Tour description

This is a short tour in the snowy winter landscape – ideal for families, beginners and those who simply want to enjoy themselves. The ascent from Niederbauen to Chulm is possible from both the east and west (see option below). The tour is short, technically easy and it rewards you with an unexpectedly nice view.


Option A: A somewhat steeper ascent from Äbnet from the western side.


You can rent snowshoes and poles at a lodge called Berggasthaus Niederbauen. They also offer guided tours.
