Mountain tours in the Hohe Tauern around the Fürthermoar Alm

Mountaineers watch out!

Discover around the Fürthermoar Alm the region Zell am See Kaprun with a breathtaking scenery on the high mountain reservoirs of the Verbund.

The tours around the Fürthermoar Alm are very varied and suitable for ambitious mountaineers as well as for families and children. The breathtaking view stretches as far as the Großglockner, the Speicherseen and all the famous peaks of the Hohe Tauern and the glacier world.

Kleiner & großer Grießkogel

From the Moserboden reservoir, follow path no. 734 in a steep meadow southwest up to approx. 2,500 m. Over the Sedlgrat Kopf to approx. 2,541 m we climb quite easily to the small Grießkogel. If you decide to stop here, then you have already achieved a lot. The magnificent panorama reaches as far as the Großglockner, which you should definitely have a look at. If the mountain tour continues, then the climb over a blocked area which is often still covered by firn fields in spring. From here we climb up the increasingly steep ridge, which throws us some tricky passages. At the end of the ascent, there is a quite steep passage, which can often be covered by firn and ice. In case of doubt, crampons should be used here. First, we reach the eastern summit and now only a short but exposed ridge separates us from the highest point of the tour, the Grosse Grießkogel at 3,066 m. Experienced mountaineers can climb to the top of the Hocheiser.

The tour across the Kapruner Törl

The hike starts at the Alpinzentrum Rudolfshütte. This can be reached by cable car from the station in the valley at Enzinger Boden, at the rear Stubachtal valley from the village of Uttendorf. At the Rudolfshütte we first enjoy the breathtaking panorama of the world of the Hohe Tauern. Then we descend via Hinteren Schafsbichl to Tauernmoossee. From the lake, we go uphill towards Kapruner Törl, which we reach after approx. 500 hm. From the Törl at approx. 2,640 m the path leads down towards the Mooserboden reservoir. It goes down over moraines and debris and there might be some firn fields to cross - depending on the season. Finally, we take the "Arno" trail no. 716 along the reservoir to the huge dam wall, which we cross. From there we reach in approx. 1⁄2 hour the Fürthermoar Alm, where a great stop and possibly an overnight stay wait.

The way over the Kammscharte

Starting point of the tour is the alpine centre at the Kitzsteinhorn. You can easily reach it with the Kaprun glacier lifts. Directly under the distinctive "very high cable car support" in the glacier ski area, trail no. 726 leads quite simply in the direction of Kammscharte. We reach this after approx. 300 hm. From the Kammscharte it goes downhill and the terrain becomes steeper and the path more exposed. Some places must be overcome with easy climbing in connection with rope safety devices. You can see your way through the magnificent panorama of the Hohe Tauern - but never let the path out of your sight. After the descent we finally reach the Fürthermoar Alm, where a great alpine snack or other delicacies await us.

Final ascent with shuttle buses at 15.30 sharp. Final descent 16.45 sharp.

The way to the Wiesbachhorn

Our starting point is the Fürthermoar Alm. After a rich alpine pasture breakfast we set off towards the Mooserboden reservoir and cross the mighty dam wall. Behind it you can already see the zigzag path to Heinrich-Schwaiger-Haus. In many serpentines it goes up to 2.802 m, where the Schutzhaus invites to a short rest. Directly behind it, the path follows in an easterly direction through the striking chimney, which is equipped with fuses. Then we continue steeply up to Fochezkopf and over the Kaindlgrat. From the ridge we follow the steep west flank to the summit ridge of the Großen Wiesbachhorn. Here you have to reckon with partly icy firn fields in spring. Master the descent as on the same path as the ascent.

Final ascent with shuttle buses at 15.30 sharp. Final descent 16.45 sharp.

The way to the Hohe Tenn via the Gleiwitzer Hütte

We start our tour at the Gletscherbahnen Kaprun and follow the path to the Brandlscharte and the Imbachhorn (2,470 m). Those who climb the Imbachhorn then return to the Brandlscharte and reach the Gleiwitzerhütte - our overnight station - from there through the north-western flank of the Rettenzinks. On the following day we start via the Gleiwitzer Höhenweg into the Ochsenkar. Very exposed with rope protection we reach the Hintere Spitzbrett via the Jägerscharte. We climb up the west flank of the Kempsenspitz and from there follow the sign "Hoher Tenn".

A rope-insured, steep ridge leads down to the Hirzbachtörl and from there along the ridge to the "Kleiner Tenn" (3,158 m). The steep northern flank is climbed over with rope insurance and then passes into the middle ridge to Schneetenn (3,317 m). For the way back we take the easier path directly to the Mooserboden reservoir. We walk over the Kleine Tenn and the Bauernbrachkopf. From there a partly insured path leads into the viola flank and then technically easily down about 1,000 hm to the reservoir. From there we take the bus to the stop Fürthermoar Alm, where a great stop awaits our tired mountaineer legs. Then we either spend the night on the alp or continue the bus ride to the Gashaus Kesselfall.
