Mountain Hike
Wiesbadener Hütte

Measuring just under 15 kilometres in length, this hike leads through high alpine terrain to the Wiesbadener Hütte (2,443 metres) and offers fine views of the Piz Buin, at 3,312 metres the highest mountain in the Austrian province of Vorarlberg. The hut is a good base from which to climb the Piz Buin and other surronding peaks. This walk begins and ends at the Silvretta reservoir at Bielerhöhe (2,030 metres). All in all the hike of intermediate difficulty, though walkers will need good overall fitness and sure-footedness in high alpine terrain.

Trail description

The starting point of the hike, Bielerhöhe, can be easily reached by car or bus from Galtür. From here, the trail runs in a south-easterly direction along the Silvretta dam until a wide hiking trail branches off at a signpost branches left gently uphil into the Bieltal Valley. Follow this path to the stream and continue along a narrow hiking trail through the Bieltal Valley. This is followed by a serpentine ascent to the Radsattel at an altitude of 2,652 metres before descending again to the Wiesbadener Hütte. Here you will be able to see the Ochsental glacier, the Silvrettahorn (3,244 metres) and the Schneeglocke (3,223 metres). The view of the summit of Piz Buin is impressive, not least during a culinary refreshment on the sunny terrace outside the hut. Return to Bielerhöhe the way you came.
