We can take a number of beautiful trips around Hintertux. The most famous of these is, of course, a trip to the Hintertux Glacier, which can be divided into several interesting stages in a completely different landscape. The first is the transfer from the valley of the Tuxenbach stream to the beautiful landscape around the first intermediate station of the Sommberg cable car, lying at an altitude (2,027 m above sea level)

View from Madseit

The access road to Hintertux leads through the wide picturesque Tuxertal valley. The surroundings of the river and the towns are covered with meadows, above them there are beautiful coniferous forests. From the town of Madseit there is already a beautiful view of the countryside that our trip will lead. The mountain in the foreground is Kleiner Kaserer (3093 m) and below it is the distinct Sommberg.

The starting point of the trip

We drive through Hintertux and in another kilometer there is a huge parking lot, several huge hotels and the lower station of the cable car. From here you can take a short walk to the Schraubenfall waterfall and the Schraubenfallhöhle gor­ge.

Glacier Bus 1

The cable car leading to the first Sommberg intermediate station is called Gletscherbus 1 and will lift you up 500 meters. The climb is quite steep, because the cable car takes you through a huge terrain break at the end of the valley

View back to the valley

Looking back, you can see the valley stretching to the horizon and the strongly expanding area around the lower station of the cable car

Arrival at Sommberg station

The steep climb of the cable car ends, we get over the edge of the terrain break. A picturesque world of meadows surrounded by mountain giants opens up to us. We see the continuation of the cable car towards the bottom of the glacier. It also shows how many glaciers have disappeared in recent decades.

Walk to the lookout

From Sommberg you can take a number of nice hikes, such as the Tuxerjochhaus with the nearby Pfannköpfl (2388 m) or the Weiße Wand (2518 m). If you have little time or continue by cable car to the upper floors, at least take a walk to the view of the famous Lärmstange mountain (2686 m)

Hintertux even for small children

The walk around the prospects is really comfortable and can be done even by small children. In general, the whole area around Sommberg is very suitable for families with small children

View of the Hintertux Glacier

A good challenge for physically fit cyclists – or less able to drive with an electric drive – is the road that supplies the second intermediate station of the Fernerhaus cable car by another 600 meters above sea level.
