Tour tips in the Sellraintal Valley
Tour for beginners
Potsdamer Hütte pasture
From the car park at the big bend on the Götzner Landesstraße road at the entrance to the Fotschertal valley, the route takes a long but panoramic ascent through the valley, past Bergheim in the Fotsch to the Potsdamer Hütte. Descent like ascent.
- Difference in altitude: 911 metres
- Duration: 02:30 hrs
- Highest point: 1.999 metres above sea level
Sömen via Juifenalm
Almost undisturbed, the white slopes of the Sellrain mountains lure you up to the Juifenalm. The starting point is the car park of the toboggan run to the Juifenalm in Gries. Right at the beginning, a relatively steep forest belt has to be conquered. To make it a little easier, you can follow the toboggan track up to the Juifenalm. If you choose the toboggan track over the shortcut through the steeper forest path, you have to expect a slightly longer walking time. Behind the pasture, the trail goes up to the unmanaged Kühgrüblalm and further past the enormous, extensive northwest slopes of the Kühgrübl. It goes steadily upwards to the back of the Kühwarte and the saddle, from where you can already see the summit cross. Descent along the ascent.
- Difference in altitude: 1.361 metres
