Ranking among the supreme ridge-running, cloud-probing, flower-swaying, peak-peering jaunts in all of the Lechtal Alps, the trek to Memminger Hütte Hut will have you hopping with joy with its nonstop horizon-spanning views of jagged ridges, cirques, flanks and colossal summits, though you'll work hard to reap those rewards. Once aloft on the ridgetop, the trail gains 2,657-metre Großbergspitze Spire and 2,612-metre Großbergkopf Peak along a precipice that is assisted by a fixed anchoring system of cables. A vigorous climb switchbacks up to Seescharte Notch; beyond it’s a knee-jarring descent to Memminger Hut, where a necklace of three sparkling Alpine lakes is flanked by rocky peaks.
Eagle View · From this peak-packed, view-granting ridge high in the Lechtal Alps, stand mesmerized, frozen in awe, utterly fixated on the alluring Patroltal Valley. Gaze down to the valley end, carpeted in vivid greenery and sprinkled with delicate-needled larches. From the top of Großbergspitze Spire you’ll get a superb panorama of nearly every peak in the environs.
Eagle Kick · You’ll need to turn your focus from the scenery to your feet as you tackle the steep and exposed descent from Großbergkopf Peak. Peak baggers may want to nab the two Spießrutenspitzen Pinnacles, including a class II and IV scramble to the summit, but wildflower admirers will be perfectly content staying on the ridge-running, flower-swaying trail.
