Mountain Hike
Berggeistweg St. Christoph

This circular walk of intermediate difficulty in the Arlberg Mountains leads from St. Christoph over the regional border to the Kaltenberghütte hut in neighbouring Vorarlberg. Walkers can look forward to untouched nature and total peace and quiet. From the Maroital Valley there are fine views of St. Anton and the impressive Patteriol peak (3,056 metres) to the south. The Kaltenberghütte hut itself also has a majestic panorama of the Klostertal Valley all the way to the Flexenpass (1,773 metres) and the Lech Alps and Verwall Massif on the other side of the valley. The lake next to the hut, at almost 2,000 metres above sea level, provides refreshment on hot days.

Trail description

Above the Gasthof Valluga in St. Christoph is where we start our hike. A trail leads gently uphill through the Maroital Valley to the top of the cable car station at Albonagrat and then, mostly gently downhill, over to the Kaltenberghütte hut. From there, take the "Paul-Bantlin-Weg" trail downhill past the Albonaseen lakes back to St. Christoph.
