After a good night’s sleep in Pinegg, take a walk from the Gasthof Gwercherwirt Inn over the bridge across the Brandenberger Ache river and follow the Jägersteig path all the way to Aschau, a hamlet of Brandenberg. Take the paved road to get to Burgstallgraben, from where the path winds up to Wimm, Wimmerjoch peak and the old Lahnalm hut. From there, walk across Weißenbachgraben gorge to reach the “most beautiful end of the world”: Steinberg am Rofan. The surroundings are so beautiful that it is tempting to stay for a while, but use your new-found energy and continue on the Eagle Walk a little further. Cross the Steinberger Ache river to get to Vordersteinberg, then take the Bärenwald path through the forest to the cosy Waldhäusl guesthouse, where it is possible to stay overnight.
Eagle View · Steinberg am Rofan (1,010 metres above sea level) is nestled between the massif of the 2,195-metre Guffert mountain and three-peak Unutz mountain, which is part of the Rofan Mountains. HIkers can enjoy wonderful views from the cemetery in Steinberg: you will see not only the huge sky but also the alpine glow of the sun setting on the jagged slopes of the Klobenjoch in the Rofan Mountains.
Eagle Kick · Guffert mountain provides a rewarding grade 1 rock climbing opportunity. Climbers must have a good head for heights and be sure-footed. Hot in the height of summer, this climb is a delight in the early morning sun.
