Highlights of the tour

Zittauer Hütte (2329m) is located on a ridge rasped plain by glacial ice, right next to lake Wildgerlossee. The great location right next to the lake, a beautiful view across the peaks of Reichenspitzgruppe, a hight of 3300m and the glaciers of Wildgerloskees turn this hike into a wonderful experience.


We recommend strong footwear. The steep fold slide is secured by ropes.
