Once aloft on those airy plains between the Inn and Lech rivers, you'll be in a true alpine environment. You can expect to have very few encounters on this trail, so if you enjoy solitude and a good work-out this trail is for you. This hike is famous for its sharp ridges and the feeling of remoteness its rugged terrain offers. However, you’ll need to turn your focus from the scenery to your feet as you tackle steep climbs, scree and talus slopes, large boulders and cliffs assisted by a fixed anchoring system of cables. You’ll gain the ridge of Östliche/Hintere Dremelscharte and walk past a necklace of sparkling alpine lakes adorning bold mountain faces. Adventurous souls who are up for the extra effort can take the detour to Schlenkersee lake, an aquatic gem in gorgeous scenery just below the the Östliche Dremelscharte ridge.
Eagle View · Cupped in a high glacier cirque, the pristine and emerald Parzinn lakes are two of the prettiest alpine lakes in this area and grant fine views of the nearby Dremelspitze mountain and Dremelscharte ridge. A multitude of blossoms proliferate along this rugged terrain. When you tire of the rainbow of wildflowers on the ground, you can look up to find breathtaking vistas around every corner.
Eagle Kick · The scramble section up onto the Rosskarscharte ridge has exposed areas and a narrow gully that can be treacherous and slippery in rain. Although the trail is assisted by a fixed anchoring system of cables, it requires use of hands in places. The scramble route continues on the descent as the trail drops down to a narrow and steep rock-filled chute. A warm welcome and hearty meal at the Württemberger Haus are a fine reward for all that hard work.
Tip! There is a Black Diamond Service Station at the Württemberger Haus, where hikers who have broken a walking pole or lost a glove can get a free replacement.
