1.60 iT.) and to 
02 hrs.) the top. The descent may be made from the Edel-Hiitte by a club- 
path to the (1 hr.) Filzen Alp (6250'; fine view of the Stillup glaciers) 
and thence to the S.W. via the Kretzlherg Alp (5275') to (V4 hr.) the Lackner 
Inn in the Stillup- Tal (p. '259). 



The Zillergrnnd, which opens to the E. and is drained by the 
Zillerbach, is traversed by several fatiguing passes leading to the 
Ahrntal. The most frequented of these crosses the Heiliggeistj'dchl 
(13 hrs. from Mayrhofen toKasern; guide, not indispensable, 16 A".). 
From Mayrhofen a path (a new route is being made along the stream) 
ascends through wood to (IY2 ^ir-) Brandberg (3580'; Tanner), a 
picturesquely situated village (over the Brandberger Joch to Gerlos, 
see p. 236), and then proceeds on the right bank of the Zillerbach to 
[i^/-2hx.) HdiLsling (3450'; KroU, plain) and past the Hohenherg Alp 
to the (IV2 hr.) inn In der Au (4185'; bed 1-2 A'., well spoken of). 

The Grundschartner (10,030'; not difficult for experts) may be ascended 
hence via the Kaimen-Hiitten and the Kaimen Qlacier in 6 hrs. (guide 18.fi".; 
splendid view). The descent may be made to the (2V2 hrs.) Birberg Alp 
(p. 239). — Through the Sondergrund. which opens to the S. at the Au. a 
monotonous path (red mark?) via the Kainzen-HUtten (dlSO"), the Mitter- 
HiitUn (5630"), and the SchSn-Hiilten (58330, ascends, finally over debris, to 
(5 hrs.) the Horndl-Joch (8380': fine view of the Rieterferner. etc.), and then 
descends through the Hollenz-Tal to (2V2-3 hrs.) St. Jakob in the Ahrntal 
ft>. 483). — Instead of crossing the Horndl-Joch to St. Jakob, we may (in 
the .«ame time-, guide advi.sable) proceed over the Mitter-Joch (864.0') to 
St. Peter in the Ahrn-Tal. 

Ill the Zillergrnnd. 1 hr. above the Au Alp, is the Bdrenbad Alp 
(4700'; *Wegscheider's Inn ; the innkeeper is a good guide), where 
the valley divides: to the right the Hundskehl-Grund, to the left 
(straight on) the Zillergriindl. 

A much - frequented route (12V2-13 hrs. from Mayrhofen to St. Peter; 
guide, IG jr., advisable for novices) ascends to the right through the Huvds- 
kehl Gi-und past the Sulzen Alp, Neuhiitten, and Mitter-Hutten, and, beyond 
three small lakes, over debris ti) the (4 hrs.) Hundskehl-Joch (84*^0'), with 
a view of the Rieserferner, etc.. and thence descends to (3 hrs.) St. Peter 
(p. 4S3). — The Rauchkofel (10,670'; 5V2-6 hrs from the Barenbad Alp; 
fatiguing but interesting) may be ascended by diverging to the left at the 
first lake in (he Hundskehl-Urund and ascending the detritus-slope on the 
W. side (guide necessary, from Mayrhofen 15.fi.). Fine view from the top 
(comp. p. 484). The descent may be made to the HeiliggeistJochl (p. 239) 
or to the Waldner-See and St. Valentin (p. 483). — The Napfspitze (10,320'; 
3 hrs.), an attractive peak, not difficult for adepts, is ascended from the 
lower lake (see above) via the Hundskehl Glacier (guide 15, to St. Peter 22 A'.). 

Above the Barenbad, in the Zillergriindl, are the Zillerplatten 
Alp (5515'), the (1 hr.) Zillerhiitten Alp (5650'), and the (20 min.) 
Kuchelmoos Alp (5835'). Beyond the last the path ascends to the 
left to the (1 '/4 hr.; 8 hrs. from Mayrhofen) Plauener Hutte (7465';
