Austria, Tyrol – Tourism, Ferratas, and History

Published: 28.9.2020
Today we have an eleven-kilometer trip along the ridges of the Algava Alps, which you can diversify with the local ferrata of C / D difficulty. So let's get to it.

From the town of Tannheim, we take the cable car to the first peak of Neunerköpfle, which lies at an altitude of 1862 meters. A stony trail leads directly to the top, where you will find a large wooden cross and a wonderful view of the surrounding mountain landscape. The path then continues around the Vogelhorn mountain, which is located at an altitude of 1881 meters. The route is not difficult, we are still practically on the ridges. After a few kilometers we pass other peaks Stripdenscharte and Gappenfeldscharte and in a nearby chalet we stop for a snack and Austrian beer. Meadows bloom all around us, spotted cows graze and sometimes a bird of prey flies over our heads.

Lache a Traualpsee

The trail continues around our highest peak today, Schochenspitze, which lies at an altitude of 2,068 meters above sea level, and then a gradual descent to the beautiful blue lakes of the Algavian Alps awaits us. The scenery is absolutely amazing. We pass the smallest Lache first, behind which there is again a mountain hut, where this time even cooking. You can also get to the already mentioned ferrata from here or observe climbers from a distance, heading for the top of the Lachenspitze along a large wall.

From Lake Lache we continue down past nice waterfalls to the larger lake Traualpsee. Here you can even bathe in nice weather. But what surprises us much more is the small herd of llamas. We really don't expect them here, however, the llamas are very nice and like to humorously set themselves up for photos. However, the last and largest lake - Vilsalpsee - is the best for swimming. The water is wonderfully clean, lukewarm, but refreshing. On one side of the lake there is another mountain hut and a large grassy beach. From here it is only four kilometers down the road back to the town of Tannheim, however there is a regular bus service. It is possible to complete the whole trip with a dog, but don't forget to pay for the cable car for it and have it on a leash near the herds.

Neuschwanstein Castle is just outside the border. It was built by Louis II. Bavarian and mixes several architectural styles. The castle was completed in the second half of the 19th century, but the public had the opportunity to visit it after World War II. At the bottom under the castle there are a lot of paid parking lots and up there is both a pedestrian and a path for cyclists, there are also minibuses. The best view of the whole castle is from Marienbrücke, but you may have to wait a really long queue before you are let on the lookout bridge. The number of people is regulated due to the covid-19 virus pandemic. From the viewpoint it is only a short walk to the castle itself, it is possible to visit the interior. The ring road is less than five kilometers long.
