Hiking near the Schlegeis reservoir
The path along the shore of the reservoir offers a wonderful view of the Schlegeis glaciers and the highest mountain in the Zillertaler Alps, the Hochfeiler at 3,509 m. For pleasure hikers, a walk along the Schlegeis reservoir is a real real treat with a magnificent view of the Zillertaler Alps. All along the reservoir, benches and lounges invite you to linger and enjoy. Tyrolean delicacies are served at the Bergrestaurant Schlegeis, the Zamsereck snack station and the other mountain huts.
In addition to hikes to the mountain refuges in the surroundings, the Neumarkter Runde circular route, which passes the Olperer hut, is especially worth a hike.
Another tip for a hike is the climb through the scenic mountain valley "Zamser Grund" to the "Pfitscher-Joch-Haus" which is already in South Tyrol at an altitude of 2,277 m above sea level. This route was an option for crossing the Alps already in ancient times.
The marked paths have varying levels of difficulty and hiking times, so you are certain to find something to suit your preferences.
