Hiking Tour: “Wetterin from Niederalpl”

posted in: Easy, Hiking, Outdoor, Photos, Summer | 0

Promising and easy hiking tour up to Wetterin starting from the Niederalpl saddle. This easy tour first leads towards the Wetterinalm hut and then uses a gravel road that leads up to the summit of Wetterin. The summit cross is not directly reachable from the road but easily accessible via a nice hike through the mountain pasture. The summit provides an awesome surround view, especially towards Wildkamm and the Hohe Veitsch.
