After a good night’s sleep in Pinegg, take a walk from Gwercherwirt Inn over the bridge across Brandenberger Ache River and follow 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 old Lahnalm Alpine Pasture 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 newfound energy and continue on the Eagle Walk a little further: cross Steinberger Ache River to get to Vordersteinberg, then take Bärenwald Path through the forest to cosy Waldhäusl Inn, where it is possible to stay overnight.
Eagle View ·Steinberg am Rofan (elev. 1,010m) is nestled between the massif of 2,195-metre Guffert Peak and three-peak Unutz Mountain, which is part of the Rofan Mountain Range. Enjoy wonderful views from the cemetery in Steinberg: You will see not only the sky, but also the Alpine glow of the jagged Klobenjoch mountain faces in the Rofan Mountain Range.
Eagle Kick ·Guffert Mountain provides a rewarding grade 1 rock climbing opportunity. Its majestic barren rocky spires that raise out of the south-facing pine dwarf slopes seem beyond reach but in fact the summit block requires a bit of exposed scrambling. Hot in the height of summer, this climb is a delight in the early morning sun, giving Guffert Mountain a brilliant glow that makes for an enthralling way to kick off your day.
