The most famous viewpoint of the Stubai Alps
One of the most famous attractions of the Stubai Alps is the cable car leading over the Stubai Glacier to the Schaufeljoch pass (3,158m above sea level). From there you can go on a short ascent to the viewing platform with a stated height of 3,210 meters (which seems a bit high). From the lookout there is a very nice view, including the highest mountain of the Zuckerhütl range
View of the Schaufeljoch
View of the top station of the cable car and the adjacent peak, where there is a viewing platform.
Ascent to the TOP of Tyrol viewpoint
The exit is completely safe, it leads up iron stairs with railings on both sides.
View of the Stubai Glacier
Directly below us are the remains of the Stubai Glacier. We can actually see the beginning of the entire Stubai area. Below us, at the end of the glacier, you can also see the intermediate station of the cable car.
View of the Stubaier Wildspitze (3341 m)
The northwest view is then dominated by the beautifully pointed Stubaier Wildspitze
View of the Ötztal Alps
To the west, the Ötztal Alps are on the horizon. Right next to the viewing platform is a pointed peak, covering part of the view.
The view to the south is very nice. Directly below us is the small Gaisskarferner glacier
View of the Zuckerhütl
Zuckerhütl (3507 m) is the highest peak of the mountain range, you will see it on the southeast horizon.
A beautiful lake
After admiring the views on the platform, you can go a few hundred meters to the beautiful lake below the pass
View of the Schaufelspitze (3332 m)
If you want a much better view than the platform offers, take the hiking trail in an eastern direction to the Schaufelspitze (3332 m). The exit path is not difficult, but of course there is a certain step.
