At the base of the Gerlossteinwand

Description

On the giants' shoulders

We take the Gerlosstein cable car to get to the starting point of our panoramic tour. The bold Gerossteinwand lies just in front of us. Our hike leads us over the shoulders of the giant through Krummholz and across lush alpine grass to the picturesque Heimjöchl. Slowly the Brandberger Kolm (2,700 m) comes into our view. It is the prominent local mountain of the nature park community Brandberg. On the way to the second crossing, the Brandberger Joch, overwhelming views of the Zillertal and Tux Alps are awaiting us. After a stop at the Kolmhaus we descend via the forest path to the mountain village of Brandberg.
