Snowshoe Hike

Located on the sunny side of the Mieming Mountains, the Lehnberghaus (1,554 metres) is a popular destination for ski touring and winter walking. It can also be reached on snowshoes from the Gasthof Arzkasten using a wide trail. From the Lehnberghaus itself it is just a further 30 minutes to the "Lacke" viewing platform, where visitors can look forward to magnificent views of the Inn Valley and the peaks of the Sellrain Valley. The trail is also used as a toboggan run, so be sure to walk on the side to avoid collissions. Up at the top, there is the option of hiring a toboggan from the Lehnberghaus and whizzing back down to the starting point.

Trail description

From the car park at the Gasthof Arzkasten, follow the signs to the "Lehnberghaus" (trail number 22). The wide path,  which is also used as a toboggan run, heads into the Lehnbergtal Valley. Please make sure to walk on the side of the trail in order to avoid collisions with oncoming tobogganers. Shortly after the bridge crossing the river onto the eastern side, turn off the trail to the left and head through a wide opening in the forest. After a few hundred metres the trail leads back onto the toboggan run. At the Lehnberghaus (1,554 metres) take a break or continue on to the "Lacke" viewing platform (1,704 metres). In good weather conditions, visitors can look forward to fine views over the Mieming Plateau, the Inn Valley and the peaks of the Sellrain Valley. The final 150 vertical metres are a little steeper but still pose no serious problems. Those with energy left can continue in a south-westerly direction to the Jöchle (1,786 metres). Otherwise, hea back down along the way you came. At the  Lehnberghaus there is the option of hiring a toboggan and whizzing back down to the starting point.
