Summit Hike
Wildes Mannele (3,023 metres)

Despite its height of over 3,000 metres, the Wildes Mannele in the Ötztal Alps is relatively easy to climb. From the summit there are fine views of the Wildspitze (3,768 metres), the second-highest mountain in Austria. The Breslauer Hütte (2,844 metres) on the way back down offers a good place to reflect on the hike over a cool drink.

Trail description

The adventure begins with a spectacular ride on the Wildspitzlift, a two-man chairlift whisking hikers quickly and easily up the 469 vertical metres from Vent to Stablein. It is here that the hike begins. Take trail 919, initially leading through meadows with grazing sheep, towards the Breslauer Hütte. At the fork in the trail signposted "Breslauer Hütte – Wildes Mannle" turn right, cross under a ski lift and head up towards the mountain from the south. The terrain becomes increasingly rocky the higher you get. The final few sections are secured with steel ropes anchored into the rock for safety. The reward for all that hard work is a fantastic view from the summit at 3,023 metres above sea level, including the mighty Wildspitze to the north-west.

The descent does not lead back along the way you came. Instead, head north from the summit until you reach a marking indicating a turning left to "Rofenkar". Here, again, there are steel ropes to hold on to. Descend via a small glacier lake before climbing once again to the Breslauer Hütte (2,844 metres), a good place to stop for a rest. Finally, take trail 919 down to the top station of the chairlift at Stablein.
