meet me before sunrise
Early-morning hike to the Tristkogel mountain
There are few experiences like hikign through the mountains in the early hours of the morning as the sun is about to rise from behind the majestic mountains. Sunrise hikes are without a doubt worth the effort!
The day begins at around 4:00. After driving to the Lindlingsalm, the walk to the Tristkogel (2095 m) at the end of the valley begins. There are several steep sections, but the views from the summit are absolutely breathtaking.
After a few minutes, the gentle morning light breaks over the mountain ridge and bathes the craggy rockfaces in hues of red and orange. It is an incredibly romantic experience that is best shared with the one you love and sealed with a kiss.
Once the sun has risen, it is time to head back to the hotel for a well-deserved hearty breakfast. The hike to the Tristkogel mountain and back takes around 5 hours.
We recommend that you hire the services of an experienced mountain guide. The Joker Card, which is included in your stay, gives free access to sunrise hikes in the company of a trained guide. Hans, a local mountain guide who knows the region like the back of his hand, will be happy to join you for this unforgettable adventure.
Location: drive to Lindlingalm; please speak to a member of staff at reception for details on the route and information about the weather forecast
